A Recent Update on Endoscopic Drainage of Advanced Malignant Hilar Obstruction
Korean J Gastroenterol. 2021 Aug 25;78(2):94-104. doi: 10.4166/kjg.2021.111.ABSTRACTMalignant hilar obstruction (MHO) is considered an aggressive perihilar obstruction caused by cholangiocarcinoma, gallbladder cancer, or metastatic malignancies and has a poor prognosis. Although surgical resection is the only curative treatment method, the majority of patients with MHO do not undergo surgery due to an advanced inoperable state at presentation. Currently, effective biliary drainage provides the necessary palliation for symptomatic improvement. Among the drainage methods, percutaneous access may be preferred, especially for ...

Acute Eosinophilic Appendicitis: A Rare Cause of Lower Gastrointestinal Hemorrhage
Korean J Gastroenterol. 2021 Aug 25;78(2):134-137. doi: 10.4166/kjg.2021.063.ABSTRACTAcute eosinophilic appendicitis (AEA) is defined as eosinophilic infiltration of the muscular layer of the appendix instead of neutrophils. The symptoms of this disease are similar to those of acute suppurative appendicitis. On the other hand, it can present as a lower gastrointestinal hemorrhage. This paper reports a case of an elderly man with an appendiceal hemorrhage due to AEA. The diagnosis was made by colonoscopy during an evaluation of hematochezia. The patient underwent a laparoscopic partial cecectomy. The histology findings reve...

A Recent Update on Endoscopic Drainage of Advanced Malignant Hilar Obstruction
Korean J Gastroenterol. 2021 Aug 25;78(2):94-104. doi: 10.4166/kjg.2021.111.ABSTRACTMalignant hilar obstruction (MHO) is considered an aggressive perihilar obstruction caused by cholangiocarcinoma, gallbladder cancer, or metastatic malignancies and has a poor prognosis. Although surgical resection is the only curative treatment method, the majority of patients with MHO do not undergo surgery due to an advanced inoperable state at presentation. Currently, effective biliary drainage provides the necessary palliation for symptomatic improvement. Among the drainage methods, percutaneous access may be preferred, especially for ...
