Rationale: Adenocarcinoma coexists with adjacent microscopic gastrointestinal stromal tumor (micro-GIST) is rare, especially in the rectum, where the gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) have the lower incidence rate. It is easy to ignore the concurrent micro-GIST due to the untypical symptoms. Patient concerns: A 77-year-old male patient suffered from lower abdominal pain for 20 days and presented with per rectal bleeding for 10 days. He had the medical history of hypertension and diabetes for more than 25 years. Diagnoses: Endoscopy revealed that the patient had rectum adenocarcinoma and multiple rectum polyps...

Computed tomography showed contrast-enhanced mucosal hypertrophy from the duodenal papilla to the distal bile duct. Endoscopic examinations revealed a laterally spreading granular tumor and ampullary swelling. After surgical resection, an examination revealed well-differentiated adenocarcinoma of the ampulla with tubular adenoma spreading from the distal...

ConclusionsThe commonest site-specific bleed etiologies were duodenal ulcers for UGIB, EGM lesions for SBB, and tumours for LGIB. SBB presented diagnostic challenge. Diagnostic algorithm was tailored to bleed site, age-specific etiology, bleed severity, and associated abdominal/systemic symptoms. Management challenges were acute severe bleed, occult GIB, SBB, obscure GIB, and rare etiologies. IOE has a useful role in SBB management.

ConclusionSG leaks can add long-term morbidity. Stent can be used successfully to treat SG leak if used judiciously. There should be low threshold for investigating patients with EWL of>  100% for anatomical complications like stricture, fistula or kink in the gastric sleeve. We wanted to make the bariatric fraternity aware of a rare late (>  12 weeks) complication of gastro-colic fistula after successfully treated SG leak. Limited literature is published about this rare complication and its management which ranges from conservative management to stent placement to surgical intervention (Asian Jour...

ConclusionWhile differences in pressure between the abdominal and thoracic cavities are important, the size of the hiatal defect is something that can be influenced surgically. As with all oncological surgery, safe resection margins are essential without adversely affecting anatomical structure and function. The commonest cause is excessive widening of the esophageal hiatus during surgery and, therefore, narrowing the hiatus to fit the conduit can prevent this complication.
