[Ab] Abstract:INTRODUCTION: Ureterocele is a cystic dilatation of the lower part of the ureter. It is a congenital anomaly that is associated with other anomalies such as a duplicated system, and other diseases. It poses a great challenge owing to its numerous types and clinical presentations. Its incidence is 1 in every 4000 individuals. One of its presentations in the adult population is the presence of a stone, usually a solitary stone, inside the ureterocele. CASE PRESENTATION: We are reporting a case of an adult ureterocele complicated by a large calculus; managed endoscopically with transurethral deroofing of the ureterocele followed by cystolitholapaxy. A literature review was also conducted. DISCUSSION: The pathogenesis of ureteroceles is not well understood, however many proposed mechanisms exist with the incomplete dissolution of chwalla membrane being the most accepted one. The type of ureterocele and age at presentation will help guide the appropriate investigation and management, nevertheless certain goals of treatment should apply to all cases. Adult ureterocele is usually clinically silent but it may co-exist with other conditions such as a ureteral calculus and in these conditions it can be managed endoscopically. CONCLUSION: Ureteroceles complicated by stones can be effectively managed with endoscopic resection or incision of the ureterocele coupled with stone removal, however long term follow up is required to monitor for hydronephrosis and iatrogenic vesicoureteric reflux.

[Ab] Abstract:STUDY OBJECTIVE: To present and discuss the hysteroscopic aspects of incarcerated omentum through uterine perforation caused by previous dilatation and curettage (D&C) for incomplete first-trimester abortion. DESIGN: Case report. SETTING: Constantine University Hospital, Constantine, Algeria. PATIENT: A 40-year-old, G3P2 patient, with a history of an incomplete first-trimester spontaneous abortion, treated 6 months before by D&C, requiring medical assistance due to moderate, chronic pelvic pain. No other clinical or biological alteration was found. The ultrasound showed intracavitary hyperechogenic formation, infiltrating the myometrium posteriorly. INTERVENTION: Hysteroscopy revealed a fat-like lesion, arousing suspicion of residual trophoblast while differential diagnosis included intramyometrial fat metaplasia as well. A mechanical cold loop resection was initiated. Instrumental manipulation of the mass released yellow drops, probably of lipid nature, subsequently leading to the discovery of an uterine perforation, giving passage to omentum. Histological examination confirmed fat tissue. There was immediate resolution of symptoms. Laparoscopic repair was subsequently performed and consisted of suturing the defect. There were no further complications. MAIN RESULT: Few cases of omentum incarceration in perforated uterus, diagnosed during laparotomy or by magnetic resonance, have previously been reported. To our knowledge, this is the first case revealed through hysteroscopy. CONCLUSION: In women with a history of intracavitary interventions such as D&C, omentum incarceration should be considered when hysteroscopy demonstrates a fat-like formation and yellow droplets released by pressing or mobilizing the formation. Surgeons should be cautious, never using electrosurgery on formations whose origin arouses suspicion.

[Ab] Abstract:BACKGROUND: Spinal cord infarction is an uncommon condition. Anterior cord syndrome present with paraparesis or quadriparesis with sparing of vibration and proprioceptive senses. The common causes of anterior cord syndrome are aortic dissection and aortic surgical interventions. Spontaneous unruptured nondissected aortic aneurysms with intramural thrombus can rarely cause anterior cord infarctions. CASE PRESENTATION: We report a case of anterior spinal cord syndrome due to aneurysm of the thoracic aorta with a mural thrombus. A 64year old male presented with sudden onset paraparesis with a sensory level at T1 with preserved sense of proprioception and vibration. The MRI panspine revealed increased T2 intensity in the anterior portion of the spinal cord from C5 to T10 level with characteristic 'owl eye' appearance on axial imaging. The CT aortogram detected aneurysmal dilatation of the ascending aortic, arch and descending thoracic aorta with significant intimal irregularities, calcified atherosclerotic plaques and a small mural thrombus. CONCLUSION: The possible mechanisms postulated are occlusion of ostia of radicular arteries by the atherosclerotic plaques and mural thrombus or thromboembolism to the anterior spinal artery. Nondissected atherosclerotic aortic aneurysms should be considered in patients presenting with spinal cord infarctions especially in the presence of vascular risk factors and smoking.

[Ab] Abstract:BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic Nissen and Toupet fundoplication (LF) are currently considered gold-standard surgical treatment for Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD). Magnetic Sphincter Augmentation (MSA) is an innovative surgical procedure that has been showed to be effective to control GERD symptoms and to reduce esophageal acid exposure. The aim of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to compare early outcomes of LF and MSA. MATERIALS AND METHODS: PubMed, MEDLINE, Embase, and Cochrane databases were consulted matching the terms "Gastroesophageal reflux or heartburn", "LINX or magnetic sphincter augmentation" and "fundoplication". Pooled effect measures were calculated using an inverse-variance weighted or Mantel-Haenszel in random effects meta-analysis. Heterogeneity was evaluated using I -index and Cochrane Q-test. Meta-regression was used to address the effect of potential confounders. RESULTS: Seven observational cohort studies, published between 2014 and 2017, matched the inclusion criteria. Overall, 1211 patients, 686 MSA and 525 LF, were included. Postoperative morbidity ranged from 0 to 3% in the MSA group and from 0 to 7% in the LF group, and there was no mortality. Dysphagia requiring endoscopic dilatation occurred in 9.3% and 6.6% of patients respectively (OR = 1.56, 95% CI = 0.61-3.95, p = 0.119). The pooled OR of gas/bloat symptoms, ability to vomit, and ability to belch were 0.39 (95% CI 0.25-0.61; p < 0.001), 10.10 (95% CI 5.33-19.15; p < 0.001), and 5.53 (95% CI 3.73-8.19; p < 0.001), respectively. The postoperative GERD-HRQL was similar (p = 0.101). The pooled OR of PPI suspension, endoscopic dilation, and reoperation were similar in the two patients groups (p = 0.548, p = 0.119, p = 0.183, respectively). CONCLUSION: Both anti-reflux procedures are safe and effective up to 1-year follow-up. PPI suspension rate, dysphagia requiring endoscopic dilatation, and disease-related quality of life are similar in the two patient groups. MSA is associated with less gas/bloat symptoms and increased ability to vomit and belch.

[Ab] Abstract:Opisthorchis viverrini is a group 1 carcinogen that causes cholangiocarcinoma (CCA). Although opisthorchiasis is known to be severely endemic to several areas along the Mekong River in Lao PDR, the CCA status of residents of this region is still under investigation. In this study, we analyzed the results of abdominal ultrasonography (US) performed on 6113 residents in 9 provinces (Vientiane Municipality, Savannakhet, Phongsaly, Khammouane, Saravane, Champasak, Vientiane, Xieng Khuouang, and Luang Prabang provinces) of Lao PDR from 2007 to 2011. Overall, 51 cases (0.83%) were detected with suspected CCA. The CCA rates in Vientiane Municipality and in Savannakhet and Khammouane provinces were 1.45%, 1.58%, and 1.09%, respectively. However, in the other 6 provinces, the rate of CCA averaged only 0.26%. In the 3 provinces with higher rates of CCA, bile duct dilatation (grade ≥ 2) was also significantly more prevalent (P < 0.0001). These results are concordant with previous reports showing a higher endemicity of opisthorchiasis in Vientiane Municipality and in Savannakhet and Khammouane provinces.

[Ab] Abstract:BACKGROUND: Pre-eclampsia (PE) is related to an impaired endothelial function. Endothelial dysfunction accounts for altered vascular reactivity, activation of the coagulation cascade and loss of vascular integrity. Impaired endothelial function originates from production of inflammatory and cytotoxic factors by the ischemic placenta and results in systemic oxidative stress (OS) and an altered bioavailability of nitric oxide (•NO). The free radical •NO, is an endogenous endothelium-derived relaxing factor influencing endothelial function. In placental circulation, endothelial release of •NO dilates the fetal placental vascular bed, ensuring feto-maternal exchange. The Endopreg study was designed to evaluate in vivo endothelial function and to quantify in vitro OS in normal and pre-eclamptic pregnancies. METHODS/DESIGN: The study is divided into two arms, a prospective longitudinal study and a matched case control study. In the longitudinal study, pregnant patients ≥18years old with a singleton pregnancy will be followed throughout pregnancy and until 6months post-partum. In the case control study, cases with PE will be compared to matched normotensive pregnant women. Maternal blood concentration of superoxide (O •) and placental concentration of •NO will be determined using EPR (electron paramagnetic resonance). Endothelial function and arterial stiffness will be evaluated using respectively Peripheral Arterial Tonometry (PAT), Flow-Mediated Dilatation (FMD) and applanation tonometry. Placental expression of eNOS (endothelial NOS) will be determined using immune-histochemical staining. Target recruitment will be 110 patients for the longitudinal study and 90 patients in the case-control study. DISCUSSION: The results of Endopreg will provide longitudinal information on in vivo endothelial function and in vitro OS during normal pregnancy and PE. Adoption of these vascular tests in clinical practice potentially predicts patients at risk to develop cardiovascular events later in life after PE pregnancies. •NO, O • and eNOS measurements provide further inside in the pathophysiology of PE. TRIAL REGISTRATION: This trial has been registered on clinicaltrials.gov. ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT02603913 . Registered October 2015.

[Ab] Abstract:AIM: To evaluate the effectiveness of laparoscopic repair of primary strictures of ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) depending on baseline renal function of the ipsilateral kidney. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study analyzed results of 134 patients (78 women and 56 men, age from 18 to 56 years) who underwent various types of laparoscopic repair of the UPJ stricture from 2012 to 2015. Depending on the surgical technique all patients were divided into three groups: group 1 (n=34) underwent spiral flap technique by Culp and DeWeerd, group 2 (n=59) - Anderson-Hynes pyeloplasty and group 3 (n=41) had antevasal dismembered pyeloplasty. All interventions ended with internal ureteral stenting for up to 6-8 weeks. Also, all patients were divided into three subgroups, depending on the degree of renal function deficiency - less than 25%, 25-50%, and 51-75%. Treatment effectiveness criteria included the following parameters: complete relief of the pain syndrome, a decrease in the degree of pyeloectasia, stabilization or improvement of the functional state of the renal parenchyma (according to radioisotope renography), and the absence of recurrence of the UPJ stricture. RESULTS: The overall effectiveness of UPJ laparoscopic reconstruction was 94.7% (127 of 134). The effectiveness of the treatment was independent of the surgical technique, the initial thickness of the renal parenchyma and the degree of PCS dilatation. There was an inverse correlation between the treatment effectiveness the degree of kidney function deficiency. CONCLUSION: In patients with hydronephrosis secondary to UPJ stricture, the effectiveness of surgical treatment is mainly determined by its timeliness. The best treatment results were observed in patients with better renal function. The degree of renal function deficiency should be considered the main prognostic factor for the effectiveness of the forthcoming operation.

[Ab] Abstract:BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIM: Removal of large common bile duct (CBD) stones is one of the challenges faced during endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, and it seems more difficult in cirrhotic patients because of suspected higher rates of adverse events, especially bleeding diathesis. This study aimed at comparing the success rate and complications between mechanical lithotripsy (ML) and large balloon dilation (LBD) after endoscopic sphincterotomy in patients with liver cirrhosis. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Ninety-eight cirrhotic patients with calcular obstructive jaundice were included and randomly divided into 2 groups: group A comprising 49 patients treated by LBD and group B comprising 49 patients treated by ML. All patients underwent sphincterotomy initially. All patients were subjected to thorough history taking and complete clinical examination. Pancreatic enzyme concentrations were measured 4 hours before and 24 hours after the procedure, and complete blood cell count and liver function tests were performed before and the morning after the procedure. Before and during endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, stone size and number were verified. RESULTS: The success rate for CBD clearance was 98% and 93.8% for LBD and ML, respectively. The rate of adverse events in this study was 10.2% (10/98), and bleeding was the commonest reported complication (5/10). Group B developed more (16.3%) adverse events than group A (4.1%), and the difference was statistically significant (P=0.04). CONCLUSION: Endoscopic sphincterotomy followed by LBD is a safe and effective treatment for large CBD stones in cirrhotic patients in comparison with sphincterotomy followed by ML.

[Ab] Abstract:BACKGROUND: Intermittent claudication is pain in the legs due to muscle ischaemia associated with arterial stenosis or occlusion. Angioplasty is a technique that involves dilatation and recanalisation of a stenosed or occluded artery. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this review was to determine the effects of angioplasty of arteries in the leg when compared with non surgical therapy, or no therapy, for people with mild to moderate intermittent claudication. SEARCH METHODS: Sources searched include the Cochrane Peripheral Vascular Diseases Group's Specialized Trials Register (August 2006), the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL, Issue 3, 2006) and reference lists of relevant articles. The review authors also contacted investigators in the field and handsearched relevant conference proceedings (August 2006). SELECTION CRITERIA: Randomised trials of angioplasty for mild or moderate intermittent claudication. DATA COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS: The contact author selected suitable trials and this was checked by the other review author. Both review authors assessed trial quality independently. The contact author extracted data and this was cross checked by the other review author. MAIN RESULTS: Two trials with a total of 98 participants were included. The average age was 62 years old with 20 women and 78 men. Participants were followed for two years in one trial and six years in the other.At six months follow up, mean ankle brachial pressure indices were higher in the angioplasty groups than control groups (mean difference 0.17; 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.11 to 0.24). In one trial, walking distances were greater in the angioplasty group, but in the other trial, in which controls underwent an exercise programme, walking distances did not show a greater improvement in the angioplasty group. At two years follow up in one trial, the angioplasty group were more likely to have a patent artery (odds ratio 5.5; 95% CI 1.8 to 17.0) but not a significantly better walking distance or quality of life. In the other trial, long term follow up at six years demonstrated no significant differences in outcome between the angioplasty and control groups. AUTHORS' CONCLUSIONS: These limited results suggest that angioplasty may have had a short term benefit, but this may not have been sustained.

[Ab] Abstract:OBJECTIVE: Previous studies have demonstrated the importance of intensive optimal medical therapy (OMT) in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). To investigate our hypothesis that patients with and without OMT achievement differed with respect to the risk of future cardiac events, we investigated the endothelial function in patients with CAD who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and contemporary medical therapy. METHODS: We conducted a prospective longitudinal cohort study to evaluate the endothelial function in 96 consecutive patients at 12 h after admission and 3 months at <12 h after admission and at 3 months after discharge by measuring the brachial artery dilatation after 5 min of forearm ischemia flow-mediated dilation (FMD). OMT achievement was defined as systolic blood pressure of ≤130 mm Hg, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol of ≤100 mg/dl, and hemoglobin A1c level of ≤7.0%. The primary endpoint was the incidence of composite major adverse cardiac or cerebrovascular events (MACCE) at 36 months. RESULTS: Forty-nine (51%) patients achieved all three risk factor targets at 3 months. Although baseline FMD values did not differ between the OMT achievement and non-achievement groups, the 3-month FMD significantly improved in the OMT achievement group (6.63.5 vs. 5.22.9, p=0.03). Patients with improved FMD at 3 months had a lower rate of 36-month MACCE than those with persistently impaired FMD. A multiple Cox hazards analysis showed that OMT was a protective predictor of MACCE (hazard ratio, 0.19; 95% confidence interval, 0.04-0.88, p=0.03). CONCLUSION: This study demonstrated a significant association between the serial measurement of endothelial function with OMT and the clinical outcome in patients after PCI.
