Background & Aims: Haemorrhoidal disease is the most common anorectal pathology affecting 50% Irish and 36.4% UK population at some stage in their life. After conservative management with dietary modification and office procedures like rubber band ligation has failed formal haemorrhoidectomy needs to be done. Conventional haemorrhoidectomy has been replaced by new techniques like stapled haemorrhoidectomy (SH) and transanal haemorrhoidal dearterialization (THD) due to its serious complications. We performed this systematic review and meta-....[more]

Article DOI: 10.21614/sgo-307
Read article ABSTRACT

Background: The small intestine is not fixed to the retroperitoneum, and lesions in the smallintestine can be resected through a very small skin incision, similar to laparoscopic surgery,if it is placed accurately. In 2010, we reported on small incisional surgery (SIS) for smallintestinal diseases, in which the skin incision was placed at the umbilicus based on anthropometricanalysis. However, the feasibility and usefulness of SIS for resection of smallintestinal lesions have not been elucidated.
Methods: From January 2015 to December 20....[more]

Article DOI: 10.21614/sgo-426
Read article ABSTRACT

Extramammary Paget’s Disease is a rare cutaneous malignancy with only a few hundred cases described in the literature. Due to its rarity, diagnosis is often difficult. Here, we present a case of an 88-year-old man with a perianal lesion that persisted for two years despite treatment with multiple topical agents. A skin biopsy established the diagnosis of Perianal Extramammary Paget’s Disease. After excluding an underlying adenocarcinoma, surgical treatment was proposed to the patient. Wide local excision of the lesion was performed, and a loop ileo....[more]

Intestinal angiodysplasia is a common cause for gastrointestinal bleeding. Often, the diagnosis and management of these patients can be challenging. We aim to describe the clinical aspect, imagistic diagnosis and therapeutic options of angiodysplasia. We report the case of a 56 years old woman with multiple severe comorbidities diagnosed with angiodysplasia in an acute setting. The main clinical manifestation was massive gastrointestinal hemorrhage, in the context of disseminated intravascular coagulation. Despite the embolization of the first jejunal ....[more]
