Endoscopic Treatment of Eosinophilic Esophagitis.

Authors:
Joel E Richter

Gastrointest Endosc Clin N Am 2018 Jan;28(1):97-110

Division of Digestive Diseases & Nutrition, Joy McCann Culverhouse Center for Swallowing Disorders, University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine, 12901 Bruce B. Downs Boulevard, MDC 72, Tampa, FL 33612, USA. Electronic address:

In eosinophilic esophagitis, the main cause of solid-food dysphagia is tissue remodeling resulting in strictures and narrowed esophagus. Endoscopy and biopsies help to identify the degree of inflammation but often miss the fibrosis. Although initially considered dangerous, esophageal dilation has evolved into an extremely effective and safe treatment in fibrostenotic disease. Read More

Cholesterol crystal embolization following plaque rupture: a systemic disease with unusual features.

J Biomed Res 2017 Jan;31(2):82-94

Department of Medicine, Division of Cardiology, College of Human Medicine, Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI, USA.

Cholesterol crystal embolic (CCE) syndrome is often a clinically challenging condition that has a poor prognostic implication. It is a result of plaque rupture with release of cholesterol crystals into the circulation that embolize into various tissue organs. Plaque rupture seems to be triggered by an expanding necrotic core during cholesterol crystallization forming sharp tipped crystals that perforate and tear the fibrous cap. Read More

Clinical utility of a functional lumen imaging probe in management of dysphagia following head and neck cancer therapies.

Endoscopy 2017 Sep 31;49(9):848-854. Epub 2017 May 31.

Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, St George Hospital, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Chemoradiotherapy for head and neck cancer (HNC) with/without laryngectomy commonly causes dysphagia. Pharyngoesophageal junction (PEJ) stricturing is an important contributor. We aimed to validate a functional lumen imaging probe (the EndoFLIP system) as a tool for quantitating pretreatment PEJ distensibility and treatment-related changes in HNC survivors with dysphagia and to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of EndoFLIP-derived distensibility in detecting PEJ strictures.

A rare case of pharyngeal perforation and expectoration of an entire anterior cervical fixation construct.

J Neurosurg Spine 2017 May 3;26(5):560-566. Epub 2017 Feb 3.

Institute of Clinical Orthopedic and Neurosciences, Desert Regional Medical Center, Palm Springs, California.

Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) is a very common surgery performed globally. Although a few cases of expectorating screws or extrusion of screws into the gastrointestinal tract through esophageal perforations have previously been reported, there has not been a case reporting pharyngeal perforation and entire cervical construct extrusion in the literature to date. In this report the authors present the first case involving the extrusion of an entire cervical construct via a tear in the posterior pharyngeal wall. Read More

Type A Aortic Dissection After Thoracic Endovascular Aortic Repair.

Ann Thorac Surg 2016 Nov 15;102(5):1536-1542. Epub 2016 Jun 15.

Department of Radiology, Mie University Hospital, Mie, Japan.

Background: Type A aortic dissection (TAAD) is a rare complication associated with thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR). Although TAAD can result in catastrophic outcomes, the pathology of the condition has not been thoroughly clarified yet.

Methods: We retrospectively reviewed details from the medical records of 546 patients with diseases of the thoracic aorta (thoracic aortic aneurysm, n = 362; aortic dissection, n = 178; and fistula between the descending thoracic aorta and esophagus, n = 6) who underwent TEVAR in five hospitals from May 1997 through February 2015 to identify patients in whom TAAD developed during or after TEVAR.

Department of Radiology, The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, 7703 Floyd Curl Drive, San Antonio, TX 78229-3900, USA.

Intramural hematoma of the esophagus (IHE) is a rare but well-documented condition that is part of the spectrum of esophageal injuries which includes the more common Mallory-Weiss tear and Boerhaave's syndrome. Acute retrosternal or epigastric pain is a common clinical feature, which can be accompanied by dysphagia, odynophagia, or hematemesis. An early differentiation from Mallory-Weiss tear, Boerhaave syndrome, ruptured aortic aneurysm, aortic dissection, acute myocardial infarction, or pulmonary pathology can be difficult. Read More

Retropharyngeal cerebrospinal fluid collection as a cause of postoperative dysphagia after anterior cervical discectomy.

Surg Neurol 2007 May;67(5):499-503; discussion 503

Department of Neurosurgery, San Sebastiano Hospital, 81100 Caserta, Italy.

Background: Transient dysphagia after anterior cervical discectomy is not uncommon. It is usually related to esophageal edema secondary to retraction, mechanical adhesions of the esophagus to the anterior spine, and stretch injuries to nerves involved in the swallowing mechanism. Structurally induced dysphagia, secondary to laceration of the neck viscera or to the presence of retropharyngeal masses, is by far less frequent, and it does not usually improve over time.

Surgical management of esophageal perforation: role of esophageal conservation in delayed perforation.

Am Surg 2002 Jan;68(1):36-40

Department of Surgery, Medical College of Georgia, Augusta 30912, USA.

Definitive repair of esophageal perforation is considered the preferred treatment for patients presenting early (<24 hours). However, the optimal management of delayed presentation (>24 hours) has not been well defined. This study examined the management of esophageal perforation and compared the outcomes of early versus delayed presentation. Read More

[Severe mediastinal emphysema after temporal gunshot with a gas revolver].

Anasthesiol Intensivmed Notfallmed Schmerzther 2002 Apr;37(4):222-4

Klinik für Anästhesiologie.

Injuries after a close contact gunshot with clear or tear gas cartridges can lead to severe and life threatening complications. The high pressure of the gas may damage soft tissue, bones and organs. This mechanism is able to cause mediastinal emphysema, rupture of upper and lower pharyngeal, esophageal and tracheal structures far away from the initial trauma with diagnostic findings which are may be difficult to interpret.

Pericardial flap aortopexy: an easy and safe technique in the treatment of tracheomalacia.

J Cardiovasc Surg (Torino) 2002 Apr;43(2):295-7

Department of Pediatric Surgery, Cumhuriyet University, Faculty of Medicine, Sivas, Turkey.

A 5-month-old boy who had been operated for esophageal atresia and tracheoesophageal fistula was presented with recurrent life-threatening apneic spells, expiratory stridor and difficulty in feeding. Diagnosis of tracheomalacia was confirmed by bronchoscopy and pericardial flap aortopexy was performed. Pericardial flap aortopexy is a relatively simple procedure with minimal risk to the aorta.

The effects of laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding on the proximal pouch and the esophagus.

Obes Surg 2001 Feb;11(1):76-86

Department of Surgery, University of Zurich Hospital, Switzerland.

Background: Pouch development is a potentially serious problem following gastric banding, and reoperation is often demanded to maintain long-term function of the lap band. Laparoscopic gastric banding was performed with two different calibrations of the pouch. Within a period of 12 months, postoperative pouch behavior with regard to volume and shape was evaluated retrospectively, as were changes in the distal esophagus. Read More

Endoscopic and radiological features of intramural esophageal dissection.

Endoscopy 2001 Apr;33(4):379-81

Dept. of Internal Medicine, Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, Kaohsiung Medical Center, Taiwan.

A 41-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital complaining of chest pain, dysphagia, and odynophagia after an upper respiratory tract infection and nasogastric tube insertion. An upper endoscopy showed a large submucosal bulge along the posterior wall from the upper esophagus with mucosal tears and bridge formation, extending down to the lower esophagus. A barium esophagogram revealed a "double-barreled" esophagus, and chest computed tomography (CT) scan showed eccentric thickening of the esophageal wall. Read More

Periventricular brain heterotopias in a child with adrenocortical insufficiency, achalasia, alacrima, and neurologic abnormalities (Allgrove syndrome).

J Child Neurol 1999 May;14(5):331-4

Pediatric Emergency Medicine and Day Care Department, Schneider Children's Medical Center of Israel, Petah.

We describe a previously unreported finding of periventricular heterotopias in a brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) study, in a girl with adrenocortical insufficiency, alacrima, achalasia, and neurologic deterioration (Allgrove syndrome). This finding could indicate that the underlying mechanism in this syndrome can be traced to the first half of fetal life and also might cause abnormal neuronal migration. This disorder recently has been linked to chromosome 12q13. Read More

Radiographic and CT findings of blunt chest trauma: aortic injuries and looking beyond them.

Radiographics 1998 Sep-Oct;18(5):1085-106; discussion 1107-8; quiz 1

Department of Radiology, University Hospital and Clinics, University of Wisconsin Medical School, Madison 53792-3252, USA.

Increasingly, helical CT is being used to screen trauma patients for aortic injury. Most aortic injuries visible at CT occur at or near the level of the ligamentum arteriosus; these injuries manifest as mediastinal hematoma, aortic contour deformity, intimal flaps, intraluminal debris, pseudoaneurysm, and pseudocoarctation. In the process of searching for aortic injury, however, the radiologist should not overlook other serious and more common thoracic injuries. Read More
