INTRODUCTION: Gastric tumors confined to mucosa and submucosa can be resected with endoscopic resection techniques. They include endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) or endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) [1, 2]. These techniques can be challenging when the tumor is large or is near the gastroesophageal (GE) junction. Transgastric resection is a novel technique of removing gastric tumors that are unresectable by endoscopy due to their size and location. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We present a case of a 41-year-old male where a suspicious appearing lesion near the GE junction was removed using combined trans-gastric laparoscopic and endoscopic technique...

In ventricular myocytes, the physiological function of stromal interaction molecule 1 (STIM1), an endo/sarcoplasmic reticulum (ER/SR) Ca(2+) sensor, is unclear with respect to its cellular localization, its Ca(2+)-dependent mobilization, and its action on Ca(2+) signaling. Confocal microscopy was used to measure Ca(2+) signaling and to track the cellular movement of STIM1 with mCherry and immunofluorescence in freshly isolated adult rat ventricular myocytes and those in short-term primary culture. We found that endogenous STIM1 was expressed at low but measureable levels along the Z-disk, in a pattern of puncta and linear segments consistent with the STIM1 localizing to the junctional SR (jSR)...

We present a case of endogenous fungal endophthalmitis arising as a complication of fungal septicaemia following gastrointestinal surgery, and subsequent treatment with endoluminal vacuum therapy (Endo-SPONGE, B Braun Medical Ltd). Our patient developed a pre-sacral collection due to an anastomotic leak post ileoanal pouch formation. Despite treatment with Endo-sponges and antibiotics, the patient suffered recurrent sepsis and the cavity failed to reduce in size. He developed red eyes and blurred vision, leading to the diagnosis of fungal endophthalmitis...

Mahesh Kumar Goenka, Usha Goenka
Perforations, leaks and fistula involving gastrointestinal (GI) tract are increasing encountered in clinical practice. There is a changing paradigm for their management with surgical approach being replaced by conservative approach including endoscopic therapy. Clips (through the scope and over the scope) and covered stent are front runners for endotherapy for GI leaks and fistula. Over the scope clips introduced recently, can treat larger defects compared to through the scope clips. Covered stents are suited for larger defects and those associated with luminal narrowing...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Anastomotic leakage is major complication of colorectal surgery. Total parenteral nutrition (TPN) and fasting are conservative treatments for leakage in the absence of peritonitis in Japan. Elemental diet (ED) jelly is a completely digested formula and is easily absorbed without secretion of digestive juices. The purpose of this study was to assess the safety of ED jelly in management of anastomotic leakage. METHODOLOGY: Six hundred and two patients who underwent elective surgery for left side colorectal cancer from January 2008 to December 2011 were included in the study...

Activation of N-methyl-d-aspartic acid (NMDA) receptors followed by a large Ca(2+) influx is thought to be a mechanism of glaucoma-induced neuronal cell death. It is possible that damage-associated molecular patterns leak from injured cells, such as adenosine triphosphate, causing retinal ganglion cell death in glaucoma. In the present study, we histologically investigated whether antagonists of the P2X7 receptor protected against NMDA-induced retinal injury in the rat in vivo. Under ketamine/xylazine anesthesia, male Sprague-Dawley rats were subjected to intravitreal injection of NMDA...

BACKGROUND: Lung lobectomy is necessary in neonatal patients for the treatment of a variety of congenital bronchopulmonary malformations. The working space required for traditional stapling devices limits their use in pediatric video-assisted thoracoscopic (VATS) lung lobectomy. The use of Hem-o-lok clips (Teleflex Medical Inc. Research Triangle Park, NC) has been described for a number of applications in minimally invasive surgery and may provide an alternative to traditional stapling devices for bronchial closure...

Calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase (CaMK) activation induces mitochondrial biogenesis in response to increasing cytosolic calcium concentrations. Calcium leak from the ryanodine receptor (RyR) is regulated by reactive oxygen species (ROS), which is increased with high-fat feeding. We examined whether ROS-induced CaMKII-mediated signaling induced skeletal muscle mitochondrial biogenesis in selected models of lipid oversupply. In obese Zucker rats and high-fat-fed rodents, in which muscle mitochondrial content was upregulated, CaMKII phosphorylation was increased independent of changes in calcium uptake because sarco(endo)plasmic reticulum Ca(2+)-ATPase (SERCA) protein expression or activity was not altered, implicating altered sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) calcium leak in the activation of CaMKII...

The Ca(2+) uptake properties of the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) were compared between type I and type II fibres of vastus lateralis muscle of young healthy adults. Individual mechanically skinned muscle fibres were exposed to solutions with the free [Ca(2+)] heavily buffered in the pCa range (-log10[Ca(2+)]) 7.3-6.0 for set times and the amount of net SR Ca(2+) accumulation determined from the force response elicited upon emptying the SR of all Ca(2+). Western blotting was used to determine fibre type and the sarco(endo)plasmic reticulum Ca(2+)-ATPase (SERCA) isoform present in every fibre examined...

BACKGROUND: Multiple stapler firings during distal rectal division were associated with unduly long stapler line and anastomotic leakage after laparoscopic rectal resection. A simple and relatively easy technique to perform a safe transection of rectum is presented. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The extracorporeal ligation of the rectum just proximal to the cut end of the rectum before applying the linear stapling stapler facilitates the procedure and requires only a few firings of the stapler during the laparoscopic rectal resections...
