  • A Technical Tip of Aortic Stump Reinforcement with Plication of the Falciform Ligament of the Liver. [Journal Article]
    Ann Vasc Surg. 2020 May 13 [Online ahead of print]Moulakakis KG, Koliakos N, … Lazaris AM
  • CONCLUSIONS: We presented an innovative technique in which we used the falciform ligament of the liver to reinforce the aortic stump after excision of an infected aortobiiliac synthetic graft. This technique can be an alternative option in patients with weak arterial wall or extended bacterial local infection in the retroperitoneal area which renders the aortic wall tissue extremely stiff to be folded and sutured. This technique may enhance the mechanical integrity of the stump.
  • Falciform ligament abscess secondary to a ruptured liver abscess in a child: a case report. [Case Reports]
    Pan Afr Med J. 2020; 35:21.Mahmoudi A, Rami M, … Bouabdallah Y
  • Abscess of the liver ligaments is extremely rare, and abscess of the falciform ligament has been sporadically reported. We report the case of a 3 years old male who presented with a three days history of right upper quadrant abdominal pain, fever and nausea. The ultrasound and computed tomography (CT) scan showed an abdominal wall abscess located anterior to the liver. The patient underwent surge…
  • Laparoscopic preperitoneal repair for primary falciform ligament herniation. [Case Reports]
    Ann R Coll Surg Engl. 2020 May; 102(5):e102-e104.Liang TJ, Wang KC, … Chen IS
  • Epigastric hernia involving the falciform ligament is exceptionally rare. Most reported cases are incisional hernia secondary to prior abdominal surgery. We report a case of primary falciform ligament herniation into the epigastric region repaired by the laparoscopic preperitoneal approach. In this case, an accompanying vessel along the herniated falciform ligament was identified. This finding pr…
  • Clinics in diagnostic imaging (203). Focal infarction of the falciform ligament fatty appendage. [Journal Article]
    Singapore Med J. 2020 Jan; 61(1):15-18.Chieng JSL, Leow KS, Lim TC
  • A 56-year-old man presented to the emergency department with acute upper abdominal pain and mild leucocytosis. The pain was not relieved by intravenous analgesia. Computed tomography of the abdomen and pelvis demonstrated a focal area of fat stranding with a thin peripheral rim of high attenuation and a punctate central hyperdense dot in the vicinity of the falciform ligament. The diagnosis of fo…
  • Spontaneous inflammation and necrosis of the falciform and round ligaments: a case report and review of the literature. [Journal Article]
    J Med Case Rep. 2020 Jan 23; 14(1):17.Bhatt A, Robinson E, Cunningham SC
  • CONCLUSIONS: Isolated falciform and round-ligament inflammation and necrosis is a rare condition that is difficult to diagnose because it can present mimicking a wide variety of intra-abdominal pathologies, particularly gallbladder pathologies. It is often best treated by laparoscopic resection. Unlike prior reports, our review of the literature, which is the largest that we know of to date, shows that males and females are equally affected. Greater awareness of this entity will aid in future diagnosis.
  • Primary Hemangiosarcoma of the Falciform Fat in Seven Dogs (2007-2015). [Journal Article]
    J Am Anim Hosp Assoc. 2020 Jan 21 [Online ahead of print]Mendez SE, Sykes Crumplar SE, Durham AC
  • Canine hemangiosarcoma (HSA), a malignant neoplasm of vascular endothelial or bone marrow progenitor cell origin, most often affects the spleen, heart, and liver and typically has an aggressive biologic behavior. Canine HSA arising from the falciform fat/ligament represents a rare anatomic variant, with only two reports in the veterinary literature. In this study, we describe the clinical present…
    J Zoo Wildl Med. 2020 Jan 09; 50(4):997-999.Kinney ME
  • A single incision laparoscopic system (SILS) was used to remove the falciform ligament of an adult male cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) during routine diagnostic liver biopsy. Adipose tissue isolated from the falciform ligament was used to establish a mesenchymal stem cell culture. The use of a SILS port for liver biopsy and falciform ligament collection allowed for a large amount of fat to be collect…
  • Fatty-falciform ligament appendage torsion (F-FLAT): Diagnosis and management in a pediatric patient. [Case Reports]
    Radiol Case Rep. 2020 Mar; 15(3):181-185.Horak RD, Mega JD, … Rooks VJ
  • Fatty-falciform ligament appendage torsion (F-FLAT) is a rare condition manifested by torsion of the extraperiotoneal fat within the falciform ligament. It is similar to intraperitoneal focal fatty infarctions, including omental infarction and epiploic appendagitis. We report herein the first case of F-FLAT in a pediatric patient that failed conservative management. Ultrasound and CT scan facilit…
  • A new winter stonefly (Plecoptera: Capniidae) from Shaanxi Province of China. [Journal Article]
    Zootaxa. 2019 Jul 05; 4629(2):zootaxa.4629.2.5.Chen ZT, Song LD
  • A new winter stonefly species of the genus Capnia Pictet, 1841, Capnia s.l. bilobata sp. nov. is described and illustrated from Shaanxi Province of northwestern China. The new species is distinguished from all currently known Capnia s.l. by the male and female genitalic characters. The falciform projection on male tergum 9 and the unique-shaped female subgenital plate separate the new taxon from …
  • Thermogenic crosstalk occurs between adipocytes from different species. [Journal Article]
    Sci Rep. 2019 Oct 23; 9(1):15177.Gilor C, Yang K, … Ziouzenkova O
  • Visceral obesity increases risks for all-cause mortality worldwide. A small population of thermogenic adipocytes expressing uncoupling protein-1 (Ucp1) regulates energy dissipation in white adipose tissue (WAT) depots. Thermogenic adipocytes subsets decrease obesity in mice, but their efficacy has not been tested in obese large animals. Here we enclosed murine subcutaneous adipocytes with and wit…
  • Novelties in the genus Viridantha Espejo (Tillandsioideae, Bromeliaceae). [Journal Article]
    PhytoKeys. 2019; 132:99-110.Hernández-Cárdenas RA, Díaz AS, … Espejo-Serna A
  • Based on morphological evidence, we propose to raise Tillandsia mauryana forma secundifolia to species level with the name Viridantha secundifolia (Ehlers) Hern.-Cárdenas, Espejo & López-Ferr. Viridantha secundifolia can be readily distinguished by the falciform rosettes, the broadly oblong to square, 1-1.2 × 0.8-1.1 cm leaf sheaths and by the 1.8-2 × 0.7-1.2 cm floral bracts. Additionally, we de…
  • Surgical approach to a left-sided gallbladder. [Case Reports]
    BMJ Case Rep. 2019 Aug 15; 12(8)Pereira R, Perera M, … Avramovic J
  • Biliary colic is a pain in the right upper quadrant or epigastrium thought to be caused by functional gallbladder spasm from a temporary obstructing stone in the gallbladder neck, cystic duct or common bile duct. A 56-year-old man presented with frequent episodes of typical biliary colic. At initial laparoscopy, the gallbladder was absent from its anatomic location. Further inspection revealed a …
  • Left side gallbladder with agenesis of right anterior sector and absence of right hepatic duct. A case report. [Journal Article]
    Int J Surg Case Rep. 2019; 60:249-252.Banchini F, Ekpo EF, … Capelli P
  • CONCLUSIONS: True left sided gallbladder is defined as one attached in the left of the ligamentum teres and falciform ligament. This abnormality predispose to a numerous anatomical variation. Unfortunately its finding is more often incidentally during intervention and recognition of such variation could be difficult that can be of high risk for surgical injury.Left sided gallbladder presents a significant challenge to the surgeon and makes it even more difficult to avoid postoperative complications. Therefore, a careful dissection of Calot's triangle and the complete mobilisation of the gallbladder should be done before clipping the cystic duct and artery. However, if a preoperative finding suggests a left sided gallbladder, then an in-depth preoperative anatomical study is advocated.
  • [Internal hernia through the falciform ligament: a rare cause of intestinal obstruction]. [Case Reports]
    Pan Afr Med J. 2019; 32:48.Hasnaoui H, Mouaqit O, … Bouhaddouti HE
  • Internal hernias are a rare cause of acute intestinal obstruction. Hernias through the falciform ligament is uncommon. Diagnosis is often made intraoperatively. Abdominal CT scan, performed in an emergency situation, can enable preoperative diagnosis and guide the therapeutic approach. In this respect, we here report a case whose data were collected in the Department of Visceral Surgery at the Un…
