Inlet patches are sometimes seen during upper endoscopy, usually in the proximal esophagus. Complications of inlet patches can cause a wide array of symptoms and complications. A man presented with dysphagia and was found to have 2 rings in the upper esophagus, just above and below a circumferential inlet patch. The more distal ring caused a stenosis, which produced the symptoms. Savary dilation and treatment with a proton pump inhibitor led to symptom resolution. Pathology was missed on the patient's first endoscopy, highlighting the importance of looking for pathology throughout the entire esophagus, not just in the distal esophagus...

Dense Acropora cervicornis aggregations, or patches, have been documented within nearshore habitats in Southeast Florida (SE FL) despite close proximity to numerous anthropogenic stressors and subjection to frequent natural disturbance events. Limited information has been published concerning the distribution and abundance of A. cervicornis outside of these known dense patches. The first goal of this study was to conduct a spatially extensive and inclusive survey (9.78 km(2)) to determine whether A. cervicornis distribution in the nearshore habitat of SE FL was spatially uniform or clustered...

The association of complete atrial ventricular septal defect (cAVSD) with tetralogy of Fallot remains a complex malformation that involves both inlet and outlet components of the ventricles. The surgical treatment used to be, in the 1980s, a staged repair strategy due to the high mortality rate of first primary repairs (PRs). However, nowadays, PRs have better outcomes. Although double-patch procedures are widely performed, this article describes the single-patch approach for cAVSD repair with transatrial-transpulmonary repair of the Fallot component with preservation of the pulmonary valve...

Hemodynamics are believed to play an important role in the initiation of cerebral aneurysms. In particular, studies have focused on wall shear stress (WSS), which is a key regulator of vascular biology and pathology. In line with the observation that aneurysms predominantly occur at regions of high WSS, such as bifurcation apices or outer walls of vascular bends, correlations have been found between the aneurysm initiation site and high WSS. The aim of our study was to analyze the WSS field at an aneurysm initiation site that was neither a bifurcation apex nor the outer wall of a vascular bend...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: The cervical inlet patch (CIP) is an area of heterotopic gastric mucosa at the proximal esophagus, which can secrete both acid and mucus. Attributable symptoms include chronic globus sensation and sore throat. Previous studies have demonstrated improvement in symptoms after ablation using argon plasma coagulation. Our aim was to assess a through-the-scope radiofrequency ablation (RFA) catheter for ablation of symptomatic CIP. METHODS: Ten patients with endoscopically and histologically proven CIP and symptoms of globus or sore throat were included in the study...

OBJECTIVES: To determine the incidence of inlet patch (IP) and to assess the clinical and pathological features, role of the diagnostic workup in treatment decision making, efficacy of medical and endoscopic therapy, and natural history in a pediatric population. STUDY DESIGN: Consecutive patients aged <18 years (n = 1000) undergoing esophagogastroduodenoscopy were enrolled prospectively. Biopsy specimens were obtained from IPs and the proximal and distal esophagus, stomach, and duodenum...

This paper presents a general sub-structuring approach to predict the acoustic performance of ducted ventilation systems. The modeling principle is to determine the subsystem characteristics by calculating the transfer functions at their coupling interfaces, and the assembly is enabled by using a patch-based interface matching technique. For a particular example of a bended ventilation duct connecting an inlet and an outlet acoustic domain, a numerical model is developed to predict its sound attenuation performance...

OBJECTIVE: Tarlov cyst is an abnormal expansion of the spinal nerve sleeve, and it communicates with the subarachnoid cavity via a perineural fistula. This study presents our experience of a balloon-assisted fistula sealing procedure in treating Tarlov cyst. METHODS: Twenty-two patients with symptomatic Tarlov cysts were surgically treated. An emulsion balloon was placed into the lumbar subarachnoid cistern through a trocar, so as to temporarily block cerebrospinal fluid flow, then the thecal sac was opened and the inlet of the fistula was sealed by suture of a muscular patch and reinforced by fibrin glue...

BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS: Lugol's chromoendoscopy provides excellent sensitivity for the detection of early esophageal squamous cell neoplasms (ESCN), but its specificity is suboptimal. An endoscopy technique for real-time histology is required to decrease the number of unnecessary biopsies. This study aimed to compare the ESCN diagnostic capability of probed-based confocal laser endomicroscopy (pCLE) and dual focus narrow-band imaging (dNBI) in Lugol's voiding lesions. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients with a history of head and neck cancer without dysphagia were recruited...

Columnar epithelium in the distal part of the esophagus is generally related to Barrett's esophagus. Barrett's esophagus is a well-known premalignant lesion for adenocarcinoma of the esophagus. Therefore, its diagnosis and surveillance are important. Columnar epithelium in the esophagus other than Barrett's esophagus can be gastric heterotopia, which generally takes place in the upper part of the esophagus and is named inlet patch. The presence of gastric metaplasia in the distal part of the esophagus is rare and can cause misdiagnosis...

Esophageal adenocarcinomas usually develop in Barrett's esophagus, typically through the metaplasia-dysplasia-carcinoma sequence, but adenocarcinomas can occur from heterotopic gastric mucosa in cervical esophagus (inlet patch). This report describes the first case of synchronous presentation of adenocarcinoma arising from cervical inlet patch and Barrett's esophagus-related dysplasia in a 76-year-old man. Surveillance CT detected a 3-cm polypoid mass in the cervical esophagus. Endoscopic biopsies confirmed a diagnosis of adenocarcinoma of the cervical esophagus...

BACKGROUND: Heterotopic gastric mucosa is found in the proximal oesophagus, just below the upper oesophageal sphincter, and is encountered when the oesophagus is examined carefully during endoscopy. AIMS: In this study on paediatric patients, we aimed to determine the endoscopic prevalence of heterotopic gastric mucosa of the proximal oesophagus (HGMPO), to identify its macroscopic and histological characteristics and to evaluate its clinical features. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 1399 patients were examined...

Foci of heterotopic gastric mucosa have been identified at different sites in the human body and the most common location is the proximal esophagus which is referred to as cervical inlet patch (CIP). The true prevalence of CIP varies and it is usually incidental findings during endoscopy. Because CIP is always asymptomatic, it was believed to be of little clinical relevance. However, emerging studies have described the acid-secreting characteristics of heterotopic gastric mucosa and associations of CIP with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)...

AIM: In this study we aim to determine the frequency of Inlet Patch (IP) and its association to clinical symptoms and draw attention to be aware of this heterotopic gastric mucosa. METHODS: This study was a prospective case series that IP was detected in the upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. Patients with laringopharyngeal reflux symptoms underwent endoscopy between March 2009 and July 2012 in two different institutions. All the biopsies were obtained from if there is the IP lesion and antral or/and gastric mucosa...
