A new hybrid stent using endoscopic vacuum therapy in treating esophageal leaks: a prospective single-center experience of its safety and feasibility with mid-term follow-up.

Dis Esophagus 2021 Sep 24. Epub 2021 Sep 24.

Department of General, Visceral, Cancer and Transplantation Surgery, University Hospital of Cologne, Cologne, Germany.

Self-expandable metal stents (SEMS) and endoscopic vacuum therapy (EVT) are endoscopic options for treating leaks of the esophagus. VACStent® is a variant of SEMS that aims to combine the advantages of SEMS and EVT in one device. Due to this unique construction, VACStent® can build a barrier to the leak and facilitate wound healing with EVT, all while maintaining intestinal passage. Read More

Colon diverticulosis adherent to mesh plug migration after laparoscopic hernia repair: A case study and review of literature.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2021 Sep 13;87:106403. Epub 2021 Sep 13.

Mubarak AlKabeer Hospital, Jabriya, Hawalli, Kuwait.

Introduction: Inguinal hernia repair has evolved from open suture methods to mesh repair which is preformed either open or laparoscopically. Mesh hernia repair has improved the outcome in regards to patient care and recurrence rate but it is also associated with a number of complications. The complications of mesh hernia repair such as deep seated infections, mesh erosion and mesh perforation into nearby viscera has been scarcely reported in literature. Read More

Sublingual Microcirculatory Evaluation of Extracorporeal Hemoadsorption with CytoSorb® in Abdominal Sepsis: A Case Report.

Blood Purif 2021 Sep 15:1-5. Epub 2021 Sep 15.

Department of Intensive Care Medicine, Erasmus MC, University Medical Center Rotterdam, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Cytokemia is associated with microcirculatory alterations often with persistent loss of coherence between the micro- and macrocirculation, linked to organ failure and poor outcome of septic patients. Addition of a hemoadsorbant filter to an extracorporeal circuit next to conventional treatment of septic shock results in the hematological clearance of cytokines, hypothetically leading to normalization of the microcirculation and thus organ perfusion. Bedside sublingual microcirculatory assessment using handheld vital microscopy allows real-time direct visualization of the microcirculation and its response to therapy. Read More

A pore-forming protein-induced surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopic strategy for dynamic tracing of cell membrane repair.

iScience 2021 Sep 14;24(9):102980. Epub 2021 Aug 14.

State Key Laboratory of Analytical Chemistry for Life Science, School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Nanjing University, Nanjing 210023, P.R. China.

The plasma membrane repair holds significance for maintaining cell survival and homeostasis. To achieve the sensitive visualization of membrane repair process for revealing its mechanism, this work designs a perforation-induced surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) strategy by conjugating Raman reporter (4-mercaptobenzoic acid) loaded gold nanostars with pore-forming protein streptolysin O (SLO) to induce the SERS signal on living cells. The SERS signal obviously decreases with the initiation of membrane repair and the degradation of SLO pores due to the departure of gold-nanostar-conjugated SLO. Read More
