ConclusionFollow-up CTs were performed more frequently in patients after surgical resection than in patients after endoscopic resection of EGCs. However, CT scans were not effective in detecting recurrent tumors after either treatment methods, especially for patients treated for mucosal gastric cancer.

ConclusionUse of the AM route to place the cervical anastomosis within 1.5 cm above the suprasternal notch might avoid excessive pressure on the gastric tube from the surrounding structures, resulting in a reduction in the risk of an anastomotic leak.

Authors: Ozturk A, Gullu YT Abstract OBJECTIVE: To determine the correlation and/or discrepancies between positron emission tomography (PET-CT) findings, endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) and surgery in the staging of non-small cell lung carcinoma. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Data were evaluated retrospectively from a prospective interventional endoscopy database. Positive results with EBUS-TBNA was the first end point and all cytology negatives were confirmed with mediastinoscopy/surgery. RESULTS: Four hundred and eighty three patients were included and 1017 lymph nodes...

Authors: Wright EK, Ding NS, Niewiadomski O Abstract Australia has one of the highest incidence rates of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in the world. Early diagnosis and treatment for IBD is critical. For Crohn disease, in particular, this may change the natural history of disease and reduce disability. Faecal calprotectin is a sensitive test that can be used by primary care physicians to assist in determining which patients with gastrointestinal symptoms may have IBD. This allows for prompt identification of patients who may benefit from endoscopy. Regular re-evaluation of disease status with strategies that can...

An 81-year-old male presented with loss of appetite, early satiety and iron deficiency anaemia. A computed tomography (CT) scan of the abdomen and pelvis during initial work-up revealed diffuse gastric mural thickening associated with a large ulcer and adjacent gastro-hepatic lymphadenopathy. The CT appearances, together with the clinical features, were highly suspicious for an infiltrative type of gastric malignancy. Endoscopic biopsy however showed erosive inflammation, IgG4 plasmacytosis and fibrosis, raising the possibility of IgG4-related disease. A serologic assay for IgG showed normal IgG4 and elevated IgG2 serum le...

AbstractConcha bullosa is one of the most common anatomical variant found in the patients of chronic rhinosinusitis. To study the role of concha bullosa in patients of chronic rhinosinusitis a prospective cross sectional study was done comprising of 60 patients who were having symptoms of sinusitis for more than 12  weeks. These were evaluated with the help of nasal endoscope and CT scan. DNS and concha bullosa are the most common anatomical variant seen in the patients of chronic rhinosinusitis with percentage being 88.3% and 76.6% respectively. Patients with deviated nasal septum and large concha bullosa (b ulbous a...

We report a patient with highly advanced gastric carcinoma who was treated successfully with chemoradiotherapy (CRT) comprising S-1 and cisplatin. The patient was a 71-year-old male who was diagnosed with advanced gastric carcinoma by esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) by medical examination. EGD demonstrated type 3 advanced gastric carcinoma in the posterior wall of the upper gastric body. An abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan showed that the gastric wall was thickened due to gastric primary tumor, and large lymph nodes (LNs) including the lesser curvature LN, anterosuperior LN along the common hepatic artery and some ...
