INTRODUCTION: Simultaneous occurrence of Morgagni and the Para-esophageal hernia is a rare clinical condition with eight case reports in the English-language literature and only four managed laparoscopically. We describe a case of a Septuagenarian patient with Morgagni and concomitant Para-esophageal hernia treated laparoscopically. PRESENTATION OF A CASE: A 71-year-old male patient, presented with a one-month history of regurgitation of acid, retrosternal burning and vomiting after eating...

INTRODUCTION: Endoscopic therapy remains the cornerstone of hemostasis for gastrointestinal bleeding. In situations where hemostasis cannot be achieved via endoscopic or radiological methods, surgery is necessary. Traditional open surgery for bleeding gastric ulcers can be very morbid and unsuitable especially in hemodynamically unstable patients in extremis. We describe a minimally invasive, transgastric approach for underrunning and closure of Cameron ulcers. METHODS: Our patient is a 75-year-old Chinese lady, who presented to the emergency department with fresh melena...

BACKGROUND A Bochdalek hernia (BH) is a rare congenital condition consisting of a posterolateral defect in the diaphragm. A para-esophageal hernia (PEH) is a rare variant of hiatus hernia. BH and PEH may present with gastric volvulus or incarceration, requiring emergency treatment. Minimally invasive surgery is the preferred treatment, particularly for elderly patients and patients with comorbidities. The occurrence of BH with concomitant PEH is a very rare event. We describe a case of an octogenarian patient with BH and concomitant PEH treated laparoscopically...

Boerhaave's syndrome is a spontaneous rupture of the oesophagus, caused by an increase of intraluminal pressure that is produced in the context of negative intrathoracic pressure. It has a high index of morbimortality (14-40%), which is why it requires early diagnosis and treatment. When a patient presents vomiting, the differential diagnosis should include epigastric pain. Para-esophageal hiatal hernias can be complicated by gastric volvulus. In its turn, this can produce both oesophageal and gastric necrosis requiring early surgical treatment...

INTRODUCTION: Gastric volvulus is an uncommon, but severe pathology requiring early diagnosis and urgent treatment. Its atypical symptoms and rarity make it difficult to diagnose, possibly leading to delayed treatment and fatal complications. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We present a case of a 73-year-old patient with Parkinson's disease with complaints of severe epigastric pain, emesis and an increased lipase. RESULTS: Diagnosis of an organo-axial gastric volvulus was made...

Background: Surgical treatment of GERD by Nissen fundoplication is effective and safe, providing good results in the control of the disease. However, some authors have questioned the efficacy of this procedure and few studies on the long-term outcomes are available in the literature, especially in Brazil. Aim: To evaluate patients operated for gastro-esophageal reflux disease, for at least 10 years, by Nissen fundoplication. Methods: Thirty-two patients were interviewed and underwent upper digestive endoscopy, esophageal manometry, 24 h pH monitoring and barium esophagogram, before and after Nissen fundoplication...

Laparoscopic treatment of benign esophageal conditions is technically complex with several inherent limitations. Robotic-assisted surgery provides technical improvement and helps to overcome some of these limitations. We therefore report a single surgeon's experience in management of benign esophageal diseases by robotic-assisted surgery. Over a period of 8 consecutive years, a retrospective chart review was performed of 105 patients who underwent robotic-assisted surgery for benign esophageal diseases by a single surgeon...

OBJECTIVE: (i) To establish at a national level clinical outcomes from patients presenting with acute para-esophageal hernia (PEH); and (ii) to determine if a hospital volume-outcome relationship exists for the management of acute PEH. BACKGROUND: Currently, no clear guidelines exist regarding the management of acute PEH, and practice patterns are based upon relatively small case series. METHODS: Patients admitted as an emergency for the treatment of acute PEH between 1997 and 2012 were included from the Hospital Episode Statistics database...

Para-esophageal hernias are relatively rare and typically occur in elderly patients. The various presenting symptoms are non-specific and often occur in combination. These include symptoms of gastro-esophageal reflux (GERD) in 26 to 70% of cases, microcytic anemia in 17 to 47%, and respiratory symptoms in 9 to 59%. Respiratory symptoms are not completely resolved by surgical intervention. Acute complications such as gastric volvulus with incarceration or strangulation are rare (estimated incidence of 1.2% per patient per year) but gastric ischemia leading to perforation is the main cause of mortality...

INTRODUCTION: Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) in adults is a relatively rare condition being asymptomatic in the majority of cases. Symptomatic CDH should prompt surgical management because they may lead to intestinal obstruction or severe pulmonary disease. This is the first reported case of a symptomatic CDH complicated with sliding hiatal hernia (SHH). PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 65 years old women with reflux and dysphagia was complaining of postprandial paroxysmal dyspnea and epigastric pain radiating to her back...

INTRODUCTION: There has been an increase in the number of patients seeking treatment after an anti-reflux surgical procedure. The objective of this study is to describe high-resolution manometry (HRM) topography as it relates to the post-fundoplication anatomy. METHODS: Retrospective review of a prospectively maintained database was conducted to identify patients who underwent esophagogastroduodenoscopy and HRM at Creighton University Medical Center (CUMC) between November 2008 and October 2010, for symptoms after a previous fundoplication...

OBJECTIVES: To compare the incidence of post-operative hiatal herniation after open and minimally invasive Ivor Lewis McKeown esophagectomy for malignant disease. METHODS: All patients undergoing esophageal resection were entered into a prospectively maintained database. After Institutional Review Board approval, the database was queried to identify patients who underwent minimally invasive (MIE) and open transthoracic (TTE) Ivor Lewis McKeown esophagectomy (transthoracic three-hole) with gastric pull-up for malignant disease...

OBJECTIVE: Para esophageal hiatal hernia is a rare childhood condition and reported series have had scant number of children which makes diagnosis a challenge. The authors sought to study the presentation and the outcome of treatment of congenital para esophageal hernias (CPEH) over a period of 10 years from a single tertiary care hospital in Saudi Arabia. METHODS: The records of 9 patients presenting between 1997 and 2007, were retrospectively analyzed for demographics, presenting features, referral diagnoses, investigations, management including operative procedures, their outcome and follow-up...

Patients who have undergone bariatric surgery and present with upper abdominal symptoms pose a diagnostic and management challenge. This is a case report of a 53-year-old lady who presented a number of years after vertical banded gastroplasty with upper abdominal pain and weight gain. Radiological investigation demonstrated a large para-esophageal hernia including the stapled area of the stomach, but with a staple-line dehiscence. She successfully underwent repair of the hiatus hernia and conversion to a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass resulting in resolution of the abdominal pain and weight loss...

Congenital asplenia (Ivemark syndrome) is usually associated with major cardiac malformations, which determine the clinical presentation and often result in death before 6 months of age. We report the unusual case of a 77 year-old patient with a congenital asplenia that was incidentally detected during a laparotomy for mesenteric vein thrombosis. The other abnormal findings in the abdomen were a para-esophageal hiatal hernia and left kidney hypotrophy. A segmental resection of the mid-jejunum was performed, with uneventful recovery...

Para-esophageal herniation is a recognized complication of the Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. While chronic herniation is well described, acute symptomatic herniation is far less common. We describe a case of acute, life-threatening para-esophageal herniation of the abdominal viscera in a young woman with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. Careful anaesthetic assessment and surgical management resulted in a successful clinical outcome.
