Burned-out tumor is a rare phenomenon in which a testicular tumor regresses in the primary lesion and progresses in a metastatic lesion. We report the case of a 30-year-old male with burned-out seminoma revealed by open biopsy of solitary 10th rib bone metastasis. He underwent inguinal orchiectomy, which revealed hyalinization, indicating a spontaneously regressed testicular tumor. Chemotherapy for seminoma was administered in three cycles of bleomycin + etoposide + cisplatin therapy. The chemotherapy was effective, and wide resection of the rib was subsequently performed...

BACKGROUND: A critical appraisal of the benefits of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is needed, but is lacking. This study examined the associations between MIS and 30-day postoperative outcomes including complications graded according to the Clavien-Dindo classification, unplanned readmissions, hospital stay and mortality for five common surgical procedures. METHODS: Patients undergoing appendicectomy, colectomy, inguinal hernia repair, hysterectomy and prostatectomy were identified in the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database...

A 35-year-old woman with biopsy-proven recurrent Hodgkin lymphoma in the neck lymph nodes received salvage chemotherapy of brentuximab/insulin growth factor-methotrexate. Although the patient continued doing well clinically with no constitutional symptoms or significant laboratory abnormalities following the second recurrence, subsequent FDG PET CT examinations over the next 2 years revealed multiple new FDG-avid foci including lymph nodes above/below the diaphragm, liver, spleen, lungs, and bone. An alternate diagnosis of chemotherapy-induced sarcoidosis was suggested and confirmed on both bone marrow and right inguinal node biopsy...

INTRODUCTION: In vascular surgery the crossover iliofemoral bypass grafting is a well-known surgical technique. In general surgery the repair of an abdominal defect using a Polypropylene mesh is also a standard procedure. A particular technique is defined by the performance of these 2 separate procedures inside a single operation in which the crossover arterial graft is directed from the retroperitoneal space toward the contra-lateral femoral bifurcation through a Polypropylene mesh which closes the musculoaponeurotic layers of the abdominal wall...

AIM: Inguinal hernias may be direct or indirect, and supravesical hernias, a subtype of inguinal hernias, are often mistaken as direct hernias as their symptoms are similar. The purpose of this study was to describe the characteristics of supravesical hernias and to introduce a minimally invasive surgical method as a treatment for supravesical hernias. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty-seven patients with supravesical hernias were treated using laparoscopic herniorrhaphy and wall defect suture with a mesh implant from September 2012 to December 2016 at Damsoyu hospital, Seoul, Korea...

Jos C van den Berg
The endovascular treatment of atherosclerotic disease of the infra-inguinal arteries has changed significantly over the last decades. In an attempt to overcome the high restenosis rates that characterize plain balloon angioplasty and stenting using bare mate stents drug-eluting balloon technology has been applied in the treatment of lesions of the superficial femoral and popliteal artery. This paper will give an overview of the rationale and the technology of drug-eluting balloons and will review currently available data from registries and randomized controlled trials...

INTRODUCTION: The need of this study is to assess the role of collagen III in all hernias which include primary inguinal hernias ventral and recurrent abdominal hernias. Collagen type III represents the mechanically instable, less cross-linked collagen synthesized during the early days of wound healing. Quantitative assessment of collagen III in scar tissue on transversalis fascia as tissue obtained from cases operated for various hernias and compared to that of patients operated for abdominal surgeries for indications other than hernia was compared...

INTRODUCTION: There is a growing demand for weight loss sequelae. Some women have a particular morphology with a major trochanteric excess that warrants specific treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS: On the basis of the technique published in 1964 by Pitanguy, the authors suggest a lift of the external face of the thigh with the scar redrawing the lower part of the buttock, from the gluteal fold to the inguinal region by crossing the trochanteric region. Eleven cases of major trochanteric excess after slimming are presented...

Inhibition of Notch signaling via systemic drug administration triggers conversion of white adipocytes into beige adipocytes (browning) and reduces adiposity. However, translation of this discovery into clinical practice is challenged by potential off-target side effects and lack of control over the location and temporal extent of beige adipocyte biogenesis. Here, we demonstrate an alternative approach to stimulate browning using nanoparticles (NPs) composed of FDA-approved poly(lactide-co-glycolide) that enable sustained local release of a Notch inhibitor (dibenzazepine, DBZ)...

Migration of the catheter tip of a ventriculoperitoneal shunt (VPS) through a patent processus vaginalis (PV) has seldom being reported. In this series, we analyzed all cases of inguinoscrotal migration of an VPS catheter at our center. Between 1975 and 2015, 295 VPS insertions were performed. In seven infants (2.3%), migration of the catheter through a patent PV was demonstrated. Cases with hydroceles had associated VPS malfunction, but cases with hernias were not associated with it. The current recommendation is to delay a PV closure until 2 years of age in cases of infants with hydrocele without further radiological examinations, but this might not be the case in infants with VPS...

OBJECTIVES: Aggressive angiomyxoma is known as a mesenchymal tumor of premenopausal women and it is extremely rare in men. METHODS: Herein, we report a 66-year-old male with a firm scrotal mass that had gradually enlarged over 20 years. RESULTS: Radiological studies revealed 10 x 15 cm mass lesion confined to right scrotum with neither local invasion nor distant metastasis. Inguinal orchiectomy was performed and histopathology showed characteristic features of an aggressive angiomyxoma occupying paratesticular region, which was a challenging diagnosis due to its unexpected occurrence in the male gender...

A 39 year-old woman with malignant foot melanoma underwent wide excision of the primary tumor with a safety margin and sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) for the right inguinal lymph node. SLNB was positive and a computed tomography (CT) scan revealed right iliac lymph node swelling. Positron emission tomography computed tomography (PET-CT) scan of the lymph nodes revealed abnormal uptake of fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG). We performed a laparoscopic pelvic lymph node obturator, iliac lymph node) dissection. During the operation, several black lymph nodes were observed in the iliac lymph node...

Puncture above the common femoral bifurcation and below the inguinal ligament is optimal A vast majority of femoral bifurcations occur below the middle third of the femoral head while the inferior epigastric artery rarely descends below the middle third Fluoroscopy or if possible, ultrasound, should be used for femoral access to optimize safe puncture.
