Authors: Wang K, Shang F, Jian FZ, Wu H Abstract To evaluate the outcomes of single-stage surgical treatment for spinal deformity and coexisting intraspinal pathologies, 12 patients who underwent single-stage surgical treatment for spinal deformity and co-existing intraspinal abnormalities between October 2016 and January 2017 were enrolled in the present study. Treatment for intraspinal abnormalities, posterior correction, osteotomy and internal fixation were performed simultaneously. The clinical and radiological outcomes, surgical details, complications and postoperative outcomes were evaluated. The mean fusion ...
Authors: Gumus S, Yalav O, Erdogan O, Teke Z Abstract A giant colonic lipoma causing colo-colonic intussusception is extremely rare in adults. A 35-year-old woman visited our emergency room with abdominal pain, abdominal distension, nausea and vomiting. Physical examination showed a painful distended abdomen. Abdominal computed tomography revealed that there was a soft-tissue mass with a fat density of approximately 6 cm in diameter in the distal part of the transverse colon. Since the clinical presentation was that of a mechanical ileus, a laparotomy was performed. An intussusception was detected in the transvers ...
Conclusion: Parapharyngeal lipomas are very rare, and difficult to diagnose before they turn out symptomatic. The primary treatment approach in tumors of the parapharyngeal area is surgery and the surgical approach should be chosen according to the anatomical location of the lesion.
Introduction: In November 2019 the Royal College of Radiologists (RCR) suggested that a higher age cut-off of 30 years, as opposed to 25, may be appropriate in assessment of a lump when a fibroadenoma, lipoma or hamartoma is suspected, and a needle biopsy may not be required. We assessed whether this change in practice could be safely implemented, supported by local data and if we could adopt this in a multi-ethnic inner-city population.

Abstract CLINICAL ISSUE: Acoustic neuromas in adults are the most common infratentorial tumors that originate from the Schwann's cells of the vestibular part of the eighth cranial nerve and are clinically noticeable through neurological deficits, such as unilateral hypoacusis, tinnitus, dizziness and unilateral facial nerve palsy. Due to the widespread use of computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), acoustic neuromas can now be diagnosed with a high rate of sensitivity and specificity; however, there are a number of possible differential diagnoses, such as meningioma, epidermoid and...

CONCLUSION Hairline incision using a loupe should be considered as a first-line treatment in the removal of forehead lipomas, because it enables complete removal of lipoma with few complications and minimal scarring. Validation of our treatment algorithm requires further exploration.
