Acute Mesenteric Ischaemia and Coralliform Aorta

A 77 year old man presented with acute mesenteric ischaemia and peritonitis. Computed tomography angiography revealed acute thrombosis of the proximal calcified superior mesenteric artery (SMA) arising from a coralliform aorta (A, asterisk). He underwent emergency retrograde open mesenteric stenting (ROMS) using a 7  × 59 mm Atrium Advanta V12 stent graft (Maquet, Rastatt, Germany) with great saphenous vein patch angioplasty (panel B), followed by right colectomy. Ilio-mesenteric bypass was not feasible because of previous iliac kissing stents and femoro-femoral bypass.

Abstract BACKGROUND: Compared with traditional open surgery, laparoscopic surgery is preferred due to the advantages of less trauma, less pain, and faster recovery. Nevertheless, many patients still suffer from postoperative pain resulting from the surgical incision and associated tissue injury. Many researchers have reported methods to improve postoperative pain control, but there is not a simple and effective method that can be clinically adopted in a widespread manner. We designed this study to prove the hypothesis that application of ropivacaine in the port site and operative site in patients is an effective a...

Abstract The intimate connection and the strict mutual cooperation between the gut and the liver realizes a functional entity called gut-liver axis. The integrity of intestinal barrier is crucial for the maintenance of liver homeostasis. In this mutual relationship, the liver acts as a second firewall towards potentially harmful substances translocated from the gut, and is, in turn, is implicated in the regulation of the barrier. Increasing evidence has highlighted the relevance of increased intestinal permeability and consequent bacterial translocation in the development of liver damage. In particular, in patient...

Fibrin-VLDL Receptor-Dependent Pathway Promotes Leukocyte Transmigration by Inhibiting Src Kinase Fyn and is a Target for Fibrin β15-42 Peptide. Thromb Haemost. 2019 Aug 29;: Authors: Yakovlev S, Cao C, Galisteo R, Zhang L, Strickland DK, Medved L Abstract According to the current view, binding of fibrin degradation product E1 fragment to endothelial VE-cadherin promotes transendothelial migration of leukocytes and thereby inflammation, and fibrin-derived β15-42 peptide reduces leukocyte transmigration by competing with E1 for binding to VE-cadherin and, in addition, by signaling through Src...

We report here a new case in a 35-year-old man presenting with paroxysmal abdominal pain during 13 days. The diagnosis of superior mesenteric venous thrombosis was confirmed by CT angiography, and the patient was operated on the third day of a well-conducted medical treatment with intravenous heparinotherapy, in the presence of localized peritonitis. The laparotomy revealed an ischemic ileal portion treated by segmental resection and terminoterminal anastomosis without complication.

Membrane-bound plasmin is used by immune cells to degrade extracellular matrices, which facilitates migration. The plasminogen receptor Plg-RKT is expressed by immune cells, including monocytes and macrophages. Among monocytes and macrophages, distinct subsets can be distinguished based on cell surface markers and pathophysiological function. We investigated expression of Plg-RKT by monocyte and macrophage subsets and whether potential differential expression might have functional consequences for cell migration. Proinflammatory CD14++CD16+ human monocytes and Ly6Chigh mouse monocytes expressed the highest levels of Plg-RK...

A tubo-ovarian abscess (TOA) is an emergent and potentially life-threatening illness. Rapid administration of antibiotics, interventional radiology abscess drainage, and/or gynecologic surgery are critical interventions. The goal is to prevent abscess rupture, which can lead to peritonitis, severe sepsis, recurrent hospitalizations, and, in rare circumstances, death [1]. Although mortality from TOA in the U.S. is uncommon, the result of an untreated TOA can have lasting damaging effects to pelvic organs and increase the risk of infertility, ectopic pregnancy, ovarian vein thrombosis, and chronic pelvic pain [2].

Efficient migration of macrophages to sites of inflammation requires cell surface–bound plasmin(ogen). Here, we investigated the mechanisms underlying the deficits of plasmin(ogen)-mediated macrophage migration in 2 models: murine thioglycollate-induced peritonitis and in vitro macrophage migration. As previously reported, macrophage migration into the peritoneal cavity of mice in response to thioglycollate was significantly impaired in the absence of plasminogen. Fibrin(ogen) deposition was noted in the peritoneal cavity in response to thioglycollate, with a significant increase in fibrin(ogen) in the plasminogen-de...
