Imaging Manifestations of Peptic Ulcer Disease on Computed Tomography.

Semin Ultrasound CT MR 2018 Apr 15;39(2):183-192. Epub 2017 Dec 15.

Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging, University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, CA; Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, San Francisco, CA.

Although the overall prevalence of peptic ulcer disease (PUD) has decreased in modern times, its actual incidence may be underestimated owing to the nonspecific clinical presentations patients' manifest. The potential lethal complications that can result from PUD include life-threatening abdominal hemorrhage and bowel perforation that result in significant morbidity and mortality. Computed tomography (CT) imaging historically lacks specificity in detecting PUD-related pathology in the stomach and proximal small bowel segments. Read More

Department of Internal Medicine 2, Shimane University School of Medicine, Izumo, Japan.

Gastritis cystica polyposa is a polypoid lesion that arises from the gastric mucosa at the gastrojejunal anastomotic site and is characterized by cystic dilation of the gastric glands. A 78-year-old man who underwent distal gastrectomy for a gastric ulcer with Billroth II reconstruction approximately 40 years previously, exhibited a gastritis cystica polyposa at the anastomotic site. Ulceration was observed on an annual endoscopic examination. Read More

Lanthanum-Induced Mucosal Alterations in the Stomach (Lanthanum Gastropathy): a Comparative Study Using an Animal Model.

Biol Trace Elem Res 2018 Sep 4;185(1):36-47. Epub 2018 Jan 4.

Department of Pathology and Oncology, School of Medicine, University of Occupational and Environmental Health, 1-1 Iseigaoka, Yahatanishi-ku, Kitakyushu, 807-8555, Japan.

Lanthanum (La) carbonate (LC) is one of the most potent phosphate binders that prevents the elevation of serum phosphate levels in patients with end-stage renal diseases undergoing dialysis. LC binds strongly to dietary phosphate and forms insoluble complexes that pass through the gastrointestinal tract. La deposition in patients treated with LC is a recently documented finding particularly observed in gastric mucosa. Read More

Gastroscopic Study of Meloxicam, Tramadol, and Their Combined Administration on the Development of Gastric Injuries in Dogs.

Top Companion Anim Med 2017 Sep 20;32(3):109-113. Epub 2017 Sep 20.

Department of Food Hygiene and Public Health, School of Veterinary Medicine, Shiraz University, Shiraz, Iran.

Opioid and non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are commonly used to manage post-operative pain that may be chronically extended. Although NSAIDs have been approved for their analgesic effects in canine, they are mostly known to be associated with side effects, particularly gastric ulcers. In the present study, we evaluated short-term co-administration of meloxicam and tramadol to see if this could induce more gastric ulcers than that observed when using these drugs individually.

Treatment of chronic mesenteric ischemia has evolved over the last two decades. Endovascular therapy is now the treatment of choice for patients with lesions amenable to such an approach. Open revascularization remains the standard of care but is frequently being reserved for lesions containing intraluminal thrombus or severe calcification. Read More

Understanding immune phenotypes in human gastric disease tissues by multiplexed immunohistochemistry.

J Transl Med 2017 10 12;15(1):206. Epub 2017 Oct 12.

Faculty of Medical Laboratory Science, Ruijin Hospital, School of Medicine, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, 227 Chongqing Road South, Shanghai, 200025, China.

Background: Understanding immune phenotypes and human gastric disease in situ requires an approach that leverages multiplexed immunohistochemistry (mIHC) with multispectral imaging to facilitate precise image analyses.

Methods: We developed a novel 4-color mIHC assay based on tyramide signal amplification that allowed us to reliably interrogate immunologic checkpoints, including programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1), cytotoxic T cells (CD8T) and regulatory T cells (Foxp3), in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues of various human gastric diseases. By observing cell phenotypes within the disease tissue microenvironment, we were able to determine specific co-localized staining combinations and various measures of cell density. Read More

Advances in the endoscopic management of gastric outflow disorders.

Curr Opin Gastroenterol 2017 Nov;33(6):455-460

Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Endoscopy, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

Purpose Of Review: Disorders of gastric outflow and outlet obstruction include a variety of benign and malignant disorders such as peptic strictures, foreign bodies, gastroparesis, and cancers of the stomach, duodenum, and pancreas. Historically, a majority of patients presenting with gastric outlet obstruction (GOO) were to the result of peptic ulcers and surgical management of peptic ulcer complications was a mainstay of general surgical training. Invasive surgery is being performed less frequently today due to realization of the role of Helicobacter pylori in peptic ulcer disease and the introduction of novel endoscopic techniques for management of GOO.
