Jacob Lentz, Maria A Tobar, Caleb P Canders
BACKGROUND: Spilled gallstones are common during laparoscopic cholecystectomy; however, they rarely lead to postoperative complications. Perihepatic abscesses develop in < 0.1% of patients with spilled gallstones and are typically contained within the peritoneal cavity. CASE REPORT: We present a 57-year-old man with history of cholecystectomy 2 years prior who presented with cough and flank pain and was discovered to have a perihepatic abscess invading his lung and kidney secondary to a spilled gallstone...

BACKGROUND: Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome is defined as perihepatitis associated with pelvic inflammatory disease. Chlamydia trachomatis is one of its most common aetiologies. This syndrome usually presents with right upper quadrant abdominal pain mimicking other hepatobiliary and gastrointestinal pathologies, hence, posing a diagnostic dilemma in settings with limited diagnostic tools. CASE REPORT: A 32 year old African female presented with acute right upper quadrant abdominal pain and vaginal discharge, for which she had previously received treatment in another health center with no improvement...

BACKGROUND Liver allograft trauma resulting in subcapsular hematoma after living donor liver transplantation (LDLT), although rare, is a life-threatening condition and requires prompt management to avoid any catastrophe. Herein we describe our successful experience in dealing with liver allograft hematoma that developed in the post-operative period after LDLT. MATERIAL AND METHODS From January 2002 to May 2015, a total of 616 recipients underwent LDLT at our institute. The intra-operative and postoperative records of these patients were analyzed to study the cases of liver allograft hematoma...

Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is an ascending infection of the female genital tract caused by the spread of bacteria from the vagina to the pelvic reproductive organs and occasionally the peritoneum. The most common causative organisms are sexually transmitted. PID is a significant source of morbidity among reproductive age women both as a cause of abdominal pain and as a common cause of infertility. Its clinical presentation is often nonspecific, and the correct diagnosis may first come to light based on the results of imaging studies...

Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome (FHCS) is a condition characterized by inflammation of the liver capsule (perihepatitis) and adjacent peritoneal surfaces. We report a case of FHCS developing in a peritoneal dialysis (PD) patient in whom catheter removal due to recurrent peritonitis was complicated by post-operative wound infection. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case description of FHCS in the context of PD.

Spontaneous bladder rupture (SBR) is a rare but life-threatening condition. Its diagnosis is challenging; symptoms might present solely as ascites during onset or with features of frank peritonitis. When SBR causes peritonitis, arterial perihepatic enhancement can be detected on a contrast computed tomography scan. SBR should be suspected when patients have acute abdominal pain and risk factors including previous pelvic irradiation, urethral catheterization, and binge alcohol drinking. We present the first case report of arterial perihepatic enhancement due to SBR...

BACKGROUND: Severe blunt hepatic injury is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in pediatric patients. Damage control (DC) surgery has been reported to be useful in severely compromised children with hepatic injury. We applied such a technique in the treatment of a case of hemodynamically unstable grade IV blunt hepatic injury in an eight-year-old girl. This case is the first to use multimodal approaches including perihepatic packing, temporary closure of the abdominal wall with a plastic sheet, transarterial embolization (TAE), and planned delayed anatomical hepatic resection in a child...

: We studied whether antibody to two chlamydial proteins (TroA and HtrA) could be used as biomarkers of Chlamydia trachomatis infection. METHODS: Recombinant proteins C. trachomatis TroA and HtrA were used as antigens in enzyme immunoassay (EIA). Both IgG and IgA antibody responses were studied. RESULTS: IgG or IgA antibody to either protein was infrequently detected in sera from healthy blood donors or virgin girls. Patients attending the STI Clinic and patients with perihepatitis had often IgG antibody against TroA (25 and 50 % respectively) and HtrA (21 and 38 % respectively)...

For the last 20 years, nonoperative management (NOM) of blunt hepatic trauma (BHT) has been the initial policy whenever this is possible (80% of cases), i.e., in all cases where the hemodynamic status does not demand emergency laparotomy. NOM relies upon the coexistence of three highly effective treatment modalities: radiology with contrast-enhanced computerized tomography (CT) and hepatic arterial embolization, intensive care surveillance, and finally delayed surgery (DS). DS is not a failure of NOM management but rather an integral part of the surgical strategy...

BACKGROUND: Surgical resection is the only cure for hepato-pancreato-biliary (HPB) malignancy. In the era of multidisciplinary approaches and neoadjuvant therapies for locally advanced, borderline resectable tumors, the feasibility and efficacy of en bloc vascular resection has been validated across multiple studies. However, the variability of venous anatomy within the perihepatic and peri-portal regions necessitates familiarity with alternative resection and reconstruction techniques appropriate to the specific region of tumor invasion...
