Ectopic Thyroid Mass Separately Present in Mediastinum and Not a Retrosternal Extension: A Report of Two Cases.

Case Rep Surg 2019 12;2019:3821767. Epub 2019 Mar 12.

Department of Surgery, The Aga Khan University Hospital, Karachi, Pakistan.

Retrosternal extension of goiter is one of the most common types of masses in the superior mediastinum. These types of goiters classically present with compressive symptoms such as dyspnea, dysphonia, dysphagia, or sleep apnea. Surgical treatment with a total thyroidectomy and complete removal of the intrathoracic portion of thyroid is the gold standard treatment. Read More

Recurrent Intestinal Obstruction after Radiation Therapy: A Case Report and Review of the Literature.

Case Rep Surg 2019 6;2019:5198958. Epub 2019 Mar 6.

Department of Surgery, New York Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital, Brooklyn, New York, USA.

Introduction: In patients who have undergone resection for rectal cancer after neoadjuvant radiotherapy, loop ileostomy is commonly performed with few serious complications. In rare cases, if this irradiated small bowel is strictured, reversal of the affected ileostomy can have dire consequences. We present a case of a 62-year-old male with recurrent intestinal obstruction after closure of his loop ileostomy. Read More

Two Cases of Periprosthetic Atypical Femoral Fractures in Patients on Long-Term Bisphosphonate Treatment.

Case Rep Surg 2019 3;2019:9845320. Epub 2019 Mar 3.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Akita University Graduate School of Medicine, 1-1-1 Hondo, Akita 010-8543, Japan.

The current definition of atypical femoral fractures (AFFs) excludes periprosthetic fractures. However, a few cases of bisphosphonates (BPs) -associated periprosthetic atypical femoral fractures (PAFFs) have been reported in the literature. Here, we report two rare cases of PAFFs that fulfilled the major criteria for AFFs in patients with prolonged use of BPs. Read More

Human Amniotic Membrane Positioning in the Surgical Treatment of Temporomandibular Joint Degenerative Disorder.

Case Rep Surg 2019 3;2019:6037191. Epub 2019 Mar 3.

School of Dentistry, Department of Neuroscience, University of Padova, Padova, Italy.

Background: Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) arthritis is a degenerative pathology that may cause pain and dysfunction. Nonsurgical therapy is the traditional treatment of TMJ diseases but if ineffective, TMJ surgery can be performed and may include arthroplasty with interposition of autograft. The encouraging results reported with the use of human amniotic membrane (HAM) in different surgical fields have highlighted its potential, but approaches providing the positioning of HAM within the intra-articular space of arthritic TMJs have never been investigated.

University of Maryland Community Medical Group, Surgical Care, 500 Cadmus Lane, Easton, MD 21601, USA.

Background: Gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) is an uncommon tumor of the GI tract usually seen in elderly patients, often difficult to diagnose because of the unspecific symptoms such as abdominal pain and fullness. Recurrent GIST may have an even more obscure clinical presentation.

Case Report: A 44-year-old female with a history of surgically treated GIST presented to the emergency room complaining of acute onset sharp RLQ pain, nausea, and vomiting. Read More

Obturator Bypass with Bovine Carotid Artery Graft: A Novel Twist to a Traditional Technique.

Case Rep Surg 2019 19;2019:2653058. Epub 2019 Feb 19.

Department of Surgery, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Pittsburgh, PA, USA.

When managing an infected groin, though rarely performed, a transobturator bypass remains an important alternative in the armament of a vascular surgeon. Autologous vein and synthetic PTFE are known conduit options for obturator bypasses, although the advantage of utilizing an autologous biological conduit when dealing with infection may not be an option for every patient. On literature review, bovine carotid grafts have been used in infrainguinal revascularizations with comparable results to autologous vein; however, no cases can be found for its use in obturator bypass thus far.

Case Rep Surg 2019 11;2019:1986084. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Kaiser Permanente, Surgical Oncology, Rockville, Maryland, USA.

Hepatic artery variations occur in about one-fourth of the population, are frequent questions on standardized surgery exams, and are often discussed on teaching rounds with an attending surgeon. Intraoperatively, it is important to be aware of possible vascular anomalies in order to prevent ligation or injury of an essential vessel. This case report describes an extremely rare vascular anomaly encountered during a pancreaticoduodenectomy (Whipple operation). Read More

Intrarectal Foreign Body Detected at CT Scanner Investigating an Abdominal Syndrome.

Department of Morphological and Functional Sciences, "Dunarea de Jos" University of Galati, Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy, Galati, Romania.

The field of general surgery offers many different pathologies, cases, and situations for which the general surgeons should be competent in diagnosis as well as treatment and management, including operative intervention. Most situations are complicated by delayed admission to the hospital due to the embarrassment of patient and inability to obtain satisfactory anamnesis. This article reviews the use of computed tomography as a problem-solving tool in the identification, localization, and presurgical planning for extracting the rectal foreign object. Read More

Infraglenoid Muscle as an Anatomic Variation of the Anterior Rotator Cuff.

Case Rep Surg 2019 10;2019:6938252. Epub 2019 Feb 10.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Asan Medical Center, University of Ulsan College of Medicine, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Case: We report a patient with osteoarthritis of the shoulder joint who underwent reverse shoulder arthroplasty and showed anatomical variation in the subscapularis muscle (SM). A variation of the rotator cuff originating from the anteroinferior aspect of the glenoid was separated from the SM by a septum and was named infraglenoid muscle (IGM).

Conclusion: We suggest that the IGM may serve as an additional dynamic stabilizer for external rotation. Read More

Endometriosis Mimicking a Cecum Mass with Complete Bowel Obstruction: An Infrequent Cause of Acute Abdomen.

Case Rep Surg 2019 31;2019:7024172. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

USFQ, School of Biological and Enviromental Sciences, Quito, Ecuador.

Endometriosis is a common entity among fertile women which unfortunately manifests through variable symptomatology. Intestinal involvement in endometriosis is quite common and can simulate several diseases such as Crohn's disease, appendicitis, tubo-ovarian abscess, or malignant tumors. Intestinal obstruction due to endometriosis is rare, and preoperative diagnosis is difficult because the signs and symptoms are nonspecific and can be easily confused. Read More
