The authors demonstrate the use of an endovascular plug in securing a carotid artery pseudoaneurysm in an emergent setting requiring craniotomy for a concurrent subdural empyema. They describe the case of a 14-year-old boy with sinusitis and bifrontal subdural empyema who underwent transsphenoidal exploration at an outside hospital. An injury to the right cavernous segment of the ICA caused torrential epistaxis. Bleeding was successfully controlled by inflating a Foley balloon catheter within the sphenoid sinus, and the patient was transferred to the authors' institution...

Pelvic exenteration was first described by Alexander Brunschwig in 1948 in New York as a palliative procedure for recurrent carcinoma of the cervix. Because of initially high rates of morbidity and mortality, the practice of this ultraradical operation was largely confined to a small number of American centers for most of the 20 century. The post-World War II era saw advances in anaesthesia, blood transfusion, and intensive care medicine that would facilitate the evolution of more radical and heroic abdominal and pelvic surgery...

BACKGROUND: Myxofibrosarcoma (MFS) is a common sarcoma in the extremities of older individuals but is extremely uncommon in the head and neck region. Diagnosis may be challenging but is critical to the management of the patient. We discuss the radiographic and histopathologic characteristics of this destructive tumor. The distinguishing features of MFS and its differential diagnosis are reviewed to familiarize the managing otolaryngologist with this rare entity. METHODS: A 61-year-old woman presents with a 6-week history of severe left facial pain and left eye pain...

OBJECTIVE: For locally advanced cervical carcinoma, concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CCRT) is the standard treatment, however, CCRT can lead to development of a vesicovaginal or rectovaginal fistula [1]. Treatment options are limited for patients with laterally recurrent cervical carcinoma and fistula formation after CCRT. Chemotherapy with bevacizumab is now used for recurrent or advanced cervical carcinoma, but this treatment is associated with fistula formation [2]. When the recurrent mass is confined to the pelvic cavity, complete surgical resection with negative margins offers the most promise; however, the resectability rate is low in cases of laterally recurrent tumor [3], which may include bony structures, and survival outcomes seem to be poor in cases of a laterally recurrent vs...

Clinical History A 43-year-old male patient was diagnosed to have rectum carcinoma cT4N2M0 with underlying Lynch-Syndrome. After initializing neoadjuvant radio-chemotherapy followed by operation, the patient presents with an extensive locoregional relapse within a short time. In order to achieve resectability, a second line treatment with FOLFOXIRI protocol in addition to Bevacizumab was conducted. However, after completing six cycles of this intensiv treatment protocol, the tumour showed further progression...

BACKGROUND: Fournier gangrene due to advanced rectal cancer is a rapidly progressive gangrene of the perineum and buttocks. Emergency surgical debridement of necrotic tissue is crucial, and secondary surgery to resect tumors is necessary for wound healing. However, pelvic exenteration damages the pelvic floor, increasing the likelihood of herniation of internal organs into the infectious wound. The management of pelvic exenteration for rectal cancer with Fournier gangrene has not yet been established...

Alveolar soft part sarcoma (ASPS) is a rare but distinct soft tissue tumor with unique histopathological and electron microscopic features. Orbital involvement is rare with only few reports published in the literature. ASPS have an indolent clinical course, but it is known to metastasize. Primary modality of treatment is surgery followed by adjuvant treatment. This case is a unique presentation with orbital mass with on and off bleeding. This is the largest orbital ASPS for which orbital exenteration was performed...

Cervical cancer usually presents in advanced stages and is treated with chemoradiation. About 15-20 % patients present with local recurrence after chemoradiation. Radical surgical resection is the only treatment modality offering long term survival benefit in recurrent cervical cancer. The most common surgical option for these patients is pelvic exenteration. Radical hysterectomy may be done for patients with a small centrally located recurrence in the cervix with no infiltration of adjacent structures. The aim of this study was to evaluate the morbidity and survival outcome following radical hysterectomy and pelvic exenteration for recurrent cancer cervix...

INTRODUCTION: Perineal hernia is a protrusion of intra-abdominal viscera through a defect in the pelvic floor and is a rare but challenging complication after extensive abdominoperineal surgery. There have been small series published after colorectal exenteration, but no cases have been reported after radical cystectomy and urethrectomy. CASE PRESENTATION: A 68 years old woman developed an anterior perineal hernia, with no vaginal prolapse, after an anterior exenteration for bladder cancer...

Orbital exenteration is a disfiguring procedure performed for unresponsive orbital infections and control of recurrent benign tumours and malignancies arising from the eyelids (basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, conjunctival malignant melanoma), lachrymal glands (adenoid cystic carcinoma) or surrounding sinuses. In extremely rare cases the use of a prosthetic eye after enucleation can lead to anophthalmic socket tumours. We report the case of a 54-year-old man who had left eye enucleation due to recurring events of retinal detachment and who developed an invasive fast growing epidermoid carcinoma 30 years later...

Ever since the US Food and Drug Administration approval of the use of da Vinci surgical systems (Intuitive Surgical Inc., Sunnyvale, California) in gynaecology in 2005, robot-assisted surgery has been widely adopted in different countries. Some of the applications in benign and oncological gynaecology include myomectomy, sacrocolpopexy, tubal anastomosis, simple hysterectomy, radical hysterectomy, radical trachelectomy, pelvic and/or para-aortic lymphadenectomy and even debulking surgery for ovarian cancer and pelvic exenteration for recurrent cervical and vaginal cancer...

REVIEW

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is a common malignant tumor throughout the world. One of the known risk factors of BCC is intense exposure to ultraviolet radiation. More than 50% of BCCs of the eyelid initially occur on the lower lid. The gold standard of diagnosis of BCC is histopathology. Treatment options for BCC consist of surgery, vismodegib, radiotherapy and imiquimod. Surgical excision using Mohs micrographic surgery or wide surgical excision with frozen section margin control is the first consideration for treatment of periocular BCC...
