INTRODUCTION: Ganglioneuromas are rare benign neoplasms of the sympathetic nervous system. We describe the case of an incidentally found ganglioneuroma in a woman. To our knowledge this is the first described case of robotic excision of a retroperitoneal ganglioneuroma. CASE: A 41-year-old female had an incidental retroperitoneal mass found during a routine US. CT scan and MRI showed an 8.3cm homogeneous mass, adjacent to left kidney upper pole, with peripheral contrast enhancement...

Hydatidosis is an endemic affection in Morocco. Cerebral echinococcosis is a relatively rare entity accounting for only 1-2% of all hydatid cysts in humans. hydatid cyst of the posterior fossa is a very uncommon site for the disease. We report the case of a 12 year-old child admitted for high intracranial pressure. Brain CT scan showed a posterior fossa cyst without enhancement after contrast medium injection. Operative finding revealed a hydatid cyst. The histological examination of the tissue sample confirmed the diagnosis...

BACKGROUND: Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a congenital abnormality, rare in adults with a frequency of 0.17-6%. Diaphragmatic rupture is an infrequent consequence of trauma, occurring in about 5% of severe closed thoraco-abdominal injuries. Clinical presentation ranges from asymptomatic cases to serious respiratory or gastrointestinal symptoms. Diagnosis depends on anamnesis, clinical signs and radiological investigations. METHODS: From May 2013 to June 2016, six cases (four females, two males; mean age 58 years) of diaphragmatic hernia were admitted to our Academic Department of General Surgery with respiratory and abdominal symptoms...

BACKGROUND: Evidence associates various biometric and histological variables such as steatosis and absence of fibrosis as risk factors for post-operative pancreatic fistula (POPF) after pancreatoduodenectomy (PD). Following distal pancreatectomy (DP), the association between these factors and POPF is less clear. This study of patients, drawn from the same background population, undergoing PD or DP at a single centre is a comparative study of the risk factors for POPF after these two operations...

Differentiated thyroid carcinoma is not highly malignant, and thus surgical resection is the most common treatment even if the carcinoma has invaded the trachea. Although some cases exist in which the carcinoma invades the trachea, using the tracheal window resection method allows complete resection of the carcinoma. Yet these patients must often control a large tracheocutaneous wound until reconstructive surgery is performed because such surgery occurs secondarily. Our hospital admitted three patients for which tracheally invasive, differentiated thyroid carcinoma was surgically resected...

INTRODUCTION: Scapular notching after RSA may, in part, be related to a patient's scapular morphology. The purpose of this study was to develop a novel 3D measurement technique to describe infraglenoid tubercle morphometry. We hypothesize that the parameters describing infraglenoid tubercle would be normally distributed and would correlate with individual's demographics and glenoid morphometry. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A group of 110 subjects treated with RSA were evaluated...

BACKGROUND: The occurrence of post-operative pancreatic fistula (POPF) after pancreaticoduodenectomy is a challenging issue. The aim was to identify variables on preoperative computed tomography (CT) scan, useful to predict clinically significant POPF (grades B-C) after pancreaticoduodenectomy. METHODS: Patients presented POPF after pancreaticoduodenectomy were included from two tertiary referral centres. B/W ratio was defined by ratio of pancreas body thickness (B) to main pancreatic duct (W)...

INTRODUCTION: The clinical relevance of surgical lung biopsy in Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) is supported in the literature. Yet most reports reflect institutional or personal bias. AIM: To evaluate the validity of radiologic diagnosis and clinical impact of lung biopsy to help clarify which patient benefit most from biopsy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of a prospectively managed database. All patients who had a surgical lung biopsy for ILD within a period of four year (2009 to 2013) were included...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: Since 2009 the Society for Vascular Surgery has advocated annual surveillance imaging with ultrasound (US) after the first post-operative year for uncomplicated endovascular aneurysm repairs (EVAR). We sought to describe diffusion of US into long-term routine surveillance and to estimate potential cost savings among Medicare beneficiaries after EVAR. METHODS: Using Medicare claims data we identified patients receiving EVAR from 2002 to 2010 and included only those who did not subsequently have re-interventions, late aneurysm-related complications or death...

Aortic dissection is a complex disease associated with high mortality and morbidity. Among the different possible clinical presentations, type A aortic dissection complicated at the onset by mesenteric malperfusion is characterized by poor outcome compared to patients not presenting such complication. We report the case of a patient with acute type A aortic dissection presenting with mesenteric malperfusion, in whom trans-pericardial color doppler ultra sound (CDUS) examination was used to assess intra and post-operative blood flow in the mesenteric artery...

An 81 year-old woman was referred for the treatment of a 79 mm-diameter short neck abdominal aortic aneurysm with highly tortuous iliac arteries. She was considered at high risk for open repair and not suitable for standard endovascular repair given the short length of the proximal neck. Delay for a manufactured custom-made fenestrated stent-graft was too long given the diameter of the aneurysm. A flexible stent-graft was preferred because of severe iliac tortuosity. Endovascular repair was performed using a physician-modified Anaconda stent-graft with one fenestration for the left renal artery...

BACKGROUND: Patients with penetrating trauma who cannot be stabilized undergo operative intervention without preoperative imaging. In such cases, post-operative imaging may reveal additional injuries not identified during the initial operative exploration. The purpose of this study is to explore the utility of post-operative CT imaging in the setting of penetrating trauma. METHODS: This was a retrospective analysis of patients with penetrating trauma treated at an urban level 1 trauma center between 2010-2015...

Background: Lumbar hernias are rare. Usually manifest with reducible volume increase in the post-lateral region of the abdomen and may occur in two specific anatomic defects: the triangles of Grynfelt (upper) and Petit (lower). Despite controversies with better repair, laparoscopic approach, following the same principle of the treatment of inguinal hernias, seems to present significant advantages compared to conventional/open surgeries. However, some technical and anatomical details of the region, non usual to general surgeons, are fundamental for proper repair...

The authors present the case of a 46-year-old woman who was admitted to their institution after suffering acute intratumoral hemorrhage. There was no history and evidence of neoplasms, trauma, seizures and coagulopathy in the patient. Surgery was performed for evacuation of the hematoma and tumor excision after brain CT scan. Post operative results her neurologic function recovered completely. The pathology reports revealed angioblastic meningioma. The key to make an early and accurate diagnosis is good radiological examination, and definitive surgery can bring a more favorable outcome, lowering the morbidity and mortality rate...
