Endoscopic transluminal necrosectomy in necrotising pancreatitis: a systematic review.

We performed a systematic review to assess the outcome of endoscopic transluminal necrosectomy in necrotising pancreatitis with additional focus on indication, disease severity, and methodological quality of studies.

Endoscopic pancreatic necrosectomy.

The endoscopic pancreatic necrosectomy is a minimally invasive treatment option to remove pancreatic necrosis. This is one of the first applications of transluminal endoscopic surgery through a natural orifice (NOTES). This review will reveal the technical effectiveness, clinical effectiveness, indications, limitations and complications of endoscopic pancreatic necrosectomy.

Combined minimally invasive management of infected pancreatic necrosis: a case report.

Infected necrosis is a potentially fatal complication of necrotizing pancreatitis. Open surgical debridement is the mainstay management of infected pancreatic necrosis. Over the last decade minimally invasive techniques have been increasingly used for the treatment of infected pancreatic necrosis and their results are encouraging. However, the optimal technique of minimal access necrosectomy and the timing of intervention have not been established yet. Patients with septic complications of acute pancreatiti...

Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery and Upper Gastrointestinal Tract.

Since the first transgastric natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery was described, various applications and modified procedures have been investigated. Transgastric natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery for periotoneoscopy, cholecystectomy, and appendectomy all seem viable in humans, but additional studies are required to demonstrate their benefits and roles in clinical practice. The submucosal tunneling method enhances the safety of peritoneal access and gastric closure and minimizes the...

Endoscopic transgastric drainage of a gastric wall abscess after endoscopic submucosal dissection.

A 63-year-old woman was referred to our hospital for further examination because of an incidental finding of early gastric cancer. Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) was successfully performed for complete resection of the tumor. On the first post-ESD day, the patient suddenly complained of abdominal pain after an episode of vomiting. Abdominal computed tomography (CT) showed delayed perforation after ESD. The patient was conservatively treated with an intravenous proton pump inhibitor and antibiotics....

Acute necrotising pancreatitis associated with leptospirosis-a case report.

Acute Necrotizing Pancreatitis is a rare complication of leptospirosis and this association carries a high mortality rate. Only few cases have been reported in literature. We hereby report one such case we encountered.

Necrotizing arteritis in a human immunodeficiency virus-infected patient with lupus-like glomerulonephritis.

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-associated lupus-like glomerulonephritis (GN) is a chronic immune complex disease occurring in HIV-infected patients. Although the light, immunofluorescence, and electron microscopy findings indicate features of lupus nephritis, no evidence of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is observed in the affected patients. We present the case of a 45-year-old Caucasian woman with HIV infection who was admitted to the hospital with a nephrotic syndrome 10 years after the HIV diagno...

Chylous ascites as a consequence of idiopathic pancreatitis.

Chylous ascites (chyloperitoneum) is a rare clinical condition, characterized by an accumulation of lymph fluid in the peritoneal cavity. Most commonly it is associated with abdominal malignancy (usually lymphoma). We present an unusual case of a woman who developed a persistent pseudocyst and recurrent chylous ascites following acute necrotizing pancreatitis.

Pure natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) involving peroral endoscopic salpingo-oophorectomy (POESY).

Natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) is a surgical approach that uses natural orifices to gain access to areas of the body. In the present article, we describe the first transgastric pure NOTES salpingo-oophorectomy, which we call peroral endoscopic salpingo-oophorectomy (POESY).

Acute pancreatitis in pregnancy: a comparison of associated conditions, treatments and complications.

Abstract Objective: Acute pancreatitis is a rare condition in pregnancy. The aim of this study is to compare associated conditions, treatments and complications of pancreatitis in pregnant and age-matched non-pregnant controls. Methods: We carried out a population-based retrospective cohort study using the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project Nationwide Inpatient Sample (HCUP-NIS) from 2003 to 2010. A cohort of pregnant women with acute pancreatitis was created and compared to a created age-matched cohor...

Necrotizing soft tissue infections developing from pressure ulcers.

Necrotizing soft tissue infections (STIs) are serious complications that may arise from pressure ulcers. However, there are few studies on this important issue. In addition, diagnostic criteria for necrotizing STIs developing from pressure ulcers and infected pressure ulcers are not well established.

Acute pancreatitis and development of pancreatic pseudo cyst after extra corporeal shock wave lithotripsy to a left renal calculus: A rare case with review of literature.

Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) is considered the standard of care for the treatment of small upper ureteric and renal calculi. A few centers have extended its use to the treatment of bile duct calculi and pancreatic calculi. The complication rates with SWL are low, resulting in its wide spread acceptance and usage. However, some of the serious complications reported in 1% of patients include acute pancreatitis, perirenal hematoma, urosepsis, venous thrombosis, biliary obstruction, bowel perfora...

Antioxidants Are Not Useful in Reducing Both Pain and Inflammation in Chronic Pancreatitis.

Pain is the main clinical symptom of chronic pancreatitis at its early stages; then the pain tends to disappear during the progression of the disease. Several options have been proposed to treat pain and inflammation in chronic pancreatitis; medical, endoscopic or surgical treatments have been considered, and the controversy surrounding their efficacy is ongoing. One medical option is to use antioxidants for both preventing and curing the flare-ups of chronic pancreatitis. The data regarding this treatment...

Intravenous Hydration for the Prevention of Post-Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography Pancreatitis.

A case of systemic lupus erythematosus with severe acute pancreatitis.

Abstract  A 39-year-old woman with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) developed severe acute pancreatitis during a well-controlled disease stage. Treatment with intraarterial injections of antipancreatic enzyme and a small amount of prednisone (20 mg/day) led to remission of the pancreatitis. Disease activity of the SLE did not flare up throughout the course of this treatment. The development of severe acute pancreatitis in SLE is rare. We discuss the cause of pancreatitis in SLE, and whether corticoste...


Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy with Transgastric Visualization: Another Step toward Totally NOTES Procedures.

Background. Laparoendoscopic single-site sleeve gastrectomy is gaining acceptance. However, totally natural orifice translumenal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) in morbidly obese patients is still controversial due to safety and technical issues. To this end, we have developed a technique for sleeve gastrectomy in which the surgical field view is achieved through transgastric approach and the operating channel will eventually be through the vagina to form a dual lumen totally NOTES procedure for sleeve gastrecto...

Autoimmune pancreatitis diagnosed using endoscopic ultrasound and a novel 19-gauge histology needle.

A case of obstructive jaundice due to autoimmune pancreatitis and a review of the literature.

A 33-year-old man presented with jaundice, mild pancreatitis, and some weight loss. Laboratory tests showed cholestatic icterus. Imaging revealed distal bile duct obstruction and a mass in the head of the pancreas suspicious for cancer. Besides the enlargement of the head, the whole pancreatic parenchyma was altered. Therefore, autoimmune pancreatitis was considered. Endoscopic ultrasound biopsy found pancreatic tissue with lymphoplasmacytic inflammation and fibrosis. IgG4 serum concentration was within nor...

Nutrition, Inflammation, and Acute Pancreatitis.

Acute pancreatitis is acute inflammatory disease of the pancreas. Nutrition has a number of anti-inflammatory effects that could affect outcomes of patients with pancreatitis. Further, it is the most promising nonspecific treatment modality in acute pancreatitis to date. This paper summarizes the best available evidence regarding the use of nutrition with a view of optimising clinical management of patients with acute pancreatitis.

Removal of Eroded Gastric Bands Using a Transgastric SILS Device.

Background. Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) is a popular method for the treatment of morbid obesity. One of the most feared complications is gastric band erosion which occurs with a reported incidence of 0.3 to 14%. Intragastric migrated bands are best managed by endoscopic removal. Recent case studies reported successful endoscopic removal of intragastric migrated bands, but it is not always possible. We report our first experience with a transgastric removal of eroded bands using a Single I...

Endoscopic papillectomy: Indications, techniques, and results.

Endoscopic papillectomy (EP) is currently accepted as a viable alternative therapy to surgery in sporadic ampullary adenoma and has been reported to have high success and low recurrence rates. At present, the indications for EP are not yet fully established. The accepted criteria for EP include size (up to 5 cm), no evidence of intraductal growth, and no evidence of malignancy on endoscopic findings (ulceration, friability, and spontaneous bleeding). Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is the imaging modality of ch...

Endoscopic therapy: standardization for less complications.

In recent years, the endoscopic treatment, which is based on the endoscopic mucosal resection and endoscopic submucosal dissection, has developed rapidly. Complication of the endoscopic therapy has been increasingly emphasized. When paying attention to the endoscopic technique innovation, we should also concern the standardization of endoscopic therapy and the prevention and treatment of its complications. Continuous improvement in the safety, practicality and efficacy of endoscopic therapy may translate in...

Autoimmune pancreatitis as an initial manifestation of systemic lupus erythematosus.

Abstract We report a case of systemic lupus erythematosus that concomitantly occurred with autoimmune pancreatitis. The clinical manifestations of pancreatitis improved in response to steroid therapy. Although the pathogenesis of autoimmune pancreatitis is still controversial, as is that of systemic lupus erythematosus, the observations in the present case suggest the presence of an autoimmune mechanism underlying autoimmune pancreatitis.

Effect of phospholipase A2 silencing on acute experimental pancreatitis.

The group II phospholipase A2 (PLA2 II) in blood has been reported to increase in acute pancreatitis and to reflect the severity of pancreatitis. Here we investigated the effect of inhibition of PLA2 using siRNA gene knockdown in vitro and in an in vivo model of experimental pancreatitis.

Aggravation of hypertriglyceridemia and acute pancreatitis in a bipolar patient treated with quetiapine.

Pancreatitis is a very rare adverse effect of quetiapine treatment, with only 5 cases of quetiapine-associated pancreatitis reported in the English literature to date. Herein, we report one patient who developed severe hypertriglyceridemia (>1000 mg/dL) after quetiapine administration, resulting in acute pancreatitis. An analysis of the underlying pathogenic mechanisms and a review of relevant literature are also presented. Clinicians should be aware of the potentially life-threatening metabolic disturbance...
