ANALYSIS OF HISTORICAL MEDICAL RECORDS OF CALIFORNIA CONDORS ( GYMNOGYPS CALIFORNIANUS) ADMITTED FOR LEAD EXPOSURE TO THE LOS ANGELES ZOO AND BOTANICAL GARDENS BETWEEN 1997 AND 2012: A CASE SERIES STUDY.

J Zoo Wildl Med 2018 Dec;49(4):902-911

Lead toxicosis remains the primary cause of death in wild populations of California condors ( Gymnogyps californianus). Many condors require medical intervention with lead chelation therapy, among other conservation measures, to survive in the wild. An analysis of historical medical records of California condors admitted for lead exposure to the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens (LA Zoo) between 1997 and 2012 was performed to investigate clinical presentation, radiographic findings, and treatment along with the potential impact of these factors on recovery and successful release back into the wild.

BMJ Case Rep 2018 Sep 1;2018. Epub 2018 Sep 1.

Digestive Endoscopy Unit, Azienda Socio Sanitaria Territoriale Grande Ospedale Metropolitano Niguarda, Milano, Italy.

Colorectal foreign bodies (FB) are challenging issues for the endoscopist especially if the mostly used methods (polypectomy snare, biopsy forceps or wire-guided 40 mm dilation balloon) failed. We report a case of a 31-year-old man who was admitted in the emergency department for the impaction of a 60 cm long and large-size FB in the sigmoid colon. We failed to remove the FB using several different standard technique because of the rigidity, the smoothness and the size of the object. Read More

Atul Maini and Jainty John practice in general surgery at St. Joseph's Hospital Health Center in Syracuse, N.Y. The authors have disclosed no potential conflicts of interest, financial or otherwise.

A trichobezoar is a collection of hair that forms a mass in the gastrointestinal tract and can cause obstructive symptoms when it fails to pass through the intestine. This article reviews the epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, and surgical management of trichobezoar. Managing the psychiatric aspect of this condition is key to preventing recurrence and the need for another surgery. Read More

Hepatic Abscess Secondary to Stomach Perforation by a Fish Bone: a Rare Cause of Hepatic Abscess.

Ann Hepatol 2018 Aug;17(5):880-883

Department of Gastroenterology, The affiliated Jurong Hospital of Jiangsu University, Jurong, Jiangsu, P.R. China.

Gastrointestinal foreign bodies are commonly encountered in clinical practice. However, although perforation of the gastrointestinal tract by a foreign body is not unusual, the formation of a hepatic abscess as a result of the migration of a foreign body is extremely rare. Patients usually present with atypical symptoms, and the treatment of such pyogenic liver abscesses presents a challenge. Read More

Schistosomiasis (Bilharziasis) ova: An incidental finding in testicular tissue of an obstructive azoospermic man.

Andrologia 2018 Dec 22;50(10):e13131. Epub 2018 Aug 22.

Departments of Dermatology, Venereology, Allergology and Immunology, Dessau Medical Center, Brandenburg Medical School Theodore Fontane, Dessau, Germany.

Congenital bilateral absence of vas deferens (CBAVD) results in obstructive azoospermia in which testicular function, such as spermatogenesis, is preserved. Bilateral testicular biopsy is not only diagnostic but also therapeutic as retrieved spermatozoa are usually cryopreserved for assisted reproduction. In this case report, CBAVD was confirmed in a 24-year-old azoospermic man on the basis of persistent azoospermia associated with low semen volume, absent fructose and normal hormonal levels, ultrasonographically (absent seminal vesicles) and histologically (intact spermatogenesis).

Pediatr Emerg Care 2018 Aug 8. Epub 2018 Aug 8.

Acute ingestions of spherical lead ammunition foreign bodies such as bullets and lead shot can cause acute blood lead level elevations and clinical symptoms necessitating emergency department evaluations and sometimes treatment. This article presents 3 cases of children ingesting lead ammunition, all receiving gastrointestinal (GI) decontamination and chelation therapy for significantly elevated blood lead level. Case-specific exposures and treatments for the lead ammunitions are presented. Read More

Institute of Forensic Medicine, University of Belgrade - School of Medicine, 31a Deligradska str, Belgrade, 11000, Serbia.

Two cases of intestinal obstruction in the mentally disabled are reported. The first case concerns 61-year-old oligophrenic woman who resided in a nursing home, where she was found hypotensive and unresponsive. Upon opening the peritoneal cavity at autopsy, extremely dilated (measuring on average 12 cm in diameter) loops of the colon emerged- they compressed the small intestine and other intraperitoneal organs, lifting both hemidiaphragms deep into the pleural cavity.

Gastric varices are a common manifestation of portal hypertension and are associated with a high rate of mortality and rebleeding. Balloon-occluded retrograde transvenous obliteration (BRTO) is a commonly used method to sclerose gastric varices and has a high clinical success. Common complications following BRTO include portal or splenic vein thrombosis, systemic sclerosant extravasation, pulmonary emboli, and inferior vena cava thrombosis. Read More
