BACKGROUND AND AIM: Endoscopic snare papillectomy (ESP) is an effective treatment for ampullary adenoma. Argon plasma coagulation (APC) is widely used as an additional method to control bleeding or ablate the residual tumor. However, the efficacy of this procedure has not yet been fully evaluated. This study aimed to evaluate the usefulness of APC as an additional method to ESP. METHODS: The patients who underwent ESP for ampullary adenoma between September 2005 and September 2015 were retrospectively reviewed...

Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome is characterised by vascular abnormality which increases the risk of thromboembolism and haemorrhage. Physiological changes in pregnancy pose an increased risk to these complications. Being an uncommon disorder, there is limited literature about the management of women with pregnancy and Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome. We report in detail two of three pregnancies in a woman with Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome who had repeated episodes of haematochezia leading to anaemia, managed with Argon laser Photo-Coagulation in pregnancy and also reviewed the complications and the management of pregnant women with Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome...

We investigated the possible neuroprotectant and intraocular pressure (IOP) lowering effects of intravitreous injection of sodium hydrosulfide (NaSH) in a rodent model of experimental glaucoma. Glaucoma currently is treated by controlling IOP using medications and/or surgery. These methods are not entirely adequate for all patients. We divided 24 rats into three groups. For the control group, the right eye was treated with intravitreous saline. For the glaucoma group, ocular hypertension was induced by photocoagulating three episcleral veins and the limbal plexus of the right eye using an argon laser, then saline was injected into the vitreous of these eyes during the third week...

We present a rare case of giant endobronchial hamartoma coexisting with lung atelectasis for more than 3 years. The small specimen initially biopsied via bronchoscope did not reveal tissue features, but some features were suspicious for squamous cell carcinoma. The lesion was removed completely using snare electrocautery combined with argon plasma coagulation via flexible fiberoptic bronchoscopy. The patient made a satisfactory recovery, and a pathological diagnosis was made. This could be a useful option in selected endobronchial tumors...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Due to previous manipulation or submucosal invasion, GI lesions referred for endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) frequently have flat areas of visible tissue that cannot be snared. Current methods for treating residual tissue may lead to incomplete eradication or not allow complete tissue sampling for histologic evaluation. Our aim is to describe dissection-enabled scaffold-assisted resection (DeSCAR), a new technique combining circumferential ESD with EMR for removal of superficial non-lifting or residual "islands" with suspected submucosal involvement/fibrosis...

A 65-year-old man presented with obstructive pneumonia due to squamous cell carcinoma of the lung, which invaded the right main bronchus. Argon plasma coagulation was performed, which reduced his symptoms. Right pneumonectomy was performed after preoperative chemotherapy; the pathological diagnosis was T3N1M0 Stage IIIA. Fifteen months after surgery, he presented with bloody sputum. Bronchoscopy showed multiple endotracheal tumors, and a pathological examination revealed squamous cell carcinoma; the same histology as the primary lung cancer...

A small proportion of gastrointestinal angiodysplasia bleeding leads to chronic blood cell transfusion dependency. There are no guidelines supporting decision-making among various treatments in patients with gastrointestinal angiodysplasia bleeding. When endoscopic argon plasma coagulation is ineffective, the angiogenesis inhibitors thalidomide and octreotide can be considered. We describe a 77-year-old woman who had side effects of these angiogenesis inhibitors, which caused her to have continued bleeding...

Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is the most commonly performed bariatric procedure. Despite its high efficacy, some patients regain part of their lost weight. Several endoscopic therapies have been introduced as alternatives to treat weight regain, but most of the articles are relatively small with unclear long-term data. To systematically assess the efficacy of endoscopic therapies for weight regain after RYGB. We searched MEDLINE, EMBASE, Scopus, Web of Science, Cochrane, OVID, CINAHL/EBSCo, LILACS/Bireme, and gray literature...

BACKGROUND: Nonthermal atmospheric pressure plasma (NTAPP) has recently received attention as a novel tool in medicine. It is thought that plasma components yield plasma effects such as sterilization, blood coagulation, and wound healing. These effects are produced without thermal damage. We investigated the blood coagulation effect of NTAPP by using a multigas plasma jet. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Multigas plasma jets can generate NTAPP by several gas species. In this study, argon, oxygen, helium, nitrogen, mock air, and carbon dioxide were used to generate NTAPP, and blood coagulation times were compared with each plasma-treated sample...

BACKGROUND: The development of central airway obstruction during malignant diseases is an important cause of morbidity and mortality. Endobronchial therapies can decrease the patient's symptoms and improve quality of life. Here, we compare airway recanalization methods: argon plasma coagulation with mechanical tumor resection (APC + MTR) and cryorecanalization (CR efficiency, complications, restenosis rate, and time to restenosis) in patients with malignant exophytic endobronchial airway obstruction...

BACKGROUND: Benign central airway tumors are very rare diseases. Their unspecific symptoms are responsible for late diagnosis. Endoscopic interventions with different techniques and tools are widely used for their treatment. However, in certain cases interventional endoscopy might be unsuccessful and therefore other methods such as high-dose-rate brachytherapy could be a therapeutic option. CASE PRESENTATION: A 76-year-old white German woman was referred to our clinic for an endoscopic treatment of a recurrent granulation polyp in her left main bronchus...

A 47-year-old patient presented from outside the hospital for evaluation of iron deficiency anemia (IDA). The endoscopic workup suggested a gastric antral subepithelial lesion with an overlying arteriovenous malformation (AVM). Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) revealed the lesion to be a lipoma. Given the patient's anemia and blood transfusion requirements, the AVM was treated with argon plasma coagulation (APC). During this treatment, desiccation of fat was noted with a significant decrease in the size of the subepithelial lesion (the gastric lipoma)...

Metastatic disease to the tibial plafond is rare with few reports in the literature. No consensus exists regarding surgical reconstruction of large structural defects of the ankle due to these lesions, as each treatment must be tailored to the individual patient's goals and prognosis. Cancer metastases pose a unique challenge to limb salvage as there is often bone loss and poor soft tissue quality combined with the need for postoperative adjuvant therapy. The goal of surgery is to obtain early weightbearing, pain relief, and a durable reconstruction that will outlive the patient...

REVIEW
Shin Hee Kim, Su Jin Hong
The cases of non-curative endoscopic resection (NCR) of early gastric cancer have increased due to the widespread use of endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD). NCR is associated with augmenting chances of local recurrence and lymph node metastasis (LNM). Therefore, some additional treatment strategies after NCR are needed. Treatment strategies for NCR should be determined by considering the risk of residual tumor or local recurrence and LNM. Additional surgical treatment such as gastrectomy and lymph node dissection are recommended in patients who have high-risk of LNM...
