Open Partial Cystectomy of Intramural Bladder Leiomyoma With Unfavorable Position: A Rare Case Report.

Cureus 2021 Jan 28;13(1):e12965. Epub 2021 Jan 28.

Urology, Umm Al-Qura University, Makkah, SAU.

Benign tumor of the bladder (Leiomyoma) is a rare condition representing less than 0.5% of all bladder tumors. A 50-year-old female presented with asymptomatic hematuria for three months. Abdomen and pelvic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed a large intraluminal mass originating from the submucosal layer of the left anterolateral wall of the urinary bladder. An ultrasound-guided biopsy was performed, and a histopathological examination showed a spindle cell tumor. Cystoscopy revealed a massive indentation in the left posterolateral site of the urinary bladder extending to the bladder's dome. The patient underwent open partial cystectomy. At the follow-up, the patient was evaluated, and there was no hematuria or other complaints. Open partial cystectomy is the treatment of choice in an intramural tumor with an unfavorable position and difficulty in recognition.

Patient awareness about the indications and complications of sleeve gastrectomy.

J Family Med Prim Care 2020 Jan 28;9(1):321-326. Epub 2020 Jan 28.

Professor and Consultant Family Medicine, Department of Family and Community Medicine, King Saud University, College of Medicine, King Saud University Medical City, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Objectives: To assess patients' awareness of the indications and complications of sleeve gastrectomy in King Khalid University Hospital, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Methods: The cross-sectional study conducted from December 2017 to May 2018 in KKUH, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia included all patients aged 18 years and older. Data collection was conducted through self-administered questionnaires. Chi-square test was performed to determine the significant differences between variables. A value of < 0.05 was considered statistically significant.

Result: Of 480 participants, 247 (51.5%) of them were male. The educational level of most was bachelor's degree (253; 52.7%). Most of the participants (326; 67.9%) are not aware about BMI. However, 80 (16.7%) participants knew the true answer to obese BMI. Of the total participants, 283 (59.0%) did not knew about sleeve gastrectomy indications; however, 311 (64.8%) of the participants had heard about the complications of sleeve gastrectomy. All these results are correlated with the educational level of the participants.

Conclusion: Our study shows a lack of awareness of sleeve gastrectomy indications and complications among study population. We need to increase public awareness about sleeve gastrectomy indications and complication by proper scientific health education in the community.

Comparing the effectiveness of ropivacaine 0.5% versus ropivacaine 0.2% for transabdominis plane block in providing postoperative analgesia after appendectomy.

Acta Anaesthesiol Taiwan 2014 Jun 18;52(2):49-53. Epub 2014 Jun 18.

Department of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Medical Centre, Bandar Tun Razak, Cheras, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Objective: The basis for the transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block involves infiltration of a local anesthetic into the neurofascial plane between the internal oblique and the transversus abdominis muscles, causing a regional block that spreads between the L1 and T10 dermatomes. Thus, the TAP block is said to be suitable for lower abdominal surgery. This study was designed to compare the analgesic efficacy of two different concentrations of ropivacaine for TAP block in patients undergoing appendectomy.

Methods: Fifty-six patients with American Society of Anesthesiologists physical status I or II, aged 18 years and above, undergoing appendectomy were recruited in this prospective, randomized, double-blind study. They were divided into two groups: Group A patients who received 0.5 mL/kg of ropivacaine 0.5% and Group B patients who received 0.5 mL/kg of ropivacaine 0.2% via TAP block under ultrasound guidance. Postoperative pain was assessed using the visual analog scale upon arrival at the recovery room in the operating theatre, just prior to being discharged to the ward, and at 6 hours, 12 hours, 18 hours, and 24 hours postoperatively to compare the effectiveness of analgesia.

Results: Intraoperatively, patients in Group B required a significantly greater amount of additional intravenous fentanyl than those in Group A. There were no significant statistical differences in pain scores at rest and on movement at all assessment times as well as in the dose of 24-hour intravenous morphine consumption given via patient-controlled analgesia postoperatively between the two groups.

Conclusion: The effectiveness of two different concentrations of ropivacaine (0.5% versus 0.2%) given via TAP block was comparable in providing postoperative analgesia for patients undergoing appendectomy.
