We experienced two cases of spontaneous rupture of the urinary bladder associated with radiation cystitis. Case 1 and Case 2 were a 45-year-old female and a 71-year-old female, respectively. Both of them were admitted to our hospital with complaints of high grade fever and severe lower abdominal pain. They had a past history of total hysterectomy followed by radiationtherapy more than10 years ago. The cystography and the subsequent computed tomography revealed spontaneous rupture of the urinary bladder. We performed the operationto repair the perforationsite with omentum covering...

A 52-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital for acute right hemi-paresis, left homonymous hemianopia, and fever. Magnetic resonance imaging of the brain showed multiple cerebral infarctions and transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) revealed a vegetation on the posterior leaflet of her mitral valve. Mitral valve repair was performed under a diagnosis of infective endocarditis (IE). Further multiple cerebral infarctions occurred on the 11th postoperative day, resulting in left hemiplegia and dysarthria...

A previously healthy 52-year-old man presented to our department with remitting and relapsing fever for more than 6 weeks. During complex staged work-up, we revealed that he suffered from an Abiotrophia defectiva endocarditis of the mitral valve with mitral regurgitation and vegetation requiring mitral valve replacement. He recovered well postoperatively and is currently being followed at our Outpatient Cardiology Clinic.

A previously healthy 3-year-old boy presented to the emergency department with abdominal pain, fever, and emesis. Laboratory and radiologic evaluation for causes of acute abdomen were negative; however, review of the abdominal x-ray demonstrated cardiomegaly with the subsequent diagnosis of pericardial cyst by echocardiogram and computed tomography. The patient underwent surgical decompression and attempted removal of the cystic structure revealing that the cyst originated from the epicardium. His abdominal pain and fever resolved postoperatively and he completed a 3-week course of ceftriaxone for treatment of Propionibacterium acnes infected congenital epicardial cyst...

OBJECTIVE: To define clinical features of surgical patients in whom postoperative blood cultures are likely to identify pathogens. BACKGROUND: Bacteremia is a worrisome postoperative complication and blood cultures (BCx) are routinely used for evaluation of postoperative bacteremia, but are costly and not always diagnostic. Better methods are needed to select patients in whom BCx identify pathogens. METHODS: We reviewed records of patients ≥18 years old with BCx drawn ≤10 days after surgery in 2013 seeking independent predictors of positive cultures by simple and multiple logistic regression models with statistical significance at α = 0...

Cancer of uterine cervix is one of the most common malignancies in women. Metastatic recurrence of cervical cancer in spleen is rare, mostly seen in autopsies. Splenic metastasis from cervical cancer in a living patient without disseminated metastases is rarer. Here, we present the case of a lady aged 46 years with cervical cancer-squamous cell carcinoma-who had undergone radical hysterectomy and postoperative 50 Gy of intensity modulated radiation therapy in 25 fractions and 50 mg of weekly cisplatin for 6 weeks...

BACKGROUND: Recurrent fever syndrome, known as the Marshall syndrome (MS), is a clinical entity that includes several clinical features, such as: fever (39-40°C) that occurs repeatedly at variable intervals (3-8 weeks) and in episodes of 3 to 6 days, cervical adenopathy, pharyngitis, and aphthous stomatitis. The diagnosis of MS is one of exclusions; laboratory data is nonspecific and no abnormalities correlated with MS have been detected thus far. METHODS: The authors report the case of a 2-year-old girl admitted to a tertiary pediatric center for repeated episodes of fever with aphthous stomatitis and laterocervical adenopathy...

BACKGROUND: Ear discharge (otorrhoea) is common in children with grommets (ventilation/tympanostomy tubes); the proportion of children developing discharge ranges from 25% to 75%. The most common treatment strategies include oral broad-spectrum antibiotics, antibiotic eardrops or those containing a combination of antibiotic(s) and a corticosteroid, and initial observation. Important drivers for one strategy over the other are concerns over the side effects of oral antibiotics and the potential ototoxicity of antibiotic eardrops...

PURPOSE: We evaluated the efficacy of ultrasonography (US) in the early postoperative period after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) to diagnose postoperative-pancreatic-fistula (POPF). Early diagnosis is important to prevent POPF-dependent mortality after PD. The value of radiological modalities for early diagnosing POPF is not clear. METHODS: Forty-five patients who underwent transabdominal-US in the first postoperative week after PD were retrospectively evaluated...

OBJECTIVE: Despite advances in surgical technique in abdominal surgery, incisional complications are frequently reported following ventral midline laparotomy in horses. The aim of this study was to determine the incidence of incisional complications at our clinic and to identify possible risk factors. Furthermore, we investigated whether suturing the peritoneum leads to a reduction of incisional complications. MATERIAL AND METHODS: In this retrospective study, records of patients of the Large Animal Clinic for Surgery of the University of Leipzig from January 2010 to December 2015 were analysed...

BACKGROUND: Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death due to gynecologic malignancy and the fifth most common cause of cancer deaths in developed countries. Recent evidence has indicated that the most common and lethal form of ovarian cancer originates in the distal fallopian tube, and recommendations for surgical removal of the fallopian tube (bilateral salpingectomy) at the time of other gynecologic surgeries (particularly hysterectomy and tubal sterilization) have been made, most recently by the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists...

BACKGROUND: It is unclear when routine workup of postoperative pyrexia (POP) following total joint arthroplasty (TJA) should be performed. METHODS: A retrospective electronic database search was conducted on 25,558 consecutive patients undergoing primary or revision TJA between June 2001 and June 2013. We identified patient demographics, procedure type, characteristics of feverish patients, and febrile complications. The estimated costs for chest x-ray (CXR), urinalysis, urine culture, and blood culture were investigated...

The most common cardiovascular presentation of brucellosis (a zoonotic infection) in Iran is aortic valve endocarditis. Brucellosis is a systemic infection and may involve any congenital heart defect with various clinical signs and symptoms. We report brucella endocarditis in an atrial septal defect (ASD) in a 55-year-old man who presented with fever and hemiplegia. Echocardiography showed a secundum ASD with large vegetations of 0.5×1 cm arising from the rim of the ASD. Serological analysis was positive for Brucella agglutinin, thus confirming the diagnosis...

The patient was admitted to the Department of Cardiac Surgery of the J. Struś City Hospital in Poznan due to infective endocarditis involving the aortic, mitral, and tricuspid valves. Implantation of three biological valve prostheses proceeded without complications. Starting on day 23, the patient's general condition deteriorated, with high fever. Despite postoperative antibiotic therapy, transesophageal echocardiography revealed the presence of vegetation on the bioprosthetic aortic valve. On the 46(th) day after the initial surgery, the patient required replacement of the aortic bioprosthesis, which exhibited the presence of numerous vegetations...

An 81-year-old man underwent total gastrectomy with Roux-en-Y reconstruction for cardiac cancer in our department. He developed high fever on postoperative day 3, and pathological examination showed WBC and CRP level of 12,000/mL and 29.983mg/dL, respectively. A diagnosis of anastomotic leakage was confirmed using enhanced abdominal CT scanning that demonstrated free air around the esophagojejunalanastomosis after totalgastrectomy. The drainage tube was replaced by a 12 Fr sump tube because of leakage on postoperative day 10...
