Stomach Cancer
Etiology Helicobacter pylori infection is the cause of most stomach cancer. Autoimmune atrophic gastritis and various genetic factors: Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors are also risk factors. Dietary factors are not proven causes. Gastric polyps can be precursors of cancer. Inflammatory polyps may develop in patients taking NSAIDs, and fundic foveolar polyps are common among patients taking proton pump inhibitors. Adenomatous polyps, particularly multiple ones, although rare, are the most likely to develop cancer. Cancer is particularly likely if an adenomatous polyp is 2 cm in diameter or has a villous histology. Because malignant transformation cannot be detected by inspection, all polyps seen at endoscopy should be removed. The incidence of stomach cancer is generally decreased in patients with duodenal ulcer. Pathophysiology Gastric adenocarcinomas can be classified by gross appearance: Protruding: The tumor is polypoid or fungating. Penetrating: The tumor is ulcerated. Superficial spreading: The tumor spreads along the mucosa or infiltrates superficially within the wall of the stomach. Linitis plastica: The tumor infiltrates the stomach wall with an associated fibrous reaction that causes a rigid leather bottle stomach. Miscellaneous: The tumor shows characteristics of 2 of the other types; this classification is the largest. Prognosis is better with protruding tumors than with spreading tumors because protruding tumors become symptomatic earlier.

Stomach Cancer Simplified
http://www.laendo.net/ Stomach cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death worldwide. Although the incidence of stomach cancer has declined dramatically in the United States and Western Europe in the last 60 years, the disease remains a serious problem in much of the rest of the world, where it's a leading cause of cancer death. This global variation is almost certainly linked to two factors that play a major role in the development of stomach cancer — infection with Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) bacteria and diet, especially the type of diet that's high in salted, smoked and pickled foods common in areas that lack refrigeration as a means of preserving food. Stomach cancer is more readily treated when caught early. Unfortunately, by the time stomach cancer causes symptoms, it's often at an advanced stage and may have spread beyond the stomach. Yet there is encouraging news. You can reduce your risk of stomach cancer by making a few changes in your lifestyle.
Stomach Cancer
Take note of the signs and symptoms Stomach cancer also known as gastric cancer is the second most common cause of cancer- related death in the world killing around 800,000 people each year.It is the only fourth most commonly diagnosed cancer and around one million people are diagnosed each year.The incidence of stomach cancer varies hugely geographically with a much bigger prevalence among men than women.

Ulcerated Stomach Cancer
Stomach cancers tend to develop slowly over many years. Before a true cancer develops, pre-cancerous changes often occur in the lining of the stomach. These early changes rarely cause symptoms and therefore often go undetected. If you (or a loved one) are worried about developing stomach cancer, have just been diagnosed, are going through treatment, or are trying to stay well after treatment, Gastric cancer is still the second most common cause of cancer-related death in the world, and it remains difficult to cure in Western countries, primarily because most patients present with advanced disease. Even patients who present in the most favorable condition and who undergo curative surgical resection often die of recurrent disease. Early disease has no associated symptoms; however, some patients with incidental complaints are diagnosed with early gastric cancer. Most symptoms of gastric cancer reflect advanced disease. Patients may complain of indigestion, nausea or vomiting, dysphagia, postprandial fullness, loss of appetite, melena, hematemesis, and weight loss. Late complications include pathologic peritoneal and pleural effusions; obstruction of the gastric outlet, gastroesophageal junction, or small bowel; bleeding in the stomach from esophageal varices or at the anastomosis after surgery; intrahepatic jaundice caused by hepatomegaly; extrahepatic jaundice; and inanition resulting from starvation or cachexia of tumor origin. Causes Gastric cancer may often be multifactorial, involving both inherited predisposition and environmental factors. Environmental factors implicated in the development of gastric cancer include diet, Helicobacter pylori infection, previous gastric surgery, pernicious anemia, adenomatous polyps, chronic atrophic gastritis, and radiation exposure. Diet A diet rich in pickled vegetables, salted fish, salt, and smoked meats correlates with an increased incidence of gastric cancer. A diet that includes fruits and vegetables rich in vitamin C may have a protective effect. Smoking Smoking is associated with an increased incidence of stomach cancer in a dose-dependent manner, both for number of cigarettes and for duration of smoking. Smoking increases the risk of cardiac and noncardiac forms of stomach cancer.Cessation of smoking reduces the risk. A meta-analysis of 40 studies estimated that the risk was increased by approximately 1.5- to 1.6-fold and was higher in men. Helicobacter pylori infection Chronic bacterial infection with H pylori is the strongest risk factor for stomach cancer. H pylori may infect 50% of the world's population, but many fewer than 5% of infected individuals develop cancer. It may be that only a particular strain of H pylori is strongly associated with malignancy, H pylori infection is associated with chronic atrophic gastritis, and patients with a history of prolonged gastritis have a sixfold increased risk of developing gastric cancer. Interestingly, this association is particularly strong for tumors located in the antrum, body, and fundus of the stomach but does not seem to hold for tumors originating in the cardia. Previous gastric surgery Previous surgery is implicated as a risk factor. The rationale is that surgery alters the normal pH of the stomach, which may in turn lead to metaplastic and dysplastic changes in luminal cells. Retrospective studies demonstrate that a small percentage of patients who undergo gastric polyp removal have evidence of invasive carcinoma within the polyp. This discovery has led some researchers to conclude that polyps might represent premalignant conditions. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy has a diagnostic accuracy of 95%. This relatively safe and simple procedure provides a permanent color photographic record of the lesion. This procedure is also the primary method for obtaining a tissue diagnosis of suspected lesions. Biopsy of any ulcerated lesion should include at least 6 specimens taken from around the lesion because of variable malignant transformation. In selected cases, endoscopic ultrasound may be helpful in assessing depth of penetration of the tumor or involvement of adjacent structures. Chest radiograph is done to evaluate for metastatic lesions. CT scan or MRI of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis assess the local disease process as well as evaluate potential areas of spread (ie, enlarged lymph nodes, possible liver metastases). Endoscopic ultrasound allows for a more precise preoperative assessment of the tumor stage. Endoscopic sonography is becoming increasingly useful as a staging tool when the CT scan fails to find evidence of T3, T4, or metastatic disease. Institutions that favor neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy for patients with locally advanced disease rely on endoscopic ultrasound data to improve patient stratification.

Infiltranting Gastric Cancer
Endoscopy of Infiltranting Gastric Cancer Stomach cancer is often either asymptomatic (producing no noticeable symptoms) or it may cause only nonspecific symptoms (symptoms which are not specific to just stomach cancer, but also to other related or unrelated disorders) in its early stages. By the time symptoms occur, the cancer has often reached an advanced stage (see below) and may have also metastasized (spread to other, perhaps distant, parts of the body), which is one of the main reasons for its relatively poor prognosis. Stomach cancer can cause the following signs and symptoms: Most stomach cancer is caused by Helicobacter pylori infection. Dietary factors are not proven causes, but some foods, such as smoked foods, salted fish and meat, and pickled vegetables are associated with a higher risk. Nitrates and nitrites in cured meats can be converted by certain bacteria, including H. pylori, into compounds that have been found to cause stomach cancer in animals. On the other hand, the American Cancer Society recommends eating fresh fruits and vegetables that contain antioxidant vitamins, such as A and C, and says that they lower the risk of stomach cancer, and a Mediterranean diet is associated with lower rates of stomach cancer. Smoking increases the risk of developing gastric cancer significantly, from 40% increased risk for current smokers to 82% increase for heavy smokers. Gastric cancers due to smoking mostly occur in the upper part of the stomach near the esophagus Some studies show increased risk with alcohol consumption as well. Other factors associated with increased risk are autoimmune atrophic gastritis, intestinal metaplasia, and genetic factors. H. pylori is the main risk factor in 65--80% of gastric cancers, but in only 2% of such infections. The mechanism by which H. pylori induces stomach cancer potentially involves chronic inflammation, or the action of H. pylori virulence factors such as CagA. Approximately ten percent of cases show a genetic component. Some studies indicate that bracken consumption and spores are correlated with incidence of stomach cancer, though causality has yet to be established. Gastric cancer is the second most common cause of cancer-related death in the world, and it remains difficult to cure in Western countries, primarily because most patients present with advanced disease. In the United States, stomach malignancy is currently the 14th most common cancer. Stomach cancers are classified according to the type of tissue where they originate. The most common type of stomach cancer is adenocarcinoma, which starts in the glandular tissue of the stomach and accounts for 90% to 95% of all stomach cancers. Other forms of stomach cancer include lymphomas, which involve the lymphatic system and sarcomas, which involve the connective tissue (such as muscle, fat, or blood vessels). Worldwide, more than half a million deaths result from stomach cancer, which is much more common in Asia and Latin America than in the United States. Stomach cancer (also called gastric cancer) can develop in any part of the stomach. It begins in the inner lining and can spread throughout the stomach, penetrate the wall and progress to the adjacent lymph nodes. The cause is unknown but has been associated with dietary factors, Helicobacter pylori infection, smoking and alcohol consumption. Current research on the molecular genetics of stomach cancer points toward prevention and early detection of the disease. Stomach cancer is more common in Japan, the former Soviet Union, and parts of Central America and South America.
gastric cancer surgical treatment part 2 || stomach || git
gastric cancer surgical treatment part 2 || stomach || git Pancreatic cancer arises when cells in the pancreas, a glandular organ behind the stomach, begin to multiply out of control and form a mass. These cancerous cells have the ability to invade other parts of the body.[10] There are a number of types of pancreatic cancer.[6] The most common, pancreatic adenocarcinoma, accounts for about 85% of cases, and the term "pancreatic cancer" is sometimes used to refer only to that type.[6] These adenocarcinomas start within the part of the pancreas which makes digestive enzymes.[6] Several other types of cancer, which collectively represent the majority of the non-adenocarcinomas, can also arise from these cells.[6] One to two percent of cases of pancreatic cancer are neuroendocrine tumors, which arise from the hormone-producing cells of the pancreas.[6] These are generally less aggressive than pancreatic adenocarcinoma.[6] Signs and symptoms of the most common form of pancreatic cancer may include yellow skin, abdominal or back pain, unexplained weight loss, light-colored stools, dark urine and loss of appetite.[1] There are usually no symptoms in the disease's early stages, and symptoms that are specific enough to suggest pancreatic cancer typically do not develop until the disease has reached an advanced stage.[1][2] By the time of diagnosis, pancreatic cancer has often spread to other parts of the body.[6][11] Pancreatic cancer rarely occurs before the age of 40, and more than half of cases of pancreatic adenocarcinoma occur in those over 70.[2] Risk factors for pancreatic cancer include tobacco smoking, obesity, diabetes, and certain rare genetic conditions.[2] About 25% of cases are linked to smoking,[3] and 5–10% are linked to inherited genes.[2] Pancreatic cancer is usually diagnosed by a combination of medical imaging techniques such as ultrasound or computed tomography, blood tests, and examination of tissue samples (biopsy).[3][4] The disease is divided into stages, from early (stage I) to late (stage IV).[11] Screening the general population has not been found to be effective.[12] The risk of developing pancreatic cancer is lower among non-smokers, and people who maintain a healthy weight and limit their consumption of red or processed meat.[5] A smoker's chance of developing the disease decreases if they stop smoking, and almost returns to that of the rest of the population after 20 years.[6] Pancreatic cancer can be treated with surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, palliative care, or a combination of these.[1] Treatment options are partly based on the cancer stage.[1] Surgery is the only treatment that can cure pancreatic adenocarcinoma,[11] and may also be done to improve quality of life without the potential for cure.[1][11] Pain management and medications to improve digestion are sometimes needed.[11] Early palliative care is recommended even for those receiving treatment that aims for a cure.[13][14] In 2015, pancreatic cancers of all types resulted in 411,600 deaths globally.[9] Pancreatic cancer is the fifth most common cause of death from cancer in the United Kingdom,[15] and the fourth most common in the United States.[16][17] The disease occurs most often in the developed world, where about 70% of the new cases in 2012 originated.[6] Pancreatic adenocarcinoma typically has a very poor prognosis: after diagnosis, 25% of people survive one year and 5% live for five years.[6][7] For cancers diagnosed early, the five-year survival rate rises to about 20%.[18] Neuroendocrine cancers have better outcomes; at five years from diagnosis, 65% of those diagnosed are living, though survival varies considerably depending on the type of tumor. #Carcinoma_stomach_surgical_treatment #stomach #git

Advanced Treatments For Liver Cancer
Most liver cancer is secondary or metastatic, meaning it started somewhere else in the body. Primary liver cancer, which starts in the liver, accounts for about 2% of cancers in the U.S. Most people don't experience signs or symptoms in the early stages of primary liver cancer. “Although it’s vitally important and you can’t live without your liver, you can remove up to 80% of a normal liver safely with low mortality rates and the liver will actually grow back to normal size,” says Dr. Mark Bloomston, a surgical gastrointestinal oncologist on Lee Memorial Health System’s medical staff. Dr. Bloomston says this regenerative ability opens the opportunity for advanced treatment techniques: like newly developed staged procedures involving chemotherapy. “We can put radioactive beads into the liver, we can do procedures to trick the liver into thinking it already had surgery. So the good side will start to grow and advance,” says Dr. Bloomston. In the coming decades doctors hope the number of liver cancer cases in this country will drop. Hepatitis C is a driving force behind this disease which is also impacted by alcoholic cirrhosis and morbid obesity. These are lifestyle issues which can be addressed through awareness. Until then, advanced techniques offer the best chance for a cure. “And so patients commonly live for many years after liver surgery,” says Dr. Bloomston. In general, survival rates are higher for people who can have surgery to remove their cancer, regardless of the stage.

Endoscopy of Gastric Cancer of The Antrum
The geographic incidence of gastric cancer has changed dramatically over the last few decades. Prior to 1950, it was the most common cause of cancer death in men, and the third leading cause of cancer death in women in the U.S. Mortality from gastric cancer in the United States has declined, perhaps due to dietary changes. This cancer is twice as common in men than women, twice as common in blacks than whites, and more common with advancing age. Gastric cancer is also seen in higher rates in Latin America, Northern Europe and the Far East. It remains the second leading cause of cancer death worldwide. Gastric cancer peaks in the seventh decade of life. Often, a delay in diagnosis may account for the poor prognosis. Fortunately, dedicated research into its pathogenesis and identification of new risk factors, treatment, and advanced endoscopic techniques have led to earlier detection of gastric cancer. Recognition that Helicobacter pylori infection causes most gastric ulcers has revolutionized the approach to gastric cancer today. Gastric tumors include adenocarcinoma, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, and carcinoid tumors. Gastric cancer consists of two pathological variants, intestinal and diffuse. The intestinal-type is the end-result of an inflammatory process that progresses from chronic gastritis to atrophic gastritis and finally to intestinal metaplasia and dysplasia. This type is more common among elderly men, unlike the diffuse type, which is more prevalent among women and in individuals under the age of 50. The diffuse-type, characterized by the development of linitis plastica, is associated with an unfavorable prognosis because the diagnosis is often delayed until the disease is quite advanced. Gastric H. pylori infection is highly associated with this type as with the intestinal-type. Adenocarcinoma Adenocarcinomas arising from gastric epithelium are the most common malignancies of the stomach (90% of cases). Malignancies arising from connective tissue (sarcoma) and from lymphatics (lymphoma) are less common. Adenocarcinomas ( are most often found in the gastric cardia (31%), followed by the antrum (26%), and body of the stomach (14%). Adenocarcinomas are classified according to histology and location. Histologically, these malignancies may be divided into well-differentiated and poorly differentiated types, depending on the degree of gland formation and ability to secrete mucus. Most tumors are heterogeneous in histological appearance; therefore, classification is made by noting the predominant structures. Thus, well-differentiated tubular and poorly differentiated signet-ring cell carcinoma make up the majority of tumors. Less common types are mucinous, papillary and undifferentiated carcinoma.
Endoscopy of a Gastric Cancer
The prognosis for gastric cancer depends on its stage; so, detection in the early stage of disease is important, when complete and curative removal is possible. Accurate diagnosis can be facilitated by a sound understanding of the basic findings of white light endoscopy of early gastric cancer, and diagnosis can be refined further by the combined use of other imaging modalities such as image-enhanced endoscopy including chromoendoscopy and endoscopic ultrasonography. Minimally invasive endoscopic treatment has come to be the preferred therapeutic approach for early gastric cancer. In addition to conventional endoscopic mucosal resection, a new technique known as endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) has spread rapidly worldwide. Indeed, strategies for ESD have been established, devices developed, its indications expanded, and its safety and long-term results extensively reported. Some unique combination therapies involving endoscopy and surgical treatment have also been reported. It is anticipated that the number of patients undergoing endoscopic therapy will continue to increase, and the ongoing developments in endoscopic treatment are expected not only to improve gastric cancer prognosis but also to maintain good quality of life after treatment. Despite both the incidence and mortality rates of gastric cancer showing decreasing trends, gastric cancer remains one of the most common causes of death by cancer worldwide. There are significant regional differences in gastric cancer onset, with East Asian countries, including Japan and Korea, known to have a particularly high incidence rate compared to the Western countries. In Japan, following the introduction of a mass screening program that utilizes double-contrast barium radiography for early the detection of gastric cancer and alongside developments in endoscopic equipment and improved diagnostic capability, gastric cancer is now being detected more often in the asymptomatic stages.
Stanley Falkow (Stanford University) Part 2: Helicobacter pylori and Gastric Cancer
https://www.ibiology.org/microbiology/host-pathogen-interactions-human-disease/#part-2 Lecture Overview Ninety percent of the cells humans carry are microbes. Only a few of the bacteria we encounter are pathogenic and can cause disease. Pathogens possess the inherent ability to cross anatomic barriers or breach other host defenses that limit the microbes that make up our normal flora. A significant part of human evolution has gone into developing ways to thwart microbial intrusion. In turn, microbes have come up with clever ways to avoid and circumvent host defenses but human — microbe interactions is still a "Work in Progress." When we study pathogens we learn as much about ourselves as we do about them. Helicobacter pylori lives in the human stomach. It causes gastritis, ulcer disease and even gastric cancer. Some H. pylori can inject a protein, CagA, into gastric epithelial cells. CagA interacts with the tight junctions that bind cells together and with signaling molecules affecting motility and proliferation. CagA is associated with ulcer disease and cancer but we don't understand how it works to favor malignancy. Not long ago in history most humans carried H. pylori ; the incidence of carriage and gastric cancer is dropping but there is evidence that this microbe also had a protective effect on human health.

Endoscopy The Gastric Cancer Gran Concerto
This video shows a popurrí of multiple gastrointestinal endoscopies with gastric cancer Stomach cancer is more common in developing nations, while becoming less common in Western countries, including Australia. At present, stomach cancer is still the fourth most common cause of death from cancer. Slightly more men than women develop stomach cancer. It can occur in young adults, although most commonly it affects people in their late 60s to 70s. Stomach cancer is curable if detected early, but most people don't seek medical help until the disease is quite advanced, possibly because symptoms occur late and are often vague and non-specific. Types of stomach cancer There appear to be two main types of gastric (stomach) cancer. One type of gastric cancer is associated with infection by the Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) bacterium. The H. pylori germ commonly lives in the lining of the stomach in up to four out of 10 adults. It is now known to be responsible for most duodenal ulcers and over two-thirds of stomach ulcers. It also triggers symptoms like indigestion. H. pylori is always associated with superficial gastritis and, sometimes with chronic atrophic gastritis, which can lead to the development of stomach cancer. However, only a minority of people infected with this bacterium ever develop gastric cancer. Another type of gastric cancer is not associated with Helicobacter pylori. It is less common, but is becoming more so. The cause of this second type is unknown, although reflux -- acid regurgitation into the upper stomach and oesophagus (swallowing tube) -- and obesity are thought to be important risk factors. MALToma, which are tumours involving mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT), and gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GIST) are two other, more rare forms of stomach cancer. The progression of stomach cancer The lining of the stomach, called the epithelium, is layered with multiple folds. The epithelium is coated with mucus (gastric mucosa) secreted by special glands. Stomach cancer seems to progress through certain stages, including: Normal mucus lining Superficial gastritis (inflammation) Chronic atrophic gastritis Intestinal metaplasia (cell changes) Dysplasia and carcinoma (development of cancer cells). Helicobacter pylori Before the discovery of the Helicobacter pylori bacterium in 1983, peptic (stomach) ulcers were thought to be caused by diet and stress. The germs inhabit the stomach lining, and the chemicals they produce cause irritation and inflammation. The infection is more common among poor or institutionalised people. The mode of transmission is mostly unknown, but is thought to include sharing food or utensils, or coming in contact with infected vomit or faeces. The decline of H. pylori rates in the Western world may be related to clean water supplies and the use of antibiotics in childhood. Countries where water from wells is still used have very high H. pylori rates. Stomach ulcers aren't a risk factor It seems logical to assume that a person with stomach ulcers is susceptible to stomach cancer, since the H. pylori bacterium is obviously present. However, this isn't the case. It apparently depends on the reaction of the stomach to the infection. Research is ongoing, but current theories suggest that stomach ulcers are not a risk factor for stomach cancer. Dietary and workplace factors It is thought that dietary factors, in combination with H. pylori infection, make the development of stomach cancer more likely, for reasons unknown. High-salt diets seem to increase the risk, which may help to explain why the incidence of stomach cancer is declining at a slower rate in Japan (where salt consumption is high). Refrigeration eliminates the need to use salt as a preservative and this could be partly responsible for the declining stomach cancer rate in the West. Research suggests that eating fruits and vegetables decreases the risk, with vitamin C and carotenoids believed to be the key cancer-inhibiting ingredients. These dietary factors do not seem to be as important as H. pylori infection, however, in determining the risks of developing cancer. Workplace factors may also play a part; workers in the metal industry appear to be at higher risk. I

gastric cancer Medical treatment || stomach || git Stomach cancer, also known as gastric cancer, is a cancer which develops from the lining of the stomach.[10] Early symptoms may include heartburn, upper abdominal pain, nausea and loss of appetite.[1] Later signs and symptoms may include weight loss, yellowing of the skin and whites of the eyes, vomiting, difficulty swallowing and blood in the stool among others.[1] The cancer may spread from the stomach to other parts of the body, particularly the liver, lungs, bones, lining of the abdomen and lymph nodes.[11] The most common cause is infection by the bacterium Helicobacter pylori, which accounts for more than 60% of cases.[2][3][12] Certain types of H. pylori have greater risks than others.[2] Smoking, dietary factors such as pickled vegetables and obesity are other risk factors.[2][4] About 10% of cases run in families, and between 1% and 3% of cases are due to genetic syndromes inherited from a person's parents such as hereditary diffuse gastric cancer.[2] Most cases of stomach cancers are gastric carcinomas.[2] This type can be divided into a number of subtypes.[2] Lymphomas and mesenchymal tumors may also develop in the stomach.[2] Most of the time, stomach cancer develops in stages over years.[2] Diagnosis is usually by biopsy done during endoscopy.[1] This is followed by medical imaging to determine if the disease has spread to other parts of the body.[1] Japan and South Korea, two countries that have high rates of the disease, screen for stomach cancer.[2] A Mediterranean diet lowers the risk of cancer as does the stopping of smoking.[2][5] There is tentative evidence that treating H. pylori decreases the future risk.[2][5] If cancer is treated early, many cases can be cured.[2] Treatments may include some combination of surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy and targeted therapy.[1][13] If treated late, palliative care may be advised.[2] Outcomes are often poor with a less than 10% five-year survival rate globally.[6] This is largely because most people with the condition present with advanced disease.[6] In the United States, five-year survival is 28%,[7] while in South Korea it is over 65%, partly due to screening efforts.[2] Globally, stomach cancer is the fifth leading cause of cancer and the third leading cause of death from cancer, making up 7% of cases and 9% of deaths.[14] In 2012, it newly occurred in 950,000 people and caused 723,000 deaths.[14] Before the 1930s, in much of the world, including most Western developed countries, it was the most common cause of death from cancer.[15][16][17] Rates of death have been decreasing in many areas of the world since then.[2] This is believed to be due to the eating of less salted and pickled foods as a result of the development of refrigeration as a method of keeping food fresh.[18] Stomach cancer occurs most commonly in East Asia and Eastern Europe.[2] It occurs twice as often in males as in females. #carcinoma_stomach _Medical_treatment #stomach #git

Colon Cancer with Dr. Howard Schecter : MD-VOD
Visit http://empowerme.tv/md-vod/ for Full Episodes, Photos, and More! Not counting skin cancers, colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer found in men and women in this country. Thanks to colorectal cancer screening, polyps can be found earlier when it is easier to cure, and the death rate from this cancer has been going down for the past 15 years. Still, the risk of a man having colorectal cancer in his lifetime is about 1 in 19; for women it is about 1 in 20. As we do with every illness we'll help explain in simple terms what Colon cancer is, who is at risk and what the dangers are, and what are the symptoms. So join us as we simplify what you need to know about Colon cancer here on MD VOD, your health live and on demand. Colon and rectal cancers begin in the digestive system, or GI system, short for gastrointestinal system. This is where food is processed to create energy and rid the body of solid waste matter. In order to understand colorectal cancer, it helps to know something about the structure of the digestive system and how it works. After food is chewed and swallowed, it travels to the stomach. There it is partly broken down and sent to the small intestine. The word "small" refers to the width of the small intestine. In fact, the small intestine is the longest part of the digestive system — about 20 feet long. The small intestine also breaks down the food and absorbs most of the nutrients and then leads to the large intestine (also called the large bowel or colon), a muscular tube about five feet long. The colon absorbs water and nutrients from the food and also serves as a storage place for waste matter. The waste matter (stool) moves from the colon into the rectum, the last six inches of the digestive system. From there the waste passes out of the body through the opening called the anus. *****This video contains healthcare information only, not medical advice.***** Host, Dr. John Kennedy, MD, FACC is the Director of Preventive Cardiology and Wellness, Marina Del Rey Hospital, Marina Del Rey, California.

Endoscopy of Gastric Cancer.
An endoscopy of gastric cancer is observed A gastric carcinoma is a malignant tumour arising from the epithelium of the stomach. Adenocarcinoma accounts for 95% of gastric malignancies, the remaining 5% being composed of lymfomas. Although its frequency has decreased dramatically during the last few decades in the Western world, this cancer still contributes significantly to the overall mortality. The incidence of adenocarcinoma varies greatly depending on the geographical area. The annual incidence in Japan is estimated at 140 cases per 100,000 population per year, whereas in the Western world this incidence is estimated at 10 per 100,000 population. A higher incidence in males than females with a ratio of 1.5:2.5, in poor social groups and in people above 40 years of age is observed.

What You Can Do To Prevent Colon Cancer Naturally
According to the Colon Cancer Alliance and the American Cancer Society, colon cancer, also known as colorectal cancer, is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death in men and women combined in the US. Colon Cancer is considered a PREVENTABLE cancer. Why? Primarily because by changing our diet we can reduce risk dramatically.  Here are 7 proven steps you can take right now to promote a healthy anti-cancer intestinal environment and prevent colorectal cancer naturally: 1.Eat Less Red Meat.  Studies show that eating red meat “frequently” increases the incidence of colon cancer. Eating red meat daily, and especially more than one serving per day. Increased risk is associated with increased inflammation associated with chemicals released by digestion of red meat. These chemicals increase damage to and inhibit the repair of DNA in the cells lining your intestines. Damage to DNA is a primary cause of all cancers. 2.Eat a Rainbow of Plant Antioxidants.  The deep, bright colors of fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices contribute a wide variety of antioxidants to the diet. Examples of few antioxidants rich, deeply pigmented foods are: blueberries, cranberries, carrots, apricots, kale, broccoli, spinach, avocado, apples, red cabbage, turmeric, etc. Color signals the presence of antioxidant that turn on cancer suppressor genes and turn off cancer promoter genes. Studies show increased levels of inflammation and oxidative stress in the colon with diets lacking plant antioxidants. Increased inflammation and low antioxidant levels is an environment that promotes colon cancer. 3.Use Olive Oil in your cooking.  Olive-oil contains plant chemicals that have anti-cancer properties. Olive oil reduces bile acid and increases enzymes that regulate cell turn over in the lining of the intestines promoting healthy tissue. Antioxidant compounds (phenolics) present in olive-oil also exert a cancer protective antioxidant effect. 4.Include Omega 3 Oils.   A diet rich in anti-inflammatory Omega 3 oils (EPA and DHA) decreases incidence of colon cancer. Omega 3 oils are found in cold water fish such as salmon, sardines, mackerel and cod as well as flax-oil. Omega 3 oils decrease the levels of pro-inflammatory molecules that promote cancer. Because it is not always easy to get adequate levels of Omega 3 oils (EPA and DHA) in the modern diet, oral supplementation is a good alternative.  5.Eat More Garlic. Garlic is high in the minerals sulfur and selenium as well as plant chemicals such as allicin and flavonoids, all known to be beneficial to health. Preliminary studies suggest that garlic consumption may reduce the risk of developing several types of cancer, especially cancers of the gastrointestinal tract. 6.Be Physically Active. It’s hard to beat regular activity. It lowers the risk of many serious diseases, including colon-cancer, and provides a good mental boost. Any amount of physical activity is better than none, but it’s good to aim for around 30-minutes or more of moderate activity each day. Choose things you enjoy, like brisk walking, cycling, dancing or gardening. 7.Get Screened. Getting regular screening tests for colon-cancer is the single best way to protect yourself from the disease. It can catch cancer early, when it’s most treatable, and help prevent the disease by finding abnormal growths called polyps that can turn into cancer. screening options are: Fecal Occult Blood Test, Colonoscopy, Flexible Sigmoidoscopy and Virtual Colonoscopy.

Early Gastric Cancer
Early gastric cancer (EGC) is defined as invasive gastric cancer that invades no more deeply than the submucosa, irrespective of lymph node metastasis (T1, any N). While EGC is of particular importance for patient care in Eastern Asia, its significance extends to other disciplines and patient populations: Globally, gastric adenocarcinoma, with nearly one million incident cases annually, is the second leading cause of global cancer mortality and the leading cause of infection-associated cancer death. EGC accounts for 15 to 57 percent of incident gastric cancer, depending upon geographic location. Intestinal-type gastric adenocarcinoma, the major subtype, progresses through a series of histopathologic stages, from normal mucosa, to chronic gastritis, atrophic gastritis, intestinal metaplasia, and finally dysplasia and adenocarcinoma. The underlying cause of early pan-gastric mucosal inflammation and of chronic gastritis is Helicobacter Pylori (H. pylori) infection, with modulation by the host response, diet, and other environmental factors Since the discovery of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) in the 1980s, much has been learned about this gram-negative spiral bacteria and its associated disease states. In 1994, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Consensus Conference recognized H. pylori as a cause of gastric and duodenal ulcers. Later that year, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) declared H. pylori to be a group I human carcinogen for gastric adenocarcinoma. There is also evidence that H. pylori infection is a risk factor for gastric mucosa-associated lymphomas (MALT lymphomas). Despite these clear associations, there is marked individual variability in the outcomes of H. pylori infection, with most patients having a nonneoplastic rather than neoplastic process. H. pylori infection is associated with a complex interaction between genetic, environmental, and bacterial factors, which potentially explains the different outcomes possible following infection. Until these factors are better defined and their interactions better understood, practitioners should limit testing for and treating H. pylori to those situations where there is evidence to support a clinical benefit. Intestinal versus diffuse types — There are two distinct types of gastric adenocarcinoma, intestinal (well-differentiated) and diffuse (undifferentiated), which have distinct morphologic appearance, epidemiology, pathogenesis, and genetic profiles . The morphologic differences are attributable to intercellular adhesion molecules, which are well preserved in intestinal-type tumors and defective in diffuse carcinomas. In intestinal tumors, the tumor cells adhere to each other, and tend to arrange themselves in tubular or glandular formations, similar to adenocarcinomas arising elsewhere in the intestinal tract (hence their designation as intestinal-type). In contrast, a lack of adhesion molecules in diffuse carcinomas allows the individual tumor cells to grow and invade neighboring structures without the formation of tubules or glands

Stomach Cancer
Stomach Cancer Infection by Helicobacter pylori is believed to be the cause of most stomach cancer while autoimmune atrophic gastritis, intestinal metaplasia and various genetic factors are associated with increased risk levels. The Merck Manual states that diet plays no role in the genesis of stomach cancer.[2] However, the American Cancer Society lists the following dietary risks, and protective factors, for stomach cancer: "smoked foods, salted fish and meat, and pickled vegetables (appear to increase the risk of stomach cancer.) Nitrates and nitrites are substances commonly found in cured meats. They can be converted by certain bacteria, such as H. pylori, into compounds that have been found to cause stomach cancer in animals. On the other hand, eating fresh fruits and vegetables that contain antioxidant vitamins (such as A and C) appears to lower the risk of stomach cancer."[3] A December 2009 article in American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found a statistically significant inverse correlation between higher adherence to a Mediterranean Dietary Pattern and stomach cancer.[4] In more detail, H. pylori is the main risk factor in 65--80% of gastric cancers, but in only 2% of such infections.[5] Approximately ten percent of cases show a genetic component.[6] Some studies indicate that bracken consumption and spores are correlated with incidence of stomach cancer, though causality has yet to be established.[7] A very important but preventable cause of gastric cancer is tobacco smoking. Smoking increases the risk of developing gastric cancer considerably; from 40% increased risk for current smokers to 82% increase for heavy smokers which is nearly twice the risk for non-smoking population. Gastric cancers due to smoking mostly occur in upper part of stomach near esophagus[8][3][9] Another lifestyle cause of gastric cancer besides smoking is consumption of alcohol.[10][11][12] Alcohol as cause of cancer along with tobacco smoking as cause of cancer increase the risk of developing other cancers as well. Gastric cancer shows a male predominance in its incidence as up to three males are affected for every female. Estrogen may protect women against the development of this cancer form.[13] A very small percentage of diffuse-type gastric cancers (see Histopathology below) are thought to be genetic. Hereditary Diffuse Gastric Cancer (HDGC) has recently been identified and research is ongoing. However, genetic testing and treatment options are already available for families at risk.[14] Some researchers[15][16][17][18][19][20] showed a correlation between Iodine deficiency or excess, iodine-deficient goitre and gastric cancer; a decrease of the incidence of death rate from stomach cancer after implementation of the effective I-prophylaxis was reported too.[21] The proposed mechanism of action is that iodide ion can function in gastric mucosa as an antioxidant reducing species that can detoxify poisonous reactive oxygen species, such as hydrogen peroxide

Stomach Cancer Endoscopy
Ulcerated Stomach Cancer Diagnosis One of the key elements of an accurate diagnosis is distinguishing stomach cancer from peptic ulcer and its complications. Some diagnostic procedures used include: Endoscopy, which allows the doctor to see the area and take samples of tissues from suspicious areas Gastric carcinoma is a malignant tumour arising from the epithelium of the stomach. Adenocarcinoma accounts for 95% of gastric malignancies, the remaining 5% being composed of sarcomas. Although its frequency has decreased dramatically during the last few decades in the Western world, this cancer still contributes significantly to the overall mortality. The incidence of adenocarcinoma varies greatly depending on the geographical area. The annual incidence in Japan is estimated at 140 cases per 100,000 population per year, whereas in the Western world this incidence is estimated at 10 per 100,000 population. A higher incidence in males than females with a ratio of 1.5:2.5, in poor social groups and in people above 40 years of age is observed. It is generally assumed that food preservation by refrigeration and not by salting which leads to a reduction in nitrate derivatives is an important factor in the decline of the incidence of gastric adenocarcinoma in the Western world. Other aetiological factors are smoking, alcohol consumption and vitamin deficiencies. An increased incidence of adenocarcinoma of the stomach is noted in patients with pernicious anaemia, atrophic gastritis, or adenomatous polyps. Finally, genetic factors are also involved, particularly in patients presenting with a diffuse infiltrating type of carcinoma. It is well known that the majority of gastric carcinomas originate in the prepyloric and pyloric region. The gross appearance of adenocarcinoma has served as the basis for their classification as proposed by Borman: polypoid fungating (B1), ulcerated (B2), ulcerated and infiltrating (B3), diffuse infiltrating (B4). There is a considerable overlap between these classifications because many lesions will display more than one of these features. At the time of clinical diagnosis in patients with complaints the disease is commonly in an advanced stage and metastases in regional lymph nodes or in distant locations are commonly present.

Asbestos and GI Tract Cancer, Stephen Levin, MD 2009
This is a short clip from the video of the December 2, 2009 honoring of Stephen M. Levin, MD with the international Collegium Ramazzini’s prestigious Irving J. Selikoff Memorial Award in New York. Studies of asbestos workers suggest that asbestos exposure might be associated with gastrointestinal (esophagus and stomach) and colorectal (colon and rectum) cancers. However, the evidence is unclear. This summary is from the ATSDR website at http://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/asbestos/asbestos/health_effects/ . These studies showed small increases in the number of deaths from gastrointestinal and colorectal cancers. For example, among 17,800 insulation workers, 99 people died from these cancers, even though the rate in the general population is expected to be 59.4 deaths. Among 2,500 asbestos textile workers, 26 people died from these cancers, but 17.1 deaths were expected. Several other studies have shown similar patterns. However, other mortality studies of asbestos workers found no significantly increased risk for gastrointestinal or colorectal cancers. Other reviewers found no causal relationship between workers' exposure to asbestos and gastrointestinal cancer. Some evidence shows that short-term (acute) oral exposure to asbestos might bring on precursor lesions of colon cancer, and that long-term (chronic) oral exposure might increase the incidence of gastrointestinal tumors. Most epidemiologic studies to see if cancer incidence is higher than expected in places with high levels of asbestos in drinking water detected increases in cancer deaths or incidence rates at one or more tissue sites (mostly in the gastrointestinal tract). Some of these increases were statistically significant. However, the magnitudes of increases in cancer incidence tended to be rather small and might be related to other risk factors such as smoking. Also, these studies were conducted on worker populations, with generally higher exposures; still, only small and inconsistent elevations have been reported. This entire video , Stephen Levin, MD, honored with the Collegium Ramazzini's Irving J. Selikoff Memorial Award in 2009.(57 minutes) can be viewed at https://youtu.be/N5-H15WH8Qs : “This prestigious award is given periodically to a scientist or humanist whose studies and achievements have contributed to the protection of workers’ health and the environment,” explained Dr. Philip Landrigan in presenting the award, which has been conferred only five times in the academy’s 27-year history. Dr. Levin (1941 - 2012) was an internationally known expert in occupational medicine and asbestos related disease and Dr. Levin is the longtime medical director of the Mount Sinai- Irving J. Selikoff Center for Occupational & Environmental Medicine and prior director of the World Trade Center medical monitoring and treatment programs. He was Professor of Occupational Medicine in the Department of Preventive Medicine of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. He graduated in 1967 from the New York University School of Medicine. After a decade of practice in General Medicine in Pennsylvania, he came to Mount Sinai to receive his training in Occupational Medicine. Following completion of his training, he joined the Mount Sinai faculty. He spent the remainder of his career at Mount Sinai, rose through the academic ranks and was promoted to full Professor in 2011. He was Co-Director of the WTC Worker and Volunteer Medical Screening Program, funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which provided medical assessments, diagnostic referrals and occupational health education for over 20,000 workers and volunteers who performed rescue and recovery work at the WTC site. He served as Principal Investigator and Director of the Data and Coordination Center for the federally funded WTC Medical Monitoring Program that provides repeat examinations for the WTC responder cohort. Dr. Levin also served on the Science Advisory Board for the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO). ADAO created a short memorial video tribute to Dr. Levin which can be seen at https://youtu.be/kMu-lNHNt-o .

Stomach cancer risk factors
Today, CancerBro will explain various risk factors for stomach cancer in detail. Watch the video to better understand the disease and know its different risk factors. Remember prevention is better than cure. If you will take care of this risk factors than you can lower your risks of stomach cancer. Now we move on to the risk factors for different subtypes of stomach cancer. H. pylori infection is the most common risk factor for the individual variant. Whereas, the diffuse variant of stomach cancer is not associated with H. pylori infection. Due to successful anti H. pylori therapies available, the incidence of intestinal variant of stomach cancer is coming down. On the other hand, the incidence of diffuse variant is increasing. Dietary factors such as high salt or nitrate containing foods increase the incidence of intestinal variant of stomach cancer. Also, increased intake of smoked or packaged or processed food increases the incidence of intestinal subtype. Smoking is also a major risk factor for the intestinal subtype of stomach cancer, and the incidence increases with the intensity and duration of smoking. Any long standing benign ulcers of the stomach may also increase the risk of developing intestinal subtype of stomach cancer. On the other hand, the most important risk factor for diffuse variant of stomach cancer is genetical or familial, that is, it may be inherited from other family members. Stomach cancer may also be classified based on their location, that is, whether it is proximally located or distally located in the stomach. Proximally located means either in the gastroesophageal junction or cardia, whereas, distally located means either in the body or pylorus of stomach. This figure shows the location of gastroesophageal junction tumors, that is, the tumors located in the lower part of the esophagus, gastroesophageal junction or the upper part of stomach. The risk factors for all these three is almost similar. Whereas, this figure shows the location of the tumors present in the body and pylorus. The risk factors for these are different. The intestinal subtype of stomach cancer is less commonly seen in the GE junction and proximal part of stomach, and more commonly seen in the body and pylorus. And the diffuse variant is seen equally in the cardia, body and the pylorus of stomach. There has been a gradual increase in the incident of GE junction and proximal stomach tumors and a gradual decrease in the tumors in the body and pylorus, Let's understand why. H pylori infection is very commonly seen all over the world. Long standing infection with H. pylori leads to damage to normal epithelium of stomach, which is called as atrophic gastritis, due to which there is a decrease in gastric acid production. Due to chronic gastritis caused by H. pylori infection, there is a increased chance of cancers in the body and pylorus of the stomach. On the other hand, atrophic gastritis caused by chronic H. pylori infection decreases the acid production by the stomach. It reduces the chances of GERD, thereby reducing the chances of cancer in the GE junction and the cardia region of the stomach. But nowadays, due to successful anti H. pylori therapy available, the cancers in the body and the pylorus have decreased, whereas, those in the GE junction and cardia have increased. So these were the different subtypes of stomach cancer, and their risk factors. Subscribe to our YouTube channel as we will keep uploading more informative videos related to stomach cancer.

Coeliac disease, also spelled celiac disease, is a long term autoimmune disorder primarily affecting the small intestine that occurs in people who are genetically predisposed.[10] Classic symptoms include gastrointestinal problems such as chronic diarrhoea, abdominal distention, malabsorption, loss of appetite, and among children failure to grow normally.[1] This often begins between six months and two years of age.[1] Non-classic symptoms are more common, especially in people older than two years.[8][15][16][17] There may be mild or absent gastrointestinal symptoms, a wide number of symptoms involving any part of the body, or no obvious symptoms.[1] Coeliac disease was first described in childhood;[8][6] however, it may develop at any age.[1][8] It is associated with other autoimmune diseases, such as diabetes mellitus type 1 and thyroiditis, among others.[6] Coeliac disease is caused by a reaction to gluten, which are various proteins found in wheat and in other grains such as barley, and rye.[9][18][19] Moderate quantities of oats, free of contamination with other gluten-containing grains, are usually tolerated.[18][20] The occurrence of problems may depend on the variety of oat.[18][21] Upon exposure to gluten, an abnormal immune response may lead to the production of several different autoantibodies that can affect a number of different organs.[4][22] In the small-bowel this causes an inflammatory reaction and may produce shortening of the villi lining the small intestine (villous atrophy).[10][11] This affects the absorption of nutrients, frequently leading to anaemia.[10][19] Diagnosis is typically made by a combination of blood antibody tests and intestinal biopsies, helped by specific genetic testing.[10] Making the diagnosis is not always straightforward.[23] Frequently, the autoantibodies in the blood are negative[24][25] and many people have only minor intestinal changes with normal villi.[16][26] People may have severe symptoms and be investigated for years before a diagnosis is achieved.[27] Increasingly, the diagnosis is being made in people without symptoms as a result of screening.[28] Evidence regarding the effects of screening, however, is not sufficient to determine its usefulness.[29] While the disease is caused by a permanent intolerance to wheat proteins, it is not a form of wheat allergy.[10] The only known effective treatment is a strict lifelong gluten-free diet, which leads to recovery of the intestinal mucosa, improves symptoms, and reduces risk of developing complications in most people.[13] If untreated, it may result in cancers such as intestinal lymphoma and a slight increased risk of early death.[3] Rates vary between different regions of the world, from as few as 1 in 300 to as many as 1 in 40, with an average of between 1 in 100 and 1 in 170 people.[14] In developed countries, it is estimated that 80% of cases remain undiagnosed, usually because of minimal or absent gastrointestinal complaints and poor awareness of the condition.[5][30] Coeliac disease is slightly more common in women than in men.[31] The term "coeliac" is from the Greek κοιλιακός (koiliakós, "abdominal") and was introduced in the 19th century in a translation of what is generally regarded as an ancient Greek description of the disease by Aretaeus of Cappadocia.[3

MD PhD Walter Willett - Red meat & Cancer
The importance of proteins in the diet has been increasingly acknowledged over the last two decades as a result of new scientific findings in the field of nutrition. The value of proteins as an essential source of amino acids is well documented, but recently it has been recognized that dietary proteins exert many other functionalities in vivo by means of biologically active peptides. Inactive within the sequence of the parent protein, such peptides can be released by digestive enzymes during gastrointestinal transit (Bhat 2015). Defined as “a food component that can affect biological processes or substrates and, hence, have an impact on body function or condition and ultimately health”, a bioactive dietary substance should give a measurable biological effect in the range of doses it is usually assumed in the food and this bioactivity should be measured at a physiologically realistic level. Following this definition, milk, meat, fish and egg-derived bioactive peptides are their respective components that are able to influence some physiological functions, finally acting on body health condition. (Bhat 2015). By 1900, the surgeon William Banks had suggested that the increased incidence of cancer in his lifetime was related to the consumption of “butcher's meat” (Haddon 1900). More than 115 y later, a vast number of large-scale epidemiological studies have consistently shown a positive association between high red and/or processed meat consumption and a range of chronic diseases, including colorectal cancer, coronary heart disease and type 2 diabetes (Hecke 2017). High intakes of red meat and poor digestion of meat are positively associated with elevated risk of colonic cancer. This may in part be mediated by the production of the carcinogenic N-Nitroso Compounds (NOCs) and heterocyclic amines as a result of cooking at high temperatures; however, the additional possibility remains that proteins which are incompletely digested may enable the generation of carcinogenic by-products in the large intestine (Patel 2013). Dietary differences in the world likely contribute to global variations in cancer cases. Meat is an important source of proteins and provides essential amino acids. It is one of the largest dietary sources of heme. Epidemiological and experimental studies have suggested that the high heme content in red meat is associated with several diseases, including heart diseases, diabetes and cancer. Red meat (beef, lamb and pork) has 10-fold high heme content as compared to white meat (chicken). Studies have shown that an increased risk of several types of cancer is associated with diets high in red meat. On the contrary, consumption of substantial amounts of green vegetables is associated with decreased risk of colon cancer, likely because vegetables contain low levels of heme iron. Below we provide an overview of recent epidemiological data showing the association of increased risk of cancer with high heme iron intake (Hooda 2014). A number of studies have demonstrated a positive association between high intake of red meat and colorectal cancer (CRC). However, the association between red meat intake and other cancer types such as gastrointestinal, lung cancer, pancreatic, breast and esophageal are understudied and less consistent (Hooda 2014). Colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of death around the world and accounts for more than 1 million cases and 600,000 deaths each year. CRC is most commonly associated with dietary preferences high in red meat, suggesting that the risk of CRC can be reduced by controlling dietary intake (Hooda 2014). In 2011 a meta-analysis of prospective cohort studies of colon cancer reported heme intake of 566,607 individuals and 4734 cases of colon cancer. The study compared the RR of subjects with highest category of heme intake with those in lowest category. In their analysis of experimental studies in rats with hemically induced colon cancer, they showed that dietary hemoglobin and red meat promote a putative cancer lesion, an aberrant cryptic foci (Hooda 2014). Low pH of stomach releases heme-containing proteins hemoglobin and myoglobin from dietary meat (Hooda 2014). Several potential mechanisms have been suggested to explain the association between high intake of red meat and the risk of colorectal cancer. It has been shown that under anaerobic conditions, hemoproteins, hemoglobin and myoglobin in meat can react with nitric oxide to form nitrosating agents (Hooda 2014). Soon after transglutaminase was discovered, it was noted that some proteins might serve as amine acceptors, whereas others incorporated insignificant quantities of amine. It was later found that native hemoglobin was not a transglutaminase substrate, but that heat denaturation of hemoglobin made it a good substrate, at least at certain glutamine positions (Toone 2011).

What is GASTROINTESTINAL PERFORATION? What does GASTROINTESTINAL PERFORATION mean? GASTROINTESTINAL PERFORATION meaning - GASTROINTESTINAL PERFORATION definition - GASTROINTESTINAL PERFORATION explanation.

SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Gastrointestinal perforation, also known as ruptured bowel, is a hole in the wall of part of the gastrointestinal tract. The gastrointestinal tract includes the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, and large intestine. Symptoms include severe abdominal pain and tenderness. When the hole is in the stomach or early part of the small intestine the onset of pain is typically sudden while with a hole in the large intestine onset may be more gradual. The pain is usually constant in nature. Sepsis, with an increased heart rate, increased breathing rate, fever, and confusion may occur. The cause can include trauma such as from a knife wound, eating a sharp object, or a medical procedure such as colonoscopy, bowel obstruction such as from a volvulus, colon cancer, or diverticulitis, stomach ulcers, ischemic bowel, and a number of infections including C. difficile. A hole allows intestinal contents to enter the abdominal cavity. The entry of bacteria results in a condition known as peritonitis or in the formation of an abscess. A hole in the stomach can also lead to a chemical peritonitis due to gastric acid. A C.T. scan is typically the preferred method of diagnosis; however, free air from a perforation can often be seen on plain X-ray. Perforation anywhere along the gastrointestinal tract typically requires emergency surgery in the form of an exploratory laparotomy. This is usually carried out along with intravenous fluids and antibiotics. A number of different antibiotics may be used such as piperacillin/tazobactam or the combination of ciprofloxacin and metronidazole. Occasionally the hole can be sewn closed while other times a bowel resection is required. Even with maximum treatment the risk of death can be as high as 50%. A hole from a stomach ulcer occurs in about 1 per 10,000 people per year, while one from diverticulitis occurs in about 0.4 per 10,000 people per year.
