Jejunal obstruction and perforation resulting from herniation through broad ligament. (1/18)

Internal herniation of small bowel through broad ligament causing obstruction is rare. A case of jejunal herniation through broad ligament defect with resultant obstruction and perforation is presented.  (+info)

Lipoleiomyoma of broad ligament: a case report. (2/18)

Lipoleiomyoma is a very uncommon tumor, and broad ligament of uterus is one of the rare sites. No case has been reported in last five years. This case is presented because of its rarity and its uncommon site of occurrence.  (+info)

A new perspective on nerve-sparing radical hysterectomy: nerve topography and over-preservation of the cardinal ligament. (3/18)

BACKGROUND: Nerve-sparing radical hysterectomy was established by Japanese gynecologists. They identified two parts of the cardinal ligament, namely the vascular part and the neural part, and postulated that the neural part contained the pelvic splanchnic nerves. However, our fresh cadaver studies demonstrated that these nerves ran dorsomedially in contrast to the classical concept. The aim of this study is to further validate this finding in clinical cases. METHODS: We examined the intraoperative biopsy specimens collected from the neural part of the cardinal ligament in four patients with cervical carcinoma who underwent nerve-sparing radical hysterectomy with dissection of the neural part. RESULTS: Careful dissections demonstrated that the pelvic splanchnic nerves arise from the dorsomedial side of the neural part at the bottom of the pararectal space. The neural part was composed of a connective tissue with focal positive staining by S-100 protein. CONCLUSIONS: We propose that complete dissection of the cardinal ligament should be performed during nerve-sparing hysterectomy to increase its radicality.  (+info)

Successful laparoscopic treatment of an abdominal pregnancy in the broad ligament. (4/18)

Laparoscopic management of tubal ectopic pregnancy is the ideal form of treatment in most tertiary centres. Approximately 1% of ectopic pregnancies are abdominal pregnancies and these are usually managed by laparotomy. We present the first report of successful laparoscopic treatment of a 6.5 cm abdominal pregnancy located in the broad ligament of a 25-year-old woman.  (+info)

Strangulated hernia through a defect of the broad ligament and mobile cecum: a case report. (5/18)

We report a case of 28-year-old woman presenting with small bowel obstruction. She had neither prior surgery nor delivery. An upright abdominal radiograph revealed several air-fluid levels in the small bowel in the midabdomen and the pelvic cavity. Computed tomography demonstrated a dilated small bowel loop in the Douglas's fossa,but no definite diagnosis could be made. Supportive therapy with draining the intestinal fluid by a long intestinal tube did not result in improvement,which suggested the possibility of a strangulated hernia. Exploratory laparotomy revealed mobile cecum and a 20-cm length of the ileum herniated into a defect of the right broad ligament. As a gangrenous change was recognized in the incarcerated bowel, its resection was carried out,followed by end-to-end anastomosis and closure of the defects of the broad ligament. The postoperative course was uneventful. Intestinal obstruction is a very common cause for presentation to an emergency department,while internal hernia is a rare cause of obstruction. Among internal hernias, those through defects of the broad ligament are extremely rare. Defects of the broad ligament can be either congenital or secondary to surgery, pelvic inflammatory disease,and delivery trauma. In conclusion, we emphasize that hernia of the broad ligament should be added to the list of differential diagnosis for female patients presenting with an intestinal obstruction. Early diagnosis and surgical repair reduce morbidity and mortality from strangulation.  (+info)

Broad ligament hernia-associated bowel obstruction. (6/18)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: We present the case of a female patient 29 years of age with antecedents of laparoscopic laser ablation for endometriosis, laparoscopic appendectomy, and umbilical hernioplasty. METHODS: The patient was admitted to the hospital's emergency room for abdominal pain in the epigastrium, transfixing, irradiating to both upper quadrants and to the lumbar region, accompanied by nausea and gastrobiliary vomiting. Lipase determination was 170 mg/dL. Other laboratory findings were normal. Plain abdominal films on the patient's admission were normal, and computed tomography (CT) showed data compatible with acute pancreatitis. Without improvement during the patient's hospital stay, pain and vomiting increased in intensity and frequency. RESULTS: New abdominal x-rays revealed dilatation of small bowel loops. Management was begun for intestinal obstruction, with intravenous hydration and placement of a nasogastric tube without a good response. At 48 hours, a diagnostic laparoscopy was performed, revealing a 3-cm internal hernia in the left broad ligament in which a 20-cm segment of terminal ileum was encased. We performed liberation of the ileal segment and closed the hernial orifice by using the laparoscopic approach. CONCLUSION: The patient's evolution was excellent.  (+info)

Incarcerated internal hernia of the small intestine through a breach of the broad ligament: two cases and a literature review. (7/18)

Two cases of internal herniation through a defect in the broad ligament of the uterus are described. Both were successfully treated laparoscopically. This rare condition should be borne in mind when a middle-aged woman presents with colicky lower abdominal pain. The cause is unknown, but both congenital and acquired origins have been proposed. As far as emergency situations are concerned, laparoscopy has proven to be both a diagnostic and a therapeutic tool.  (+info)

Broad ligament pregnancy: a report of two cases. (8/18)

Broad ligament pregnancy is a rare event and diagnosis is often late in our setting. Two multiparous women in early thirties presented for routine antenatal care. Routine ultrasonography revealed midtrimester abdominal pregnancies. Broad ligament pregnancy was diagnosed in both cases at laparotomy and both had excision of pregnancy and salpingo-ophorectomy with satisfactory recovery. Ultrasonography is a useful tool in the early diagnosis of abdominal pregnancy in our environment. Routine ultrasonography in pregnancy is advocated in our setting.  (+info)

The authors reported a case of small bowel obstruction secondary to internal herniation through a defect of the broad ligament. This is a rare cause of small bowel obstruction. A 42 year-old woman without previous abdominal surgery presented with episodes of abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. Due to rather unspecific and changing symptoms and the fact that objective findings were normal the patient was discharged and admitted a couple of times before a computed tomography-scan showed small bowel obstruction. Acute diagnostic laparoscopy showed internal herniation of a loop of small bowel trapped in a 2 cm defect in the right side of the broad ligament. The defect was gently expanded bluntly and it was then possible to retract the strangulated part of the small bowel which afterwards was vital. The defect was sutured laparoscopically. The postoperative recovery was uneventful. This case demonstrates that a preoperative diagnosis is difficult and a high index of suspicion is necessary to prevent ...
Neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC), also called small cell carcinoma or large cell carcinoma, is a rare and aggressive tumor that develops mainly in the lung and intestine. More rarely, NEC develops in gynecologic organs, with poor prognoses. We experienced a case of NEC in the broad ligament of the uterus. The patient was a 74-year-old woman with symptoms of abdominal distension and constipation. Ultrasound sonography detected an abdominal tumor larger than 10 cm. She was then admitted to our hospital. She underwent surgery under the diagnosis of ovarian cancer, but the bilateral ovaries and uterus were normal in appearance, and a tumor was developing instead from the broad ligament of the uterus ...
Hernia through a defect of the broad ligament is extremely rare in children. These defects can result from a developmental defect or a spontaneous rupture of cystic formations remnants of mesonephric ducts or M ller. Genital anomalies associated with unilateral renal agenesis are more common in females. We report the case of a 13 months girl allowed for assessment of recurrent urinary tract infection; abdominal examination did not objectified palpable mass, the external genitalia were without abnormalities. Abdominal ultrasound revealed a left renal space is empty with a retrovesical cyst. Cystography was requested that objectified a large pelvic cystic mass retrovesical communicating with the bladder, there was also a left vesicoureteral reflux. Uro- MRI showed a cystic formation retrovesical communicating with the bladder, the right pelvic kidney; uterus is normal size for age. DMSA scintigraphy confirmed the absence of the left kidney with the right kidney that ensures 100 % of total renal function.

The ovaries are paired organs that lie on either side of the uterus close to the lateral pelvic wall, behind the broad ligament and anterior to the rectum. Each ovary is attached to a broad ligament along by a double fold of peritoneum, the mesovarium. Ovaries of adult women in the reproductive age-group are approximately 3 to 5 x 1.5 to 3 x 0.6-1.5 cm but their size varies considerably due to follicular derivatives. The external surface is usually convoluted. Three ill-defined zones may be discerned on the cut surface: an outer cortex, a central medulla and the hilus. Follicular structures (cystic follicles, corpora lutea, white corpora albicantia) are usually visible in the cortex.. The ovarian cortex consists of ovarian follicles with stroma in between them. Included in the follicles are the cumulus oophorus, membrana granulosa (and the granulosa cells inside it), corona radiata, zona pellucida, and primary oocyte. The zona pellucida, theca of follicle, antrum and liquor folliculi are also ...
The uterus-like mass (ULM) is a tumorlike anatomical entity originally described in the ovary in 1981 and thereafter reported in several locations of the pelvis and abdominal cavity including broad ligament, greater omentum, cervix, small intestine, mesentery and conus medullaris. Basically, it is represented by a miniature uterus comprising a smooth muscle wall lined by endometrium thus outlining a uterus anatomical structure. Some of the reported cases have been associated to urinary tract and internal genitalia malformations whereas others appeared as a solitary finding. The term endomyometriosis has also been applied to this lesion. Different pathogenetic views have been suggested for this anomaly: a) a metaplastic change in endometriosis foci bringing about smooth muscle hyperplasia; b) a congenital anomaly due to fusion defects of the Muellerian ducts; and c) a sub-coelomic transformation of the mesenchyme. ULM has also been reported associated to endometrial carcinoma and breast cancer. A ...

Randomised trial comparing herbal preparation Lengzhu Xiaoliu decoction intramural non surgical uterine fibroid treatment mifepristone for treatment of 142 patients with data for outcome are not available. Enucleation of the mass was done after opening the right broad ligament and dividing the round ligament. Stromal PR deficiency is a major contributor to progesterone resistance and the blunted biochemical responses to progesterone that are observed. In the immediate post-operative phase, mean hospitalization times were found to be nearly 3x longer in the laparoscopic myomectomy group.
Calcarea Carb is a very useful Homeopathic medicine for treating heavy periods from uterine fibroids. However, when the uterus is very large, a transabdominal pelvic ultrasound may be needed to measure the full size of the fibroids and uterus. Although by clinical examination and newer imaging modalities, we can easily know about size, number, and origin of these tumors and any anatomical distortion of surrounding vital organs, but some time it is very difficult to differentiate pre-operatively between large broad ligament leiomyomas and ovarian/adnexal pathology specially if cystic degeneration or necrosis is present in leiomyoma. And, I also take bleeding fibroids after intercourse herbs to help balance my hormones and shrink the fibroids. Upon completion of data collection, we will be able to compare leiomyoma growth as a function of multiplicity and location; examine the relationship between leiomyoma growth and clinical symptoms or outcome; identify molecular, cellular, and pathological
Although racial differences in socioeconomic status and access to health care, as well as racial differences in known risk factors for fibroids, may contribute to this finding, two recent studies suggest that these factors do fibroid cyst in ovary completely explain the discrepancy. Internal herniation through a defect of the broad ligament of the uterus. According to experts, eight foods are responsible for 90 per cent of food allergies. With the addition of our new MRI magnet being installed this fall, we also will have the ability to offer screening MRI, which is recommended for certain groups of patients at increased risk for breast cancer.

Although the vaginal artery usually arises as a separate branch of the internal iliac artery, it may at times share a common trunk with the uterine artery or form anastomoses within the broad ligament. By all means it would cause a reflux when your body digests these types of fruit. Compared with twin pregnancies without fibroid tumors, fibroids and drinking alcohol researchers found that the presence of fibroid tumors was not associated with increased odds of small-for-gestational-age growth, preterm delivery before 34 weeks of gestation, or other adverse outcomes. She stated that my hairfall is hormonal and suggested I go on Dianette to stop hair loss and re-grow my hair. The microspheres block blood flow to the fibroids resulting in both fibroid shrinkage and symptom relief.
HBL is a histologically benign tumor that is associated with VHL disease in 20 % of cases but sporadic in 80 % of cases [1, 5]. Developmentally arrested HBL progenitor cells in the molecular layer of the cerebellum may progress to a tumor in patients with VHL, which is an autosomal dominant cancer predisposition syndrome caused by germline mutations in the VHL gene, a tumor suppressor gene localized at chromosome 3p25-26 that is responsible for tumors in different parts of the body. Patients with VHL syndrome are at risk for the development of new lesions over their lifetime, such as cysts in the pancreas, kidney, broad ligament, and epididymis, as well as clear cell renal cell carcinoma, pheochromocytoma, and/or retinal angiomas. These patients require a lifelong follow-up [6]. Given that a simple peripheral blood test can determine the presence of the VHL gene mutation, we recommend that this study is routinely performed for all patients with an HBL to guide follow-up.. The gene may also be ...
Gartners duct is a potential embryological remnant in human female development of the mesonephric duct in the development of the urinary and reproductive organs. It was discovered and described in 1822 by Hermann Treschow Gartner. The paired mesonephric ducts in the male, in contrast, go on to form the paired epididymis, ductus deferens, ejaculatory duct and seminal vesicle. In the female they may persist between the layer of the broad ligament of the uterus and in the wall of the vagina. These may give rise to Gartners duct cysts.

The invention provides devices, systems and methods for clamping arteries which are useful in reducing or abolishing blood flow in an artery, and may be used to control hemorrhage following a caesarian delivery. A clamping device embodying features of the invention includes a pair of clamping members with opposed pressure-applying members having facing pressure-applying surfaces, at least one of which is a yieldable pressure-applying surface. The yieldable pressure-applying surface is preferably resilient. The clamping members are configured to adjust the distance between pressure-applying surfaces, and a blood flow sensor is disposed on at least one of the pressure-applying members to aid in locating the target artery and also to monitor blood flow through the artery. The clamping device is particularly suitable for occluding uterine arteries by compressing the broad ligament which contains the uterine artery and which is connected to the patients uterus with the arterial clamp.

While rare, abdominal pregnancies have a higher chance of maternal mortality, perinatal mortality and morbidity compared to normal and ectopic pregnancies, but on occasion a healthy viable infant can be delivered. Because tubal, ovarian and broad ligament pregnancies are as difficult to diagnose and treat as abdominal pregnancies, their exclusion from the most common definition of abdominal pregnancy has been debated. Others - in the minority - are of the view that abdominal pregnancy should be defined by a placenta implanted into the peritoneum.. ...
The sigmoid mesocolon is the continuation of the descending mesocolon. It is the reflection of peritoneum which connects the sigmoid flexure with the posterior wall of the extreme lower portion of the abdominal cavity and with the posterior wall of the pelvic cavity. It extends from the termination of the descending colon in the iliac fossa, at the lateral border of the psoas major muscle, to the commencement of the rectum, opposite the middle portion of the sacrum. In following the line of attachment of the sigmoid mesocolon, it crosses the psoas major muscle and the iliac vessels near their bifurcation. After passing slightly to the right, to descend obliquely, it reaches almost to the floor of the pelvis. The whole of the sigmoid mesocolon is to the left of the median line. The width of the sigmoid mesocolon permits the greater portion of the sigmoid flexure, when distended, to occupy the pelvic cavity, and often to extend into the hypogastric region. The sigmoid arteries and the superior ...

Case Description- A 1-year-old female Domestic Shorthair cat weighing 2.5 kg with one week history of protruding mass from the vulva was admitted. Clinical Findings- The prolapse was complete involving both horns protruding from the vulva and a soft bulging mass was palpable inside the prolapsed uterus. Treatment and Outcome- The prolapsed organ was irrigated with warm saline solution and the debris was cleaned. A ventral midline celiotomy was performed for reduction of the mass and sterilization of the cat. The urinary bladder was incarcerated in the right horn of the uterus. The left ovary was inside the mass beside the bladder. Ovarian pedicles were intact but broad ligament was torn. An ovariohysterectomy was performed. Clinical Relevance- Complete uterine prolapse is an emergency case of surgery. If the prolapse includes abdominal contents, amputation of the mass may be avoided and reduction of the uterus and abdominal contents through celiotomy should be prioritized. It seems that this case is
Less commonly, some individuals develop endolymphatic sac tumors (ear tumors that can cause deafness if undetected), pancreatic tumors, and cystadenomas of the epididymis or broad ligament. Other manifestations include cysts (pockets of fluid) of the kidney and pancreas.. The VHL gene is a tumor suppressor gene located on chromosome 3, which usually controls cell growth and cell death. Both copies of a tumor suppressor gene must be altered, or mutated, before a person will develop cancer. In about 80 percent of VHL cases, the first mutation is inherited from either the mother or the father and is present in all cells of the body at birth. This is called a germline mutation. Whether a person who has a germline mutation will develop a tumor and where the tumor(s) will develop depends on where (in which cell type) the second mutation occurs. For example, if the second mutation is in the retina, then a retinal hemangioblastoma may develop. If it is in the adrenal gland, then a pheochromocytoma may ...

Voiding dysfunction is a common complication after radical pelvic surgery. To reduce this complication, nerve-sparing radical pelvic surgery was introduced. However, several patients experienced voiding difficulty despite nerve-sparing radical pelvic surgery. Thus, we investigated the functional and molecular changes of the bladder in rats, which demonstrated voiding dysfunction induced by nerve damage during nerve-sparing radical pelvic surgery. Male rats were used and assigned to normal, sham-operated, and bilateral crushing nerve bundles from major pelvic ganglion (MPG) to bladder group. After one, two, and four-week crushing injury, significantly decreased contractile response and increased connective tissue of the detrusor were observed and these results were reliable findings with voiding difficulty following nerve-sparing radical pelvic surgery. After crushing injury, significantly increased M2 muscarinic receptor expression was observed and this might be regarded as the compensatory response.
VETERINARY CARE FOR YOUR POTBELLIED PIG. Veterinary care for your pet pig is imperative. Just as you seek out professional care for yourself and your children, your pet potbellied pig has the same needs. Many veterinarians recommend your pig be seen twice a year for grooming needs, check ups, vaccinations and worming. It is NAPPAs recommendation that you absolutely visit your vet once a year to receive the appropriate health care for your pig. To help your pet pig live a long and healthy life, the following are several considerations.. Dont. • Assume your male or female pet pig will make the best pet if it remains unneutered or unspayed.. • Assume your pet pigs breeder/sanctuary has provided the necessary medical attention.. • Assume your pet pig needs no vaccinations, just because she lives in the city.. • Assume your pet pig can wait until the last minute to establish a relationship with a qualified potbellied pig veterinarian.. • Assume your pet pig will get well without proper ...

At this time there is no data demonstrating any risk of dogs and cats contracting this strain of the virus," says Dr. Louise Murray, the Director of Medicine at the ASPCAs Bergh Memorial Hospital in New York City. "However, owners of pet pigs, as well as farmers, should monitor their animals health more closely during this outbreak.". Anyone with a Vietnamese potbellied-pig, an African pygmy, or other pet pigs should be aware that there are Influenza type A vaccines available and recommended for healthy swine.. The ASPCA also recommends keeping pet pigs and swine farms isolated from any public exposure that might put them at risk for illness. The American Association of Swine Veterinarians (I had no idea there was such a group until today) suggests that visitors should not be allowed into swine production units, and for humans to avoid unnecessary contact with pigs. Because there are many causes of illness in pigs, if your pet pig is unwell, it is recommended to consult with your ...

METHODS: A retrospective review of 1,000 retrocolic Lap-RYGB was performed to identify those who developed postoperative internal hernias. Clinical symptoms, radiologic characteristics, and operative outcomes were analyzed to determine clinical and radiologic diagnostic accuracy (including computed tomography [CT] scan and upper gastrointestinal imaging). Subsequent independent review was performed to match operative intervention with radiologic imaging and interpretation. Operative outcomes, including the hernia closure technique, hospital length of stay, and mortality were obtained. RESULTS: Of 1,000 Lap-RYGB procedures, 45 internal hernias were identified (4.5%) in 43 patients...The most common clinical symptoms included intermittent, postprandial abdominal pain, and/or nausea vomiting (86%), although 20% had no abdominal tenderness. Initial radiologic imaging studies were diagnostic in 64%, although subsequent review of all imaging studies showed diagnostic abnormalities in 97%...The mean ...

One of the main goals of immunotherapy is to generate cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) that can recognize antigens that are specifically expressed on the tumors, thereby leading to tumor destruction. However, there is considerable molecular diversity in ovarian cancer, and a major factor limiting vaccine progress is the lack of well-characterized rejection antigens (13). IFNγ production and proliferation are clear signs of specific activation; however, they do not prove cytotoxic ability. Our paramount objective was to determine the ability of antigen-specific T cells to kill autologous target cells expressing HERV-K while ignoring benign or normal cells. Our cohort of samples provided us a unique opportunity to achieve this objective in that it allowed cytolytic activity of autologous target cells (instead of an established cancer line not specific to the patient) to be assessed. To this end, we prepared KSU-primed IVS cells from ovarian cancer patient Acc115 (a malignant mixed mullerian tumor; ...
Sir, - Dr Blatt and her colleagues (Oct 18, p 914) report excessive chemotherapy-related myelotoxicity in children with Down syndrome and acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. We have had the same experience,1.2. in 24 patients unusual clinical presentations and unexpected methotrexate (MTX) toxicity were observed. All patients had severe toxicity at standard MTW doses. Mouth ulcerations and bone marrow depression were seen regardless of the route of administration (oral, intrathecal, or intravenous). A 30-50 % reduction of the standard dose war tolerated. Methotrexate absorption and clearance were studied in 2 patients and were normal. The toxicity may be due to a gene dosage effect for the three enzymes known to be on chromosome 21 and intervening in purine metabolisme.3.4. Increased purine synthesis implies greater tetrahydrofolic acid demands and therefore greater sensitivity to an antifolate agent. This clinical study war confirmed by the in vitro demonstration that trisomy 21 patients were twice ...

I would like to share my medical story that started with a wrong diagnosis that led to the truth! So I was in fact very blessed by my wrong diagnosis.Several months ago I went to visit a gastroenterologist specialist as I had been suffering from intermittent constipation which was chronic when I had it, and happening with much more regularity. I could never understand the reason why as I ate a healthy diet with lots of fruits, veggies and fibre that would send normal constitutions to the bathroom several times a day. All I knew was that the food I was eating was not leaving my body and I was always uncomfortable with severe bloating. I had tried to loose some excess weight for years and never succeeded - I am about 10 lbs overweight.The specialist offered to do a colonoscopy (the very thing I had dreaded for years and had put off looking into my problem as a result of) I had accompanied my mum for a colonoscopy several years ago when I lived in the UK and they had to stop it as she was screaming ...

OBJECTIVES:. Primary To determine the feasibility of dual modality therapy described as cytotoxic therapy followed by radiation therapy for the management of Malignant Mixed Mullerian Tumors (MMMTs).. Secondary. * To describe the response rate by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors. STATISTICAL DESIGN:. This study used a two-stage design to evaluate feasibility of oxaliplatin and gemcitabine prior to radiation therapy defined as completing 3 cycles of chemotherapy. The null and alternative therapy completion rates were 25% and 50%. If 3 or more participants enrolled in the stage one cohort (n=9 participants) complete therapy than accrual would proceed to stage two (n=15 participants). If therapy was completed by at least 10 participants in the final set of 24 evaluable participants then this regimen would be deemed worthy of further study. This design had 80% power given one-sided type I error of 5% with the probability of stopping early 0.60. ...

A case of an entirely intramuscular mixed tumour occurred in an 82-year-old man, who presented with a large mass in the region of the right triceps muscle. A lobulated tumour was seen, with plump, round epithelioid cells embedded in a chondromyxoid stroma. Immunohistochemical examination showed strong S100 protein and pancytokeratin positivity in most of the tumour cells. Cytogenetic analysis revealed complex clonal chromosomal changes: 47, XY, +i(2) (q10), -15, der(17) t(15; 17) (q11; p12), +r. Differential diagnosis against extraskeletal myxoid chondrosarcoma (EMC) may be problematic, particularly in an incisional biopsy.

Hedge fund billionaire Steve Cohen has had to put his pet pig out to pasture after the animal became too porky. "Romeo was purchased by Stevie Cohen as a piglet, but he grew to be over 150 pounds. Romeo is actually a very domesticated, intelligent and affectionate pig, but recently he started to get a little moody. The family got advice from a vet that Romeo would be better in the company of other animals, so Steve arranged for him to go to a farm to be with other pigs," a source told the Post. Ultimately, the pampered pig got too big for the 35,000-square-foot mansion after his weight grew to 150 pounds. After having this pig as a valued family member for FIVE years, Romeo was sent to a rescue in Florida by private jet. Yeah, that doesnt make you a responsible pet pig owner.

Kenneth Copperwheat, DO, Gerrit Dunford, MD, Patrick Sowa, MD, Rami Lutfi, MD, FACS, FASMBS. St. Joseph Hospital, Chicago. Here we present a video case report of a successful laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy after a case of severe pancreatitis requiring deviation from standard operative technique. During the index operation, upon dissection into the lesser sac, we unexpectedly encountered multiple dense and focal adhesions. Though his preoperative esophagogastroduodenoscopy was unremarkable, we were ultimately concerned about the possibility of a chronic penetrating gastric ulcer or pancreatic neoplasm. Due to diagnostic uncertainty, the procedure was electively aborted. Postoperatively, he revealed that he had been hospitalized five years prior for severe pancreatitis. Imaging reviewed from that hospitalization was concerning for peripancreatic fluid collections and possible necrosis. Repeat imaging did not demonstrate a discrete mass; however, there were adhesive fusions between the stomach and ...
Background: Skin Adnexal Tumours (SATs ) are large and divergent group of tumours which are classified based on their appendageal differentiation into eccrine,follicular,sebaceous and apocrine.They pose daunting diagnostic challenges to both clinicians and pathologists alike.This study aims to evaluate the histopathological charecterestics of skin adnexal neoplasms and correlate with their clinical profile.Methods : This is a retrospective study of skin adnexal tumours (28 cases) diagnosed on histopathological examination over a period of two years .( January 2014 to December 2015 ).Results: Skin adnexal tumours are uncommon lesions with an incidence of 0.27%.These tumours were common in the 51 to 60 age group and showed a female preponderance. Head and neck region particularly the scalp was commonly involved. Benign tumours were more common (78.6% ) than the malignant ones (21.4%). .Sweat gland tumours constituted the largest group (61%) followed by hair follicle tumours (21%)and sebaceous ...
An increased incidence of uterine malignancies has been reported in association with tamoxifen treatment. The underlying mechanism is unknown, but may be related to the estrogen-like effect of tamoxifen. Most uterine malignancies seen in association with tamoxifen are classified as adenocarcinoma of the endometrium. However, rare uterine sarcomas, including malignant mixed mullerian tumors (MMMT), have also been reported. Uterine sarcoma is generally associated with a higher FIGO stage (III/IV) at diagnosis, poorer prognosis, and shorter survival. Uterine sarcoma has been reported to occur more frequently among long-term users (greater than or equal to 2 years) of tamoxifen citrate than non-users. Some of the uterine malignancies (endometrial carcinoma or uterine sarcoma) have been fatal.. In the NSABP P-1 trial, among participants randomized to tamoxifen there was a statistically significant increase in the incidence of endometrial cancer (33 cases of invasive endometrial cancer, compared to 14 ...
The 2nd in Greece Laparoscopic Nephrectomy for Transplantation in Living Donor was successfully performed on Thursday, September 24th, at the Organ Transplantation Unit of "Evangelismos", the only hospital in Greece applying this method. Dr. Drakopoulos, along with the 1st Surgery Clinic & Organ Transplantation Unit, laparoscopically removed the kidney transplant from a mother aged 76, which was then transplanted to her son, aged 48, who was suffering from chronic renal failure.. It is worth mentioning that the living related kindney transplant program is vital to the contribution of the offer increase of live kidney donors in Greece, given that the laparoscopic approach provides fast recovery, shorter hospitalization and return to the donors everyday activities.. ...
INTRODUCTION. The advent of the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) screening test has resulted in diagnosis of prostate cancer at an early stage. Most patients are detected with elevated PSA levels; however, progression to advanced disease or initial presentation with metastasis is not uncommon.. The present case had an unusual clinical presentation of metastatic prostate cancer. Intracranial metastases from prostate adenocarcinoma are very uncommon, and initial presentation with symptomatic brain involvement is especially rare. We describe such a case of prostate cancer with metastasis to the clivus and associated soft tissue component causing neurologic deficits. A literature review of similar clinical presentations of prostate cancer was conducted and is discussed.. CASE REPORT. A 65-year-old male of African-American ethnicity was referred to our institution. He had blurred vision and diplopia of 1-month duration. He denied any associated eye pain, headache, or other ocular or neurologic ...

Myxofibrosarcoma (MFS) is characterized by abundant myxoid stroma, a wide spectrum of cytological atypia, and frequent local recurrence. Some soft tissue tumors with myxoid stroma can histologically mimic MFS, but have different biological behaviors. Here we sought to identify a useful diagnostic marker for MFS. After our analysis of the gene expression dataset from the Gene Expression Omnibus database, we focused on claudin 6 (CLDN 6). The status of CLDN 6 was assessed by immunohistochemistry in 61 samples of MFS and other (benign) myxoid soft tissue tumors (28 myxoma samples, 12 nodular fasciitis samples), 18 low-grade fibromyxoid sarcoma, 30 myxoid liposarcoma, 29 extraskeletal myxoid chondrosarcoma and 27 dedifferentiated liposarcoma with myxoid feature samples ...
The authors previously demonstrated nerve trunks and autonomic ganglia of the hypogastric plexus within the uterosacral ligament (USL) and the cardinal ligaments. The nerve content of these ligaments is greatest closer to the pelvic sidewalls and diminishes toward the insertion, of the ligaments into the uterus, with the greater nerve content in the USL. Here the authors determine whether the nerve content of the superficial and deep portion of the USLs, where they are divided at a radical hysterectomy, differ. Biopsies were taken from the right and left superficial and deep USL in 6 patients during radical hysterectomy for early-stage cervical cancer. Indirect immunofluorescence vas performed using primary antibodies to (1) the panneuronal marker PGP 9.5, (2) the parasympathetic marker vasoactive intestinal peptide, (3) the sympathetic markers tyrosine hydroxylase and neuropeptide-Y, (4) the sensory and nociceptive nerve marker substance P, and (5) the sensory and sensory-motor nerve marker ...
Uterine lipoleiomyoma. They result from degeneration of smooth muscle cells in an ordinary leiomyoma and represent a rare benign tumour of the uterus.. Epidemiology. Lipoleiomyomas have a reported incidence of 0.03-0.20% and are typically found in postmenopausal patients with typical uterine leiomyomas.. Clinical presentation. Although most patients are asymptomatic, they can present with symptoms similar to leiomyomas of the same size and location. Symptoms include, but are not limited to, abdominal/pelvic pain, palpable mass and menstrual abnormalities.. Pathology. Many considered a uterine lipoleiomyoma as a distinct variety of leiomyoma. Histologically, it is composed of variable amounts of adipocytes and smooth muscle cells, separated by thin fibrous tissue. The exact aetiology is not well known, but is thought to represent fatty metaplasia of the smooth muscle cells of a leiomyoma. Lesions can vary in size from a few mm to a few cm.. Radiographic features. Pelvic ultrasound. ...

Video Endoscopic Sequence 2 of 2.. Lumbo-peritoneal catheter. On this Rx film. the catheter is seen on the ascending colon, also was observed in the colonoscopy through the walls of the colon.. To enlarge the image in a new windows click on it. The operation is performed under General anesthetic by a neurosurgeon and usually takes a couple of hours. Patients with lumbar-peritoneal shunts are left with two scars; a vertical scar down part of the lumbar of the spine, and a horizontal scar across the upper abdomen. A lumbar-peritoneal shunt is expected to remain in situ for the lifespan of the patient unless revisions or relocation of the shunt is required. In some cases the shunt has been removed completely, however this is very rare as it is difficult to determine when a patients condition has changed to enable them to be independent of the shunt and relapse of the condition can occur requiring the patient to undergo surgery for the placement of a shunt again.. A Lumbar subcutaneous shunt (LS ...
cyld displays a dominant genetic linkage to multiple types of cutaneous adnexal tumors that often develop in bulky clusters in the head, neck, trunk, and pubic areas (10, 37). Although predominantly benign (10), these tumors are painful and disfiguring, can undergo malignant transformation with metastasis over time, and eventually lead to mortality (38-41). Thus, the malignant features of the tumors developed on K14-CYLDm transgenic mice are in line with the clinical manifestations seen in patients. Our transgenic tumor models allowed us to define JNK/AP1 signaling cascade as a key regulator in CYLDm-driven epidermal malignancy.. Cyld loss of function is not only relevant to cutaneous adnexal tumors but also to many other cancers including SCC (22,42). It is worth noting that cyld−/− mice are sensitive to chemically induced carcinogenesis, but the tumors developed on these mice are not more malignant than those of WT mice (22). We predict that the differential tumor growth phenotypes ...

Introduction: Percutaneous CT-guided lung biopsy is the gold standard minimally invasive technique for sampling lung lesions beyond the reach of standard bronchoscopy. Radial EBUS offers an alternative approach but which patients are most suited to this procedure has not been defined. The primary aim of this study was to investigate whether CT characteristics could predict the success of radial EBUS.. Methods: The University Hospital of South Manchester provides radial EBUS for a large cancer Network in the UK. Procedures are performed under conscious sedation without fluoroscopy, double-hinged curettes or guide sheaths. This retrospective analysis of a prospectively maintained database included all patients undergoing radial EBUS from January 2011 to June 2013. Lesion size, location, position, presence of a bronchus sign and morphology on CT were analysed against pre-defined outcomes using univariate and multivariate analysis.. Results: 117 patients underwent radial EBUS in the study period ...

Diagnosis: Endometriosis at the incision site.. Discussion: Endometriosis of the skin and soft tissue tend to occur at sites of prior surgical scars resulting from the spillage of endometrial tissue during surgery. The incidence of endometriosis at the site of prior C-section scar is estimated to be less than 0.1%. They typically present 2-8 years later with nodules around the surgical tract. History of a slow growing mass with cyclical pain may be elicited. Endometriosis needs to be differentiated from other benign and malignant lesions and for possible malignant transformation. The main differential diagnoses include metastatic well differentiated endometrioid adenocarcinoma, low grade endometrial stromal sarcoma and malignant mixed mullerian tumor.. The diagnosis of endometriosis is established by the triad of hemosiderin-laden macrophages, endometrial glands and spindle cell stroma. Unfortunately on cytology, all three components are rarely present and may erroneously suggest a purely ...
We report on a 15-year-old female with a 3-month history of a pruritic, erythematous cutaneous eruption on the right cheek and perioral area. The lesion had a linear distribution following the lines of Blaschko. Histopathological findings and direct immunofluorescence were compatible with chronic cutaneous lupus erythematosus (LE). Treatment with topical steroids and systemic antimalarial agents over 2 months showed hardly any improvement contrary to similar cases reported in the literature in the past. Histological findings move this case close to LE. However, the unusual clinical presentation as well as the resistance to antimalarial drugs do not fully allow to confirm this suspicion. Therefore, we recommend to call this new entity LE-like facial Blaschkitis of the adult. ...
Two men, aged in their 20s, presented with multiple, soft, rounded papules on the prepuce. The lesions were centrally umbilicated, resembling molluscum contagiosum, but clearly distinct from Tysons glands. Surface microscopy showed well-defined, milky-white, bag-shaped structures, which under histological examination were found to be sebaceous glands with various features of hyperplasia. A lymphocytic T-cell infiltrate, closely associated with progressive degeneration and destruction of the sebocytes, was visible around the glands. In the differential diagnosis of penile papular lesions, this unusual clinical presentation supported by dermatoscopy is consistent with preputial sebaceous gland hyperplasia. As both patients had a prominent T-cell infiltration, it is possible that under inflammatory stimulation, sebaceous glands undergo hypertrophy and gradual central involution. ...
Meal plans for gastric bypass patients - Gnawing left upper/center quad pain thats more constant lately. Goes away when eating a meal. Had gastric bypass 2 yrs ago? Gastric bypass pain. Epigastric and left sided pain can be a marginal ulcer, reflux esophagitis, a gastro-gastric fistula (which can cause the ulcer too), an ulcer in your gastric remnant, and an internal hernia. You should see your surgeon, get started on a proton pump inhibitor to see if it helps. Other tests to get would be an endoscopy to look at your pouch, and if that us neg, a ct scan to r/o internal hernia.
