Authors: Taki S, Maekita T, Sakata M, Fukatsu K, Maeda Y, Iguchi M, Ito H, Kitano M Abstract Continuous duodenal levodopa/carbidopa intestinal gel delivery by a gastrostomy infusion system improves control of Parkinson's disease. The overall complication rates of percutaneous endoscopic gastrojejunostomy were reported to be 41% and 59% for immediate and delayed adverse events, respectively. A 72-year-old woman underwent percutaneous endoscopic gastrojejunostomy using the delivery system noted above. Abdominal pain and vomiting occurred 3 months later. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy showed a longitudinal ulcer extending...

AbstractPediatric Crohn ’s disease (CD) is characterized by an aggressive course that commonly requires more intensive pharmacological and surgical treatments. In spite of the therapeutic advances in monitoring and management, including the widespread use of biologic therapy, the cumulative incidence of surgery in childr en with CD is still high. However, surgery is usually not curative and disease recurrence after small bowel resection is common. Gastrointestinal endoscopy is currently the gold standard to evaluate disease progression after surgery, but other non-invasive methods have been suggested. Although the e ...

This study was performed according to the PRISMA guidelines. A search was performed on Medline, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Library to identify relevant articles. Dichotomous and continuous outcomes were analyzed as risk ratio (RR) and mean difference (MD), respectively. All post-operative outcomes were within 30  days after surgery. The quality of studies was assessed using the Newcastle–Ottawa Scale. Meta-regression analysis was conducted to identify sources of heterogeneity.ResultsThree studies totaling 262 subjects compared LS (45.0%) against RS (55.0%) in obese patients. The RS group had a significantly reduce...

ConclusionsHSI is suitable for contact-free, non-invasive, and intraoperative evaluation of physiological tissue parameters within gastric conduits. Therefore, HSI is a valuable method for evaluating ischemic conditioning effects and may contribute to reduce anastomotic complications. Additional studies are needed to establish normal values and thresholds of the presented parameters for the gastric conduit anastomotic site.

AbstractBackgroundHepatectomy remains the only curative option in patients presenting with colorectal liver metastases (CLM). Although laparoscopic approach has improved postoperative morbidity and mortality rates, its suitability for patients of all age groups has yet to be confirmed. The aim of this study was to analyze postoperative outcomes following laparoscopic liver resection (LLR) in different age groups of patients presenting with CLM.MethodsAll patients who underwent LLR for CLM from 2008 to 2017 were reviewed. Patients were divided into four age groups:  75 years. Baseline and intraoperative characte...
