Background: Nephron-sparing surgery has been shown to achieve oncological results equivalent to those of radical nephrectomy in patients with compromised renal function who have renal tumors <4 cm. However, technical difficulties and potential surgical complications remain challenges to the surgeon. Various factors, such as tumor size and location, collecting system invasion, and patient's expectations, are major concerns that may affect the feasibility of performing an effective partial nephrectomy. We report a patient with renal cell carcinoma who underwent open partial nephrectomy and suffered from complications of perirenal abscess because of stone migration, obstruction, and subsequence urine leakage...

Pyogenic hepatic abscess (PHA) is a rare, but potentially serious disease. At present, ultrasound-guided or computed tomography-guided percutaneous needle aspiration or catheter drainage is appropriate as a first-line treatment. However, it is difficult to aspirate or drain pus and to select the appropriate antibiotic therapy if the abscess consists of thick pus and polymicrobial confections, or its pathogenic bacterium is multidrug resistant and cryptogenic. Case studies of alcoholization provide a novel method to manage PHA...

Endometriosis is defined by the presence of ectopic endometrial tissue outside the uterine cavity. Although it is a leading cause of chronic pelvic pain and infertility, its clinical presentation can vary, resulting in diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. Extrapelvic endometriosis is particularly difficult to diagnose owing to its ability to mimic other conditions. Endometrial tissue in a surgical scar is uncommon and often misdiagnosed as a granuloma, abscess, or malignancy. Cyclical hemorrhagic ascites due to peritoneal endometriosis is exceptionally rare...

Pneumothorax secondary to septic pulmonary embolism (SPE) is rare but life-threatening. We herein report a long-term hemodialysis patient with psoas abscess caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, associated with other muscle and splenic abscesses and SPE. Intravenous vancomycin treatment and percutaneous drainage of the psoas abscess rapidly improved her condition. However, the SPE lesions continued to increase, and right-sided pneumothorax occurred 10 days after treatment. The pneumothorax resolved after two months and SPE and all abscesses after four months of treatment...

We describe a case of right ilio-psoas abscess caused by stump appendicitis 14 years after open appendectomy. Stump appendicitis is a rare complication of appendectomy. Right ilio-psoas abscess was diagnosed in an immune-competent patient and treated by ultrasound guided percutaneous drainage twice without identifying the cause of the abscess. The patient did not improve until diagnostic laparoscopy was performed revealing a long stump appendicitis to be the origin of infection. It was treated by completion appendectomy...

We performed this study to develop an understanding of why patients were readmitted after appendectomy for perforated appendicitis. Patients who required surgery for perforated appendicitis during a recent five-year period were identified. We recorded the demographic data, length of symptoms, length of stay, vital signs, laboratory findings, surgical approach, length of surgery, time to readmission, length of readmission, and intervention required after readmission. We divided the cohort into two groups depending on whether the patient was readmitted...
