Placement of catheters, drains, shunts, and tubes in children can lead to serious or even fatal complications at the moment of placement, such as hemorrhage at insertion, or in the longterm, such as infections and migration into adjacent organs. The clinician should always be aware of these potential complications, especially if the child is unwell. For postmortem diagnostic evaluation, either with a computed tomography scan or an invasive autopsy, all tubes, drains, shunts, and/or catheters should be left in situ...

STUDY DESIGN: Prospective comparative study. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate whether weight percentile (WP) increases after VEPTR insertion, and whether WP correlates with nutrition labs and pulmonary function. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Children with thoracic insufficiency syndrome (TIS) often have "failure to thrive" (WP ≤5). Previous authors have reported an increase in WP after VEPTR surgery. Weight gain was hypothesized to be secondary to improved pulmonary function...

Balloon-assisted endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatoscopy (ERCP) in Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) patients is technically challenging due to anatomic and accessory constraints, thus success rates are modest. Transgastric ERCP (TG-ERCP) offers a viable alternative. We aimed to systematically review the literature on TG-ERCP in RYGB patients to better define the technical approaches, success rates, and adverse events of this procedure. A computer-assisted search of the Embase and PubMed databases was performed to identify studies that focused on the techniques and clinical outcomes of TG-ERCP...

Migration of percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) tube to colon with gastro-colonic-cutaneous fistula formation is a rare complication of the procedure. Transient episodic diarrhea following each PEG tube feeding is typical of this complication. We present a 72-year-old man with cerebrovascular disease and scoliosis who encountered episodes of transient diarrhea after each PEG tube feeding. His diarrhea was refractory to medications. Colonoscopy demonstrated a mal-positioned PEG in the transverse colon...

PURPOSE: Preoperative antibiosis contributes up to one third of total antibiotic use in major hospitals. Choice of antibiotic is not uniformly standardized, and polypharmacy regimens may be used without knowing the effect on rates of surgical site infection, nonsurgical infections, or antibiotic resistance. Careful examination of trends in surgical prophylaxis is warranted. In this study, we aimed to examine our institution's experience with vagus nerve stimulator (VNS) implantation, focusing on association between perioperative antibiotic practices and postoperative infectious outcomes...

Background/Aims: Esophageal stricture is usually managed with outpatient endoscopic dilation. However, patients with food impaction or failure to thrive undergo inpatient dilation. Esophageal perforation is the most feared complication, and its risk in inpatient setting is unknown. Methods: We used National Inpatient Sample (NIS) database for 2007-2013. International Classification of Diseases, 9th revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) codes were used to identify patients with esophageal strictures...

This case describes successful reconstruction of a long-segment tracheal defect using AlloDerm as the conduit for reconstruction. A 38-year-old woman who had undergone a thyroid lobectomy in 2011 presented several months later unable to swallow. Chest computed tomography results revealed a tracheal/esophageal mass and a subsequent bronchoscopy, and esophagogastroduodenoscopy results revealed an upper esophageal/tracheal mass with two areas concerning for fistula. She underwent a bronchoscopy with a tracheal stent and percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy placement...

Although percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) tube placement is a common and safe procedure to provide enteral feeding, some patients develop complications. The aim of this study was to identify risk factors for the development of post-PEG complications. We hypothesized that patients with low albumin, diabetes, higher body mass index (BMI), thicker abdominal walls, or psychomotor agitation would have more complications. A 2-year retrospective review was performed on patients who received a PEG tube at a single institution...

BACKGROUND: Post-intubation tracheoesophageal fistula (PITEF) is an often mistreated, severe condition. This case series reviewed for both the choice and timing of surgical technique and outcome PITEF patients. METHODS: This case series reviewed ten consecutive patients who had undergone esophageal defect repair and airway resection/reconstruction between 2000 and 2014. All cases were examined for patients: general condition, medical history, preparation to surgery, diagnostic work-up, timing of surgery and procedure, fistula size and site, ventilation type, nutrition, post-operative course and complications...

BACKGROUND: Limited literature has examined characteristics of infants with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) who remain hospitalized during the interstage period. We described their epidemiologic characteristics, in-hospital outcomes, and identified risk factors that predict the need for superior cavopulmonary anastomosis (SCPA) during the same hospitalization. METHODS: This retrospective multicenter database analysis included infants with HLHS who underwent stage 1 palliation from 2004 through 2013...

There is a desperate need for a technically simple, reversible, clinically effective, and safe approach to facilitate weight loss and improvement in metabolic comorbidities in obese patients. This has led to significant investment into the development of endoscopic bariatric therapies. In this issue of the American Journal of Gastroenterology, the first randomized controlled trial assessing aspiration therapy using an endoscopically placed gastrostomy tube is reported with promising results. Aspiration therapy is the first endoscopic therapy to be approved in the United States for use in morbidly obese patients and may be an alternative to those not wishing to undergo bariatric surgery...

In Japan, patients who require home medical care are increasing especially in the elderly. In home medical care settings, devices such as gastrostomy tubes, tracheal cannulas, and urethral catheters are usually replaced by visiting physicians or nurses. However, device replacement services are not always available in Japan. Unless device replacement services are sufficiently provided to patients at home, patients have to suffer various disadvantages, including a forced visit to a hospital for device replacement despite inability to walk...

BACKGROUND: Non-human primates (NHPs) are often used as recipients in preclinical transplantation research that in most cases involves administration of various drugs including immunosuppressants. Long-term oral drug administration, particularly tacrolimus, is challenging in the transplant recipient NHPs. Oral drug administration method using the mixture of drug and fruit juice has been used in NHPs, but this is not always effective in all monkeys. To those monkeys who are poorly compliant, oral drug administration in restraint or administration using gastrostomy tube should be necessary...

Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy (PEG) tubes were often offered to patients requiring long term enteral feeding. Even though the procedure is relatively safe, it is associated with various complications such as peritonitis or even death.1 We presented a case of a 54-year-old gentleman with underlying ischemic stroke and pus discharges from a recently inserted PEG tube. Computed Topography (CT) scan confirmed abdominal wall necrotising fasciitis complicated with hyperosmolar hyperglycaemia state (HHS) and later succumbed after 48 hours of admission...

Over-the-scope-clips (OTSC(®)) have been shown to be an effective and safe endoscopic treatment option for the closure of gastrointestinal perforations, leakages and fistulae. Indications for endoscopic OTSC(®) treatment have grown in number and also include gastro cutaneous fistula (GCF) after percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) tube removal. Non-healing GCF is a rare complication after removal of PEG tubes and may especially develop in immunosuppressed patients with multiple comorbidities. There is growing evidence in the literature that OTSC(®) closure of GCF after PEG tube removal is emerging as an effective, simple and safe endoscopic treatment option...

Oral mucositis is a common and often debilitating complication among cancer patients receiving radiation therapy to the head and neck or chemotherapy agents, or undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Pain and decreased oral function associated with oral mucositis may persist long after the conclusion of therapy. Although most patients respond to conservative management, a subset of patients develop intractable pain with severe consequences. For some, the use of total parenteral nutrition with insertion of percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy feeding tubes is the only alternative...
