Surg Endosc 2019 Feb 13. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Division of Next Generation Endoscopic Intervention (Project ENGINE), Global Center for Medical Engineering and Informatics, Osaka University, Osaka, Japan.

Background And Aims: Migration of duodenal covered self-expandable metallic stents (C-SEMS) is the main cause of stent dysfunction in patients with malignant gastric outlet obstruction. However, the ideal method to prevent migration has not been clarified. We aimed to evaluate the feasibility and safety of duodenal C-SEMS fixation in this experimental study. Read More

Laparoscopic Diamond Antroduodenostomy for Postcorrosive Pyloric Cicatrization: A Novel Approach.

J Laparoendosc Adv Surg Tech A 2019 Feb 13. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

2 Department of Pediatric Surgery, Cairo University, Cairo, Egypt.

Background: Traditionally, Billroth I procedure or bypass gastrojejunostomy were the recommended approaches for management of postcorrosive complete gastric outlet obstruction (GOO), whereas Heineke Mickulicz pyloroplasty was recommended for moderate mucosal injury with partial cicatrization. In this study, laparoscopic diamond antroduodenostomy was carried out as an alternative minimally invasive approach for cases with pyloric cicatricial obstruction.

Patients And Methods: Between January and December 2017, children who were referred to Pediatric Surgery Department, Cairo University Hospital, with GOO as a consequence of caustic liquid ingestions were included in this study. Read More

EUS-guided gastroenterostomy versus enteral stent placement for palliation of malignant gastric outlet obstruction.

Surg Endosc 2019 Feb 6. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

Developmental Endoscopy Lab, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA.

Background: EUS-guided gastroenterostomy (EUS-GE) is a novel procedure for palliation of malignant gastric outlet obstruction (GOO); however, data comparing EUS-GE to enteral stent placement are limited. We aimed to compare clinical outcomes between EUS-GE and enteral stent placement in the palliation of malignant GOO.

Methods: Retrospective analysis of a prospectively collected database on patients who underwent EUS-GE or enteral stent placement for palliation of malignant GOO from 2014 to 2017 was conducted. Read More

The association of prenatal and postnatal macrolide exposure with subsequent development of infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

Ital J Pediatr 2019 Feb 4;45(1):20. Epub 2019 Feb 4.

Department of Family and Community Medicine, College of Medicine, Taibah University, PO box 42317, Madinah, 41541, Saudi Arabia.

A Multidisciplinary Approach to Management of Bouveret Syndrome.

Clin Med Res 2018 Dec;16(3-4):73-75

Department of Urology, Gundersen Health System, La Crosse, Wisconsin USA

Bouveret Syndrome is a rare complication of gallstone disease that occurs when a gallstone enters the stomach or bowel through a biliary enteric fistula and becomes impacted, resulting in gastric outlet obstruction. It is frequently seen in elderly chronically ill patients with neglected biliary disease. We describe a multidisciplinary approach to management of Bouveret Syndrome that could be adopted by healthcare systems with resources commonly found in facilities with a general urologist and gastroenterologist or general surgeon.

Prevalence and descriptive epidemiology of infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis in the United States: A multistate, population-based retrospective study, 1999-2010.

Birth Defects Res 2019 Feb 13;111(3):159-169. Epub 2018 Dec 13.

Department of Epidemiology, College of Public Health, The University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa.

Background: Antecedents for infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis (IHPS) vary across studies; therefore, we conducted a multistate, population-based retrospective study of the prevalence and descriptive epidemiology of IHPS in the United States (US).

Methods: Data for IHPS cases (n = 29,554) delivered from 1999-2010 and enumerated from 11 US population-based birth defect surveillance programs, along with data for live births (n = 14,707,418) delivered within the same birth period and jurisdictions, were analyzed using Poisson regression to estimate IHPS prevalence per 10,000 live births. Additional data on deliveries from 1999-2005 from seven of these programs were analyzed using multivariable logistic regression to estimate adjusted prevalence ratios (aPR)s and 95% confidence intervals (CI)s for selected infant and parental characteristics.

 Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided gastroenterostomy is a novel, off-label, procedure that has been facilitated by availability of a novel lumen apposing metal stent (LAMS) (Axios, Boston Scientific, Marlbourough Massachusetts, United States). The literature suggests its efficacy to be comparable to surgical gastrojejunostomy. In theory, this procedure overcomes the issues associated with woven enteral stents, which are subject to continuous, straightening, axial forces. Read More

The objectives of this study were to describe an endoscopic technique for semi-quantitative measurement of the internal pyloric diameter and apply this method to determine its typical size in a population of healthy cats. Twenty-four healthy adult cats, privately owned or originating from catteries, were prospectively recruited. Endoscopies were performed by the same investigator and cats with moderate to marked macroscopic inflammation were excluded. Read More

Comparison of big funnel and individualized stents for management of stomach cancer with gastric outlet obstruction.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Nov;97(48):e13194

Department of Gastroenterology, Ningbo No. 2 Hospital, Ningbo.

Background: Previous studies reported a similar rate of complications, including stent migration and obstruction, between individualized stents and the standard uncovered stents in gastric outlet obstruction (GOO) caused by distal stomach cancer. The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of funnel stents for management of GOO caused by distal stomach cancer.

Methods: This study was designed as a multicenter, controlled, prospective, and randomized clinical trial involving 4 hospitals. Read More

Eur J Pediatr 2018 Nov 23. Epub 2018 Nov 23.

Evidence Based Medicine Research Group & Faculty of Applied Sciences, Ton Duc Thang University, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

Macrolides are bacteriostatic antibiotics with a broad spectrum of activity against Gram-positive bacteria. The aim of this study was to systematically review and meta-analyze the association between infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis (IHPS) and macrolides. Nine databases were searched systematically for studies with information on the association between macrolides and IHPS. Read More

Double Percutaneous Transesophageal Gastrotubing for Gastric Cancer: A Pilot Study.

J Surg Res 2018 Dec 25;232:470-474. Epub 2018 Jul 25.

Department of Surgery, The Jikei University School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan.

Background: The management of gastric cancer causing gastric outlet obstruction and dilatation must include decompression of the stomach and intravenous nutrition. Percutaneous transesophageal gastrotubing (PTEG) is an effective technique for either gastric decompression or enteral nutrition. Here, we investigated the efficacy and safety of double PTEG (dPTEG), that is, using PTEG for both purposes simultaneously, in patients with gastric cancer. Read More

Superiority of Gastrojejunostomy Over Endoscopic Stenting for Palliation of Malignant Gastric Outlet Obstruction.

Clin Gastroenterol Hepatol 2018 Oct 31. Epub 2018 Oct 31.

Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio.

Background & Aims: Gastric outlet obstruction (GOO) in patients with malignancies causes nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, malnutrition, and dehydration. Endoscopic placement of self-expandable metallic stent (SEMS) and gastrojejunostomy are the 2 main palliative options. We aimed to compare the outcomes of endoscopic SEMS placement with GJ in a propensity score matched study and identified factors associated with clinical success. Read More

General Surgery, St John of God Midland Public and Private Hospitals, 1 Clayton Street, Midland, Australia.

Intragastric balloons are used as a temporary restrictive method in obesity to induce weight loss. They are typically recommended when patients have mild obesity and have failed traditional first line treatments of diet, exercise and behaviour modification. We report a case of a 45-year-old female who presented with nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain two weeks following an uncomplicated insertion of an intragastric balloon. Read More
