Endoscopic suspect of subacute occlusive mesenteric ischaemia.

Rev Esp Enferm Dig 2022 May 12. Epub 2022 May 12.

Aparato Digestivo, Hospital Royo Villanova, España.

A 74-year-old patient presented to our emergency department with melena for 24 hours, associated with postprandial abdominal pain, predominantly in the epigastrium, for one month. Urgent gastroscopy showed a pale mucosa with loss of vascular pattern in the gastric antrum, as well as several superficial ulcers, Forrest III, at that level and in the duodenal bulb highly suggestive of ischaemia. An abdominal computed tomography angiography (CTA) revealed a filiform celiac trunk, with calcified atherosclerotic plaques in the ostium, superior mesenteric artery and both renal arteries, with absence of enhancement in a large part of the intestinal wall, suggestive of ischaemia.

Surgery, Hamad Medical Corporation, Doha, QAT.

Introduction: In the emergency room, acute pain in the abdomen is one of the most common symptoms that patients present with, and it is a result of a myriad of causes, leading to an exhaustive differential diagnosis. A perforated peptic ulcer is a rare cause of acute right iliac fossa or lower quadrant abdominal pain. It causes leakage of gastrointestinal contents in the area, resulting in localized inflammation and pain that is clinically similar to acute appendicitis. Read More

ACR Appropriateness Criteria® Epigastric Pain.

J Am Coll Radiol 2021 11;18(11S):S330-S339

Specialty Chair; and Director, CT and MRI, and Section Chief, Abdominal Imaging, Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center, Richmond, Virginia.

Epigastric pain can have multiple etiologies including myocardial infarction, pancreatitis, acute aortic syndromes, gastroesophageal reflux disease, esophagitis, peptic ulcer disease, gastritis, duodenal ulcer disease, gastric cancer, and hiatal hernia. This document focuses on the scenarios in which epigastric pain is accompanied by symptoms such as heartburn, regurgitation, dysphagia, nausea, vomiting, and hematemesis, which raise suspicion for gastroesophageal reflux disease, esophagitis, peptic ulcer disease, gastritis, duodenal ulcer disease, gastric cancer, or hiatal hernia. Although endoscopy may be the test of choice for diagnosing these entities, patients may present with nonspecific or overlapping symptoms, necessitating the use of imaging prior to or instead of endoscopy.

BMJ Case Rep 2021 Sep 13;14(9). Epub 2021 Sep 13.

Vascular Surgery, Sun Yat-sen University First Affiliated Hospital, Guangzhou, Guangdong, China.

An 84-year-old woman presented acutely with dizziness, fatigue and a total of 800 mL of fresh per rectum (PR) bleeding. The significant history of abdominal aortic aneurysm repair 5 years ago included multiple episodes of endovascular leak around the stent associated with abscess of left psoas major, left abdominal wall abscess with sinus formation, appendicitis with abscess formation, and acute pancreatic and chronic cholecystitis with multiple gallstones in the 7 months prior to this presentation. During the preceding 7 months, the patient was stabilised with an intravenous proton pump inhibitor, blood transfusions and Intensive Care Unit (ICU) management for the assumed diagnosis of stress ulcers over multiple hospital admissions.

Phase I Trial of Stereotactic MRI-Guided Online Adaptive Radiation Therapy (SMART) for the Treatment of Oligometastatic Ovarian Cancer.

Int J Radiat Oncol Biol Phys 2022 02 30;112(2):379-389. Epub 2021 Aug 30.

Department of Radiation Oncology, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey.

Purpose: Stereotactic body radiation therapy is increasingly used to treat a variety of oligometastatic histologies, but few data exist for ovarian cancer. Ablative stereotactic body radiation therapy dosing is challenging in sites like the abdomen, pelvis, and central thorax due to proximity and motion of organs at risk. A novel radiation delivery method, stereotactic magnetic-resonance-guided online-adaptive radiation therapy (SMART), may improve the therapeutic index of stereotactic body radiation therapy through enhanced soft-tissue visualization, real-time nonionizing imaging, and ability to adapt to the anatomy-of-the-day, with the goal of producing systemic-therapy-free intervals.

Sickle cell anemia with perforated duodenal ulcer as a complication: when to suspect this rare entity?

Radiol Case Rep 2021 Oct 17;16(10):3139-3142. Epub 2021 Aug 17.

Adjunct Professor of the Departament of Radiology - EPM - UNIFESP, Rua Napoleão de Barros, SP, Brazil.

Perforated duodenal peptic ulcers are often not considered when making a differential diagnosis of abdominal pain, especially in the context of sickle cell disease, and cases have not been frequently described in the literature. This study reports the case of a 14 year-old girl with sickle cell anemia complicated with duodenal ulcer perforation, focusing mainly on the imaging aspects. Abdominal CT should be considered as a method for this diagnosis and it requires the knowledge of this entity and its characteristic imaging findings. Read More

Upper Gastrointestinal Tract Involvement in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases: Histologic Clues and Pitfalls.

Adv Anat Pathol 2022 Jan;29(1):2-14

Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology, Mayo Clinic Arizona, Scottsdale, AZ.

The upper gastrointestinal (UGI) manifestations of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) are frequently obscured by classic ileal and colonic symptoms and are reported to involve only 0.5% to 4% of adult patients. However, because of the improvement of endoscopic techniques and the growing use of esophagogastroduodenososcopy with biopsy, both asymptomatic and clinically significant esophageal, gastric, and duodenal manifestations are increasingly recognized.

Duodenal imaging on the spotlight: from A to Z.

Insights Imaging 2021 Jul 7;12(1):94. Epub 2021 Jul 7.

Department of Radiology, Centro Hospitalar e Universitário de Coimbra, Praceta Prof. Mota Pinto, 3004-561, Coimbra, Portugal.

Abdominal computed tomography (CT) is frequently performed to evaluate gastrointestinal pathologic conditions. The majority of the gastrointestinal radiology literature has concentrated on the colon, stomach, and distal small bowel. The duodenum is often overlooked on imaging, namely on CT, but its anatomy (intra and retroperitoneal) and location in such close proximity to other viscera results in involvement by a multitude of primary and secondary processes, some of them exclusive to this bowel segment.

Department of Imaging Diagnostics and Interventional Radiology, Pomeranian Medical University in Szczecin, Poland.

Introduction: Endoscopic measures have continued to be the primary procedures in the management of ulcer bleeding. Nevertheless, in cases of failed endoscopic hemostasis and re-bleedings, endovascular techniques have gradually gained increased acceptance as an alternative to surgery, allowing to avoid surgical intervention in some cases. <br/> Case report: A case of a 42-year-old patient presenting to the authors' institution with massive bleeding from the duodenal ulcer, sprang from a pathologically enlarged gastroduodenal artery is reported.
