The esophagogram revealed severe esophagus dilatation and the classic “bird-beak” termination. A Heller myotomy plus fundoplication and endoscopic balloon dilatation were conducted four months previously. Nevertheless, the symptoms persisted and the last high-resolution manometry study still showed achalasia type II. The patient underwent a pe...

Portal vein thrombosis (PVT) is a rare condition in the general population that develops serious complications if left untreated for long time. We present a case of a 29-year-old woman who developed PVT due to protein S deficiency versus neonatal funiculitis. Over time, the patient developed upper gastrointestinal bleeding due to esophageal varices and hypersplenism with splenic sequestration that caused minor bleeding episodes. Laparoscopic splenectomy and proximal splenorenal shunt with distal...

Congenital cytomegalovirus infection is a cause of neonatal infection that can be asymptomatic; however, its complications are possible in some organs such as the nervous system and the liver. We report a case of a 2-month-old female infant with cytomegalovirus hepatitis characterized by abdominal distention, cholestasis, irritability, and poor breastfeeding. In the tests, liver involvement, periventricular microcalcifications, and sensorineural hearing loss were found. The diagnosis was determi...
The management of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is mainly medical, however, more than 70% of patients with Crohn's disease (CD) and 25% with ulcerative colitis (UC) will require surgery during their lifetime.

MATERIALS AND METHODS Observational, descriptive, retrospective study from January 2011 to December 2019 in the Gastroenterology Service of the Guillermo Almenara Irigoyen National H...
OBJECTIVES The scarce existing literature suggests having a lower rate of anastomotic leakage and less late stricture formation after stapled esophagogastric anastomosis compared to the manual anastomosis technique. The aim of the present study is to compare the surgical outcomes of termino-lateral manual cervical anastomosis versus mechanical anastomosis by later lateral stapling, after transhiatal esophagectomy for cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective review of patients undergoing tra...
