Balloon-assisted Enteroscopy and Bacteria

2014-07-23 21:10:40 | BioPortfolio

Summary

1. Balloon-assisted enteroscopy (BAE) is a new tool to investigate small intestinal diseases.

2. Deep enteroscopy made possible by balloon expansion and manipulation of small intestines.

3. However, whether intestinal barrier injured during BAE predispose patients to bacteremia or clinical relevant infection is not studied.

4. We will also examine relevant patient factors.

Description

The newly developed balloon-assisted enteroscopy systems allow insertion of the enteroscopy deeply into the small intestines by fixation of the soft, redundant small intestines with an inflatable balloon over the tip of the overtube. However, the inflation of balloon might stimulate the intestinal mucosa, and the deep manipulation of intestinal segments might also compromise the intestinal barrier function. According to our preliminary experience of balloon-assisted enteroscopy (which is among the first groups in Taiwan), we experienced a significant case of suspected post-procedural bactermia patient. Besides, there is also a published case report from the UK reporting Streptococcus milleri bacteremia which is suspected as bacterial translocation after balloon-assisted enteroscopy. However, currently there is no original study focusing on the intestinal barrier / permeability defects or bacterial translocation. This is a timely and novel research topic in the current developing era of balloon-assisted enteroscopy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A highly contagious DNA virus infection of the cat family, characterized by fever, enteritis and bone marrow changes. It is also called feline ataxia, feline agranulocytosis, feline infectious enteritis, cat fever, cat plague, and show fever. It is caused by FELINE PANLEUKOPENIA VIRUS or the closely related MINK ENTERITIS VIRUS or CANINE PARVOVIRUS.

A species of CAMPYLOBACTER isolated from the INTESTINES of PIGS with proliferative ENTERITIS. It is also found in CATTLE and in CRICETINAE and can cause enteritis in humans.

A species of the genus PARVOVIRUS and a host range variant of FELINE PANLEUKOPENIA VIRUS. It causes a highly contagious inflammatory gastroenteritis (MINK VIRAL ENTERITIS). In addition to mink, this virus can also infect cats and dogs.

A highly contagious parvovirus infection in mink, caused by MINK ENTERITIS VIRUS or the closely related FELINE PANLEUKOPENIA VIRUS or CANINE PARVOVIRUS. Transmission usually occurs by the fecal/oral route.

An acute, transmissible, infectious disease associated with high MORTALITY and MORBIDITY in young turkeys (poults). It is characterized by DIARRHEA; ANOREXIA; growth depression, and immune dysfunction. The cause is unknown but astroviruses (AVASTROVIRUS) and coronaviruses (CORONAVIRUS, TURKEY) have been isolated from diseased poults and are thought to cause the enteritis and increased susceptibility to bacterial infections.
