SURGICEL compared with simple gauze packing in grade IV liver injury: an experimental study

This study aims to compare stereological findings in using SURGICEL vs. gauze packing in grade 4 liver lacerations in Wistar rats. In this experimental study, 20 male Wistar-albino rats weighing 250 –300 g were purchased from Shiraz University of Medical Sciences animal laboratory. At the beginning of the study, a 1-cm length and 0.5-cm depth linear laceration was made on the large lobe of the liver in all rats through laparotomy. At least one or more liver tissue samples were obtained from live rats to compare the efficacy of SURGICEL vs. gauze packing. According to our stereological results, normal liver tissue in the SURGICEL group (0.882 ± 0.146) was significantly lower than the controls (0.994 ± 0.007) (p value

ConclusionIn selected cases, endoscopic management is more cost-effective, minimally invasive, has less post-operative complications, and leads to a more expeditious recovery. Therefore, the role of therapeutic endoscopy for gastric perforations secondary to foreign bodies should always be considered.

Discussion and conclusionThe present case, initially diagnosed as enterocolitis, suddenly manifested hypovolemic shock. Close monitoring for any signs of further deterioration, as well as aggressive imaging diagnosis, enabled us to avoid delays in treatment. Early diagnosis and treatment of mesenteric hematomas are essential to prevent them from rupturing and triggering life-threatening adverse events.

ConclusionsAs far as we are aware, this is the first report of papillary squamotransitional cell carcinoma of the uterine cervix metastatic to the ovary without vaginal bleeding and with a clinically and radiologically unsuspicious cervix. Physicians should always contemplate papillary squamotransitional cell carcinoma of the uterine cervix in unclear cases with ovarian metastasis, especially if the histology indicates a transitional cancer (CK7+ and CK20−), before proceeding with treatment. More cases are needed to illuminate the clinical characteristics and categorization of papillary squamotransitional cell carcin...

Authors: Kim SH, Song S, Cho HS, Park CY Abstract A 55-year-old man was admitted to the trauma center after a car accident. Cardiac tamponade, traumatic aortic injury, and hemoperitoneum were diagnosed by ultrasonography. The trauma surgeon, cardiac surgeon, and interventional radiologist discussed the prioritization of interventions. Multi-detector computed tomography was carried out first to determine the severity and extent of the injuries, followed by exploratory sternotomy to repair a left auricle rupture. A damage control laparotomy was then performed to control mesenteric bleeding. Lastly, a descending thora...

Discussion &conclusionThe treatment strategy should be tailored to the individual patient, the clinical presentation, and the rate of progression of the tumor. The natural history of the disease is still poorly understood and there is no uniform treatment form for such tumors.
