Rationale: The objective of this autopsy study was to determine whether abnormal gastrointestinal vascularity develops during continuous-flow LVAD support. Objective: Left ventricular assist device (LVAD) support causes pathologic degradation of von Willebrand factor (vWF) and bleeding from gastrointestinal angiodysplasia at an alarming rate. It has been speculated that LVAD support, itself may cause angiodysplasia. The relationship to abnormal vWF metabolism is unknown. We tested the hypothesis that abnormal gastrointestinal vascularity develops during continuous-flow LVAD support...

BACKGROUND: Gastrointestinal bleeding (GIB) is a complication reported in patients post left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation that is associated with high mortality rates. Thalidomide is an anti-angiogenic compound that may offer a potential option for management of refractory LVAD-related GIB. METHODS: A single-center, retrospective review was conducted from January 2009 to October 2016 at a tertiary cardiology center. It included LVAD patients initiated on thalidomide for refractory GIB...

OBJECTIVE: Upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB) is a common emergency, with in-hospital mortality between 3 and 14%. However, the long-term mortality and causes of death are unknown. We investigated the long-term mortality and causes of death in UGIB patients in a retrospective single-centre case-control study design. METHODS: A total of 569 consecutive patients, aged ≥18 years, admitted to Kuopio University Hospital for their first endoscopically verified UGIB during the years 2009-2011 were identified from hospital records...

AIM: To investigate the range of pathologies treated by pancreas preserving distal duodenectomy (PPDD) and present the outcome of follow-up. METHODS: Neoplastic lesions of the duodenum are treated conventionally by pancreaticoduodenectomy. Lesions distal to the major papilla may be suitable for a pancreas-preserving distal duodenectomy, potentially reducing morbidity and mortality. We present our experience with this procedure. Selective intraoperative duodenoscopy assessed the relationship of the papilla to the lesion...

BACKGROUND: Capsule endoscopy (CE) is a useful tool for patients with obscure gastrointestinal bleeding (OGIB), but positive finding rate differs among trials, which may be attributable to the difference in patients' background. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the predictive factors associated with positive findings on CE. METHODS: Consecutive patients with OGIB who underwent CE between March 2004 and May 2015 at a single university hospital were enrolled...

Angiodysplasia is a frequent cause of persistent gastrointestinal (GI) hemorrhage in elderly patients. Although GI bleeding isn't the most common manifestation in patients with bleeding disorders, when present, it represents a challenging complication. We describe a 62-year-old patient with Glanzmann's thrombasthenia, who used thalidomide for severe and recurrent GI bleeding. For 6 months, the patient experienced temporary control of GI bleeding with thalidomide in a daily oral dose of 100 mg. The anti-angiogenic effects of thalidomide have recently been explored by several groups, particularly in the management of bleeding from angiodysplasia, including cases with von Willebrand disease...

The incidence of primary aorto-enteric fistula (PAEF) is low with only few case reports and case series published. Depending on the location of the PAEF, the perforation leads to upper or lower gastrointestinal haemorrhages. We conducted a MEDLINE search according to the PRISMA statement. Articles with publication dates from 2000 to 2016 were included and present an own case report. We considered all case reports and series reporting on PAEF and identified 85 individual patients from 32 case reports and five case series...

INTRODUCTION: The over-the-scope clip (OTSC) overcomes limitations of standard clips and achieves a more efficient and reliable hemostasis in non-variceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding (NVUGIB). The study aims to evaluate mortality, rebleeding, and mortality after rebleeding of patients in whom the OTSC was used as the first-line endoscopic treatment (FLET) of NVUGIB. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In total, 118 patients (FLET cohort) with a median age of 73.5 years (range 29-93 years; mean (±SD) 71...

BACKGROUND: Acute lower gastrointestinal bleeding is a common reason for emergency hospital admission, and identification of patients at low risk of harm, who are therefore suitable for outpatient investigation, is a clinical and research priority. We aimed to develop and externally validate a simple risk score to identify patients with lower gastrointestinal bleeding who could safely avoid hospital admission. METHODS: We undertook model development with data from the National Comparative Audit of Lower Gastrointestinal Bleeding from 143 hospitals in the UK in 2015...

BACKGROUND: Lifelong antiplatelet treatment is recommended after ischaemic vascular events, on the basis of trials done mainly in patients younger than 75 years. Upper gastrointestinal bleeding is a serious complication, but had low case fatality in trials of aspirin and is not generally thought to cause long-term disability. Consequently, although co-prescription of proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs) reduces upper gastrointestinal bleeds by 70-90%, uptake is low and guidelines are conflicting...

REVIEW
Erlan Santos
In Peru, the incidence of gastric cancer is reported to be around 15.8 per 100,000 inhabitants and it is the second most common oncological disease in men and the third one in women. Additionally, a high mortality index was reported, especially among poor people. To address this issue, in 2008, Peru initiated several insurance treatment plans of oncological diseases with promising results. In Mexico, there is a high predominance of gastric cancer in male gender compared to female gender, even reaching a 2/1 ratio, and the detection rate of early gastric cancer is low (10% to 20%) which results in a mainly palliative treatment with an overall survival rate in 5 years about 10% to 15% only...

#16
REVIEW
Hiroyuki Odagiri, Hideo Yasunaga
Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is a relatively new procedure used for the treatment of early gastrointestinal cancers regardless of the lesion size and configuration, and it has gradually acquired popularity because of its minimally invasive nature. As compared to conventional endoscopic resection, ESD is a more complex procedure and requires a higher level of technical skill. Therefore, it is associated with a higher complication rate. Many previous studies that investigated the complication rates following ESD analyzed data from a limited number of specialized centers, possibly leading to an underestimation of the complication rates...

AIM: Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) are quite rare tumors, but yet they are the most common mesenchymal lesions of gastrointestinal tract. Their outmost frequent origin site is stomach and presently surgical resection is the mainstay in the treatment of gastric non metastatic GIST. Their peculiar characteristic of growth and poor metastatic tendency make this tumors particularly prone to be managed by minimally invasive technique. Presenting our experience we want show the feasibility and safeness of laparoscopic approach for gastric GIST and its benefits versus traditional open surgery and pointing out short term and long terms outcomes...

This document updates the colorectal cancer (CRC) screening recommendations of the U.S. Multi-Society Task Force of Colorectal Cancer (MSTF), which represents the American College of Gastroenterology, the American Gastroenterological Association, and The American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy. CRC screening tests are ranked in 3 tiers based on performance features, costs, and practical considerations. The first-tier tests are colonoscopy every 10 years and annual fecal immunochemical test (FIT). Colonoscopy and FIT are recommended as the cornerstones of screening regardless of how screening is offered...

BACKGROUND: Delirium is a common and serious postoperative complication. Subanaesthetic ketamine is often administered intraoperatively for postoperative analgesia, and some evidence suggests that ketamine prevents delirium. The primary purpose of this trial was to assess the effectiveness of ketamine for prevention of postoperative delirium in older adults. METHODS: The Prevention of Delirium and Complications Associated with Surgical Treatments [PODCAST] study is a multicentre, international randomised trial that enrolled adults older than 60 years undergoing major cardiac and non-cardiac surgery under general anaesthesia...
