Technical Modification of the Georgeson Procedure for Hirschsprung’s Disease: a 12 Years Experience with the Laparoscopic-Assisted Mesocolon Dissection

  ABSTRACT Introduction: Actually the primary laparoscopic endorectal colon pull-through, reported by Georgeson, is the gold standard in the treatment of Hirschsprung’s disease. In this procedure the dissection of the aganglionic colon is performed laparoscopically. We describe a technical modification of the Georgeson procedure: the laparoscopic-assisted mesocolon dissection. Methods: A retrospective analysis was performed on […]

Video-Assisted Colorraphy of Iatrogenic Colonic Perforation: a Case Report

ABSTRACT: Iatrogenic colonic perforation is the most severe complication of lower gastrointestinal endoscopy. A prompt diagnosis is necessary in order to identify the site of perforation and to reduce peritonitis due to bacterial seeding. We reported our experience with a 10-month old baby admitted for descending colonic perforation during an endoscopic procedure, in whom an […]

Endoscopic Airway Evaluation in Congenital Tracheoesophageal Fistula. Pediatric airway endoscopy

Abstract: Introduction. The communication between the trachea and esophagus is called tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF). It can occurs as a congenital  malformation (0.025-0.05%) (in particular related to the esophageal atresia) or can occurs as an acquired pathology. Endoscopic evaluation is the gold standard for the diagnosis of TEF and must be performed, in presence of symptoms […]

Heteropic gastric pancreas associated with type II esophageal atresia and presenting with acute gastrointestinal bleeding

Abstract Heterotopic pancreas is defined as pancreatic tissue found outside its normal localization without vascular or anatomic communication with the pancreatic gland. It is usually diagnosed incidentally, but it may also be responsible for acute clinical pictures.  We discuss an interesting case of ectopic pancreas associated with type II esophageal atresia and presenting with gastrointestinal […]
