  • Corrosive injuries of the upper gastrointestinal tract

    • Authors: Babu Lal Meena, Kumar Shwetanshu Narayan, Gopal Goyal, Surendar Sultania, Sandeep Nijhawan
      Pages: 165 - 169
      Abstract: Babu Lal Meena, Kumar Shwetanshu Narayan, Gopal Goyal, Surendar Sultania, Sandeep Nijhawan

      Corrosive injury of the upper gastrointestinal tract is a worldwide clinical problem, mostly occurring in children. Alkaline agents produce deeper injuries whereas acidic agents produce superficial injuries usually. Hoarseness, stridor, and respiratory distress indicate airway injury. Dysphagia, odynophagia, and drooling of saliva suggest esophageal injury whereas abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting are indicative of stomach injury. X-rays should be done to rule out perforation. Endoscopy is usually recommended in the first 12–48 h although it is safe up to 96 h after caustic ingestion. Endoscopy should be performed with caution and gentle insufflation. Initial management includes getting intravenous access and replacement of fluids. Hyperemia and superficial ulcerations have excellent recovery while deeper injuries require total parenteral nutrition or feeding jejunostomy. Patients suspected of perforation should be subjected to laparotomy. Common complications after corrosive injury are esophageal stricture, gastric outlet obstruction, and development of esophageal and gastric carcinoma.

  • Successful endoscopic management of bile leak: A single-center experience

    • Authors: Vinay Pawar, Nikhil Sonthalia, Sunil Pawar, Ravindra Surude, Qais Contractor, Pravin Rathi

      Background and Aims: Bile leak is a rarely encountered complication most commonly occurring in the setting of biliary tract surgery. Site of leak may be from the gallbladder bed, the cystic duct, or rarely from injury to a major bile duct. Management has evolved with from radical surgery prevalent in earlier days to recent increased expertise in biliary endoscopy. This study aims to determine the impact of endoscopic management in treating symptomatic bile leak and discusses the role of surgery. Patients and Methods: In this retrospective study, patients with symptomatic bile leak admitted between 2012 and 2015 to the Department of Gastroenterology of a tertiary care center in Western India were analyzed. Site and extent of bile leak was evaluated using contrast enhanced computed tomography or magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) was mainly used as a therapeutic tool rather than a diagnostic tool. ERCP was used as a primary mode of treatment wherever feasible. Percutaneous biliary drainage was used in technically difficult cases. Results: Twenty-seven patients with symptomatic bile leak were identified in aforesaid period. Bile leak in 21 (77.88%) patients was due to postlaparoscopic cholecystectomy injury, while in 6 (22.22%) patients, it was associated with liver abscess. Major bile duct injury was seen in 10 patients with postcholecystectomy status and in 5 patients with liver abscess. Out of 27 cases, 25 (92.59%) were treated with ERCP and 2 (7.40%) with percutaneous drainage. Surgery was not required in any of the patients. Sphincterotomy with stent placement for 6 weeks was effective in 23 (92%) patients, and only sphincterotomy was effective in 2 (8%) patients undergoing ERCP. There was no mortality due to bile leak. Conclusion: Most patients presenting with bile leak including major bile duct injury without complete bile duct transection can be successfully treated by endoscopic therapy without the need for surgery.

      Background and Aim: Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) is a procedure of choice for the diagnostic evaluation of submucosal and periluminal lesions. Tissue sample can be obtained by EUS-FNA cytology (FNAC) or cell block (CB). The aim of the present study is to compare diagnostic yield of EUS-FNA CB and cytology in the absence of onsite pathologist following a protocol-based EUS-FNA approach in solid lesions. Patients and Methods: Participants who underwent EUS-FNA at our center for solid submucosal or periluminal lesions (pancreas, lymph node, and liver) between 2014 and 2016 were included, retrospectively. The indication for the procedure along with the clinical and other investigation details and the final etiological diagnosis were recorded on uniform structured data forms. The diagnostic yield of cytology and CB were compared using McNemar's test. The P < 0.05 was considered statistically significant. Results: EUS-FNA for solid lesion was performed in 130 lesions in 101 patients during the study period. Their mean age was 52.5 ± 12 years and 42.5% were female. Pancreatic masses were the most common lesions (37.7%) followed by lymph nodes (36.9%). Submucosal lesions (17.7%) and liver lesions (7.7%) accounted for rest of the cases. The overall diagnostic yield for EUS-FNAC (70%) and CB (74.6%) was not significantly different (P = 0.3) and their combined yield was 85.3%. For the 23 patients with submucosal lesion, diagnostic yield of CB (82.6%) was significantly better than cytology (47.8%, P = 0.04). Conclusions: EUS-guided CB has better yield compared to cytology in gastrointestinal submucosal lesions. The combination of CB with cytology improves the overall yield of the procedure; and hence, they should be considered complimentary rather than alternatives.

      Background and Aim: Pneumatic balloon dilation is one of the most commonly used and effective methods for treating patients with achalasia cardia. This study was performed to assess immediate and long-term response of pneumatic dilatation (PD) in these patients. Materials and Methods: Forty-four achalasia cardia patients, who underwent PD in our center from January 2013 to December 2015, were prospectively studied. Data from these patients were analyzed for clinical improvement in symptoms after dilatation procedure over this period as per Eckardt score. Patients who required repeated procedure and factors influencing remission of symptoms were analyzed. Results: A total of 44 patients underwent PD, among which three lost to follow up. Of the 41 patients, 21 were male (51.22%) and 20 were females (48.78%). Mean age was 38.68 (13–64) years. Median symptom duration before first dilatation was 18 months (2–240). Major symptoms at presentation were dysphagia (n = 41, 100%), regurgitation (n = 38 92.68%), chest pain (n = 31, 75.6%), and weight loss (n = 20, 48.78%). Mean follow-up period was 22.22 months (9–38). Forty (97.56%) patients had immediate clinical improvement after 1 dilatation, of which 38 (92.68%) patients did not require any further treatment. Mean Eckardt score was 6.82 (4–11) at the time of first dilatation which improved to 0.66 during follow-up. Two patients required second dilatation (one 5 months and other 18 months after the first procedure). Conclusion: PD is a safe and effective long-term therapy for achalasia cardia and has a good long-term clinical remission.

      Bronchobiliary fistula (BBF) is a tract between the biliary system and bronchial tree with the presence of bile in the bronchus and the sputum. They are rare but serious complications. In most cases, they are caused by hepatic or subphrenic abscesses, resulting from different conditions. Pulmonary symptoms dominate the clinical picture, and the main manifestations are chronic irritant cough, production of greenish sputum, bronchopneumonia, and dyspnea. The diagnosis of BBF can be confirmed by imaging procedures such as biliary scintigraphy with hepatobiliary iminodiacetic acid, percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography, or endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography. Bronchoscopy can demonstrate the presence of bile in the bronchial tree and may delineate the site of fistula. The treatment strategy for patients with BBF and biliary tract obstruction is the reestablishment of bile drainage, which allows the fistula to heal by reducing intrabiliary pressure. We present two cases of biliary-bronchial fistula, one related to hepatic abscess and the other due to percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage for common bile duct obstruction secondary to inoperable hilar cholangiocarcinoma.

      Cytomegalovirus (CMV) colitis usually affects immunocompromised hosts. We report a patient with type 2 diabetes mellitus who presented with massive lower gastrointestinal bleed due to CMV colitis, which proved to be fatal. Awareness about this life-threatening entity is important in patients who have impaired immune response.

      Anomalous pancreaticobiliary ductal union (APBDU) can cause recurrent acute pancreatitis. We describe the case of a 16-year-old boy with recurrent acute pancreatitis. The discussion provides a review of recent literature, supporting use of various diagnostic modalities and surgery as choice of treatment.

      Abstract: Vineet Kumar Gupta, Ram Chandra Soni
      Journal of Digestive Endoscopy 2017 8(4):199-201
      We report a very rare case and probably the first from India of gastric outlet obstruction due to a large intramural duodenal hematoma following combination endotherapy with hemoclipping and injection adrenaline 1:10,000 for actively bleeding duodenal ulcer in an elderly male patient with diabetes, hypertension, and end-stage renal disease on maintenance hemodialysis. The patient improved to approximately 6 weeks of conservative treatment with nasojejunal feeding.

  • Rectal dieulafoy&#39;s lesion: An underrecognized cause of lower
           gastrointestinal bleeding

    • Authors: Vipul D Yagnik
      Pages: 202 - 204
      Abstract: Vipul D Yagnik
      Journal of Digestive Endoscopy 2017 8(4):202-204
      Dieulafoy's lesion is a rare but potentially a life-threatening condition. It accounts for 1%–2% of acute gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding. The lesion is most frequently located in the stomach and may be located anywhere in the alimentary tract. It can be present as severe GI bleeding or chronic GI blood loss. The cause of lesion remains uncertain. The range of clinical presentation varies from acute ill hospitalized patients as well as in the newborn.
