This retrospective study was aimed at assessing the efficacy of endoscopic dilation for esophageal anastomotic strictures, and to compare response between caustic anastomotic strictures (CAS) and non-caustic anastomotic strictures (NCAS).
Biliary strictures represent some of the most frequent complications encountered after orthotopic liver transplantation. They comprise an array of biliary abnormalities with variations in anatomical location, clinical presentation and different pathogenesis. Magnetic resonance cholangiography represents the most accurate non-invasive imaging test that can provide detailed imaging of the whole biliary system, below and above the anastomosis. It is of particular value in those harboring complex hilar or intra...
Endoscopic stricturotomy is a novel technique in the treatment of anastomotic strictures in Crohn's disease (CD). The aim of this study was to compare the outcome of patients with ileocolonic anastomotic stricture treated with endoscopic stricturotomy (ESt) versus ileocolonic resection (ICR).
Balloon enteroscopy-assisted balloon dilation and temporary biliary stent placement are effective for hepaticojejunostomy anastomotic strictures (HJAS), but the re-stenosis rates are relatively high. We examined the feasibility and efficacy of a novel treatment technique for refractory HJAS, called balloon enteroscopy-assisted radial incision and cutting (BE-RIC).
Anastomotic tension has repeatedly been associated to anastomotic leakages following esophagectomy for cancer or esophageal atresia repair. We therefore aimed to determine which anastomotic technique would come as close as possible to the native esophagus in sustaining traction forces. Constant traction for several minutes at esophageal remnants and large suture bites are also considered relevant in long-gap esophageal atresia repair.
Circumferential endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) allows to treat large esophageal superficial neoplasms, however with a high occurrence of severe esophageal strictures. In a previous work, we demonstrated that the application of a prototype of self-assembling peptide (SAP) matrix on esophageal wounds after a circumferential-ESD delayed the onset of esophageal stricture in a porcine model. The aim of this work was to consolidate these results using the commercialized version of this SAP matrix currentl...
Anastomotic tension has been linked to leakage and stenosis in esophageal surgery in both adults and children. We aimed to determine the effects of esophageal topography, operative technique, and anastomotic tension on esophageal blood flow.
This study aimed to compare the effectiveness of endoscopic injection sclerotherapy (EIS) and endoscopic variceal ligation (EVL) in managing esophageal varices (EVs) according to the diameter of para-esophageal varices (PEVs) on computed tomography (CT).
The role of endoscopy in the care of patients with pancreatic cancer continues to evolve. The early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer has been difficult. Endoscopic ultrasound examination should be used to examine pancreatic lesions because it can characterize lesions and sample tissue. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography is essential in managing biliary obstructions. Endoscopic ultrasound can assist in gaining access to difficult biliary trees. Endoscopic placement of luminal stents can be used for...
The repair of esophageal atresia (EA) carries an increased risk of anastomotic leak and stricture formation, especially in patients with anastomotic tension. To minimize this risk, pediatric surgeons perform elective post-operative muscle paralysis, positive-pressure ventilation, and head flexion (PVF) to reduce movement and tension at the anastomosis. We systematically reviewed and analyzed the effect of post-operative PVF on reducing anastomotic complications.
Esophageal stricture is one of the most important complication of the caustic ingestion.
Pediatric anterior urethral strictures are rare and recommendations regarding treatment strategies derive from small monocentric case series. In 2014, a collaborative effort of the Société Internationale d'Urologie and the International Consultation on Urological Diseases drafted the first systematic and evidence-based guideline for diagnosis and treatment of urethral strictures in children. Against this backdrop, we performed an updated literature review to provide a comprehensive summary of the availabl...
Anastomotic leakage is a frequent complication after gastrointestinal (GI) surgery and is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Endoluminal therapy offers numerous advantages compared to surgical revision. We present the case of a 74-year-old female patient with anastomotic leakage after esophagogastrostomy. The defect was closed using the OverStitch endoscopic suturing system with immediate technical and clinical success. Hereby, an example of the feasibility of this novel technique in a case of an...
Pneumatic balloon and bougie dilation are widely used methods for pediatric esophageal dilation. There are no studies directly comparing the safety of these techniques in pediatric patients. This study compared adverse events (AEs) of balloon and bougie dilation in children at a single institution.
Pathological diagnosis of biliary strictures with atypical or suspicious cells on endoscopic retrograde brush cytology and indeterminate strictures on imaging is challenging. The aim of this study was to identify markers for malignant strictures in such cases.
Interventional (or therapeutic) inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) endoscopy has an expanding role in the treatment of disease and surgical adverse events. Endoscopic therapy has been explored and used in the management of strictures, fistulas/abscesses, colitis-associated neoplasia, post-surgical acute or chronic leaks, and obstructions. The endoscopic therapeutic modalities include balloon dilation, stricturotomy, stent placement, fistulotomy, fistula injection and clipping, sinusotomy, endoscopic mucosal r...
Endoscopic papillary balloon dilation (EPBD) was introduced to overcome the risk of adverse events associated with endoscopic sphincterotomy in the removal of common bile duct (CBD) stones. We performed a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing efficacy and safety of EPBD vs. endoscopic sphincterotomy, focusing on stone size, balloon diameter, and balloon dilation time.
The aim of this study was to identify predictive criteria of improvement after endoscopic treatment (ET) for severe strictures of extrahepatic bile ducts in patients with primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC).
Although endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is gradually becoming a first-line treatment for superficial esophageal neoplasms (SENs), strictures occur in almost 100% of cases after circumferential ESD. A standard method has not been established. Thus, we propose a novel self-help inflatable balloon to prevent stricture. The new balloon was used by the patients themselves at home (4-5 times a day, each time lasted about 15-20 minutes), and would be removed when the defects were almost healed. From Januar...
Endoscopic forceps biopsy results that reflect the final pathologic results of an entire lesion are essential for making accurate diagnoses and appropriate therapeutic decisions for patients with superficial esophageal squamous neoplasms (SESNs). This study investigated the histopathologic discrepancies between endoscopic forceps biopsy and endoscopic resection specimens to elucidate the factors contributing to such discrepancies.
A gastric tube (GT) is most often selected as a reconstruction conduit in esophageal reconstruction. Although some leakage from esophagogastric anastomoses is induced by blood flow failure in reconstruction conduits, the association between the GT and the anastomotic leakage (AL) is unclear.
Achalasia is a rare idiopathic disease, associated with significant morbidity and negative impact on life quality. The disorder is characterized by impairments in the esophageal motility and loss of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) relaxation. Achalasia symptoms include dysphagia, regurgitations, chest pain, vomiting and weight loss. Diagnosis of achalasia is based on an appropriate clinical presentation and typical findings on complementary tests. These tests include endoscopy showing a dilated esophag...
Currently, the use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in patients with esophageal carcinoma is limited. However, the quality of MRI for esophageal carcinoma continues to improve and the importance of MRI in patients with esophageal carcinoma has been gradually recognized. Compared with endoscopic ultrasound and computed tomography applied in T and N staging, MRI has now achieved excellent results after the imaging technique has been optimized. We review the literature on MRI and discuss the future of MRI i...
