Acute portal vein thrombosis in mild cholecystitis. A consequence of coronavirus disease 2019 infection?

Cir Cir 2021 ;89(3):399-402

Department of General Surgery and Digestive System, Hospital QuirónSalud Sur, Alcorcón. Madrid, Spain.

La infección por el virus SARS-CoV-2 provoca, además de cuadros respiratorios graves, episodios trombóticos en múltiples localizaciones debido a una mala regulación de la respuesta inmune. Presentamos el caso de un paciente con colecistitis incipiente que desarrolló trombosis portal aguda sin ningún otro antecedente salvo haber pasado de forma asintomática una infección por COVID-19. Dado que esta complicación es extremadamente infrecuente en pacientes sin factores predisponentes ni infecciones graves, consideramos que la infección por COVID-19 pudo ser un factor desencadenante de la trombosis portal y debemos de tenerlo en cuenta de cara al manejo y tratamiento de futuros casos similares.

Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2019 infection causes, in addition to severe respiratory symptoms, thrombotic episodes in multiple locations due to dysregulation of the immune response. We present the case of a patient with incipient cholecystitis who developed acute portal thrombosis with no other antecedents except having passed an asymptomatic coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) infection. Since this complication is extremely rare in patients without predisposing factors or serious infections, we consider that COVID-19 infection could be a triggering factor for portal thrombosis and we must take it into account in the management and treatment of future similar cases.

Atraumatic splenic rupture secondary to appendicular perforation by cecal volvulus.

Cir Cir 2019 ;87(2):211-214

Servicio de Cirugía General y del Aparato Digestivo, Hospital Universitario Nuestra Señora de Candelaria, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Tenerife, España.

Atraumatic splenic rupture, an infrequent surgical emergency, constitutes a life-threatening situation. The lack of a traumatic background makes it difficult to suspect. We present a case of a 45-year-old woman, with history of bariatric surgery, referred to our emergency due to 3 weeks long abdominal and lumbar pain, in shock. Imaging diagnosis of splenic rupture, emergent surgery was performed with atypical findings and good evolution. The bibliographic review, background and surgical findings allowed to postulate causality in this unusual presentation. Despite its low frequency, this pathology involves significant mortality and must be present in the patient in shock in the emergency room.

[Crossed renal ectopia in a patient with a complicated sigma neoplasia].

Cir Cir 2017 Dec 21;85 Suppl 1:72-75. Epub 2016 Dec 21.

Servicio de Cirugía General y del Aparato Digestivo, Hospital Universitario Nuestra Señora de Candelaria, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Tenerife, España.

Background: Crossed renal ectopia is a rare pathology that is often asymptomatic. Intraoperative detection with a sigma complicated neoplasia is more infrequent and requires correct management to avoid a renal ureteral injury.

Aim: To present a case report of a patient with a sigma complicated neoplasia and a crossed renal ectopia detected incidentally.

Case Report: We present the case of a 62-year-old man that was submitted for emergency surgery for a sigma perforated neoplasm, and who presented with a previously undiagnosed left-side CRE. During surgery there was a need to insert 2-double-J stents as a guide to both ureters and to avoid any injury to them.

Discussion: Crossed renal ectopia is a rare, often asymptomatic entity, the diagnosis of which is usually incidental. In our case, the detection of a concomitant complicated neoplasm, required identification of both ureters due the anatomic doubt of its localization and to avoid them being injured. In conclusion, upon finding a casual crossed renal ectopia during an emergency surgery of sigma, we recommend the identification of the ureters to facilitate its location and to avoid any injury to the ureters.
