BACKGROUND: Adult Wilms tumor (WT, nephroblastoma) is a rare, but well-described renal neoplasm. Although inferior vena cava tumor thrombosis is present in up to 10% of Wilms tumors in childhood, only few cases of this clinical manifestation in adults have been reported. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of adult WT infiltrating into inferior vena cava (IVC) with concomitant distal deep vein thrombosis. CASE PRESENTATION: A 28-year-old male patient with gross hematuria and right flank pain was diagnosed with right kidney tumor penetrating to IVC...

BACKGROUND: Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) cirrhosis is a common indication for liver transplantation (LT) in the U.S. There is a paucity of data on retransplantation (re-LT) in those who were initially transplanted for NASH. METHODS: We queried the UNOS data sets from 2002-2016 to analyze the outcomes of adults with NASH (n=128) and compared them to groups that received re-LT for cryptogenic cirrhosis (CC, n=189), alcoholic cirrhosis (AC, n=300) or autoimmune hepatitis cirrhosis (AIH-C, n=118) after excluding multiple-organ re-LT and individuals with HCC...

Background/Aim: A reduction in portal vein inflow velocity seems to predispose to the emergence of portal vein thrombosis (PVT). Nonselective β-blockers (NSBBs), used to prevent variceal bleeding, may increase the development of PVT by reducing portal vein inflow velocity. In this retrospective case-control study, we evaluated the risk factors and clinical features of a first event of PVT in 130 cirrhotics, 19 (15%) with (PVT group) and 111 (85%) without PVT (non-PVT group). Patients and Methods: Patient evaluation and NNBB treatment were carried out according to the AASLD guidelines...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic conversion-to-open colorectal surgery is associated with worse outcomes when compared to operations completed without conversion. Consequences of robotic conversion have not yet been determined. The purpose of this study is to compare short-term outcomes of converted robotic colorectal cases with those that are completed without conversion, as well as with cases done by the open approach. METHODS: The ACS-NSQIP database was queried for patients who underwent robotic completed, robotic converted-to-open, and open colorectal resection between 2012 and 2015...

BACKGROUND: Sodium lactate seemed to improve fluid balance and avoid fluid overload. The objective of this study was to determine if these beneficial effects can be at least partly explained by an improvement in disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC)-associated renal microvascular thrombosis. METHODS: Ancillary work of an interventional randomized open label controlled experimental study. Fifteen female "Large White" pigs (2 months old) were challenged with intravenous infusion of E...

BACKGROUND: Surgical residency training programs in the United States are modeled on the principle of graduated responsibility. Residents are given greater responsibility and autonomy in the operating room and during perioperative care as they gain surgical skills and progress through their training. The impact of this method of surgical training on patient outcomes remains unknown. The purpose of this study is to compare early patient morbidity and mortality after bariatric surgery in cases with and without resident participation using the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database...

Renal vein thrombosis (RVT) is most often an implication of nephrotic syndrome. Pyelonephritis has been associated at a much lower rate, with the incidence of Klebsiella pneumoniae causation being extremely rare. In our case, a 35-year-old female patient presented with right-sided K. pneumoniae-positive acute pyelonephritis complicated by perinephric abscess and renal vein thrombosis. She was successfully treated with anticoagulation and extended antibiotic therapy. The possibility of RVT in patients with K...

BACKGROUND: The efficacy and safety of managing patients with low-risk pulmonary embolism (PE) without hospitalization requires objective data from US medical centers. We sought to determine the 90-day composite rate of recurrent symptomatic venous thromboembolism (VTE), major bleeding events, and all-cause mortality among consecutive patients diagnosed with acute low-risk PE managed without inpatient hospitalization; and to measure patient satisfaction. METHODS: We performed a prospective cohort single-arm management study conducted from January 2013 to October 2016 in five emergency departments...

BACKGROUND: The external iliac vein is the standard site used for venous anastomosis in kidney transplantation. When a pre-transplantation diagnosis of iliocaval thrombosis is established, a different and suitable venous drainage for the renal outflow must be identified for successful transplant. METHODS: We report 4 cases of kidney transplantation, performed from 2004 to 2016, in recipients presenting with thrombosis of the inferior vena cava and iliac system needing, because of the lack of access for dialysis, urgent kidney transplantations...

BACKGROUND: Interleukin-2 (IL2)-based immunotherapy is curative for a small subset of patients with metastatic renal-cell carcinoma (mRCC). Preclinical data suggests that bevacizumab (BEV), a humanized anti-VEGF monoclonal antibody, has potential immunomodulatory effects by permitting efficient natural killer (NK) cell-mediated killing and by reverting immune suppression. PATIENT AND METHODS: We performed a randomized phase II study comparing IL2/IFN (interferon)/BEV with IL2/IFN in favourable/intermediate-risk mRCC patients...

RATIONALE: Thrombosis due to anastomotic site stenosis is the most common complication in patients with brachio-axillary arteriovenous graft (AVG). Intravascular stent placement may play a special role in the salvage of dialysis grafts that have been previously performed percutaneous angioplasty or surgical procedure on the graft. Herein, we applied a novel stent named Supera which has a high degree of flexibility and resistance to external compression for treating a patient with recurrent venous anastomotic stenosis of brachio-axillary AVG...

Mycobacterium abscessus is a fast growing, non-tubercular mycobacterium (NTM) found in water. NTM bacteremia is usually seen in immunocompromised patients who have intravascular catheters. Mycobacterium abscessus bacteremia is often caused by exposure to contaminated water supply in hemodialysis units. A 28-year-old female with poorly controlled diabetes mellitus, end stage renal disease (on hemodialysis via Ash catheter), and recurrent deep vein thrombosis presented to the hospital with proximal right leg deep vein thrombosis...

OBJECTIVE: To characterize the relationship between portal vein thrombosis (PVT) and hepatic atrophy in the non-cirrhotic patients and the effect of various types of surgical shunts on liver regeneration and splenomegaly. BACKGROUND: Non-cirrhotic patients with PVT suffer from presinusoidal portal hypertension and often hepatic atrophy, a topic that has received little attention. We hypothesized that patients with PVT have decreased liver volumes, and shunts that preserve intrahepatic portal flow enhance liver regeneration...
