Abdominal wall repair frequently utilizes either non-degradable or bio-degradable meshes, which are found to stimulate undesirable biological tissue responses or which possess suboptimal degradation rate. In this study, a biologic mesh prototype made from carbodiimide-cross-linked cholecyst-derived extracellular matrix (EDCxCEM) was compared with small intestinal submucosa (Surgisis®), cross-linked bovine pericardium (Peri-Guard®), and polypropylene (Prolene®) meshes in an in vivo rabbit model. The macroscopic appearance and stereological parameters of the meshes were evaluated...

Schwannoma is a rare tumor that develops from the Schwann cells in the nerve sheath. A 42 years old woman was found incidentally to have a bulky mass in epigastric region. Abdominal ultrasonography CT and MRI have been of aid to know the position and size of the tumor. A massive capsulated retroperitoneal lesion was identified. It moved forward the hepatoduodenal ligament, inferior vena cava laterally and aorta medially. The mass is exte-riorized and detached from adhesions. There were no complications after the operation and the patient was discharged on the fourth post-operative day...

OBJECTIVE: Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a permanent dilation of the abdominal aorta associated with rupture, which frequently results in fatal consequences. AAA tissue is commonly characterized by localized structural deterioration accompanied with inflammation and profound accumulation of leukocytes, although the specific function of these cells is unknown. Cilostazol, a phosphodiesterase III inhibitor, is commonly used for patients with peripheral vascular disease or stroke because of its anti-inflammatory effect, which is vasoprotective effects through its anti-inflammatory effect...

Lungs are the most common extra‑abdominal site of metastasis of colorectal cancer (CRC), in which long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) may serve a role. In the present study, a high‑throughput microarray assay was performed to detect lncRNA expression and identify novel targets for further study of lung metastasis in CRC. In the CRC tissues from patients with lung metastasis, 7,632 lncRNA (3,574 upregulated and 4,058 downregulated) and 6,185 mRNA (3,394 upregulated and 2,791 downregulated) were detected to be differentially expressed with a fold change ≥2 and P<0...

BACKGROUND: Peritoneal adhesions are nonanatomical connections that bind organs to the abdominal wall or among them. They arise after peritoneal injury, which triggers an inflammatory response followed by a healing process that leads to fibrotic tissue formation. Mesenchymal stem cells and their secretion products, also referred to as acellular derivatives (ACDs), have anti-inflammatory, fibrinolytic, and antifibrogenic properties. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of intraoperative administration of ACD on the appearance, severity, and progression of peritoneal adhesions, in an animal model...

BACKGROUND: Diverticulitis can lead to localized or generalized peritonitis and consequently induce abdominal adhesion formation. If adhesions would lead to abdominal complaints, it might be expected that these would be more prominent after operation for perforated diverticulitis with peritonitis than after elective sigmoid resection. AIMS: The primary outcome of the study was the incidence of abdominal complaints in the long-term after acute and elective surgery for diverticulitis...

BACKGROUND: The sliding sign (the relative motion between the abdominal and uterine wall as assessed by ultrasonography) may help identify severe intra-abdominal adhesions before repeat cesarean delivery. METHODS: We conducted a prospective observational study of scheduled repeat cesarean deliveries. Using transabdominal ultrasonography, while the parturient breathed deeply, the ultrasonographer recorded a video clip in a sagittal plane lateral to the umbilicus...

Colorectal cancer is very common worldwide and advanced colorectal cancer exhibited very poor clinical outcome. Oxaliplatin (OXP) is one of the principal chemotherapeutic agents in colorectal cancer treatment presenting impressive anti-tumor ability, limited by adverse effect in clinical practice. Fibrin glue (FG) is a biocompatible formulation made of fibrinogen and thrombin, extensively used in surgery for hemostasis, tissue adhesion and sealing. In this study, FG was innovatively applied as OXP delivery system and results showed enhanced anti-tumor performance in subcutaneous model and abdominal metastasis model of murine colorectal cancer compared with that of OXP used alone...

REVIEW
Shashikant L Sholapurkar
There is an increasing incidence of cesarean scar (CS) defect/niche and its sequelae, probably not entirely explained by better diagnosis or rising cesarean rate. Discussion of possible etiological factors has received scant attention but would be important to formulate preventive strategies. Meaningful informative studies on long-term sequelae of cesarean section are very difficult and none are available for causation of CS defect. Hence, it is crucial to identify key areas in etiology of CS defect for focused research...

Chilaiditi's sign is a radiological finding that occurs when the small or large intestine is positioned superior to the liver in the sub-diaphragmatic space. This is typically an asymptomatic radiological sign, but when symptoms occur, e.g., abdominal pain, nausea, emesis, it is termed Chilaiditi's syndrome. Currently, majority of the cases of Chilaiditi's syndrome, described in the literature, requiring operative intervention are due to large bowel obstruction or colonic volvulus. The following is a single case report of a patient presenting to Keesler Medical Center in Biloxi, Mississippi...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Peritonisation of mesh during Abdominal sacrocolpopexy is generally advocated to prevent adhesions to the viscera; however, randomized clinical trials are lacking. In this study; we aimed to investigate whether the mesh peritonisation is clinically significant or not. MATERIAL METHOD: Thirty-four patients who were operated for the reason of pelvic organ prolapse were included in the study. Patients were divided into two groups by retrospective scanning from the files and surgical reports...

BACKGROUND Primary small bowel cancer is a rare malignancy; the common histopathological types are carcinoid and adenocarcinoma. Inflammatory bowel diseases and familial adenomatous polyposis are known risk factors for small bowel cancer. Additionally, cases of surgery-induced small bowel adenocarcinoma are sometimes reported after ileostomy. CASE REPORT A 84-year-old woman, who had undergone ileotransversostomy for intestinal obstruction due to postoperative adhesion following appendectomy at the age of 31 years, was referred to our hospital for further examination after experiencing abdominal pain in the right lower quadrant for 2 weeks...

Laparoscopic total gastrectomy(LTG)is one of the most increasing surgeries among gastric cancer surgery. Although LTG has many advantages on the patient, we should be more careful of its specific complications. Here we report a case of 72- year-old man with the complaint of severe acute upper abdominal pain due to strangulation ileus caused by incarcerated esophageal hiatal hernia(EHH)after LTG. Emergent operation has performed on the patient and total 180 cm length of necrotic small intestine was resected...

RATIONALE: Gastrointestinal carcinoma is rare during pregnancy. It is usually diagnosed at an advanced stage because special gastrointestinal symptoms are generally overlooked during pregnancy, and there are many limitations and contraindications for using diagnostic tools during pregnancy. PATIENT CONCERNS: We present a case of a 29-year-old patient with 27 weeks and 5 days of gestation due to massive ascites and hydrothorax. DIAGNOSES: The patient was diagnosed with an advanced gastrointestinal cancer...

Primary small intestinal volvulus is defined as torsion in the absence of congenital malrotation, band, or postoperative adhesions. Its occurrence as an early postoperative complication is rare. A 40-year-old woman presented with rectal prolapse, and laparoscopic rectopexy was uneventfully performed. She could not have food on the day after surgery. She started oral intake on postoperative day 3 but developed abdominal pain after the meal. Contrast-enhanced CT revealed torsion of the small intestinal mesentery...
