Highlights

  • Intra-Arterial Vasopressin in Post-Pancreatectomy Hemorrhage: Re-Familiarizing Current Surgical Trainees With a Once Novel Technique

    Post-pancreatectomy hemorrhage (PPH) is known to be a significant cause of post-operative morbidity. 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.

  • 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.

Risk of Dementia in Head Injuries and the Role of Altered Cerebral Blood Flow
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) and its consequences on cognitive function has been a long debated topic. In this article, we try to review available literature that tries to explain the consequences of head injury, the change in cerebral flow dynamics and other neurochemical changes that play a role in the development of neurocognitive deficits and other symptoms as a consequence of TBI.

A Case of Intracholecystic Papillary-Tubular Neoplasm
The World Health Organization (WHO) defines intracholecystic papillary neoplasms (ICPNs) as gallbladder lesions of intraductal papillary neoplasms of the bile duct (IPNB). We present a case of ICPN that was incidentally diagnosed following a cholecystectomy for cholecystitis and cholelithiasis. Full Text

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.
