Persistent or recurrent Barrett's neoplasia after an endoscopic therapy session is associated with DNA content abnormality and can be detected by DNA flow cytometric analysis of paraffin-embedded tissue.

Mod Pathol 2021 Jun 9. Epub 2021 Jun 9.

University of California at San Francisco, Department of Pathology, San Francisco, CA, USA.

Endoscopic therapy is currently the standard of care for the treatment of high-grade dysplasia (HGD) or intramucosal adenocarcinoma (IMC) in patients with Barrett's esophagus (BE). Visible lesions are treated with endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR), which is often coupled with radiofrequency ablation (RFA). However, endoscopic therapy may require multiple sessions (one session every 2-3 months) and does not always assure complete eradication of neoplasia. Read More

Radiol Case Rep 2021 Jul 26;16(7):1907-1911. Epub 2021 May 26.

Radiology Department of Hospital Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, UKM. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Gastric volvulus is an uncommon disorder with an unknown incidence, unless it stays in the back of the diagnostician's mind, diagnosis of gastric volvulus, which can have significant morbidity and mortality associated with it, can be easily missed and can present either in the acute or chronic setting with variable symptoms. When it occurs in the acute scenario, patients present with severe epigastric pain and retching without vomiting. Together with inability to pass nasogastric tube, they constitute Borchardt's triad.

Impact of the Hepatic Branch of the Vagus Nerve Transection in Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy for Patients with Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.

Obes Surg 2021 Jun 3. Epub 2021 Jun 3.

Department of General Surgical Science, Gunma University Graduate School of Medicine, 3-39-22 Showa-machi, Maebashi, Gunma, 371-8511, Japan.

Background: An increase in gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) has been reported, and concomitant hiatal hernia repair (HHR) during LSG is expected to reduce the incidence of post-LSG GERD. In HHR, the hepatic branch of the vagus nerve is anatomically transected. Recent experimental animal models suggest that vagotomy may affect glycemic control and weight loss through a neuroendocrine response. Read More

Acute bolus obstruction following surgical treatment of paraesophageal herniation of the greater omentum.

J Surg Case Rep 2021 May 27;2021(5):rjab208. Epub 2021 May 27.

Department of Surgery, Hospital of the Canton of St. Gallen, St. Gallen, Switzerland.

Hiatal herniations are most commonly diagnosed during work-up for gastroesophageal reflux disease. Here, we present a patient with retrosternal pain for whom the computed tomography scan showed a lipomatous formation in the lower posterior mediastinum, and further examination indicated the origin to be paraesophageal herniation (PEH) of the greater omentum. This was confirmed by laparoscopy, the herniated part of the greater omentum was repositioned and the hiatal hernia was repaired. Read More

Tailoring Therapy for Achalasia.

Joel E Richter

Gastroenterol Hepatol (N Y) 2020 May;16(5):249-257

Dr Richter is a professor of medicine, Hugh F. Culverhouse Chair for Esophageal Disorders, director of the Division of Digestive Diseases and Nutrition, and director of the Joy McCann Culverhouse Center for Esophageal and Swallowing Disorders at the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine in Tampa, Florida.

Achalasia is a rare esophageal motility disorder with impaired lower esophageal sphincter (LES) opening and aperistalsis. The disease cannot be cured and aperistalsis cannot be corrected, but good long-term symptom relief results from some degree of destruction to the obstruction of the LES. The presence of multiple treatment options with excellent scientific efficacy now offers the opportunity to tailor therapy for patients with achalasia. Read More

Division of General and Foregut Surgery, Department of Biomedical Sciences for Health, IRCCS Policlinico San Donato, University of Milan, San Donato Milanese (Milano), Italy.

Crural repair is an essential technical component in laparoscopic hiatal hernia surgery, but there is no consensus regarding the optimal method to prevent postoperative hernia recurrence. Mesh augmentation, especially with permanent materials, is associated with dysphagia and complications. The rotational falciform ligament flap (FLF) has been reported to be effective in reinforcing standard suture closure of the hiatus. Read More
