AIM: To evaluate the length and location of stenosis in the colon as predictors of technical and clinical outcomes of stent placement in patients presenting with obstructive colorectal cancer. METHODS: A prospective single-center cohort study of patients treated with a colonic stent for malignant obstruction, regardless of stenosis length or location. Stenosis length was assessed globally on the appropriate CT slice as well as by 3D CT reconstruction. We analyzed whether outcomes were different in patients with a right sided-tumor and/or a stenosis >4 cm long...

Platelet-derived growth factor receptor alpha (PDGFRα)+ cells are distributed into distinct morphological groups within the serosal, muscular, and submucosal layers as well as the myenteric and deep muscular plexi. PDGFRα+ cells directly interact with interstitial cells of Cajal (ICC) and smooth muscle cells (SMC) in gastrointestinal smooth muscle tissue. These three cell types, SMC, ICC, and PDGFRα+ cells (SIP cells), form an electrical syncytium, which dynamically regulates gastrointestinal motility. We have previously reported the transcriptomes of SMC and ICC...

Cutaneous metastasis of an internal malignancy is uncommon and is estimated to occur in 0.7-9% of patients with internal cancer including autopsy cases. We would like to report a case of long survival of sigmoid colon adenocarcinoma diagnosed as an instance of facial cutaneous metastasis. A 68-year-old male was admitted to our hospital for a tumor mass on the left side of his cheek. In his past history, acute myocardial infarction had occurred 2 years earlier. He also had chronic renal failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease...

BACKGROUND: Colorectal cancer associated with chronic intestinal schistosomiasis has been linked with the chronic inflammation as a result of schistosomal ova deposition in the submucosal layer of the intestine. Among all species Schistosoma japonicum has been more linked to development of colorectal cancer as compared to Schistosoma mansoni due to absence of population-based studies to support the association. Despite the weak evidence, some cases have been reported associating S. mansoni with development of colorectal cancer...

The Acute Colonic Pseudo-Obstruction (ACPO), also known as Ogilvie's syndrome, is defined by a poor peristaltic activity of the colon that mimics mechanical obstruction in the absence of any mechanical occlusive gut lesion. This case report is the first to be published on ACPO following a robotic- assisted radical hysterectomy. Since robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery has become the next major stage of advancement for a range of operations especially in gynecologic oncology surgery, this report emphasizes the importance of recognizing precipitating factors associated with this syndrome, including minimally invasive surgery...

REVIEW
Eduard Monsó
The introduction of culture-independent techniques for the microbiological analysis of respiratory samples has confirmed that the respiratory system hosts a large number of microorganisms, which include a wide range of bacteria. The regular exposure to tobacco smoke changes the microbiome in healthy smokers, first in the oropharynx, increasing the presence of a restricted number of genera which attain high relative abundance, a pattern that may be considered as dysbiosis. In chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), microbiome analyses of sputum samples have demonstrated an important decline in bacterial diversity, with a change to a restricted flora with an overrepresentation of the Proteobacteria phylum, which include most of the bacteria commonly considered as potentially pathogenic microorganisms, paralleled by a decline in the relative abundance of microorganisms part of the Firmicutes phylum...

Diaphragmatic hernia (DH) is defined as the passage of abdominal contents into the chest cavity through a defect in the diaphragm. DH occurs after chest or abdominal surgery, and is very rare and sporadically reported in the literature. However, the complications are significant and put the patient at great risk. The aim of the present report was to describe a special case with postesophagectomy diaphragmatic hernia (PDH) because of its appearance during chemotherapy and confusion of the symptoms with the side effects of chemotherapy...

The Hartmann procedure - primarily - was introduced for the treatment of cancerous diseases of sigmoid colon and rectum. In the last few years it was performed in cases with complicated inflammation of the left colon, colon cancers with bowel obstruction or perforation, or in the case of insufficiency of the anastomoses, or in urgent operations after traumatics bowel injuries, when making the anastomosis is at very high risk. Later on the restoration of the continuity of the GI tract can be done traditionally (by laparotomy) or laparoscopically...

Type 2 autoimmune pancreatitis (type 2 AIP) develops in isolation or sometimes in association with ulcerative colitis. Its diagnosis requires the histologic confirmation of granulocytic epithelial lesions (GELs) with no diagnostic biomarker currently available. This study aimed to elucidate the tissue expression of cytokines and their diagnostic value in this condition. In quantitative polymerase chain reaction for multiple cytokines using tissue-derived mRNA, the expression level of interleukin (IL)-8 was markedly higher in type 2 AIP than in type 1 AIP (P<0...

Src belongs to a family of cytoplasmic tyrosine kinases that play a key role in tumor initiation and progression. Src activation has been associated with a more aggressive neoplastic phenotype and induces resistance to platinum agents in preclinical models. The aim of our study was to assess the prognostic and/or predictive value of Src activation in stage II-III colon cancer patients. pSrc expression was assessed in paraffin-embedded tumor samples by immunohistochemistry (phospho Y418, ab4816, Abcam). Cases were classified by staining intensity in four categories: no staining (0), weak (1+), moderate (2+) and intense (3+) staining...

RATIONALE: Metastatic involvement of the gastrointestinal tract is an uncommon scenario encountered in the clinical practice. Our case represents a gastric outlet obstruction (GOO) as a consequence of distant Transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) metastasis without any lymph node involvement in association with inflammatory stranding leading to extrinsic duodenal obstruction. PATIENT CONCERNS: We report an unusual case of a 73-year-old male presented with a five-week history of nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain due to the metastatic extension from TCC that had been considered in remission...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Self-expandable metal stents are used increasingly in the treatment of obstructing colorectal cancer (CRC). Although endoscopic colon stenting is widely accepted in palliation, disagreement exists about its role in a curative setting. This study aims to describe long-term survival data in a large patient group treated with colon stenting as a bridge to surgery for CRC. METHODS: This prospective study included 97 patients who presented in a Belgian hospital between 1998 and 2013 with obstructing, although potentially curable, CRC...

Mesenteric defects are often not closed in laparoscopic colectomy. We herein report a case of an internal hernia projecting through a mesenteric defect following laparoscopy-assisted right hemicolectomy. A 74-year-old woman was hospitalized for the surgical treatment of double colon cancer. Preoperative colonoscopy demonstrated the presence of ascending colon and transverse colon cancers. A laparoscopic-assisted right hemicolectomy was performed. The mesenteric defect resulting from the colectomy was not closed...
