    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...
  2. Renal endometriosis tends to be misdiagnosed as renal tumor: a rare case report.

    International surgery 100(2):376 (2015) PMID 25692445

    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...
  3. Manual Replacement of Double J Stent Without Fluoroscopy (Double j stent replacement).

    International surgery 100(2):381 (2015) PMID 25692446

    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...
  4. Intramuscular atypical lipomatous tumor/well-differentiated liposarcoma of the pectoralis major masquerading as a breast tumor: management a...

    International surgery 100(2):194 (2015) PMID 25692417

    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...
  5. A giant lymphatic cyst of the adrenal gland: report of a rare case and review of the literature.

    International surgery 100(1):2 (2015) PMID 25594633 PMCID PMC4301289

    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...
  6. Role of chemotherapeutic agents in the management of cystic echinococcosis.

    International surgery 100(1):112 (2015) PMID 25594649 PMCID PMC4301274

    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...
  7. The management of varicose veins.

    International surgery 100(1):185 (2015) PMID 25594661 PMCID PMC4301287

    This study aimed to review the current management modalities for varicose veins. There are a variety of management modalities for varicose veins. The outcomes of the treatment of varicose veins are different. The papers on the management of varicose veins were reviewed and the postoperative complica...
  8. Intrahepatic biliary dilatation caused by a small simple hepatic cyst: report of a case.

    International surgery 99(6):753 (2014) PMID 25437583 PMCID PMC4254236

    We present a case of biliary dilatation caused by a simple cyst with a 4-cm diameter. The patient was a 75-year-old woman referred to our hospital for evaluation of a cystic tumor associated with peripheral biliary duct dilatation in the left segment of the liver. Computed tomography and magnetic re...
  9. Implantation of nerve stump inside a vein and a muscle: comparing neuroma formation in rat.

    International surgery 99(6):807 (2014) PMID 25437591 PMCID PMC4254244

    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...
  10. Waterjet dissection for partial nephrectomy without hilar clamping in a porcine model.

    International surgery 99(5):677 (2014) PMID 25216442 PMCID PMC4253945

    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...
