Authors: Yang Z, Xie Z, Pei X, Quan X, Feng D Abstract The guiding value of thrombelastography (TEG) on the selection of surgical timing for patients scheduled for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) was investigated. A total of 90 subjects with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) treated between February 2014 and December 2016 in Henan Provincial People's Hospital were recruited. The patients received dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) and were scheduled for CABG. Subjects were randomly allocated into two groups, TEG group (n=45) and non-TEG group (n=45). Patients in the TEG group withheld medications at 24 h prior to ...

Authors: He S, Liu X, Du G, Chen W, Ruan W Abstract Clinical value and safety of the use of gastroscopy as oral choledochoscopy in the treatment of biliary diseases was explored. Clinical data of 55 patients with biliary diseases who underwent gastroscopy were retrospectively analyzed. The types of gastroscopy, size of duodenal papilla incision, balloon dilatation, the success rate of gastroscopy entry, depth of gastroscopy entering into bile duct, endoscopic diagnosis and postoperative complications were recorded. Simple insertion-by-hand was performed, and insertion into common bile duct was successfully achieved...

Conclusion: We conclude that there is no difference between bougie and balloon dilation of BESs regarding symptomatic relief, recurrence rate at 12 months, bleeding, and perforation. Patients undergoing balloon dilation present less severe postprocedure pain. PMID: 30116265 [PubMed]

Authors: Berry R, Han J, Girotra M, Tabibian JH Abstract 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. A classic triad of right upper quadrant pain, jaundice, and overt upper gastrointe...

Dual Energy Computed Tomography Scans of the Bowel: Benefits, Pitfalls, and Future Directions. Radiol Clin North Am. 2018 Sep;56(5):805-819 Authors: Yeh BM, Obmann MM, Westphalen AC, Ohliger MA, Yee J, Sun Y, Wang ZJ Abstract Current computed tomography bowel imaging is challenging given the variable distension, content, and location of the bowel, the different appearance of tumors within and adjacent to bowel, and peristaltic artifacts. Published data remain sparse. Derangements in enhancement may be highlighted, image artifacts reduced, and radiation dose from multiphase scans minimized. This m...

Abstract Lower gastrointestinal bleeding is defined as occurring distal to the ligament of Treitz and presents as hematochezia, melena, or with anemia and positive fecal occult blood test. Imaging plays a pivotal role in the localization and treatment of lower gastrointestinal bleeds. Imaging tests in the workup of acute lower gastrointestinal bleeding include computed tomography (CT) angiography, nuclear medicine scintigraphy, and conventional catheter angiography. Catheter angiography can also be used to deliver treatment. Imaging tests in the workup of occult lower gastrointestinal bleeding include CT enterogra...

CONCLUSION: Arteriovenous access surgery can be safely performed in an ambulatory setting, in spite of complex cases, comorbidities, or the increasing implementation of axillary plexus blocks. Surgical results and patency are good, and complications necessitating readmission remain very low. PMID: 30117363 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Sanchez-Mete L, Stigliano V Abstract Despite its rarity in the general population, small bowel adenocarcinoma risk is increased in individuals with hereditary colorectal cancer syndromes (HCCS). In the last decade, the advent of capsule endoscopy and device-assisted balloon enteroscopy procedures in patients with HCCS have allowed to investigate the whole small bowel, increasing the diagnostic yield of small bowel tumor. Nonetheless, there is a significant variability in the international guideline recommendations. The aim of this review is to provide an update on surveillance of small bowel in HCCS and to...
