  • StatPearls: Meigs Syndrome [BOOK]
    . StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Mohammed Shahid A. SA Michican State Univeristy/Spectrum Health Kumar Abhishek A Albert Einstein College of Medicine BOOK
  • In 1937, Joe Vincent Meigs and John W Cass reported a series of 7 cases of ovarian fibroma associated with ascites and hydrothorax. It was later termed Meigs syndrome by Rhodes and Terrell. Even though the association of benign ovarian tumors and pleural effusion was reported before, it was Meigs and Cass who reported the resolution of ascites and pleural effusion after the removal of the tumor. …
  • StatPearls: Peripheral Neurolytic Blocks [BOOK]

    . StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Hitawala Asif A. AA Cleveland Clinic Foundation Mousa Omar Y. OY Mayo Clinic BOOK
  • Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) and percutaneous endoscopic gastro-jejunal (PEG-J) tubes are common procedures in the management of patients who require long-term nutritional support. They serve as alternatives to enteral feeding and laparotomy-guided placement of feeding tubes. PEG tube placement was first introduced in 1980 and has a success rate of more than 95%. Patients typically r…
  • StatPearls: Nipple Areola Reconstruction [BOOK]
    . StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Braza Matthew E. ME Spectrum Health/Michigan St. University Sisti Andrea A Cleveland Clinic BOOK
  • Breast cancer is the commonest cancer diagnosis in women with an annual incidence of approximately 1 in 10 women.[1] Treatment of breast cancer frequently involves surgery, which entails both oncologic resection and reconstruction if desired. Reconstructive surgery of the breasts often entails more than one stage, in order to best recreate a natural-appearing breast(s) and correct asymmetries. In…
  • StatPearls: Rhombic Flaps [BOOK]
    . StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Macneal Peter P St George's Hospital London Adlard Roger E. RE St Georges' NHS Trust BOOK
  • Rhombic flaps are geometric local transposition flaps and offer significant versatility within reconstructive surgery. This flap is most commonly used to fill skin cancer defects of the head and neck region. While successful outcomes have been reported in a range of anatomical locations and pathological defects such as in spina bifida, burn contractures, chronic pilonidal sinuses, hand, and breas…
  • Axillary accessory breast cancer with persistent leftsuperior vena cava: A case report and treatment controversy. [Case Reports]
    Int J Surg Case Rep. 2020 Jun 20; 73:71-74.Zhang J, Zhang W, … Pan Y
  • CONCLUSIONS: Is there a need to remove the breast and perform ALND during axillary accessory breast cancer surgery? Is sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) appropriate for axillary accessory breast cancer surgery? Can negative SLNB for axillary accessory breast cancer avoid ALND? Does accessory breast cancer without axillary lymph node metastasis require local radiotherapy? Does PLSVC impact the use of peripherally inserted central catheters (PICC) tubes during chemotherapy? Patients with accessory breast cancer without breast invasion should undergo local extended resection and ALND. SLNB for accessory breast cancer cannot instead of ALND. We recommend routine axillary radiotherapy after accessory breast cancer surgery. If it is determined that the tip of PICC is not in the coronary sinus of PLSVC, PLSVC does not affect chemotherapy.Many treatment strategies for accessory breast cancer require more evidence from evidence-based medicine. It is imperative to conduct multi-center accessory breast cancer research.
  • Aggressive angiomyxoma in pregnancy: a case report and literature review. [Journal Article]
    J Int Med Res. 2020 Jul; 48(7):300060520936414.Xu H, Sun P, … Shi Y
  • Aggressive angiomyxoma is an interstitial tumour that is often misdiagnosed and is likely to recur. There have been few reported cases of angiomyxoma in pregnant women. We report a case of a woman who was previously diagnosed with a tumour in her vulva that increased in size during both of her pregnancies and spontaneously decreased postpartum. Local excision was performed and a gonadotropin-rele…
  • Giant mesenteric fibromatosis associated with non-Hodgkin lymphoma. a case report and literature review. [Journal Article]
    Acta Chir Belg. 2020 Jul 09 [Online ahead of print]Pujol-Cano N, Bianchi A, … Gonzalez-Argente XF
  • CONCLUSIONS: As far as we know from the literature, this is the largest mesenteric fibromatosis tumour ever to be excised. We also noticed that this is the first reported case of the concomitant presence of mesenteric fibromatosis and non-Hodgkin lymphoma that is not related to any of the described risk factors. Further research is needed to establish what type of association this presentation may indicate.
  • Ileo-sigmoid knotting: the Parirenyatwa hospital experience. [Journal Article]
    S Afr J Surg. 2020 Jun; 58(2):70-73.Mbanje C, Mungazi SG, … Maunganidze AJV
  • CONCLUSIONS: To avoid mortality, the diagnosis of ileo-sigmoid knotting should be entertained and the imperative of emergency surgery recognised in the young male or pregnant female patient with acute nocturnal onset abdominal pain, a rapidly deteriorating small bowel obstruction clinical picture and with radiological features suggestive of both small and large bowel obstruction.
  • Robotic extended right colectomy with complete mesocolic excision - Video Vignette. [Letter]
    Colorectal Dis. 2020 Jul 09 [Online ahead of print]Tribuzi A, Marzano M, … Coratti A
  • Complete mesocolic excision for colon cancer has been shown to provide superior oncological outcomes and better survival advantage when compared to standard resection. Laparoscopic complete mesocolic excision (CME) for transverse colon cancer is technically challenging and carries the risk of serious complications. Robotic technology has been developed to reduce technical limitations of laparosco…
