The effect of age and comorbidities on early postoperative complications after radical cystectomy: A contemporary population-based analysis.

J Geriatr Oncol 2019 Apr 19. Epub 2019 Apr 19.

Cancer Prognostics and Health Outcomes Unit, University of Montreal Health Center, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Background: Analyzing the relationship between perioperative outcomes and age in urothelial carcinoma of the bladder (UCB) patients treated with radical cystectomy (RC) in a continuous fashion may provide detailed information on the increased risk of complications in older patients, even after accounting for different comorbidity profiles. Given the limited data available in the literature, we tested these relationships within a large scale, population-based database.

Materials And Methods: Within the NIS database (2003-2015), we identified patients who underwent RC for UCB. Read More

Surgical treatment of gastric outlet obstruction from a large trichobezoar: A case report.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2019 Apr 6;57:183-185. Epub 2019 Apr 6.

Department of Minimally Invasive Surgery, Poissy Saint Germain Medical Center, Poissy, France.

Introduction: Bezoars are concretions of foreign indigestible material accumulating in the gastrointestinal tract leading to intraluminal mass formation that impairs the gastrointestinal motility and can lead to gastric obstruction of the small or the large bowel. There are different types of bezoars, named according to the material they are made of. These include phytobezoar, lactobezoar, pharmacobezoar, trichobezoar, and polybezoar. Read More

Colonic stenting for a malignant large bowel obstruction with pneumatosis coli to reduce surgical risk.

Proc (Bayl Univ Med Cent) 2018 Oct 27;31(4):462-464. Epub 2018 Sep 27.

Texas Colon and Rectal Specialists, LLPFlower MoundTexas.

Patients with a malignant large bowel obstruction are often late in seeking medical attention and are usually in poor health by the time a complete blockage is apparent. Emergency surgery in this setting, particularly in a patient with significant comorbidities, often requires the creation of an ostomy and can result in postoperative complications that delay the administration of adjuvant chemotherapy. This recent case at our center illustrates how the use of a colon stent, as a bridge to surgery, can help patients avoid the need for a stoma and reduce surgical complications. Read More

Gallstone ileus of the sigmoid colon. A case repor.

Ann Ital Chir 2019 Mar 28;8. Epub 2019 Mar 28.

Gallstone ileus is a complication of cholelithiasis which is due to gallstone migration through a fistula between the gallbladder and the gastrointestinal tract followed by intraluminal impaction. This uncommon form of mechanical bowel obstruction occurs in <1% of patients with cholelithiasis. Gallstone ileus due to cholecystocolonic fistula is rare, and therefore appropriate surgical treatment is still a matter of debate. Read More

Transverse colon volvulus in a patient with sickle cell disease.

BMJ Case Rep 2019 Mar 8;12(3). Epub 2019 Mar 8.

Department of Surgery, Salmaniya Medical Complex, Manama, Bahrain.

Although colonic volvulus is a relatively rare cause of large bowel obstruction, accounting for up to 5% of all cases of intestinal obstruction, transverse colon volvulus is extremely uncommon compared with volvulus of the sigmoid colon or caecum and is responsible for only 3% of all reported cases. We report an unusual case of spontaneous volvulus of the transverse colon in a young man with sickle cell disease who underwent resection with primary anastamosis. Having a high index of suspicion and early operative intervention allowed for this patient to have an uneventful postoperative course. Read More

Sclerosing mesenteritis is a rare non-neoplastic disorder characterized by fat necrosis, chronic inflammation, and fibrosis typically of the small bowel mesentery. Our understanding of this disorder is limited by its rarity as well as inconsistent terminology used across the literature. While prior abdominal surgery or trauma, autoimmunity, infection, ischemia, and malignancy have been suggested to be involved in the pathogenesis of the disorder, it remains poorly understood.

Malignant large bowel obstruction - what is the priority of treatment?

Authors:
J Hoch

Rozhl Chir Winter 2019;98(1):4-9

Obstruction by a tumor accounts for more than half of all emergency large bowel operations. The results of the treatment depend on the type and extent of the operation, the construction or elimination of anastomosis, the number of operation stages, the radicality achieved, or the modalities of treatment. Mortality and morbidity arise from local and systemic disorders due to obstruction and from postoperative complications, in the case of one-stage resections mainly from anastomotic failures.

Colonic stenting as a bridge to surgery in malignant large bowel obstruction: oncological outcomes.

Int J Colorectal Dis 2019 Apr 16;34(4):613-619. Epub 2019 Jan 16.

Department of Colorectal Surgery, St James Hospital, Dublin 8, Ireland.

Introduction: Stenting of obstructing colorectal cancers obviates the need for emergency surgery, reducing initial morbidity and mortality rate associated with emergency surgery and facilitates full staging of the neoplastic process with an opportunity to optimize the patient for surgery. Some recent publications have suggested however that this approach may be associated with higher local recurrence rates. We examined our outcomes following colonic stenting as a bridge to resection.

J Trauma Acute Care Surg 2019 Jan 10. Epub 2019 Jan 10.

Trauma Service, Scripps Mercy Hospital, San Diego, California.

Background: Although adhesive small bowel obstruction (ASBO) is frequently managed non-operatively, little is known regarding outcomes on readmission following this approach. Using a large population-based dataset, we evaluated risk factors for operative intervention and mortality at readmission in patients with ASBO who were initially managed non-operatively.

Methods: ASBO patients were identified in the California Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development 2007-2014 patient discharge database. Read More

Surg Laparosc Endosc Percutan Tech 2019 Apr;29(2):133-137

Department of Surgery, Surgical Oncology and Minimally Invasive Division.

Endoscopic self-expandable metal stent (SEMS) placement as a bridge to surgery in large bowel neoplastic obstruction is an alternative to emergency surgery for the obstructive colorectal neoplasms. This study aims to analyze postoperative and long-term outcomes in a series of patients who underwent laparoscopic colorectal resection after SEMS placement. The analysis, after the stratification based on the time elapsed between the onset of the occlusive symptoms and the SEMS positioning, revealed an interesting result, with lower mortality for patients who underwent the procedure within 24 hours of hospitalization (P=0.
