Minimally Invasive Approach for Mid-Esophageal and A Giant Epiphrenic Diverticula: Case Report

Esophageal diverticula are rare entities. We report our initial experience with a minimally invasive approach to mid-esophageal and epiphrenic diverticula in two cases. One patient with mid-esophageal diverticula was treated with esophagoscopy-guided thoracoscopic diverticulectomy. The other patient, with a large epiphrenic diverticulum, was treated with combined thoracoscopic diverticulectomy and laparoscopic esophagomyotomy and fundoplication. Thoracoscopic diverticulectomy is a safe and effective…

A Case of Synchronous Bilateral Upper Urinary System Urothelial Carcinoma

Synchronous bilateral upper urinary tract urothelial cancer (UTUC) is a very rare form of urothelial cancer. In patients with high-risk unilateral UTUC, radical nephroureterectomy (RNU) is the gold standard treatment. However, there is no consensus on the treatment for synchronous bilateral UTUC. Evaluation of the patient and the tumor is recommended. Bilateral nephron-sparing surgery (NSS) was performed on a 53-year-old…

Covering the Dorsal Finger Defect with Reverse Cross Finger Flap

Reconstruction of finger extensor zone defects with or without tendon gaps still remains a challenge for surgeons. Although surgical treatments may differ, and range from the use of local, regional, to free flaps, the outcomes for all cases are not satisfactory. In this case report, we present a case of a 3rd finger extensor side crush injury including a defect…

First Identified Case in Literature: Association of Achalasia and Celiac Diseases

Celiac disease has been shown to cause problems related to gastrointestinal system motility such as reduction of the esophageal sphincter pressure and prolongation of gastric emptying time. Achalasia disease is a motor disorder that is charac?terized by the absence of esophageal peristalsis and by incomplete relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter. Association of achalasia and celiac diseases has not been…

Rare Case of Complete Fatty Degeneration of the Paraspinal Muscle in a Patient with Low Back Pain

The ethiopathogenesis of low back pain cannot always be demonstrated and sometimes clinicians cannot establish a relationship between clinical symptoms and radiological examinations. Clinicians tend to focus on vertebral body, intervertebral discs, and facet joints on imaging in low back pain. However, the paravertebral muscles that play an important role in lumbar spine stabilization should not be underestimated on imaging.…

Can Local Anesthesia Prevent the Injury of Brachial Plexus?

Schwannomas (neurilemmomas) are benign tumors arising from peripheral nerve sheaths. They can be seen all over the body, but approximately half of the cases occur in the head and neck region. The schwannoma arising from brachial plexus is a rare cause of neck masses. They are rarely diagnosed preoperatively. The risk of nerve damage after excision is high under general…
