INTRODUCTION: Liposome supported peritoneal dialysis is a recently described technique which may eventually be applicacle in the clinical scenario of the intoxicated patient. We evaluated the hypothesis that intravenous injection lipid emulsion (ILE) would augment acidic pH gradient liposome supported peritoneal dialysis (LSPD). METHODS: Orogastrically amitriptyline dosed rats were treated with either NaHCO3 intravenously and standard intraperitoneal dialysate (A); NaHCO3 intravenously and LSPD (B); or ILE and LSPD (C)...

In many developing countries like Cameroon, unsafe abortion is a major public health problem. It can be responsible for severe complications including damage to the digestive and/or urinary tract, sepsis, and uterine perforation. Uterine perforation could be caused by most of the instruments that are used to evacuate the uterus. We report a case of apparent uterine perforation and subsequent migration of the plastic or rubber catheter into the peritoneal cavity during an abortion procedure performed in a setting that may have been unsafe...

INTRODUCTION: The spontaneous perforation of the biliary tract (SPBT) is an extremely rare cause of peritonitis, which was first described by Freeland in 1982, to date only around 70 cases have been reported. Here we present a case of spontaneous perforation of the biliary tract, in a patient with choledocholithiasis, which was treated with ultrasound-guided drainage and ERCP. CASE REPORT: A 51-year-old male was admitted to the emergency room for 15-day evolution jaundice, localized pain in the right flank and hypochondrium of 3days...

Normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) is a chronic disorder caused by interrupted CSF absorption or flow. Generally, shunt placement is first option for NPH treatment. Due to complications of ventriculo-peritoneal (VP) shunt placement, endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) can be considered as an alternative treatment option. Here we report the efficacy of ETV especially in old aged patients with normal pressure hydrocephalus. Total 21 old aged patients with communicating hydrocephalus with opening pressure, measured via lumbar puncture, less than 20cm H2O underwent ETV...

BACKGROUND: Surgeons who perform laparotomy have a number of decisions to make regarding abdominal closure. Material and size of potential suture types varies widely. In addition, surgeons can choose to close the incision in anatomic layers or mass ('en masse'), as well as using either a continuous or interrupted suturing technique, of which there are different styles of each. There is ongoing debate as to which suturing techniques and suture materials are best for achieving definitive wound closure while minimising the risk of short- and long-term complications...

BACKGROUND: Neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) is a marker of both tissue injury and infection. Urine NGAL levels strongly predict acute kidney injury and mortality in patients with cirrhosis, but ascites NGAL is not well characterized. We hypothesized that ascites NGAL level is a marker of spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP) and mortality risk in patients with cirrhosis. METHODS: Hospitalized patients with cirrhosis and ascites undergoing diagnostic paracentesis were prospectively enrolled and followed until death or discharge...

Tumoral calcinosis is an uncommon type of extraosseous calcification characterized by large rubbery or cystic masses containing calcium-phosphate deposits. The condition prevails in the periarticular tissue with preservation of osteoarticular structures. Elevated calcium-phosphorus products and severe secondary hyperparathyroidism are present in most patients with uremic tumoral calcionosis (UTC). Case report of an obese secondary to chronic glomerulonephritis, undergoing continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) reported the appearance of painless tumors in the medial surface of fifth finger and left arm...

BACKGROUND: Acute pancreatitis can be a life-threatening complication in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), especially in kidney transplant recipients. CASE DIAGNOSIS/TREATMENT: The patient was 7 years old when he received renal transplantation for CKD secondary to posterior urethral valves. Two years later, he presented with severe necrotizing pancreatitis (Ranson's score 5, Balthazar's score 8). Viral and genetic testing came back negative; pancreatitis was attributed to the patient's treatments (prednisone, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, and everolimus)...

Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is an autoinflammatory disease manifested by inflammatory attacks of peritonitis, pleuritis, pericarditis accompanied by fever and arthritis. Mutations of MEFV gene results in pyrin dysfunction, which causes uncontrolled interleukin-1 beta production and triggers the inflammatory attacks. Inflammation persists even during attack-free periods in one-third of the FMF patients. Findings of elevated proinflammatory cytokine patterns during remission as well as inflammatory attacks indicate the continuous subclinical disease activity and inflammation...

PURPOSE: Laparoscopic total extra-peritoneal hernia repair (TEP) is associated with less post-operative pain and earlier return to normal activity compared to open hernia repair (OHP). Despite this, post-operative pain remains a major issue. The aim of this double-blinded randomized controlled trial was to identify whether the instillation of local anaesthetic in the pre-peritoneal space improves pain scores following TEP. METHODS: One hundred patients undergoing laparoscopic total pre-peritoneal hernia repair (TEP) between the years of 2009-2014 were included...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate a minimal invasive surgical (MIS) technique for curative excision of extensive secondary disseminated peritoneal leiomyomatosis (DPL). SETTING: In MIS, the myoma has to be divided into small fragments for piecemeal retrieval through a small incision [1], a widely used technique is morcellation (confined or unconfined) [2]. Disseminated peritoneal leiomyomatosis (DPL) is a rare sequel following laparoscopic morcellation. Since this entity is rarely reported, this video demonstrates laparoscopic technique for safe removal of DPL post laparoscopic myomectomy and morcellation...

Introduction. Posaconazole is a triazole antifungal that is used in the treatment of a variety of fungal infections, as well as in the management of mucormycosis (on an off-label basis). Eosinophilia associated with exposure to azole antifungals has been described rarely in the literature. Case presentation. A 31-year-old male on peritoneal dialysis (PD) for end-stage renal disease, secondary to diabetic nephropathy, presented to hospital with abdominal pain after a trip to St Lucia. He was taken to the operating room, where the PD catheter was removed and an abdominal-wall abscess was debrided...

Lenvatinib, a novel potent multikinase inhibitor, was approved for the treatment of radioiodine-refractory differentiated thyroid cancer based on results from phase III trial (SELECT study). Thyroid cancer is a diverse disease that includes anaplastic thyroid cancer (ATC), which the most aggressive form of the disease, although it accounts for <2% of all thyroid cancers. Current treatments for ATC have limited efficacy. We report the case of a woman with recurrent well-differentiated papillary carcinoma of the thyroid that had transformed into ATC who developed a perforation of the small intestine secondary to a marked effect of lenvatinib...

BACKGROUND: The primary and secondary prevention of spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP) is recommended in high-risk patients with cirrhosis. Several studies evaluating the efficacy of rifaximin for SBP prophylaxis have yielded conflicting results. Rifaximin has the potential advantage of preventing bacterial overgrowth and translocation without the systemic side effects of broad-spectrum antibiotics. AIM: To evaluate the efficacy of rifaximin in the primary and secondary prevention of SBP...

OBJECTIVE: Early allograft dysfunction may be caused by several technical factors including vascular complications such as thrombosis, kinking, or extrinsic compression. Renal allograft compartment syndrome (RACS) is an unrecognized cause of early allograft dysfunction. This complication is characterized by increased pressure of the iliac fossa that reduces the blood supply to the graft with a potentially devastating consequence. The main objective when recognizing this condition is to create a tension-free muscle closure...

BACKGROUND: Early-onset peritonitis is a serious complication of peritoneal dialysis (PD) and is associated with heightened risks of technique failure and death. The risk factors for early peritonitis and its outcomes are unknown. METHODS: This registry study examined all incident Australian PD patients between 2003 and 2014. The primary outcome was early peritonitis, defined as onset within 12 months of starting therapy. Secondary outcomes were medical cure, relapse/recurrence, catheter removal, peritonitis-associated technique failure, and peritonitis-associated death...

CASE DESCRIPTION A 17-month-old neutered female Labrador Retriever with a 3- to 4-month history of abdominal distention was referred for evaluation and treatment. CLINICAL FINDINGS Evaluation of a peritoneal fluid specimen collected by the referring veterinarian indicated a pure transudate. At admission, transabdominal ultrasonography revealed microhepatica, dilation of the intrahepatic and mesenteric vasculature, peritoneal effusion, and multiple aberrant blood vessels. A large, high-flow hepatic arteriovenous malformation (HAVM) with secondary portal hypertension, peritoneal effusion, multiple acquired portosystemic shunts, and microhepatica was evident on CT angiography...
