Enterocutaneous fistula is not an uncommon complication among patients who have undergone abdominal surgery. Small bowel enterocutaneous fistulas, age above 45 years, and anemia with a hemoglobin level below 11 g/dl are significant factors associated with unfavorable outcomes among patients with ECF. These findings emphasize the complex nature of managing ECF and the crucial role of addressing both the primary condition and its associated complications to enhance patient outcomes....

Most patients experience symptoms in lesions > 2 cm in diameter. These lesions can present with GI haemorrhage, bowel obstruction and abdominal pain or discomfort. Symptomatic duodenal lipoma requires excision. ...

Clinical Expressions of Herniosis: Report of a Case

Jesús Andrés Montero-Puga, Guillermo Padrón-Arredondo and Adriana Tereza Cruz-Méndez

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: 2023/11/25

The etiology of hernias involves changes in the expression of different components of the extracellular matrix, which especially affect the fascia transversalis (FT), such as collagen, the elastic component and metalloproteinases (MMP). On the other hand, there is an overexpression of MMP-2 in the FT of young patients with direct inguinal hernia, correlated with an increase in TGF-beta1 that shows an attempt to counteract an increased process of degradation of the extracellular matrix in these p...
