Considerations for the management of enterocutaneous fistula.

Br J Nurs 2019 Mar;28(5):S24-S31

Stoma Care Clinical Nurse Specialist, St Mark's Hospital, London North West NHS Trust.

Enterocutaneous fistula is an abnormal connection between the gastrointestinal tract and skin. Management includes early recognition and treatment of sepsis, reducing fluid and electrolyte homeostasis, nutrition support, wound management and a carefully timed surgical procedure. A multidisciplinary approach is required for successful management of these patients with one of the most challenging and resource-demanding aspects being local control of the effluent, requiring the skill and support of the specialist stoma care nurse.

A technique to establish fistuloclysis for high-output jejunocutaneous fistula through percutaneous enterostomy: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Mar;98(10):e14653

Department of General Surgery, Jinling Clinical College of Nanjing Medical University, Nanjing, Jiangsu, China.

Rationale: Currently, fistucolysis helps to establish intestinal nutrition and succus entericus reinfusion in the case of controllable mature high-output enterocutaneous fistula. However, if the tube cannot reach the distal limb of a fistula, fistuloclysis is not achieved. We proposed a strategy to establish succus entericus reinfusion for intractable intestinal fistula through percutaneous enterostomy. Read More

Role of Bile Acids and GLP-1 in Mediating the Metabolic Improvements of Bariatric Surgery.

Gastroenterology 2019 03 13;156(4):1041-1051.e4. Epub 2018 Nov 13.

Department of Surgery, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tennessee. Electronic address:

Background & Aims: Bile diversion to the ileum (GB-IL) has strikingly similar metabolic and satiating effects to Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) in rodent obesity models. The metabolic benefits of these procedures are thought to be mediated by increased bile acids, although parallel changes in body weight and other confounding variables limit this interpretation.

Methods: Global G protein-coupled bile acid receptor-1 null (Tgr5) and intestinal-specific farnesoid X receptor null (Fxr) mice on high-fat diet as well as wild-type C57BL/6 and glucagon-like polypeptide 1 receptor deficient (Glp-1r) mice on chow diet were characterized following GB-IL. Read More

High ligation of the anal fistula tract by lateral approach: A prospective cohort study on a modification of the ligation of the intersphincteric fistula tract (LIFT) technique.

Int J Surg 2018 Dec 19;60:9-14. Epub 2018 Oct 19.

Department of Coloproctology, Yang Hospital, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Background: Ligation of the intersphincteric fistula tract (LIFT) is a sphincter-preserving operation for anal fistulas. Although it has advantages in preserving continence after surgery, it is difficult to perform owing to the narrow field of view. We performed a modified surgical procedure based on the LIFT to overcome these drawbacks. Read More

The contribution of preoperative MRI to the surgical management of anal fistulas.

Diagn Interv Radiol 2018 Nov;24(6):321-327

Department of Radiology, Hacettepe University School of Medicine, Ankara, Turkey.

Purpose: Anal fistula is an abnormal tract or cavity between the anal canal and perianal skin. Surgical treatment of anal fistulas requires the identification of the course of the primary and secondary tracts and their relation with the sphincter musculature in order to appropriately manage them and drain any abscess. Physical examination alone is not as accurate as imaging modalities in detecting these features of the fistula, and recurrences are usually due to missed or inadequately managed infective components.
