We report a case of accidentally ingested toothpick with successful endoscopic removal in a case of a 24year old male who presented for open access endoscopy with complaint of abdominal pain.

Endoscopic removal was done using a Caesar grasping forceps (CGF-1-240). No complication was reported during and after the procedure. Ingested toothpick should be managed as an emergency in all cases and should be considered an important differential diagnosis in clients with complaint of a...

It preserve the physiology of the anal channel and to reconstruct the correct topographic relationship between anal derma, anal-rectal mucosa, hemorrhoidal plexus and sphincter apparatus .

The aim of this study was to present the clinical outcomes of carotid artery stent application without a cerebral embolism protective device. MATERIAL AND METHOD: A retrospective examination was made of a total of 171 patients applied with a stent between 2014 and 2017. The patients included in the st...

Gastrointestinal diseases related acromegaly such as colon cancers, adenomatous polyps, and dolichocolon are much less known. We aimed to present a case of complete colonic volvulus in a patient with acromegaly. A 60-year-old male patient presented with the complaints of inability to pass gas or stool, worsening distension, and pain for one week. The clinical e...
