Gangliocytic paraganglioma is an uncommon tumor, which is usually located in the ampulla of Vater, and may get confused in the differential diagnosis with ampuloma or GIST. Here we present a case of a patient with upper gastrointestinal bleeding as a predominant symptom, objectified by endoscopy an ulcerative polypoid mass at the juxtapilar level, with histological result of gangliocítica paraganglioma after multiple biopsies, and finally surgical resection. The interest of this case is the difficulty for diagnosing, the different treatments and prognosis that this implies, especially for the tumor location, as surgery can lead to great complications...

Small intestinal dysplastic lesions are rare and difficult to detect before they progress to cancer. New investigative modalities, such as capsule endoscopy and doubleballoon enteroscopy, are very promising in search for premalignant lesions. Screening patients at high-risk for small bowel neoplasia is the only sensible approach. Duodenal adenoma represents the most easily accessible tumors with the possibility of curative endoscopic resection. Due to the strong association of the small bowel and colonic adenomas, it is always necessary to perform colonoscopy...

UNLABELLED: Abdominal surgery of patients aged over 75 is a real challenge, regarding the risk-benefit ratio, especially in emergency cases. The aim of the study was to assess the mortality in elderly patients admitted for abdominal surgical conditions. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A retrospective study was carried out on a series of 111 patients aged over 75 that died during hospitalization for abdominal diseases in the 3rd Surgical Unit during the period 2007-2010. Data from the medical files, operating books and pathology reports were collected and analyzed...

The frequency of upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage as a postoperative complication of cephalic duodenopancreatectomy remained constant for decades despite the overall decrease in the incidence of mortality occuring after cephalic duodeno-pancreatomy. It is the second most common complication after anastomotic fistulas, but more frequently fatal, especially when the pancreas is anastomosed with the stomach. The case presented here is of a patient of 55 years age, diagnosed in our clinic with vaterian ampuloma for which was performed cephalic duodenopancreatectomy and gastrointestinal and hepatobiliary continuity was restored by performing terminolateral pancreato-gastric anastomosis, termino-lateral hepato-jejunal anatomosis and termino-lateral gastro-jejunal anastomosis on a jejunal loop ascended transmezocolic...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: Sudden death is not uncommon in patients with severe congestive heart failure. The aim of our study was to assess the incidence, mechanisms and clinical predictors of sudden death in a large series of patients with severe congestive heart failure evaluated for heart transplantation. METHODS: With this aim we have reviewed our experience on 240 consecutive patients with severe heart failure studied in our hospital from May 1986 to June 1992...

A total of 134 cases are discussed, with suppurated acute obstructive angiocholitis, that underwent surgical treatment over a period of 10 years, representing 12,8% of the total number of organic obstructions of the hepato-choledocus. From the standpoint of the etiopathogenic mechanisms the angiocholitis was determined by biliary lithiasis in 59 cases, by sclerosis of the Oddi sphincter in 5 cases, by postoperative cicatriceal stenosis of the main biliary pathway in 2 cases, by hepatic hydatitosis in 16 cases, by Vater ampuloma in 10 cases by cancers of the main biliary pathway in 40 cases and by the congenital cyst of the choledocus in one case...

The files were studied of 362 patients hospitalized in the Surgical Clinic from Tg. Mureş in the last 20 years with various primary or secondary pancreatic affections, and for whom curative, palliative or exploratory surgery was indicated. Of the total 307 had pancreatic cancers, 16 had Vater ampulomas, 23 had gastric cancers, and 5 had primary duodenal tumours. In six patients pseudotumoral chronic pancreatitis was found, 2 had retroperitoneal tumours, and 3 had pancreatic cysts, lymphoma of the spleen, and mesenteric tumour...
