There is increased evidence that end-stage renal disease patients, especially the hemodialyzed population, may present various unexpected forms of complications, contributing to a poor prognosis. Furthermore, neuroendocrine tumors, rarely encountered in daily practice, present in dialyzed individuals can significantly exacerbate the inflammatory condition with negative impact on patients' quality of life. We present an unusual case of uterus neuroendocrine tumor with multiple metastases in a 49-year-old female hemodialyzed patient with a history of alcoholic liver cirrhosis and uterus fibromatous...

BACKGROUND: Angiodysplasia (AD) of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract is a rare cause of surgical GI bleeding. It frequently poses difficult problems in diagnosis and treatment. The purpose of this study is to find answers to these problems for a better management of the AD patients. MATERIALS: From 1982 to 2006 a total of 75 patients suffering of AD of the GI tract were operated in our center. They represent about 3.6% of total patients operated for GI bleeding in the same period...

OBJECTIVES: Inguinal metastases are one of the major determinants of mortality in patients with penile cancer. In high risk patients, while prophylatic inguinal lymphadenectomy may offer survival advantages, it still carries a relatively high morbidity. We describe in this paper the first report of the Video Endoscopic Inguinal Lymphadenectomy (VEIL) in the clinical practice, a technique which aims at reducing the morbidity of the procedure without compromising the cancer control or reducing the template of the dissection...

The laparoscopic fundoplication became the gold standard of the laparoscopic antireflux surgery (LARS). Our aim is to indicate the evolution of the learning curve as well as its consequences on the patient's outcome. We studied the gastro-esophageal reflux (GER) cases treated laparoscopically in Colţea University Hospital throughout 6 years. We gathered a group of 40 patients with an average age of 54, 57 years and a sex ratio F:M = 1.67. The patients had either a simple GER disease, small and medium hiatal hernias (21 cases) or giant hiatal hernias (GHH--19 cases)...

Complicated cardiologic patients with brain ischemia and heart failure need long term enteral nutrition. Long term nasoenteral tube feeding may cause complications that could be avoided with percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy. The aim of this study was to evaluate the indications for percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy and its main complications. Twelve patients were submitted to percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (eight male) with main age of 62.42 +/- 22.10 years old. Brain ischemia was the main indication of percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy and occurred after 35...

We report our experience on 24 UPJ obstruction, that underwent endopyelotomy. The follow-up on these patients range from 12 to 72 months. The success rate, based on patient symptomatology as well as urographical and scintigraphical parameters, was 83.3%. An adequate selection of cases, with grade of hydronephrosis and crossing vessels pre-operatorial detection, would possibly show a further improvement of success rate. The antegrade transpelvic endopyelotomy adopted in the most recent cases, allows the identification of crossing vessels and the performance of a safer endopyelotomy...

The endoscope utilized by otolaryngologists for the past 10 yr has a place in the armamentarium of the endodontist as well. It provides improved visualization of root apicies, especially those not in the line of direct vision. It can illuminate and identify roots in the sinus if such treatment becomes necessary. By allowing a magnified view of the root-end preparation before and after placement of the filling material, any fractures or extraneous material can be identified. This instrument is quite small and readily transportable from one operatory to another...

A retrospective analysis of 3052 gastroscopies made by our Digestive Endoscopy Department from 1974 to 1979 was carried out. 14 Early Gastric Cancers out of a total of 157 gastric carcinomas were diagnosed (8.9%), with an EGC: Gastroscopies ratio = 1:218. From the macroscopic point of view 8 were found to belong to type III, 5 to type II, and 1 to type I. The main location was the lesser curvature (angulus-antrum). With regard to the degree of infiltration, 2 were found to belong to stage 0a, 8 to stage 0b, and 5 to stage I...

Surgical endoscopy combined with electro-hydraulic lithotripsy was done on 17 patients selected for complex multiple bilio-pancreatic lithiasis. In the biliary tract (7 patients), per operatory lithotripsy was performed on 3 patients (impacted main duct stones n = 2, impacted left hepatic stones n = 1); it was done through a T-tube in 1 young patient with an impacted stone in the ampulla and percutaneously in 3 patients (1 gall bladder and 2 intra hepatic lithiasis, one of them with biliary cirrhosis and portal hypertension)...
