  • Cholecystitis secondary to gallbladder torsion - A rare case report. [Journal Article]
  • IJInt J Surg Case Rep 2018; 46:13-15

  • CONCLUSIONS: The cause of gallbladder torsion are thought to be due to underlying anatomical variations or loss of elasticity associated with aging. Diagnosis is difficult clinically and radiologically, however, features such as "whirl sign" and "cystic duct knot sign" have been described. Due to ischemia associated with torsion, clinical vigilance and early intervention is recommended to prevent potential fatal sequelae particularly in the elderly population.Gallbladder torsion is a rare finding that can be difficult to diagnose clinically, we are hoping to promote awareness to prevent complications associated with delayed therapy.
  • Acute acalculous cholecystitis: A new safety risk for patients with MS treated with alemtuzumab. [Journal Article]
  • NeurNeurology 2018 May 01; 90(18):e1548-e1552
  • Croteau D, Flowers C, … Kortepeter CM
  • CONCLUSIONS: AAC represents a new and potentially life-threatening adverse event associated with alemtuzumab use in relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis. In cases seen to date, early and conservative treatment resulted in good clinical outcome, although the natural history of AAC in this population without critical illness is not well defined. Awareness of this safety risk by general and specialty neurologists is important for prompt recognition and optimal management.
