Authors: Morris AL, Colbourne T, Kirkpatrick I, Banerji V Abstract Nontraumatic chylous pleural effusions (chylothorax) and pericardial effusions (chylopericardium) are rare. They can, however, accompany intrathoracic malignancies and, most commonly, lymphomas. An association of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (cll) with chylopericardium has rarely been reported. A 68-year-old woman with cll, previously treated with single-agent fludarabine in the community, developed pleuritic chest pain and a new pericardial effusion. Computed tomography (ct) imaging of her chest revealed a large pericardial effusion with progressiv...

ConclusionMesenteric cysts represent a rare cause of intra-abdominal mass. Owing to low prevalence, literature is limited as is guidance on management. Careful pre-operative planning is essential so as to avoid operative complications. Imaging such as USS is of great importance; however Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) may be of more benefit, owing to the complex anatomical relations within which mesenteric cysts can present. Surgical excision is widely reported as the surgical treatment of choice for symptomatic cysts

When this is also associated with an extra-articular deformity, this also must be compensated or corrected. In this scenario, it is essential to achieve an optimal mechanical situation by restoring the anatomical and mechanical limb axes and an adequate soft-tissue balance. These premises are necessary to ...

Techniques have been developed to minimize the risk of these complications, including filling the defects with autologous bone fragments and augmenting with biologic agents. We have developed a technique that uses a graft collection device to collect the autologous bone graft generated during surgery. This graft augments the larger bon...
