The beauty of simplicity
Normally, each month when new issues of journals are opened or scanned online, there can be an element of excitement together with an element of trepidation. The latter can stem from complicated tables concerning obscure genes that govern inflammatory pathways that interact with bacteria, tedious immunologic data, and metabolic novelties that boggle the mind. However, in this issue of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, Overwater et al1 have provided us with a breath of fresh air.
Publication date: Available online 21 September 2019Source: Cirugía Española (English Edition)Author(s): Alexis Luna Aufroy, Salvador Navarro SotoAbstractPreoperative clinical staging is critical to select those patients whose disease is localized and may benefit from surgery with curative intent. Ideally, such staging should predict tumor invasion, lymphatic involvement and distant metastases. With the cTNM, we are able to select patients who could benefit from endoscopic resection, radical surgery or less radical treatment in patients with distant metastasis. The initial diagnosis of adenocarcinomas of the ...

ute;choux C Abstract Lung cancer treatment is a heavy workload for radiation oncologist and that field showed many evolutions over the last two decades. The issue about target volume was raised when treatment delivery became more precise with the development of three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy. Initially based upon surgical series, numerous retrospective and prospective studies aimed to evaluate the risk of elective nodal failure of involved-field radiotherapy compared to standard large field elective nodal irradiation. In every setting, locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer, localized non-small cell...
This study demonstrated endoscopy can arrive at pontocerebellar trigone through the STCT and the keyhole supra-tentorium to infra-tentorium endoscope approach is feasible in anatomy and will contribute to excise lesions involving both supra- and infra-tentorial structures.
Authors: Dąbkowski K, Graca-Pakulska K, Zawada I, Ostrowski J, Starzyńska T Abstract Crohn's disease is an inflammatory disorder that can affect the entire gastrointestinal tract but typically involves the ileocecal region. Before endoscopy was widely used, involvement of the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum was thought to be rare. Recent publications demonstrated that not only are upper gastrointestinal lesions common in Crohn's disease (affecting up to 75% of the patients), but they also present characteristic endoscopic findings with potential clinical significance. It was suggested that lesions in the stomach...
