  • Therapeutic strategies for perforated jejunal diverticulitis. A case report. [Journal Article]
  • AIAnn Ital Chir 2019 May 07; 8
  • Viscosi F, Pintabona G, … Mazzeo C
  • CONCLUSIONS: Jejunal diverticulosis often presents with non-specific symptoms like intermittent abdominal pain, dyspepsia, bloating or abdominal fullness and constipation. When, instead, it incurs a complication, it presents with an acute abdominal pain. The most frequent complication of jejunal diverticulitis is the perforation, followed by acute intestinal obstruction and diverticular bleeding. The diverticular perforation is associated with a high mortality, especially among elderly patients. Nowadays the mortality is reduced because of the improvement of the diagnostic, pharmaceutical and surgical protocols.With this report we want to discuss about different therapeutic approaches for perforated jejuno-ileal diverticula, which depends on the severity of the disease and the general clinical condition of the patient.

  • CONCLUSIONS: Gastrointestinal comorbidity is very common in patients over 60 years-old with depression. Three-quarters of the patients have chronic gastrointestinal diseases or symptoms. The conditions with strongest associations are irritable bowel syndrome, congenital anomalies, other peptic ulcers, and diverticular disease. The symptoms with strongest associations are anorexia, nausea/vomiting, constipation, flatulence, dysphagia, abdominal pain, dyspepsia, and heartburn.

  • Surgeon, Hospital, and Geographic Variation in Minimally Invasive Colectomy. [Journal Article]
  • AnnSAnn Surg 2019; 269(6):1109-1116
  • Aquina CT, Becerra AZ, … Fleming FJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: Wide surgeon variation exists regarding an MIS approach for colectomy, and most of the total variation is attributable to individual surgeon practices-much of which is related to year of graduation. As increasing surgeon age is inversely proportional to the rate of MIS, patient referral and/or providing tailored training to older surgeons may be constructive targets in increasing the use of MIS and reducing healthcare utilization.
