A rare case of ileo-ileal intussusception due to a bleeding lipomatous mass treated by laparoscopic ileal resection.

CONCLUSION: Ileal intussusception caused by lipoma is a rare condition, which can be diagnosed with endoscopy, barium enema, and abdominal ultrasound or CT scanning, but preoperative diagnosis may be difficult. The treatment of choice is the reduction of the intussusception and the resection (laparoscopic or open) of the involved tract. KEY WORDS: Intussusception, Lipoma, Ileum, Laparoscopy, Bleeding.

Authors: Gelabert Mas A Abstract Few specialties have gone through as many transitions in the last decades as Urology. Progressive physiology advances in several disease have become part of the urological knowledge. Laparoscopic surgery and ESWL (Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy) wave have completely turn upside down the whole management of disease. The current text provides a back to the future sigh into Urology. PMID: 32633243 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Gunawardene MA, Hartmann J, Jularic M, Eickholt C, Gessler N, Willems S Abstract Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most frequent persistent cardiac arrhythmia and is associated with an increased mortality. Therefore, an effective differential treatment of patients is mandatory. After a risk stratification oral anticoagulation (OAC) should be initiated depending on the individual stroke risk of each patient. Alternatively, in the presence of contraindications for OAC and an increased risk for bleeding and/or stroke, the implantation of a left atrial appendage closure device can be considered. Symptomatic pati...

Authors: Deltour S, Pautas E Abstract Primary and secondary prevention of stroke is often a challenge in elderly patients due to the increase in both thrombotic and hemorrhagic risks with age. In some cases, there is sufficient data in the elderly population to allow recommendations or anticoagulation decisions to be made, such as for the indication of anticoagulation to prevent stroke related to atrial fibrillation (AF) or the choice of oral anticoagulant therapy in this situation. In other situations, the less robust data leave some questions; this is the case for the delay to initiate an oral anticoagulant thera...
