Marfan syndrome commonly affects the skeletal, ocular, and cardiovascular systems. Involvement of the gastrointestinal system is known but uncommon. Intervention depends upon the system involved and the severity of symptoms. Special awareness is required for the diagnosis and management of gastrointestinal involvement in these patients. We report a rare case of simultaneous surgical repair of an ascending aortic aneurysm and a type IV hiatal hernia in a 35-year-old man with Marfan syndrome.

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: Hiatal hernia is considered to be a predisposing factor to develop Mallory-Weiss Syndrome (MWS). No large case-control studies verifying this hypothesis have been conducted. METHODS: We reviewed all esophagogastroduodenoscopies with findings of MWS (n = 2342) in a national database and compared with age and gender-matched controls (n = 9368). Demographics, endoscopic characteristics and presence of a hiatal hernia were compared between both groups...

Chest pain is a common symptom in patients who visit Emergency Departments. The main task is to exclude life-threatening diseases such as acute coronary syndrome, pulmonary embolization and dissection of thoracic aorta. The authors present the history of a patient, who had an intense chest pain for 7 hours. In accordance with the diagnostic algorithm of chest pain, ECG, blood collection, chest X-ray and chest computed tomography angiography were performed. Acute coronary syndrome, pulmonary embolization and dissection of the thoracic aorta were excluded, however, chest computed tomography CT revealed a huge hiatal hernia as an incidental finding...

Galloway-Mowat syndrome (GMS) is an autosomal recessive disorder with a poor prognosis that was first defined as a triad of central nervous system involvement, hiatal hernia, and nephrotic syndrome. However, this syndrome is now known to have a heterogeneous clinical presentation. The nephrotic syndrome is steroid resistant and is responsible for the outcome. The combination of collapsing glomerulopathy and GMS is very rare. A 26-month-old boy presented with steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome associated with neurologic findings, including microcephaly, psychomotor retardation, and nystagmus...

Upside-down stomach syndrome is a rare type of a large paraoesophageal hiatal hernia, which requires an immediate surgical treatment in case of incarceration. The authors present a case report of a 53-year-old male patient with gastric volvulus related to the upside-down stomach syndrome. Surgical treatment was complicated by an injury to distal oesophagus, which was successfully treated using a self-expandable metallic stent among other methods. Despite the complicated postoperative course with a necessity of reoperation, insertion of an oesophageal stent, thoracotomy for a mediastinal abscess and secondary healing of the laparotomy, the patient was discharged in a good condition with healed oesophageal perforation and laparotomy after 52 days...

INTRODUCTION: In 2016 60 years will have elapsed from the first publication by Nissen about his surgical method of 360° fundoplication around distal esophagus and its final effect. Nissens fundoplication is currently the most common surgical method for the gastroesophageal reflux (GER) and hiatal hernia (HH) probably. Incidence of HH ranges between 25-50% in the western population. Current prevalence of GER ranges between 4-10% in Europe and 5-7% in North America, but some studies report even 10-20%...

BACKGROUND: Before bariatric surgery, the necessity of routine upper gastrointestinal endoscopy is controversial, and guidelines recommend endoscopy in symptomatic cases. However, impaired visceral sensation occurring in obese patients may be misleading. The purpose of the study is to evaluate prospectively the prevalence of gastrointestinal symptoms, endoscopic findings, and the relation between symptoms and endoscopic findings in obese patients before surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: One hundred forty-two consecutive patients candidate to primary bariatric surgery filled out the validated Rome III symptomatic questionnaire and performed endoscopy...

BACKGROUND: The need for a fundoplication during repair of paraesophageal hiatal hernias (PEH) remains unclear. Prevention of gastroesophageal reflux represents a trade-off against the risk of fundoplication-related side effects. The aim of this trial was to compare laparoscopic mesh-augmented hiatoplasty with simple cardiophrenicopexy (LMAH-C) with laparoscopic mesh-augmented hiatoplasty with fundoplication (LMAH-F) in patients with PEH. STUDY DESIGN: The study was designed as a patient- and assessor-blinded randomized controlled pilot trial, registration number: DRKS00004492 (www...

BACKGROUND: Biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch (BPD-DS) has been reported to be the most effective procedure for weight loss and minimizing postoperative weight regain. However, because of its technical complexity and concerns for higher operative and metabolic complications, it has not obtained widespread acceptance among patients or bariatric surgeons. Nevertheless, the use of robotic systems has been increasing because of its ability to overcome technical challenges, such as torque, freedom of movement, and precision...

The worldwide incidence of GORD and its complications is increasing along with the exponentially increasing problem of obesity. Of particular concern is the relationship between central adiposity and GORD complications, including oesophageal adenocarcinoma. Driven by progressive insight into the epidemiology and pathophysiology of GORD, the earlier belief that increased gastroesophageal reflux mainly results from one dominant mechanism has been replaced by acceptance that GORD is multifactorial. Instigating factors, such as obesity, age, genetics, pregnancy and trauma may all contribute to mechanical impairment of the oesophagogastric junction resulting in pathological reflux and accompanying syndromes...

BACKGROUND: Obesity is closely related to upper gastrointestinal diseases. China has a high incidence of gastropathy. Postoperative examination of the distal stomach becomes extremely difficult after laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery (LRYGB). Whether preoperative routine gastroscopy should be performed at all remains controversial. The objective of this study was to explore the value of routine gastroscopy before performing LRYGB in Chinese patients. METHODS: The preoperative gastroscopy reports of 180 patients who had undergone LRYGB for morbid obesity and/or metabolic syndrome in the Department of Gastrointestinal Surgery of our hospital from January 2009 to August 2013 were retrospectively analyzed...
