WHAT IS KNOWN AND OBJECTIVE: Elbasvir/grazoprevir is an all-oral regimen approved for patients with hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotypes 1 and 4, and in renal insufficiency. However, to date, no data exist on the efficacy of this regimen when it is crushed and administered through a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) tube. Here, we illustrate the case of a 63-year-old man who is the only known patient with HCV infection in the English literature to have successfully achieved a sustained viral response (SVR) when elbasvir/grazoprevir oral combination was administered through a PEG tube...

INTRODUCTION: Postoperative duodenal-cutaneous fistula represents a rare and very complex problem. In most cases operative management becomes necessary, but only after local and systemic stabilization and sepsis control. CASE PRESENTATION: A 39-year-old man was admitted for surgical management of laparostomy and pyloro-duodenostomy of the first (DI) and second (DII) duodenal segments with one year of evolution, as a complication of several surgical interventions...

BACKGROUND: Infants with congenital heart disease often require feeding tube placement to supplement oral intake. Gastrostomy tubes may be placed by either surgical or percutaneous endoscopic methods, but there is currently no data comparing outcomes of these procedures in this population. AIMS: The aim of our retrospective study was to investigate the perioperative outcomes between the 2 groups to determine if there are clinically significant differences. METHODS: We reviewed the charts of all infants with congenital heart disease at a single academic institution having isolated surgical or percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy tube placement from January 2011 to December 2015...

OBJECTIVE: Longer initial hospitalizations for preterm infants with bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) can delay family bonding and attainment of developmental milestones, increase the risk for hospital acquired complications, and increase healthcare costs. The goal of the study was to identify the characteristics associated with longer lengths of hospitalization in this high-risk population. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective analysis was performed on 660 children (born ≤32 weeks gestation) discharged from 13 Maryland NICUs recruited into an outpatient BPD registry...

Congenital heart disease (CHD) is the most common neonatal congenital malformation. The variety and severity of clinical presentation depend on the cardiac structures involved and their functional impact. The management of newborns with CHD requires a multidisciplinary approach, in which the nutritional aspect plays an important role. An adequate caloric intake during either preand post-surgical period, in fact, improves the outcome of these patients. In addition, the failure to thrive of these children in childhood has been related to long-term cognitive delay (attention deficit disorders, aggressive behaviour and poor social and emotional development)...

The technique of using percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) for long-term enteral feeding is well established and commonly used. While the technique is relatively safe and simple, the gastrostomy tube itself may deteriorate or malfunction, requiring a replacement tube. We present a case of a 58-year-old woman who was found to have gastric outlet obstruction from the inflated balloon of a Foley catheter being used as a replacement for her PEG tube. This case illustrates a potential complication of using a Foley catheter in place of commercially available gastrostomy tubes...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Recurrent/metastatic head and neck squamous cell cancer (r/mHNSCC) patients often need a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy feeding tube (PEG). Among known prognostic factors, PEG could be prognostic as well. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed r/mHNSCC patients referred for systemic treatment. Kaplan-Meier and multivariate cox regression models were applied to assess prognostic impact of PEG. RESULTS: One hunderd and ten patients were identified, 42 had a PEG at treatment start...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic gastrostomy (LG) is a common surgical procedure. However, there is little consensus on a postoperative feeding regimen. With prior nasogastric feed tolerance, there should be no delay in resumption of feeds and subsequent discharge to home. This is a report on a Feeding Advancement and Simultaneous Transition-Discharge (FAST-Discharge) pathway, which to date has not been reported in the literature. METHODS: A retrospective review of patients who underwent LG was performed from May 2010 to May 2015...

The percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) procedure is normally carried out by two doctors. Preliminary experience has suggested that this procedure may be accomplished with the same safety level using one doctor and a specially trained endoscopy nurse. The aim of the study was to assess the immediate outcome and 30 days' procedure-related morbidity following nurse-assisted percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (NA-PEG) in an unselected population of adult patients. Retrospective, nonconsecutive analysis of NA-PEG procedures were registered between 2008 and 2014...

Malnutrition is frequent in neurologically impaired (NI) children. Enteral feeding via gastrostomy tube is increasingly being used to provide adequate nutrition. Our aim was to assess the outcomes of exclusive gastrostomy tube feeding with standard polymeric formula in children with NI, severe oro-motor dysfunction, and malnutrition, and to investigate the role of the underlying NI-associated disease. A five-year retrospective study from January 2013 to November 2017 was conducted. The primary aim was to assess the nutritional outcomes of exclusive gastrostomy tube feeding with standard polymeric formula in malnourished NI children...

RATIONALE: In the intensive care unit (ICU), studies involving specialized palliative care services have shown decreases in the use of non-beneficial life-sustaining therapies and ICU length of stay for patients. However, whether widespread availability of hospital-based palliative care is associated with less frequent use of high intensity care is unknown. OBJECTIVE: To determine whether availability of hospital-based palliative care is associated with decreased markers of treatment intensity for ICU patients...

BACKGROUND: Variation exists in the diagnostic testing for gastroesophageal reflux (GER) in infants and in the application of surgical therapy. There has been an increase in antireflux surgery (ARS) since the development of laparoscopy but the outcomes in high-risk infants is unclear. This study examines the results of laparoscopic fundoplication in infants less than 2 years. METHODS: The results of infants less than 2 years undergoing laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication (Lap-F) from 2012 to 2015 were retrospectively reviewed and outcomes were followed until 2017...

Neurological disability is often associated with feeding and gastrointestinal disorders leading to malnutrition and growth failure. Assessment of nutritional status represents the first step in the clinical evaluation of children with neurological disability. The European Society of Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition (ESPGHAN) recently issued a consensus statement on gastrointestinal and nutritional management in children with neurological disability. Here we critically review and address implications of this consensus for clinical practice, including assessment and monitoring of nutritional status, definition of nutritional requirements, diagnosis and treatment of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease, and indications for and modalities of nutritional support...

Gastric volvulus is an abnormal, potentially life-threatening, torsion of the stomach. The presence of complications such as hemoperitoneum increases the diagnostic urgency; however it can also mask the presentation of gastric volvulus. We encountered a 66-year-old female who presented with symptomatic gastric outlet obstruction and was found to have hemoperitoneum and splenic avulsion on imaging. In our case, hemoperitoneum was a clinical red herring as initial imaging concentrated on the presence of hemoperitoneum and was nondiagnostic of gastric volvulus...
