BACKGROUND: An impaired hormonal "ileo-colonic brake" may contribute to rapid gastric emptying, gastric hypersecretion, high ostomy losses, and the need for parenteral support in end-jejunostomy short bowel syndrome (SBS) patients with intestinal failure (IF). Liraglutide, a glucagon-like peptide 1 receptor agonist, may reduce gastric hypersecretion and dampen gastric emptying, thereby improving conditions for intestinal absorption. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In an 8-week, open-label pilot study, liraglutide was given subcutaneously once daily to 8 end-jejunostomy patients, aged 63...

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) usually presents in infancy with respiratory failure requiring urgent surgical correction. Mortality in this group of patients remains poor and persistent pulmonary hypertension is a significant contributor. It is therefore rare for patients to reach adulthood undiagnosed. CDH is often identified incidentally in adults but when symptoms arise, they relate to the organ involved, and include gastrointestinal symptoms of dyspepsia and obstruction, as well as respiratory complaints such as dyspnoea...

We reported the management of a life-threatening condition as a large tracheo-gastric fistula involved the carina, the left and the right bronchus that complicated Ivor Lewis esophagogastrectomy for esophageal cancer. An urgent right thoracotomy was performed and the tracheal defect was covered with a reversed pedicled pericardial patch reinforced with an intercostal muscle flap. Cervical esophagostomy and a feeding jejunostomy completed the operation. Five months later, the continuity of gastrointestinal tract was restored using a transverse colon...

BACKGROUND: Routine placement of jejunostomy tubes (JT) during pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) is controversial. METHODS: A retrospective chart review of patients undergoing PD from 1/1/08 through 12/31/14 was performed. The patients were divided into groups by placement of JT. Outcome measures were 90-day morbidity, 90-day mortality, length of stay, rate of delayed gastric emptying (DGE), and JT-specific complications. RESULTS: 256 patients were included...

PURPOSE: The surgical management of neonates with duodenal atresia (DA) involves re-establishment of intestinal continuity, either by duodeno-duodenostomy (DD) or by duodeno-jejunostomy (DJ). Although the majority of pediatric surgeons perform DD repair preferentially, we aimed to analyze the outcome of DA neonates treated with either surgical technique. METHODS: Following ethical approval (REB:1000047737), we retrospectively reviewed the charts of all patients who underwent DA repair between 2004 and 2014...

BACKGROUND: Despite the efficacy of pharmacotherapy for gastrointestinal ulcers, severe cases of bleeding or perforation due to gastrointestinal ulcers still occur. Giant duodenal ulcer perforation is an uncommon but difficult-to-manage pathology with a high mortality rate. We report two cases of giant duodenal ulcer perforation after neurosurgery for brainstem tumors that needed reoperation for gastric disconnection because of postoperative leakage and bleeding. CASE PRESENTATION: Both cases had undergone neurosurgery for brainstem tumors, and the patients were in a shock state for several days with peritonitis due to giant duodenal perforation...

Enterocutaneous fistulas (ECF) are a difficult and costly surgical complication to manage. The standard treatment of nil per os (NPO) and total paraenteral nutrition (TPN) is not well tolerated by patients. TPN is also known for complications associated with long term central venous catheterization and for high cost of prolonged hospital stay. We present two low output ECF cases successfully treated with viable cryopreserved placental membrane (vCPM) placed into the fistula tracts. One patient is a 59-year-old male with a low output ECF from a jejunostomy tube site four weeks after the surgery...

BACKGROUND: Patients undergoing upper gastrointestinal surgery often eat poorly post-operatively, despite dietetic input. A pilot study was conducted to examine the benefit of a 6 week nutritional supplementation via a feeding jejunostomy on fatigue, quality of life and independent living. METHODS: A feeding jejunostomy was placed routinely at oesophagectomy or total gastrectomy for cancer. At discharge, patients were randomised to nutritional supplementation (600 kcal/day) via their feeding jejunostomies or no jejunal supplement...

INTRODUCTION: The duodenum is the second most common location of intestinal diverticula following the colon (Juler et al., 1969) [1]. Only 1-5% of patients with duodenal diverticula become symptomatic (Oukachbi, 2013) [2]. The least common but most serious complication of duodenal diverticula is perforation, which has a mortality rate of 20% (Oukachbi, 2013; Yin et al., 2001; Song, 2015; Schnueriger et al., 2008) [2-5].

BACKGROUND: Feeding jejunostomy tubes (FJT) in patients undergoing resection of gastroesophageal cancers facilitate perioperative nutrition. Data regarding FJT use and complications are limited. STUDY DESIGN: A single institution review was performed for patients who underwent perioperative FJT placement for gastrectomy or esophagogastrectomy from 2007 to 2015. FJT-related and unrelated complications were evaluated. RESULTS: FJTs were inserted for total/completion gastrectomy (n = 49/117, 41...

Feeding-related adverse events after percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) such as aspiration pneumonia can impede the use of PEG. Percutaneous endoscopic transgastric jejunostomy (PEG-J) using large-bore jejunal tubes with gastric decompression function may improve outcomes by circumventing gastric passage during enteral nutrition and improving drainage of excessive gastric secretions. This report describes a case where PEG-J was successful in maintaining enteral tube feeding in a 72-year-old man when PEG feeding was not tolerated...

BACKGROUND: Pancreatico-enteric anastomotic (PEA) stenosis is one of the late complications following pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) and reported for benign diseases. Literature for PEA stenosis following PD for malignancy is very limited due to low survival. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Patients undergoing surgery for symptomatic, recurrent, obstructive pancreatitis due to PEA stenosis following PD for malignancy were retrospectively identified from the authors' prospective database between January 1997 and December 2014...

BACKGROUND: Signaling by fibroblast growth factor is critical for epithelial proliferation, differentiation, and the development of many organs, including the intestine. Fibroblast growth factor 10 and fibroblast growth factor 2c are upregulated after massive bowel resection during intestinal adaptation. This pathway is conserved highly. We hypothesized that inhibition of fibroblast growth factor signaling would impair intestinal adaptation in the zebrafish model of short bowel syndrome and allow insight into the negative regulation of this pathway...

Introduction Simulated laparoscopy training is limited by its low-quality image. A high-definition (HD) laparoscopic training box was developed under the present necessity of simulating advanced surgery. Objective To describe and test a new HD laparoscopic training box for advanced simulation training. Methods We describe the features and image quality of the new training box. The simulator was tested and then evaluated by a group of 76 expert surgeons using a 4-item questionnaire. To assess the effectiveness of training using this simulation box, 15 general surgery residents were trained to perform a laparoscopic jejuno-jejunostomy in a validated simulation program...

BACKGROUND: The procedure of a simple hepatectomy and a hepatectomy with an extrahepatic bile duct resection and subsequent choledocho-jejunostomy is largely different. However, these two procedures are sometimes included in the same category. There are no studies comparing postoperative course and liver regeneration rate after a major hepatectomy with and without an extrahepatic bile duct resection. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed medical records of 245 patients who underwent a right hepatectomy (RH, n = 55) or RH with an extrahepatic bile duct resection (RHEBR, n = 190)...

The authors present a case of a 38-year-old man with a 4-hour history of accidental removal of a jejunostomy balloon-tube replacement (PEG-18-BRT-S, Cook Medical Inc., Bloomington, USA). The patient had undergone a direct percutaneous endoscopic jejunostomy (DPEJ) ten months ago, before chemoradiotherapy treatment for an esophageal squamous-cell carcinoma (uT3N2cM0). His past medical condition included alcoholic liver disease and distal gastrectomy from a life-threatening duodenal bleeding ulcer.
