Role of Endoscopic Findings and Biopsies in Renal Transplant Recipients With Gastrointestinal Complications: A Tertiary Care Experience.
CONCLUSIONS: We observed a wide spectrum of pathologic lesions, including opportunistic infections, in endoscopic biopsies from our renal transplant patients. Cytomegalovirus colitis was the most common infection in the lower gastrointestinal tract, whereas giardiasis was the most common in the duodenum. PMID: 29534657 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: Pityriasis lichenoides chronica should be included among the broad clinical spectrum of chronic inflammatory skin diseases which may occur during treatment with TNF-alpha antagonists.

Conclusion: It is necessary to demystify the social imaginary that excludes tuberculosis patients, and the development of public policies with health education, prevention, information and fight against stigma is pertinent.

ConclusionAWRC is a useful technique for safe and efficient bile duct cannulation for therapeutic ERCP in the setting of choledocholithiasis at the time of CCY. Despite supine (rather than the traditional prone) positioning, total ERCP times were short and we eliminated any manipulation of the pancreatic duct. No patients in our series developed PEP or post-sphincterotomy bleeding.
ConclusionRobotically assisted Heller myotomy and POEM are safe and efficacious treatments for achalasia with lower rates of technical complications compared to laparoscopic Heller myotomy. With the advancements in endoscopic instruments and robotic surgery, POEM and robotically assisted Heller myotomy should be considered in the treatment of achalasia and esophageal dysmotility disorders.
ConclusionsOur study of published trials indicates that using low, as opposed to standard, IAP during laparoscopic cholecystectomy may reduce patients ’ post-operative pain, including shoulder pain, and length of hospital stay. Heterogeneity in the pooled estimates and high risk of bias of the included trials suggest the need for high-quality, adequately powered RCTs to confirm these findings.
ConclusionsLaparoscopy is effective in treating SBOs due to various etiologies including single band or multiple adhesions, hernias, or masses. Other than BMI, there was no single predictor of success or failure with laparoscopy. Therefore, we conclude that perhaps all patients requiring operative treatment for SBO deserve consideration for a diagnostic laparoscopy.
ConclusionMILE can be performed with low perioperative mortality, and favorable long-term overall and disease-free survival.
AbstractBackgroundAdnexal surgery is believed to be more complex in patients with prior hysterectomy; however, there is little data regarding surgical outcomes. Understanding of individualized risks improves counseling, informed consent, and preoperative planning.MethodsWe performed a retrospective cohort study with a control group; we evaluated 744 patients undergoing laparoscopic adnexal surgery at an academic tertiary care center from 2011 to 2015. Comparisons were made using Chi square, Fisher ’s exact, or Wilcoxon-rank sum tests. We used log-binomial regression to calculate risk ratio and 95% confidence interval...
