Enteral stenting for gastric outlet obstruction and afferent limb syndrome following pancreaticoduodenectomy.
Ann Gastroenterol
PUBLISHED: 04-28-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Obstruction of the afferent or efferent limbs of a gastrojejunal anastomosis is a potential complication after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) resulting in either gastric outlet obstruction or afferent limb syndrome. The use of self-expanding metal stents for the management of anastomotic strictures after resection of pancreatic cancer has not been well studied. We present four such cases and review published data regarding this population.

Laparo-endoscopic transgastric resection of gastric submucosal tumors.
Surg Endosc
PUBLISHED: 03-03-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Laparoscopic and endoluminal surgical techniques have evolved and allowed improvements in the methods for treating benign and malignant gastrointestinal diseases. To date, only case reports have been reported on the application of a laparo-endoscopic approach for resecting gastric submucosal tumors (SMT). In this study, we aimed to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and oncologic outcomes of a laparo-endoscopic transgastric approach to resect tumors that would traditionally require either a laparoscopic or open surgical approach. Herein, we present the largest single institution series utilizing this technique for the resection of gastric SMT in North America.

Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) of lymph nodes is used for staging of gastrointestinal malignancies. False-positive rates of 5?%?-?7?% are not well understood. Elements of EUS examinations that contribute to false-positive cytological findings were investigated.

Transesophageal endoscopic myotomy (TEEM) for the treatment of achalasia: the United States human experience.
Surg Endosc
PUBLISHED: 03-23-2013
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
From our early experience with NOTES, our group has acquired familiarity with transesophageal submucosal dissection and myotomy in swine model, which allowed us to perfect a model to perform purely endoscopic transesophageal myotomy (TEEM) for the treatment of achalasia and apply it into clinical practice. This study was designed to assess the safety, feasibility, and efficacy of TEEM in a series of patients with achalasia.

Broad clinical utilization of NOTES: is it safe?
Surg Endosc
PUBLISHED: 03-12-2013
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) has been the focus of several studies as a less invasive alternative to conventional laparoscopy to access and treat intracavitary organs. For the last 5 years, much has been accomplished with animal studies, yet the clinical utilization of this novel technique is still modest. After 2 years of experience in the laboratory, we started our clinical experience. We report our experience with clinical utilization of NOTES procedures from 2007 to 2010.

The International Per Oral Endoscopic Myotomy Survey (IPOEMS): a snapshot of the global POEM experience.

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Per oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) represents a Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES) approach to Heller myotomy. Even though we are now entering an exponential phase of growth with a large number of centers interested in POEM, published data to guide them are limited. As part of the July 2012 NOSCAR meeting, a conference was organized to review POEM and develop a consensus document. Authors SNS and TS who chaired the NOSCAR panel recognized the dearth of published data, which also may lag the rapid developments in POEM. Therefore, they undertook a survey of early POEM adopters around the world to rapidly obtain global, extensive, and current data on POEM. The raw survey data were made available to NOSCAR panel participants to assist with their presentations. We summarize the salient findings of the survey.

Natural orifice translumenal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) has the potential to decrease the burden of an operation on a patient. Limitations of the endoscopic platform require innovative solutions to provide retraction and create an operation comparable with the gold standard, laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

Endoscopic ultrasound staging and novel therapeutics for pancreatic cancer.
Surg. Oncol. Clin. N. Am.
PUBLISHED: 02-18-2010
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Pancreatic cancer remains a challenging disease, being the fourth leading cause of death in both men and women in the United States. Patients with pancreatic cancer present with symptoms including jaundice, pruritus, and weight loss, which often herald advanced disease with little chance for curative resection. Multiple imaging modalities are used to diagnose and stage pancreatic cancer. This article discusses the utility of endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) for diagnosis and staging, and introduces novel EUS-guided therapeutic options for the treatment of pancreatic cancers. EUS-guided fine-needle injection of chemotherapy agents is a promising development in pancreatic tumor treatment.

Autoimmune pancreatitis.
Expert Rev Clin Immunol
PUBLISHED: 02-24-2009
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Autoimmune pancreatitis is becoming a more widely recognized form of pancreatitis that can mimic pancreatic or biliary malignancy. The combination of serological, histological and radiographic findings makes it unique among pancreatic diseases. The presence of autoantibodies, IgG4 and a lymphoplasmacytic infiltrate reflect its autoimmune etiology. The dramatic response to steroids is also a distinguishing feature and differentiates it from other pancreatic diseases.

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Cross sectional imaging is important for initial evaluation of pancreatic cancer, whereas endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) will often help better visualize, differentiate and make final tissue diagnosis. It plays an important role in the multi-disciplinary evaluation and staging of pancreatic cancer as accurate staging has significant impact on treatment decisions.

Initial experience with an innovative endoscopic clipping system.
Surg Technol Int
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
There are few options for the treatment of fistulas, leaks, and perforations endoscopically. Here we describe our experience with an endoscopic clipping system. A retrospective review of all cases using the Over-The-Scope-Clip system (Ovesco Endoscopy AG, Tuebingen, Germany) was performed. The system was utilized in ten patients with gastrointestinal surgical complications. Four patients had gastric leaks following sleeve gastrectomy, one had a post-operative colonic leak, two had gastro-gastric fistulas following gastric bypass, and three had esophageal perforations. Two leak patients had complete resolution, one had a contained leak following clip placement that was clinically insignificant, and the fourth patient had a persistent leak despite two clipping procedures. Two patients had gastro-gastric fistulas following roux-en-y gastric bypass surgery and, while they both had initial success, the fistulas recurred. One patient presented with anastomotic leak following colon resection but the system was unable to reach the treatment site. Three patients were successfully treated for esophageal perforation. There were no complications. This over-the-scope endoscopic clip system is simple to use, safe, and successful in approximating tissue to treat traditionally difficult surgical complications. Further experience and longer follow-up are needed to assess its indications as related to defect size and location.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
