Acute colonic obstruction due to malignancies is an emergency that requires surgical treatment. Elderly patients or inoperable tumors require intestinal decompression that is a simple colostomy in almost all cases. This "manoeuvre" leads the patient to a percentage of mortality/morbidity and to a bad quality of life due to acceptance ...

The use of self-expanding metallic stents (SEMS) as esophageal endoprosthesis represents an advancement in the palliation of dysphagia from unresectable esophageal carcinoma. However, the problem of stent migration persists. Although most migrated stents have a benign outcome, complications do occur. Rare reports of intestinal obstruction have been confined to the ...

Adenomyomas are hamartomas of the alimentary tract with exceptionally rare localization at the ileum. The case presented here concerns an infant aged 18 months suffering from adenomyoma of the ileum, which was responsible for the development of ileoileac intussusception. Our paper aims at underlining the particularities of this extremely rare ...
