S Beckert, A Königsrainer
There is an increasing role of surgery even in metastatic tumor stages. In colorectal cancer patients with limited metastases, complete cytoreduction is able to offer long-term survival in synchronic as well as metachronic situations. In tumors of the upper gastrointestinal tract (UGIT), however, the impact of surgery in metastatic disease remains to be clarified. Even though several retrospective studies suggest prolonged survival, surgery is not recommended by the current German S3 guidelines for tumors of the UGIT...

BACKGROUND: Congenital pyloric atresia (CPA) is a rare anomaly with an incidence of 1 in 100,000 live births. Depending on the type of anomaly patients can either present in the neonatal period or later in life with subtle nonspecific signs and symptoms. We present our institute's experience in handling these cases over the last decade and highlight lessons learnt. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed records of patients diagnosed with CPA and managed at our centre between Jan 2006 to June 2016...

Upper lip scars are at risk of hypertrophy. Our center therefore uses microporous tape and silicone sheeting for postoperative scar care following cleft lip repair. However, some babies have previously ingested their silicone sheeting, which has the potential for respiratory compromise or gastrointestinal obstruction. Self-dry silicone gel is reportedly also effective for preventing hypertrophic scars. Hence, we sought to test whether silicone gel, which cannot be ingested whole, might be non-inferior to silicone sheeting for controlling against upper lip scar hypertrophy...

BACKGROUND: Using synthetic mesh to buttress the crural repair during laparoscopic hiatal hernia repair may be associated with dysphagia and esophageal erosions, while a biologic mesh is expensive and does not decrease long-term recurrence rates. This study documents outcomes of laparoscopic paraesophageal hernia repairs using the falciform ligament to reinforce the crural repair. METHODS: This is a prospective study of laparoscopic paraesophageal hernia repairs with a falciform ligament buttress...

BACKGROUND: 10% of patients who undergo a cholecystectomy go on to develop post-cholecystectomy syndrome (PCS). The majority of these patients may suffer from extra-biliary or unrelated organic disorders that may have been present before cholecystectomy. The numerous aetiological causes of PCS result in a wide spectrum of management options, each with varying success in abating symptoms. This systematic review aims to provide a summary of the causative aetiologies of post cholecystectomy syndrome, their incidences and efficacy of available management options...

The current study presents the case of a 72-year-old woman with a rapidly enlarged liver metastasis from esophagogastric junction (EGJ) cancer, accompanied by progressive leukocytosis (47,680/µl) and elevated serum granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF; 779 pg/ml). The patient underwent right hemihepatectomy 26 months after a total gastrectomy. On the seventh post-operative day the patient's leukocyte count and serum G-CSF level decreased to 4,280/µl and ≤19.5 pg/ml, respectively. Histologically, the lesion was a well to moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma similar to the primary lesion...

Hemophilia is a hereditary disease with impaired blood coagulation due to a genetic deficiency of blood coagulation factors. The development of inhibitors further complicates the course of the disease and management. The case is here reported of a haemophilia patient who presented with coexisting development of high titer inhibitor with Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor (GIST) diagnosis and was admitted with upper gastrointestinal system bleeding. The patient had no prior history of inhibitor presence. During all procedures including surgery, excellent hemostasis was achieved with rFVIIa treatment and no hemorrhagic complication was observed...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Anti-thrombotic agents are risk factors for upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB). However, few studies have evaluated their effects on patient outcomes. We assessed the effects of anti-thrombotic agents on outcomes of patients with high-risk UGIB. METHODS: We performed a prospective study of 619 patients with acute UGIB (defined by hematemesis, coffee-ground vomit or melena) who required intervention and underwent endoscopy at 8 centers in North America, Asia, and Europe, from March 2014 through March 2015...

INTRODUCTION: Worldwide, one of the most commonly performed bariatric surgeries is the laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGP). Access to the bypassed stomach in patients who have undergone this procedure, for evaluation and/or management in different clinical situations remains a challenge for the physician. In order to facilitate the entrance to the gastric remnant, a silastic marker is left in place during the Fobi-Pouch operation, a modified laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery technique...

The dysregulation of inflammatory response to surgical injury affects outcomes. Alarmins, the earliest bioactive substances from damaged cells, play a crucial role in initiating the inflammation. We analyzed serum levels of alarmins (S100A8, S100A12, high mobility group box, and heat shock protein 70) after major abdominal surgery (MAS) in surgical (S) (n = 82) and nonsurgical (NS) groups (n = 35). The main objective was determining a role of selected alarmins in host response to MAS. The secondary objectives were (i) evaluation of the relationship among alarmins and selected biomarkers (C-reactive protein, interleukin-6), (ii) influence of the place of gastrointestinal resection, and (iii) role of alarmins in MAS for cancer...

BACKGROUND: Recent evidence suggests that resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta (REBOA) is an effective life-saving intervention in patients with severe torso trauma. However, the deployment of REBOA in patients with isolated penetrating intrathoracic injuries remains controversial. We propose that a median sternotomy be performed in conjunction with REBOA as a feasible and effective means of hemorrhage control in patients suffering from penetrating chest trauma who present hemodynamically unstable...

INTRODUCTION: Synchronous colon and gastric cancer is a rare clinical entity. In the present case, it is aimed to show that in a patient with synchronous colon and gastric cancer, laparoscopic resection can be safely performed and both specimens can be delivered through a natural orifice. In our knowledge, this is the first example showing the delivery of the gastric resection specimen through the anus in a human being. CASE REPORT: Sixty-six years old male patient with an upper gastrointestinal bleeding and obstruction symptoms was admitted to our department and the evaluation revealed an advanced stage gastric and a synchronous colon cancer...

A fistula between the renal pelvis and duodenum (pyeloduodenal fistula) is very rare. It can occur spontaneously or after trauma to one of these organs. A spontaneous pyeloduodenal fistula is usually caused by chronic inflammation, including reactions to foreign bodies, nephrolithiasis, benign and malignant neoplasms, as well as pyogenic infections. The main treatment to date has been surgery. We encountered one case of pyeloduodenal fistula found during an evaluation for abdominal discomfort in a 39-year-old female...

ᅟ: Obesity is a global epidemic and will soon become the number one priority in healthcare management. Bariatric surgery causes a significant improvement in obesity and its related complications. Pre-operative esophago-gastro-duodenoscopy (EGD) is done by several bariatric surgical teams across the world but is still not mandatory. AIM: To study the percentage of symptomatic and asymptomatic pathological EGD findings in obese patients undergoing bariatric surgery and to analyze whether these findings influence the eventual choice of bariatric surgery...
