Portogastric fistula complicating remote gastric variceal coil embolization

Clinical Journal of Gastroenterology

We present a case of a patient who suffered a rare complication of gastroesophageal varix coil embolization. During a follow up esophagogastroduodenoscopy, 4 years after transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt placement and variceal coil embolization, the coil pack was endoscopically visualized to be eroding into the gastric lumen.

Cajal Bodies & Gems

Cajal bodies or coiled bodies are dense foci of coilin protein. Gemini of Cajal bodies, or gems, are microscopically similar to Cajal bodies. It is believed that Cajal bodies play important roles in RNA processing while gems assist the Cajal bodies. Find the latest research on Cajal bodies and gems here.
