Cancer patients treated with radiotherapy (RT) could develop severe late side effects that affect their quality of life. Long-term bowel complications after RT are mainly characterized by a transmural fibrosis that could lead to intestinal obstruction. Today, surgical resection is the only effective treatment. However, preoperative RT increases the risk of anastomotic leakage. In this study, we attempted to use mesenchymal stromal cells from adipose tissue (Ad-MSCs) to improve colonic anastomosis after high-dose irradiation...

HISTORY AND FINDINGS UPON ADMISSION:  A 50-year-old man presented at the emergency unit with abdominal pain in the right lower quadrant and dysuria. He described an increase in pain during micturition. EXAMINATIONS:  After multiple examinations (CT-scan, MR-scan, ileocolonoscopy) were performed to no avail, a toothpick was detected in the terminal ileum during an ultrasound scan of the small intestine. Prompted elevation of intra-abdominal pressure led to migration of the radiolucent sharp foreign body into the wall of the urinary bladder, inducing pain...

Anastomotic leak (AL) is a serious complication of intestinal surgery with various predisposing factors. This study aims to assess several risk factors associated with AL after small intestinal and colonic anastomoses through a multivariate analysis. Two hundred twenty-four patients (126 males) with intestinal anastomosis of a median age of 44 years were reviewed. Independent factors associated with AL were male gender (OR = 2.59, P  = 0.02), chronic liver disease (CLD) (OR = 8.03, P  < 0.0001), more than one associated comorbidity (OR = 5...

In the present study, we evaluated the utility of an intraluminal agarose stent (IAS) for end-to-end intestinal anastomoses in rabbits. Female New Zealand white rabbits (n = 14) underwent conventional sutured anastomosis (CSA) with or without an IAS. IAS were used to maintain the luminal diameter for more rapid and accurate suturing, and then was squeezed transluminally to crush it into fragments, which passed through the intestines and were eliminated. The rabbits were euthanized on postoperative day 21. At necropsy, the anastomoses were assessed for adhesion formation, stenosis, and bursting pressure and were examined histologically for collagen content and blood vessel formation...

PURPOSE: The safety and effectiveness of a stapled intestinal anastomosis in adults, children, and infants is well documented. However, in neonates it is not well validated. We hypothesized that premature infants who received a stapled bowel anastomosis utilizing endoscopic staplers had similar outcomes compared to patients with a handsewn anastomosis. METHODS: A retrospective study was performed reviewing premature infants who underwent an intestinal anastomosis over a 4-year period...

OBJECTIVE: Ileal transposition (IT) procedure leads to higher secretion of incretin hormones what is associated with a beneficial metabolic effect. However, IT will also have an influence on the related jejunum and ileum function. The aim of this research was to investigate the morphology of the jejunum and transposed ileum with the use of light and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) in order to determine the local alternations in the intestine resulting from the transposition. METHODS: Twenty male, 8-week-old, obese Zucker rats underwent IT and six of them sham surgery...

INTRODUCTION: Anastomotic leakage after gastrointestinal surgery is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality. Esophagogastric and colorectal anastomoses are vulnerable to leakage. Extended knowledge of growth factors and their receptors is needed to understand anatomic healing. METHODS: The expression pattern of vascular growth factor receptor (VEGFR1-3), epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), platelet-derived growth factor receptor (PDGFRα/β) and keratinocyte growth factor receptor (KGFR) were analyzed by semiquantitative-PCR in the rat intestinal tract and in esophagogastric anastomosis 5d after surgery...
