Ischaemic enterocolitis complicating idiopathic dysautonomia. (1/863)

A previously fit 23 year old adult male who presented with a sudden onset of profound autonomic neuropathy, for which no cause could be found, is described. The patient subsequently developed ischaemic enterocolitis that ultimately necessitated colectomy and subtotal enterectomy. Potential neural and humoral mechanisms are discussed.  (+info)

Laparoscopic-assisted colectomy: a comparison of dissection techniques. (2/863)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Mobilization of the colon and dissection of the mesentery are difficult laparoscopic techniques. Traditional methods have been used for this dissection, but often with great difficulty. The ultrasonically activated shears, when introduced in 1993, had the possibility to make this dissection less technically difficult. This is a retrospective review of the use of these shears for these techniques during laparoscopic-assisted colectomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Eighty-five patients underwent a laparoscopic-assisted right hemicolectomy or sigmoid resection. Colon mobilization and mesenteric dissection were completed intracorporeally. Complications, operative time, estimated blood loss, and length of stay were compared for resections completed with and without the ultrasonically activated shears. RESULTS: Thirty-six patients had laparoscopic-assisted colectomy without the shears, and 49 patients had the procedure with the shears. There were no complications due to the ultrasonic energy. Use of the shears resulted in shorter operative times (170 min. vs. 187 min., p=0.1989), similar median blood loss (98 mL vs. 95 mL, p=0.7620), and shorter lengths of stay (4.3 days vs. 6.9 days, p=0.0018). CONCLUSIONS: The ultrasonically activated shears are safe and effective for colon mobilization and mesenteric division. The use of the shears may result in shorter operative times and shorter lengths of stay.  (+info)

Laparoscopic colon surgery for benign disease: a comparison to open surgery. (3/863)

BACKGROUNDS AND OBJECTIVES: There remains a debate in the literature about the advisability of laparoscopic surgery for malignant disease of the colon. Current prospective studies will hopefully answer this question. However, for benign diseases of the colon, we believe laparoscopic surgery offers many advantages including decreased postoperative pain, early discharge from the hospital, and early return to normal activities. We retrospectively reviewed our experience with laparoscopic colectomies for benign disease to see whether these procedures could be done safely and if the proposed advantages could be realized. METHODS: Thirty-eight laparoscopic colon resections performed for benign disease were compared to 39 open colon resections with respect to operating times, length of hospital stay, estimated blood loss, days until first postoperative bowel movement, and complications. RESULTS: The laparoscopic colon resection group had decreased length of stay, less blood loss, earlier return of bowel function, and an equivalent number of complications. Laparoscopic cases did take an average of 24 minutes longer. CONCLUSION: The use of laparoscopic colon surgery for benign disease not only affords the patient the advantage of the laparoscopic approach, but also allows the surgeon to gain experience while awaiting the results of ongoing trials for laparoscopic colon surgery in malignant disease.  (+info)

Transmesenteric hernia after laparoscopic-assisted sigmoid colectomy. (4/863)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Laparoscopic-assisted surgery has been applied for a variety of colonic surgery. The objective of this paper is to demonstrate a possible and avoidable complication of laparoscopic colonic surgery. CASE PRESENTATION: A 47-year-old woman underwent gasless laparoscopic-assisted sigmoid colectomy. On the 20th postoperative day, she developed bowel obstruction. Decompression with a long tube failed to resolve the bowel obstruction. Open laparotomy was performed. Abdominal exploration revealed a loop of the small bowel incarcerated in the mesenteric defect caused by the previous operation. Adhesiolysis was performed, and the postoperative course was uneventful. DISCUSSION: Despite technical difficulty, complete closure of the mesentery after bowel resection is strongly recommended for prevention of transmesenteric incarcerated hernia after laparoscopic surgery.  (+info)

Changes in plasma potassium concentration during carbon dioxide pneumoperitoneum. (5/863)

Hyperkalaemia with ECG changes had been noted during prolonged carbon dioxide pneumoperitoneum in pigs. We have compared plasma potassium concentrations during surgery in 11 patients allocated randomly to undergo either laparoscopic or open appendectomy and in another 17 patients allocated randomly to either carbon dioxide pneumoperitoneum or abdominal wall lifting for laparoscopic colectomy. Despite an increasing metabolic acidosis, prolonged carbon dioxide pneumoperitoneum resulted in only a slight increase in plasma potassium concentrations, which was both statistically and clinically insignificant. Thus hyperkalaemia is unlikely to develop in patients with normal renal function undergoing carbon dioxide pneumoperitoneum for laparoscopic surgery.  (+info)

External beam radiotherapy for pelvic node recurrence after curative resection of colon cancer: report of a case. (6/863)

The role of radiotherapy in locally advanced or recurrent colon cancer has not yet been determined. A 59-year-old man undergoing curative resection for advanced descending colon cancer had pelvic lymph node metastasis detected by computed tomography 5 months postoperatively. Intravenous chemotherapy using 5-fluorouracil and CDDP was repeated bimonthly for 7 months; however, his condition deteriorated progressively. External beam radiotherapy (50 Gy) was started thereafter. His serum carcinoembryonic antigen level decreased promptly and abdominal computed tomography showed apparent shrinkage of the metastatic pelvic node with calcification. The patient maintained a partial response for at least 12 months. Radiotherapy has a more crucial role in the treatment of a subgroup of recurrent colorectal tumors.  (+info)

A case of amyloid goiter secondary to Crohn's disease. (7/863)

We herewith report a case of amyloid goiter secondary to Crohn's disease. The patient had been diagnosed as having Crohn's disease at the age of 15, and underwent right hemicolectomy at age 20. When he was 26 years old he complained of swelling of the anterior neck. Both TSH and thyroid hormones were within the normal range, and anti-thyroglobulin and anti-microsomal antibodies were negative. Only thyroglobulin was noticeably above the normal range. During the next year his goiter enlarged further and because he had a feeling of pressure he underwent total thyroidectomy. The presence of amyloid A protein in his surgical specimen led to the diagnosis of amyloid goiter. Although most cases of secondary amyloidosis are known to develop in neoplasms or chronic inflammatory diseases, our patient had no illness other than Crohn's disease. Perusal of literature revealed that Crohn's disease is rarely a cause of amyloid goiter.  (+info)

The changes of ventilatory parameters in laparoscopic colecystectomy. (8/863)

We investigated the ventilatory changes in healthy patients without cardiopulmonary pathology during elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy in the head-up position. During surgery, intraabdominal pressure was maintained at 15 mmHg by a CO2 insufflator, and minute ventilation was controlled with a constant tidal volume and fixed respiratory rate. PETCO2 was monitored continuously and recorded every minute. Basic hemodynamic and ventilatory parameters were measured before anesthesia; after induction of anesthesia; at 5 min, 10 min and 30 min after peritoneal insufflation; and 5 min and 10 min after exsufflation. Arterial blood samples were obtained 3 times to calculate D(a-A)CO2, VD/VT, and Vco2. The latent period of PETCO2 change was 2.9 min, the ascending period was 12.6 min, and the descending period was 12.2 min. During the 71.5 min of pneumoperitoneum, V(I), VE, peak and plateau Paw increased, while Cdyn decreased significantly. Peritoneal insufflation or exsufflation also resulted in a significant change of D(a-A)CO2, D(a-A)O2, and Vco2. The anesthesiologist must be aware of both hemodynamic and ventilatory changes and must be ready to respond promptly and adequately.  (+info)

The appropriateness of laparoscopic surgery for the resection of colorectal cancer has been the focus of controversy. The pros insist that besides the smaller wound size, laparoscopic colectomy should induce lesser perioperative stress, which was evidenced by the less pain, quicker flatus passage, early feeding, and more rapid to resume daily activity and work. Moreover, since the laparoscopic colectomy induces lesser immunosuppression, this may be potentially positive for the treatment of colorectal cancer patients. However, the cons insist that first of all, when the summation of 4 or 5 ports, and incisional wound to retrieve specimen in laparoscopic colectomy were considered, the total wound size in laparoscopic colectomy is basically similar to that of the open colectomy. Secondly, since the laparoscopic surgeons advocated that the extent of intra-abdominal dissection was the same between laparoscopic and open colectomy, it seems illogical to speculate that laparoscopic procedure is less ...

Much controversy exists over whether subtotal colectomy with ileoproctostomy is the appropriate procedure in these patients owing to the risk of subsequent cancer in the retained portion of the rectum. At Duke University Medical Center, Durham, NC, a group of 25 patients chose to undergo the subtotal colectomy and ileoproctostomy instead of the definitive total proctocolectomy. Of the 25 patients in this series, invasive adenocarcinoma has developed in the rectal segment in only 1 patient. This patient, the oldest in our series, had carcinoma in situ in her initial operative specimen and has done well folowing an ...
Less invasive surgery for colon cancer with laparoscopic colectomy improves outcomes. These findings were reported in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.. Historically, surgical treatment for colon cancer involved a procedure called open colectomy to remove section of the colon containing cancer. This involved large incisions and opening of the abdomen in order to remove the cancer. More recently, a less invasive approach known as laparoscopic colectomy has been associated with decreasing the side effects caused by open colectomy. In a laparoscopic colectomy, a few incisions-approximately one-centimeter long-are made in the patients abdomen. A very small tube that holds a video camera can then be inserted through the incisions, creating a live picture of the inside of the patients body. This picture is continually displayed on a television screen so that physicians can perform the entire surgery by watching the screen. Before the section of the colon containing the cancer is removed ...

Hugo Bonatti, Kiran Khosha. Meritus Health, Hagerstown MD. Introduction: Cecal (CV) and sigmoid volvulus (SV) are acute surgical disorders frequently requiring emergent surgery. Colonoscopic decompression may temporize the condition; however; CV and SV may recur requiring colectomy. Only few cases of combined CV and SV have been reported and open surgery has remained the more common approach.. Case Report: A 40-year-old African-American female with cerebral palsy came to the ER with acute abdominal distention and pain. CT-scan revealed acute CV. Multiple episodes of SV had been treated nonoperatively in the past. The proximal bowel was decompressed through her PEG tube and the large bowel by colonoscopy. Laparoscopic (partial) colectomy with ostomy was planned. The patient was placed supine, trocars were placed in the left upper (U) and left lower quadrant (LQ) and into an old upper midline incision from a fundoplication. Transverse colon adhesions at the PEG tube site were lysed, the right (R) ...
Colectomy (col- + -ectomy) is bowel resection of the large bowel (colon). It consists of the surgical removal of any extent of the colon, usually segmental resection (partial colectomy). In extreme cases where the entire large intestine is removed, it is called total colectomy, and proctocolectomy (procto- + colectomy) denotes that the rectum is included. Some of the most common indications for colectomy are: Colon cancer Diverticulitis and diverticular disease of the large intestine Trauma Inflammatory bowel disease such as ulcerative colitis or Crohns disease. Colectomy neither cures nor eliminates Crohns disease, instead only removing part of the entire diseased large intestine. A colectomy is considered a cure for ulcerative colitis because the disease attacks only the large intestine and therefore will not be able to flare up again if the entire large intestine (cecum, ascending colon, transverse colon, descending colon and sigmoid colon) and rectum are removed. However, it does not ...

Congenital long segment megacolon is still a serious therapeutic problem. It is generally accepted that conservative treatment without surgical intervention will not give satisfactory results. The purpose of this case report is to show how subtotal colectomy and anastomosis cecorectalis is the operation of choice. At the Childrens Hospital in Zagreb we have had only two cases on which we performed cecorectal anastomosis. The patients general condition and enormous dilatation of the ganglionic region indicated surgery and only anus praeter bipollaris was performed on the colon ascendens. The second operation took place one year after the first operation. At the second operation we performed subtotal colectomy with cecorectal anastomosis. The postoperative clinical course was without complications. The wound cured regularly. Digitorectal examination revealed no anomalies in the anastomosis. The children had 1-2 stools daily. After six months we performed a check up examination with irigography, ...

While there are no differences in oncologic principles (no touch technique, proximal vessel ligation, lymphadenectomy) between laparoscopic right colectomy with IIA and EIA, potential advantages of IIA are: (1) no need for extensive mobilization of the transverse colon to reach the abdominal wall; (2) performing the anastomosis away from the abdominal wall may lead to reduced rates of superficial site infection; (3) a shorter incision for the specimen extraction may be associated with clinical benefits such as less pain and lower rates of superficial site infections; (4) laparoscopic visualization during the creation of the IIA may reduce unrecognized twisting of the terminal ileum mesentery, and (5) the ability to remove the specimen through any type of incision, with subsequent reduced risks of incisional hernias in case of Pfannenstiel incision when compared to midline or off-midline incisions..

Laparoscopic colon surgery is a technique performed for colon cancer treatment. Laparoscopic colon resection surgery allows a high success rate (over 95%) for even the most complicated patients.
Both these surgeries are performed to remove bowel disease affecting different parts of the large bowel. The choice of surgery is dependent on where the growth or disease extends to.. The abdomino-perineal resection involves removing a section of large bowel (the sigmoid colon) along with the rectum and the anus (the back passage).. The total colectomy with proctectomy involves removing the entire large bowel along with the rectum and anus (the back passage). When the back passage is removed, the area is then stitched up and permanently closed. A new permanent opening for the bowel is called a stoma and is made in the wall of the abdomen (tummy). Bo dy waste then collects in a disposable adhesive bag which covers the new stoma.. If you are undergoing the abdomino-perineal resection, the stoma is called a colostomy because it is formed in the remaining section of the large bowel (colon). If you are undergoing a total colectomy with proctectomy, the stoma is called an Ileostomy because it is ...

BACKGROUND: To determine the long-term outcome of patients admitted with acute severe colitis (ASC) who avoided colectomy on the index admission, a retrospective cohort study was performed. METHODS: Patients admitted for intensive treatment of ASC in 1992-1993 previously described for a predictive index of short-term outcome in severe ulcerative colitis (UC) were followed for a median 122 months (range 3-144). Complete responders (CR) to intensive therapy had |3 nonbloody stools/day on day 7 of the index admission; incomplete responders (IR) were all others who avoided colectomy on that admission. Main outcome measures were colectomy-free survival, time to colectomy, and duration of steroid-free remission. RESULTS: In all, 6/19 CR (32%) came to colectomy compared to 10/13 IR (P = 0.016; relative risk 3.33, 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.12-9.9).

Colectomy (Hemicolectomy, partial colectomy, or segmental resection) Procedure overview A colectomy is a surgical procedure used to treat colon diseases. These include cancer, inflammatory disease, or diverticulitis. The surgery involves removing a portion of the colon, which is part of the large intestine. When treating cancer, the surgeon will typically remove the portion of the colon that appears cancerous. He or she will also remove another small portion on either side of the cancerous part and some...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Hyperglycemia is associated with increased risk of morbidity and mortality after colectomy for cancer. AU - Jackson, Rubie Sue. AU - Amdur, Richard L.. AU - White, Jon C.. AU - MacSata, Robyn A.. PY - 2012/1/1. Y1 - 2012/1/1. N2 - The relationship of hyperglycemia to general surgery outcomes is not well-understood. We studied the association of operative day and postoperative day 1 (POD1) blood glucose (BG) with outcomes after open colectomy for cancer. We retrospectively analyzed the 2000-2005 Veterans Affairs Surgical Quality Improvement Program database, linked with Veterans Affairs Decision Support System BG values. Median BG was categorized as hypoglycemic (,80 mg/dL); normoglycemic (BG 80-120 mg/dL); or mildly (BG 121-160 mg/dL), moderately (BG 161-200 mg/dL), or severely (BG ,200 mg/dL) hyperglycemic. The relationship of BG to postoperative outcomes was assessed with multivariable logistic regression. We identified 9,638 colectomies. We excluded 511 procedures for ...

Metastatic disease is the main cause of death in patients with colorectal cancer and the most frequent location of metastases is in the liver. The treatment of liver metastases of colorectal origin is multimodal and should be based on a multidisciplinary team decision. A systematic review of the literature revealed that the number of liver metastases, their maximum size, CEA level, advanced age of the patients, and presence of extrahepatic disease are no longer contraindications to liver resection. The resectability rate of colorectal liver metastases increased from 10 to almost 40%, enabling 5-year overall survival rates higher than 30%. Short-term and long-term results achieved by simultaneous resection (SR) are similar to those achieved by staged resections in patients with synchronous colorectal liver metastases. Whenever possible, major hepatectomies should be replaced by ultrasound-guided limited liver resections, and primary tumor should be approached in a minimally invasive manner. Even
Twenty-one consecutive patients undergoing colectomy for Crohns disease of total colon were studied, with particular emphasis on hepatic abnormality at colectomy and at 3- to 7-year follow-up. After colectomy there was a high incidence of recurrent Crohns disease involving small bowel, regardless of initial small-bowel involvement. There were abnormalities of liver histology in 90% of the 20 operative biopsies, with 75% showing more than minor change. Cirrhosis, amyloidosis, and multiple hepatic granulomata were also noted. Elevated serum alkaline phosphatase was of value in detecting significant hepatic abnormality. Other tests were not as useful, being either too insensitive (such as serum bilirubin and serum transaminases) or too nonspecific (serum protein abnormalities and sulfobromophthalein retention). Blood transfusions, potentially hepatotoxic drugs, and previous hepatitis appeared unrelated to observed hepatic abnormalities. The frequency and type of hepatic abnormality encountered in ...

Transverse colectomy can make a valuable contribution to maximal surgical cytoreduction attempts for ovarian cancer, with acceptable morbidity, researchers have found. The study involved 39 ovarian cancer patients, of whom 33 underwent primary surgery for stage IIIC or stage IV disease, Robert Bristow (The Kelly Gynecologic Oncology Service, The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, Baltimore, Maryland, USA) and team report.. A third of the patients had no residual gross disease after surgery, while 59.0 percent of patients were left with residual disease of 0.1-1.0 cm, and 7.7 percent with residual disease of ,1 cm. Morbidity was acceptable, affecting 25.6 percent of patients, with fistulas occurring in 5.1 percent of patients, and the mortality rate was 2.6 percent.. Overall, 33 patients underwent partial and nine underwent total transverse colectomy. Surgery involved rectosigmoid colectomy in 61.5 percent of cases and two separate colonic anastamoses in 48.7 percent.. Bristow et. al. say: ...

Colonic resection leads to insulin resistance, but the mechanisms are unknown. We used an integrated approach to examine adipose tissue and skeletal muscle metabolism in patients lacking a colon. Ten healthy colectomized patients having undergone surgery for ulcerative colitis and 10 matched control subjects were studied with a hyperinsulinemic-euglycemic clamp to measure insulin sensitivity, an arteriovenous sampling meal tolerance study to measure postprandial substrate flux across adipose tissue and skeletal muscle, and adipose tissue and skeletal muscle biopsies to quantify the expression of genes involved in glucose and lipid metabolism. Colectomized subjects exhibited lower insulin sensitivity (homeostatic model assessment model, 33% reduction, P = 0.03; minimal model, 29% reduction, P = 0.05), elevated aldosterone (9-fold, P = 0.003), leptin (2.2-fold, P = 0.03), and an increased rate of nonesterified fatty acid and glycerol release from adipose tissue (P = 0.02) especially in the late

MOKHELE, N N; THOMSON, S R and WATERMEYER, G A. Predictors of emergency colectomy in patients admitted with acute severe ulcerative colitis. S. Afr. j. surg. [online]. 2017, vol.55, n.3, pp.20-26. ISSN 2078-5151.. BACKGROUND: Acute Severe Ulcerative Colitis (ASUC) is a life-threatening condition which requires urgent and aggressive medical therapy to reduce mortality, morbidity and avoid surgery. To facilitate this process, it is essential to identify patients at high risk of poor outcomes and emergency colectomy. Numerous such risk factors have been described in Western literature, however there is no local data addressing this issue. As such it is unclear if these predictors are applicable in our setting. The aim of this study is thus to identify risk factors for emergency colectomy in patients admitted to Groote Schuur Hospital with ASUC. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study of 98 patients admitted with ASUC between January 2003 and January 2013 was performed. Clinical, demographic, ...
Life after total colectomy - What would be the approx life span for someone that has intestinal malabsorption due to subtotal colectomy, Ileostomy placement, short bowel syndrome? Maybe long. The colectomy and ileostomy will not typically shorten life expectancy. Short bowel syndrome may shorten life span, but it depends on severity. There are a few centers in the US that perform bowel lengthening procedures and small bowel transplant. Ask you surgeon about the severity of the short bowel, and think about support groups for ileostomy help. Hope this helps!
TY - JOUR. T1 - Bronchiectasis following total colectomy. T2 - Inhaled steroids effect on lung function and bronchial inflammation. AU - Fuschillo, Salvatore. PY - 2005. Y1 - 2005. N2 - Inflammatory blowel disease (IBD) is a systemic disease that may involve the lung. Chronic bronchitis and bronchiectasis are the most common respiratory diseases associated with IBD. Inhaled or systemic steroids lead to a significant clinical and functional improvement in IBD-related bronchiectasis. We present the case of a 33-year-old woman with severe ulcerative colitis who, following a total colectomy, developed bilateral bronchiectasis 1 week after surgery. Inhaled steroids treatment decreased the volume of expectorations and significantly improved bronchial obstruction. In spite of the relevent clinical and functional improvements obtained, no effect was observed on airway inflammation..

Combined laparoscopic colectomy and splenectomy for bleeding transverse colon cancer and MDS associated splenomegaly with refractory ITP
Results 2980 patients with UC were initially included. 111 (4.4%) patients with UC had an appendectomy; of which 63 were performed prior to UC diagnosis and 48 after diagnosis. In multivariable analysis, appendectomy performed at any time was an independent risk factor for colectomy (OR 1.9, 95% CI 1.1 to 3.1), with appendectomy performed after UC diagnosis most strongly associated with colectomy (OR 2.2, 95% CI 1.1 to 4.5). An updated meta-analysis showed appendectomy performed either prior to or after UC diagnosis had no effect on colectomy rates. ...
I cannot tell you how common obstructions are in relation to colectomies because eveyone is different. I had my first colectomy 7 years ago and I have had 3 obstructions because I cannot pass solid stools. If you cannot move stool through your rectum, then a colectomy may not be helpful to you. In order for me to have a BM my stools have to be liquid so I can only eat liquids. Then I take Sorbitol 4xper day and I drink an entire bottle of Citrate of Magnesium every night. For a while I was drinking Epson salt 2x at night. Epson salt works great but it is very depleting and I ended up in the hospital. Remember, I do not eat solids so I have to take all of these agents just to move the liquid Jello and chicken broth ...

I am new to this forum - and it has been theraputic to be able to read the posts from people like myself who have suffered with chronic constipation for most of their lives. I too was constipated for my entire life - as an infant, my Mom tells me that I had collic and needed enemas using an ear syringe in order to have a BM. In January of 2007 I had rectocele surgery ... it did not help the constipation. In May I had the sitz marker tests - all 20 markers were in my colon - I didnt lose one. Later that month, I had a total colectomy in and I cant believe how wonderful it is to actually have a BM everyday. When I feel a little bloated, or if I have the beginning feelings of constipation, I drink about 4 oz of white grape juice and usually that is all it takes. My major BM of the day, arrives at about midnight every day - wish it were earlier, but believe me, Im not complaining. The surgery was a lifesaver because, I too, like many of you, did not want to live the way I had been - swallowing ...
BACKGROUND: The standard surgical treatment for slow-transit constipation (STC) is subtotal colectomy and ileorectal anastomosis. A segmental resection may serve the same purpose, but with a reduced risk of side-effects such as diarrhoea or incontinence. The aim of this study was to evaluate the functional results following segmental resection in a consecutive series of patients with STC.. METHODS: Selection criteria included prolonged segmental transit on oral 111In-labelled diethylene triamine penta-acetic acid scintigraphic transit study, and disabling symptoms resistant to medical therapy and treatment of outlet obstruction. Twenty-eight patients (26 women, median age 52 years) were treated with segmental resection and followed prospectively with a validated questionnaire.. RESULTS: After a median of 50 (range 16-78) months, 23 patients were pleased with the outcome. The median (range) stool frequency increased from 1 (0-7) to 7 (0-63) per week (P , 0.001). The number of patients passing ...
What a horrible experience you have been through. I always thought the surgery would fix the problem but not cause so many others. I wonder if the same problems are possible with laparoscopic colon resection surgery. Was that an option for you? They say there are some advantages over open surgery. My husband had one of the best surgeons in our town. I guess you hit the nail on the head when you said luck and the patients own body reactions to surgery play a big role. My husbands intestines apparently were angry with the intrusion and it took a long time for them to wake up. The doctor kept saying it takes time and patience - easier said than done. It took ten days for the doctor to decide to go ahead with the second surgery. The waiting was unbelievable.. I hope all of your health problems are now behind you and you are living a good life. ...
7. Last but not least decompressive/diverting ileostomy for severe complicated C. diff cases. To say that the Pittsburgh group got this one right is an underestimate (Ann Surg. 2011 Sep;254(3):423-7). I believe this study will revolutionize how we operate on our most severe cases of CDI. This observational study showed significant reductions in mortality and significant reductions in need for subtotal colectomy (compared with historical controls) and significant increases in future reanastomoses by avoiding subtotal colectomies and instead performing a decompressive ileostomy with 2 limbs (1 limb diverts the fecal stream and the other is used for intracolonic vanco). GoLytely is also given to washout the evil humors and IV metronidazole is also given. Anectdotally, we have used this in about a half a dozen patients at my community hospital and the outcomes are remarkable. Im thinking to myself that anyone who feels the need to study this as part of a randomized open label trial should abandon ...
Question - Had open surgery for advanced sigmoid colectomy. Watery stools with pain in the anus. What could be done?. Ask a Doctor about Sigmoidoscopy, Ask a Gastroenterologist
30 Oct 2019. As people are living longer, more elderly patients are being diagnosed with age-related colon cancer, making it of increasing concern to the medical community.. Another related issue is whether an operation should be suggested as a form of treatment for this vulnerable population.. However, results from a preliminary research study reveal the vast majority of surgical patients over 85 were still alive in the short-term after undergoing an operation (called colectomy) to remove a portion of the colon for stage II and III colon cancer.. Researchers presented their findings at the American College of Surgeons Clinical Congress 2019.. Using the New York State Cancer Registry and Statewide Planning Research & Cooperative System, lead study author Roma Kaur, MD, a research fellow in the department of surgery, University of Rochester Medical Center, N.Y. and colleagues analysed data on 3,779 patients age 85 and older who underwent colectomy between 2004 and 2012.. They looked at short-term ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Synchronous robotic right hemicolectomy and subtotal gastrectomy. AU - Carbone, Fabio. AU - Pace, Ugo. AU - Albino, Vittorio. AU - Leongito, Maddalena. AU - Delrio, Paolo. PY - 2020. Y1 - 2020. N2 - About 4% of patients with stomach cancer diagnosis have synchronous colorectal cancer and some of these patients may require a synchronous surgical resection. So far, only few minimally invasive series of synchronous resections have been described. We investigated the feasibility and safety of the synchronous robotic resection of the right colon and stomach malignancies, trying to identify a standardised and reproducible technique. It is essential to carefully plan the operation and the trocars positioning to minimise the number of robotic dockings and be able to operate comfortably. Herein, we describe our approach, which is safe and effective in terms of minimal invasiveness and oncological radicality. Robotic surgery could be used with even more advantage in complex multi-organ ...
BACKGROUND: During six years experience of intravenous cyclosporin (i.v. Cy) for severe ulcerative colitis we have noted that changes of villous architecture and epithelial regeneration occur even when the disease fails to enter clinical remission and colectomy is required. OBJECTIVE: To describe the histological changes in patients who received i.v. Cy and steroids compared with those treated with i.v. steroids alone. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Two groups of histological sections were reviewed. The first group was of 23 colectomy specimens from patients who had been treated with i.v. Cy and steroids. For 11 patients pre-Cy histological sections were available. The second group was of 10 colectomy specimens from patients who had received i.v. steroids alone. Biopsies were scored for their histological disease activity (HDAI), villous architecture and epithelial regeneration. The HDAI assesses the degree of acute and chronic inflammation. RESULTS: The post-Cy group had higher median scores for villous

immune Uncategorized buy 1421227-52-2, Palmitoyl Pentapeptide Colorectal malignancy (CRC) continues to be thought as a common malignancy because of its prevailing occurrence in both men and women.

Colonic lipomas are rare benign tumors infrequently met in clinical practice. Most of them are asymptomatic making frequent their fortuitous discovery. The therapeutic approach to the fortuitous discovery of a lipoma is even less clear. The treatment depends essentially on the clinical picture, on the size of the lipoma and on its location. We report the case of a 31-year old woman, which sub-occlusive accidents events revealed a lipoma of the descending colon. The diagnosis was suspected on colonoscopy and segmental colectomy was performed. The diagnosis was confirmed by histological examination. We review the literature and discuss the clinical features, diagnosis and treatment of this uncommon disease.

Last fall, I talked with my doctors about removing my rectum. I have had colitis for years. It hurts and bleeds all the time.. In January, my surgeon scheduled surgery to remove it. This would eliminate all possibility of reversing my ostomy. I was fine with that.. In February, my GI specialist told me I could get a subtotal colectomy and reverse the ostomy.. A week later, my surgeon told me he thought it might be better to just remove the entire colon.. Last Thursday was the two year anniversary of placing my colostomy. My surgeon called me that night to tell me that he had run into my GI specialist and they had together decided to reverse the ostomy and not remove all of the colon because if they are wrong they cant put it back. This removes some colon but for complicated reasons Im too frustrated to explain right now, there is a rock solid chance that I will end up exactly where I was two years ago before I got my ostomy. A place I swore I would never be again. He offered that if it ...

Melode Dickerson, a 50-year-old woman, underwent a routine colonoscopy that revealed a suspicious-looking polyp that could not be completely excised during the colonoscopy procedure. Melode was referred to Dr. Florias Morfesis for performance of a partial colectomy (removal of a portion of the colon) at the location of the polyp. Melode underwent this surgical procedure without event at Cape Fear Valley Hospital, and was discharged from the hospital one day after the procedure despite laboratory signs trending in the wrong direction and difficulty urinating.. Melode returned to the hospital approximately 8 hours after her discharge and complained of severe abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and inability to urinate.
