  • The Effects of Cisplatin on Gastrostomy Site Healing

    Gastrostomy tube placement is sometimes necessary during chemoradiation for head and neck cancer (HNC), but it is associated with worse swallowing outcomes. Despite best efforts, the need for gastrostomy cannot be perfectly predicted, and some patients develop the need for gastrostomy while undergoing chemotherapy.

  • An Unusual Case of Biliary Cystadenoma

    Biliary cystadenomas (BCAs) are rare, benign, tumors associated with liver parenchyma, and infrequently, the extrahepatic bile ducts. There is potential for malignant transformation, and as such, complete resection is crucial.

  • Juvenile Atypical Ductal Hyperplasia: A Case Report

    Breast masses, benign and malignant, are extremely common in women. Benign breast masses have a variety of risk factors and are usually most common in women aged 30 - 40 years. Although much research has been conducted on benign breast disease and breast cancer in adult women, there remains a paucity of data on breast masses in adolescent women.

  • Complex de Garengeotís Hernia With a Bladder Diverticulum

    De Garengeotís hernia is a type of femoral hernia that also contains the appendix. It is a rare phenomenon and is diagnosed usually intraoperatively, during surgery aimed at reducing and repairing the symptomatic femoral hernia. In some cases the development of appendicitis can further complicate the clinical presentation.

In this article we discuss the utility of intra-arterial vasopressin infusion in controlling PPH that is not amenable to more traditional methods of endoscopic or interventional radiology (IR) interventions.
