Study Design. Case description. Objectives. To present a case of a missed diagnosis of penetrating spine injury by wood and review of the literature. Summary of Background Data. Penetrating spinal injuries by wood are rare injuries. Less than 10 cases with penetrating spine injuries by a wooden fragment had been reported earlier. Methods. A 23-year-old man had fallen from 3 m high tree and sustained a penetrating wound on his right lower back. As the direct radiographic evaluation was normal, the diagnosis of foreign body was missed. Eventually, the diagnosis was made on admission of the patient with purulent discharge from his woun . . .d, 1-week postprimary closure. Hypoesthesia of S1, S2, and S3 alone, were noted neurologically. The computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging of patient revealed an intraspinal foreign body pierced through the S1-S2 interlaminary space. Extraction of the wooden fragment was then performed by limited S1 laminectomy and the dural defect was also repaired. Results. With appropriate antibiotherapy, patient recovered, with no sequela. Conclusion. Due to its density and radiologic properties, it is not unusual for wood to be overlooked, unless detailed imaging with computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging is used Daha fazlası Daha az

An unusual case of lymphedema tarda

Article | 2006 | MEDICAL SCIENCE MONITOR12 ( 10 )

Background: Lymphedema is the result of the equilibrium between the load to be cleared and the transport capacity of the clearing system. Lymphedema may be classified as primary or secondary, based on the underlying etiology. Primary lymphedema is an unusual disorder characterized by inadequate lymphatic drainage. Lymphedema tarda is a rare form of primary lymphedema. Case Report: The case of lymphedema tarda documented here was chronic, progressive, and resistant to medical therapy and recurred several times after previous operations. Conclusions: We performed two-staged operations and we recommend that the staged excisional proced . . .ures offers reliable long-term improvement and minimizes postoperative complications in chronic advanced lymphedema Daha fazlası Daha az

Intracardiac Masses in Western Black Sea Region and Our Surgical Experience

Objective: We aimed to report our surgical experience and outcomes in patients operated for intracardiac mass in our clinic. Materials and Methods: Six patients were operated for an intracardiac mass between May 2006 and March 2015. Five patients were female and 1 was male; the mean age of the study population was 54 (34-82) years. One patient presented with dyspnea and tachycardia secondary to pulmonary thromboembolism (PTE) and one patient with syncope, while the other patients presented with constitutional symptoms such as fatigue and dyspnea. Definitive diagnosis was made by a combination of thoracoabdominal tomography (CT) and . . .echocardiography in one patient, and transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) and/or transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) in the remaining patients. The time from the diagnosis to the operation of masses was 2.5 days (1-4 days) on average. Four patients aged over 45 years underwent coronary angiography, irrespective of gender. The operations were performed via cardiopulmonary bypass, under standard aorta bicaval cannulation, antegrade cold blood cardioplegia, and moderate hypothermia. All defects in the patients with the initial diagnosis of cardiac myxoma were primarily closed. One patient was operated for a right atrial mass (thrombus). None of the patients suffered an intraoperative complication. The patients were discharged after an average of 9.6 days. Results: Histopathological diagnosis was a thrombus secondary to hypercoagulopathy related to antipsychotic drug use in one patient, and myxoma in the other patients. All myxomas were located in the left atrium while thrombi were in the right atrium, extending to the inferior vena cava. None of the patients had a family history for intracardiac mass. All patients enjoyed a clear clinical benefit upon mass removal. No early or late-term mortality was observed. There were no recurrences between 1 to 106 months (17.6 months on average) during early or late follow-up. Conclusion: Intracardiac masses, with myxomas being in the first place, may cause embolism, syncope, palpitations, and dyspnea; they should thus be remembered in the differential diagnosis of other intracardiac pathologies and operated at an early stage as soon as they are diagnosed; the tumor mass should be totally excised with a wide resection Daha fazlası Daha az
