ConclusionsThis study demonstrated the feasibility of total laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy combined with vascular resection and artificial vascular graft reconstruction in properly selected cases of pancreatic cancer with vein involvement after neoadjuvant chemotherapy. It is worth noting that skilled laparoscopic technicians and effective teamwork are necessities for safe completion of the procedure.
Abstract OBJECTIVES: To present the characteristics of women attending a tertiary urogynaecology pelvic floor scan clinic with mid-urethral sling complications and examine the association between 2D perineal and 3D endovaginal ultrasound and symptoms. METHODS: A cross-sectional study of all women referred to a specialist pelvic floor ultrasound clinic from October 2016 to October 2018 with mid-urethral sling complications were included. They underwent a detailed history and had a 2D perineal (BK Medical, Herlev, Denmark, Type 8802; 4.3-6 MHz) and 3D endovaginal (BK Medical, Herlev, Denmark, Type 8838; 6-12 MH...

CONCLUSIONS: Esophageal tuberculosis is rare and frequently misdiagnosed due to the lack of diagnostic signs. There needs to be a high index of clinical suspicion among patients with dysphagia or retrosternal pain. Endoscopic biopsy and endoscopic ultrasound-guided FNA can help in achieving the correct diagnosis in esophageal tuberculosis. PMID: 32881605 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
This report reiterates the importance of clinical diagnosis and radiological imaging even for the common diseases when presents in an unusual fashion. Percutaneous drainage and microbial culture with susceptibility based antibiotics are the key to its treatment. PMID: 32863358 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: ACUMs are a uterine abnormality with a distinct ultrasound appearance, which are associated with dysmenorrhoea and chronic pelvic pain. Its typical appearance on ultrasound scan could facilitate early detection and treatment. There are several treatment options ranging from simple analgesia to complete excision. Further prospective and longitudinal studies are required to study the prevalence and natural history and of this condition. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Authors: Popovici RM, Cărăuleanu A, Costea CF, Florea ID, Scripcariu DV, Mogoş RA, Cheaito A, Tănase AE, Haba RM, Grigore M Abstract The most frequent tumoral condition of the uterus is represented by uterine myoma. The diagnosis, in most cases, is established by clinical examination and ultrasound scan. Nevertheless, there are rare cases, in which the surgical findings reveal a retroperitoneal tumor instead of a uterine myoma. These could be represented by schwannomas or Castleman disease. The schwannomas are rarely malignant and arise from the Schwann cells of nerve fibers. These tumors are frequently found a...
CONCLUSION: LPAC syndrome is easy to diagnose and treat; therefore, it should no longer be overlooked. To increase its detection rate, all patients who experience recurrent biliary symptoms following an episode of acute pancreatitis should undergo an ultrasound examination performed by a radiologist with knowledge of the disease.

ConclusionIf a patient presents with epigastric pain and GERD-like symptoms, with no benefit from medical treatment, an esophageal duplication cyst must be a differential diagnosis. This can be confirmed with a CT scan and endoscopic ultrasound, with surgery being the best treatment for this disease
We report a case of acute urinary retention in an adolescent female secondary to hematocolpos. A 13-year-old female presented to the emergency department with acute urinary retention and suprapubic abdominal pain for 24 hours. She denied menstruation or sexual history. Bedside bladder ultrasound scan revealed 1.2 L of retained urine and a Foley catheter was placed. A formal renal ultrasound detected a debris-filled structure in the abdomino-pelvic cavity. Follow-up computed tomography of the abdomen and pelvis revealed an 8.5 cm × 9.3 cm × 12.1 cm mass-like structure...
