Follicular dendritic cell sarcoma (FDCS) is extremely rare in small intestine that only four cases(1-4) were reported in English literature so far. We herein report the fifth case. A 71-year-old man with a history of colonoscopic polypectomy presented to our hospital because of left lower abdominal pain for one year. The laboratory test lack specificity. Computed tomographies (CT) scan indicated small intestinal mass, possibly lymphoma. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

This study presents the revised Polish guidelines regarding the management of patients suffering from neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) of the small intestine and appendix. The small intestine, especially the ileum, is the most common location for these neoplasms. Most are well differentiated and slow growing. Their symptoms may be atypical, which can result in delayed or accidental diagnosis. Appendicitis is usually the first manifestation of NEN in this location. Typical symptoms of carcinoid syndrome occur in approximately 20-30% of patients suffering from small intestinal NENs with distant metastases...

OBJECTIVES: Lipomas are the second most common benign tumors of the small bowel, and most lipomas are asymptomatic. However, lipomas with diameters of >20 mm tend to be symptomatic, for example, to cause bleeding, obstructive jaundice, abdominal pain, intestinal obstruction, intussusception, and/or perforation. METHODS/RESULTS: We report a case of massive gastrointestinal bleeding from a jejunal lipoma combined with intussusception. A preoperative diagnosis of gastrointestinal bleeding derived from a jejunal lipoma combined with intussusception was made based on double-balloon enteroscopy and contrast-enhanced computed tomography, and partial resection of the small intestine was performed...

BACKGROUND: Development of a high-fidelity cardiac surgery simulator (CSS) requires integration of a heart model with a mock cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) circuit that can provide feedback to mimic the pathophysiology of cardiac surgery. However, the cost of commercially available simulators precludes regular use. We describe steps in the construction of a high-fidelity CSS that integrates a pulsatile paracorporeal ventricular-assist device (Pulse-VAD) and a commercially available CPB simulator...

During transradial intervention, sharp edge of the guide catheter tip may act like a "razor-blade" and can prevent the catheter navigation especially in situation like double hair pin loop. Here, we report primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) through diagnostic catheter using an innovative technique, balloon-assisted sliding and tracking (BLAST), to overcome this double hairpin loop, thus saving time and contrast volume.

Many small bowel disorders represent a great challenge for gastroenterologists and endoscopists due to the very low rates of success showed by the different agnosis techniques. The advent of the capsule endoscopy and double-balloon endoscopy has allowed a total, secure and efficient examination of the small bowel, which represents a real impact in diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of our patients. The capsule endoscopy is a safe, minimally invasive procedure, which does not need sedation, does not cause pain, and allows the observation of the totality of the small bowel...

Balloon breach during cryoablation: To date, this is the first published report of a double-wall breach while using the cryoballoon ablation catheter during the treatment of a patient with atrial fibrillation; however, there have been previous balloon breaches in both the second and third-generation cryoballoon ablation catheter usage. In this report, we describe the case of a double-wall balloon breach and the intraoperative care that was necessary to stabilize the patient. Additionally, we review other known cases of double-wall balloon breaches, and we examine the safety systems of the cryoballoon catheter that mitigate some of the potential patient complications...

Background: A rare percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) complication and its management is reported. Case Presentation: A male patient, 43 years of age, underwent PCNL for a large left pyelocaliceal stone. Surgery was performed in the Valdivia-Galdakao supine position. The percutaneous tract was established by combined radiologic and sonographic guidance. The tract was dilated by balloon and a 24F Amplatz sheath was located. As complete clearance was not achieved because of a residual lower pole caliceal stone, a ureteral Double-J and a 20F nephrostomy were located for a second-look PCNL through the same tract after 7 days...

Arterioureteral fistulas (AUF) are serious diseases with increasing incidence. This case report relates the management of AUF in a patient with a history of abdominal oncological surgery, pelvic radiotherapy, and a double J stent in place. The fistula was discovered during a hemorrhagic shock with massive hematuria. The bleeding was controlled by a balloon catheter which led to endovascular treatment consisting of a covered stent.

We present a vacuum window mechanism that is useful for applications requiring two different vacuum windows in series, with one of them movable and resealable. Such applications include space borne instruments that can benefit from a thin vacuum window at low ambient pressures but must also have an optically open aperture at atmospheric pressures. We describe the implementation and successful operation with the E and B experiment balloon-borne payload, a millimeter-wave instrument designed to measure the polarization of the cosmic microwave background radiation...

Focal cortical dysplasia type II (FCD II) and tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) are well-known causes of chronic refractory epilepsy in children. Canonical transient receptor potential channels (TRPCs) are non-selective cation channels that are commonly activated by phospholipase C (PLC) stimulation. Previous studies found that TRPC4 may participate in the process of epileptogenesis. This study aimed to examine the expression and distribution of TRPC4 in FCD II (n = 24) and TSC (n = 11) surgical specimens compared with that in age-matched autopsy control samples (n = 12)...

We herein report two patients with mantle cell lymphoma (MCL), who had isolated mass and multiple lymphomatous polyposis (MLP) in the gastrointestinal tract. In case 1, esophagogastroduodenoscopy revealed a protruding mass in the duodenum and double-balloon endoscopy disclosed numerous polypoid lesions in the ileum. Case 2 had polyposis in the duodenum and a large mass-forming lesion in the ascending colon. Based on the histologic and immunohistochemical findings of the biopsy specimens, the diagnosis of MCL was made in both patients...
