A congenital bladder diverticulum (CBD) is caused by inherent muscular weakness instead of obstruction of the bladder outlet. The major clinical conditions are recurrent urinary tract infection (UTI) and voiding dysfunction. This report describes a 15-year-old male adolescent who developed sudden visual disturbance resulting from hypertensive retinopathy. The cause of hypertension was bilateral obstructive uropathy caused by enlarged paraureteral bladder diverticula. After the non-functioning right kidney and ureter and the bilateral diverticula were removed, the left ureter was reimplanted in the bladder...

Giant colonic diverticulum (GCD), defined as diverticulum larger than 4 cm, is a rare entity. It is generally a manifestation of colonic diverticular disease and can have dramatic complications such as perforation, abscess, volvulus, infarction and adenocarcinoma. This report documents the case of a 63-year-old man coming to the Emergency Department with acute abdomen due to a perforation of a GCD. In the plain abdominal X-ray the 'Balloon-sign' was revealed, computed tomography scan and Hartmann's procedure were performed...

A 47-year-old man with progressive anemia possibly due to digestive tract bleeding was referred to our hospital. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography of the abdomen showed a 2-cm tumor lesion arising near the small intestine. Enteroscopy revealed a 3-cm submucosal tumor at the ileum. A gastrointestinal stromal tumor of the small intestine was suspected, and the patient underwent surgery. During the operation, a diverticulum approximately 60 cm orad to the terminal ileum and a tumor at the top of the diverticulum were observed...

OBJECTIVE(S): To introduce a new method using a Foley catheter to locate the diverticulum in laparoscopic repair of uterine cesarean scar defect (CSD), and to evaluate the gynecological outcomes and prognosis of this new procedure. STUDY DESIGN: Twelve patients with abnormal uterine bleeding or future fertility requirements opted for the laparoscopic repair of CSD. Then we present a series of photographic images before and after placement of the Foley catheter, and their clinical data to evaluate this new surgical technique...

Zenker's diverticulum (ZD), or pharyngeal pouch, is an anatomical defect characterised by herniation of the posterior pharyngeal wall through Killian's dehiscence, and may result in dysphagia and regurgitation. Multiple therapeutic modalities including surgery, rigid and flexible endoscopy have been developed to manage ZD. Although surgical management with open and endoscopically-assisted techniques have historically been the mainstay of ZD treatment, minimally invasive flexible endoscopic techniques, performed under conscious sedation, are increasingly favoured...

We present the case of an 82-year-old man with a history of heart failure, mitral regurgitation, type 2 DM, hypertension, dilated cardiomyopathy and a paroxysmal atrial flutter. The patient was under treatment with Sintrom. The patient presented to the emergency department due to melenic depositions of a one day evolution and dietary vomiting. There was no rectal bleeding and the patient was admitted three months previously due to self-limited melena with a normal gastroscopy. Anemia of 8 g and an overdose of Sintrom was diagnosed...

The jugular bulb is a venous structure linking the sigmoid sinus with the internal jugular vein. Jugular diverticulum is a rare condition characterized by extraluminal outpouching from the jugular bulb. As the patients may be totally asymptomatic, but sensorineural symptoms such as sensorineural hearing loss, tinnitus and vertigo can also occur. Diagnosis of these patients can be made by some radiologic methods such as high-resolution computerized tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, or a novel radiologic technique flat panel computed tomography...

A bladder diverticulum (BD) is a herniation of the bladder urothelium through the muscular bladder wall. As a result, BD presents as a thin walled bag, urine filled connected to bladder lumen through a neck or ostium. The clinical problem with bladder diverticula is their poorly empty during micturition which results in multiple lower urinary tract symptoms as well as recurrent urinary tract infections. Bladder diverticula can be grossly classified in two groups as follows: congenital or acquired with different age presentation and etiological factors in each one...

Deborah L Ellison
Diverticular disease accounts for approximately 300,000 hospitalizations per year in the United States, resulting in 1.5 million days of inpatient care. Diverticulitis is defined as an inflammation of the diverticulum, which can be asymptomatic or symptomatic. This disease is the third most common gastrointestinal illness that requires hospitalization and the leading indication for elective colon resection. Abdominal pain is the most common complaint in patients with acute diverticulitis. The pain can be described as cramping, constant, and persistent for several days...

Enterobius vermicularis is an intestinal nematode commonly affecting children worldwide. Its transmission is by feco-oral route. Meckel's diverticulitis due to E. vermicularis infestation is an extremely rare presentation. An 11-year-old boy presented with acute abdomen. During surgery inflamed Meckel's diverticulum (M.D) was seen. Histopathology examination of specimen revealed E. vermicularis. Till date, only one case of E. vermicularis infestation of M.D is reported around five decades ago. This histopathological confirmation is extremely important as the required treatment (Mebendazole) of the infected case along with household contacts can prevent the spread of infection and may avoid surgery in known contacts...

Professor Zofia Umiastowska Sawicka laid the foundations for modern pediatric surgery in Poland, first in Bialystok, and subsequently in Kielce. She was a student of Prof. Jan Kossakowski from Warsaw Medical University to be counted among his most talented and skilled disciples. Professor Umiastowska became the head of the first Department of Pediatric Surgery in Bialystok, which was later incorporated into the Medical Academy of Bialystok. In 1977 she moved to Kielce to run the Department of Pediatric Surgery until her retirement in 1991...

Four cases of gastrointestinal perforation associated with bevacizumab(BEV)were examined. Case 1: A 82-year-old male received FOLFIRI plus BEV for recurrent liver metastasis after rectal cancer resection. A lower esophageal perforation occurred 22 days after BEV administration and drainage was performed. Case 2: A 69-year-old female received FOLFOX4 plus BEV for unresectable rectal cancer and liver and lung metastasis. A rectal perforation occurred 6 days after BEV administration and suturing closure of the hole and colostomy was performed...

RATIONALE: Most of the esophageal diverticulums are congenital traction instead of in childhood. In most conditions, esophageal diverticulums are free of any symptoms. As one of the rare entity, esophageal diverticulum can also result in bronchoesophageal fistula. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 10-year-old girl was admitted due to a 2-month history of cough and choking after drinking, and fever for 3 days. No symptoms when taking solid food were found. DIAGNOSES: By esophagogram, 3-dimensional computed tomography and esophagoscopy, an esophageal diverticulum was demonstrated in the middle esophagus with a bronchoesophageal fistula visualized...
