Anesthetic Consideration for Peroral Endoscopic Myotomy.

Anesthetic Consideration for Peroral Endoscopic Myotomy. Clin Endosc. 2019 Jul 10;: Authors: Bang YS, Park C Abstract A recent achalasia guideline suggests that peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) is a safe option for achalasia that is as effective as Heller myotomy. It is recommended that POEM should be performed under general anesthesia. The incidence of adverse events such as bleeding, perforation, and carbon dioxide insufflation-related complications was lower in POEM under endotracheal general anesthesia than in POEM under sedation. Subcutaneous emphysema, pneumothorax, pneumomediastinum, pneumoperitoneum, and accompanying hemodynamic instability can be caused by carbon dioxide insufflation. Treatment of possible physiological changes and adverse events during the POEM procedure from the point of view of anesthesiologists may give endoscopists a new perspective on improving patient safety. The territory of therapeutic endoscopy can be expanded through cooperation with other departments, including anesthesia services. Efforts to understand different perspectives will certainly help not only secure patient safety but also expand the area of treatment. PMID: 31288505 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionCombined intraperitoneal and extraperitoneal colonic perforation are rare presentations following diagnostic colonoscopy and often difficult to diagnose based on the clinical manifestation only. Understanding the manifestation of extraperitoneal perforation will help to properly identify the condition and preventing morbidity and mortality in these patients.

Background: Bleeding in the biopsy tract has been studied for its ability to decrease the risk of pneumothorax  with indefinite results in the previous studies.Purpose: To investigate the risk factors for needle-tract bleeding (NTB) and the possible effect of NTB on the pneumothorax and resultant chest tube placement after CT-guided cutting needle biopsy (CT-CNB) of pulmonary lesions.Methods: Predictive variables for NTB and the effect of NTB on the development of pneumothorax and consequent chest tube placement were retrospectively determined in 416 patients who had undergone an 18-gauge non-coaxial CT-CNB (338 men a...

Introduction: Endoscopic lung volume reduction (ELVR) has become standard for patients with emphysema-associated hyperinflation. It is unclear how published evidence from high-volume specialized centers can be reproduced in a real world situation.Aim: Perform a retrospective chart review in order to assess safety and efficacy of ELVR in a single center real world situation.Methods: All consecutive 61 patients referred from 2010 to 2017 to the Department of Pulmonary Medicine of the Cantonal Hospital St. Gallen for an ELVR were included. Lung function data (FEV1, VC, FVC, RV, TLC, DLCO) as well as 6-min walking distance wer...

Authors: Ferreiro-Iglesias R, Blanco Freire MN, Paz Novo M, Domínguez Muñoz JE Abstract A 47-year-old man was attended at the emergency room for severe chest pain after eating sausage with subsequent vomiting and mild upper gastrointestinal bleeding. In the chest radiography we could not see abnormalities. He referred previous episodes of choking without consulting. The urgent gastroscopy detected tertiary contractile activity (nutcracker esophagus) and a foreign body in the lower third of the esophagus. After removing the food bolus, we observed a 4 cm longitudinal tear compatible with esophageal rup...

Authors: Baldi S, Coni F, Limerutti G, Baccega M, Ruffini E, Solidoro P Abstract Endoscopic treatment of emphysema is supported by different methods, including valves, coils and sealants. The mechanism is mainly related to volume reduction of targeted area. Endobronchial valves (EBV) appear the most studied method. In a multicentre randomised study, placement of unidirectional endobronchial valves resulted in a statistically significant functional improvement in the treated cohort compared to the control. Adverse events, occurring post procedure, included COPD exacerbations, haemoptysis, pneumothorax and pneumonia....
