CONCLUSIONS: This endoscopy-based study revealed the most common histology of benign SB tumors were hamartoma and adenoma, and malignant ones were lymphomas, GISTs, adenocarcinomas and metastatic cancers. Most of them were male gender, except for GISTs, and with proximal location, except for lymphomas. Further large-scale investigation efforts are warranted to elucidate the epidemiology of SB tumors.

Authors: Singh HK, Withers GD, Ee LC Abstract OBJECTIVES: Quality indicators for colonoscopy in adults are largely driven by colorectal cancer screening, and include cecal intubation rates, with rates of>90% recommended. In contrast, colorectal cancer is rare in childhood, with paucity of data on relevant quality indicators for pediatric colonoscopy. It is also unclear whether high rates of cecal intubation are achievable in small children. Our aim was to audit all colonoscopies performed in a tertiary pediatric center to examine clinical indications for procedure, completeness of examination with cecal and ilea...

In this study, researchers put some numbers to the correlation, and improve on previous attempts to rule out wealth and other effects as significant contributing causes. A study finds that a Chinese policy is unintentionally causing people in northern China to live 3.1 years less than people in the south, due to air pollution concentrations that are 46 percent higher. These findings imply that every additional 10 micrograms per cubic meter of particulate matter pollution reduces life expectancy by 0.6 years. The elevated mortality is entirely due to an increase in cardiorespiratory deaths, indicating that air poll...

The video presents a 78 year-old G1P1 female with a history of endometriosis who presented with post-coital vaginal bleeding. She had a history of a total abdominal hysterectomy at the age of 46 due to pelvic pain, and later underwent bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy and treatment of endometriosis at the age of 56 due to continued pain. She was on hormonal supplementation with transdermal estrogen. Preoperative examination and imaging revealed a 5 cm friable mass at the vaginal cuff and a smaller pelvic mass in the left pelvic sidewall.

Harry and his father at Dana/Farber-Boston Children’s In their Brookline home-away-from-home, 2-year-old Duy Anh “Harry” Le plays with blocks and pop-up toys on the floor with his mother, Thao Nguyen. He is lively and happy, and his skin is clear. He looks almost nothing like the sickly baby covered in eczema who arrived in Boston from his native Vietnam in November of 2016 to participate in a gene therapy clinical trial for Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome. Children with the potentially life-threatening, inherited immune system deficiency have difficulty producing platelets, the blood component that fosters clot...

We describe five different techniques to performing EUS-GE. Early studies show excellent efficacy. Stent misdeployment/displacement is the most frequent relevant adverse event. Prospective and preferably randomized trials with comparison to endoluminal enteral stents and surgical gastroenterostomy are needed.
