About 2.8% of patients develop small bowel obstruction, mostly following an open approach appendectomy. CASE REPORT: we present an 18-year-old girl with acute abdomen 10 days following laparoscopic appendectomy. An emergency laparotomy was performed which revealed bowel necrosis and an impacted slipped clip on the mesenterial side of the bowel with signs of bowel strangulation and necrosis. Bowel resection was carried out with primary enteroenteric anastomosis. We suspect the sharp ends of the open clip allowed it to become lodged in the bowel segment resulting in bowel obstruction and subsequent necrosis...

BACKGROUND: Acute appendicitis is a common pediatric surgical emergency; however, there are few grading systems to assign disease severity. The American Association for the Surgery of Trauma (AAST) recently developed a grading system for a variety of emergency surgical conditions, including appendicitis. The severity of acute appendicitis in younger patients in KwaZulu-Natal (South Africa) is unknown. We aimed to describe the disease severity in this patient population using the AAST grading system hypothesizing that the AAST grade would correlate with morbidity, management type, and duration of stay...

BACKGROUND: We have performed laparoscopic totally extraperitoneal (TEP) repair for inguinal hernia repair for the last 20 years. We use two balloon dilators (sphere and kidney type) to dissect the preperitoneal space for the TEP repair. It may be difficult to obtain exposure in patients who previously underwent lower abdominal surgery, because of adhesions to the abdominal wall. We reviewed our experience with inguinal hernia repairs to retrospectively analyze factors that limit the laparoscopic TEP approach...

Diverticulitis of the vermiform appendix is a rare disease with clinical features often similar to conventional acute appendicitis. The importance of appendiceal diverticulosis is the fact that it can lead to an early and a higher incidence of perforation and therefore a higher mortality rate, in contrast to acute appendicitis alone. In this study we present the clinicopathology, diagnosis and therapy of the disease with a review of the literature. A 65-year-old woman presented to the emergency department with a 48-hour history of intermittent pain in the right iliac fossa...

BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive surgical techniques (MISTs) could have tremendous benefits in resource-poor environment. There is growing interest in MISTs in most low- and middle-income countries (LMIC), but its adoption has remained limited; this is largely due to high cost of the initial setup, lack of technological backup and limited access to training among others. An affordable laparoscopic setup will go a long way in improving access to MISTs. METHODS: A common zero degrees 10 mm scope is attached on the camera of a low-price smartphone...

Approximately 15% of colorectal cancer (CRC) cases exhibit microsatellite instability (MSI), which appears to be associated with unique biological behavior. The present study presents a case of appendiceal carcinoma associated with MSI that responded well to adjuvant chemotherapy. Clinical, pathological and immunohistochemical (IHC) characteristics have been described. The 60-year-old male patient had suffered from recurrent lower abdominal pain associated with abdominal distention for 6 months; then, following an acute attack, he was subjected to laparoscopic appendectomy...

INTRODUCTION: An inguinal hernia with an incarcerated appendix is defined as Amyand's hernia, and it is relatively rare. Amyand's hernia complicated with appendicitis, especially perforated appendicitis, is even rarer. Postoperative surgical site infection (SSI) is a dangerous complication, especially in Amyand's hernia with appendix perforation. The selection of an appropriate surgical approach is necessary to prevent postoperative SSI. Here, we report a case of Amyand's hernia complicated with appendix perforation that was successfully managed using a two-stage surgical approach consisting of laparoscopic appendectomy followed by elective inguinal hernioplasty...

INTRODUCTION: Goblet cell carcinoid (GCC) is an extraordinarily rare appendiceal tumor that is usually an incidental diagnosis on post-operative histology. It typically presents in the fifth or sixth decade of life. Our patient is the only reported case study of GCC in a pediatric-young adult. Due to its potentially poor prognosis, GCC is surgically treated as an adenocarcinoma, with right hemicolectomy as the mainstay of treatment. PRESENTATION OF CASE: The patient was a 20-year-old male who presented with a history, physical exam, and work up consistent with acute appendicitis...

Background: Acute appendicitis (AA) is the most common surgical disease, and appendectomy is the treatment of choice in the majority of cases. A correct diagnosis is key for decreasing the negative appendectomy rate. The management can become difficult in case of complicated appendicitis. The aim of this study is to describe the worldwide clinical and diagnostic work-up and management of AA in surgical departments. Methods: This prospective multicenter observational study was performed in 116 worldwide surgical departments from 44 countries over a 6-month period (April 1, 2016-September 30, 2016)...

BACKGROUND: Enterobius vermicularis (EV) is the most common helminthic infection in the world. This small parasite is predominant in the pediatric population. The presence of EV in the appendix can cause or mimick appendicitis. The aim of our study was to compare patients with EV infection and those without EV infection, and to identify predictive factors that may help the diagnosis of EV infection in patients presenting with right iliac fossa pain and avoid negative appendectomy. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of all the appendices removed between January 2012 and December 2016 was conducted at the department of pediatric surgery, Hedi Chaker Hospital, Sfax, Tunisia...

We report a case of appendicitis with an abscess that was treated with single-incision laparoscopic ileocecal resection with D2 lymphadenectomy because of intraoperative suspicion of appendiceal cancer. A 73-year-old woman was admitted to the hospital because of right lower abdominal pain. She was diagnosed with appendicitis with an abscess. Although single-incision laparoscopic appendectomy was planned, appendiceal cancer was suspected from intraoperative findings. Therefore, we performed single-incision laparoscopic ileocecal resection with D2 lymphadenectomy...

Introduction: Appendectomy is still the most commonly performed intra-abdominal operation worldwide. Interestingly, it has not reached the same popularity as other laparoscopic surgical procedures. Although multiple techniques have been described, a standard approach has not been described for the laparoscopic technique yet. Aim: To perform hybrid appendectomy for acute appendicitis on McBurney's point, aiming to perform an easier and quicker procedure while limiting the trauma to the abdominal wall by obtaining the advantages of both laparoscopic and open techniques...

A 37-year-old female patient, 57 kg and 160 cm, underwent laparoscopic appendectomy. In the recovery room, fentanyl 100 mcg was intravenously administered for pain control. Three minutes after the administration, the patient developed intense and uncontrolled myoclonus, lower limb rigidity, agitation, aphasia, and periocular and neck swelling. The myoclonus and rigidity were suspected to be due to the opioid administration, and thus, naloxone was administered, but the symptoms were not improved. The patient's symptoms continued until the patient received administration of physostigmine...
