  • Posterior urethral valve and anterior rectal duplication: a new combination. [Journal Article]
    BMJ Case Rep 2019; 12(7)Bhandarkar KP, Bouhadiba N, Garriboli M
  • We present a rare case of association of anterior rectal duplication and posterior urethral valve (PUV). A term neonate with no antenatal concerns was admitted with urosepsis and acute renal injury at 18 days of age. History revealed a poor urinary stream and dribbling. After resuscitation and stabilisation, renal tract ultrasound and micturating cysto-urethrogram were performed. Cystourethroscop…
  • Surgical management for an infected urachal cyst in an adult: Case report and literature review. [Journal Article]
    Int J Surg Case Rep 2019; 57:130-133Elkbuli A, Kinslow K, … Boneva D
  • CONCLUSIONS: Surgical excision of urachal anomalies in adults is curative and preventive against recurrent infection and malignancy, but preoperative management is currently unstandardized. Current literature recommends a two-stage approach characterized by preoperative antibiotics and cyst incision and drainage followed later by complete surgical excision. Our patient underwent a single therapeutic approach with preoperative antibiotics and definitive operative excision. Our patient had a comparable outcome with no complications and a short hospitalization.Preoperative antibiotics with excision of urachal remnants was effective in our case. Staged approaches are appropriate in complicated cases as a means to reduce post-operative infection rates and hospital stays. Urachal remnant excision is recommended in adults to prevent future malignancy.
  • Spontaneous Acute Subdural Hematoma Associated with Arachnoid Cyst and Intra-cystic Hemorrhage. [Case Reports]

  • Arachnoid cysts (ACs) are congenital, extra-axial lesions containing fluid similar to the composition of cerebrospinal fluid. Usually found incidentally, these lesions are observed with serial imaging to document their growth patterns and stability, and are then followed conservatively until clinical symptoms develop. Surgical options for symptomatic arachnoid cysts include cyst aspiration, cyst …
