Assessing outcomes in laparoscopic vs open surgical management of adhesive small bowel obstruction.

Surg Endosc 2022 May 19. Epub 2022 May 19.

Department of Surgery, Montefiore Medical Center, The Bronx, 111 E 210th St, Bronx, NY, 10467, USA.

Background: Small bowel obstruction is typically managed nonoperatively; however, refractory small bowel obstructions or closed loop obstructions necessitate operative intervention. Traditionally, laparotomy has long been the standard operative intervention for lysis of adhesions of small bowel obstructions. But as surgeons become more comfortable with minimally invasive techniques, laparoscopy has become a widely accepted intervention for small bowel obstructions. Read More

Two secondary localisation of non-Hodgkin's lymphomas in the upper gastrointestinal tract.

BMJ Case Rep 2022 May 18;15(5). Epub 2022 May 18.

Department of Medical Biotechnologies, University of Siena, Siena, Italy.

Extranodal non-Hodgkin's lymphomas of the gastrointestinal tract represent 30%-40% of all extranodal lymphomas. Gastric lymphomas are increasingly described in the literature due to the development of diagnostic techniques and the increased incidence, together with the reduced incidence of gastric solid neoplasms. Significant diagnostic difficulties are determined by the non-specificity of the symptoms, which are mostly chronic, characterised by a slow progression. Read More

J Comp Pathol 2022 Jun 9;194:1-6. Epub 2022 Apr 9.

Equine Veterinary Medical Center, Qatar Foundation, Doha, Qatar. Electronic address:

A 5-year-old Arabian broodmare with acute colic was diagnosed with lymphocytic ganglioneuritis of the coeliac-mesenteric ganglia and lymphocytic‒plasmacytic enterocolitis resembling inflammatory bowel disease. No significant pathogens were identified by aerobic culture or histopathological examination. The ganglia were multifocally infiltrated with small lymphocytes that were immunopositive for CD3 and negative for CD20 and CD79a antigens, indicating CD3 T-lymphocyte-mediated coeliac-mesenteric ganglioneuritis.

A Delayed Presentation of Perforated Diffuse Large B Cell Lymphoma of the Small Bowel Resulting in a Large Interloop Faecaloma.

Case Rep Surg 2022 5;2022:3881598. Epub 2022 May 5.

Department of General Surgery, Redcliffe Hospital, Anzac Avenue, Redcliffe, Queensland 4020, Australia.

Primary small bowel lymphomas are a rare entity but with significant morbidity and a low five-year overall survival even after surgery. Its diagnosis is often delayed due to the lack of clear specific signs, unfamiliarity amongst clinicians, and the lack of screening tools. This often results in patients presenting with tumour-associated complications such as perforation, obstruction, or gastrointestinal bleeding which warrant urgent surgical intervention. Read More

[Pay attention to endoscopic diagnosis and treatment for confluence disease of pancreaticobiliary ducts].

C Zhang Y L Yang

Zhonghua Yi Xue Za Zhi 2022 May;102(18):1326-1329

Cholelithiasis Center, Tongji University Affiliated Shanghai East Hospital, Shanghai 200120, China.

The confluence of pancreaticobiliary ducts refers to the area between the end of common bile duct, the opening of main pancreatic duct and duodenal papilla. Those confluence diseases of pancreaticobiliary ducts will cause obstruction of biliary and pancreatic outflow tract, cholestasis, pancreatic juice deposition or pancreaticobiliary reflux, and thus induce gallstones, cholangitis, pancreatitis and other diseases. Endoscopic ampullary sphincterotomy is an important way to treat biliary and pancreatic diseases, but the length of incision is determined by the anatomy of Oddi sphincter. Read More

An Update on Acute Mesenteric Ischemia.

Can Assoc Radiol J 2022 05 11:8465371221094280. Epub 2022 May 11.

Department of Diagnostic Radiology, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, MB, Canada

Acute mesenteric ischemia (AMI) is an uncommon yet highly lethal cause of acute abdomen in the emergency setting. Computed tomography (CT) imaging, in particular a biphasic protocol consisting of angiographic and venous phase scans, is widely used to corroborate non-specific clinical findings when suspicions of AMI are high. Techniques such as low kilovoltage peak scanning, dual energy acquisition, or a combined arterial/enteric phase can improve iodine conspicuity and evaluation of bowel enhancement. Read More

Cureus 2022 Apr 3;14(4):e23792. Epub 2022 Apr 3.

Hematology/Oncology, Mercy Catholic Medical Center, Darby, USA.

A 20-year-old female patient with a family history significant for Peutz-Jeghers syndrome presented to the hospital multiple times with complaints of abdominal pain. On the initial visit to the hospital, the patient underwent small bowel resection for small bowel obstruction secondary to intussusception, following which she visited the hospital again one year later for similar complaints and underwent reduction of multiple points of intussusception of the small bowel without any resection of the same. Eventually, the patient underwent resection of the small bowel for the second time, along with tumor resections. Read More
