Acute pancreatitis is a frequent disease, with a simple course in 80 % of the cases but a high morbidity and mortality in its severe form. Biliary origin and alcohol represent 80 % of the etiologies. Except endoscopic removal of gallstone for biliary origin, treatment remains symptomatic and focuses on fluid resuscitation, effective antalgia and adapted management of nutrition. This article focuses on the novelties introduced by the revision of the Classification of Atlanta in 2012 and details current guidelines for the management of the disease...

REVIEW
Massimo Tonolini, Elena Bracchi
Surgical resection represents the mainstay treatment and only potentially curative option for gastric carcinoma, and is increasingly performed laparoscopically. Furthermore, other tumours and selected cases of non-malignant disorders of the stomach may require partial or total gastrectomy. Often performed in elderly patients, gastric resection remains a challenging procedure, with significant morbidity (14-43% complication rate) and non-negligible postoperative mortality (approximately 3%). This paper provides an overview of contemporary surgical techniques for non-bariatric gastric resection, reviews and illustrates the expected postoperative imaging appearances, common and unusual complications after partial and total gastrectomy...

The presented chest X-ray depicts the thoracic duct anatomy of a 50-year-old man who underwent heart transplantation. His postoperative course was complicated by Candida mediastinitis, treated with débridements and closure of the anterior chest wound with myocutaneous flaps. Postoperatively, he had persistent output from a right-sided chest tube. The fluid appeared milky and its triglycerides level was elevated at 254 mg/dL. The drainage persisted despite a low fat diet. The interventional radiologist identified a leak in the upper thoracic duct...

Approximately 9% of all blunt trauma patients suffer pelvic fractures. These fractures can range from insignificant and requiring almost no therapy to massive destruction of the pelvic ring with associated with multisystem injury and life-threatening hypotension which mandates the attention of the trauma surgeon, the orthopedic surgeon, the interventional radiologists and possibly other subspecialists. We present a case of a patient who presented to the emergency room in extremis from massive bleeding from a complex pelvic fracture...

Interventional radiology (IR) has evolved into a full-fledged clinical specialty with attendant comprehensive patient care responsibilities. Providing excellent and thorough clinical care is as essential to the practice of IR as achieving technical success in procedures. Basic clinical skills that every interventional radiologist should learn include routine management of percutaneously inserted drainage and vascular catheters and rapid effective management of common systemic post-procedural complications. A structured approach to post-procedural care, including routine follow-up and early identification and management of complications, facilitates efficient and thorough management with an emphasis on quality and patient safety...

Arteriovenous fistulation between the vertebral arteries to extradural (epidural) veins, termed vertebro-vertebral arteriovenous fistulae, are uncommon diagnoses without established diagnostic algorithms or treatment options. Minimal evidence exists describing the management of this pathology. Endovascular treatment was performed under general anaesthesia by coil occlusion of the vertebral artery from the point of the fistula to the mid-vertebral artery. Repeat magnetic resonance angiographic imaging one week following the procedure confirmed an 80% reduction in the size of the epidural vein and decompression of the cervical spinal cord...

The premature infant suffers from immaturity of all organ systems, one of them being the gastrointestinal tract. When the infant is born, the immature gastrointestinal tract is exposed to milk and simultaneously colonized by high densities of bacteria. The combination of milk, microbiota and an immature gut, leaves the infant vulnerable to developing the dreaded intestinal emergency necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC). NEC is often very aggressive and no cure exists, which means that prevention is an utmost important topic to researchers, physicians, parents - and infants...

The Glubran 2 cyanoacrylate glue is a liquid embolic agent used to block blood vessels endovascularly. Typically mixed with an iodized oil (Lipiodol) for visualization under X-ray, it polymerizes when in contact with blood and tissues owing to the presence of ions and proteins. The objective of the study is to determine the influence of plasma proteins in the polymerization reaction. A triggering solution containing bovine serum albumin (BSA) and the main blood ions is used as a model of plasma. The polymerization kinetics of Glubran 2-Lipiodol mixtures is measured upon aspiration in a capillary tube and contact with the proteinaceous solution...
