Inflammatory fibroid polyps (IFP) are an extremely rare entity that arise within the submucosa of the gastrointestinal tract, and represent less than 0.1% of all gastric polyps. They are most commonly localized to the gastric antrum, small intestines and recto-sigmoid colon. IFPs are most commonly found incidentally upon endoscopic evaluation in the absence of symptoms. Presenting symptoms depend on the location of the tumor, although polyps located in the stomach most commonly present with epigastric pain and early satiety...

BACKGROUND: Surgical gastrojejunal anastomosis (GJJ) is considered the standard palliative option for gastric outlet obstruction. The use of endoscopic GJJ has generated a lot of attention and has enlarged the horizon for patients with open surgery contraindications. Our study aimed to assess and compare 2 purely endoscopic GJJ approaches using a lumen-apposing hot tip double-flanged metal stent, with focus on technical and clinical success rates on experimental animals. METHODS: Two endoscopic GJJ techniques using a double-flanged self-expandable metal stent were compared on 8 pigs...

OBJECTIVE: We present the case of a 57-year-old man with a history of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and colonic polyps who presented with an upper gastrointestinal obstruction based on massive stomach polyposis in the pouch. METHODS: Two months prior to this acute admission, he had undergone resection of the gastric remnant due to massive refractory intraluminal bleeding from a polypoid mass. Ten years earlier, right colectomy was performed due to hypertrophic polyposis unsuitable for endoscopic polypectomy...

BACKGROUND: Bariatric surgery is a continuously evolving field. Laparoscopic greater curvature plication is a new investigational procedure used to treat patients with morbid obesity. The demand for this operation from the obese patients is also rising. The problem is that during gastric plication the exact dimensions and volume of the pouch are not known so frequently it is too large or too tight thus compromising the results. The aim of the study was to identify the parameters that can improve the outcomes after this procedure...

The laparoscopically administrated adjustable gastric banding used to be widely practiced as treatment of extreme obesity. As lots of complaints and complications arose sooner or later after this procedure, they had to be removed quite often. Half year after such a removal we observed a 37-year-old female patient with complete gastric outlet obstruction. The patient was operated and cured completely. The cause of gastric obstruction was an internal incarceration of the pyloric region between the plication made at the time of the ring removal and the gastric body...

Gastroduodenal stenting using self-expandable metallic stents (SEMSs) represents a viable endoscopic option for palliative treatment of gastric outlet obstruction (GOO), less invasive relative to surgical and/or endoscopic ultrasound-guided gastroenterostomy (EUS-GE). Nevertheless, high rates of stent dysfunction remain a significant Achilles' heel of the procedure. Endoscopic removal of a distally migrated gastroduodenal stent remains challenging with single-channel techniques, calling for individually tailored solutions vis-à-vis the inevitable upstream stricture...

INTRODUCTION: Spilled gallstones from a laparoscopic cholecystectomy can be a source of significant morbidity, most commonly causing abscesses and fistulae. Preventative measures for loss, careful removal during the initial surgery, and good documentation of any concern for remaining intraperitoneal stones needs to be performed with the initial surgery. CASE REPORT: An 80-year-old male with a history of complicated biliary disease resulting in a cholecystectomy presented to general surgery clinic with increasing symptoms of gastric outlet obstruction...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: Whether gastrojejunostomy (GJJ) or duodenal stent (DS) placement is preferable for treatment of gastric outlet obstruction (GOO) in patients with unresectable pancreatic cancer is unclear. We compared the usefulness of GJJ with that of DS placement in these patients. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 66 consecutive patients with unresectable pancreatic cancer who underwent GJJ or DS placement for symptomatic GOO. RESULTS: We analyzed 30 patients who underwent GJJ and 23 who underwent DS placement...

Patients with advanced-stage pancreatic cancer are typically burdened by many symptoms that impair functioning and worsen quality of life. We report an exceptional case of a 73-year-old woman with T4N1M0 adenocarcinoma of the uncinate process of the pancreas who developed significant gastric outlet obstruction - an uncommon yet potentially life-threatening complication of disease progression. She developed progressive abdominal pain and emesis, and profound dilatation of her stomach was detected on a radiation therapy simulation CT scan that required urgent decompression...

INTRODUCTION: Gastric lipomas are unusual benign lesions and account for less than 1% of all tumours of the stomach and 5% of all gastrointestinal lipomas (Thompson et al.2003; Fernandez et al. 1983 [1,2]). Although predominantly asymptomatic and indolent; they may present with gastric outlet obstruction and upper gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding owing to size and ulceration. Only a few cases have been reported, presenting large in size with massive GI bleeding (Alcalde Escribano et al...

A 67-year-old man presented with food impaction and was found to have a gastric polyp obstructing the esophageal outlet. Due to the polyp's location and size, no immediate endoscopic intervention was performed, and the patient returned for intraoperative endoscopy and polypectomy. Cases of gastric polyps causing esophageal obstruction have not been identified in the literature. This case is unique for the location and size of the polyp, necessitating concomitant surgical management.

A 3-year-old girl with the diagnosis of chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) was hospitalized for bronchopneumonia and congestive heart failure. Her medical history included methylprednisolone medication for autoimmune gastric outlet obstruction. Computed tomography revealed pneumonic infiltrations and pericardial thickening. A pulsed-wave Doppler recording revealed E/A >1. During a pericardiectomy, multiple islands of thick, firm-walled, fibrinous exudate-containing, small abscess formations were observed...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Disorders of gastric outflow and outlet obstruction include a variety of benign and malignant disorders such as peptic strictures, foreign bodies, gastroparesis, and cancers of the stomach, duodenum, and pancreas. Historically, a majority of patients presenting with gastric outlet obstruction (GOO) were to the result of peptic ulcers and surgical management of peptic ulcer complications was a mainstay of general surgical training. Invasive surgery is being performed less frequently today due to realization of the role of Helicobacter pylori in peptic ulcer disease and the introduction of novel endoscopic techniques for management of GOO...

Heterotopic pancreas (HP) is a relatively uncommon entity that is defined as pancreatic tissue without a true anatomical or vascular connection to the pancreas. HP does not cause symptoms in most cases but can occasionally produce various manifestations, including nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and even heterotopic pancreatitis. Here, we report an unusual case in which heterotopic pancreatitis complicated by the formation of a pseudocyst that caused gastric outlet obstruction was diagnosed based on serum hyperamylasemia and findings from endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS)-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) cytology...

The prognosis of pancreatic cancer remains poor, even after initial surgical therapy. Local recurrence after Whipple's pancreatico-duodenectomy may lead to intestinal obstruction at the level of the afferent limb or the alimentary limb. Endoscopic insertion of a self-expandable metal stent (SEMS) into the intestinal malignant stricture is the preferred method of choice for palliation. We describe two new endoscopic techniques to treat a malignant intestinal obstruction with the insertion of a SEMS into the afferent limb and the alimentary limb...

Gastroduodenal intussusception is the rarest forms of adult intussusception. We present a case of gastroduodenal intussusception due to a gastric Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumour (GIST). The patient was a 65-year-old female who clinically presented as acute gastric outlet obstruction. The patient was managed by gentle reduction of the intussusception, followed by wedge resection of the tumour. She was relieved of her symptoms and recurrence free for past one year.
