  • Intraductal ultrasonography in pancreatobiliary diseases

    • Authors: Rinkesh Kumar Bansal, Narendra S Choudhary, Rajesh Puri, Zubin Sharma, Saurabh Patle, Gaurav Kumar Patil
      Pages: 115 - 118
      Abstract: Rinkesh Kumar Bansal, Narendra S Choudhary, Rajesh Puri, Zubin Sharma, Saurabh Patle, Gaurav Kumar Patil
      Journal of Digestive Endoscopy 2017 8(3):115-118
      Intraductal ultrasonography (IDUS) utilizes probe catheter and operates at a higher frequency (12–30 MHz). It can be passed down the biopsy channel of a side-view endoscope during endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, and it provides real-time, high-quality imaging of pancreatobiliary ducts and the surrounding structures. IDUS has been used in defining choledocholithiasis, evaluating biliary as well as pancreatic strictures or thickening, and local staging of tumor. We shall discuss the utility of IDUS in the current review.

      Background: The histological nature of polyps by site prevalence and size is unclear. Aim: To determine the prevalence of polyps in patients undergoing routine lower gastrointestinal (LGI) endoscopy and identify the histological types and their characteristics by age, location and size. Materials and Methods: For this retrospective study, patients undergoing ileocolonoscopy or sigmoidoscopy between 2014 and 2016 were included. Data on age, gender, test indication, site and size of polyps and histology type were collected. Results: Two hundred and ninety (12.7%) of 2303 patients who underwent LGI endoscopy had colonic polyps (n= 317; single in 272 patients). The median age was 61.1 years (range 5-99 years) and 223 (76.4%) were men. Polyps were rare <40 years age (7.3%). By site, the polyp frequency in right colon was 6.9%, 3.9% in left colon and 4.6% in the rectum. Two thirds of polyps (64%) were <1cm size. The 3 common polyp types were adenomatous (48.9%), hyperplastic (23.7%), and inflammatory (22.4%). Adenomatous polyps were common above 60 years (p <0.0002), located often in right (35.5%) or left colon (42.6%), large in size (54.2%) and showed low grade dysplasia (89.7%). Hyperplastic polyps were most common in the middle aged and in the rectum (p <0.00001). Inflammatory polyps were the most common type below 40 years age. Almost all hyperplastic and inflammatory polyps were <1cm size (93.3% and 87.3%). Conclusions: Adenomatous polyps were the commonest type; especially >60 years age. High grade dysplasia and carcinoma were rare (10.3%). While two-thirds of polyps <1cm size were inflammatory or hyperplastic, 86% of large polyps were adenomatous.

  • Helicobacter pylori infection in patients with portal hypertensive
           gastropathy owing to liver cirrhosis: Prevalence and relation with
           severity of gastropathy

      Background and Aim: Helicobacter pylori is a major human pathogen. Its role in the pathogenesis of portal hypertensive gastropathy (PHG) is debated. The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of this infection in patients with portal hypertension due to liver cirrhosis and its relation with severity of gastropathy. Patients and Methods: Sixty consecutive patients with liver cirrhosis were enrolled in the study. All patients were subjected to an upper gastrointestinal endoscopy (UGIE), and rapid urease testing for H. pylori was performed. The diagnosis and severity of PHG was evaluated on UGIE. Child-Turcotte-Pugh (CTP) and model for end-stage liver disease (MELD) scores were calculated to assess the severity of liver cirrhosis. Results: H. pylori infection was reported in 33 patients with overall prevalence 55%. The presence of H. pylori was observed in 26 (67%) cirrhotic patients with PHG compared to 7 (33%) cirrhotic patients without PHG. The risk estimate showed a significant association between H. pylori and PHG in cirrhotic patients (P = 0.0133, odds ratio [OR]: 4.00, 95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.298–12.325). Out of the 26 patients with PHG and H. pylori infection, 17 had severe PHG (65.3%) and 9 had mild PHG (34.6%) whereas 4 patients had severe PHG (30.8%) and 9 had mild PHG (69.2%%) in the group of H. pylori-negative patients. The difference was statistically significant (P = 0.04, OR: 4.25, 95% CI: 1.0188–17.729). Of the 39 patients with PHG, 21 (53.85%) had severe PHG and 18 (46.15%) had mild PHG. No significant relation was found between H. pylori infection and severity of liver cirrhosis as regards CTP score (P = 0.76) and MELD score (P = 0.56).Conclusion: Our results showed a significant association between H. pylori infection and the occurrence and also the severity of gastropathy in patients with liver cirrhosis. Yet, the severity of liver cirrhosis itself did not correlate with H. pylori or the severity of gastropathy.

  • Is it worth to repeat endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreaticography
           after failed precut? Short report from a tertiary care hospital in North
           India

      Aim: The aim of this study is to determine the success rate of biliary cannulation in cases where endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is repeated after failed precut sphincterotomy. Materials and Methods: In this retrospective study, consecutive ERCPs performed between August 2013 and June 2017 were included. Data was analyzed for indication of ERCP, success rate at initial cannulation attempt, use of precut sphincterotomy, biliary access rate after precut, repeat ERCP rate, and associated complications. Results: A total of 1872 ERCPs were included in the study. Of these, 55% were done for common bile duct stones, 37% for malignant biliary obstruction, and 8% for biliary leak. During the initial ERCP, 84.9% cases had successful biliary cannulation. Nearly 86.8% cases undergoing precut sphincterotomy achieved biliary access. Repeat ERCP was done in 28 cases after a median interval of 3 days and biliary cannulation was achieved in 78.5% cases. Conclusion: Repeat ERCP after 3 days in cases of failed initial precut sphincterotomy should be practiced and recommended as this allows definitive biliary therapy in majority of such patients and prevents morbidity and mortality from other invasive alternative therapies.

      Leech or Hirudinea is a major parasite in rural India. Normally, the leech attacks the skin and exposed areas. An 18-year-old child presented with bleeding per rectum for 1 day along with giddiness. A history revealed that while the boy was working in a field, had acrawling sensation in the perianal area. After admission, the patient was resuscitated with crystalloids and a limited colonoscopy revealed a rectal ulcer with a leech head attached to its base. The hooklets were removed using foreign body removal forceps and injection Adrenaline at 1:10,000 dilutions was injected in 1 ml aliquots into four quadrant to achieve hemostasis. There was no postprocedure complication. Leech infestation can present with exsanguinating acute severe lower gastrointestinal bleed.

      Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disorder generally affects young to middle-aged women, commonly presenting as a triad of fever, rash, and joint pain but can affect multiple organs and can present in a complex fashion, varying based on the degree and severity of organ involvement. The differential for abdominal pain and diarrhea in SLE is vast and can include VIPomas, serositis, pancreatitis, intestinal vasculitis, and protein – losing enteropathy, gluten – enteropathy, intestinal pseudo-obstruction, and infection. The pathology of lupus enterits thought to be immune-complex deposition and complement activation, with subsequent mucosal edema. We present a case of a woman with no history of SLE, but with a prolonged course of abdominal pain, diarrhoea and vomiting and eventual diagnoses of lupus enteritis.

      Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a common cause of colitis, particularly in immunosuppressed patients. Rarely, CMV can present as a mass lesion that endoscopically appears consistent with adenocarcinoma. There are no reported cases of a CMV mass lesion inducing rectal prolapse. We present a case of CMV colitis presenting as a rectal mass mimicking adenocarcinoma and causing rectal prolapse in an immunosuppressed female.

      The leiomyoma is a benign smooth muscle tumor and may occur throughout the entire digestive tract, more frequently in the stomach, and small intestine, but is rarely seen in large bowel. Furthermore, a colonic giant pedunculated leiomyoma is very rare. The traditional management option for a colonic leiomyoma is surgical resection. However, the endoloop-assisted polypectomy could be the treatment of choice even for very large lesions.

      A 4-year old child, previously operated case of tetralogy of Fallot present with recurrent episodes of massive lower gastrointestinal bleed of one year duration. Endoscopic evaluation revealed multiple bluish vascular lesions in the duodenum and proximal jejunum and a single rectal polyp. Histology of the lesion was suggestive of venous malformation consistent with blue rubber bleb nevus syndrome (BRBNS). Child underwent endoscopic snaring and surgical resection with end to end anastomosis. At six months' follow-up child was asymptomatic without any bleed episodes.

      Duodenojejunal (DJ) flexure perforation is very rare. DJ flexure perforation following endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) has not be documented till date. They are associated with significant morbidity and mortality. We present an ERCP-induced DJ flexure perforation which has been treated with primary closure in two layers at our institution. To the best of our knowledge, this is the world's first case. Such site of ERCP-induced perforation has not been reported in literature till date. A 75-year-old female patient underwent repeated ERCP for obstructive jaundice. There was perforation during the third ERCP while removing the larger stone. Emergency laparotomy was performed with primary closure of perforation in two layers. ERCP-induced DJ flexure perforation has not yet been documented. It is potentially life-threatening. Early recognition may lead to a better prognosis through earlier intervention.

      Gastrointestinal duplication cysts are rare congenital abnormalities that are usually seen in childhood. Colonic duplication cyst is very rare in adults and is usually asymptomatic. We report a 42-year-old female with a duplication cyst in the proximal ascending colon who presented with recurrent episodes of colicky abdominal pain. The cyst could be well visualized on colonoscopy and the patient underwent successful right hemicolectomy with ileotransverse anastomosis.
