INTRODUCTION: Gastric volvulus (GV) is a rare and life threatening condition if not treated promptly or wrongly diagnosed. The main complication of gastric volvulus is foregut obstruction. The extreme rotation can cut off blood supply to the stomach and even distal organs, which can lead to ischemia and necrosis of the affected area. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We report a case of a 41yo female that complained of severe abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting for approximately 3days after eating a large meal...

A hiatal hernia is a condition in which intraabdominal content herniates into the intrathoracic cavity. On rare occasions, a hiatal hernia can lead to cardiorespiratory compromise. We report a case of chest pain followed by cardiac arrest in a patient not known to have hiatal hernia, and without preliminary symptoms. The patient was suspected of having cardiac ischemia; however, angiography did not reveal any abnormalities. Chest tomography revealed a large paraesophageal hernia with compression of the right ventricle causing decreased preload and cardiac output...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is the most preferred technique in morbidly obese patients for weight loss. There is a controversy about the routine preoperative evaluation of the stomach and the routine microscopic examination of all LSG specimens. Our aim is to analyze the results of both preoperative upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and endoscopic biopsies and also the results of histopathological examination of LSG specimens. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The data of patients who underwent LSG from January 2011 to November 2016 were analyzed retrospectively from a prospectively collected database...

Type IV paraesophageal hernia (PEH) is very rare and is characterized by the intrathoracic herniation of the abdominal viscera other than the stomach into the chest. We describe a case of a 90-year-old male patient who presented at our emergency department complaining of epigastric pain that he had experienced over the past few hours and getting progressively worse. On the day after admission, his pain became severe. Chest radiography revealed an intrathoracic intestinal gas bubble; emergency exploratory laparotomy identified a type IV PEH with herniation of only the jejunum with perforated diverticula on mesenteric side through a hiatal defect into mediastinum...

BACKGROUND: Esophageal dysfunction and gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) are common among patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc). Although high-dose proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) typically normalize esophageal acid exposure, the effectiveness of PPI therapy has not been systematically studied in SSc patients. The aim of this study was to characterize reflux in SSc patients on high-dose PPI using esophageal pH-impedance testing. METHODS: In this case-controlled retrospective analysis, 38 patients fulfilling 2013 American College of Rheumatology SSc criteria who underwent esophageal pH-impedance testing on twice-daily PPI between January 2014 and March 2017 at a tertiary referral center were compared with a control-cohort of 38 non-SSc patients matched for PPI formulation and dose, hiatal hernia size, age, and gender...

Background: The assessment of hiatal hernias (HH) is typically done with barium swallow X‑ray, upper endoscopy, and by high-resolution esophageal manometry (HRM). The aim of this study was to assess the clinical utility of these methods in terms of HH detection and their correlation to gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Methods: A retrospective comparative analysis of patients with symptoms of GERD was carried out. The performance of endoscopy and HRM in diagnosing HH was assessed, taking barium swallow X‑ray as a reference...

PURPOSE: Historically, fundoplication has been performed with extensive dissection of the esophageal attachments to the diaphragm. Previously, we conducted a randomized trial demonstrating that minimal esophageal dissection and mobilization reduce the rate of wrap herniation and the need for reoperation. In that study, four esophagocrural (EC) sutures were placed in both groups to help obliterate the space between the esophagus and diaphragmatic crura. In this current study, we evaluate the need for these EC sutures...

BACKGROUND: Robotic camera holders for endoscopic surgery have been available for 20 years but market penetration is low. The current camera holders are controlled by voice, joystick, eyeball tracking, or head movements, and this type of steering has proven to be successful but excessive disturbance of surgical workflow has blocked widespread introduction. The Autolap™ system (MST, Israel) uses a radically different steering concept based on image analysis. This may improve acceptance by smooth, interactive, and fast steering...

REVIEW
Fabrizio Rebecchi, Marco E Allaix, Mario Morino
Robotic technology is an emerging technology that has been developed in order to overcome some limitations of the standard laparoscopic approach, offering a stereoscopic three-dimensional visualization of the surgical field, increased maneuverability of the surgical tools with consequent increased movement accuracy and precision and improved ergonomics. It has been used for the surgical treatment of most benign esophageal disorders. More recently, it has been proposed also for patients with operable esophageal cancer...

BACKGROUND: A subset of patients with large paraesophageal hernias have more than 75% of the stomach herniated above the diaphragm; such cases are referred to as intrathoracic stomach (ITS). Herein, we report longitudinal symptomatic outcomes over a decade after surgical ITS repair in a large patient cohort. METHODS: Patients who underwent surgical treatment for ITS from 01/2004 to 05/2016 were studied. Preoperative and follow-up data were prospectively collected...

Boerhaave's syndrome is a spontaneous rupture of the oesophagus, caused by an increase of intraluminal pressure that is produced in the context of negative intrathoracic pressure. It has a high index of morbimortality (14-40%), which is why it requires early diagnosis and treatment. When a patient presents vomiting, the differential diagnosis should include epigastric pain. Para-esophageal hiatal hernias can be complicated by gastric volvulus. In its turn, this can produce both oesophageal and gastric necrosis requiring early surgical treatment...

The aim of this study was to assess symptomatic recurrence in patients who underwent a laparoscopic repair of large hiatal hernia without an esophageal lengthening procedure. Patients who underwent a laparoscopic repair of a large hiatal hernia from September 2009 to September 2015 by a single surgeon were identified in the retrospective review. The patients were followed up prospectively by the operating surgeon using a structured questionnaire, administered by telephone, to assess the symptoms. Symptomatic recurrence was defined as the requirement for a reoperative procedure for symptomatic recurrent hiatal hernia...

BACKGROUND: Bariatric surgery in Chile has seen an exponential increase in recent years, especially in sleeve gastrectomy. Its use is currently discussed in patients suffering from gastroesophageal reflux disease. Different options have been considered for the management of these patients but up to now laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass seems to be the best option. Sleeve gastrectomy plus concomitant fundoplication or hiatal hernia repair also has been suggested in patients having reflux or small hiatal hernia...
