Acute Appendicitis Involving a De Garengeot Hernia

We present a case of appendicitis within a De Garengeot hernia. The patient presented to the emergency department with 4 days of worsening abdominal pain. Computed tomography examination revealed an inflamed appendix within a femoral hernia. The patient underwent appendectomy and repair of the femoral defect. Pathological examination was consistent with acute appendicitis. De Garengeot hernia is a rare phenomenon, with less than 5% of femoral hernias containing the appendix and 0.08% to 0.13% containing an incarcerated acute appendicitis.

CONCLUSIONS: This study suggests that MTC is a more immunologically active tumor that has been previously reported. Patients with advanced MTC should be screened for targetable antigens and immune checkpoints to determine their eligibility for current clinical trials. Additional studies are necessary to fully characterize the antigenic potential of MTC and may encourage the development of adoptive T cells therapies for this rare tumor.

The influence of the α/β ratio on treatment time iso-effect relationships in the central nervous system. Int J Radiat Biol. 2020 Apr 03;:1-25 Authors: Jones B, Klinge T, Hopewell JW Abstract Purpose: To investigate the influence of changes in α/β ratio (range 1.5-3 Gy) on iso-effective doses, with varying treatment time, in spinal cord and central nervous system tissues with comparable radio-sensitivity. It is important to establish if an α/β ratio of 2 Gy, the accepted norm for neuro-oncology iso-effect estimations, can be used.Methods: The rat spinal cor...

I'm a current fellow scheduled to graduate in July. After that, I'm joining a private practice located>1000 miles away from where I'm training. Until the pandemic hit, the plan was to fly out there next month to start looking for housing. In addition to the inherent risk of travel right now, my hospital just implemented a policy that if you leave the state you have to self-quarantine for 2 weeks (and they count that as vacation time). Not sure what I'm going to do to find housing in time... Finding housing during pandemic

Conclusion There is a paucity of reports describing simultaneous appendicitis and cecal perforation within an Amyand's hernia. In our case, ileocecectomy and Bassini hernia repair with close follow-up led to a favorable outcome.

CONCLUSION Full preoperative workup for a femoral hernia often fails to diagnose the presence of the Appendix within the hernia. It is important to have a high clinical suspicion for a de Garengeot’s hernia in patients with incarcerated or strangulated right femoral hernias.

CONCLUSION Although rare, the finding of a strangulated appendix within a femoral hernia represents a challenge. Here we present a case that may guide the surgeon who faces a similar case in the future.
