Laparoscopic-assisted colectomy: a comparison of dissection techniques. (1/261)

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)

A bile acid-induced apoptosis assay for colon cancer risk and associated quality control studies. (2/261)

Bile acids are important in the etiology of colorectal cancer. Bile acids induce apoptosis in colonic goblet cells at concentrations comparable to those found in fecal water after high-fat meals. Preliminary evidence indicated that cells of the normal-appearing (nontumorous) portion of the colon epithelium of colon cancer patients are more resistant to bile salt-induced apoptosis than are cells from normal individuals. In the present study, 68 patients were examined, and biopsies were taken at 20 cm from the anal verge, cecum, and descending colon. The patients included 17 individuals with a history of colorectal cancer, 37 individuals with adenomas, and 14 individuals who were neoplasia free. The mean bile salt-induced apoptotic index among normal individuals was 57.6 +/- 3.47 (SE), which differed significantly (P < 0.05) from the mean value of 36.41 +/- 3.12 in individuals with a history of colon cancer. The correlation between independent observers was 0.89 (P < 0.001), indicating good interobserver reliability. Components of variance comparing interindividual versus intraindividual sources of variation suggested that site-to-site variability, both between regions of the colon and for adjacent biopsies, was larger than the interpatient variability for individuals with a history of neoplasia. Therefore, there was "patchiness" of the susceptibility of regions of the colon to bile acid-induced apoptosis in individuals with a history of neoplasia (a patchy field effect). There was no obvious correlation of low-apoptotic index regions with regions in which previous neoplasias had been found and removed. On the other hand, for normal, i.e., neoplasia-free, individuals, there was relatively less intraindividual variation compared to interindividual variation. Our assay shows an association between resistance to bile acid-induced apoptosis, measured at 20 cm from the anal verge, and colon cancer risk. Thus, this assay may prove useful as a biomarker of colon cancer risk.  (+info)

Johanson-Blizzard syndrome: a prenatal ultrasonographic diagnosis. (3/261)

Johanson-Blizzard syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by aplasia of alae nasi, pancreatic insufficiency, aplasia cutis, anorectal anomalies and postnatal growth restriction. In this case report, we describe the prenatal sonographic findings of Johanson-Blizzard syndrome in a 21-week pregnancy of a consanguineous couple. Sonographic findings of aplastic alae nasi (beak-like nose) and dilated sigmoid colon led to the prenatal diagnosis. This is the first report of the prenatal sonographic diagnosis of Johanson-Blizzard syndrome.  (+info)

Colonic carcinoma after ureterosigmoidostomy. (4/261)

Urinary carcinogens promote late malignant transformation of the colon after a ureterosigmoidostomy. An unusual case is presented where, despite the early removal of the latter and hence cessation of urine flow, a colonic carcinoma developed at the site of previous anastomosis. The importance of surveillance of all patients who have undergone this procedure to avoid an iatrogenic cancer is emphasised.  (+info)

pHi monitoring of the sigmoid colon after aortoiliac surgery. A five-year prospective study. (5/261)

OBJECTIVES: to determine whether sigmoid-pHi diagnose colon ischaemia after aortoiliac surgery? DESIGN: single-centre, non-randomised, prospective study. PATIENTS AND METHODS: of 83 patients operated on between 1994 and 1998, 41 with risk factors for the development of colon ischaemia were monitored peri- and/or postoperatively with sigmoid-pHi. Peri-operative mortality was 26% (8/31) after operation for a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), nil after operation for non-ruptured AAA. Thirty-five postoperative colonoscopies were performed. All non-survivors were examined post-mortem. RESULTS: of six patients developing colon ischaemia after emergency operations (five for ruptured AAA) all had pHi-values <7.1 for 16-80 h. In two patients with transmural gangrene, and who had pHi-values below 6.6, pHi-monitoring permitted early diagnosis, colectomy and recovery. Three patients with mucosal gangrene were treated conservatively and recovered. Nine patients without ischaemic lesions had pHi-values <7.1, during 1-5 h, without adverse outcome. Bilateral ligation of the internal iliac arteries increased the risk of colon ischaemia (p<0.0001). CONCLUSIONS: pHi-monitoring was diagnostic for colon ischaemia. Mucosal and transmural gangrene were distinguished. The importance of the internal iliac circulation was demonstrated. The low mortality rate, and the fact that no patient died from bowel ischaemia, suggests that sigmoid pHi-monitoring may improve survival after ruptured AAA.  (+info)

V gamma 2 TCR repertoire overlap in different anatomical compartments of healthy, unrelated rhesus macaques. (6/261)

Gammadelta T cells show preferential homing that is characterized by biased TCR repertoire at different anatomical locations. The processes that regulate this compartmentalization are largely unknown. A model that allows repeated multiple sample procurement under different conditions and enables with relatively straightforward extrapolation to a human situation will facilitate our understanding. The peripheral blood Vgamma2 T cell population is the best-characterized human gammadelta T cell subset. To determine its diversity at multiple immunocompartments matching blood, colon, and vagina samples from rhesus macaques were investigated. Four joining segments used in Vgamma2-Jgamma transcripts were identified, including one segment with no human counterpart. Like in humans, the rhesus peripheral blood Vgamma2 TCR repertoire was limited and contained common sequences that were shared by genetically heterogeneous animals. Furthermore, this subset comprised several phylogenetically conserved Vgamma2 complementarity-determining region 3 (CDR3) motifs between rhesus and humans. Common sequences were also found within the colon and vagina of the same animal, and within the peripheral blood and intestine of different unrelated animals. These results validate rhesus macaques as a useful model for gammadelta TCR repertoire and homing studies. Moreover, they provide evidence that the concept of limited but overlapping Vgamma TCR repertoire between unrelated individuals can be extended including the mucosa of the digestive and reproductive tract.  (+info)

Statistical analysis of diverticulosis of the colon. (7/261)

Forty-four cases of diverticulosis of the colon were detected among 2,662 cases examined by barium enema in Tohoku University. This corresponds to 1.7% in frequency. On the other hand, 21 cases were found among 1,511 cases examined in Hirosaki University, giving 1.4% in frequency. It was more frequent in the male. The frequency, as calculated on the basis of the numbers of cases examined by barium enema in separate age groups, showed the gradual increase with age except for above the eighth decade. The location where the diverticulum was most frequently seen was the right colon; namely, cases in which the diverticulum occurred from the cecum to the ascending colon and those in which it was found only in the ascending colon occupied 61.4 and 71.4% of the total cases, respectively. Diverticulitis as a complication was rare, while coincidence of polyp or carcinoma was sometimes observed. Furthermore, the value of fiberscopy for the diagnosis of diverticulosis of the colon was discussed, and its usefulness for the detection of complication was emphasized.  (+info)

Characterization and autoradiographic localization of neurotensin binding sites in human sigmoid colon. (8/261)

Radioiodinated neurotensin ((125)I-NT) was used to characterize and localize NT binding sites in normal human sigmoid colon. Specimens were obtained from patients (30-77 years old) undergoing resection for colon carcinoma. Specific binding of (125)I-NT to sigmoid circular muscle membranes was enhanced by o-phenanthroline (1 mM) but other peptidase inhibitors were ineffective. (125)I-NT bound to a high-affinity site of K(d) = 0.88 +/- 0.09 nM and B(max) = 4.03 +/- 0.66 fmol/mg of wet weight tissue (n = 14), although in the majority of patients another site, of low but variable affinity, could also be detected. Specific binding of 50 pM (125)I-NT was inhibited by NT(8-13) > NT > SR142948A > or = neuromedin N > or = SR48692, consistent with binding to the NT1 receptor. In autoradiographic studies, dense specific binding of (125)I-NT was seen over myenteric and submucosal ganglia, moderate binding over circular muscle, and sparse binding over longitudinal muscle and taenia coli. Levocabastine, which has affinity for the NT2 receptor, did not inhibit specific binding of (125)I-NT in membrane competition or autoradiographic studies. NT contracted sigmoid colon circular muscle strips with a pD(2) value of 6.8 +/- 0.2 nM (n = 25). The contractile responses to NT were significantly potentiated in the presence of tetrodotoxin (1 microM), indicating a neural component. Results from functional studies support actions for NT on both muscle and enteric neurons, consistent with the presence of NT receptors on circular muscle and ganglia of human sigmoid colon. The lack of inhibition by levocabastine suggests that the second binding site detected does not correspond to the NT2 receptor.  (+info)

Previous studies have shown that DNA alkylation is a common event in colorectal tissue but the source of exposure to the methylating agents remains to be identified. These results confirm our previous study in a separate population of patients with colorectal disease,8 in demonstrating that colorectal DNA, obtained from individuals with malignant colorectal disease, contains detectable amounts of the pro-mutagenic and pro-carcinogenic lesionO 6-MedG. Furthermore, evidence from the current study indicates thatO 6-MedG levels vary within the large bowel as (i) DNA alkylation was higher in normal tissue from the sigmoid colon and rectum than in the proximal colon, (ii) only 13% of paired normal and tumour DNA samples obtained from the proximal colon were both alkylated compared with 21% in the sigmoid colon and 42% in the rectum, and (iii) O 6-MedG levels in tumour DNA from the proximal colon (but not the sigmoid colon or rectum) were greater than those in normal DNA..

Premalignant colonic growth. Endoscopic view of a benign (non-cancerous) but premalignant tubular adenoma (lower centre to lower right) in the sigmoid colon. Premalignant conditions are ones which, if left untreated, may develop into cancer. Adenomas are growths that arise from glands. In the colon these are an important early warning of potential cancer development. The sigmoid colon is the final part of the large intestine (colon) and joins to the rectum. The colon is mainly responsible for extracting water and salt from solid wastes before they are eliminated from the body. - Stock Image C001/2427

How can you tell the difference between angina vs. a heart attack? The two conditions are very closely related and have dangerously similar symptoms that can make them difficult to tell apart.. Despite sometimes being considered a chronic condition, angina can be manageable through various means as long as its detected and treated early on. Medical professionals view angina as a potential precursor or warning sign of an impending heart attack or severe heart condition. Typically characterized by sensations of pain or pressure felt in the chest area, particularly the heart, angina develops when theres a blockage in the arteries that causes them to tighten, preventing them from supplying sufficient amounts of blood and oxygen to the heart.. While angina isnt believed to be a symptom of a heart attack, its certainly a warning sign that you may be on the fast track to suffering one.

This is another post not for the squeamish, just so you know.. As my wife noted to me today, its easy to get a bit blasé at the Cancer Agency-everyone there is dealing with cancer, and it almost seems normal. But today, after my final radiation treatment (yay!) and an excellent Mexican lunch with our friend Steven, I took a brief nap in his guest room and then walked to St. Pauls Hospital to meet with my surgeon, Dr. Brown. His news was not unexpected, but it wasnt the best case scenario either.. The upshot: when I have my tumour surgery in July, Dr. Brown recommends removing everything in my bowel from the bottom of my sigmoid colon on down, leaving with me no functioning rectum, and meaning that I will need a colostomy bag for the rest of my life.

hi hoagiemom,. I also had Stage III colon cancer in my sigmoid colon. I too had 2 positive lymph nodes (out of the 19) that were close to the site. No mets (thank god).. I had my diagnostics and surgery done at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN which is world renowned. The adjuvant chemo that was recommended was 5FU and Leucovorin. My oncologist is wonderful. I declined the chemo and instead went on an alternate route of Eastern Medicine with dietary modifications and juicing of fresh organic veggies being the foundation of my protocol. Cancer likes an acidic blood pH so my goal has been to stay alkaline. Juicing organic green veggies helps me do this. Cancer cannot live in an alkaline environment. Cancer likes sugar and processed foods. Cancer cells have more sugar receptors than healthy cells so it gobbles up the sugar and goes on a feeding frenzy. thats one reason why diet is so vital in healing cancer. Juicing also provides live enzymes which are integral to a healthy body.. I also took many ...

Sigmoid colon volvulus, also known as sigmoid volvulus, is a common cause of bowel obstruction and constipation. It is common in Asia, India (7% of intestinal obstruction) and especially South India because of the high fibre diet. It is very common cause of large bowel obstruction in Peru and Bolivia due to high altitude. Pain in abdomen - initially left-sided, eventually all over Absolute constipation Enormous distension of abdomen Late vomiting and eventually dehydration Features of peritonitis Hiccough and retching may occur Tyre-like feel of the abdomen is diagnostic The condition is more common in males and with old age. It is also common in people with chronic constipation and laxative abuse. It is common in: Ogilvie syndrome Individuals with learning difficulties Chagas disease Hypothyroidism Anticholinergic drugs Multiple sclerosis Scleroderma Parkinsons disease In sigmoid, volvulus rotation is always anticlockwise. It requires one and a half rotation to cause vascular obstruction and ...

Endometriosis is a relatively common condition in women of reproductive age. Malignant transformation of intestinal endometriosis is a very rare event. We report a case in which a patient with a history of endometriosis underwent surgery for malignant intestinal endometriosis. A 55-year-old woman complained of rectorrhagia and intermittent abdominal pain. A neoplasm was revealed by colonoscopy, CT scan and F18-FDG PET/CT of the recto-sigmoidal colon. The patient underwent a rectal anterior resection, hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy for treatment. According to the histological and immunohistochemical presentation, the diagnosis of endometriosis-associated recto-sigmoid cancer was confirmed. The patient was treated with adjuvant chemotherapy for 6 months. During the follow-up appointment 22 months later, there was clinical and radiographic evidence of recurrence in the rectum. The patient received chemotherapy again and will receive another surgery after two more cycles of chemotherapy.

Bowel endometriosis is invariably associated with other significant endometriosis (eg endometrioma/chocolate cysts, or adenomyosis). Bowel endometriosis tends to slowly and progressively worsen in women who are pre-menopausal. It is rare for the bowel to be obstructed by endometriosis.. When the bowel is involved, there is generally a range of symptoms that a patient may experience; in particular, a cyclic change in bowel habit (diarrhoea, constipation or both) or cyclic bowel pain, always worst when the period is due. Women with bowel-related endometriosis will almost invariably have reduced fertility. Sometimes it is necessary to correct the pelvic and bowel endometriosis before a woman can conceive naturally. It is usual for patients with documented bowel endometriosis to experience back pain, sex pain and ovulation pain.. Investigating bowel pain by pelvic ultrasound scan or MRI scan is always a good starting point. The scan must be very specific, by an ultrasonologist or radiologist trained ...
Nursing diagnosis for sigmoid resection - Interpretations and ideas are to have budget surpluses experience. Haque Omar Sultan and.
OBJECTIVES: To study bowel ischaemia in transfemorally placed endoluminal grafting (TPEG) for abdominal aortic aneurysms, and any relation to cytokine response or postoperative fever. DESIGN: Prospective not randomised. University hospital setting. MATERIAL: Fourteen cases of conventional surgery and 23 cases of endovascular technique for infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. METHODS: Tonometry was used for sigmoid colon pH, and ELISAs for serum IL-6. RESULTS: Mucosal pH in the sigmoid colon fell significantly during clamping and reperfusion in both groups. Lowest measured sigmoid colon pH was 7.10 in the open group, compared to 7.22 in the TPEG group (p , 0.05). The IL-6 levels in serum peaked after 4 h of reperfusion; 249 pg/ml in the open group, compared to 89 pg/ml in the TPEG group (p , 0.05). High levels of IL-6 in the postoperative period and persisting low sigmoidal pH were associated with serious complications. Postoperative temperature did not differ significantly between the ...
During an end sigmoid diversion colostomy, the end of the sigmoid colon is brought through the abdominal wall, where it may be turned under, like a cuff. The edges of the colon are then stitched to the skin of the abdominal wall to form an opening called a stoma. Stool drains from the stoma into a bag or pouch attached to the abdomen.
Paul Hengens recent TIBS column (February 1997) has prompted me to clarify points regarding our observation that wooden toothpicks inhibit PCR reactions using Taq or Vent polymerase (BioTechniques 18, 225 1995). We previously used wooden toothpicks to transfer bacterial colonies directly to PCR reactions for screening. It wasnt until we tried to reduce enzyme costs by lowing the amount of Taq per reaction that we noticed inhibition of the reaction by wooden toothpicks. The point of the paper is that by using plastic rather than wood, the amount of enzyme can be significantly reduced resulting in a significant savings for labs that do a lot of screening. We were not saying that all PCR reactions are inhibited by wooden toothpicks, only those using relatively small amounts of enzyme. My guess is that those who have no problems using wooden toothpicks could use less enzyme if they switched to plastic. This is a great technique whether you use wooden toothpicks with more enzyme or plastic ...
The colon extends from the end of the ileum to the rectum. The cecum, ascending colon, hepatic flexure, and proximal transverse colon comprise the right colon. The distal transverse colon, splenic flexure, descending colon, sigmoid colon, and rectosigmoid comprise the left colon (Figure 30-1). The ascending and descending portions are fixed to the retroperitoneum, and the transverse colon and sigmoid colon are suspended in the peritoneal cavity by their mesocolons. The caliber of the lumen is greatest at the cecum and diminishes distally. The wall of the colon has four layers: mucosa, submucosa, muscularis, and serosa (Figure 30-2). The muscularis propria consists of an inner circular layer and an outer longitudinal layer. The longitudinal muscle completely encircles the colon in a very thin layer, and at three points around the circumference it is gathered into thick bands called taeniae coli. Sacculations (haustra) are the result of shortening of the colon by the taeniae and contractions of ...
The sigmoid colon has been cut across at the point where it descends into the pelvic cavity.

From the small bowel, the residual material drains into the large intestine (or colon). The colon is about 6 feet in length and begins with the cecum, extends into the ascending colon, the transverse colon, the descending colon, the sigmoid colon and finally the rectum and anus. The function of the colon is to absorb water and salts and bacteria also interacts with the liquid waste matter in the colon assisting with the conversion to feces or stool. This interaction with bacteria contributes to the formation of gas or flatus. Stool is stored primarily in the descending colon and sigmoid colon where it moves into the rectum ...

Cathy...sorry to read of all your medical adventures. You wouldnt believe mine; I had incomplete rectal emptying starting in 2006 but moved a lot of stool every morning, just multiple trips to the loo. BUt made me late for work took 2-4 hours to feel done. So had a special image test and was diagnosed with a sigmoidocele. That means sigmoid colon flops over and blocks off rectum. For this 3 colorectal docs said you have the sigmoid colon removed. I did that, but the surgeons I went to also raised my bladder that was not falling; raised my vagina which was not falling, fixed a rectocele that was very small, removed both ovaries when only one needed removing due to benign large cyst, and for whatever reason removed the top of my rectum (just for good measure I guess; no diseased tissue.) So my rectum, colon, and small intestines scarred in and I could not poop or eat for 13 months. Had to see 10 docs at 7 medical centers before I found one who could do all that could be done. Lysis of very dense ...

Many natural processes, such as those of complex system learning curves, exhibit a progression from small beginnings that accelerates and approaches a climax over time. When a specific mathematical model is lacking, a sigmoid function is often used.[3] The van Genuchten-Gupta model is based on an inverted S-curve and applied to the response of crop yield to soil salinity. Examples of the application of the logistic S-curve to the response of crop yield (barley) to both the soil salinity and depth to water table in the soil are shown in logistic function#In agriculture: modeling crop response. In artificial neural networks, sometimes non-smooth functions are used instead for efficiency; these are known as hard sigmoids. ...

Abstract:. Isolated involvement of rectosigmoid region is very rare. Such cases are difficult to diagnose clinically due to their nonspecific and atypical presentations. This may leads to misdiagnosis and sometimes unplanned treatment. A 65‑year‑old female had operated for suspected traumatic intestinal obstruction with operative findings suggestive of carcinoma rectosigmoid region. Later on, investigations had proved the case to be tuberculosis of that region without any other signs. Thus, a thorough knowledge of the various presentations of rectosigmoid tuberculosis is important in order to improve patient management.. ...
Continued From Above... The descending colon is a hollow tube that is part of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Its diameter is roughly 2.5 inches (7 cm), while its length is approximately 9 to 10 inches (25 cm). It contains many small pouches, known as haustra, along its length that increase its surface area and help to move feces through the colon. At its superior end, the descending colon connects to the transverse colon at the splenic flexure just inferior to the spleen. From the splenic flexure, the descending colon extends inferiorly toward the left hip before turning about 90 degrees to the right and forming the sigmoid colon.. Like all parts of the gastrointestinal tract, the descending colon consists of four major tissue layers surrounding a hollow lumen. The mucosa forms the innermost layer that surrounds the lumen and is in contact with fecal matter stored in the colon. Mucosa is a mucous membrane made of simple columnar epithelial tissue and a thin underlying layer of areolar ...

Is it poop yet? (Well call it feces [sounds like fee-cees] or stool from now on rather than poop or other s words) Getting close. There are many sections to the large bowel - the appendix, caecum, ascending (rising) colon, transverse (across) colon, descending (going down) colon, sigmoid colon, the rectum and the anus. The main purposes of the large intestine is to pass remaining essential nutrients into the bloodstream and the storage and elimination of waste left-overs. As the nutritional fluids are absorbed and transfered out to the bloodstream, the contents get more solid and compact ...
That was me...lol...squamous cell carcinoma in the first rectal fold.. I had a 2 inch tumor, and my treating docs didnt know quite which treatment path to follow....this was anal cancer in the rectum.... So, lucky for me, they decided to choose the type of cancer, not where it was. Chemo with 5FU and cisplatin. Rads concurrent. Their main goal was to reduce the tumor size so that I had the best chance of saving my spinchter.. It worked so well, that by the time I saw the surgeon (who, BTW, specializes in low bowel resections....VERY important!!!!) there was nothing left to see of the tumor. We decided, based on my age (49) and my family situation (2 special needs kids) that we would go ahead with the resection, so I had a J-pouch procedure...removed my rectum, sigmoid colon and fashioned a new rectum from my descending colon. Total hysterectomy at the same time (I wasnt using this organ anymore, and it made the field for the resection easier to see). 5 years later, its still doing well, and ...

A three-layered neural network having n hidden-layer units can implement a mapping of n points in Rd onto R. In this paper, the activation function of hidden-layer units is extended to higher-dimensional functions, so that the sigmoid function defined on R and the radial basis function defined on Rd can be treated on a common basis. We assume that activation functions cannot be scaled. Even under this restriction, a wide class of functions can be activation functions for the mapping of a finite number of points. If the support of the Fourier transform of a slowly increasing function includes a converging sequence of points on a line, it can be an activation function for the mapping of points without scaling. This condition does not depend on the dimension of the space on which the activation function is defined; both the logistic function on R and the Gauss kernel on Rd satisfy it. The result extends the work of Ito and Saito (1996), in which the activation function is restricted to sigmoid ...

So what is the right way to lose weight and keep it off? Its easier said than done - take it from me! But the best and only way is proper nutrition, enough calories and a lot of exercise.
