The main indications for intraoperative consultation of gastrointestinal tract, liver, and pancreatobiliary system are to evaluate the resection margin and to make a tissue diagnosis of lesions for which preoperative histology is not aviable for various reasons. Special situations include the evaluation of liver donor biopsies for the presence of steatosis and inflamation, or determination that ganglion cells are present in the bowel wall at the level where the anastomosis will be placed in case of Hirschprung's disease...

PURPOSE: Morphometric analyses have shown that trunk muscle mass and density are associated with mortality in cancer patients. Because of the low incidence of spinal metastasis from gastrointestinal cancer and the limited life expectancy of these patients, few studies have been reported in this population. We evaluated the prognostic value of trunk muscle area and density in predicting overall survival. METHODS: The data from 78 patients with spinal metastases from gastrointestinal cancer, collected from February 2009 to July 2016, were evaluated...

Takeda-G-protein-receptor-5 (TGR5) is a receptor for bile acids and its expression has been described in a variety of tissues and species. Characterization of TGR5 distribution and function has been investigated in drug discovery for the treatment of metabolic diseases in humans. Because dogs are one of the species used in biomedical research and share some similarities with human gastrointestinal diseases, the objective of this study was to characterize the distribution of TGR5 receptor in the canine species...

Automatic segmentation of abdominal anatomy on computed tomography (CT) images can support diagnosis, treatment planning, and treatment delivery workflows. Segmentation methods using statistical models and multi-atlas label fusion (MALF) require inter-subject image registrations, which are challenging for abdominal images, but alternative methods without registration have not yet achieved higher accuracy for most abdominal organs. We present a registration-free deep-learning-based segmentation algorithm for eight organs that are relevant for navigation in endoscopic pancreatic and biliary procedures, including the pancreas, the gastrointestinal tract (esophagus, stomach, and duodenum) and surrounding organs (liver, spleen, left kidney, and gallbladder)...

Background: The mortality rates for different cancers are no longer an efficient tool for making national policy. The purpose of this study were to quantify the lifetime risks, life expectancies (LEs) after diagnosis, expected years of life lost (EYLL), and lifetime health care expenditures for 19 major cancers in Taiwan. Methods: A total of 831,314 patients with 19 pathologically proven cancers were abstracted from the Taiwan Cancer Registry from 1998 to 2012. They were linked to the National Mortality Registry (1998-2014) and National Health Insurance reimbursement database (1998-2013) for survival and health care costs...

Bile acids (BAs) regulate the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, cholesterol and lipids but have also a key role as singalling molecules and in the modulation of epithelial cell proliferation, gene expression and metabolism. These homeostatic pathways, when disrupted, are able to promote local inflammation, systemic metabolic disorders and, ultimately, cancer. The effect of hydrophobic BAs, in particular, can be linked with cancer in several digestive (mainly oesophagus, stomach, liver, pancreas, biliary tract, colon) and extra-digestive organs (i...

Heterotopic or ectopic tissue is a congenital anomaly defined as the presence of the tissue outside its normal location. This tissue is usually discovered incidentally and may be asymptomatic or may present with non-specific gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms. Two types of heterotopic tissues, pancreatic and gastric, predominantly occur in the GI tract. The frequency of ectopic pancreas found in autopsy studies is approximately 0.5%-13.7%. Heterotopic pancreatic tissue can be located anywhere along the GI tract; the most common sites are the stomach (27...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: The relationship between pyogenic liver abscess (PLA) and gastrointestinal (GI) cancer was first reported more than 20 years ago, yet little is known about this connection. We evaluated this association in a population-based, retrospective, cohort study. METHODS: Using Taiwan National Health Insurance claims data, we collected data on a cohort of 14,690 patients with PLA diagnosed from 2000 to 2007. A reference cohort of 58,760 persons without PLA (controls) was selected from the same database, frequency matched by age, sex, and index year...

AIMS: Annexin A10 (ANXA10) is a calcium- and phospholipid-binding protein expressed normally in the gastric mucosa. In this study, we evaluated the potential use of ANXA10 as a diagnostic marker. METHODS AND RESULTS: We observed ANXA10 expression in the gastric mucosa, the Brunner gland of the duodenum and the urothelium, but absence of expression in other normal organs. Following the screening of 1327 primary carcinomas of major organs, we identified ANXA10 expression in 46% of gastric, 72% of ampullary, 78% of pancreatic and 33% of biliary adenocarcinomas...
