Coarctation of the aorta (CoA) is a relatively common congenital heart anomaly, and bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) is a common congenital heart disease that coexists with CoA. In larger children and adults with CoA, transcatheter intervention has gained acceptance, but for surgical high-risk patients with aortic stenosis, the use of transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has been established. Recently, although favorable data have been reported for TAVI when treating BAV, simultaneous transcatheter intervention for CoA and BAV will prove to be a challenge because of the unique anatomy involved requires multiple procedural steps and also has problems of site access...

Mucoceles of the paranasal sinus can be managed endoscopically with an extremely low recurrence rate. Frontal sinus mucoceles can sometimes be prevented from closing and reforming by stenting, which to the best of our knowledge has not yet been reported in the maxillary sinus. We describe the cases of 5 patients-3 men and 2 women, aged 47 to 75 years (mean: 59.6)-with a recurrent and intractable maxillary sinus mucocele that was managed with biliary T-tube stenting. The indications for stenting included recurrent episodes of mucocele with or without a lateral location with a relatively thick bony wall...

Approximately half of the patients diagnosed with oesophageal cancer present with unresectable or metastatic disease. Treatment for these patients aims to control dysphagia and other cancer-related symptoms, improve quality of life and prolong survival. In the past 25 years, modestly improved outcomes have been achieved in the treatment of patients with inoperable non-metastatic cancer who are medically not fit for surgery or have unresectable, locally advanced disease. Concurrent chemoradiotherapy offers the best outcomes in these patients...

Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) is a relatively rare vascular disease characterized by hepatic outflow tract obstruction, and image-guided endovascular treatment, namely percutaneous angioplasty, stenting, and transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS), has proven to be effective treatment modalities to alleviate symptoms and markedly improve the prognosis of the disease. Specifically, a step-wise approach is recommended, i.e., angioplasty and stenting are the prioritized choice for patients with membranous obstruction and short-length stenosis, whereas TIPS is the option for patients who fail this treatment...

Heterotopic pancreas (HP) is a relatively uncommon entity that is defined as pancreatic tissue without a true anatomical or vascular connection to the pancreas. HP does not cause symptoms in most cases but can occasionally produce various manifestations, including nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and even heterotopic pancreatitis. Here, we report an unusual case in which heterotopic pancreatitis complicated by the formation of a pseudocyst that caused gastric outlet obstruction was diagnosed based on serum hyperamylasemia and findings from endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS)-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) cytology...

More than half of primary lung cancers are not resectable at diagnosis and 40% of deaths may be secondary to loco-regional disease. Many of these patients suffer from symptoms related to airways obstruction. Indications for therapeutic endoscopic treatment are palliation of dyspnea and other obstructive symptoms in advanced cancerous lesions and cure of early lung cancer. Bronchoscopic management is also indicated for all those patients suffering from benign or minimally invasive neoplasm who are not suitable for surgery due to their clinical conditions...
