Methods of treating obesity in selected cases include endoscopically performed procedures, among them endoscopically placed intragastric balloons. It is a method associated with a low complication rate, traditionally reserved to treat the most obese patients. Balloon rupture or deflation and its migration into the small bowel is one of the possible complications. In some cases, the balloon moves through the digestive tract without side effects. When the balloon's displacement in the intestine is impossible, gastrointestinal obstruction occurs...

Primary hyperparathyroidism is overproduction of parathyroid hormone, causing hypercalcemia. Parathyroid adenomas have been found to be the etiology for 80% of cases of primary hyperparathyroidism, while almost a quarter of them are ectopic. We present a case of ectopic thymic parathyroid adenoma, treated by the thoracoscopic approach. Preoperative computed tomogram and technetium-99-sestamibi imaging showed an adenoma, located in the front mid-mediastinum, approximately 8 × 10 mm in size. Resection of the tumor was indicated according to the persistent hypercalcemia after unsuccessful surgical treatment performed 3 years ago...

The aim of this paper is to present the case of a 40-year-old man who accidentally ingested a piece of metal. The patient complained of having intermittent right lower quadrant abdominal pain for 2 days. An abdominal X-ray was performed, and a piece of metal was found in the right lower quadrant of the abdomen. There was no gas in the abdominal cavity. Surgical treatment was therefore needed. Single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) was attempted with conventional laparoscopic instruments. The foreign body was identified around the ileocecal region, an enterostomy was made and the foreign body was successfully removed...

Abdominal pseudocyst (AP) is quite a rare complication after ventriculoperitoneal shunting (VPS) for the treatment of hydrocephalus. Laparoscopy is an alternative method to open surgery with well-known advantages. There are not many reports of using laparoscopy to treat this condition and existing algorithms are based on small groups of patients; thus every case would give an additional insight into the treatment of this complication. A 37-year-old male patient with a history of VPS presented with headache, nausea and upper abdominal pain...

Introduction: Over the recent years, the progress in imaging techniques has led to increased detection of small renal masses (SRMs), including in elderly and high-risk patients. Partial nephrectomy (nephron-sparing surgery - NSS), the current standard of care in T1a kidney tumours, has some limitations in patients who are poor candidates for surgery, as it is associated with potential perioperative complications and possible renal function loss. Radiofrequency ablation (RFA), a minimally invasive method that can be performed percutaneously, is an option in such cases...

Introduction: Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) is a diagnostic method used in the investigation of upper gastrointestinal system diseases. A high level of anxiety of patients who undergo EGD increases the duration of the procedure and the sedation and analgesic requirements. Sedation is used to increase patient comfort and tolerance by reducing the anxiety and pain associated with endoscopic procedures. Aim: In this study, the effect of anxiety scores on medication doses was investigated in patients who underwent EGD under sedation...
