BACKGROUND: Duodenal ulcer perforation (DUP) is a severe acute abdominal disease. Mean platelet volume (MPV) and platelet distribution width (PDW) are two platelet parameters, participating in many inflammatory processes. This study aims to investigate the relation of MPV/PDW and DUP. METHODS: A total of 165 patients were studied retrospectively, including 21 females and 144 males. The study included two groups: 87 normal patients (control group) and 78 duodenal ulcer perforation patients (DUP group)...

One of the most prevalent parasitic infestation is ascariasis which poses a great challenge to both the person being infested with and the treating medical team. We present here a case of round worm (Ascaris lumbricoides) infestation. A 40-year-old male, weighing 60 kg, diagnosed as perforation peritonitis, was scheduled for emergency exploratory laparotomy. The round worm was crawling out from duodenal perforation vent during laparotomy confirming the infestation. Patient later developed bronchospasm in post-extubation period and was managed accordingly...

This is a randomized, double-blind, single-dose, parallel group phase 1 study to assess pharmacokinetic similarity, safety, and tolerability of BS-503a, a proposed bevacizumab biosimilar. A total of 114 male healthy subjects were randomized (1:1) to receive a single 3 mg/kg intravenous dose of either BS-503a or bevacizumab (Avastin(®)). Pharmacokinetic (PK) blood samples were collected up to Day 78, and serum drug concentrations were measured using a validated enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Pharmacokinetic similarity was evaluated using area under the serum concentration-time curve from zero to infinity (AUC inf) as a primary PK parameter, and maximum serum concentration (Cmax) and area under the serum concentration-time curve from zero to the last measurable time (AUC last) as secondary PK parameters...

Periampullary duodenal diverticula are common and are usually asymptomatic. However, complications like biliary or pancreatic obstruction, duodenal obstruction, perforation, or hemorrhage can occur occasionally. Obstructive jaundice is usually due to biliary stones and periampullary tumors. Rarely, duodenal diverticula may present with obstructive jaundice in the absence of cholelithiasis or other detectable obstacle. This condition is called Lemmel's syndrome. There are only few case reports of this rare condition...

Diverticulitis and diverticular abscesses are rare and potentially serious complications of duodenal diverticulum. These conditions often lead to perforation of the diverticulum, necessitating surgical treatment. There have been few reported cases of duodenal diverticulitis with or without perforation treated by endoscopic drainage. Here, we present a case of duodenal diverticulitis accompanied by abscess formation that was treated successfully with an endoscopic nasobiliary drainage catheter. We suggest this treatment could be an acceptable option for selected patients with a localized abscess that is resistant to conservative treatment...

We present a case in which the accidental ingestion of a toothpick caused duodenal perforation and small intestinal obstruction. A 58-year-old man visited our emergency room with acute abdominal pain. Computed tomography (CT) showed obstructive ileus as well as a foreign body penetrating the duodenum, which was identified as a toothpick and removed endoscopically. Unenhanced CT was superior in detecting the object. The patient has been doing well since the operation.

BACKGROUND: The antenatal diagnosis of a combined esophageal atresia without tracheoesophageal fistula and duodenal atresia with or without gastric perforation is a rare occurrence. These diagnoses are difficult and can be suspected on ultrasound by nonspecific findings including a small stomach and polyhydramnios. Fetal magnetic resonance imaging adds significant anatomical detail and can aid in the diagnosis of these complicated cases. Upon an extensive literature review, there are no reports documenting these combined findings in a twin pregnancy...

Use of endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) technique has been widespread. However, ESD of lesions in the duodenum is technically more challenging than ESD in other parts of the GI tract because it is difficult to keep the submucosal layer lifted. Therefore, the procedure is associated with severe complications, such as delayed bleeding and perforation. [1] We present a case of duodenal ESD in which traction method was used with an S-O clip (Zeon Medical Co., Ltd., Tokyo, Japan) (Figure 1) [2] to visualize the submucosal layer clearly...

BACKGROUND: In type 1 multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN1), esophageal diseases association with excessive gastrin secretion in Zollinger-Ellison syndrome (ZES) sometimes develop. Here, we reported a case of MEN1/ZES, who developed dysphagia due to reflux esophagitis with severe esophageal stricture. Treatment for his esophageal stricture and ZES was discussed. CASE PRESENTATION: A 43-year-old man with progressive dysphagia and diarrhea was referred to the teaching hospital...

Emergency pancreatico-duodenectomy(EPD) is a very rare procedure and few reports are present in medical literature. It is an uncommon approach, usually used for emergency surgical treatment of abdominal trauma that involves the head of the pancreas or the duodenum, but it is also a surgical tool for the treatment of ruptured aneurysms, bleeding pseudocysts, duodenal perforations, uncontrollable hemorrhage from ulcers and tumors, severe infectious complications of acute pancreatitis or endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography related complications (1,2)...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Eradication of sporadic non-ampullary duodenal adenomas (SNADAs) is essential due to their high rate of malignant transformation. Endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) techniques are the alternative to the traditional surgical treatments of SNADAs. There are very limited data on the safety and efficacy of cap-assisted EMR (C-EMR) in the treatment of SNADA. METHODS: The medical records of patients who underwent C-EMR for SNADAs between July 2002 and April 2013 were retrospectively reviewed...

Duodenal atresia is the third cause of intrinsic intestinal obstruction in the neonatal period. Typical presentation includes early-onset vomiting of gastric or bilious content, abdominal distension and poor weight gain. If the obstruction is incomplete, as in a perforated duodenal diaphragm, presenting symptoms tend to appear later and be nonspecific, so diagnosis is usually delayed. We present the case of a 9-year-old girl with a history of biliary postprandial vomiting from the infancy period, without any impact on the nutritional status, managed symptomatically...

We report a case of gastroschisis in male twins. Both twins were preterm and low birth weight, with intestinal malrotation; they were diagnosed by antenatal ultrasound at 20 weeks of gestation. Immediately after delivery, they underwent evaluation and early surgical one-stage repair under anesthesia. One of the twins was found to have duodenal perforation at laparotomy, at the horizontal part near Treitz ligament. Both twins stayed in hospital for 30 days and were in good health at discharge.

INTRODUCTION: Peptic ulcer perforation (PPU) is a common surgical emergency and the mortality rate ranges 10% to 40%, especially in elderly patients. Laparoscopic repair achieved encouraging results. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We enrolled patients performing surgical repair for PPU from January 2007 to December 2015 in our surgical unit. The aim of this retrospective observational study was to compare the results of PPU laparoscopic repair with open technique. The following characteristics of patients were evaluated: age, sex and American Society of Anesthesiologists classification...

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) carries a small but significant risk of perforation. Recent data suggest that select patients can be managed non-operatively. We sought to evaluate the management of ERCP perforations at our community medical center. METHODS: ERCPs performed from 2004 to 2015 were reviewed. RESULTS: Twenty-one of 2423 patients who underwent ERCP had a perforation (0.9%). ERCP procedures included balloon sweep with/without sphincterotomy and pancreatic duct stent (71%), common bile duct brushing (10%), and pancreatic duct stenting (5%)...

Purpose: Ras/MEK/ERK pathway activation is common in oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma (OCSCC). We performed a neoadjuvant (preoperative) trial to determine the biomarker and tumor response of OCSCC to MEK inhibition with trametinib.Experimental Design: Patients with stage II-IV OCSCC received trametinib (2 mg/day, minimum 7 days) prior to surgery. Primary tumor specimens were obtained before and after trametinib to evaluate immunohistochemical staining for p-ERK1/2 and CD44, the primary endpoint. Secondary endpoints included changes in clinical tumor measurements and metabolic activity [maximum standardized uptake values (SUVmax) by F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/CT), and in tumor downstaging...

The mortality in elderly patients over the age of 80 years with peptic ulcers in the case of complications, such as bleeding and perforation is higher than in the general population. Duodenal ulcers are associated with Helicobacter pylori infections in 90% of cases and in 70% of gastric ulcers. The treatment of elderly patients is often difficult due to multimorbidity and polypharmacy and necessitates a geriatric approach. Ulcers are often caused by medication with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and acetylsalicylic acid...
