A variety of indications have made the use of double pigtail ureteral catheters routine in urological practice. Although side effects are frequent they are usually mild. We report a case of intravenous stent migration after simultaneous perforation of the left ureter and left common iliac vein during retrograde J-stent placement. To the authors' knowledge such a potentially severe complication of a J-stent has not been previously described. A postprocedural plain abdominal radiograph is a helpful tool which may suggest possible misplacement of the pigtail stent especially if urine fails to return from the distal opening and, if verified, advocate immediate intervention in order to avoid any further devastating complications...

Apparently, then, we are confronted with this result,-that citrate plasma which causes little or no constriction of the stretched artery ring, little or no slowing of the flow through the frog perfusion preparation, while the corresponding serum produces a marked effect on both preparations, will affect the intestine or uterus preparation practically in the same way as the corresponding serum. Hirudin plasma and serum exert on the intestine and uterus preparations practically the same effect, causing a marked increase of tone...

Nasal foreign bodies are very common in daily clinical practice. Their simplicity in pathology and diagnosis often gives the wrong impression of little or no risk of complications. A 5-year (1998 - 2002) prospective study of 106 patients with nasal foreign bodies was done to evaluate and present the patterns, possible challenges and complications or problems in the management of this condition in the Nigerian Africans. The male to female ratio was 1:1.26 (M 47; F 59) and with an average age of 3 years. The duration of symptoms ranged from degrees hour to 4 years with 74 (69...

Authors injected a 1.5-2 cc Gax-Collagen into the tongue of 13 rats in order to examine the reactivity of the tissues around the graft and its attitude and duration. The research had practical purposes as the material is mainly used in E.N.T. for reconstructing the vocal cords. The animals have been sacrificed from 1 day to 9 months and the tongue subjected to the ordinary histologic methods. Our conclusions are as follows: a) a moderate inflammatory reaction following the introduction of the foreign body, then it attenuates and disappears at the third month; b) the implant is well tolerated, does not cause structural alterations in the surrounding tissues, in particular in the musculature where it is placed; c) a neovascularization appears, it lessens over the time, keeping itself only at the edge of the graft; d) in the formed fissures, fibroblasts, traces of collagen and neocollagen are present...
