Subserosal sigmoid lipoma: a case report and review of the literature.

SUBSEROSAL SIGMOID LIPOMA: A CASE REPORT AND REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE. Ethiop Med J. 2016 Apr;54(2):87-9 Authors: Zemenfes D, Semegnew Z Abstract Colonic lipoma is a rare non-epithelial mesenchymal tumour which is the second most common benign tumour of the colon excluding hyper-plastic polyps. It is often small and asymptomatic but may become symptomatic and mimic malignant lesions as the size increases. This is a case report of a 68 year-old female patient who presented with lower abdominal pain, constipation and rectal bleeding of one year duration. Colonoscopy revealed a sessile tumour 40 cm from the anal verge with an inconclusive histology. After incising and removing the lipoma, the redundant mucosal fold was then resected. The patient recovered completely and was discharged on the fifth postoperative day. Keyword: Colonic lipoma , subserosal lipomas. PMID: 27476229 [PubMed - in process]

Jared Huston, MD, a trauma surgeon at Northwell Health on New York's Long Island, spoke straight to the point about the current state of treatment for hemorrhagic shock. While traumatic wounds to extremities can be treated with a tourniquet, such wounds suffered internally are often fatal unless the patient can be transported quickly to an operating room. "There are no efficacious approaches to treating noncompressible hemorrhage," Huston said. "That's really the problem. If you're injured intra-abdominally or in the chest, and you're not brought somewhere where a trauma surgeon can operate on you and stop t...

We examined low risk (LR) patients admitted to our chest pain unit (CPU) with negative cardiac injury markers, normal electrocardiogram, and clinical stability. We hypothesized that there is a sub-group of intermediate risk (IR) patients within the larger LR population. Methods: Criteria for IR were the aforementioned 3 indicators of LR and ≥1 of the following: (1) known coronary artery disease (CAD), (2) men ≥45 yo, women ≥55 yo, and (3) ≥3 cardiac risk factors. We compared patient characteristics, use of pre-discharge testing (PDT), and major adverse cardiac events (MACE). Results: IR patients numbered ...
