CONCLUSIONS: Awareness of possible repercussions of the celiac trunk stenosis to peripancreatic arteries should be elevated. Restoration of physiological blood flow by removing pathologic anatomy should be performed. Since there is no correlation between the size of a visceral aneurysm and the risk of rupture, having a high postrupture mortality, pancreaticoduodenal artery aneurysms should be treated even if asymptomatic. Surgical treatment remains the mainstay treatment of the Dunbar syndrome complicated by visceral aneurysms. PMID: 31961777 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

OBJECTIVE: Individuals exposed to trauma, especially those who develop posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), are at a higher risk of suffering from chronic pain as well as altered pain perception and modulation. However, the underlying mechanisms of these ...

We report the case of a 33-year-old woman with no history of coronary risk factors or chest pain who experienced intermittent chest pain at rest for several minutes from 2 PM. At 8 AM the next day, chest pain recurred and persisted for about 1 hour. She was transported to our hospital by ambulance, where electrocardiogram showed ST-elevation in the precordial leads, and blood tests showed elevation of cardiac markers. She was diagnosed with ST-elevation myocardial infarction. Because she was a young woman without any risk factors, coronary spastic angina was suspected. Coronary angiography without intracoronary nitrate adm...

This study aimed to assess the perioperative outcomes of adjunctive hypnotherapy undergoing transfemoral TAVI with LACS.Consecutive patients (n = 143) with symptomatic severe aortic stenosis who underwent transfemoral TAVI with LACS only (n = 107) or with LACS and hypnotherapy (n = 36) between January 2015 and April 2016 were retrospectively included in the study. The clinical outcomes were compared between the two groups. The LACS with hypnotherapy group had a significantly shorter length of stay in the intensive care unit (ICU; LACS only versus LACS with hypnotherapy: 4.0 (4.0-5.5) days versus 3.0 (3.0-5.0) days, P

Publication date: Available online 4 November 2019Source: Journal of Visceral SurgeryAuthor(s): A. Faul, A. Laforest, D. FuksSummaryAppendix intussusception is rare, can be responsible of chronic unexplained abdominal pain and is mostly associated with inflammatory changes or endometriosis. A 23-year-old woman with Crohn's disease was diagnosed invaginated appendix by CT-scan and colonoscopy after several acute atypical abdominal pain episodes. These episodes were suspected to be independent of the Crohn's disease and to be attributed to the intussusception itself. A resection combining ligation of the base by colonoscopy ...

To determine the prevalence of appendix pathology (i.e. endometriosis, fibrous obliteration, tumor, acute/chronic inflammation) in patients with chronic pelvic pain. To determine whether preoperative symptoms, age ( ≤ 35 or>35), or intraoperative appendiceal appearance were associated with appendix pathology.

Purpose of review The risk–benefit ratio of concurrent appendectomy at the time of gynecologic surgery has long been debated and remains controversial. However, emerging data on the appendix's role in chronic pain syndromes point to a previously unrecognized link between gynecologic disorders and appendicular pathology. In this article, we review the indications for appendectomy at the time of laparoscopic gynecologic surgery for the treatment of endometriosis and chronic pelvic pain. Recent findings The incidence of appendiceal endometriosis is highly variable depending on the patient population selected. Altho...

Endometriosis is a chronic and incurable condition associated with debilitating pain and subfertility that affects approximately 176 million women worldwide.1,2 It is a complex, and heterogeneous disorder of unknown aetiology defined by the presence of endometrial-like tissue (lesions) outside the uterus. Despite an estimated prevalence in women that mirrors that of diabetes, Crohn's disease, and rheumatoid arthritis, the full socioeconomic impact of endometriosis is considerably underestimated.

AbstractWhile endometriosis typically affects the ovaries, deep infiltrating endometriosis can affect the gastrointestinal tract, urinary tract, and deep pelvis, awareness of which is important for radiologists. Symptoms are nonspecific and can range from chronic abdominal and deep pelvic pain to nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, hematuria, and rectal bleeding. Ultrasound and computed tomography may show nonspecific soft-tissue density masses causing bowel obstruction and hydronephrosis. This constellation of presenting symptoms and imaging evidence is easily mistaken for other pathologies including infectious gast...
