Stone Ileus: An Unusual Presentation of Crohn's Disease

Charles Ma, H Tracy Davido

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: September 30, 2016

Stone ileus, also known as enterolith ileus enterolithiaisis, is a rare complication of cholelithiasis and an even rarer symptom of Crohn's disease. Gallstone ileus is secondary to fistula formation between the gallbladder and the gastrointestinal (GI) system. Enterolithiasis of Crohn's disease is thought to arise from the stasis of succus within the small bowel eventually leading to stone formation and growth. Both gallstone ileus and enterolithiasis of Crohn's disease can result in subsequent ...

Anonymous Altruistic Living Kidney Donation in the US: Reality and Practice

Abby S Kazley, Raj Amarnath, Arun Palanisamy, David Taber, Kenneth Chavin, Prabhakar Baliga and Wendy Balliet

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 21, 2016

Living kidney donors have emerged as the best option to overcome the severe shortage of transplantable kidneys. A growing number of these living donor kidneys come from anonymous altruistic donors who are not related to the recipients according to UNOS data. This study examines the process of anonymous altruistic kidney donation and identifies barriers and variance in transplant center practices. Using a mock patient caller, 73 transplant centers were contacted and asked about the process of alt...

Esophago-Pulmonary Fistula Caused by Lung Cancer Treated with a Covered Self-Expandable Metallic Stent

Takashi Abe, Takayuki Nagai and Kazunari Murakami

Article Type: Clinical Image | First Published: December 01, 2016

A 71-year-old man was diagnosed with squamous cell lung cancer in the right lower lobe. He was treated with chemotherapy (first line: TS-1/CDDP; second line: carboplatin/nab-paclitaxel) and radiation therapy (41.4 Gy), but his disease continued to progress. The patient complained of relatively sudden-onset chest pain and high-grade fever. Computed tomography (CT) showed a small volume of air in the lung cancer of the right lower lobe, so the patient was suspected of fistula between the esophagus...

Susannah Orzell, Todd Falcone and Gregory Grillone

Article Type: Clinical Study | First Published: October 05, 2016

Killian-Jamieson Diverticulum (KJD) is a rare type of cervical esophageal diverticulum. It originates inferior to the cricopharyngeal muscle and lateral to the longitudinal muscle of the esophagus, and is closely associated with the recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN). We report a case of KJD in a 78-year-old man treated with an open diverticulectomy with a nerve integrity monitor (NIM), and present a comprehensive literature review....

The MOC Train is off Course

Scott L Lee

Article Type: Perspective | First Published: September 01, 2016

Leaders often use the proverbial departed train to get people on board with unpopular changes, especially ones with little supporting evidence. Most hop on so as to not get left behind, but is the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) train heading in the right direction? In 2000, the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) mandated all specialty affiliates to limit board certification (BC) to 10 years, rather than continue the lifetime certificate....
