Methylmethacrylate is a prosthetic material commonly used for the reconstruction of large chest wall defects. We present the first reported case of delayed methylmethacrylate plate migration, which resulted in an aortic pseudoaneurysm with aortopulmonary fistula. Treatment management, including staged repair combining endovascular and open approaches, is also discussed.

ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE: In the study area, knowledge related to the traditional uses of medicinal plants is totally in the custody of elder community members and local herbalists. The younger generation is unaware of the traditional knowledge, however with only few exceptions. Therefore, this study was planned with objective to document the medicinal importance of plants, conserve this precious indigenous knowledge, and share it among other communities through published literature...

INTRODUCTION: Open abdomen management has become a well-established strategy in the treatment of serious intra-abdominal pathologies. Key objectives are fistula prevention and high fascial closure rates. The current level of evidence on laparostoma is insufficient. This is due to the rareness of laparostomas, the heterogeneity of study cohorts, and broad diversity of techniques. Collecting data in a standardised, multicentre registry is necessary to draw up evidence-based guidelines. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In order to improve the level of evidence on laparostomy, CAMIN (surgical working group for military and emergency surgery) of DGAV (German Society for General and Visceral Surgery), initiated the implementation of a laparostomy registry...

Anoscrotal fistula is an extremely rare condition involving an epithelialised tract between the anal canal and scrotal wall. It is more commonly seen as a congenital phenomenon in the paediatric population, and has not previously been described in the literature in adults. We present the case of a man aged 52 years who developed a complex anoscrotal fistula after a radical inguinal orchidectomy for an intratesticular seminoma. A postsurgical wound-site infection developed into a chronically discharging wound refractory to antibiotic treatment prompting further investigation...

There are substantial variations in arteriovenous fistula (AVF) use among hemodialysis patients in different countries, in different regions of the U.S., and even in different hemodialysis units within a single metropolitan area. These variations persist after adjustment for patient demographics and comorbidities, suggesting that practice patterns play a major role in determining the frequency of AVF use. These observations led to vascular access guidelines urging nephrologists and surgeons to increase AVF creation in patients with chronic kidney disease...

REVIEW
George W Holcomb
This review centers on the thoracoscopic management of esophageal atresia (EA) and distal tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF). The first thoracoscopic repair of EA was performed by Rothenberg and Lobe in Berlin in 1999 just prior to an IPEG meeting. Since that time, the largest report describing the use of thoracoscopy for EA/TEF repair came in 2005 with a multi-national, multi-institutional retrospective review from six institutions around the world. The outcomes reported were quite good and very comparable to large series of open operations that had been previously reported...

There is a dearth of evidence on the safety of the use of antipsychotics during pregnancy. Olanzapine, a pregnancy category C drug, has no unequivocal evidence of harm to the fetus. Against this backdrop, we report the first case of a tracheo-esophageal fistula (TEF) in a newborn following maternal antenatal exposure to olanzapine. A 29-year-old woman with acute psychotic disorder had been treated with olanzapine for the last 7 years. Her first pregnancy, while taking olanzapine, resulted in a miscarriage at 4 months' gestation, following which she discontinued olanzapine...

BACKGROUND: Ruminal digestion is carried out by large numbers of bacteria, archaea, protozoa and fungi. Understanding the microbiota is important because ruminal fermentation dictates the efficiency of feed utilisation by the animal and is also responsible for major emissions of the greenhouse gas, methane. Recent metagenomic and metatranscriptomic studies have helped to elucidate many features of the composition and activity of the microbiota. The metaproteome provides complementary information to these other -omics technologies...

Background The short- and long-term surgical results in patients with esophageal atresia (EA) with or without tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) have been described in depth from a physician's perspective. Contrarily, the perception and coping strategies of affected patients and their parents have rarely been reported. The aim of this study was to generate data on this matter. Patients and Methods A total of 154 patients who had operative reconstruction for EA between 1971 and 2012 were evaluated for demographic data, surgical technique, affection of daily life, and coping strategies...

We present a rare case of indirect vesicovaginal fistula (VVF) in a patient with small capacity bladder. The fistula was between abdominal pseudocyst (APC) arising from bladder and vagina - and hence, an indirect VVF. A 35-year-old female had a history of emergency obstetric hysterectomy with iatrogenic bladder injury. Postoperatively, the patient developed VVF and large APC. Patient's micturating cystourethrogram was suggestive of small capacity bladder with bilateral Grade IV vesicoureteral reflux with a well-defined APC arising from superior surface of bladder to L4-L5 lumbar vertebrae...

A 26 year-old female patient was admitted for the first time in the surgical, presenting an abnormal connection between the rectum and vagina given a context of an apparently clear period of time following a natural childbirth 1 year and 10 months ago. This is a rare pathological condition with a major physical, mental and sexual impact for a young female. Various surgical treatment solutions are described in the specialized literature. Yet, we have not come across any studies that analyzed the various means of surgical treatment...

Haemobilia is a rare cause of upper gastrointestinal bleeding that consists of haemorrhage within the biliary tree. Most cases of haemobilia are due to iatrogenic cause, laparoscopic or open cholecystectomy, abdominal trauma, gallstones, hepatic tumours, vascular aneurism. We present the case of a male patient admitted in the surgery department for epigastric and right hypochondria pain, nausea and vomiting. Open cholecystectomy was performed with a trans-cystic tube drainage. Postoperative outcome was favourable but with a continuous decrease in haemoglobin level...

We present the case of a 48-year-old patient with no medical history, who presents himself to the emergency room with melena, asthenia and dizziness. The blood tests revealed a severe anemia (Hb = 4,8 g/dL). He is admitted in the Gastroenterology ward, where a first superior digestive endoscopy is performed which shows a duodenal bleeding tumor (second duodenum) of 7 cm in length. After the administration of red blood cell mass, plasma and haemostatic agents the level of the hemoglobin increases. The abdominal CT scan reveals a 3/5 tumor localized in the second and third duodenum...
