INTRODUCTION: Cor triatriatum is a congenital cardiac anomaly in which the left (sinister) or right (dexter) atrium is divided into two compartments by residual embryonic tissue, resulting in a tri-atrial heart. As cor triatriatum dextrum can present clinically in various ways and have multiple associated cardiac anomalies, this report attempts to contribute to what is known about this exceedingly rare disorder. CASE: A 40 year old Hispanic man with a medical history of gastritis presented with complaints of palpitations, dizziness and bilateral lower extremity edema...

Phosphatidylserine (PS) is asymmetrically distributed across the plasma membrane, located predominantly on the inner leaflet in healthy cells. Translocation of PS to the outer leaflet makes it available as a target for biological therapies. We examined PS translocation after radiosurgery in an animal model of brain arteriovenous malformation (AVM). An arteriovenous fistula was created by end-to-side anastomosis of the left external jugular vein to the common carotid artery in 6-week-old, male Sprague Dawley rats...

BACKGROUND: Fistula-in-ano are classified so as to grade them according to increasing complexity which can help guide their management. The classifications used are Parks, St James Hospital University (SJHU) and Standard Practice Task Force (SPTF). Laying open (fistulotomy) of the fistula tract is the most commonly done procedure for fistula-in-ano and has high success rate. The lower grade fistulas are supposed to have low risk of incontinence when laid open and vice-versa. The objective of the study was to evaluate the efficacy of the existing classifications...

Tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) is an abnormal communication between the trachea and esophagus. Iatrogenic TEF can be due to endotracheal intubation, rigid bronchoscopy or tracheostomy. Tracheostomy tube cuff volumes and pressures require constant monitoring to avoid tracheal injury. Acquired TEF which occurs after prolonged intubation, usually develops after 15-200 days of mechanical ventilation. We report a case of a large TEF secondary to endotracheal intubation for organophosphorus poison-induced respiratory failure...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Symptoms of endometriosis of the urinary tract consist of nonspecific signs that are often trivialized. However, late diagnosis may be responsible for an upstream impact. The aim of this study is to describe a population of patients who received ureterovesical reimplantation for deep infiltrating endometriosis. We evaluate the preoperative clinical and radiological symptoms and long-term surgical outcomes. METHODS: All the endometriotic patients who underwent ureterovesical reimplantation at Lille university hospital between 2003 and 2013 were included retrospectively...

Le Fort I osteotomy is the technique most applied worldwide in the treatment of dentoskeletal deformity involving the maxilla. Even though it is considered a very safe technique with good intra- and postoperative results, many complications have been described. This paper presents a case of carotid jugular fistula developed in a 22-year-old white male submitted to Le Fort I osteotomy for the treatment of anteroposterior maxillary deficiency, and discusses the possible aetiology and management of this serious complication...

The main principles of treatment of external postoperative pancreatic fistulas are viewed in the article. Pancreatic trauma was the reason of pancreatic fistula in 38.7% of the cases, operations because of acute pancreatitis - in 25.8%, and pancreatic pseudocyst drainage - in 35.5%. 93 patients recovered after the treatment. Complex conservative treatment of EPF allowed to close fistulas in 74.2% of the patients with normal patency of the main pancreatic duct (MPD). The usage of octreotide 600-900 mcg daily for at least 5 days to decrease pancreatic secretion was an important part of the conservative treatment...

The incidence and prevalence of foreign body (FB) ingestion are difficult to estimate. Unlike other foreign bodies, the ingestion of a toothpick is very uncommon and carries high morbidity and mortality rates. We report a case of a 73-year-old female patient presenting mid-term epigastric pain. Abdominal ultrasound revealed a slightly dilated common bile duct (CBD) and magnetic resonance showed an irregular filling failure in distal CBD and gallstones. Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography revealed major papilla on the edge of a diverticulum and confirmed the distal filling failure...

Perianal disease, most commonly manifest as fistula or abscess formation, affects up to 40% of patients with Crohn's disease. Perianal Crohn's disease is disabling, associated with poor outcomes, and represents a therapeutic challenge for physicians. Correct diagnosis and classification of perianal disease is the first crucial step for appropriate multidisciplinary management. Areas covered: A literature search was performed of the PubMed database using the terms "transperineal ultrasonography", "transperineal ultrasound", "perianal disease", "perianal fistula", "perianal abscess", "magnetic resonance", "endoanal ultrasonography", "endoscopic ultrasound" in combination with "Crohn's disease"...
