  • 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.

  • Acute Appendicitis Due to Metastasis of Prostatic Adenocarcinoma

    Acute appendicitis due to metastasis of prostatic carcinoma is very rare, and only five cases of metastasis of prostatic carcinoma are described in the literature.

The Macintosh Laryngoscope: the Mechanism of Laryngeal Exposure and the Optimal Maneuver
The Macintosh laryngoscope enables safer and easy intubation. However, the mechanism of laryngeal exposure remains unclear. I hypothesized that extension of the hyoepiglottic ligament contributes to elevation of the epiglottis, and laryngoscope maneuvers that pull the hyoid bone rostrally will effectively elevate the epiglottis and expose the glottides.

A Mesothelial Cyst Presenting as Inguinal Mass: Two Case Reports and Literature Review

The differential diagnosis of inguinal mass such as hernia, hydrocele, spermatocele, undescended testes, spermatic cord cyst, lymphangioma, lymphadenopathy, and abscess varies. Mesothelial cysts of inguinal area are extremely rare. We report the cases of a 66-year-old woman with a slowly enlarging mass in the left groin for several years, and a 58-year-old man with a 7-day history of right groin pain and swelling. Full Text

Focused Abdominal Computed Tomography in Clinically Suspected Adolescent Acute Appendicitis
Acute appendicitis (AA) is one of the most common causes of acute non-traumatic abdominal pain. The use of computed tomography (CT) in facilitating the diagnosis of AA in patients above the age of 50 where right iliac fossa (RIF) pain may represent a wide spectrum of differentials is well established. However, few studies have explored the value of low radiation, unenhanced focused abdominal computed tomography (FACT) in adolescent patients where AA represents the main differential for RIF pain.
