A woman aged 64 years presented as an emergency with a mass in the right iliac fossa, clinically within the abdominal wall, but an otherwise soft abdomen. Systemically, she was quite well with normal vital signs. Blood tests revealed raised inflammatory markers, and an abdominal CT scan demonstrated a perforated appendix with associated large subcutaneous abscess. This represents a rare presentation of a common condition, demonstrating how appendicitis can still be a challenging problem for the clinician...

INTRODUCTION: A 42-year-old woman presented with urinary incontinence 9 years after the last of four vaginal deliveries. She had also had one Caesarean section. Immediately after the last delivery, she presented with haematuria, which resolved within a few hours, but the drain remained prophylactically for 7 days. Nine years later, she was referred to a specialist hospital. METHOD: The patient presented with continuous urinary incontinence, and physical examination revealed a loss of urine from the vagina, the latter confirmed by a methylene blue test showing loss of urine from the uterine cervix...

Fabric monofilament polyethylene mesh is an implant primarily used in the repair of abdominal and chest walls. However, there have been isolated reports of using this implant in facial reconstruction. The authors describe a patient who underwent prior orbital floor fracture repair with polyethylene mesh and subsequently developed a recurrent orbital abscess 12 years later. Despite incorporation of the fabric monofilament polyethylene mesh within healed bone, an orbitocutaneous fistula developed after a secondary injury, causing hyperglobus and cicatricial lower eyelid retraction...

Arteriovenous fistula (AVF) of splenic vessels is rare. It is most commonly caused by spontaneous rupture of an extant splenic artery aneurysm into an adjacent vein, or by traumatic or iatrogenic pseudoaneurysm. Blunt abdominal trauma can sometimes lead to vascular damage to spleen, resulting in AVF formation. Presently described is case of an elderly patient with high-grade splenic injury. Early post-traumatic AVF was detected by volume-rendered 3D reconstruction using fused arterial and venous phase computed tomography (CT) images...

PURPOSE: We evaluated the efficacy of ultrasonography (US) in the early postoperative period after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) to diagnose postoperative-pancreatic-fistula (POPF). Early diagnosis is important to prevent POPF-dependent mortality after PD. The value of radiological modalities for early diagnosing POPF is not clear. METHODS: Forty-five patients who underwent transabdominal-US in the first postoperative week after PD were retrospectively evaluated...

OBJECTIVE: Despite technical advances of fenestrated and branched endografts, endovascular exclusion of aneurysms involving renal, visceral, and/or supra-aortic branches remains a challenge. In situ fenestration (ISF) of standard endografts represents another endovascular means to maintain perfusion to such branches. This study aimed to review current indications, technical descriptions, and results of ISF. METHOD: A review of the English language literature was performed in Medline databases, Cochrane Database, Web of Science, and Scopus using the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis (PRISMA) guidelines...

Aortoenteric fistula (AEF) is a life-threatening condition that can present with gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding. AEFs have been classified into primary and secondary types. Primary AEF (PAEF) is a direct communication between the aorta and the GI tract. Secondary AEF (SAEF) is the result of a previous abdominal aortic aneurysm repair involving placement of a synthetic aortic graft. Diagnosis of AEF, especially PAEF, is difficult largely because AEF is so rarely encountered in practice. Computed tomography (CT) and endoscopic gastroduodenoscopy (EGD) are most frequently used to diagnose AEF, with abdominal contrast-enhanced CT being the preferred initial diagnostic test of choice...

INTRODUCTION: Urorectal septum malformation sequence (URSMS) is a rare congenital abnormal syndrome that is caused by the incomplete division of the cloaca. Based on whether the cloaca membrane breaks down or not, the URSMS are classified as full and partial forms. The prenatal diagnosis of URSMS remains challenging because of poor recognition to this malformation and the relatively non-specific sonographic features. We report a prenatally sonographic diagnosed case of the partial URSMS, and review the literature to summarize the prenatal features...

BACKGROUND: Refractory external pancreatic fistula (REPF) is a rare but troublesome event. Fistulojejunostomy with direct suture of the fistula wall to jejunal wall has been demonstrated as a solution. However, it is sometimes technically difficult and some cases of failure were reported. METHODS: An embedding fistulojejunostomy (EFJ) was designed. The fistula tract was detached from the abdominal wall and impactedly inserted into a Roux-en-Y jejunal lumen without direct suture of the fistula wall to the jejunal wall...

A gossypiboma is a mass of cotton sponge left in the body postoperatively. Here, we report a case of gossypiboma with bleeding through a fistula to the colon, which became clinically evident 24 years after gynecological surgery, and resembled a bleeding diverticulum at colonoscopy. A 67-year-old woman presented with anemia and hematochezia. She had undergone a hysterectomy for myoma uteri 24 years earlier. Colonoscopy showed a deep depressed lesion mimicking a diverticulum with bleeding in the transverse colon...

Arterioportal fistulas (APFs) are a group of vascular disorders, in which systemic arteries communicate with the portal circulation, presenting as a congenital syndrome or more commonly acquired from iatrogenic instrumentation or abdominal trauma. We report the case of a 58-year-old man who developed ascites without underlying risk factors for portal hypertension, which was attributed to an APF found on imaging, manifesting 43 years after sustaining a liver laceration. After angiographic embolization of the APF, the patient's ascites resolved completely...
