Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor: GIST Another Duodenal Ulcer.

Ochsner J 2020 ;20(2):236-238

Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, AL.

Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs), although exceedingly rare, are the most common mesenchymal tumors in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. GISTs are often asymptomatic; approximately 10% are found incidentally on imaging or endoscopy for other indications, although GI bleeding, intestinal obstruction, and perforation can occur. We present a case of upper GI bleeding from a duodenal GIST. Read More

Valentino's Syndrome (with Retroperitoneal Ulcer Perforation): A Rare Clinico-Anatomical Entity.

Am J Case Rep 2020 Jul 2;21:e922647. Epub 2020 Jul 2.

Department of General Surgery, Agios Dimitrios General Hospital, Thessaloniki, Greece.

BACKGROUND In the emergency department pain in the right lower quadrant is a frequent finding and is related to a wide variety of diseases, the most common of which is acute appendicitis. An unusual presentation of pain in the right iliac fossa is due to perforation of a duodenal peptic ulcer. The fluid that originates from the perforated ulcer moves through the paracolic sulcus to the right iliac fossa and causes irritation of the peritoneum and even chemical peri-appendicitis, thereby imitating all the usual causes of pain in the right lower quadrant.

Enhanced Recovery After Emergency Surgery: Utopia or Reality?

Cir Esp 2020 Jun 9. Epub 2020 Jun 9.

Servicio de Cirugía general y del Aparato Digestivo, Hospital General Universitario de Elche, Elche, Alicante, España.

Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) constitutes the application of a series of perioperative measures based on the evidence, in order to achieve a better recovery of the patient and a decrease of the complications and the mortality. These ERAS programs initially proved their advantages in the field of colorectal surgery being progressively adopted by other surgical areas within the general surgery and other surgical specialties. The main excluding factor for the application of such programs has been the urgent clinical presentation, which has caused that despite the large volume of existing literature on ERAS in elective surgery, there are few studies that have investigated the effectiveness of these programs in surgical patients in emergencies.

Objectives: The management of perforated peptic ulcer (PPU) has shifted from vagotomy/drainage to simple closure, followed by postoperative proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) and Helicobacter pylori (HP) eradication. Few studies have focused on the long-term impacts of this trend shift. We hypothesize that simple closure with PPIs is sufficient and does not carry an elevated rate of repeated surgery in non-HP-infected PPU patients. Read More

Omentopexy versus falciformopexy for peptic ulcer perforation.

Ulus Travma Acil Cerrahi Derg 2019 Oct;25(6):580-584

Department of General Surgery, İnönü University Faculty of Medicine, Malatya-Turkey.

Background: Open or laparoscopic Graham's omentopexy is frequently used in the treatment of peptic ulcer perforation (PUP). The technical difficulty of applying the omental plug, especially in patients with previous omentum resection, has led to the use of falciform ligament for the PUP, and some studies have reported that PUP may even be a more advantageous technique than omentopexy. Here, in this study, we aimed to compare the retrospective results of patients who underwent falciformopexy or omentopexy for PUP. Read More

Delay in Source Control in Perforated Peptic Ulcer Leads to 6% Increased Risk of Death Per Hour: A Nationwide Cohort Study.

World J Surg 2020 Mar;44(3):869-875

National Emergency Laparotomy Audit Project Team, Royal College of Anaesthetists, London, UK.

Background: Delay to theatre for patients with intra-abdominal sepsis is cited as a particular risk factor for death. Our aim was to evaluate the potential relationship between hourly delay from admission to surgery and post-operative mortality in patients with perforated peptic ulcer (PPU).

Methods: All patients entered in the National Emergency Laparotomy Audit who had an emergency laparotomy for PPU within 24 h of admission from December 2013 to November 2017 were included. Read More

Laparoscopic repair of perforated peptic ulcer is not prognostic factor for 30-day mortality (a nationwide prospective cohort study).

Int J Surg 2019 Dec 19;72:47-54. Epub 2019 Oct 19.

Department of Surgical Gastroenterology, Aarhus University Hospital, Denmark. Electronic address:

Background: Laparoscopic surgery has become increasingly popular in treating perforated peptic ulcer (PPU). However, currently it is not recognized as a prognostic factor for mortality within this group of patients. The aim of this study was to investigate whether laparoscopic surgery was an independent mortality risk factor in patients treated surgically for perforated peptic ulcer. Read More
