INTRODUCTION: In POEMS and CIDP, limb nerve conduction studies (NCS) are limited in identifying demyelination and detecting treatment effects in severely affected patients. Blink R1-latency may improve these assessments. METHODS: POEMS and CIDP patients having undergone NCS and blink reflex were identified. Correlations between R1-latency, limb NCS and neuropathy impairment scores (NIS) were compared. RESULTS: With182 patients (124 POEMS, 58 CIDP) identified, R1-prolongation (>13ms) occurred in 64...

The Ottoman physician-poet Nidai of Ankara (1509 to post-1567) studied medicine in Crimea and served as a court physician in Istanbul during the reign of Sultan Selim II. Nidai marked the classical period of Ottoman medicine particularly with his acclaimed works and translations in Turkish, among which Manafi al-Nas (Benefits of People, 1566) became widely known. The final chapter of Manafi al-Nas also is known independently under the name Vasiyyetname (Last Will), which is a remarkable guide on medical ethics...

INTRODUCTION: Peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) has been performed since 2008 on more than 5,000 patients. It has proven to be highly effective in the treatment of achalasia and has shown promising outcomes for other esophageal motility spastic disorders. METHODS: A literature review of the efficacy of POEM compared to the previous invasive treatments for different esophageal motility disorders was performed. The application in the pediatric and elderly populations and its role as a rescue therapy after other procedures are also outlined...

Ian Wong, Simon Law
Pneumatic dilatation and Heller myotomy have been thoroughly studied as the most viable treatment options for achalasia. The pendulum, however, is shifting to the minimally invasive approach. Since Inoue et al. published the experience of the first 17 cases of peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) in 2010, there have been at least 5,000 cases performed worldwide and the number is increasing exponentially. Experts across the globe have been extending the indications to various esophageal motility disorders, to patients of extremes of age, sigmoidal esophagus and re-operated patients...

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) and peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) are recently developed techniques that have the potential to significantly improve clinical outcomes. However, training opportunities on these techniques remain limited. To address this issue, we developed a novel ex-vivo ESD/POEM training model. Our aim in this paper is to describe the model and provide preliminary evidence of promising feasibility to improve access to ESD/POEM training. METHODS: The model was developed using polyvinyl alcohol hydrogel, which can easily be modified to reproduce the stiffness of the different intestinal layers, namely the mucosa, submucosa, and muscle layer...

Achalasia is a neurodegenerative motility disorder of the esophagus; dysphagia, weight loss, chest pain, and regurgitation are its main symptoms. Surgical myotomy (HM) is considered the gold standard treatment. However, peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) seems to be a safe and effective alternative option. The aim of this study is to compare the safety and efficacy of these techniques. From March 2012 to June 2015, 74 patients with symptomatic primary achalasia underwent myotomy. The two groups were compared in terms of intraoperative and postoperative outcomes and Eckardt score at last follow-up...

OBJECTIVES: Per-oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) is a novel treatment modality for achalasia cardia (AC). The procedure is technically challenging and time consuming. Recently, a new triangle knife (TTJ) has been introduced which is equipped with water jet facility. In this study, we analysed the feasibility, safety and efficacy of POEM in children with new triangle tip knife. METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated the data of children (≤18 years) who underwent POEM using TTJ knife at our institution...

BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS:  The Thulium laser system (TLS) is an emerging interventional tool adopted in many surgical specialties. Its 2.0-μm wavelength allows precise coagulation (0.2 - 0.4 mm in depth) and cutting, limiting the possibilities of collateral injuries. We tested the impact of the TLS for gastric endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) and per oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) ex vivo in pigs. MATERIALS AND METHODS:   Ex vivo porcine stomach and esophagus models underwent 2 POEMs, and 3 ESDs (mean diameter 3...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This article reviews the spectrum of neurologic complications associated with lymphoma, leukemia, and paraproteinemic disorders. While leptomeningeal metastasis is the most common complication of lymphoma and leukemia and peripheral neuropathy is the most common complication of paraproteinemic disorders, clinicians need to be familiar with the diverse neurologic complications of these disorders. RECENT FINDINGS: Lymphomatous nervous system involvement can be difficult to diagnose, especially when it is the presenting symptom...

AIM: To verify the hypothesis that the Ling classification describes the endoscopic progressive process of achalasia and determine the ability of successful peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) to prevent endoscopic progression of achalasia. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the endoscopic findings, symptom duration, and manometric data in patients with achalasia. A total of 359 patients (197 women, 162 men) with a mean age of 42.1 years (range, 12-75 years) were evaluated...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the clinical characteristics of patients with POEMS presenting with polyneuropathy and discuss associated diagnostic challenges. METHOD: Retrospective analysis of 6 patients from 2 tertiary-care institutions. RESULTS: Six patients presented with progressive sensorimotor deficits predominantly or exclusively in the lower extremities and were diagnosed with POEMS syndrome. In 4 patients, a diagnosis of chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculopathy (CIDP) was mistakenly made...

OBJECTIVES: Selective circular myotomy (CM) is recommended in peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) for achalasia, but completeness of myotmoy is the prerequisite for excellent long-term results of conventional surgical myotomy. The aim of our study was to compare the efficacy and safety between peroral endoscopic full-thickness and simple CM for the treatment of severe achalasia. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 123 severe achalasia patients who underwent POEM from August 2011 to May 2013 were included...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the outcome of per oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) and laparoscopic Heller myotomy (LHM) for the treatment of esophageal achalasia. BACKGROUND: Over the last 2 decades, LHM has become the primary form of treatment in many centers. However, since the first description of POEM in 2010, this technique has widely disseminated, despite the absence of long-term results and randomized trials. METHODS: A systematic Medline literature search of articles on LHM and POEM for the treatment of achalasia was performed...

PURPOSE: Peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) is a new efficacious treatment option for achalasia. We propose to define "esophageal remodeling" as the functional restoration of the esophagus that involves decreased lower esophageal sphincter (LES) pressure, recovery of esophageal body peristalsis, and reduction of luminal diameter. The aim of this study was to investigate "esophageal remodeling" after POEM for achalasia. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We analyzed data from a prospectively collected database of POEM subjects, which included preoperative and 2-month postoperative Eckardt symptom scores, and results from esophageal high resolution manometry (HRM) and barium esophagogram (BE)...

Homosexuality and pedophilia in ancient Greece greatly concerned many researchers who were mainly interested in highlighting the social aspect of this phenomenon in ancient Greek society. An important source on the subject was the paintings of a man and his lover in attic black and red figured pottery, up to the end of the 5th century BC. Another main source was the information that derived from the texts of ancient Greek literature, especially poetry. Homosexuality was not only referring to relationships between males, but it was also manifested in lesbian love...
