We report an unusual case of large Brunner's gland hyperplasia in 72-years old man, admitted to hospital for epigastric pain, recurrent vomiting and significantly weight loss. Upper endoscopy showed an obstructive submucosis tumour of the bulb. Abdominal computed tomography scan revealed a circumferential thickening and stenosing mass of the first part of the duodenum leading to severe obstruction. Though pre-operative biopsies were negative, imaging studies and endoscopy were strongly suggestive of malignancy and the patient underwent duodenocephalopancreatectomy. Brunner's gland hyperplasia may have unusual presentation,...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To compare postoperative temporal expansion in patients treated with fronto-orbital advancement or endoscopy-assisted craniectomy with cranial orthotic therapy. DESIGN: This is a retrospective, multicenter cohort study of patients with unilateral coronal craniosynostosis (UCS). SETTING: Computed tomographic (CT) scans were drawn from UCS patients treated at Boston Children's Hospital or St Louis Children's Hospital. PATIENTS: The study included 56 patients with UCS after fronto-orbital advancement (n = 32) or endoscopic repair (n = 24) and 10 age-matched controls. INTERVENTI...

Abstract An 81-year-old patient with significant cardiac comorbidities, a history of sigmoid resection 6 years ago, and iliac bypass surgery 19 years ago presented with mild hematochezia for the previous 3 days. While hemodynamically stable at first, he developed massive bleeding during preparation for colonoscopy and underwent a short course of cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Colonoscopy revealed no active bleeding but a protuberance of the colonic wall and a coagulation clot. In ultrasonography immediately after endoscopy, a large aneurysm was diagnosed and diagnosis of an iliaco-colonic fistula was assumed. CT s...

AbstractBackgroundSmall bowel lesions (SBL) are rare, representing diagnostic and management challenges. The purpose of this cross-sectional study was to evaluate diagnostic modalities used and management practices of patients with SBL at an advanced endoscopic referral center.MethodsWe analyzed patients undergoing surgical management for SBL from 2005 to 2015 at a single tertiary care center. Patients were stratified into gastrointestinal bleed/anemia (GIBA) or obstruction/pain (OP).ResultsOne hundred and twelve patients underwent surgery after presenting with either GIBA (n = 67) or OP (n = 45...

The objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of the CSS stent in eliminating Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection in a rabbit model of sinusitis. MethodsA ciprofloxacin‐eluting sinus stent was created by coating ciprofloxacin/Eudragit RS100 on biodegradable poly‐D/L‐lactic acid (2 mg). After analyzing in‐vitro inhibition of P aeruginosa (PAO‐1 strain) biofilm formation, a total of 8 stents (4 shams, 4 CSSs) were placed unilaterally in rabbit maxillary sinuses via dorsal sinusotomy after inducing infection for 1 week with PAO‐1. Animals were assessed 2 weeks after stent insertion with nasal endoscopy, sin...

ConclusionsAfter LSG there is a global tendency to an accelerated gastric emptying, although only significant in the antrum preservation group; however, no differences were observed regarding the %EWL between groups after 1  year follow-up.

ConclusionsCholangiocarcinoma is a presumably fatal disease, especially because patients tend to present late with unresectable disease. Many patient-related and disease-related factors may alter survival.
