Vascular closure devices are frequently used after percutaneous arterial interventions to achieve hemostasis at the puncture site and facilitate early ambulation. Occasionally, complications have been reported with closure devices, such as hematoma, infection, arteriovenous fistula, pseudoaneurysm, and ischemia. This is a report of 2 cases of severe, acute-onset arterial occlusion and critical limb ischemia, one of which occurred in the upper limb following the use of a vascular closure device, and the required surgical treatment...

Acute appendicitis is the most common cause of acute abdominal pain, requiring emergency surgery. Approximately one third of cases have pain unexcepted location due to its various anatomical location. Acute appendicitis is a very rare cause of left lower quadrant pain; if it occurs, a few congenital anomalies should be considered such as Situs Inversus totalis and Midgut Malrotation (MM). MM is a rare congenital anomaly; it occurs due to error in process of rotation or fixation of intestines around the superior mesenteric vessels and it refers to nonrotation or incomplete rotation of intestines...

BACKGROUND: It was thought that the AO types A1.2 and A1.3 fractures are rotationally stable; however, it revealed instability when fixed using the dynamic hip screw. Therefore, we hypothesized that these fractures should be treated as rotationally unstable. METHODS: A series of 83 fractures of the AO types A1, A2, and B2.1 were treated using dynamic hip screw with derotation screw (DHS/DRS) composite and then prospectively followed for 24 months. Adequacy of reduction and fixation were immediately assessed after surgery, and fracture collapse was assessed at six months or when fractures healed...
