CT Scan vs Endoscopy
CT Scan vs. Endoscopy
Colorectal cancer is unique in solid tumor oncology because surgical resection for patients with solitary or oligometastatic disease can provide long-term disease-free survival, and even cure. Largely predicated on the notion that earlier recurrence detection will allow a greater chance of surgery with curative intent, specialty guidelines recommend that patients with stage II or III colorectal cancers should be followed up with a 5-year surveillance program of carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) testing, computed tomography (CT) scans, and endoscopy. These guidelines are supported by multiple prior studies on the role and sche...
AbstractAnastomotic intraluminal bleeding is a well-known complication after total gastrectomy. Nevertheless, few data are published on acute bleeding obstruction pancreatitis (BOP) due to a bleeding from the jejunojejunostomy (JJ). In this paper we describe our experience. A total of 140 gastrectomies for EGJ cancer were performed in our Institute from January 2012 to January 2017. All reconstructions were performed with a Roux-en-Y anastomosis: a mechanical end-to-side esophago-jejunostomy and a mechanical end-to-side JJ. Three patients suffered from a bleeding at the JJ with a consequent BOP. We analyzed the time of dia...
AbstractMultiple gastrointestinal cancers in a single patient is a rare entity. In our study, we are showing the clinical presentation and management of these patients. A fifty-nine-year-old asthenic male (already treated case of metachronous colorectal cancer in 2008 and 2011) presented with complaints of generalized weakness and fatigue. Strong family history was present with two of his first-degree relatives having diagnosed with gastrointestinal cancer at the age
ConclusionsEUS-guided RFA is a feasible and safe minimally invasive procedure for patients with unresectable PDAC. Further studies are warranted to demonstrate the impact of EUS-guided RFA on disease progression and overall survival.
Conclusion Multidetector CT can play an important role in diagnosis and preoperative staging of gastric cancer.

ConclusionDaily amylase measurement in drain fluid does not influence the early recognition and management of leakage in gastric cancer surgery.
