    International surgery 100(6):1004 (2015) PMID 26414821 PMCID PMC4587498

    The present study examined whether acute, nonperforated appendicitis is a surgical emergency requiring immediate intervention or a disease that can be treated with a semielective operation. Immediate appendectomy has been the gold standard in the treatment of acute appendicitis because of the ri...
  3. Splenic Artery Pseudoaneurysm Masquerading as a Pancreatic Cyst-A Diagnostic Challenge.

    International surgery 100(6):1069 (2015) PMID 26414829 PMCID PMC4587508

    Splenic artery pseudoaneurysm is a rare entity. Clinical diagnosis is challenging because presentation is often varied. It can range from an incidental finding to hemodynamic collapse from sudden rupture and bleeding. The most common cause of this condition is pancreatitis. We report an unusual ...
  4. Prolapsing Gastric Polyp Causing Intermittent Gastric Outlet Obstruction.

    International surgery 100(6):1148 (2015) PMID 25578789 PMCID PMC4587521

    Gastric polyps are often an incidental finding on upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, with an incidence up to 5%. The majority of gastric polyps are asymptomatic, occurring secondary to inflammation. Prior reviews discussed Helicobacter pylori (H pylori)-associated singular gastric polyposis; howe...
  5. Hemodynamic Monitoring During Heated Intraoperative Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy Using the FloTrac/Vigileo System.

    International surgery 100(6):1033 (2015) PMID 25590363 PMCID PMC4587503

    Cytoreductive surgery with HIPEC has provided a chance for long-term survival in selected patients. However, perioperative management remains a challenge for the anesthesiology team. The aim of this study was to evaluate the changes in hemodynamic parameters during hyperthermic intraperitoneal c...
  6. Schneiderian-Type Papilloma of the Middle Ear: A Review of the Literature.

    International surgery 100(6):989 (2015) PMID 25564042 PMCID PMC4587528

    Schneiderian-type papilloma of the middle ear is a rare finding. We present a 46-year-old Aboriginal man with a large tympanic membrane perforation and a Schneiderian-type papilloma filling the middle ear. The aim of this study is to familiarize clinicians with this uncommon disease through disc...
  7. Postpancreatoduodenectomy Hemorrhage Treated by Combined Transcatheter Arterial Embolization and Superior Mesenteric Artery to Iliac Artery Bypass: Report of a Case.

    International surgery 100(6):1084 (2015) PMID 25588626 PMCID PMC4587511

    Postpancreatectomy hemorrhage is a potentially life-threatening complication. We report herein our experience with a 65-year-old man with locally advanced pancreatic adenocarcinoma who underwent pancreatoduodenectomy with lymphadenectomy following neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy. On postoperative ...
  8. The Effect of the Use of Synthetic Mesh Soaked in Antibiotic Solution on the Rate of Graft Infection in Ventral Hernias: A Prospective Randomized Study.

    International surgery 100(6):1040 (2015) PMID 25590831 PMCID PMC4587504

    Wound infections and seroma formations are important problems in ventral hernia repair operations using synthetic mesh grafts. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of the use of synthetic mesh soaked in vancomycin solution on the rate of graft infection. The total number of subjec...
  9. A Left-Sided Approach for Resection of Hepatic Caudate Lobe Hemangioma: Two Case Reports and a Literature Review.

    International surgery 100(6):1054 (2015) PMID 26414827 PMCID PMC4587506

    Resection of the hemangioma located in the caudate lobe is a major challenge in current liver surgery. This study aimed to present our surgical technique for this condition. Two consecutive patients with symptomatic hepatic hemangioma undergoing caudate lobectomy were investigated retrospectivel...
  10. Pneumoretroperitoneum and Pneumomediastinum Revealing a Left Colon Perforation.

    International surgery 100(6):984 (2015) PMID 26414818 PMCID PMC4587527

    Left colon perforation usually occurs in complicated diverticulitis or cancer. The most frequent signs are intraperitoneal abscess or peritonitis. In cases of retroperitoneal colonic perforation, diagnosis may be difficult. A 59-year-old woman presented with left thigh pain and with abdominal di...
