Jia Liu, Yifan Yang, Chao Zheng, Rui Dong, Shan Zheng
BACKGROUND: Esophageal replacement (ER) surgery has been widely used in long-gap esophageal atresia (LGEA) over the past few decades. The most commonly used surgical approaches in many pediatric surgical centers include colon interposition (CI), gastric pull-up (GPU), jejunal interposition (JI), and gastric tube reconstruction (GTR). However, there is no systematic evidence on which is the optimal conduit for the native esophagus. The aim of this systematic review was to evaluate the short- and long-term outcomes among these 4 replacement approaches in LGEA cases based on current evidence...

BACKGROUND: Esophageal cancer is often marked by aggressive tumor growth and poor prognosis. Patient groups who benefit from perioperative therapy are not yet defined. The tumor microenvironment and circulating factors as possible predictors of response and prognosis gain interest. This study aimed to investigate cytokines in patients' serum and tumor tissue with regard to response and prognosis. RESULTS: Median survival between SCC and AC was not different (published previously)...

BACKGROUND: Spontaneous pneumomediastinum (SPM) is classified as free air in the mediastinum in the absence of any precipitating cause. It is relatively uncommon, and the clinical significance and risk associated with SPM is not well understood and has not been widely documented in the literature. Our goals were to determine the outcomes of patients who presented with SPM and to determine predictors of severe pathology associated with SPM. METHODS: From 2004 through 2013, a retrospective review was conducted of patients who presented with SPM to our institution...

BACKGROUD: Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) with plate-screw construct has been gradually applied for multilevel cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) in recent years. However, long cervical plate was associated with complications including breakage or loosening of plate and screws, trachea-esophageal injury, neurovascular injury, and postoperative dysphagia. To reduce these complications, the zero-profile spacer has been introduced. This meta-analysis was performed to compared the clinical and radiological outcomes of zero-profile spacer versus cage-plate construct for the treatment of multilevel cervical spondylotic myelopathy...

BACKGROUND: Esophageal substitutes need conveyance from the abdomen into the neck for restoration of alimentary continuity. Reports suggest that the use of plastic camera sleeve may prove advantageous in restoring conveyance. This study aims to evaluate the practicability of this approach, specifically, in laparoscopy-assisted surgeries. METHODS: The efficacy of camera sleeve in conduit transposition was prospectively evaluated over 2 years. The following parameters were assessed: success/failure; time taken; blood loss; adequacy of length of the conduit delivered into the neck; conduit orientation; ease of procedure through different routes; conduit damage; complications; and drawbacks...

The modern clinical practice is characterized by intensive introduction of innovative technologies for improving treatment and diagnostic procedures, minimizing their impact on the patient, complications rate and economic reasons. One of the priorities in this area is both diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy. The degree of practical use of innovative endoscopic technologies depends on not only the quality of care, but also their economic reasons. Endoscopic treatment has become the method of choice for gastrointestional bleeding, extraction of foreign bodies, obstructive jaundice, polyps of the gastrointestinal tract, achalasia, esophageal strictures, etc...

For pancreatic solid lesions, ESGE recommends performing endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided sampling as first-line procedure when a pathological diagnosis is required. Alternatively, percutaneous sampling may be considered in metastatic disease.Strong recommendation, moderate quality evidence.In the case of negative or inconclusive results and a high degree of suspicion of malignant disease, ESGE suggests re-evaluating the pathology slides, repeating EUS-guided sampling, or surgery.Weak recommendation, low quality evidence...

Esophageal leaks (EL) and ruptures (ER) are rare conditions associated with a high risk of mortality and morbidity. Historically, EL and ER have been surgically treated, but current treatment options also include conservative management and endoscopy. Over the last decades, interventional endoscopy has evolved as an effective and less invasive alternative to primary surgery in these cases. A variety of techniques are currently available to re-establish the continuity of the digestive tract, prevent or treat infection related to the leak/rupture, prevent further contamination, drain potential collections, and provide nutritional support...

Anatomical variants of the celiac trunk (CT) branches and especially these of hepatic arteries (HAs) are among the most common variants of the arterial tree. The knowledge of the wide variability in hepatic arterial supply is of paramount importance in hepatobiliary, pancreatic, gastric, and esophageal surgery, as well as in liver transplantations. The purpose of this case report is to describe a rare variant discovered during abdominal dissection of a 74-year-old male cadaver of Greek origin, in which the common hepatic artery was absent and its branches, the proper hepatic artery (PHA) and the gastroduodenal artery (GDA) had an aberrant and separate origin...
