BACKGROUND AND AIMS: The time-course for the development of clinically significant hereditary diffuse gastric cancer (HDGC) is unpredictable. Little is known about the progression from pre-clinical, indolent lesions to widely invasive, aggressive phenotypes. Gastro-endoscopy often fails to detect early lesions and risk-reducing/prophylactic total gastrectomy (PTG) is the only curative approach. We present a HDGC family with early-onset disease, in which clinical and histological findings provided insight into the understanding of different HDGC phenotypes...

BACKGROUND: Up to 80% of Crohn`s disease (CD) patients require at least one surgical intervention in their lifetime and up to 70% of these patients develop postoperative endoscopic recurrence within 1 year. The most important predictors of early postoperative recurrence are represented by smoking, prior intestinal surgery, penetrating disease and perianal location. Genetic factors, gut microbiota structure and immunological alterations may be involved in the pathogenesis of postoperative recurrence of CD, although their specific roles have to be determined yet...

BACKGROUND: Endoscopy is increasingly being used for minimal invasiveness and panoramic visualization, with unclear efficacy and safety among spinal intradural lesions. OBJECTIVE: To compare micro-endoscopic and pure-endoscopic surgery for spinal intradural lesions. METHODS: Spinal intradural lesions operated by us using endoscopic/access ports were categorized 'micro-endoscopic' (predominant microscope use), or 'pure-endoscopic' (standalone endoscopy) surgery, and studied with respect to clinico-radiological features, techniques, peri-operative course, histopathology, clinical and radiological outcome at minimum of 3 months...

Carcinosarcoma is a malignant tumor composed of both epithelial and mesenchymal malignant tumor components. A 78-year-old man was transferred to our hospital because of hematemesis and tarry stool. An emergency gastrointestinal endoscopic examination revealed active bleeding from an ulcerative lesion on the posterior wall of the gastric body; endoscopic hemostasis was successfully performed. A gastrointestinal endoscopy performed two months later showed a polypoid lesion at the same place where the ulcer had been...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Real-time differentiation of diminutive polyps (1-5 mm) during endoscopy could replace histopathology analysis. According to guidelines, implementation of optical diagnosis into routine practice would require it to identify rectosigmoid neoplastic lesions with a negative predictive value (NPV) of over 90%, using histologic findings as a reference, and agreement with histology-based surveillance intervals for more than 90% of cases. METHODS: We performed a prospective study with 39 endoscopists accredited to perform colonoscopies on participants with positive results from fecal immunochemical tests in the Bowel Cancer Screening Program at 13 centers in the Netherlands...

The gastrointestinal tract is a common site for the occurrence of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). NHL with gastrointestinal lesions may lead to clinically relevant intestinal complications such as obstruction, perforation, and exsanguination during the course of the disease. Consequently, patients with NHL are often examined by means of upper and lower gastrointestinal endoscopy at the initial visit. There are no clear guidelines regarding which patients should undergo capsule endoscopy (CE) and balloon enteroscopy for detecting small intestinal lesions...

An 81-year-old patient with significant cardiac comorbidities, a history of sigmoid resection 6 years ago, and iliac bypass surgery 19 years ago presented with mild hematochezia for the previous 3 days. While hemodynamically stable at first, he developed massive bleeding during preparation for colonoscopy and underwent a short course of cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Colonoscopy revealed no active bleeding but a protuberance of the colonic wall and a coagulation clot. In ultrasonography immediately after endoscopy, a large aneurysm was diagnosed and diagnosis of an iliaco-colonic fistula was assumed...

The case was a 70s-year-old man. In July 2016, he was admitted to our hospital with a complaint of epigastralgia. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy revealed type 3 advanced gastric cancer in the vestibule, directly infiltrating the pancreas and the left lobe of the liver to form an abscess, and swelling of the aortic lymph node and multiple liver metastases were observed. The cancer was diagnosed as cT4b(liver/pancreas), N2M1(H1P0CYX), cStage IV and diagnosed it as a chemotherapy policy. We initiated SOX plus trastuzumab therapy from August 2016...

A 66-year-old man reporting chest stenosis was examined. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy showed type 2 esophageal cancer. An enhanced CT scan showed several swollen lymph nodes in the lesser curvature of the esophagus. We diagnosed the patient as having advanced esophageal cancer with multiple lymph node metastases(cT3N2M0, Stage III ). After 2 courses of chemotherapy(DCF), a significant reduction was observed in the esophageal tumor; however, the tumor at the lesser curvature was almost unchanged. MIBG scintigraphy showed high uptake in the left adrenal gland...

a-fetoprotein(AFP)-producing gastric cancer is relatively rare and tends to show a poor prognosis because of hepatic and lymph node metastasis. We experienced a case of AFP-producing gastric cancer with synchronous liver metastasis wherein the patient survived for 5 years without recurrence after undergoing surgery and adjuvant chemotherapy. A 39-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital complaining of tarry stool. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy revealed a 40mm type 2 tumor in the greater curvature of the lower gastric body, and abdominal CT indicated a 50mm liver metastasis at the S2 segment...

A 76-year-old man was admitted to our hospital for treatment of gastric tube cancer(cT2N0M0, cStage II A)detected by a screening upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. Seven years previously, he had undergone subtotal esophagectomy for esophageal cancer with gastric pull-up via the retrosternal route. At that time, he experienced cardiopulmonary arrest due to ventric- ular tachycardia. He was in a state of poor nutrition(BMI 15 kg/m2). Therefore, reducing operative stress as much as possible, minimizing complications after surgery, and aiming for a satisfactory postoperative course are all important goals...

A 78-year-old man underwent an upper gastrointestinal endoscopy for evaluation of epigastralgia. Endoscopy revealed a bulky type 3 tumor in the lesser curvature of the upper body. A biopsy showed a poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma with signet ring cell carcinoma. Additionally, abdominal computed tomography(CT)showed bulky lymph node metastases leading to a diagnosis of cT3N2M0, Stage III A carcinoma. Following administration of 2 courses of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC)using S-1/cisplatin(CDDP), CT revealed significant regression of the primary lesion and lymph nodes...

BACKGROUND: Obscure gastrointestinal bleeding (OGIB) is a common but embarrassing problem for gastroenterologists. Most bleeding lesions associated with OGIB are present in the small intestine and sometimes cannot be identified due to the difficulty associated with physical accessibility. Capsule endoscopy (CE) and double-balloon enteroscopy (DBE) have enabled in the process of diagnosing and have evolved to become approaches to treating OGIB. SUMMARY: CE is a minimally invasive procedure and has a high diagnostic yield in patients with OGIB...

Background: Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a chronic disease with a relapsing course of inflammation in the digestive system. Endoscopy and histopathology are the golden standard methods for detection and assessment of IBD. A distinct increase of fecal calprotectin level can be a useful marker for the diagnosis of IBD. The aim of this study was to evaluate the fecal calprotectin level in patients with IBD and without inflammatory diseases of the colon. Methods: Calprotectin levels of patients referred to the Ayatollah Rouhani Hospital of Babol, northern Iran with clinical symptoms of colon disease were evaluated...

BACKGROUND: In order to optimize postoperative therapy in patients with Crohn's disease (CD), it is important to detect endoscopic recurrence preceding clinical recurrence. However, we have little knowledge about how high the rate of residual lesions is and whether these lesions have an influence on postoperative course or not. AIMS: To assess residual lesions in small bowel immediately after surgery. METHODS: Capsule endoscopy (CE) was performed immediately after surgery (< 3 months), and endoscopic activity was assessed using the Lewis score (LS) composed of the highest tertile score (in first, second, and third tertile) and the stenosis score (in whole small intestine)...
