USEFULNESS OF GASTRIC SUBMUCOSAL DISSECTION DEPTH TO EVALUATE SKILL ACQUIREMENT IN SHORT TERM TRAINING COURSES IN ESD: AN EXPERIMENTAL STUDY.

Arq Gastroenterol 2018 Jul-Sep;55(3):221-229

Universidade de São Paulo, Faculdade de Medicina, Departamento de Endoscopia Gastrointestinal, SP, Brasil.

Background: Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is a complex endoscopic procedure, with high rates of adverse events and technical difficulties. To overcome that problem, many training centers published the importance of animal models for skill acquirement in ESD. However, no study has used the submucosal dissection depth (DSUB) as a parameter to evaluate the learning curve in ESD, which might be a relevant factor since an optimal resection plane is important to achieve a curative resection and avoid intraoperative complications.

Stage IV duodenal GIST requiring emergency pancreaticoduodenectomy - diagnosis difficulties and therapeutic options.

Rom J Morphol Embryol 2018 ;59(2):543-548

IInd Surgical Clinic, University of Medicine and Pharmacy of Craiova, Romania;

This paper presents a very rarely encountered case of a 45-year-old female, admitted in our Surgical Clinic for upper digestive bleeding (repeated hematochezia). The upper endoscopy was negative, but the barium meal discovered an apparently extrinsic duodenal (D3) stenosis; abdominal ultrasound diagnosed a left liver mass suggesting a metastatic tumor. The hematochezia relapse, with hemodynamic instability imposed emergency surgery; on laparotomy, a bleeding tumor located on the duodenopancreatic region was discovered, and a pylorus-preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy (Traverso-Longmire) was performed.

Hemobilia: Perspective and Role of the Advanced Endoscopist.

Gastroenterol Res Pract 2018 12;2018:3670739. Epub 2018 Jul 12.

Division of Gastroenterology, Department of Medicine, Olive View-UCLA Medical Center, Sylmar, CA, USA.

Hemobilia refers to bleeding from and/or into the biliary tract and is an uncommon cause of gastrointestinal hemorrhage. Hemobilia has been documented since the 1600s, but due to its relative rarity, it has only been more critically examined in recent decades. Most cases of hemobilia are iatrogenic and caused by procedures involving the liver, pancreas, bile ducts, and/or the hepatopancreatobiliary vasculature, with trauma and malignancy representing the two other major causes.

Adhering to quality medical care: a case report of upper gastrointestinal bleeding due to self-expandable metal stent placed for benign duodenal obstruction.

Ann Transl Med 2018 Jul;6(13):268

Hepatogastroenterology Unit, Second Department of Internal Medicine-Propaedeutic Research Institute and Diabetes Center, Attikon University General Hospital, Medical School, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Athens, Greece.

Endoscopic placement of self-expandable metal stent (SEMS) is an efficient method for the palliative decompression of malignant gastro duodenal obstruction. However, its role in treating benign obstructive conditions is controversial. We herein present an unusual case of recurrent upper gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding episodes due to ischemic lesions induced by an uncovered SEMS placed several years before to treat post peptic ulcer pyloric obstruction.
