BACKGROUND: Self-expandable metallic stents in the upper gastrointestinal tract are used for treating malignant esophageal or gastroduodenal outlet obstructions and fistulas. Recently, self-expandable metallic stent use has been expanded to benign esophageal or gastroduodenal strictures and post-operative complications. However, there is scarce data available regarding efficacy, long-term complications, and outcomes with the use of self-expandable metallic stent in benign disease, especially post-gastrectomy complications...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Dysphagia is a debilitating symptom in patients with inoperable esophageal cancer contributing to poor quality of life and worsening nutritional status. The 2 most commonly used palliative modalities for dysphagia are radiation therapy (RT) and esophageal stent placement. However, RT is limited by adverse events (AEs) and total dose, and stent placement has a high rate of AEs including reflux, migration, and chest pain. A relatively new modality of liquid nitrogen endoscopic spray cryotherapy has been described as salvage when other options have been exhausted and when patients are no longer receiving systemic therapy...

Cerebral hyperperfusion syndrome (CHS) is serious complication after carotid artery stenting (CAS) caused by decreased cerebral vasoreactivity (CVR) due to long standing hypoperfusion of the brain. We hypothesized that partial dilatation of carotid stenosis would allow the recovery of CVR, and prevent CHS when definitive angioplasty with stent is performed afterward. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of staged CAS in patients with severe carotid artery stenosis with evident hemodynamic compromise in regard to preventing hyperperfusion syndrome...

Symptomatic obstruction related to malignant involvement of large veins may occur in central veins both in the thoracic and pelvic regions, and in the abdominal region of the body. Both cases represent a therapeutic challenge, and endovascular revascularization, consisting of angioplasty and stent placement, is safe and effective. Superior vena cava stenting has become widespread in the management of occlusive venous disease. The percutaneous placement of large expandable metal stents allows rapid restoration of normal blood flow in the majority of patients, thus improving symptoms...

RATIONALE: Gastric metastasis from invasive lobular breast cancer is relatively rare, commonly presented among multiple metastases, several years after primary diagnosis of breast cancer. Importantly, gastric cancer that is synchronously presented with lobular breast cancer can be misdiagnosed as primary gastric cancer; therefore, accurate differential diagnosis is required. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 39-year-old woman was visited to our hospital because of right breast mass and progressive dyspepsia...

REVIEW
Mohamed S ElGuindy, Ahmed M ElGuindy
Aneurysmal coronary artery disease (ACAD) comprises both coronary artery aneurysms (CAA) and coronary artery ectasia (CAE). The reported prevalence of ACAD varies widely from 0.2 to 10%, with male predominance and a predilection for the right coronary artery (RCA). Atherosclerosis is the commonest cause of ACAD in adults, while Kawasaki disease is the commonest cause in children and adolescents, as well as in the Far East. Most patients are asymptomatic, but when symptoms do exist, they are usually related to myocardial ischemia...

Postthrombotic syndrome (PTS) is the most common complication after iliofemoral deep vein thrombosis. It reduces quality of life and increases deep vein thrombosis (DVT)-related costs. The clinical symptoms and severity of PTS may vary; the most common symptoms include edema, pain (venous claudication), hyperpigmentation, lipodermatosclerosis, and ulceration. PTS is based on the principle of outflow obstruction, which may be caused by venous hypertension and may lead to valvular damage and venous reflux or insufficiency...
