BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive treatment of long, multifocal ureteral strictures or failed pyeloplasty is challenging. Robot-assisted buccal mucosa graft ureteroplasty (RBU) is a technique for ureteral reconstruction that avoids the morbidity of bowel interposition or autotransplantation. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate outcomes for RBU in a multi-institutional cohort of patients treated for revision ureteropelvic junction obstruction and long or multifocal ureteral stricture at three tertiary referral centers...

BACKGROUND: Associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) is a two-stage procedure most frequently applied in the setting of an extended right-sided hemi-hepatectomy. Initial reports of high mortality have sparked debate regarding the safety and efficacy of the procedure. We describe a higher incidence of early post-operative bile duct strictures after ALPPS, a complication rarely seen after conventional liver resection. METHODS: An institutional review was conducted to assess the incidence of post-operative biliary strictures following conventional right-sided or extended right-sided hemi-hepatectomy and ALPPS...

Endoscopic placement of the plastic stent has been adopted as an initial treatment for chronic pancreatitis with pancreatic duct stricture. Stent fracture while attempting removal is one of the complications of stent exchange. The use of the unilateral-flange stent in these patients has never been reported. We investigated the outcomes associated with the use of this stent with regard to stent exchange and stent-related adverse events. From 2011 to 2015, 9 patients with chronic pancreatitis and main pancreatic duct (MPD) stricture treated with the unilateral-flange stent were included...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) is an effective procedure in the management of morbid obesity with variations in outcome, which are technique dependent. Anastomotic stricture remains an important complication. The aim of this study was to assess the long-term outcome of patients undergoing either a linear-stapled anastomosis (LSA) or circular-stapled anastomosis (CSA) with an emphasis on postoperative stricture formation and excess body weight loss (EBWL). METHODS: Medical records of all patients who underwent bariatric surgery between 2008 and 2013 at a single bariatric surgical center were reviewed...

INTRODUCTION: The Malone appendicostomy is a continent channel used for antegrade enemas. It requires daily cannulation and is susceptible to stenosis. We use an indwelling low-profile balloon button tube inserted through the appendix into the cecum for antegrade enemas. We hypothesized that this method is effective at managing constipation or fecal incontinence and is associated with a low rate of stenosis. METHODS: Children who underwent laparoscopic appendicostomy balloon button placement at our institution from January 2011 to April 2017 were identified...

REVIEW
M Austen, J Breul, S Tritschler
Urethral strictures are often located in the bulbar urethra, and bulbar strictures are commonly due to urethral trauma. Diagnosis is confirmed by radiographic imaging of the urethra. In cases of short primary bulbar strictures, a simple internal urethrotomy may be curative. In contrast, open surgery should be performed in long segment or recurrent strictures because recurrence rates are near 100% in these cases. Depending of the actual findings and comorbidities, end-to-end anastomosis, graft urethroplasty, flap urethroplasty, or perineal urethrostomy may be used...

We report the case of a 67-year-old woman presenting with epigastric pain. Computed tomography identified diffuse phlegmonous esophagitis. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy revealed multiple perforations in the mucosal layer of the esophagus. A large amount of pus was drained internally through the gut. The patient was treated with antibiotics and early jejunostomy feeding. Although phlegmonous esophagitis is a potentially fatal disease, the patient was successfully treated medically with only a minor complication (esophageal stricture)...

Background/Aims: Primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) is a chronic, progressive hepatobiliary disorder characterized by extensive fibrosis and stricturing of the intra- and/or extra-hepatic bile ducts: Previous studies have documented low phosphatylcholine (PC) concentrations in PSC bile. The aim of this study was to determine whether low PC levels in bile facilitate toxic bile acid induced injury of biliary tract epithelial cells resulting in enhanced transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-β) expression and increased collagen synthesis by myofibroblasts...

Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) permits en bloc removal of superficial oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). However, post-procedure stricture is common after ESD for widespread tumours, and multiple endoscopic balloon dilation (EBD) procedures are required. We aimed to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of endoscopic transplantation of tissue-engineered autologous oral mucosal epithelial cell sheets that had been transported by air over a distance of 1200 km in controlling postprocedural oesophageal stricture...

BACKGROUND: The sensitivity of brush cytology for biliary strictures has typically been low, usually 30%-60%. We compared the cellular yield and diagnostic accuracy using a new cytology brush (n = 16) versus standard biliary brushings (n = 16) in 32 patients who underwent endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) with brushings for evaluation of a biliary stricture for malignancy. METHODS: We performed retrospective chart reviews of 16 consecutive ERCPs with brushings performed for the cytologic evaluation of a biliary stricture for malignancy using the new cytology brush between January 2016 and February 2017 at our institution...

Benjamin Martin, Evelyn Geok Peng Ong
AIMS: Intraoperative cholangiograms (IOC) during laparoscopic cholecystectomy have been advocated to detect biliary anomalies and intraductal calculi. However, IOC increases operative time and patient irradiation, and therefore is not universally used. We hypothesise selective IOC may be a valuable tool in children. METHODS: A retrospective case note review was performed of all children who underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy at a single institution by a single surgeon between January 2011 and March 2017...

BACKGROUND: Anastomotic stricture is a common complication following esophageal atresia (EA) repair. Patients with a recalcitrant stricture may require surgical intervention. The technique of re-anastomosis after stricture resection can affect patient outcomes. STUDY DESIGN: EA patients who underwent anastomotic stricture resection from July 2010 to February 2017 were reviewed. Patients after stricture resection in which slide esophagoplasty was performed were compared to the conventional approach of end-to-end anastomosis...

OBJECTIVE: Precise pre-operative urethral stricture characterization is important for surgical planning. A period of urethral rest by suprapubic cystostomy tube may aid in stricture characterization and may affect the surgical approach. We compare the radiographic characterization of anterior urethral strictures by fellowship-trained reconstructive urologists before and after a period of urethral rest. We then determine how this changed the planned operative approach. METHODS: We queried our prospectively maintained urethroplasty database at the University of Minnesota for men with anterior urethral stricture who had retrograde urethrogram (RUG) and voiding cystourethrogram (VCUG) both before and after pre-operative suprapubic cystostomy tube (SPC) placement (n=29)...
