  • Intra-Vascular Occlusion of the Aorta for Massive Pelvic Trauma: A New Application

    Globally, trauma remains the leading cause of morbidity and mortality for all age groups with uncontrolled hemorrhage as the most common form of preventable death in the trauma setting. Specifically, non-compressible torso hemorrhage in trauma patients is known to have high mortality rates.

  • 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.

  • Laparoscopic Repair of an Abdominal Intercostal Hernia Following Blunt Trauma

    An abdominal intercostal hernia under an intact diaphragm is a rare phenomenon in which abdominal contents enter the intercostal space directly from the peritoneum through an acquired defect.

A Rare Presentation of Cecal Diverticulitis in a Patient With Cystic Fibrosis

Cecal diverticulitis (CD) is a rarely seen and studied condition in American medicine. CD presents in a manner that is almost clinically indistinguishable from acute appendicitis. Both CD and acute appendicitis present with exceedingly similar symptoms including, but not limited to, right lower quadrant (RLQ) pain, fever, and vomiting. The diagnosis of CD is usually made during an operation and is seldom caught preoperatively. Full Text

Effect of Early Endoscopic Evaluation With Balloon Dilatation on Preventing Esophagojejunal Strictures Following Total Gastrectomy for Gastric Cancer
The present study aims to evaluate the efficacy of early endoscopic evaluation with balloon dilatation performed during non-symptomatic post-operative period with the intent of preventing benign post-operative esophagojejunal anastomotic strictures in patients who receive total gastrectomy for gastric cancer.
