Young Jin Park
As the use of compressed air in industrial work has increased, so has the risk of associated pneumatic injury from its improper use. However, damage of large intestine caused by compressed air is uncommon. Herein a case of pneumatic rupture of the rectum is described. The patient was admitted to the Emergency Room complaining of abdominal pain and distension. His colleague triggered a compressed air nozzle over his buttock. On arrival, vital signs were stable but physical examination revealed peritoneal irritation and marked distension of the abdomen...

Chan Seok Yoon, Sung Soo Kang
Primary osteosarcomas of the breast are extremely uncommon. Here we describe a case of a 77-year-old woman who presented with a hard mass on her right breast. Mammography and breast ultrasound demonstrated a round-shaped calcified mass on the right breast but the features were not definitely diagnostic. For diagnostic purposes, an excisional biopsy was performed and the mass proved to be a primary osteosarcoma of the breast by pathologic findings. PET-CT and whole body bone scan showed neither evidence of metastasis nor underlying bone lesions...

Mehmet Dokur, Erdal Uysal
PURPOSE: Postoperative intraperitoneal adhesions (PIAs) are one of the most important problems surgeons have to face after laparotomies. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of local application of botulinum toxin type A (BoNT-A) in various dosages on the prevention of intra-abdominal adhesions in rats with experimental intra-abdominal adhesions. METHODS: Forty Wistar Albino female rats were randomly separated into 4 groups. The 4 groups were determined as follows: Control (group 1, n = 10); Sham (group 2, n = 10); 10-µg/kg low-dose BoNT-A (group 3, n = 10) and 30-µg/kg high-dose BoNT-A (group 4, n = 10)...

PURPOSE: The postoperative treatment after appendectomy is usually decided on the basis of the surgeons' intraoperative findings. Comparatively, the pathologic diagnosis of appendicitis is confirmed several days after the surgery; therefore, it usually does not affect the postoperative treatment strategy. The aim of this study was to investigate the discrepancies between the surgical and pathologic diagnoses of appendicitis and to identify their clinical implication. METHODS: A retrospective observational study was performed in 1,817 patients who underwent 3-port laparoscopic appendectomy for the final diagnosis of appendicitis...

#8
Jung-Hwa Ryu, HeeJung Park, Seung-Jung Kim
PURPOSE: Neointimal hyperplasia (NH) is considered to be one of the main causes of vascular access occlusion in patients receiving hemodialysis. Endothelial injury and TGF-β-mediated proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) induce NH. Endothelial microparticles (EMPs) are also increased by endothelial injury. We aimed to investigate the effects of EMPs and TGF-β expression on VSMC proliferation and their contributions to NH formation in an ex vivo model. METHODS: EMPs were collected from the culture media of human umbilical vein endothelial cells treated with indoxyl sulfate (IS, 250 µg/mL) after ultracentrifugation at 100,000 × g...

Ultrasound can be an effective alternative to computed tomography for surveillance following endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR). Recently, ultrasound fusion imaging with the real-time navigation system was introduced. Here we described 3 patients who underwent post-EVAR surveillance using this novel technique. Complete coregistration was achieved in all patients. The origin of left renal artery was selected for the target of coregistration. Ultrasound fusion imaging was useful to differentiate the confusing lesion and to evaluate the complete resolution of endoleak and newly developed delayed endoleak...
