INTRODUCTION/OBJECTIVE: Proximal hypospadias is one of the most challenging conditions that pediatric urologists have to deal with. Many procedures have been devised over the years, but nothing has been proven to be the best option. Although there have been some attempts at correcting severe hypospadias in one procedure, most have advocated a staged approach. The classic approach - laying penile skin or a graft within a split glans followed by glanuloplasty at the second stage - by definition requires two operations on the glans...

The gallbladder can be situated in a variety of anomalous positions. An intrahepatic gallbladder - the second most common ectopic location of the gallbladder - is one that is completely embedded within the liver parenchyma. Described in the literature as early as 1935, intrahepatic gallbladders predominantly result from a developmental anomaly but in some instances have been reported to be secondary to chronic inflammation. The significance of an intrahepatic gallbladder lies in the fact that 60% of the cases are associated with gallstones and may present a challenge for the general surgeon during cholecystectomy and other biliary operations in addition to causing misdiagnosis on imaging...

OBJECTIVE: To compare outcomes following surgical repair of genital fistula among Nigerian women with or without HIV. METHODS: A retrospective review was conducted of all genital fistula repair surgeries performed at Evangel Vesicovaginal Fistula Center in Jos, Nigeria, between January 1, 2004, and April 30, 2014. Patient characteristics, HIV status, genital fistula characteristics, and postoperative outcomes were assessed for between-group variance. The odds ratio (OR) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were the primary measures used for determining the association between HIV status and surgical outcomes...

Renal arteriovenous malformation is a rarely encountered disease characterized by the presence of a direct arteriovenous shunt between the renal artery and vein. This nosology was first described by Varela in 1928, and by 1997 the number of such cases amounted to slightly more than 200. Endovascular closure of a fistula seems to be an attractive method of treatment in view of low traumaticity and a short period of rehabilitation. However, as shown by our case report, this type of intervention in large-diameter fistulas may be associated with the development of life-threatening complications...

INTRODUCTION: Cardiovascular and noncardiovascular mortality and morbidity rates of hemodialysis patients are high despite improvement in dialysis delivery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Hemodialysis patients (n = 532) from 9 hemodialysis facilities were enrolled in this cohort study in September 2012. Causes of death, hospitalization, and hemodialysis exit were recorded during a 28-month follow-up period. A Cox proportional hazard model was used to predict death adjusting for case-mix variables, nutrition variables, bone mineral variables, Kt/V, vascular access, and Charlson comorbidities index...

INTRODUCTION: The Enterobacter cloacae is a microorganism found in the intestinal flora of the majority of animals, including humans. Primary infections caused by E. cloacae are rare in immunocompetent patients, but are very common in hospital settings in newborns and immunocompromised patients, and can be aggravated by the insurgence of antibiotic resistance. The incidence of periprosthetic hip infections is just below 2%. CASE PRESENTATION: A 76year old woman with multiple comorbidities underwent surgical implantation of intermediary total hip prosthesis of the left hip, in a different health facility, in February 2014, after the basicervical fracture of the upper femur extremity due to trauma...

BACKGROUND: Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are commonly used analgesic and anti-inflammatory adjuncts. NSAID administration may potentially increase the risk of postoperative gastrointestinal anastomotic failure (AF). We aim to determine if perioperative NSAID utilization influences gastrointestinal anastomotic failure in emergency general surgery (EGS) patients undergoing gastrointestinal resection and anastomosis. METHODS: Post hoc analysis of a multi-institutional prospectively collected database was performed...

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) exacerbating vascular disease poses a major challenge to nephrology. Surgically placed vascular fistulas, as an aid to hemodialysis prior to kidney transplant, have extended many lives, while post-surgical restenosis closure of the fistula by smooth muscle cells affects many lives. When post-surgical restenosis is developed, palliative measures are almost always surgical: there are no effective drug treatments. In this study, we offer a testable hypothesis that effects of CKD on widely distributed vascular diseases and the phenomenon of fistula restenosis are both driven by the pathologic creation of non-dividing smooth muscle cells via asymmetric division of exponentially increasing metakaryotic stem cells...

INTRODUCTION: Insomnia, muscular cramps, pruritus and postdialysis recovery time (RT) are quality-of-life parameters that affect hemodialysis (HD) patients physically and mentally. METHODS: We included 171 end-stage renal disease patients: 115 on high-flux HD and 56 on online hemodiafiltration (HDF). Patients were asked "How long does it take you to recover from a dialysis session?" and they evaluated intensity (absent, mild, medium and severe) of insomnia, muscular cramps and pruritus in the past 4 weeks...

A vascular access (VA) is used to facilitate hemodialysis in patients that suffer from end-stage renal disease. However, they suffer from high failure rates due to non-maturation and venous stenosis, with intimal hyperplasia (IH) the underlying cause of both conditions. Abnormal hemodynamic profiles, which arise following VA creation, are believed to lead to the development of IH. However, the exact physiological response that initiates this process is unknown. This review evaluates the different hemodynamic parameters that are hypothesised to correlate with the development of IH...

BACKGROUND: Inguinal lymph node dissection (LND) is a surgical procedure with a high morbidity rate. Variations in surgical procedure, such as sparing of the saphenous vein, have been proposed to reduce surgical morbidity. While sparing of the saphenous vein has shown promising results in earlier studies, data for this procedure in melanoma patients are rare. In this retrospective study, we report 10-year findings on the effects of saphenous vein-sparing LND on surgical morbidity and oncologic outcomes in melanoma patients...

Primary intraventricular haemorrhage (PIVH) is rare. Dural arteriovenous fistula causing PIVH is extremely rare. We report a case of a 17 year old boy who presented with left hemiparesis, left lower motor neuron facial palsy and ataxia. His computed tomography head revealed primary intraventricular hemorrhage. Catheter super selective angiography revealed a dural arterio venous fistula with arterial feeder arising from the middle meningeal artery as well as from the inferior marginal tentorial artery. Glue injection led to successful disappearance of the fistula and eventual clinical recovery...
