BACKGROUND:  Obesity is the pandemic disease of this century. Surgery is the only effective treatment but cannot be offered to every patient. Endoscopic sutured gastroplasty is a minimally invasive technique that may potentially fill the gap between surgery and behavioral therapy. In this study, we prospectively investigated the efficacy and safety of a novel suturing device. METHODS:  After a pre-bariatric multidisciplinary work-up, class 1 and 2 obese patients were included...

BACKGROUND: To investigate the efficacy of primary and rescue endoluminal vacuum (EVAC) therapy in the treatment of esophageal perforations and leaks. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective review of a prospectively gathered, Institutional Review Board (IRB) approved database of EVAC therapy patients at our center from July 2013 to September 2016. RESULTS: In all, 13 patients were treated for esophageal perforations or leaks. Etiologies included iatrogenic injury (n = 8), anastomotic leak (n = 2), Boerhaave syndrome (n = 1), and bronchoesophageal fistula (n = 2)...

Endobronchial brachytherapy could be proposed in case of endoluminal tumours either as a palliative or a curative treatment. As a curative treatment, endobronchial brachytherapy could obtain a high local control rate in case of limited disease. In palliative setting, endobronchial brachytherapy improved thoracic symptoms in more than 80% of cases, but it is less efficient than external beam radiation therapy for palliation. It could be also proposed to maintain the airway open after laser therapy. Oesophageal brachytherapy is a valuable option as a palliative treatment, underused at this time...

Dialysis associated steal syndrome (DASS) is a relatively rare but debilitating complication of arteriovenous fistulas. While mild symptoms can be observed, if severe symptoms are left untreated, DASS can result in ulcerations and limb threatening ischemia. High-flow with resultant heart failure is another documented complication following dialysis access procedures. Historically, open surgical procedures have been the mainstay of therapy for both DASS as well as high-flow. These procedures included ligation, open surgical banding, distal revascularization-interval ligation, revascularization using distal inflow, and proximal invasion of arterial inflow...

Objective: Diagnostic colonoscopy is important for diagnosing colorectal diseases, including inflammatory bowel disease and colorectal tumours. Perforation during diagnostic colonoscopy, a rare but serious complication, is a considerable factor before performing the procedure. Immediate endoluminal closure of a perforation could prevent the adverse consequences associated with general anaesthesia and surgery. This study is aimed at assessing the potential effectiveness and safety of endoscopic band ligation (EBL) in closing a colon perforation during endoscopy in a porcine model...

Purpose: Rectal contact X-ray brachytherapy (Papillon radiotherapy) has recently received approval from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence. In particular, it is suitable for elderly patients who are high-risk for a major operation, but it may also be undertaken for patients who wish to avoid a stoma. It is imperative to be able to identify clinical response or tumor regrowth on surveillance magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and sigmoidoscopy. This article aims to help clinicians to interpret MRIs and endoscopic appearances following Papillon radiotherapy...

Background: Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a congenital anomaly with high mortality and morbidity mainly due to pulmonary hypoplasia and hypertension. Temporary fetal tracheal occlusion to promote prenatal lung growth may improve survival. Entrapment of lung fluid stretches the airways, leading to lung growth. Methods: Fetal endoluminal tracheal occlusion (FETO) is performed by percutaneous sono-endoscopic insertion of a balloon developed for interventional radiology...

Background and study aims:  Us of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) has made endoscopic treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) more efficient, with reduction in morbidity and complications. However, some patients persist with symptoms despite medical treatment and some are not compliant with it or cannot afford it for financial reasons, and thus they require non-pharmacological therapeutic options such as surgical fundoplication. Surgery may be effective in the short term, but there is related morbidity and concern about its long-term efficacy...

BACKGROUND: Catheter-related bloodstream infection (CRBSI) is one of the most frequent complications in patients with cancer who have central venous catheters (CVCs) implanted and is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality. Taurolidine is a non-antibiotic agent with broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity, which has been used as a lock solution to prevent CRBSI in some settings. However, little is known about its usefulness in high-risk adult neutropenic patients with cancer...

OBJECTIVE: Endoluminal visualization in virtual and video bronchoscopy lacks information about the surrounding structures, and the traditional 2 D axial, coronal and sagittal CT views can be difficult to interpret. To address this challenge, we previously introduced a novel visualization technique, Anchored to Centerline Curved Surface, for navigated bronchoscopy. The current study compares the ACCuSurf to the standard ACS CT views as planning and guiding tools in a phantom study. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Bronchoscope operators navigated in physical phantom guided by virtual realistic image data constructed by fusion of CT dataset of phantom and anonymized patient CT data...

BACKGROUND: Glutaraldehyde fixed xenogeneic heart valve prosthesis are hindered by calcification and lack of growth potential. The aim of tissue decellularization is to remove tissue antigenicity, avoiding the use of glutaraldehyde and improve valve integration with low inflammation and host cell recolonization. In this preliminary study, we investigated the efficacy of a NaOH-based process for decellularization and biocompatibility improvement of porcine pulmonary heart valves in comparison to a detergent-based process (SDS-SDC0, 5%)...

Introduction: Surgery for cardiac trauma is considered fatal and for wounds of the colon by associated sepsis is normally considered; however, conservative management of many traumatic lesions of different injured organs has progressed over the years. Presentation of the Case: A 65-year-old male patient presented with multiple shotgun wounds on the left upper limb, thorax, and abdomen. On evaluation, he was hemodynamically stable with normal sinus rhythm and normal blood pressure, no dyspnea, or abdominal pain...

Endoluminal functional lumen imaging probe (EndoFLIP) can provide real time information about characteristics of the gastroesophageal junction. We performed retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data on use of EndoFLIP during minimally invasive hiatal hernia repair to tailor the size of the crural closure and size of the fundoplication. We then determined whether it provides good reflux control without significant dysphagia. Forty patients underwent minimally invasive hiatal hernia repair with fundoplication...

OBJECTIVE: Recently, we have demonstrated that acute glucosamine-induced augmentation of protein O-linked β-N-acetylglucosamine (O-GlcNAc) levels inhibits inflammation in isolated vascular smooth muscle cells and neointimal formation in a rat model of carotid injury by interfering with NF-κB (nuclear factor-κB) signaling. However, the specific molecular target for O-GlcNAcylation that is responsible for glucosamine-induced vascular protection remains unclear. In this study, we test the hypothesis that increased A20 (also known as TNFAIP3 [tumor necrosis factor α-induced protein 3]) O-GlcNAcylation is required for glucosamine-mediated inhibition of inflammation and vascular protection...

Primitive aortic-hydatidosis is exceptional. We report the case of a 55-year-old-woman complaining of pain in left lower limb for a week. A CT angiogram showed multi-vesicular and fluid-density-mass intimately contiguous to descending thoracic aorta with endoluminal subtraction image and hydatid cysts in the spleen. Surgical approach was through a thoraco-phreno-lombotomy with right femoro-femoral bypass. Complete resection of destroyed aortic portion was performed, and continuity was restored by aorto-aortic bypass using Dacron prosthesis...

OBJECTIVES: For pediatric patients with laryngotracheal stenosis, the ultimate goal is creation of a safe, functional airway. Unfortunately, wound healing in a hollow structure can complicate repair attempts, leading to restenosis. Herein, we present our experience using skin-grafting techniques in two complex pediatric laryngotracheal stenosis cases, leading to successful decannulation or speech production. METHODS: A chart review was performed examining the evaluation and management of two pediatric patients with laryngotracheal stenosis despite prior reconstructive attempts...
