INTRODUCTION: Ogilvie's Syndrome or Acute Colonic Pseudo-Obstruction (ACPO) is a rare condition characterized by massive dilatation of the colon in the absence of mechanical obstruction. About 10% of all reported cases are related to Obstetric and Gynaecological procedures, Caesarean section being the commonest associated factor. Acute intestinal dilatation, if not treated, may lead to perforation and faecal peritonitis with consequent high morbidity and mortality. MATERIALS AND METHODS: An electronic literature searches were performed in PubMed, EMBASE, Google scholar and hand searches for relevant references were included without any language restriction...

The hallmark manifestations of Cushing's syndrome (CS) are well known, but hypercoagulability is perhaps least recognized. Patients with CS are at increased risk of both spontaneous and postoperative thromboembolism, with the significant majority of events occurring in the lower extremity and pulmonary venous circulations. We present a case of portal vein thrombosis (PVT) occurring in the setting of newly diagnosed CS due to a left adrenal adenoma. Factor VIII activity was approximately 2.5-fold elevated, a known mechanism by which hypercortisolemia predisposes to venous thrombosis...

INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy (LSC) has established itself as a safe method for the management of pelvic organ prolapse (POP). Laparoscopic suturing is a time-consuming intraoperative task during LSC. Self-retaining barbed sutures (SBSs) are known to reduce the operative time in laparoscopic cases. The current study aimed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of SBS during the performance of LSC. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty female patients with symptomatic POP were treated with LSC by an expert surgeon...

Secondary graft-oesophageal fistula is a fatal complication of aortic arch replacement. We report a successful two-stage surgical management of a graft-oesophageal fistula seen in a 68-year-old woman 3 years after total aortic arch replacement. She presented with a prolonged intractable fever without haematemesis. The fistula occurred between the distal aortic anastomosis and oesophagus; the entire graft was surrounded by air. In the first-stage operation, we performed re-replacement of the entire infected graft, oesophagectomy with cervical oesophagostomy, omental transfer and cervical routing of the stomach roll, through an extended left thoracotomy incision with sternal transection...

A ruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysm rarely accompanies the aortic and tricuspid valve endocarditis. A 36-year-old woman presented with low-threshold dyspnea on exertion and fever. Transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography showed a ruptured noncoronary sinus of Valsalva aneurysm with large vegetations on the tricuspid and aortic valves, resulting in moderately severe tricuspid regurgitation and severe aortic regurgitation. Blood culture was negative. The patient was initially treated with antibiotics and then subjected to the surgical repair of the sinus of Valsalva aneurysm and the tricuspid and aortic valve replacement...
