José León Chirinos-Revilla, Jenny Gabriela Fernandez-Sivincha
Pancreatic Insulinoma is a neuroendocrine tumor of the beta cells of the islets of Langerhans, has an incidence of 4 cases per 1 000 000 persons. We report the case of a 36-year-old woman with altered behavior associated with melancholy. Psychiatry describes an abnormal mental examination and diagnosed double depression; however, the patient had the Whipple triad and insulin/glucose ratio higher than 0.3. The insulinoma was localized by magnetic resonance imaging and treated with surgery. Insulinomas can mimic mental disorders, making early diagnosis difficult...

Janette Greenhalgh, Jennifer Weston, Yenal Dundar, Sarah J Nevitt, Anthony G Marson
BACKGROUND: This is an updated version of the Cochrane Review previously published in Issue 3, 2015.The incidence of seizures following supratentorial craniotomy for non-traumatic pathology has been estimated to be between 15% to 20%; however, the risk of experiencing a seizure appears to vary from 3% to 92% over a five-year period. Postoperative seizures can precipitate the development of epilepsy; seizures are most likely to occur within the first month of cranial surgery. The use of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) administered pre- or postoperatively to prevent seizures following cranial surgery has been investigated in a number of randomised controlled trials (RCTs)...

INTRODUCTION: Atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor (AT/RT) of the central nervous system is characterized by SMARCB1/INI deletion or mutation in the long arm of chromosome 22 11(22q11.2), also resulting in loss of nuclear expression of INI1 protein immunohistochemically. AT/RT tumors usually occur in children below 3 years. The tumor is usually seen in the cerebellum or the cerebrum, with an extremely rare incidence in the spinal cord. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We report a rare case of AT/RT in a 6-year-old boy who had a primary spinal cord lesion in the thoracolumbar junction...

BACKGROUND: Serious complications related to groin access have been reported with the use of resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta (REBOA). We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to estimate the incidence of complications related to groin access from the use of REBOA in adult trauma patients. METHODS: We identified articles in MEDLINE and EMBASE. We reviewed all studies that involved adult trauma patients that underwent the placement of a REBOA and included only those that reported the incidence of complications related to groin access...

OBJECTIVE: To assess whether the location of wound catheters (ie, preperitoneal vs. subcutaneous) impacts outcomes, when compared with alternatives such as epidural analgesia. BACKGROUND: Continuous wound infiltration is an alternative for epidural analgesia in abdominal surgery but studies have shown conflicting results. This difference could be explained by different efficacy of preperitoneal versus subcutaneous placement of the infiltrative catheters. METHODS: A systematic review and meta-analysis was performed according to the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-analyses guidelines until April 3, 2017...

Considerable variation in the use and duration of antiplatelet medications during the perioperative and postoperative care of patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) reflects limited studies focused directly on these patients as well as variation in the results reported. In this review we will highlight the incidence and mechanisms of graft closure as well as the evidence in support of antiplatelet therapy that is balanced by the impact of antiplatelet therapy on the risk of bleeding to provide recommendations for the use of antiplatelet therapy in patients undergoing CABG...

Hepatic splenosis represents the heterotopic implantation of splenic tissue caused by the spillage of cells from the spleen usually after splenectomy or splenic trauma. This condition is usually an incidental finding during surgery and its real incidence is unknown. Splenic implants, which can be placed anywhere in the abdominal cavity, are usually multiple and may be confused with different benign and malignant conditions such as renal tumors, abdominal lymphomas, and endometriosis. We hereby report an unusual case of multiple abdominal splenosis, with a particular intra-hepatic location, that could be misinterpreted as an hepato-cellular carcinoma...

Arachnoid cysts are a relatively common finding in adult patients, especially with the advent of advanced imaging techniques. The overall incidence ranges from 1-2%, and the majority are clinically silent1,2 . Arachnoid cysts are postulated to arise by congenital anomalies or trauma1 . De novo formation of arachnoid cysts has been reported, but is exceptionally rare and mostly found in the pediatric population after head trauma3-5 . There have only been two reported cases of symptomatic de novo arachnoid cyst formation in adult patients to date, both with histories of head trauma6,7 ...

BACKGROUND: Unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) is an alternative to total knee arthroplasty in isolated medial osteoarthritis (OA). However, despite satisfactory reports on the clinical performance, UKA revision rates are still concerning. This retrospective study reports on the long-term survivorship, functional outcomes, and reasons for revision in fixed-bearing UKA implant. METHODS: Between 2005 and 2013, 460 consecutive patients were treated with medial UKA in one center using a fixed-bearing UKA system...

BACKGROUND: Cardiac surgery for myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) patients is challenging because anemia and neutropenia develop as a result of the syndrome, leading to infection and bleeding tendency during surgery. We report the case of minimally invasive mitral valve repair via a right mini-thoracotomy and perioperative use of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) in a patient with MDS. CASE PRESENTATION: A 77-year-old man with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) was referred for surgical treatment for mitral valve regurgitation and underwent a minimally invasive mitral valve repair via a right mini-thoracotomy (MICS mitral procedure)...

Gastric stump cancer (GSC) is a carcinoma arising from the remnant stomach following gastric surgery for benign or malignant disease, and is more common in men. The risk of morbidity has an obvious time dependence. GSC incidence is likely to rise with lengthening of the initial operation interval. The GSC time interval after malignant disease is significantly shorter than that of benign disease. GSC etiologies mainly include duodenogastric reflux and denervation of the gastric mucosa resulting in the change of the gastric environment after gastrectomy and the Helicobacter pylori infection...
