Percutaneous transgastrostomic interventional radiology-operated endoscopy facilitates foreign body removal using rigid endobronchial forceps.

Diagn Interv Radiol 2018 Jan-Feb;24(1):42-45

Division of Vascular and Interventional Radiology, Department of Radiology, University of Michigan Health Systems, Ann Arbor, MI, USA.

Retained foreign bodies within the stomach and proximal small bowel may be problematic in patients with prior cerebrovascular injury or head, neck and esophageal malignancy, given the increased vulnerability of this patient population to complications from aspiration and increased difficulty of esophagogastroduodenoscopy in cases of tumoral obstruction. This article presents an alternative method for foreign body retrieval through an existing gastrostomy tract, which offers the benefits of fast procedure times, reduction in radiation dose and fluoroscopy time, and allows for safer retrieval of foreign bodies by using direct visualization. This technique may be performed entirely by interventional radiologists. Read More

Boerhaave's syndrome or spontaneous oesophageal perforation is associated with significant mortality de-pending on time of diagnosis and initiation of treatment. However, the diagnosis is often delayed, as the condition mimics more frequent causes of chest- and abdominal pain. This case report describes a patient with severe upper ab-dominal and back pain following ructus in an effort to loosen a piece of candy stuck in the oesophagus. Read More

Left atrial compression with acute heart failure caused by esophageal bolus.

J Clin Ultrasound 2018 May 27;46(4):259-261. Epub 2017 Jun 27.

Division of Cardiology, SS Trinità Hospital, ASL No, Borgomanero, Italy.

We report a case of left atrial extrinsic compression caused by an esophageal food bolus in a patient presenting with acute heart failure. Transthoracic echocardiography along with contrast-enhanced CT showed evidence of esophageal dilation producing left atrial compression. Esophageal endoscopy and fragmentation of the bolus, allowing the accumulated food to descend into the stomach, produced a rapid improvement of hemodynamic and clinical status. Read More

Safety and Efficacy of the Push Endoscopic Technique in the Management of Esophageal Food Bolus Impactions in Children.

J Pediatr Gastroenterol Nutr 2018 01;66(1):e1-e5

Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Department of Pediatrics, University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA.

Objectives: Adult-based guidelines support the use of the pull (extraction) endoscopic technique in managing esophageal food bolus impactions (FBIs) but allow the consideration of the push (advancement) technique with caution based on available published literature. The North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition guidelines mention the use of gentle endoscopic pushing for disimpaction but elaborate that this technique has not been studied in children. Our study aimed at assessing the safety and efficacy of the push technique in managing pediatric esophageal FBIs. Read More

A lateral paracarotid approach for ultrasound-guided stellate ganglion block with a linear probe.

J Anesth 2017 Jun 28;31(3):458-462. Epub 2017 Apr 28.

Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, Park's Hospital, Daegu, Republic of Korea.

Recent reports suggest that ultrasound-guided stellate ganglion block (SGB) is safer and more accurate than classic SGB by the using the surface anatomical landmark. However, previous reports concern the classic paratracheal approach using a small specialized curved probe, which may not be appropriate in some patients. The authors have attempted several approaches, including paratracheal, trans-thyroidal, lateral paracarotid, and lateral approaches, to find a safe and suitable method for real-time ultrasound-guided SGB using a standard high-frequency linear probe.
