Anti-TNF biologic therapy does not increase postoperative morbidity in pediatric Crohn's patients.

J Pediatr Surg 2019 Jan 18. Epub 2019 Jan 18.

Division of Pediatric Surgery, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, USA.

Introduction: Limited knowledge exists as to what impact preoperative biologic therapy has on postoperative complications in pediatric patients undergoing abdominal surgery for Crohn's disease (CD). Therefore, we sought to determine the 30-day postoperative infectious complication rate among pediatric CD patients who received biologic therapy within 12 weeks of an abdominal operation.

Methods: A retrospective chart review was performed on pediatric (<18 years of age) CD patients who underwent an abdominal operation between 1/1/2008 and 12/31/2017. Read More

Is the 8-mm robotic port safe? A case of trocar site hernia after robotic cholecystectomy using the da Vinci Xi system.

Wideochir Inne Tech Maloinwazyjne 2019 Jan 11;14(1):137-140. Epub 2018 Jun 11.

Department of Surgery, Hallym University College of Medicine, Hwaseong-si, South Korea.

With the increase in the frequency of robotic surgery, complications have also increased, including trocar site hernias, which rarely occur at the 8-mm port site after robotic cholecystectomy using the da Vinci Xi system. A 37-year-old woman was diagnosed with cholecystitis on abdominal sonography. She underwent robotic cholecystectomy using a bikini-line incision. Read More

Can Intestinal Pseudo-Obstruction Drive Recurrent Stroke-Like Episodes in Late-Onset MELAS Syndrome? A Case Report and Review of the Literature.

Front Neurol 2019 31;10:38. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

Neurology Unit, IRCCS Foundation Ca' Granda Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico, Milan, Italy.

Mitochondrial encephalomyopathy, lactic acidosis, and stroke-like episodes (MELAS) syndrome is a maternally inherited mitochondrial disorder that is most commonly caused by the m. 3243A>G mutation in the MT-TL1 mitochondrial DNA gene, resulting in impairment of mitochondrial energy metabolism. Although childhood is the typical age of onset, a small fraction (1-6%) of individuals manifest the disease after 40 years of age and usually have a less aggressive disease course. Read More

Fetal Primary Small Bowel Volvulus Associated with Acute Gastric Dilatation Detected by Ultrasonography.

Kobe J Med Sci 2019 Jan 11;64(4):E157-E159. Epub 2019 Jan 11.

Department of Pediatrics, Kobe University Graduate School of Medicine, Kobe, Japan.

Fetal intestinal volvulus is a rare condition, and fetal diagnosis of this disease is still challenging, especially in primary cases not accompanied by other comorbidities, such as intestinal malformations. Herein, we report a case of fetal primary small bowel volvulus associated with acute gastric dilatation detected by ultrasonography. We speculate that the mechanism of acute gastric dilatation in our case was peristatic malfunction of the whole intestine caused by a strangulated ileus resulting from fetal intestinal volvulus.

Department of Internal Medicine II, Division of Gastroenterology, Rainweg 68, 07318 Saalfeld/Saale, Germany.

Fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) is a novel strategy for the therapy of dysbiosis-associated disorders via modulation of the gut microbiota. Intestinal dysbiosis is associated not only with digestive disorders, but also with a variety of extra-digestive disorders. A worldwide increasing number of FMT can be expected in the future as well as an increase in adverse events. Read More

Vancomycin Enema in the Treatment of Clostridium difficile Infection.

Surg Infect (Larchmt) 2019 Feb 4. Epub 2019 Feb 4.

Department of Surgery, University of Michigan Health System, Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Background: Current guidelines for the treatment of Clostridium difficile infections (CDIs) recommend vancomycin enemas for patients with adynamic ileus. There is significant variability in guideline recommendations for vancomycin dose and enema volume and whether a retention enema should be used. The most recent (2017) guidelines from the Infectious Diseases Society of America/Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America recommend rectal instillation of 500 mg of vancomycin in 100 mL of physiologic saline every 6 hours as a retention enema.

Background And Objectives: The role for the robotic-assisted approach as a minimally invasive alternative to open colorectal surgery is in the evaluation phase. While the benefits of minimally invasive colorectal surgery when compared to the open approach have been clearly demonstrated, the adoption of laparoscopy has been limited. The purpose of this study was to evaluate clinical outcomes, hospital and payer characteristics of patients undergoing robotic-assisted, laparoscopic, and open elective sigmoidectomy for diverticular disease in the United States.

Surgical and Endoscopic Treatment of a Double Phytobezoar Causing Ileus and Jaundice: A Case Report.

Iran J Med Sci 2019 Jan;44(1):70-73

Department of General Surgery, General Hospital of Drama, Greece.

Bezoars are rare conditions of mechanical intestinal occlusion. Among the various types of bezoars, phytobezoars and trichobezoars are the most common types. Symptoms are usually indistinguishable from other more common entities; therefore, it may be difficult to reach a correct diagnosis. Read More

Case Rep Surg 2018 19;2018:8965930. Epub 2018 Dec 19.

New York Presbyterian-Queens, 56-45 Main Street, Flushing NY 11355, USA.

Primary enterolithiasis is a relatively uncommon but important cause of small bowel obstruction. We present a case of a 69-year-old male with a history of laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and asymptomatic duodenal diverticulum diagnosed with small bowel obstruction. CT imaging showed an obstruction distal to the jejunojejunostomy, and surgical intervention was warranted. Read More

Department of Clinical Therapeutics, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens School of Medicine, Alexandra Hospital, 11528 Athens, Greece.

Synovial sarcoma is a high-grade soft tissue sarcoma, divided histologically into 3 types: Monophasic, biphasic and poorly differentiated. An extremely rare case of obstructive ileus due to monophasic synovial sarcoma in a 54-year-old male patient is reported in the present study. The patient presented to the emergency department with signs and symptoms of obstructive ileus. Read More

Overuse of plain abdominal radiography in emergency departments: a retrospective cohort study.

BMC Health Serv Res 2019 Jan 14;19(1):36. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

Division of Emergency Medicine, Department of Community Medicine, Primary Care and Emergency Medicine, Geneva University Hospitals and School of Medicine, Geneva University, rue Gabrielle Perret-Gentil 2, 1205, Geneva, Switzerland.

Background: Plain abdominal radiography (PAR) is routinely performed in emergency departments (EDs). This study aimed to (1) identify the indications for PAR in EDs and compare them against international guidelines, (2) uncover predictors of non-compliance with guidelines, and (3) describe the use of additional radiological examinations in EDs.

Methods: Retrospective cohort study in the EDs of two hospitals in Geneva, Switzerland, including all adult patients who underwent PAR in the EDs. Read More

The intestinal fatty acid-binding protein as a marker for intestinal damage in gastroschisis.

PLoS One 2019 14;14(1):e0210797. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

Department of Pediatric Surgery, Charles University in Prague, 2nd Faculty of Medicine, University Hospital Motol in Prague, Prague, Czech Republic.

Background/purpose: We analyzed the capacity of urinary Intestinal fatty acid-binding protein (I-FABP) to quantify the degree of mucosal injury in neonates with gastroschisis (GS) and to predict the speed of their clinical recovery after surgery.

Methods: In this prospective study, we collected urine during the first 48h after surgery from neonates operated between 2012 and 2015 for GS. Neonates with surgery that did not include gut mucosa served as controls for simple GS and neonates with surgery for intestinal atresia served as control for complex GS patients. Read More
