Relationship between Biliary Lithiasis and Subclinical Hypothyroidism: Myth or Truth?

Authors: Salem Bouomrani, Nour Elhouda Ayadi and Fahd Saadaoui

Abstract: With an average prevalence in the general population at 4-15% and more than 20% in the elderly, subclinical hypothyroidism (SCH) is the most common thyroid dysfunction. The clinical and biological impact of SCH is sometimes atypical, unusual, and very challenging in current medical practice. Among these atypical manifestations of SCH, some publications have suspected a particularly promoting role in the genesis of biliary lithiasis.

Beneficial Effect of a Juice-Based Probiotic for Colon Health

Authors: Howard F Robins and A Reza Kamarei

Abstract: The colon is considered “unhealthy” when chronic diseases, conditions and disorders (e.g., Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Inflammatory Bowel Disease such as Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis) are present. Also, digestive irregularities or discomfort happen when diarrhea or constipation is present. The causes of occasional diarrhea include microbial infection, antibiotic-associated diarrhea, traveler’s

Intestinal Metastasis of Primary Lung Tumour as a Cause of Intestinal Wall Thickening: A Case Report

Authors: Edgar Lorente, Carmen Bodlak, Andrea Manrique and Tomás Ripollés

Abstract: We describe the case of a 73-year-old male patient with personal history of pulmonary malignancy, who in a follow up scan, presented multiple areas of nodular wall thickening of small bowel loops. Ultrasound revealed hypoechoic areas of mural thickening with well-defined borders and loss of the layered echostructure of the intestinal wall.

Authors: Sonia Yáñez Castaño, Patricia Carreño Morán, Piedad Arias Rodríguez, Sara De la mano González, Blanca Prieto García, Andrea Verdú Seguí, Antonio Ignacio Sagredo Barra, Fátima Cano Mateos, Mª Carmen Maciá Fernández and Juan Emmanuel Sánchez Lara

Abstract: Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are the most common mesenchymal tumors of the gastrointestinal tract. Although GISTs can appear at any gastrointestinal tract location, they are usually found in stomach (60%-70%), followed by small bowel (20%-30%). Less frequently, they can appear in colon, rectum, appendix, esophagus, mesentery, omentum, or retroperitoneum

Acute Mesenteric Ischemia, a Troublesome Diagnosis

Authors: Blanca Prieto García, Piedad Arias Rodríguez, Fátima Cano Mateos, José Francisco Asensio Calle and Sonia Yáñez Castaño

Abstract: Acute mesenteric ischemia (AMI) is an infrequent cause of acute hospital admission with a reported mortality rate of 50- 90% that requires early diagnosis and treatment. If untreated, AMI can cause mesenteric infarction, intestinal necrosis and death. Early intervention can reverse this process leading to a full recovery, but the diagnosis is often difficult to establish.

Virtual Reality Technology and 3D Reconstruction in Hepatectomy

Authors: Cheng-Gang Li and Zhi-Peng Zhou

Abstract: Three dimensional (3D) reconstruction can realize the accurate preoperative diagnosis of liver and intrahepatic tumors, and can also help to complete the preoperative operation planning. 3D visual surgical navigation technology has been applied in liver surgery. Virtual reality (VR) technology is still in the primary stage of research and development. It can only simulate the operation of 3D reconstruction model of liver

Authors: Juan Emmanuel Sánchez Lara, Omar Abdel-lah Fernandez, Maria Lourdes Hernandez Cosido, Sixto Carrero García, Isidro de Jesus Jimenez Vaquero, Teresa Rubio Sánchez, Pedro Antonio Montalban Valverde, Raquel Rodríguez García, Luis Muñoz Bellvis and Felipe Carlos Parreño Manchado

Abstract: Congenital diaphragmatic hernia of Morgagni-Larrey is an uncommon entity that usually presents on the right side. It accounts for only 3% of all diaphragmatic hernias. These hernias, occurring in the anterior midline through the sternocostal hiatus of the diaphragm, are usually discovered incidentally when the patient has reached adulthood, or when they become symptomatic due to intestinal involvement (occlusive symptoms) or when respiratory dysfunction occurs
