Clinical and Endoscopic Characteristics of Pyogenic Granuloma in the Small Intestine: A Case Series with Literature Review.

Clinical and Endoscopic Characteristics of Pyogenic Granuloma in the Small Intestine: A Case Series with Literature Review. Intern Med. 2019 Oct 15;: Authors: Hayashi Y, Hosoe N, Takabayashi K, Kamiya KJL, Mutaguchi M, Miyanaga R, Hirata K, Fukuhara S, Mikami Y, Sujino T, Masugi Y, Naganuma M, Ogata H, Kanai T Abstract Pyogenic granuloma (PG) generally appears in the skin or oral cavity, but rarely occurs in the small intestine, where it can cause bleeding. To date, only 35 cases of small intestinal PG have been reported in the English literature. We retrospectively collected information from the clinical records of seven cases of small intestinal PG that were managed in our hospital and summarized the characteristics. Further information on the clinical characteristics was obtained from the literature. Capsule endoscopy, useful for identifying the source of hemorrhage in obscure gastrointestinal bleeding, can detect PGs. Treatment can often be accomplished with endoscopic mucosal resection.

AbstractContinuous flow-left ventricular assist devices (CF-LVADs) have become a therapeutic option in the management of advanced heart failure. Several studies show that patients with CF-LVAD are at an increased risk of gastrointestinal bleeding (GIB). However, few reports have presented the characteristics of GIB in Japanese populations. We investigated the incidence, etiology, and outcome of GIB in patients with CF-LVAD. Records of adult patients who received CF-LVADs between October 2008 and January 2017 were reviewed. GIB was defined as detection of bleeding sites by any type of diagnostic imaging. 54 patients receive...

The objective of the study is to analyse the causes and impact of conversion from VATS to thoracotomy identifying any possible pre-operative risk factors and related consequences.MethodsData from patient who underwent VATS lobectomy (VATS-L) for NSCLC at VATS Group participating centres were retrospectively analysed and divided in two groups: patients treated with VATS-L and patients who suffered from conversion. Predictors of conversion were assessed with univariate and multivariable exact logistic regression. Complications were evaluated as dependent variables of conversion in a Cox multivariable logistic regression mode...

ConclusionsA robotic approach might be considered in cases of large D-GISTs amenable to a conservative R0 surgery. This system provides several technical advantages that facilitate otherwise complex resection and reconstruction.10

Portal hypertension is associated with many of the known complications of cirrhosis and has an enormous impact on patients ’ prognosis. Ascites and hepatic encephalopathy represent the most common complications of cirrhosis; both are associated with a significantly worse prognosis, with 50% survival over 1–2 years. Acute variceal bleeding is a life-threatening complication, and despite significant improvements in th e management it remains a leading cause of death in patients with cirrhosis. Advances in variceal bleeding management, including empirical antibiotic use, vasoactive drugs, early endoscopy and thera...

ConclusionIn cases of OGIB, superselective mesenteric angiography (SSMA) with intraoperative methylene blue injection can be used as an adjunct to routine diagnostic modalities to guide surgical interventions for controlling hemorrhage and for limiting the extent of bowel resection.

Adenoid cystic carcinoma is one of the most common minor salivary gland malignancies of the head and neck region. However, adenoid cystic carcinoma of the nasal septum is extremely rare. The authors herein report a case of a septal adenoid cystic carcinoma in a 68-year-old man who complained of nasal bleeding and nasal obstruction for several months. Diagnostic nasal endoscopy revealed a protruding mass arising from the anterosuperior part of the nasal septum. The tumor was removed with a safety margin using the open rhinoplasty approach and primary reconstruction of the surgical defect was performed using septal cartilage...

Conclusions: Ileac ectopic pancreas can be seen in the ileum wall or Meckel diverticulum. The majority of the lesions found in clinical practice present with abdominal pain, gastrointestinal bleeding, and anemia. Lesions in the ileum wall often cause ileoileal intussusception. Computed tomography, capsule endoscopy, and double-balloon enteroscopy are helpful preoperative examinations. Segmental small bowel resection is the treatment of choice.

Endosc Int Open 2019; 07: E1528-E1536 DOI: 10.1055/a-1007-1578 Background and study aims Endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) is a standard method for removing sessile colorectal polyps ≥ 10 mm. Recently, underwater EMR (UEMR) has been introduced as a potential alternative. However, the effectiveness and safety of UEMR compared with conventional EMR is un clear. Patients and methods In this 1:1 propensity score (PS) matched retrospective cohort study, we compared the en bloc resection rates, procedure time, intraprocedural and delayed bleeding rates, and incidence of muscle layer injury. We also perfo...
