Applying refined pancreaticogastrostomy techniques in pancreatic trauma.

World J Gastrointest Surg 2022 May;14(5):521-524

Department of Surgery, University of Cape Town Health Sciences Faculty, Cape Town 7925, South Africa.

We comment on a study titled "Feasibility and safety of "bridging" pancreaticogastrostomy for pancreatic trauma in Landrace pigs" in which ten pigs were randomized to either experimental "bridging" pancreaticogastrostomy (PG) or a control group with a routine mucosa-to-mucosa PG. At six months anastomoses had strictured and closed in both groups. The authors concluded that "bridging" PG is feasible and safe in damage control surgery during the early stage of pancreatic injury. Read More

Case Report: Neurodevelopmental Outcome in a Small-for-Gestational-Age Infant With Symptomatic Hyperinsulinemic Hypoglycemia, Gaze Preference, and Infantile Spasms.

Front Endocrinol (Lausanne) 2022 3;13:818252. Epub 2022 Jun 3.

Pediatric Academic Clinical Programme, Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, Singapore, Singapore.

Recurrent and profound hypoglycemia is a leading cause of neonatal brain injury. Small-for-gestational-age infants are at risk of hypoglycemia due to substrate deficiency and hyperinsulinism. Inappropriate insulin secretion by the β-cells of the pancreas results in hypoglycemia, neuronal energy deprivation, and parieto-occipital brain injury. Read More

Application of intraoperative navigation in 3D laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy: A case report.

Exp Ther Med 2022 Jul 18;24(1):452. Epub 2022 May 18.

Department of Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Surgery, Kanghua Hospital, Dongguan, Guangdong 523080, P.R. China.

Laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy is one of the most challenging operations in abdominal surgery, with a high risk and numerous potential complications. Laparoscopy can magnify the surgical field, improving vision, but it cannot see through and identify the internal structures of the surgical field. Intraoperative navigation is a technology currently being developed; it projects the three-dimensional (3D) image established before surgery onto the surgical area during surgery, locates the anatomical landmarks, matches the 3D image with the actual image, and then displays the relationship between the tumor and the surrounding blood vessels.

Intraoperative endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography for traumatic pancreatic ductal injuries: Two case reports.

World J Gastrointest Endosc 2022 May;14(5):342-350

Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, University of Maryland School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD 21201, United States.

Background: In order to successfully manage traumatic pancreatic duct (PD) leaks, early diagnosis and operative management is paramount in reducing morbidity and mortality. In the acute setting, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) can be a useful, adjunctive modality during exploratory laparotomy. ERCP with sphincterotomy and stent placement improves preferential drainage in the setting of injury, allowing the pancreatic leak to properly heal. Read More

IgG4-related disease presenting with multiorgan involvement.

BMJ Case Rep 2022 Jun 1;15(6). Epub 2022 Jun 1.

Gastroenterology and Hepatology, UPMC, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA.

Immunoglobulin G4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is a rare fibroinflammatory immune-mediated condition which can affect multiple organ systems and form mass-like lesions. Initial presentation can mimic other diseases such as pancreatic malignancy when there is pancreatic involvement or tuberculosis (TB) when there are pulmonary lesions or hypertrophic pachymeningitis (HP). Here, we report a novel case of IgG4-RD presenting as bilateral subdural haematomas with additional findings. Read More

Liver Trauma: Until When We Have to Delay Surgery? A Review.

Life (Basel) 2022 May 6;12(5). Epub 2022 May 6.

General, Emergency and Transplant Surgery Department, ASST-Settelaghi and University of Insubria, 21100 Varese, Italy.

Liver involvement after abdominal blunt trauma must be expected, and in up to 30% of cases, spleen, kidney, and pancreas injuries may coexist. Whenever hemodynamics conditions do not contraindicate the overcoming of the ancient dogma according to which exploratory laparotomy should be performed after every major abdominal trauma, a CT scan has to clarify the liver lesions so as to determine the optimal management strategy. Except for complete vascular avulsion, no liver trauma grade precludes nonoperative management. Read More

Neutrophil Extracellular Traps Regulate HMGB1 Translocation and Kupffer Cell M1 Polarization During Acute Liver Transplantation Rejection.

Front Immunol 2022 6;13:823511. Epub 2022 May 6.

Department of Hepatobiliary Surgery, The First Affiliated Hospital of Chongqing Medical University, Chongqing, China.

Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) play important roles in hepatic ischemic reperfusion injury (IRI) and acute rejection (AR)-induced immune responses to inflammation. After liver transplantation, HMGB1, an inflammatory mediator, contributes to the development of AR. Even though studies have found that HMGB1 can promote NET formation, the correlation between NETs and HMGB1 in the development of AR following liver transplantation has not been elucidated.
