Topical therapy has become an important tool in the otolaryngologist's armamentarium for refractory chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS). Daily high-volume sinonasal saline irrigation and standard metered-dose topical nasal steroid therapy are supported by the most evidence. Nonstandard topical sinonasal steroid therapies are a potential option for refractory CRS. Current evidence recommends against the use of topical antifungal therapy and topical antibiotic therapy delivered using spray and nebulized techniques in routine cases of CRS...

A 79-year-old man was diagnosed with sudden deafness. He had previously experienced a suspected episode of angina pectoris. At a local hospital, after 500 mg of hydrocortisone and 80 mg adenosine triphosphate (ATP) were administered, he became aware of chest discomfort. An electrocardiogram revealed serious ST-segment depressions. He was diagnosed with a non-ST elevated myocardial infarction (NSTEMI). Emergency coronary angiography revealed triple vessel disease, and the lesion was successfully stented. The mechanisms whereby the stable effort angina pectoris destabilized in this case were thought to include a reduction of the local blood flow because of an ATP product and probable thrombus formation in response to the administered steroids...

Benign esophageal strictures arise from various etiologies and are frequently encountered. Although endoscopic dilation is still the first-line therapy, recurrent strictures do occur in approximately 10% of the cases and remains a challenge to gastroenterologists. Areas covered: A literature search was performed using PubMed and Google Scholar databases for original and review articles on endoscopic treatment of benign esophageal strictures. This review outlines the main available treatment options and its controversies in the management of refractory benign esophageal strictures...

REVIEW
Hsun-Chin Chao
Endoscopic balloon dilatation (EBD) and surgical intervention are two most common and effective treatments for gastric outlet obstruction. Correction of gastric outlet obstruction without the need for surgery is an issue that has been tried to be resolved in these decades; this management has developed with EBD, advanced treatments like local steroid injection, electrocauterization, and stent have been added recently. The most common causes of pediatric gastric outlet obstruction are idiopathic hypertrophic pyloric stenosis, peptic ulcer disease followed by the ingestion of caustic substances, stenosis secondary to surgical anastomosis; antral web, duplication cyst, ectopic pancreas, and other rare conditions...

Objectives: Unexpected systemic inflammatory response with high fever and increase in C-reactive protein (CRP) occurred frequently after endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR). This excessive inflammatory response affects the postoperative course. We evaluated the effects of steroid on the postoperative inflammatory response after EVAR. Methods: Steroid therapy, intravenous infusion of methylprednisolone 1000 mg just after the anesthesia induction, was started since December 2012. After induction of the steroid therapy, 25 patients underwent EVAR with steroid therapy (Group S)...

The growing use of endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) has enabled the highly curative treatment of early esophageal cancer. The circumferential extent of the tumor is reportedly related to the frequency of post-treatment stricture, with postoperative esophageal stricture reported to occur frequently when the post-resection mucosal defect exceeds 75 % of the esophageal luminal circumference. In some clinical cases, locally injected or orally administered steroids aimed at preventing post-treatment stricture fail to prevent re-stricture...

Spontaneous biliary peritonitis is rare in adults. We herein report a case of spontaneous biliary peritonitis. An 84-year-old man was admitted to our hospital for abdominal pain for 5 days. He developed fever, jaundice, and abdominal rigidity. Computed tomography (CT) revealed massive ascites in the omental bursa and around the liver. The ascites obtained by diagnostic paracentesis was dark yellow-green in color, which implied bile leakage. With a diagnosis of bile peritonitis, the patient underwent emergency exploratory laparotomy...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Benign gastrointestinal strictures occur typically in the esophagus and pyloric channel, but can occur anywhere in the GI tract and at anastomotic sites. Such strictures can be treated with dilation, incisional therapy, steroid injection and stents. Our aim was to describe the use of a lumen-apposing metal stent (LAMS) to treat short, benign gastrointestinal strictures. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Retrospective review of consecutive patients who underwent LAMS placement for various benign strictures at 2 tertiary care centers from August 2014 to November 2015...

BACKGROUND: Antiplatelet therapy is required after drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation, but bleeding events occur unexpectedly. We aimed to assess whether bleeding event predictors after 2nd generation DES (2nd DES) implantation differed by time after implantation. METHODS: We studied 1912 consecutive patients who underwent successful 2nd DES implantation (70±10 years, 72% male). Bleeding events were recorded as early (≤1 year) and late (>1 year). Major bleeding events were defined as a composite of type 5, 3, and 2 bleeding in the Bleeding Academic Research Consortium criteria...

A 73-year-old male underwent cardiac catheterization and received two Everolimus drug eluting stents for 80 % stenotic lesions in the left anterior descending and right coronary arteries. He was discharged on aspirin and ticagrelor. He started noticing progressive multiple painful hemorrhagic bullae on the palms of both hands. Biopsy showed lesions consistent with Sweet Syndrome (SS). He was started on steroids and ticagrelor was switched to Clopidogrel with improvement in rash without recurrence. SS is an inflammatory disorder characterized by the abrupt appearance of painful, edematous, and erythematous lesions on the skin...
