Diagnostic laparoscopy to investigate unexplained lactic acidosis in critically ill patients - A descriptive single centre cohort study.

Ann Med Surg (Lond) 2018 Dec 13;36:231-234. Epub 2018 Nov 13.

Department of Surgery, University Hospital Hairmyres, NHS Lanarkshire, East Kilbride, G75 8RG, Scotland, UK.

Introduction: Unexplained lactic acidosis (LA) in a critically ill patient often prompts investigations to rule out any reversible intra-abdominal cause. Equivocal results can lead to an emergency laparotomy (EL) with subsequent high morbidity and mortality rates. Our objective was to determine the clinical impact of urgent diagnostic laparoscopy (UDL) in such patients. Read More

Gallbladder volvulus-acute cholecystitis 'with a twist'.

Authors:
James Aljoe

J Surg Case Rep 2018 Nov 19;2018(11):rjy303. Epub 2018 Nov 19.

General Surgery, Manly Hospital, 150 Darley Road Manly Sydney, Manly, New South Wales, Australia.

A Caucasian 92-year-old female was admitted to hospital with acute epigastric pain associated with vomiting. Initial investigations revealed mildly raised inflammatory markers, normal liver function tests but a markedly distended gallbladder with prominent wall thickening. The patient was managed with intravenous antibiotics for acute cholecystitis but deteriorated significantly on Day 2 of admission. Read More

Gallbladder volvulus with segmental right liver lobe hypoplasia/atrophy: a preoperative diagnostic dilemma.

BMJ Case Rep 2018 Jun 8;2018. Epub 2018 Jun 8.

Radiology, Hamad General Hospital, Doha, Qatar.

Gallbladder volvulus (GBV) due to rotation of the gall bladder (GB) around its own mesentery is a rare surgical emergency and often identified intraoperatively. Typically, cholecystitis is the initial clinical diagnosis, but a high index of suspicion on imaging can alert the physician for the possibility of GBV requiring urgent surgical intervention. We describe a case of a young female patient with hypoplasia/atrophy of the posterior segment of the right liver lobe and a GB with no hepatic attachments but only mesenteric pedicle. Read More

Gallbladder Volvulus in a Patient with Type I Choledochal Cyst: A Case Report and Review of the Literature.

Case Rep Surg 2016 22;2016:5626531. Epub 2016 Sep 22.

Division of Surgical Oncology, Department of Surgery, Milwaukee, WI, USA.

Gallbladder volvulus is a rare, potentially fatal condition unless diagnosed and treated early. Choledochal cysts are rare congenital malformations of the biliary tree predisposing to different pathologies and posing the risk of degradation into cholangiocarcinoma and gallbladder cancer. Dealing with both diseases at once has not been published yet in the literature. Read More

A Curious Case of Right Upper Quadrant Abdominal Pain.

SUNY Downstate Medical Center, Department of Emergency Medicine, Brooklyn, New York; Kings County Hospital Department of Emergency Medicine, Brooklyn, New York.

An otherwise healthy 36-year-old man presented with sudden-onset right upper quadrant abdominal pain and vomiting. A bedside ultrasound, performed to evaluate hepatobiliary pathology, revealed a normal gallbladder but free intraperitoneal fluid. After an expedited CT and emergent explorative laparotomy, the patient was diagnosed with a small bowel obstruction with ischemia secondary to midgut volvulus. Read More

Wandering liver and intestinal malrotation: first report.

Surg Case Rep 2016 Dec 6;2(1):80. Epub 2016 Aug 6.

The Bariatric and Metabolic Institute, Section of Minimally Invasive Surgery, Department of General and Vascular Surgery, Cleveland Clinic Florida, 2950 Cleveland Clinic Boulevard, Weston, FL, 33331, USA.

A wandering liver is a rare development in both the adult and pediatric population where the liver is freely displaced along a transverse axis. We describe the first known occurrence in published literature of a wandering liver in an adult individual who also had an intestinal malrotation complicated by a midgut volvulus. The abnormal ability for a liver to wander presents a highly unusual anatomy that can be disorienting. Read More

Gallbladder Volvulus Presenting as Acute Appendicitis.

Henry Ford Macomb Hospital, Clinton Township, MI 48038, USA.

We encountered a case of gallbladder volvulus in an 88-year-old thin female in which the initial presentation was more consistent with that of acute appendicitis. After complete work-up, including physical exam, lab work, and computed tomography, the definite diagnosis of gallbladder volvulus was not made until intraoperative visualization was obtained. Gallbladder volvulus is a rare but serious condition, which requires a high clinical suspicion so prompt surgical intervention can be undertaken. Read More

Congenital anomalies of the gallbladder, the biliary tract and their vasculature are relatively common. They usually represent only anatomical variations that may not manifest clinically, but in some cases they are of fundamental importance for the surgeon as they can cause diagnostic confusion or lead to problems during surgery. Their ignorance may result in many errors, injury during surgery and subsequent serious consequences. Read More

Torsion of the gallbladder resulting in a volvulus is a rare clinical finding that poses a diagnostic challenge preoperatively to both surgeons and radiologists. It is thought to occur secondary to a redundant mesentery where rotation of the gallbladder occurs along the axis of the cystic duct and cystic artery. Gallbladder volvulus commonly presents as acute cholecystitis and is rarely diagnosed preoperatively. Read More

A case of a 78-year-old female who presented with clinical, ultrasonographic and laboratory findings typical of acute cholecystitis is presented. Diagnostic laparoscopy revealed a hemorrhagic infrahepatic mass and free blood within the peritoneal space; the procedure was then converted to an open one, which identified a 15 x 5 cm mass corresponding to a gallbladder volvulus. The final histopathologic study confirmed the diagnosis. Read More

Acute gallbladder torsion - a continued pre-operative diagnostic dilemma.

World J Emerg Surg 2011 Apr 13;6(1):13. Epub 2011 Apr 13.

Acute gallbladder volvulus continues to remain a relatively uncommon process, manifesting itself usually during exploration for an acute surgical abdomen with a presumptive diagnosis of acute cholecystitis. The pathophysiology is that of mechanical organo-axial torsion along the gallbladder's longitudinal axis involving the cystic duct and cystic artery, and with a pre-requisite of local mesenteric redundancy. The demographic tendency is septua- and octo-genarians of the female sex, and its overall incidence is increasing, this being attributed to increasing life expectancy. Read More
