Pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis: an unusual cause of intestinal ischemia and pneumoperitoneum.
We present a case of PCI in a 58-year-old man affected by peritoneal free air with multidetector computed tomography imaging findings. We performed the plain film of the abdomen, and MDCT studies that showed numerous, diffuse, bubble-like intramural gas collections into the jejunum, ileum, and colon...
Effect of RET c.2307T>G Polymorphism on the Outcomes of Posterior Sagittal Neurectomy for Hirschsprung Disease Procedure in Indonesian Popul...
We investigated the effect of RET c.2307T>G polymorphism on the outcomes of posterior sagittal neurectomy for Hirschsprung disease (PSNHD) procedure in Indonesia. Hirschsprung disease (HSCR) is a neurocristopathy characterized by absence of enteric ganglia along variable lengths of the intestine in...
Carcinoma cecum presenting as right gluteal abscess through inferior lumbar triangle pathway-report of a rare case.
Abstract Gluteal abscess commonly follows intramuscular injections with contaminated needles. Carcinoma cecum is known to present with pericolic abscess due to microperforations and may rupture intraperitoneally. Gluteal abscess secondary to perforated carcinoma cecum with pericolic abscess is extre...
An extraordinary case of axillary contracture: trapped healthy skin and its adnexes under contracted scar.
Abstract Although striking improvements have been achieved in overall management of burn injury, postburn contractures are still an ongoing challenge to burn surgeons. Axillary adduction contracture is one of the most common types of these disabling postburn complications that usually result from su...
Prebending of a titanium elastic intramedullary nail in the treatment of distal radius fractures in children.
Our study showed the treatment of distal radius diaphyseal metaphyseal junction fractures by prebent intramedullary nail could make up for the deficiency of Kirschner wires and steel plates and keep the fracture stable. Fracture type and the anatomical features of the distal radius were associated w...
Hepatic inflammatory pseudotumor with elevated serum CA19-9 level mimicking liver metastasis from rectal cancer: report of a case.
We herein report a case of IPT of the liver with marked elevation of carbohydrate antigen 19-9 (CA19-9). A 72-year-old woman, who underwent low anterior resection for rectal cancer, had low-grade fever and epigastric pain. The patient has well-controlled idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) wit...
Routine histopathologic examination of appendectomy specimens: retrospective analysis of 1255 patients.
We retrospectively analyzed the demographic and histopathologic data of 1255 patients (712 males, 543 females; age range, 17-85 years) who underwent appendectomy to treat an initial diagnosis of acute appendicitis. Patients who underwent incidental appendectomy during other surgeries were excluded f...
Tumor compression-induced portal obstruction and selective transarterial chemoembolization increase functional liver volume in the unobstruc...
We initially planned a right trisectionectomy as curative hepatectomy, the percentage of future remnant liver volume (%RLV) and the percentage of functional liver volume (%RFLV) were 31.2% and 41.3%, respectively. Because %RFLV showed marginal tolerability for curative hepatectomy and %RLV was very...
Incisional intercostal hernia with prolapse of the colon after right partial nephrectomy.
We used a median skin incision and patched a polyester mesh coated with absorbent collagen. The patient had an uneventful postoperative course, with no pain for 6 months postoperatively. Transdiaphragmatic intercostal hernias with abdominal contents commonly develop after trauma or thoracic surgery....
Hemoptysis and acute respiratory syndrome (ARDS) as delayed-type hypersensitivity after FOLFOX4 plus bevacizumab treatment.
We should pay special attention to delayed-type hypersensitivity in advanced colorectal cancer patients undergoing FOLFOX treatment....
