REVIEW
Kristen Blaker, Joselin L Anandam
Rectoanal intussusception is an invagination of the rectal wall into the lumen of the rectum. Patients may present with constipation, incomplete evacuation, incontinence, or may be asymptomatic. Defecography has been the gold standard for detection. Magnetic resonance imaging defecography and dynamic anal endosonography are alternatives to conventional defecography. However, both methods are not as sensitive as conventional defecography. Treatment options range from conservative/medical treatment such as biofeedback to surgical procedures such as Delorme, rectopexy, and stapled transanal rectal resection...

New technologies in endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) evaluation have been developed because of the need to improve the EUS and EUS-fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) diagnostic rate. This paper reviews the principle, indications, main literature results, limitations and future expectations for each of the methods presented. Contrast-enhanced harmonic EUS uses a low mechanical index and highlights slow-flow vascularization. This technique is useful for differentiating solid and cystic pancreatic lesions and assessing biliary neoplasms, submucosal neoplasms and lymph nodes...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Contrast-enhanced harmonic endoscopic ultrasound (CEH-EUS) is a novel technology that can identify subepithelial tumors (SETs) by detecting the degree of enhancement, but whether CEH-EUS can predict the malignancy risk of gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) remains unclear. The aim of our study was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of CEH-EUS and its ability to discriminate among SETs and predict the malignancy risk of GISTs. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively included patients with suspected subepithelial lesions who underwent CEH-EUS preoperatively...

BACKGROUND: Biopsy-based diagnosis in patients with paraesophageal intrapulmonary tumors suspected of lung cancer is crucial for adequate treatment planning. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the performance of transesophageal endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) in the diagnosis of intrapulmonary tumors located near or adjacent to the esophagus. METHODS: We performed a systematic review (PROSPERO, CRD42016033737) and searched MEDLINE, Embase, BIOSIS Previews, and Web of Science on September 22, 2016, without date or language restrictions...

REVIEW
Pichamol Jirapinyo, Linda S Lee
Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) has become the mainstay of therapy for pancreatobiliary diseases. While ERCP is safe and highly effective in the general population, the procedure remains challenging or impossible in patients with surgically altered anatomy (SAA). Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) allows transmural access to the bile or pancreatic duct (PD) prior to ductal drainage using ERCP-based techniques. Also known as endosonography-guided cholangiopancreatography (ESCP), the procedure provides multiple advantages over overtube-assisted enteroscopy ERCP or percutaneous or surgical approaches...

BACKGROUND: Rosemont classification for chronic pancreatitis has not been evaluated specifically in non-calcific chronic pancreatitis (NCCP) patients and to this date, it has not been correlated with the gold standard namely histopathology. OBJECTIVE: To assess the correlation of EUS Rosemont criteria for NCCP with histopathology from surgical specimens and evaluate the impact of age, sex, BMI, smoking and alcohol on Rosemont classification. METHODS: Adult patients undergoing TPIAT for NCCP between July 2009 and January 2013 were identified from our institutional database...

BACKGROUND: Guidelines recommend endosonography with fine-needle aspiration for mediastinal nodal staging in non-small-cell lung cancer, but most do not specify whether this should be through endobronchial endoscopy (EBUS), oesophageal endoscopy (EUS), or both. We assessed the added value and diagnostic accuracy of the combined use of EBUS and EUS. METHODS: For this systematic review and random effects meta-analysis, we searched MEDLINE, Embase, BIOSIS Previews, and Web of Science, without language restrictions, for studies published between Jan 1, 2000, and Feb 25, 2016...

A 44-year-old woman with a history of pulmonary embolism and abdominal echinococcosis complained of sudden thoracic pain and shortness of breath. A D-dimer of 77.5 mg/l (reference ≤0.5 mg/l) was found. Chest CT scan revealed obstruction of the right lower and middle lobe pulmonary artery (PA). Anticoagulation therapy was initiated for the presumed diagnosis of recurrent pulmonary embolism. However, due to persistent symptoms of dyspnea, follow-up CT angiography of the chest was performed 3 months later. A persistent PA obstruction was found and the presumed diagnosis of embolism was questioned...

Whether endosonography can replace mediastinoscopy as the initial procedure for mediastinal staging of non-small cell lung cancer remains controversial. Herein, we perform a systematic review of randomized controlled trials and observational studies (both procedures performed in same subjects) comparing the two procedures. Nine studies (960 subjects) were identified. The pooled risk-difference of the sensitivity of endosonography versus mediastinoscopy in observational studies and randomized controlled trials was 0...

AIM: to define optimal treatment of duodenal dystrophy in patients with chronic pancreatitis. MATERIAL AND METHODS: 515 patients with chronic pancreatitis have been treated for the period 2004-2015 in A.V.Vishnevsky Institute of Surgery. Duodenal dystrophy (DD) was diagnosed in 79 (15.3%) of them. The diagnosis was confirmed by sonography, CT, MRI and endosonography. 5 patients are under observation without surgery. 74 patients were operated after previous medical therapy during 39 months on the average...

BACKGROUND: Endosonography has improved our ability to reach thoracic lymph nodes and to diagnose pathologic conditions with nodal involvement and has lowered the threshold for biopsy. The purpose of this study was to avoid unnecessary procedures, it is important to recognize benign adenopathy. Congestive heart failure (CHF) is both common and a common cause of adenopathy. The purpose of this study was to study the association between CHF and adenopathy and to describe the typical presentation of congestive adenopathy...

Neoadjuvant chemotherapy is indicated in patients who can tolerate the side effects of a chemotherapy and with preoperative presentation of one of the following clinical risk situations: bulky disease with a maximal tumor diameter of > 4 cm, suspicious lymph nodes in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT) scan or endosonography, histopathologically confirmed lymph node metastasis, or histopathologically documented risk factors such as G3 and L1V1. A neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by surgery should be performed with cisplatin at a dosage of > 25 mg/m2 per week and an application interval of < 14 days...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS)-guided drainage of walled-off necrosis (WON) may be carried out by placement of multiple plastic stents (MPS) or specially designed fully covered bi-flanged metal stents (BFMS). Comparative data on efficacy of these two stent types for WON drainage are limited. This retrospective study compares outcomes of WON drainage using BFMS and MPS. METHODS: During a 10-year period, 133 patients underwent EUS-guided WON drainage...

REVIEW
Pravachan V C Hegde, Moishe Liberman
Combined endosonographic lymph node biopsy techniques are a minimally invasive alternative to surgical staging in non-small cell lung cancer and may be superior to standard mediastinoscopy and surgical mediastinal staging techniques. Endosonography allows for the biopsy of lymph nodes and metastases unattainable with standard mediastinoscopy. Standard cervical mediastinoscopy is an invasive procedure, which requires general anesthesia and is associated with higher risk, cost, and major complication rates compared with minimally invasive endosonographic biopsy techniques...

Nodal mediastinal staging is a crucial part of the diagnostic workup of patients with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) for planning optimal treatment. Transesophageal endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) and real-time endobronchial ultrasounds transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) are accurate, minimally invasive and safe diagnostic techniques for mediastinal staging. Because of the different accessibility to the mediastinum, they are considered complementary and their combination increases the diagnostic yield as compared with the either alone...
