    Morbid obesity is associated with liver pathology, most commonly non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) leading to cirrhosis. However, the morbid obesity impedes qualification for organ transplantation. We present a case report of a 56-year-old woman who underwent bariatric procedure followed by liver transplantation[…][]

  • Diaphragmatic Hernia

    In our case, the stomach alone was involved; hence, the symptoms were suggestive of vague postprandial epigastric distress [11] .[] The main life-threatening complications are acute dyspnea caused by compression atelectasis, mediastinal shift, and strangulation and gangrene of the herniated viscera [6][]

  • Delayed Gastric Emptying

    Intrinsic inhibitory enteric neurons are considered to play an important role in the regulation of antropyloroduodenum coordination for gastric emptying. This study is designed to investigate the change of enteric neurons in the pylorus and antrum muscle in PPPD patients who have delayed gastric emptying. Muscle[…][]

  • Tracheoesophageal Fistula

    We report a case of the repair of an acquired benign tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) after prolonged mechanical invasive ventilation. Patient had an unknown double incomplete aortic arch determining a vascular ring above trachea and esophagus. External tracheobronchial compression, caused by the vascular ring,[…][]

  • Esophageal Achalasia

    Background: Peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) was developed by our group to provide a less invasive permanent treatment for esophageal achalasia. Patients and methods: POEM was performed in 17 consecutive patients with achalasia (10 men, 7 women; mean age 41.4 years). A long submucosal tunnel was created (mean[…][]
