Evolving Treatment of Frontal Sinus Cholesteatoma: A Case Report.

DISCUSSION: The pathogenesis of frontal sinus cholesteatoma varies based on its cause (congenital vs acquired). Clinical diagnosis remains challenging but is aided by nasal endoscopy, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging. Historically, FSC has been managed by total extirpation through open approaches, which can entail substantial morbidity. With sophisticated endoscopic sinus instrumentation and image guidance, FSC can be successfully treated via an endoscopic approach. Serial débridements and washouts in an outpatient setting may adequately manage the residual disease in the postoperative period. PMID: 32097113 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion This first-in-man study shows that electrochemotherapy for colorectal tumors using the endoscopic electrode device can induce local tumor response and is safe also for fragile elderly patients with comorbidities.

A 59-year-old asymptomatic man underwent ultrasonography, which revealed gallstones and thickened gallbladder wall. Abdominal computed tomography (CT) showed a slightly swollen bilocular gallbladder and a soft tissue mass in the fundus site. Segmental adenomyomatosis (ADM) was suspected because numerous fundic cystic lesions were seen on magnetic resonance imaging. Endoscopic ultrasonography revealed numerous Rokitansky-Aschoff sinuses (RAS) and a papillary soft tissue shadow surrounded with irregular and remarkably thickened fundic gallbladder wall. Fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose-positron emission tomography/CT demonstrated sli...

Rationale: Esophageal foreign body is a commonly seen in China. However, pseudoaneurysm of the aortic arch caused by ingestion of fish bones is a rare, life-threatening condition. Patient concerns: A 71-year-old male was admitted to the Ear, Nose, and Throat department with a 4-day history of chest pain after eating fish. Diagnoses: After taking out the fish bone by rigid endoscopy, magnetic resonance imaging and computerized tomography angiography (CTA) scans revealed the presence of an aortic arch pseudoaneurysm, which was likely caused by the fish bone. Interventions: A successful endovascular graft exclusion...

Authors: Wright EK, Ding NS, Niewiadomski O Abstract Australia has one of the highest incidence rates of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in the world. Early diagnosis and treatment for IBD is critical. For Crohn disease, in particular, this may change the natural history of disease and reduce disability. Faecal calprotectin is a sensitive test that can be used by primary care physicians to assist in determining which patients with gastrointestinal symptoms may have IBD. This allows for prompt identification of patients who may benefit from endoscopy. Regular re-evaluation of disease status with strategies that can...

Authors: Seo HS, Jung YJ, Park CH, Song KY, Jung ES Abstract Immunoglobulin G4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is an immune-mediated fibro-inflammatory disorder characterized by specific pathological findings and elevated serum IgG4 level. IgG4-RD in the stomach is rare, and occasionally diagnosed as gastric subepithelial tumor (SET) by endoscopy or computed tomography scan. Two female patients in the age group of 40-50 years were diagnosed with 4 cm sized gastric SET. One underwent laparoscopic gastric wedge resection. Another one had a history of subtotal gastrectomy for early gastric cancer and idiopathic thrombocytop...

A 65-year-old woman presented with multiple episodes of melena and a 5 g/mL decrease in hemoglobin level over a 6-month period. Three esophagogastroduodenoscopies and 2 colonoscopies were unremarkable. A capsule showed blood in the duodenum without an obvious source. Repeat upper endoscopy showed blood from the major papilla. Further studies were obtained including computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging/magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography, endoscopic ultrasound, bleeding scan, and an angiography —all were unremarkable.
