Dieulafoy's lesion: a rare cause of lower gastrointestinal bleeding.

Conn Med 2013 Oct;77(9):529-32

Yale-New Haven Hospital, New Haven, USA.

The most common etiologies of lower gastrointestinal bleeding include ischemia, diverticulosis, and angiodysplasia. A Dieulafoy's lesion, an uncommon cause of upper gastrointestinal bleeding, is even more rare as an etiology of lower gastrointestinal bleeding. We report a case of an elderly patient with abrupt hematochezia requiring stabilization and blood transfusions. Read More

Simultaneous occurrence of gastric antral vascular ectasia and protein-losing enteropathy in chronic graft-versus-host disease.

Int J Hematol 2013 Apr 3;97(4):529-34. Epub 2013 Feb 3.

Department of Pediatrics, Mie University Graduate School of Medicine, 2-174 Edobashi, Tsu, Mie, Japan.

Gastric antral vascular ectasia (GAVE) leading to upper gastrointestinal bleeding is a heterogeneous disorder that is not commonly recognized in hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). Protein-losing enteropathy (PLE) is noted as another gastrointestinal complication in the context of chronic graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) after HSCT. The possibility of a relationship between these two distinct gastrointestinal disorders, however, remains obscure. Read More

Transarterial embolization in acute colonic bleeding: review of 11 years of experience and long-term results.

Int J Colorectal Dis 2013 Jun 4;28(6):777-82. Epub 2012 Dec 4.

Clinic for Visceral Surgery and Transplantation, Department of Surgery, University Hospital of Geneva, Rue Gabrielle-Perret-Gentil 4, 1211, Geneva, Switzerland.

Background: Lower gastrointestinal bleeding represents 20 % of all gastrointestinal bleedings. Interventional radiology has transformed the treatment of this pathology, but the long-term outcome after selective embolization has been poorly evaluated. The aim of this study is thus to evaluate the short-term and long-term outcomes after selective embolization for colonic bleeding. Read More

Distribution of bleeding gastrointestinal angioectasias in a Western population.

World J Gastroenterol 2012 Nov;18(43):6235-9

Section of Gastroenterology, Department of Medicine, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, New Orleans, LA 70112, USA.

Aim: To define which segments of the gastrointestinal tract are most likely to yield angioectasias for ablative therapy.

Methods: A retrospective chart review was performed for patients treated in the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center Gastroenterology clinics between the dates of July 1, 2007 and October 1, 2010. The selection of cases for review was initiated by use of our electronic medical record to identify all patients with a diagnosis of angioectasia, angiodysplasia, or arteriovenous malformation.

Chromogranin A cell density in the rectum of patients with irritable bowel syndrome.

Mol Med Rep 2012 Dec 18;6(6):1223-5. Epub 2012 Sep 18.

Section for Gastroenterology, Department of Medicine, Stord Helse-Fonna Hospital, Stord, Norway.

In a previous study, chromogranin A (CgA) cell density in the colon of patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) was found to be reduced. It has been suggested that intestinal CgA cell density may be used as a marker for the diagnosis of IBS. The rectum harbours a larger number of large intestinal endocrine cells and is more accessible for biopsies than the colon. Read More
