Strangulation of the gallbladder associated with the omentum is extremely rare and, to our knowledge, only two cases have been previously reported. The patient was a 91-year-old female who presented to our emergency room with a chief complaint of upper abdominal pain. Computed tomography imaging revealed a gourd-shaped gallbladder with biphasic appearance divided clearly at the body. In the fundus side, the wall of the gallbladder was oedematous and thickened, while the neck side was intact. On the second day after onset, a laparoscopic cholecystectomy was performed...

BACKGROUND: Although 20-40% of primary care complaints are Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (OtoHNS) related, little emphasis is placed on OtoHNS instruction at the undergraduate medical education level. An OtoHNS clerkship rotation is not required at most Canadian medical schools. Furthermore, at institutions offering an OtoHNS rotation, less than 20% of students are able to complete a placement. Given that a large percentage of medical students in Canada will pursue primary care as a career, there remains a gap in providing OtoHNS clinical training...

INTRODUCTION: Rupture of superior mesenteric artery aneurysm (SMAA) is a very rare and life-threatening condition, presenting with acute intraabdominal hemorrhage. CASE: The patient was hospitalized upon complaint of nonspecific severe abdominal pain. Diagnosis of SMAA was established by abdominal Doppler ultrasound that showed a pseudo-aneurysmal lesion with size of 76 × 47 mm at the superior mesenteric main branch. Endovascular stenting was not performed because of the wide neck in the segment of the jejunal branches from SMA and the risk of branch loss during treatment...

Bladder leiomyoma constitutes less than 0.5% of all bladder tumors. Until now, there have been about 250 case reports of bladder leiomyoma. We present a case of large bladder leiomyoma, that was treated successfully with transurethral resection. The patient presented to our clinic with both obstructive and irritative urinary complaints. Cystoscopy showed a mass lesion completely obstructing the bladder neck at the junction of right lateral wall and floor, which did not extend to ureteral orifices. A transurethral resection was performed at the same sessionof cystoscopy...

BACKGROUND: Non-specific neck pain represents a quarter of all chiropractic patient visits in Denmark. Evidence informed practice can help ensure providers use best available treatment, speed up patient recovery rate and reduce healthcare utilization. It is generally believed that Danish chiropractors treat according to best practice, but we do not know if this is true for management of neck-pain. The objective of this study was to investigate how Danish chiropractors treat patients with acute and chronic non-specific neck pain and determine if management is compliant with recent Canadian guideline recommendations...

Congenital Vascular Malformations (CVM) represents a group of vascular anomalies that are the result of defective development of the vascular system. Lymphatic malformation consists of dilated lymphatic vessels caused by occlusion of the lymphatic drainage system due to congenital malformations or acquired causes such as the effects of trauma, infection, or surgery. Lymphaticovenous Malformation (LVM) is composed of lymphatic and venous channels. The most common sites are the neck and axilla. We report two cases of a four and a half-year-old and a seven-year-old child who presented with complaints of swelling in arm and groin respectively...
