Nonsurgical endoscopic treatment of gastric volvulus in extremely high-risk surgical patients.

Rev Esp Enferm Dig 2019 Nov;111(11):894-895

Servicio de Digestivo, Complejo Asistencial Universitario de Salamanca.

Gastric volvulus is a rare entity that occurs as a consequence of a rotation of the stomach of more than 180°, with gastric outlet obstruction and vascular compromise. It occurs secondary to diaphragmatic defects in most cases and is mainly reported in elderly patients who are fragile and present severe associated comorbidities. Here we present a nonsurgical treatment with the use of a single percutaneous endoscopic tube to perform gastropexy in patients with a high risk for surgery or inoperable patients. Read More

Evaluation of a novel technique involving ultrasound-guided, temporary, percutaneous gastropexy and gastrostomy catheter placement for providing sustained gastric decompression in dogs with gastric dilatation-volvulus.

J Am Vet Med Assoc 2019 11;255(9):1027-1034

Objective: To evaluate the feasibility of ultrasound-guided, temporary, percutaneous T-fastener gastropexy (TG) and gastrostomy catheter (GC) placement for providing sustained gastric decompression in dogs with acute gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV) and to compare findings with those of trocarization.

Animals: 16 dogs with GDV.

Procedures: Dogs were randomly assigned to undergo gastric decompression by means of percutaneous trocarization (trocar group; n = 8) or temporary TG and GC placement (TTG+GC group; 8) with ultrasound guidance. Read More

Using three-dimensional ultrasound in predicting complex gastroschisis: A longitudinal, prospective, multicenter cohort study.

Prenat Diagn 2019 12 25;39(13):1204-1212. Epub 2019 Oct 25.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Division of Obstetrics and Prenatal Medicine, Erasmus MC-Sophia Children's Hospital, Erasmus University Rotterdam, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Objective: To determine whether complex gastroschisis (ie, intestinal atresia, perforation, necrosis, or volvulus) can prenatally be distinguished from simple gastroschisis by fetal stomach volume and stomach-bladder distance, using three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound.

Methods: This multicenter prospective cohort study was conducted in the Netherlands between 2010 and 2015. Of seven university medical centers, we included the four centers that performed longitudinal 3D ultrasound measurements at a regular basis. Read More

Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, Cleveland Clinic, 9500 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44195, USA. Electronic address:

Giant paraesophageal hernias can present as an asymptomatic incidentally detected paraesophageal hernia to an emergent gastric volvulus with concern for ischemia. In the acute setting, the preoperative evaluation aims to determine the extent of complications from gastric volvulus. In the elective setting, preoperative testing defines the gastroesophageal anatomy and function to select the optimal operation. Read More

An investigation into the development of right displaced abomasum by rolling 268 dairy cows with left displaced abomasum.

J Dairy Sci 2019 Dec 20;102(12):11268-11279. Epub 2019 Sep 20.

Department of Animal Reproduction (INIA), UCM, 28040 Spain. Electronic address:

Right displaced abomasum (RDA) and abomasal volvulus (AV) are common diseases in cattle. However, presently there is no consensus regarding the pathogenesis and nomenclature of the different positions that the abomasum can adopt in the right side of the cow. Therefore, the objective of this study was to describe the etiopathogenesis of the right displaced abomasum according to the description of the features observed in 268 cows with left displaced abomasum (LDA), which were rolled to induce the movement of the abomasum from the left side to the right (in fact, inducing an RDA in 44% of cases), to facilitate the surgical approach, and immediately surgically treated (abomasal omentopexy from the right side).

Retrocolic versus antecolic gastrointestinal reconstruction in robotic pancreaticoduodenectomy.

J Hepatobiliary Pancreat Sci 2019 Nov 8;26(11):517-523. Epub 2019 Oct 8.

Second Department of Hepatopancreatobiliary Surgery, Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) General Hospital, 28 Fuxing Road, Haidian District, Beijing, 100853, China.

Background: With the advancement of robotic pancreaticoduodenectomy (RPD), several reconstruction methods have been advocated to make RPD more effective and safer. In this study, we investigated the safety and effectiveness of RPD using a left retrocolic (L-port) technique and compared it with those of RPD using an antecolic technique.

Methods: Between October 2015 and August 2016, we retrospectively reviewed consecutive cases of RPD before and after introducing the L-port technique for gastrointestinal reconstruction. Read More
