Gastrointestinal basidiobolomycosis in a patient suffering from duodenal ulcer with perforation: First case report from Italy.

New Microbiol 2019 Apr 17;41(2). Epub 2019 Apr 17.

Institute of Microbiology, Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, Polyclinic University Foundation Agostino Gemelli, IRCCS, Rome, Italy.

Gastrointestinal basidiobolomycosis (GIB), an unusual fungal infection caused by the fungus Basidiobolus ranarum, is rarely reported in the medical literature. GIB is difficult to diagnose because its clinical presentation is non-specific and has no identifiable risk factors. We report here the first case of GIB diagnosed in Italy in a patient suffering from a duodenal ulcer with perforation. Read More

Review of the association between periodontitis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in smokers.

Monaldi Arch Chest Dis 2019 Mar 20;89(1). Epub 2019 Mar 20.

Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, School of Dentistry.

Both periodontitis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are among the most common diseases associated with smoking. These conditions frequently present alongside comorbidities including diabetes, coronary heart disease, duodenal ulcer, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, osteoporosis and muscle atrophy. Chronic inflammation contributes to the pathology of both periodontitis and COPD, and in patients suffering from both conditions treatment of periodontitis may lead to relief from COPD symptoms as well.

Department of Gastroenterological Surgery, Osaka International Cancer Institute, Otemae 3-1-69, Chuo-ku, Osaka, 541-8567, Japan.

Background: Pancreatoduodenectomy is considered to be a very invasive treatment for early superficial duodenal tumors (SDTs), which have a lower risk of lymph node metastasis. Partial resection of the duodenum with endoscopic submucosal dissection for SDT resection is an attractive technique but it is associated with a high risk of complications. We describe our technique for SDT resection. Read More

Evidence for Local and Systemic Immune Activation in Functional Dyspepsia and the Irritable Bowel Syndrome: A Systematic Review.

Am J Gastroenterol 2019 Mar;114(3):429-436

School of Biomedical Sciences & Pharmacy, Faculty of Health & Medicine, University of Newcastle, Newcastle, NSW, Australia.

Background: Subtle histopathologic features such as eosinophilia and increased mast cells have been observed in functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs), including functional dyspepsia (FD) and the irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The mechanisms that drive recruitment of these cells to the gastrointestinal tract remain unexplained, largely due to the heterogeneity in phenotypes among patients diagnosed with such conditions. We aimed to systematically review the literature and collate the evidence for immune activation in FD and IBS, and where possible, detail the nature of activation. Read More

Duodenal Ulceration following Holmium Laser Lithotripsy.

Case Rep Gastroenterol 2019 Jan-Apr;13(1):12-16. Epub 2019 Jan 10.

Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville, Tennessee, USA.

The epidemiology of peptic ulcer disease (PUD) has changed considerably in the last several decades. Previously a chronic disease characterized by frequent recurrences with a high rate of surgical interventions, it is now largely a self-limited disease that is medically managed. The role of acid suppression was widely recognized as being important in the pathogenesis of PUD in the 19th century, while it was not until the 1980s and 1990s that the importance of infection was identified.

Emerging studies have shed light on the association between Helicobacter pylori (HP) infection and cardiometabolic risk. However, there is no evidence to support a causal link for the relationship in the general population. Our aim was to determine whether HP infection is associated with the risks of incident type II diabetes mellitus (DM) in a population-based cohort consisting of adults from the general population.

Transluminal washout and debridement of extraluminal contamination as an adjunct to endoscopic defect repair.

VideoGIE 2019 Feb 7;4(2):91-94. Epub 2018 Dec 7.

Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, Hershey, Pennsylvania, USA.

Background And Aims: GI tract perforations and anastomotic dehiscence are increasingly effectively being repaired endoscopically; however, well-known and long-held surgical principles must still be honored. One important principle is that significant extraluminal contamination must be washed out, debrided, and drained in conjunction with repair of the defect if the wound is to effectively heal and resolve. Here we describe the use of endoscopic washout and debridement of extraluminal contamination at the time of luminal defect closure in a 7-patient series at our institution, with video demonstration of 2 patients in the series.
