Aggressive angiomyxoma of the pelvis presenting as an obturator hernia.

CONCLUSIONS: Angiomyxoma is a rare, benign and locally aggressive tumor, which can infiltrate locally and present unusually as perineal hernia. Due to its rarity and lack of specific diagnostic requirements, it's difficult to diagnose preoperatively KEY WORDS: Angiomyxoma, Obturator hernia, Pelvic mass. PMID: 31723050 [PubMed - in process]

POSTOPERATIVE PAIN AND STRESS RESPONSE: DOES CHILD'S GENDER HAVE AN INFLUENCE? Acta Clin Croat. 2019 Jun;58(2):274-280 Authors: Karišik M, Gligorović Barhanović N, Vulović T, Simić D Abstract Surgical procedure causes multisystem stress response reactions. The aim of this study was to assess whether gender has an impact on the level of neuroendocrine response to surgical stress and intensity of postoperative pain in children undergoing inguinal hernia repair surgery, as well as satisfaction of their parents with preoperative and postoperative care. The study included 60 children aged 3-6 yea...

We present a case of a 57-year-old white female with a left upper thigh mass located at the previous surgical site of the resection of a 15 cm, 505-glipoma 10 years ago. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a 1.7 × 3.1 × 2.9 cm soft tissue mass within the subcutaneous adipose tissues of her left upper thigh at the site of previous lipoma resection. No muscle or bone invasion was identified. The clinical impression was lipoma versus liposarcoma. The mass was surgically removed, and gross examination showed a tan-pink, well-demarcated soft mass with scalloped edges noted within the...

Conclusions: Colorectal stricture had the highest risk for malignant transformation. Earlier initiation of colonoscopic surveillance in UC patients with risk factors for stricture should be considered to prevent stricture formation and further malignant transformation.

Authors: Soh H, Chun J, Hong SW, Park S, Lee YB, Lee HJ, Cho EJ, Lee JH, Yu SJ, Im JP, Kim YJ, Kim JS, Yoon JH Abstract Background/Aims: The risk for colonoscopic postpolypectomy bleeding (PPB) in patients with chronic liver disease (CLD) remains unclear. We determined the incidence and risk factors for colonoscopic PPB in patients with CLD, especially those with liver cirrhosis. Methods: We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of patients with CLD who underwent colonoscopic polypectomy at Seoul National University Hospital between 2011 and 2014. The study endpoints were immediate and delayed PPB. R...

In this study, we summarized 653 PTC patients who underwent thyroidectomy and central lymph node dissection with or without lateral lymph node dissection from two hospitals to investigate the pattern and risk factors of lateral lymph node metastasis (LLNM) and skip metastasis. LLNM was significantly associated tumor size> 1 cm, presence of extrathyroidal extension, tumors in the upper-lateral pole, and the number of metastatic lymph nodes in the central compartment. The frequency of skip metastasis was 22.5% (20 of 89 patients). Multivariate analyses showed tumor size ≤ 1 cm, and tumors in the upper-lateral pole were...

AbstractAll nontechnical factors were analyzed to predict nasal bacterial culture results in patients with chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS). Four hundred and ninety-six CRS patients, who underwent functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS), were enrolled. Prior to FESS, the severity of each patient ’s CRS was evaluated using a questionnaire, endoscopic examination, acoustic rhinometry, smell test, saccharine transit test, and CT scan. Nasal bacterial cultures were collected from both middle meati using a cotton-tipped stick. Our results showed that the symptom severity complained of by patie nts and their loss of smell f...

AbstractThe major role of conventional ultrasonography (US) can be divided into three processes: cancer screening, differential diagnosis, and assessment of the depth of tumor invasion. As US is a simple and minimally invasive modality, it is widely used for cancer screening and health checkups. Both gallbladder (GB) polyps and thickened wall of the GB are common US findings. On the contrary, US is prone to interference from gas echoes, and its diagnostic accuracy depends on both the US technology and the ability of sonographers. It is also important to be well acquainted with characteristic artifacts and how to manage the...
