PURPOSE: Gastrointestinal adenomyoma is a rare benign tumor most frequently located in the stomach. The differential diagnosis is wide because of its large clinical spectrum and unspecific radiological findings. Surgical excision is both diagnostic and therapeutic. CASE REPORT: A 49-days old girl presented with nonbilious vomiting of 48 hours of evolution. Infantile hypertrofic pyloric stenosis was suspected. Ultrasound showed a nonobstructive nodular lesion in the anterior pyloric wall...

BACKGROUND: Most patients with congenital nephrotic syndrome (CNS) exhibit a failure to thrive. A previous study reported that five of 41 (12 %) infants with CNS had hypertrophic pyloric stenosis (HPS) requiring surgery. The reason for this is undetermined, and there are few reports regarding the relationship between these conditions or their clinical course. CASE DIAGNOSIS/TREATMENT: We present the case of a 4-month-old girl with CNS. She did not show typical manifestations of HPS, but thickened mucosal and submucosal layers and hypertrophy of the pyloric muscle were detected by repeated ultrasound examinations prior to the diagnosis of HPS...

The patient was a 56-year-old woman who had experienced epigastralgia and dorsal pain several times over the last 20 years. She was admitted for a diagnosis of acute cholecystitis, and severe intra- and extrahepatic bile duct dilatation with inner air density was noted. No papilla of Vater was present in the descending duodenum, and 2 small holes were present in the pyloric ring. Bile excretion from one of the small holes was observed under forward-viewing endoscope. It was considered that the pancreatic and bile ducts separately opened into the pyloric ring...

BACKGROUND: Changing patterns of referral and management of pediatric surgical conditions, including hypertrophic pyloric stenosis (HPS), have recently been described and often relate to comfort with early nonoperative management, anesthesia and corrective surgery. Travelling distance required for treatment at pediatric centres can also be burdensome for families. We assessed referral patterns for HPS in the maritime provinces of Canada over 10 years to quantify the burden on families travelling for surgical care...

A 24-day old female Nigerian neonate presented with protracted vomiting, fever and dehydration but without palpable abdominal tumour or visible gastric peristalsis. There was no derangement of serum electrolytes. The initial working diagnosis was Late-Onset Sepsis but abdominal ultrasonography showed features consistent with the diagnosis of IHPS. This case report highlights the atypical presentation of this surgical condition and the need to investigate cases of protracted vomiting in the newborn with at least, ultrasonography to minimize complications and reduce the risk of mortality in a resource-poor setting...

Adult-onset hypertrophic pyloric stenosis (HPS) is a rare anomaly that can be idiopathic or related to underlying gastric pathology. We describe a case of a 25-year-old man with history of human immunodeficiency virus and osteoglophonic dysplasia who presented with pain and swelling at a gastrostomy site. Computed tomography and upper gastrointestinal barium swallow demonstrated gastric distention and stricture at the distal portion of the gastric antrum. An ultrasound detected HPS. The patient eventually required pyloromyotomy for treatment...

BACKGROUND: This study investigates whether health disparities exist in infants with hypertrophic pyloric stenosis (HPS), to identify factors affecting definitive treatment, and if more morbidity occurs. METHODS: A 6-year retrospective analysis was performed on infants with HPS. Analysis of variance was used to evaluate the impact of socioeconomic factors on disease severity and hospitalization. General linear models were used to assess the impact of risk factors on the outcomes...

Ultrasound is an invaluable imaging modality in the evaluation of pediatric gastrointestinal pathology; it can provide real-time evaluation of the bowel without the need for sedation or intravenous contrast. Recent improvements in ultrasound technique can be utilized to improve detection of bowel pathology in children: Higher resolution probes, color Doppler, harmonic and panoramic imaging are excellent tools in this setting. Graded compression and cine clips provide dynamic information and oral and intravenous contrast agents aid in detection of bowel wall pathology...

BACKGROUND: Plate developer is a chemical used in the printing industry and is a corrosive alkaline agent containing sodium metasilicate as the main substance. Plate developer poisoning is rare. Literature search revealed only a single case report of fatal sodium metasilicate poisoning (Z Rechtsmed 94(3):245-250, 1985). There are no reports of acute kidney injury related to ingestion of sodium metasilicate containing substances. CASE REPORT: A 52-year-old Sri Lankan male with a history of hypertension and affective disorder presented following ingestion of about 150 ml of plate developer solution...

INTRODUCTION: Hypertrophic pyloric stenosis is a commonly encountered pediatric surgical issue. Initially treated with open surgical techniques, many pediatric surgeons have adopted the minimally invasive approach using laparoscopy. However, some concerns exist that the rate of incomplete pyloromyotomy is elevated in laparoscopy. We propose a new technique to assess the adequacy of laparoscopic pyloromyotomy. METHODS: Adequacy of laparoscopic pyloromyotomy was assessed by confirming that the top of the serosa on one side of the pylorus has adequate freedom to reach the bottom of the muscle on other side...

PURPOSE: This study aims to compare the outcomes of pyloromyotomy for infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis (IHPS) in children with and without congenital heart disease (CHD). METHODS: A retrospective, single pediatric center, case-control, matched cohort study was performed over 10years. A case of IHPS with CHD was paired with control patients of IHPS without CHD, matched by age and gender. Perioperative morbidity, 30-day mortality, length of hospital stay, and hospital cost were compared...

Hypertrophic pyloric stenosis is a common surgical cause of vomiting in infants. Following appropriate fluid resuscitation, the mainstay of treatment is pyloromyotomy. This article reviews the aetiology and pathophysiology of hypertrophic pyloric stenosis, its clinical presentation, the role of imaging, the preoperative and postoperative management, current surgical approaches and non-surgical treatment options. Contemporary postoperative feeding regimens, outcomes and complications are also discussed.

We report late-onset hypertrophic pyloric stenosis in a 17-year-old female. She presented with abdominal pain and an episode of upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage and subsequently developed gastric outlet obstruction. Work-up revealed circumferential pyloric thickening, delayed gastric emptying, and a stenotic, elongated pyloric channel. Biopsies showed benign gastropathy, negative for Helicobacter pylori, without eosinophilic infiltrates. Botulinum toxin injection provided limited relief. Diagnostic laparoscopy confirmed the hypertrophic pylorus and we performed laparoscopic pyloromyotomy...

A 79-year-old man was admitted to our hospital to determine the cause of his melena. He underwent esophagogastric endoscopy and computed tomography, revealing a submucosal tumor on the anterior wall of the gastric antrum with multiple liver metastases. Endoscopic biopsy revealed a large cell neuroendocrine cell carcinoma. A subtotal gastrostomy was performed to prevent pyloric stenosis and anemia caused by tumor hemorrhage. Previous studies on gastric neuroendocrine carcinoma reported poor prognosis. Large- and small-cell types of gastric neuroendocrine carcinomas were differentiated for the first time in the 14th edition of the Japanese Classification of Gastric Carcinoma...

AIM: The aim of this study was to explore the efficacy and safety of treating idiopathic hypertrophic pyloric stenosis with sequential therapy (ST). METHODS: From January 2010 to June 2013, 49 children with idiopathic hypertrophic pyloric stenosis were divided into two groups to accept either atropine ST (ST group, n = 26) or laparoscopic surgery (operation group, n = 23). The remission rate of vomiting, complications, hospital stay and medical expenditure were compared between the two groups...

Infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis is the most commonly encountered surgical disease among pediatric patients. Incomplete pyloromyotomy is not uncommon complication of pyloromyotomy. However, recurrent pyloric stenosis is extremely rare. Up until now, there are only five cases reported in the English literature. We report a child with recurrent pyloric stenosis who was managed by redo pyloromyotomy.

PURPOSE: To compare the learning curves for mastering OP and LP surgical techniques, in terms of effects on completion times and postoperative outcomes/complications. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was performed for 198 patients with hypertrophic pyloric stenosis. The learning curves were in regard to two groups of surgeons: three of whom performed 106 OPs while three others performed 92 LPs. Treatment-related complications were divided into two categories: specific complications relating to the pyloromyotomy and non-specific complications...
