Gastric duplication cyst fistulized with the colon in an adult: A case report
In this study, we present the case of a 36 ‐year‐old male patient with moderate mental retardation who presented with 10 months history of progressive abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and important weight loss. Clinical assessment and radiological investigations demonstrated the presence of non‐communicating gastric duplication cyst inserted on the greater curvature of the antrum and fistulized into the transverse colon. At laparotomy, the cyst was completely excised and the colon containing the fistula was resected with colo‐colonic anastomosis. Pathology confirmed gastric duplication and demonstrated that...

The fibrous sheath of tunnelled central venous catheters: A simple and reliable access for revision
ConclusionsThe fibrous sheath of tunnelled CVCs is a reliable access for CVC re ‐insertion. This helps to preserve the same venous access site for repeated revision of CVCs. This is extremely important in those children who depend on long‐term CVC usage. (Source: Surgical Practice)

Prevention of Postoperative Abdominal Adhesions Using Systemic Enoxaparin and Local Diclofenac. An Experimental Study
The objective of this study was to test the potential benefits of the use of subcutaneous enoxaparin plus intraperitoneal diclofenac in a porcine model.Material and MethodsUsing 32 hybrid female pigs, surgical adhesions were induced by open conventional splenectomy. The animals were divided into 4 groups: I) control, irrigation with saline solution; II) subcutaneous Enoxaparine was applied, III) intraperitoneal Diclofenac and IV) Combination of both.ResultsBy far, the greater degree of formation of abdominal adhesions occurs in the non ‐treated control group I (p

Jejunogastric intussusception after distal gastrectomy with Billroth II reconstruction
We present a rare case of intussusception of efferent jejunum through gastrojejunostomy in a patient who underwent distal gastrectomy with Billroth II reconstruction. Revision total gastrectomy was performed successfully. High index of suspicion and early diagnosis is crucial as delayed intervention can lead to a mortality rate of 50%. (Source: Surgical Practice)

Risk stratification for cardiac surgery: Comparison in a Hong Kong population
AimRisk stratification is an important tool in preoperative decision ‐making, counseling, informed consent and quality improvement. The European System for Cardiac Operative Risk Evaluation (logistic EuroSCORE) and EuroSCORE II were designed for the assessment of surgical risk. However, there are significant geographical and demographic differences between European and Hong Kong patients. The Queen Mary Hospital (QMH) risk score is a risk model designed to predict in‐hospital mortality for patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and valve surgery based on local data. In the present study, we compared...

Bronchogenic cyst of the stomach treated by surgical resection
Bronchogenic cysts are congenital cystic lesions caused by abnormal budding of the primitive tracheobronchial tube. Most bronchogenic cysts are found in the mediastinum, whereas abdominal bronchogenic cysts are rare with only 39 cases reported in the literature to date. The indication of surgical intervention is still controversial in previous studies. In the present study, we report a case of a bronchogenic cyst of the stomach in an adult who was treated by wedge excision. (Source: Surgical Practice)

Impact value of Laparoscopic Ultrasound over Triphasic Computed Tomography in the management of hepatic focal lesions
ConclusionsThe use of laparoscopic ultrasound must be regarded as a cornerstone for any contemplated hepatic surgery as it corrects staging of these lesions. In addition, the study proved that the LUS is more sensitive than TCT in detecting liver tumors especially, the smaller lesions and those on inferior and diaphragmatic surfaces of the liver.This article is protected by copyright.

Scrotal migration of a ventriculoperitoneal shunt
We report a case of scrotal migration of a ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt that presented as a hydrocele in an 18 ‐month‐old boy. The patient had a history of congenital hydrocephalus secondary to aqueductal stenosis requiring VP shunting at 1 month of age. He subsequently presented with painless progressive right scrotal swelling for 12 months with the distal segment of the shunt's peritoneal catheter palpable within the scrotum, which was confirmed by X‐ray imaging. Groin exploration for catheter removal and high ligation of the hydrocele were performed. Postoperatively, there was no recurrence of the...
