Ayşegül Özcan, Yavuz Şahin
DiGeorge syndrome (DGS) is one of the most frequently seen chromosomal abnormalities. The major genetic cause of DGS is a microdeletion on chromosome 22q11.2. Majority of the cases are diagnosed during their childhood. DGS is rarely considered and diagnosed in adulthood. Herein, we report the first case of a patient with DGS and azoospermia in the literature. Our patient was a 35-year-old male with mild dysmorphic features, hypernasal voice, mental retardation, and azoospermia. His laboratory tests and echocardiographic assessments were normal...

Foreign bodies are rare and challenging issues leading to symptoms according to the location. Laparoscopy is a popular and minimally invasive method used for removal of foreign bodies in the abdominal cavity or retroperitoneum. We herein report a case with retroperitoneal foreign body that was removed through retroperitoneal single- port laparoscopy using nephroscope. To our knowledge this is the first case of removal of a retroperitoneal foreign body through single- port laparoscopy using nephroscope.

Erkan Orhan, Dilek Şenen
OBJECTIVE: Fournier's gangrene is an infective necrotizing fasciitis of the perineal, genital and perianal regions. Treatment includes aggressive surgical debridement that often results in extensive loss of genital skin. Skin grafts may be used for reconstruction but skin grafting of the male genitalia is diffucult because the penis and scrotum are mobile and deformable. A variety of methods are used to secure skin graft to recipient beds. We used negative pressure therapy (NPT) to secure skin grafts and improve skin graft taking...

OBJECTIVE: The incidence of ureteral stricture is showing a rising trend due to increased use of laparoscopic and upper urinary tract endoscopic procedures. Boari flap is the preferred method of repairing long- segment ureteral defects of 8-12 cm. The procedure has undergone change from classical open (transperitoneal and retroperitoneal) method to laparoscopic surgery and recently robotic surgery. Laparoscopic approach is cosmetically appealing, less morbid and with shorter hospital stay...
