Gangrenous cholecystitis: mortality and risk factors.
As a serious complication of cholelithiasis, gangrenous cholecystitis presents greater mortality than noncomplicated cholecystitis. The aim of this study was to specify the risk factors on mortality. 107 consecutive patients who underwent surgery due to gangrenous cholecystitis between January 1997...
Renal endometriosis tends to be misdiagnosed as renal tumor: a rare case report.
We performed a radical nephrectomy for a 37-year-old woman with renal endometriosis who was preoperatively misdiagnosed as having a right renal tumor. Avoiding the misdiagnosis of renal endometriosis requires a detailed case history, especially regarding whether the cyclicity of lumbodorsal pain and...
Manual Replacement of Double J Stent Without Fluoroscopy (Double j stent replacement).
We present our experience of manual replacement of double J stent without fluoroscopy. The data from 23 female patients who underwent double J stent replacement with a total of 110 times was retrospectively analyzed. The steps of technique are as follows: take out distal end of the double J stent th...
Intramuscular atypical lipomatous tumor/well-differentiated liposarcoma of the pectoralis major masquerading as a breast tumor: management a...
We describe here a case of intramuscular ALT/WDL of the pectoralis major muscle in a female patient who presented with clinical manifestations of a rapidly growing breast tumor. Diagnostic evaluation and management of the patient are discussed along with a review of the relevant literature. We concl...
A giant lymphatic cyst of the adrenal gland: report of a rare case and review of the literature.
We were not able to make a preoperative diagnosis; therefore, the patient underwent resection of the mass by open laparotomy for therapeutic diagnosis. Intraoperatively, the mass was identified to be cystic and adhered to the left adrenal gland. It was filled with more than 2000 mL of serous brown-r...
Role of chemotherapeutic agents in the management of cystic echinococcosis.
Hydatid disease is caused by infection with the metacestode stage of Echinococcus tapeworms of the family Taeniidae. The primary carriers are dogs and wolves, and humans are accidental hosts that do not contribute to the normal life cycle of this organism. The liver is the most commonly involved org...

Implantation of nerve stump inside a vein and a muscle: comparing neuroma formation in rat.
Abstract Among many techniques independently reported to manage neuroma formation, manipulation of the nerve stump inside muscle and vein is the most advantageous technique. This study aimed to enrich the basic data of macroscopic appearance and histo-pathology regarding which technique generates le...
Waterjet dissection for partial nephrectomy without hilar clamping in a porcine model.
Abstract Hilar clamping is typically used in partial nephrectomy to control hemorrhage, which may damage the renal tissue under warm ischemia conditions. The purpose of this study was to evaluate waterjet technology in partial nephrectomy without renal hilar vascular control in a porcine model. Bila...
