Intra-operative MRI vs endoscopy in achieving gross total resection of pituitary adenomas: a systematic review

ConclusionFinal GTR proportions are similar whether the surgeon uses a microscope supplemented with iMRI or endoscope with or without iMRI. The benefit of the two technologies may be complementary for macroadenomas. These findings are important to consider when comparing the efficacy of different technical strategies in the management of pituitary adenomas.

Abstract Diffuse cavernous haemangioma is a rare disease of the rectum. It usually presents with a history of rectal bleeding in children and young adults. When conservative methods fail to control bleeding, traditionally resection is recommended. A 50-year-old man presented with per rectal bleeding and was diagnosed with diffuse cavernous haemangioma of the sigmoid and rectum extending up to 40 cm in the left colon through endoscopy, magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography. The diagnosis was confirmed by biopsy. This patient was successful managed conservatively with tranexamic acid as needed, avoiding...

The clinical importance of pancreatic duct (PD) “cutoff” in the absence of a mass lesion identified on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is unclear. Endoscopic ultrasound with fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) is the gold standard for diagnosis of suspected pancreatic neoplasms. While the finding of PD cutoff may represent benign disease (e.g. chronic pancreatitis), it may also indicate malignant obstruction. We sought to evaluate the effectiveness of EUS-FNA for evaluation of PD cutoff on MRI.

Authors: Matsuda S, Yoshimura H, Sano K Abstract Simple bone cysts (SBCs) are uncommon lesions that usually occur in the long bones of the skeleton and in the body of the mandible. Displacement of the mandibular canal due to cystic lesions have been reported previously. However, there have been no reports in which endoscopy has been utilized to observe an inferior alveolar neurovascular bundle in the lesion lumen. This current study presents a case of mandibular SBC accompanied by a floating inferior alveolar neurovascular bundle. A 13-year-old boy presented to the Department of Dentistry and Oral Surgery, Universi...

Rohan Kamat, Pankaj Gupta, Yalaka Rami Reddy, Suman Kochhar, Birinder Nagi, Rakesh KochharIndian Journal of Radiology and Imaging 2019 29(1):6-13 Corrosive ingestion is a common form of poisoning. Corrosive agents cause severe damage to the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. The most severe forms of injury can lead to mortality; however, the major concern with this type of injury is life-long morbidity. Upper GI endoscopy is the test of choice for assessing severity in the acute phase of the disease. The long-term management is based on the site, length, number, location, and tightness of the stricture. This information is best...

CONCLUSION:: Tumor necrosis may be problematic in obtaining a diagnosis for SMARCB1-deficient sinonasal carcinomas. Thus, sampling various regions of the tumor during initial biopsy can prevent delays in diagnosis and treatment. PMID: 30873845 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We report the case of a 49-year-old woman presenting with proximal muscle weakness, weight loss, severe anemia, and melena. One year before, the diagnosis of a "fundic gland polyposis" was presumed after endoscopic evaluation for iron deficiency anemia had shown numerous polyps limited to the gastric mucosa. On admission, the diagnosis of dermatomyositis was made based on laboratory results with a marked elevated creatine kinase as well as the presence of characteristic clinical findings and muscle histology. Upper endoscopy revealed multiple pedunculated, edematous polyps in the stomach without apparent cancerou...

Hemangiomas are benign vascular soft tissue tumors, which most frequently occur in the skin or subcutaneous tissue. Intramuscular hemangiomas typically occur in the trunk and extremities and less frequently in the head and neck. Among these, those occurring in the temporalis muscle are extremely rare. The authors report the case of a 43-year-old Japanese male with a mass in his left temporal fossa. Computed tomography images showed no erosion of the zygomatic bone, and magnetic resonance imaging revealed an ovoid well-marginated mass within the temporal muscle. The lesion was surgically excised with an endoscopy procedure ...
