Goblet Cell Carcinoid Tumors of the Appendix: A Report of Two Cases, Review of a Rare Clinical Entity, and Guidelines for Treatment

Carlos Alvarez-Laso, Enedina Azcano, Juan F. Carrion, Diana Rodríguez, José R. Riera
Goblet cell carcinoid tumor is a rare clinical entity which is usually diagnosed either as acute appendicitis or advanced cancer. Its main characteristic is that the histological findings are between those of adenocarcinoma and typical carcinoid tumor of the appendix. Goblet cell carcinoid tumors appear almost exclusively in the appendix, and prognosis depends mainly on the stage and the subtype of the histological classification.

Experimental Model with Choledochojejunostomy in Rats—Technique and Significance

Naoki Hashimoto, Shigeaki Yamanaka, Haruhiko Imamoto
A simple technique of choledochojejunostomy in rats is introduced in this paper and its suitability for use is as an experimental model. The healing characteristics of sutureless choledochojejunostomy rat (C-J rat) were investigated in a rat experimental model. The common bile duct of 10 conditioned Wistar rats was exposed, divided transversely and a choledochojejunostomy constructed with only a vinyl chloride tube positioned betw

Pattern of Upper Gastrointestinal Malignancies as Seen at Endoscopy in Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital, Ado-Ekiti, Nigeria

Akande Oladimeji Ajayi, Ebenezer Adekunle Ajayi, Olusoji Abidemi Solomon, Emmanuel Abidemi Omonisi, Samuel Ayokunle Dada
Aims and Objective: Gastrointestinal malignancies are among the most lethal of all malignancies and are equally notorious for rapidly progressing to advanced stages even in the absence of serious symptoms, thus leading to delayed diagnoses and dismal prognoses. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence, type, pattern and the histologic characteristics of upper gastrointestinal tumors seen in patients who underwent uppe

Top-Down Research, Generalists, and Google Scholar: Does Google Scholar Facilitate Breakthrough Research?

Yellowlees Douglas
Researchers long ago demonstrated that top-down, inference-based approaches to research have comfortably co-existed with more traditional bottom-up, hypotheses-driven research. Yet most faculty omit any mention of top-down approaches in direct instruction or training of students, despite these approaches being both relatively common, occasionally necessary, and considerably more efficient than traditional bottom-up research. The g

Prevention and Management of Periampullary Tumors in Familial Adenomatous Polyposis

Naoki Hashimoto
Familial adenomatosis polyposis (FAP) is one of two well described forms of hereditary colorectal cancer. The primary cause of death from this symdrome is colorectal caner which develops usually by the fifth decade of life. The overall survival of FAP was significantly improved by screening by genetic testing and endoscopy with prophylactic surgery. Almost all patients with FAP develop duodenal polyposis most of which occurs in periampullary. The second leading cause of death in FAP is duodenal ...

Maen M. Masadeh, Ali Zaied, Feroze Hussain, Heidi Spratt, Roger Soloway
Introduction: Liver cirrhosis (LC) is a major cause of mortality and morbidity in the United States. American Association for the Study of Liver Disease (AASLD) has developed guidelines for the management of patients with LC. Methods: We conducted a one-year retrospective chart review study of patients admitted with LC related complication. Our primary outcome was adherence to AASLD guidelines for the management of variceal bleeding (VB), fluid overload and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) screeni...

Protective Effect of Ischemic Preconditioning on Hepatic Ischemia-Reperfusion Injury in Rats

Naoki Hashimoto
Aim: Ischemic preconditioning (IPC) protects tissue against ischemia and reperfusion (I/R) injury. The aim of this study was to examine the impact of IPC on protection of hepatocytes after prolonged I/R injury. Methods: Twenty-four Wistar rats were randomly divided into ischemic preconditioning group (IP), ischemia/reperfusion group (IR) and sham operation group (SO). A model of partial liver ischemia/reperfusion was used, in which rats were subjected to liver ischemia for 90 min prior to reperf...
