A Rare Cause of Acute Abdominal Pain: Primary Appendagitis Epiploica

Primary?appendagitis?epiploica ? one of the causes of acute abdominal pain ? is a self-limited rare benign inflammatory condition involving the colonic epiploic appendages. Their therapy is conservative and?clinically mimics other conditions requiring surgery such as acute diverticulitis or appendicitis. However, being a quite rare condition is the reason they are usually neglected by both the surgeon and the radiologist. However…

Ultrasound-Guided Bilateral Infraclavicular Brachial Plexus Blockade for Bilateral Distal Radius Fracture Surgery: Case Report

Unilateral brachial plexus blockade causes efficient analgesia and anesthesia so it is frequently used in upper extremity surgery without major complications. However, bilateral brachial plexus blockade has some disadvantages such as systemic local anesthetic toxicity, pneumothorax and phrenic nerve paralysis. Thus bilateral brachial plexus blockade is seldom used in clinical practice. Here, we are presenting a case with bilateral radial…

Unusual Giant Adrenal Myelolipoma with Chronic Mild Postprandial Pain

Adrenal myelolipomas are rare, small, benign, non-functioning tumors, which must be histopathologically differentiated from other tumors such as lipomas or liposarcomas. They are usually identified incidentally during autopsy, imaging or laparotomy. Occasionally, they may present acutely due to complications such as abdominal pain from retroperitoneal bleeding or systemic symptoms of infection. In differantial diagnosis, Magnetic Resonance Imaging may be useful…

Bilateral Giant Scrotal Hernia Treated with Intraabdominal Mesh Repair, Component Separation, and Reduction Scrotoplasty

We report a 59 year-old male patient with bilateral giant inguino-scrotal hernia. The total volume of the scrotal hernias was almost 50% of the intraabdominal volume. Progressive pneumoperitoneum was tried to enhance intraabdominal volume before the repair, however the patient could not tolerate it. Therefore, he was scheduled for a single-stage transabdominal preperitoneal mesh repair and midline closure facilitated with…

Post-Traumatic Late Onset Cerebral Ischemia

Artery-to-artery emboli or occlusion of craniocervical arteries mostly due to dissection are the most common causes of ischemia after trauma. A 29 year-old male had been admitted to another hospital with loss of consciousness lasting for about 45 minutes after a hard parachute landing without head trauma three days ago. As his neurological examination and brain CT were normal, he…

A Giant Pseudoaneurysm Early After Bentall Operation

Bentall operation is the complete replacement of the aortic valve and the ascending aorta. Pseudoaneurysm seen after the Bentall procedure is frequently associated with surgical technique. Especially in the early postoperative period, patients undergoing such major surgery should be evaluated more carefully. Serial echocardiographic and radiological examinations have a vital role to detect life-threatening pseudoaneurysm developing after Bentall procedure.
