  • Complex de Garengeot’s Hernia With a Bladder Diverticulum

    De Garengeot’s 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.

  • 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.

Surgical Management of Duodenal Perforation in a Patient With Gardner Syndrome and Abdominal Wall Reconstruction
Duodenal perforation is a rare complication of esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) and may be caused by direct injury from the endoscope during the procedure. This complication has a relatively high mortality rate but can be reliably managed with surgical repair. Full Text
