Clinical characteristics and surgical outcome in children with intussusceptions secondary to pathologic lead points: retrospective study in a single institution.

Pediatr Surg Int 2019 Mar 14. Epub 2019 Mar 14.

Department of Pathology, The First Affiliated Hospital of Wenzhou Medical University, Wenzhou, China.

Background: Intussusception secondary to pathologic lead points (PLPs) is a potential surgical emergency and almost all cases need surgery. The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical manifestations, physical examinations and surgical outcomes of secondary intussusception (SI) caused by PLPs, as well as to improve the diagnosis and treatment of PLPs in children and infants.

Materials And Methods: We retrospectively reviewed the records of 83 children and infants who were diagnosed with intussusception secondary to PLPs in our institution. Read More

The persistence of the embryonic vitelline duct can lead to omphalomesenteric duct anomalies. A wide variety of anomalies, depending on the remnant segment and its degree of involution, may occur as a result of the omphalomesenteric duct failing to obliterate completely. The most frequent omphalomesenteric duct anomaly is Meckel's diverticulum, which is present in approximately 2-3 % of the population. Read More

A previously healthy 11-year-old boy with intermittent abdominal pain and bloody stool underwent Meckel scintigraphy. On the initial images, there was a faint U-shaped activity in the mid-abdominal region, which gradually faded and evolved into distinct foci of radiotracer accumulation in the later images. One of the foci changed its location during the study, suspected as moving Meckel diverticulum. Read More

Pseudodiverticula of the Small Intestine Associated With Idiopathic Smooth Muscle Hypertrophy in Domestic Rabbits ( Oryctolagus cuniculus).

Vet Pathol 2019 Jan 21;56(1):152-156. Epub 2018 Aug 21.

1 Institute of Veterinary Pathology, Freie Universität Berlin, Berlin, Germany.

Acquired outpouches of the intestinal tract are referred to as pseudodiverticula or false pulsion diverticula. In contrast to true diverticula, in which the wall contains all layers of the intestinal tract, the wall of pseudodiverticula lacks the tunica muscularis. Smooth muscle hypertrophy of the small intestine is commonly considered a cause of pseudodiverticulosis in animals due to increased intraluminal pressure. Read More

Eur J Gastroenterol Hepatol 2018 09;30(9):1009-1012

Department of Gastroenterology, Ankara Training and Research Hospital, Ankara, Turkey.

Background: The use of needle-knife fistulotomy technique in patient with periampullary diverticula (PAD) for biliary duct cannulation may lead to risk of complications. The present study aimed to investigate the association between PAD and the complications of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), unsuccessful cannulation rates and to determine the rates of cannulation complications using sphincterotomy and needle-knife fistulotomy.

Materials And Methods: The ERCP procedures were held in Gastroenterology Endoscopy Unit between September 2015 and October 2016 and were retrospectively evaluated. Read More

Heterotopic pancreas without Meckel's diverticulum in children as unique cause of gastrointestinal bleeding: think about it!

Surg Radiol Anat 2018 Aug 21;40(8):963-965. Epub 2018 May 21.

Service de Chirurgie Infantile, Hôpital de la Timone, 13005, Marseille Cedex 20, France.

Ectopic pancreas also known as heterotopic pancreas (HP) is a rare congenital anomaly, mainly found as incidental finding during autopsy or abdominal exploration for an other condition. Incidence rate is probably underestimated as patients are mostly asymptomatic; otherwise, it is capable of producing symptoms depending on its location, size, often appearing in the 4th-to-6th decades. Complications such as inflammation, obstruction, bleeding, and malignancy degeneration must be considered. Read More

Axial Torsion and Infarction of Meckel\'s Diverticulum in the 3rd Trimester of Pregnancy.

Chirurgia (Bucur) 2018 Mar-Apr;113(2):266-269

Meckel's diverticulum is a congenital anomaly which can become complicated or remain asymptomatic throughout life. During pregnancy, however, diverticulum infection could become a serious complication. Diverticulum necrosis and perforation are complications that increase morbidity in pregnancy, both maternal and fetal. Read More

Endoscopic papillary large balloon dilation in patients with large biliary stones and periampullary diverticula: Results of a multicentric series.

Dig Liver Dis 2018 Aug 6;50(8):828-832. Epub 2018 Apr 6.

Digestive Endoscopy Unit, University Hospital G. Fucito, Ruggi d'Aragona, Salerno, Italy.

Introduction: Stone extraction represents the most frequent indication for endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). Endoscopic papillary large balloon dilation (EPLBD) is a recent introduced approach consisting of an endoscopic papillary large balloon dilation following limited endoscopic sphyncterotomy (ES), which has been proven to be safe and effective for extraction of large common bile duct (CBD) stones. Peri-ampullary diverticula (PAD) are described in 10-20% of patients undergoing ERCP. Read More

A newborn patient with both annular pancreas and Meckel's diverticulum: A case report of an unusual association.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Apr;97(17):e0583

Department of Pediatric Surgery, Children's Hospital of Soochow University, Suzhou, China.

Rationale: Annular pancreas (AP) is recognized as a cause of duodenal obstruction in children, while children with Meckel's diverticulum (MD) are usually asymptomatic. Here we present a rare case with both AP and MD, which was identified by abdominal exploration during diamond-shaped duodenoduodenostomy.

Patient Concerns: A "double-bubble" sign was found by ultrasound at 35 week of pregnancy. Read More

In this case, we describe a 9-month old girl with no previous medical or surgical history who presented with a small bowel obstruction. Read More
