  1. Pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis: an unusual cause of intestinal ischemia and pneumoperitoneum.

    International surgery 100(2):221 (2015) PMID 25692421 PMCID PMC4337433

    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...
  2. Effect of RET c.2307T>G Polymorphism on the Outcomes of Posterior Sagittal Neurectomy for Hirschsprung Disease Procedure in Indonesian Popul...

    International surgery 99(6):802 (2014) PMID 25437590 PMCID PMC4254243

    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...
  3. Carcinoma cecum presenting as right gluteal abscess through inferior lumbar triangle pathway-report of a rare case.

    International surgery 99(4):371 (2014) PMID 25058767 PMCID PMC4114363

    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...
  4. An extraordinary case of axillary contracture: trapped healthy skin and its adnexes under contracted scar.

    International surgery 99(4):442 (2014) PMID 25058781 PMCID PMC4114377

    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...
  5. Prebending of a titanium elastic intramedullary nail in the treatment of distal radius fractures in children.

    International surgery 99(3):269 (2014) PMID 24833151 PMCID PMC4027912

    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...
  6. Entering 2014.

    International surgery 99(1):1 (2014) PMID 24444260 PMCID PMC3897333

  7. Gastric metastasis from renal cell carcinoma with gastrointestinal bleeding: a case report and review of the literature.

    International surgery 99(1):86 (2014) PMID 24444276 PMCID PMC3897349

    A 61-year-old man presented to our hospital with hypercalcemia and elevated C reactive protein (CRP). Evaluation revealed renal cell carcinoma (RCC) with metastasis to lung, bone, and brain. He underwent partial resection of the right kidney and a left nephrectomy. Histopathologic findings of resect...
  8. Hepatic inflammatory pseudotumor with elevated serum CA19-9 level mimicking liver metastasis from rectal cancer: report of a case.

    International surgery 98(4):324 (2013) PMID 24229018 PMCID PMC3829058

    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...
  9. Routine histopathologic examination of appendectomy specimens: retrospective analysis of 1255 patients.

    International surgery 98(4):354 (2013) PMID 24229023 PMCID PMC3829063

    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...
  10. Tumor compression-induced portal obstruction and selective transarterial chemoembolization increase functional liver volume in the unobstruc...

    International surgery 98(4):388 (2013) PMID 24229029 PMCID PMC3829069

    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...
