Cronkhite-Canada syndrome causing pouch outlet obstruction 5 years after roux-en-y gastric bypass.

CONCLUSION: Diffuse polyposis in Cronkhite-Canada syndrome is a rare cause for pouch obstruction after RYGB. Clinical examination should focus on dermatologic findings. PMID: 29202677 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Amano H, Tanaka Y, Kawashima H, Deie K, Suzuki K, Fujiogi M, Morita K, Iwanaka T, Uchida H Abstract Fundoplication is a standard treatment for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) in neurologically impaired children. However, it has a high recurrence rate due to wrap herniation and disruption resulting from the failure or enlargement of the esophageal hiatus suture site. In adult patients with GERD, reinforcement of the sutured esophageal hiatus with a mesh significantly reduces the recurrence rate after surgery for esophageal hiatus hernia. In children, there are no big series of fundoplication with mes...

This study assessed adenosine triphosphate (ATP) bioluminescence to demonstrate cleanliness prior to endoscopy. ATP testing was compared with microbiological monitoring for 127 endoscopes. Samples were taken after cleaning, reprocessing and storage, but immediately before the endoscopy procedure. We recommend implementing ATP testing prior to endoscopy procedures as an alternative to microbiological testing at periodic intervals. ATP testing provides a convenient assessment of endoscopy hygiene to demonstrate safety and quality assurance.

Abstract Early Cambrian Pseudooides prima has been described from embryonic and post-embryonic stages of development, exhibiting long germ-band development. There has been some debate about the pattern of segmentation, but this interpretation, as among the earliest records of ecdysozoans, has been generally accepted. Here, we show that the 'germ band' of P. prima embryos separates along its mid axis during development, with the transverse furrows between the 'somites' unfolding into the polar aperture of the ten-sided theca of Hexaconularia sichuanensis, conventionally interpreted as a scyphozoan cnidarian; co-occ...

CONCLUSION: Synchronous oesophageal cancer is common in patients with hypopharyngeal cancer. The heavy drinking patients with hypopharyngeal cancer should undergo intensive monitoring. Image-enhanced endoscopic screening is helpful in the prediction and early detection of second primary oesophageal cancer. PMID: 29237517 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Kalhun V, Sadick N Abstract Biologic drugs, a novel class of agents engineered to target specifc mediators of infammation, and small-molecule inhibitors that pen-etrate the cell membrane to interact with targets inside a cell represent the cutting-edge of pharmacological biomedical therapeutics. Clinical studies have already demonstrated the effectiveness of this new generation of drugs in treating a variety of medical illnesses and conditions that were refractory to traditional treatments. This review aims to describe the latest available or currently in-develop-ment drugs, biologic agents, and small mole...

Authors: Kourkouta S Abstract A 59-year-old woman was referred for specialist treatment due to peri-implantitis affecting four implants in the anterior maxilla. On presentation, probing depths were up to 12 mm with bleeding on probing/suppuration and extensive peri-implant bone loss. There was a history of treated chronic periodontitis. Nonsurgical management was followed by regenerative peri-implant surgery. Peri-implant probing depths reduced to a maximum of 5 mm and remained stable throughout the 5-year follow-up period. Cone beam computed tomography at 2 years postoperatively confirmed the presence of regenerat...

CONCLUSIONS: Within the limitations of this study, the present data seem to confirm the hypothesis that the clinical outcome of implants inserted in sinuses grafted with ABB vs implants inserted in sinuses grafted with mixed 50% ABB and 50% autologous bone are comparable. Conflict-of-interest statement: This study was not supported by any company. All the authors declare no conflict of interest. PMID: 29234749 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract PURPOSE: To compare the outcome of dental implants placed following full-thickness flap surgery with flapless surgery in controlled type 2 diabetic patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 92 controlled type 2 diabetic patients, who needed missing mandibular first molars to be replaced by implants, were selected for a single-centre, parallel group, double-blinded randomised controlled trial. Patients were randomly allocated into two groups: flap (46 patients) vs flapless (46 patients) implant placement. Implants were loaded with metal-ceramic crowns, 4 months after placement in both groups. O...
