Department of Medicine, Division of Gastroenterology, WVU University Hospital, Morgantown, WV, USA.

Lumen-apposing metal stents (LAMS) use in gastrointestinal endoscopy has been on the rise for various indications for the last few years. Currently, LAMS is a well-established treatment for post-pancreatitis peri-pancreatic fluid collections and walled-off necrosis (WON), but it is still not a standard of care in the treatment of post-surgical fluid collections (PSFC). Most of the earlier studies for treatment of PSFC utilized double pigtail plastic stents (DPS). Read More

species are Gram positive anaerobic or microaerophilic bacteria that are part of the human flora in the oropharyngeal, gastrointestinal, and genitourinary tract. In the presence of a mucosal injury, they can become pathogenic and infect the underlying tissue without respect for tissue planes, leading to abscesses, fistulas, and sinus tracts. Through contiguous and hematogenous spread, virtually any organ can become infected. Read More

Department of Medical Biotechnologies, Section of Pathology, University of Siena, 53100 Siena, Italy.

Thyroid transcription factor (TTF-1) is a tissue-specific nuclear transcription factor expressed developing thyroid, respiratory epithelium, and diencephalon. TTF-1 is thought to be expressed specifically in most thyroid tumors and in a significant subset of pulmonary neoplasms. However, recent studies on its expression in extrapulmonary carcinomas have demonstrated that TTF-1 is not as specific for lung and thyroid carcinomas as was previously thought: positivity of this marker can be observed, although much less frequently, in some carcinomas arising in other organs, such as the ovaries, endometrium, colon, and breast, as well as in some tumors of the central nervous system.

Infected Renal Cyst as a Complication of Dropped Gallstones during Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy.

Case Rep Gastrointest Med 2018 30;2018:2478245. Epub 2018 Sep 30.

NYU Winthrop Hospital, Department of Radiology, 259 1st Ave, Mineola, NY 11501, USA.

Dropped gallstones are a relatively common complication, occurring in 3% to 32% of laparoscopic cholecystectomies performed, depending on various intraoperative risk factors. However, complications arising from dropped gallstones are relatively rare, occurring in fewer than 1% of such patients, and can include abscesses and inflammatory masses confined to the subhepatic space, presenting days to years later. We report a patient who developed an infected renal cyst as a result of dropped gallstones, which created a fistula from the duodenum to a previously simple right renal cyst, which was initially identified on an abdominal CT scan.
