Three years Evaluation of Retained Foreign Bodies after Surgery in Iran
Conclusion Considering the most frequent type of retained foreign bodies and also more frequent involved surgery wards besides detection methods for RFB, a mixed of preventing protocols such as regular counting of devices, post-operative X-ray with radiopaque markers and exact evaluation of surgery site should be employed to reduce the occurrence of retained foreign bodies and its complications.

Spontaneous biloma due to an intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma: An extremely rare case report with long term survival and literature review
We report the case of a 79-year-old female patient suffering from an intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma that completely obliterated the left main hepatic duct. This obstruction in intrahepatic bile flow had resulted in intraperitoneal rupture of subcapsular bile vessels (not infiltrated by the tumor) of the left liver lobe and formation of spontaneous biloma. The patient was admitted for acute abdominal pain. Computed tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) revealed the tumor and an upper abdominal fluid collection. Since the patient was hemodynamically stable and afebrile, a CT-guided percutaneous aspiration of ...

Port-site incisional hernia – A case series of 54 patients
Conclusions In Port sites of 10 mm and larger diameter fascia should be closed by suture, whereas the risk of hernia development in 5 mm trocar placements seems to be a rare complication. Port-site incisional hernia should be treated by suture or mesh repair depending on fascial defect size and the patients' risk factors regarding preexisting deseases and body mass index.

Comparison of trans-anal endoscopic operation and trans-anal excision of rectal tumors
Conclusions TEO treatment of local rectal tumors is safe and feasible and can achieve an adequate resection margin. Local recurrence was similar in both groups. However, the numbers of salvage operations and minor complications were higher in the TEO group. (Source: Annals of Medicine and Surgery)

Routine histological examination of epidermoid cysts; to send or not to send?
Conclusion There was close agreement between clinical and final histological diagnosis of epidermoid cyst. Where a characteristic, odorous, toothpaste-like material is present on transection intra-operatively, the diagnosis is confirmed and the lesion can be discarded. We argue that significant cost savings can be achieved by adopting this approach. (Source: Annals of Medicine and Surgery)
