Poorly Differentiated Biliary Adenocarcinoma Leading to Boerhaave syndrome: A Case Report and Review of the Literature.

Poorly Differentiated Biliary Adenocarcinoma Leading to Boerhaave syndrome: A Case Report and Review of the Literature. Ann Clin Lab Sci. 2019 May;49(3):395-399 Authors: Murzabdillaeva A, Zhao B Abstract Boerhaave syndrome is a transmural disruption of the esophagus, due to an increase in esophageal pressure and is associated with high morbidity and mortality. There are cases reported secondary to bowel obstructions such as incarcerated hernias and gallstone ileus. Here, we describe an unusual autopsy case of Boerhaave syndrome, due to bowel obstruction secondary to biliary adenocarcinoma, which has never been reported in the literature. The patient was an 87-year old male presenting with severe chest and epigastric pain. Computed tomography showed fluid-filled esophagus, gastric distention and an ill-defined mass within the liver. Patient underwent esophagogastroduodenoscopy, which revealed esophageal rupture. Patient expired within 20 hours of admission. On autopsy, the decedent was found to have an esophageal perforation and an inferior hepatic mass, which morphologically and immunohistochemically was consistent with a biliary adenocarcinoma.

We present a case of Moyamoya disease in an infant who presented with neurological symptoms including convulsions and motor deficits. He was misdiagnosed two times and finally investigated in a tertiary hospital with brain computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging showing affected vessels with typical pattern of Moyamoya diseases in the brain. He underwent surgical intervention and scheduled for follow up.

This study investigated the interrelation between plasma D-dimer level, ILT volume, AAA size and progression.Main methodsThis was a retrospective observational study that involved 181 patients with infra-renal AAA. They were divided into small and large AAA groups according to AAA diameter. 24 of them had repeated abdominal computed tomography angiography (CTA) scan and were divided into slow-growing and fast-growing AAA groups according to the median value of AAA growth rate. Baseline and follow-up plasma D-dimer level, maximum diameter of AAA, total infra-renal aortic volume and ILT volume were analyzed.Key findingsPlasm...

Authors: Van Slambrouck J, Vlasselaers J, Devos B Abstract Peritoneal tuberculosis is a rare extrapulmonary manifestation of tuberculosis. Considering the diagnosis of peritoneal tuberculosis in a low prevalence setting can be vital for the further clinical management in selected patients.In a young male with migration background, presenting with generalised abdominal pain, computed tomography revealed ascites, omental and peritoneal thickening and enlarged mesentery lymph nodes. Computed tomography also revealed a distal ureteral calculus at the right vesico-ureteral junction. Diagnostic laparoscopy showed a nodul...

We describe a method by using combined wedge non-VBG to correct the nonunion deformity when treating scaphoid nonunion with pedicled VBG. The wedge bone graft was harvested just proximal to the 2,3 intercompartmental supraretinacular artery VBG and was used as an inlay at the volar site to correct the humpback deformity, whereas the VBG was set at the dorsal site for bone bridging and blood supply. We also present our results of 10 patients with scaphoid fracture nonunion and humpback deformity treated with this method. Bone healing was achieved and the lateral intrascaphoid angles could be improved in all the 10 patients....

Disruption to the flexor pulley system of the thumb is an infrequent but devastating injury that can lead to significant compromise in both strength and function. Acute rupture leads to pain, weakness, reduced range of motion (ROM), and potential bowstringing of the flexor tendons. Conservative treatment with a pulley ring should be considered in all patients. However, failure of conservative treatment and bowstringing of the thumb are indications for operative intervention. Reconstruction of the oblique pulley system can be performed either in situ or using a free palmaris longus graft. Care should be taken to identify th...
