Penile strangulation by different objects and its removal by the modified string method: Management of four cases with review of literature.

Urol Ann 2019 Jan-Mar;11(1):1-5

Department of Urology, IPGME and R, Kolkata, West Bengal, India.

Penile strangulation is a challenging clinical situation and usually requires prompt treatment. Penile strangulation by a nonmetallic or thin metallic ring is easily overcome by severing/cutting the object; however, a heavy and long metal ring causing penile strangulation is not only difficult to sever but also it may worsen the scenario if removal is tried with inappropriate method. Here, we report four cases of penile strangulation by different objects which were successfully removed by aspiration and string method. Read More

A A Pract 2019 Jan 16. Epub 2019 Jan 16.

From the Anesthesia Service, Department of Surgery, Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Bethesda, Maryland.

Esophageal pH monitoring via wireless probes is used to correlate chest pain and atypical symptoms with reflux in gastroesophageal reflux disease. These probes are commonly placed during esophagogastroduodenoscopy performed by gastroenterologists in an ambulatory anesthesia setting. Dislodgment and aspiration of these probes can cause morbidity, require surgical removal, and involve the anesthesia provider in prolonged emergency care. Read More

Rhonchus and Valve-Like Sensation as Initial Manifestations of Long-Standing Foreign Body Aspiration: A Case Report.

Am J Case Rep 2019 Jan 17;20:70-73. Epub 2019 Jan 17.

Omnihospital, Guayaquil, Ecuador.

BACKGROUND Foreign body aspiration (FBA) is an unusual medical condition among adults, with most of the cases associated with identifiable risk factors such as significant neurological impairment, drug or alcohol intoxication, and poor dentition. In some cases, however, FBA can present in an asymptomatic way, with estimates that 80% of lodged bodies are not visible on plain chest x-ray, leading to delayed diagnosis and requiring additional imaging techniques and procedures. We report an unusual case of long-standing FBA manifested as rhonchus and a thoracic valve-like sensation in an otherwise healthy man. Read More

Granulomatous lymphadenitis mimicking metastatic lymphadenopathy in the neck after lymphatic embolization of chyle leakage: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Oct;97(41):e12744

Gyeongsang National University School of Medicine, Jinju.

Rationale: Lymphatic embolization is a minimally invasive treatment option for managing chyle leakage after nodal dissection in the neck. After the procedure, the embolic material may cause foreign body granulomatous lymphadenitis and can be a diagnostic challenge for radiologists because of sonographic similarity to metastatic lymph node. Herein, we describe a clinical case of granulomatous lymphadenitis due to embolic material mimicking nodal metastasis detected on ultrasonography (US) with cytologic findings in a patient with thyroid cancer who underwent lymphatic embolization to treat chyle leakage after total thyroidectomy and neck dissection.

J Investig Med High Impact Case Rep 2018 Jan-Dec;6:2324709618802872. Epub 2018 Oct 4.

State University of New York Downstate Medical Center, Brooklyn, NY, USA.

The barium swallow is an important radiological investigation used for the diagnosis of upper gastrointestinal anatomical disorders like esophageal cancer, diverticulum, achalasia, foreign body, among others. Generally, it is believed to be a safe technique with rare complications, but few cases of barium sulfate aspiration have been reported in the literature with multiple complications. We are reporting a case of an elderly male who underwent esophagogram for the workup of chronic dysphagia, aspirated barium sulfate, and went into respiratory failure and circulatory shock several hours later.

Bronchiectasis is a well-known entity where the airways abnormally dilate losing their natural function. Most common causes of non-cytic fibrosis bronchiectasis in the middle age group include secondary immunodeficiency, aspiration, and allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA). Obstructive foreign body is an uncommon cause of bronchiectasis and is often a missed diagnosis in a localized disease. Read More
