  • Comparative Analysis of Anatomy Following Intraoperative Cholangiograms in Elective Laparoscopic Cholecystectomies

    The importance of understanding the anatomy of the biliary system variants is essential to all surgical procedures, which can minimize surgical errors and common bile duct (CBD) injuries.

  • Non-Communicating Bronchial Cyst Presenting as Cystic Thyroid Nodule

    IBronchial cysts are congenital sacs that result from developmental anomaly of the primitive foregut. They are mainly encountered in the mediastinum, and cervical presentation is a rarity.

  • The Value of Doppler Venous Pressure Index in Chronic Venous Disease of the Lower Limbs

    The diagnostic evaluation of chronic venous disease (CVD) of the lower limbs (LLs) is mainly based on duplex ultrasound (DUS). Invasive venous pressure measurements (VPMs) are seldom performed in specialized centers with still controversial results.

Featured Article

A Comparative Study of Polydioxanone and Nylon for Abdominal Wall Closure With Interrupted Figure of Eight in Peritonitis Cases
In emergency and elective settings, some surgeons prefer continuous or interrupted closure of abdominal fascia, because in a continuous suturing, cutting out of even a single bite of tissue leads to opening of the entire wound and high risk of burst abdomen, whereas in interrupted method, they found much lower risk of burst abdomen. The aim is to assess the complication rate with the same closure technique between two different sutures. The best suture is one that maintains tensile strength throughout the healing process with good tissue approximation and less wound infection, is well tolerated by patient and is technically simple and expedient.
