Benefit of Laparoendoscopic Repair of Hiatal Hernia in the Presence of Aberrant Left Hepatic Artery.

Conclusion: The laparoendoscopic technique of hiatal hernia repair, using extracorporeal arthroscopic sliding knots and concomitant transoral incisionless fundoplication, is safe, preserves an ALHA, and allows proper surgical techniques in a confined operative field.

The objective of this study was to review the current status of drug-induced hypomagnesemia and its adverse effects on cardiovascular disease (CVD) and hypertension. Since magnesium is a potent vasodilator, which modulates vasomotor tone, peripheral blood flow and hypertension, its deficiency could have significant cardiovascular and blood pressure (BP) effects.Areas covered: Studies have shown that several factors can contribute to magnesium deficiency including age, diet, disease, and certain drugs such as diuretics and proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). For an updated perspective of drug-induced hypomagnesemia, a Medline se...

The epithelial layer has an impressive ability to reconstitute and repair upon damage and this process of repair is increasingly seen as a therapeutic target. In vitro models to study this process in primary intestinal cells are lacking. Therefore we established and characterized an in vitro model of intestinal damage and repair by applying γ-radiation on small intestinal or...

We present the case of a 23-year-old female patient with a past medical history of achalasia and laparoscopic seromiotomy. She presented to the Emergency Department with an acute abdomen, characterized by abdominal pain, fever and diffuse tenderness on palpation. PMID: 31793321 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Xu MM, Dawod E, Gaidhane M, Tyberg A, Kahaleh M Abstract Superior mesenteric artery syndrome (SMAS) causes compression and partial or complete obstruction of the duodenum, resulting in abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and weight loss. If conservative therapy fails, the patient is typically referred for enteral feeding or laparoscopic gastrojejunostomy. The last few years have seen increasing use of endoscopic ultrasound-guided gastrojejunostomy (EUS-GJ) for gastric obstruction indications. EUS-GJ involves the creation of a gastric bypass via an echoendoscope in cases in which the small intestine can be pu...

Authors: Yamaguchi H, Morisaka H, Sano K, Nagata K, Ryozawa S, Okamoto K, Ichikawa T Abstract Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) is widely used as a first-line procedure for the definitive diagnosis of pancreatic solid tumor. Adverse events associated with the EUS-FNA procedure include acute pancreatitis, bleeding, infection, and duodenal perforation. Rarely, pancreatic tumors disseminate in the peritoneal cavity or seed in the gastric wall via the biopsy needle tract after EUS-FNA. Such seeding has been noted primarily in cases of adenocarcinomas and has not been associated with solid ps...
