AIMS: Gastric heterotopia (GH) has been described throughout the gastrointestinal tract. However, the colorectal region is an extremely rare location for it. We describe the clinicopathologic features of GH of the colon, rectum, and anus. METHODS AND RESULTS: We identified 33 cases in 20 males and 13 females (median age 54 years; range, 4 months to 73 years). Sites included the rectum (N=26), anus (N=4), ileocecal junction (N=1), ascending colon (N=1) and descending colon (N=1)...

PURPOSE: Meckel's diverticulum (MD) is a common congenital anomaly caused by failure of involution of the omphalomesenteric duct. Enthusiasm for minimally invasive surgery (MIS) in children has burgeoned as technologies have advanced, but the outcomes of laparoscopic resection in comparison to open laparotomy for MD remain poorly defined. We queried a large national database to compare current practice patterns and clinical outcomes between surgical approaches for MD in the pediatric population...

Developing rapidly from the cecal diverticulum in a 5-week-old embryo, the cecum, which is developed from the caudal limb of the midgut loop, is different from the ascending colon. The aim of this study was to analyze the different clinicopathological and biological characteristics of patients with carcinoma of the cecum and ascending colon. We accessed data for 59,035 patients with adenocarcinomas of the cecum and ascending colon from the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results database to explore the potential associations between the clinicopathological characteristics and overall survival...

This is a description of transhiatal laparoscopic approach for mid-esophageal diverticulum. Traditionally mid-esophageal diverticula are approached by thoracotomy or thoracoscopy, with the laparoscopic technique being reserved for epiphrenic diverticula. A 78-year-old Caucasian female with a secondary dilatative ischemic cardiomyopathy presented with dysphagia, tenderness in the epigastrium and a considerable weight loss. A large mid-esophageal diverticulum was found on barium swallow and confirmed by CT scan...

INTRODUCTION: Thousands of medical applications (apps) are available for mobile devices. Finding accurate, health care provider-centered apps may be time consuming and frustrating for urogynecologists. The objective of this study was to identify and evaluate urogynecology (urogyn) apps using a modified APPLICATIONS scoring system. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Urogyn apps were identified from the Apple iTunes and Google Play Stores using the following 10 MeSH terms: urogynecology, incontinence, prolapse, urinary tract infection, pelvic surgery, fecal incontinence, defecation disorder, voiding disorder, urethral diverticulum, and fistula...

Blunt thoracic aortic injury (TAI) occurs most frequently as a sequelae of high impact deceleration such as high velocity road traffic accidents and falls from height. The burden of mortality and morbidity is high, however advances in pre-hospital care, diagnostic imaging and endovascular therapies have improved outcomes in this group of patients. Emergent treatment depends on accurate, early diagnosis by the radiologist. It is therefore of paramount importance that radiologists are familiar with both the direct (intimal flap, pseudoaneurysm, aortic contour irregularity and contrast extravasation) and indirect (periaortic haematoma) imaging findings of TAI...

The case of an 11-year-old boy with an orange-associated ileus in the setting of a mesodiverticular band from a Meckel's diverticulum is reported herein. Computed tomography showed a small bowel feces sign. He underwent laparoscopic-assisted surgery, and intraoperative findings revealed a Meckel's diverticulum associated with a mesodiverticular band distal to dilated small bowel. After resection of the Meckel's diverticulum and inspection of the intestinal contents proximal to the obstruction, it was apparent that undigested food material was impacted proximal to the obstruction...

OBJECTIVE: Acute jejunoileal diverticulitis is a very rare and potentially serious disease affecting mostly elderly patients. The diagnosis is based on imaging but remains underrecognized. The purpose of this study is to describe the clinical and CT features and the outcomes of patients with acute jejunoileal diverticulitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Cases of acute jejunoileal diverticulitis managed at three French hospitals November 2005 through January 2015 were identified retrospectively...

The high spatial resolution of cardiac computed tomography (CT) and cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) permit the diagnosis of congenital ventricular outpouchings (CVOs), including congenital ventricular diverticula (CVD), congenital ventricular aneurysms (CVA), clefts, and crypts. A unique classification has not been established, and these terms are used interchangeably with confounding terminology. Moreover, their significance is not univocal. A research was performed using PubMed on six subjects: (1) congenital left ventricular outpouchings; (2) congenital ventricular diverticulum; (3) congenital ventricular aneurysm; (4) ventricular clefts; (5) ventricular crypts; and (6) ventricular crevices...

Background and study aims : Endoscopic treatment of Zenker's diverticulum has proven feasible, but electrocautery and CO 2 laser technology carry the risk of collateral thermal injury. Thulium laser septum incision may overcome this limitation. We describe for the first time the use of thulium laser through flexible endoscopy in a small cohort of patients with Zenker diverticulum. Patients and methods : Thulium laser septum division was performed via flexible endoscopy under general anesthesia in consecutive symptomatic patients with primary or recurrent Zenker diverticulum...

Polysplenia syndrome is a rare condition (about 2.5:100,000 live births) wherein a person has two or more spleens with accompanying various thoracic and abdominal organ abnormalities. Polysplenia is usually associated with situs ambiguous, while polysplenia with situs inversus is very rare. Herein, we report a rare case of incidentally found polysplenia syndrome combined with situs inversus in a 59-year-old female who also had an interrupted inferior vena cava (IVC) with azygos continuation, patent ductus arteriosus (PDA), and variations in the aortic arch branches...

INTRODUCTION: Gastric diverticula consist a rare form of diverticula of the gastrointestinal tract. They can be described as an "out-pouching" protrusion from the gastric wall. They are usually found in patients aged between 20 and 60 years old. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We present herein a case of an 82 year- old male patient who was admitted to our hospital with a strangulated inguinal hernia and a gastric diverticulum was incidentally found, as a post- operative radiographic finding...

A 2-year-old neutered male dog with a history of urinary incontinence, recurrent urinary tract infections, and unilateral cryptorchidism was presented with an acute onset of perineal swelling. Urinary contrast studies revealed a urothelial lined structure in the perineum. Surgical resection of 80% to 90% of this structure, suspected to be a congenital urethral diverticulum, was successful.
