Case Report about the Management of a late Gastro-Gastric Fistula after Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass, with the finding of an unexpected foreign body

ConclusionThe surgical option remains the standard of treatment and can be performed safely in Gastro-Gastric Fistula Type II. Orogastric tube accidental complications should be identified preferably perioperatively and measures of prevention should be implied to avoid such events.

Conclusions: Preoperative blood transfusion is associated with severe postoperative complications following colectomy in moderate and severe anemic cancer patients. Further studies are needed to establish an optimal preoperative transfusional cutoff value to optimize postoperative outcomes and balance clinical costs.

CONCLUSION: This study reviewed SCT outcomes for pediatric AA with changes of transplant strategies over the last 25 years. The FFS and GFFS were higher in Flu-group than in Cy-group, especially in matched related transplantation. Graft failure including donor-type aplasia remains troublesome even with Flu-based conditioning. Further refinement of transplant strategies to ensure better quality-of-life should be pursued.

Authors: Yue Ying C, Jun S, Yu Fan W, Hua RZ Abstract Introduction: Anemia is a common extraintestinal complication of Crohn's disease (CD) mainly caused by iron deficiency and, affects the quality of life of CD patients. In recent years, the etiology and pathology of iron-deficiency anemia (IDA) and anemia of chronic diseases have been elucidated. However, common biochemical parameters of iron status for the assessment of patients with anemia and CD are insufficient. Thus, novel iron indices are required for accurate assessment in CD patients with IDA. Oral iron supplementation as IDA treatment is common and assoc...

ConclusionNonagenarians differ from patients aged 70 –79 and 80–89 years in baseline characteristics, complication and mortality rates. Differences increased gradually with age. The results of this study can be used, in combination with the Almelo Hip Fracture Score, to deliver efficiently targeted orthogeriatric treatment to the right patient gr oup.

Authors: Rathi V, Ish P, Singh G, Tiwari M, Goel N, Gaur SN Abstract Non-anemic iron deficiency has been studied in heart failure, but studies are lacking in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The potential clinical implications of association of iron deficiency with the severity of COPD warrant research in this direction. This was an observational, cross-sectional study on patients with COPD to compare disease severity, functional status and quality of life in non-anemic patients with COPD between two groups - iron deficient and non-iron deficient. Stable non-anemic COPD with no cause of bleeding were e...
