Laparoscopic treatment of hepatic hydatid cysts. Our approach.

CONCLUSION: Laparoscopic management of hydatid cysts of the liver can be performed safely and successfully. This technique can be used in patients with unique, small sized, superficially located cysts, and also has the advantages of other abdominal laparoscopic operations. KEY WORDS: Hepatic hydatid cysts, Laparoscopic surgery. PMID: 31617852 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Consequently, the improvement of the water solubility and dissolution rate of ABZ implies a great challenge for a more efficient treatment of hydatidosis. In this context, SBA-15 and SBA-16 ordered mesoporous si...

AbstractCystic echinococcosis is a potential zoonotic helminthic disease affect a broad spectrum of mammals including humans worldwide. The economic impact of the disease interestingly requires updated gathering information on the prevalence in slaughtered animals. Accordingly, in the current study, 573 camels, 4300 sheep, and 1235 pigs were surveyed in four Egyptian municipal abattoirs. Among those, 62 (10.82%) camels, 33 (0.77%) sheep and 3 (0.24%) pigs had cystic echinococcosis in lungs, livers and spleen. The diversity of cysts revealed that positive-cystic echinococcosis animals from all species were detected in El-Ba...

Conclusion: Even though considerable progress has been made, uncertainties remain in the diagnosis and treatment ofEchinococcosis. Hence, standardized diagnostic and treatment procedures should be established with well-designed studies.Keywords:Echinococcosis, hydatid cyst, diagnosis, treatment.

ConclusionTotal humerus hydatidosis is infrequent, and there is scarce information about its treatment. The local resection plus graft and osteosynthesis conserving the bone has shown complications and recurrences. For healing, a radical procedure is necessary. Although functional results may be limited.

We present a 40-year-old woman with a history of relapsing echinococcosis who had undergone a number of surgical procedures for cyst removal (right pulmectomy, cardiac surgery and 6 subsequent brain surgeries and two gamma knife procedures) and was admitted to University Hospital for Infectious Diseases "Fran Mihaljeviæ", Zagreb, Croatia in 2014 for pre-operative medical treatment of brain hydatidosis in the right parietal region. We aimed to attain a high cyst albendazole sulphoxide (ASO) concentration in order to achieve a more pronounced protoscolex inactivation and a high serum ASO concentration (reflec...

Conclusion: The prevalence of human hydatidosis shows approximately the same range as other regions of Iran. Although due to the neighboring the Mazandaran Province reported as the highest seroprevalence of hydatidosis, we expected more rate of seropositivity. PMID: 31673262 [PubMed]

Abstract Currently, cystic echinococcosis (CE) follow-up is a serious concern among surgeons. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small, endogenous, non-coding RNAs which are present in human body fluids in a highly stable form. Recently, it is observed that Echinococcus granulosus expresses a large number of miRNAs in its developmental stages. The current study aimed at evaluating the capacity of parasitic miRNAs to serve as plasma biomarkers for hydatid cysts before and after CE surgery. Hydatidosis patients were identified using radiological and histopathological examinations. Following RNA extraction and cDNA synthesis, th...
