  • A Retrospective Comparison Study of Ultrasonography and Computed Tomography Scan in Diagnosis of Acute Appendicitis in the Pediatric Population

    Ultrasonography (US) has largely become the primary diagnostic imaging modality for the diagnosis of acute appendicitis (AA) in pediatric patients. The purpose of this study was to determine and compare the diagnostic accuracy of helical computed tomography (CT) scans and graded compression US for the diagnosis of AA in the pediatric population.

  • Gallbladder Torsion: A Rare Diagnostic Challenge

    Gallbladder torsion is a rare cause of acute abdominal pain and can be a diagnostic challenge for the general surgeon. We herein present a case of an 81-year-old man who presented with right-sided abdominal pain and signs of intra-abdominal infection.

  • First Described Case of Gastric Volvulus Following Open Cholecystectomy

    Gastric volvulus is a rare entity with the potential to become a surgical emergency if vital vascular supply is compromised. We present a case of a patient who underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy converted to open; and after multiple admissions for intractable vomiting, she was found to have a secondary gastric volvulus during subsequent exploratory laparotomy.

  • Colonic Perforation Associated with Necrotizing Fasciitis in a Patient Receiving Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor (Pazopanib) for Recurrent Retroperitoneal Renal Cell Carcinoma

    Pazopanib, under the trade name of votrient, is a potent tyrosine-kinase growth factor receptor inhibitor used in the treatment of late-stage kidney cancer and soft tissue sarcoma. Rarely this drug has been associated with gastrointestinal perforations; however, prior studies have not shown an association with necrotizing fasciitis.

  • Maxillofacial Fractures: A Three-Year Survey

    Maxillofacial fractures constitute a substantial proportion of trauma globally. The main causes worldwide are road traffic accidents (RTAs), falls, assaults, sports, firearm injuries and industrial trauma. The highest incidence is commonly seen in the young age group with majority being male.

Predicting the Effective Dose of 5-Aminolevulinic Acid to Protect Humans From Renal Ischemia-Reperfusion Injury: A Study in Micro Miniature Pigs
In rodent models, 5-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA) was shown to prevent renal ischemia-reperfusion injury, but the data did not allow estimation of the human equivalent dose (HED). Therefore, this study evaluated the renal effects of 5-ALA and estimated the HED in micro miniature pigs, which have a metabolism closer to that of humans. Full Text

A Rare Case of Anterior Chamber SF6 Gas as a Complication of Pneumatic Retinopexy

Pneumatic retinopexy is a surgical option for the treatment of retinal detachment. Although it is a generally safe procedure, it can be associated with a number of complications. We report a case of a 52-year-old man with a history of penetrating keratoplasty for keratoconus who underwent sulfur hexafluoride pneumatic retinopexy for a left acute rhegmatogenous macula-on retinal detachment.

Treatment of Complex Extraperitoneal Appendiceal Abscesses Using a Single-Stage Laparoscopic Transabdominal Pre-Peritoneal Approach: A Description of Technique and Perioperative Care
Herein, we present a clinical case with extensive extraperitoneal collections secondary to misdiagnosed appendicitis, which was treated using a single-stage laparoscopic transabdominal pre-peritoneal (TAPP) approach, bypassing the need for additional interventional radiology procedures or open surgeries, which are the most commonly used approaches in similar cases.
