Mixed medullary-papillary carcinomas are very rare and still not listed in the WHO classification (1988). The rarity of the co-existence of medullary and papillary carcinoma suggests that these cases represent mere coincidence. Some studies have shown that radiation exposure has induced neoplasia in the two cell types in rats. But we still have limited information about the carcinogenetic effect of laser ablation on the thyroid gland. This report describes the first case of thyroid carcinoma that demonstrated both medullary carcinoma and papillary components in the thyroid, which might occur due to percutaneous thyroid laser ablation.

Cartilage graft tympanoplasty has a better success rate in the treatment of chronic otitis media if regularly prepared and placed.To prepare cartilage island material and evaluate its effect on the success rate of tympanoplasty.The medical records of 87 patients (48 males and 39 females; mean age, 27.311.2 years; range, 14-43 years) with chronic otitis media without cholesteatoma who underwent intact canal-wall-up tympanoplasty and revision surgery between December of 2007 and October of 2011 were retrospectively evaluated. Surgery was performed under general anesthesia via a retroauricular approach.The overall success rate of this technique was 93% in terms of perforation closure. No graft lateralization or displacement into the middle ear occurred. The overall average preoperative air bone gap was 37.2712.35 dB, and the postoperative air bone gap was 27.589.84 dB. The mean postoperative follow-up period was 15.3 months (range: 7-21 months).If cartilage graft is properly prepared and placed, cartilage graft tympanoplasty appears to provide better success rates and hearing results.

Purpose: The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and the tolerability of three classic antimuscarinic drugs used in the treatment of over active bladder syndrome using clinical data and quality of life tests, and to evaluate the parameters affecting the success of these drugs. Methods: A total of 90 patients with urge urinary incontinence were randomly allocated into three groups either to receive tolterodine (group A), trospium chloride (group B) or oxybutynin (group C). Urogenital distress inventory short form (UDI-6) and Incontinence impact questionnaire short form (IIQ-7) of the Turkish Urogynecology and Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery Association were performed to each patient before and after treatment to evaluate the effectiveness and tolerability of the antimuscarinic drugs. Adverse events were also recorded during treatment. Results: Improved urodynamic test values were recorded after 6 weeks of treatment in each group. Similarly, statistically significant differences were observed in UDI-6 and IIQ-7 test scores before and after treatment. Complete cure was achieved in 86 % of patients in group A; however, complete cure rates were 67 and 80 % in group B and C, respectively. Although, patients reported comparable tolerability against trospium chloride (77 %) and tolterodine (80 %), only 23 % of patients using oxybutynin considered the drug as tolerable. The most common side effect was dry mouth, followed by insomnia. Both dry mouth and insomnia was highest in group C (50 %). One patient (0.3 %) in group B and two patients (0.7 %) in group C reported that they did not want to continue to use the drug. Conclusion: Antimuscarinic medications are very successful in the treatment of urge urinary incontinence; however, the success of treatment is not only limited to clinical improvement. Patients do not regard a drug as successful unless it is tolerable, easy to adapt to the daily life and improve the quality of life even it has very successful clinical outcomes. © 2012 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

BACKGROUND: Jaundice has been associated with an increased incidence of postoperative hernias, decreased wound and anastomotic bursting pressure, and reduced tissue collagen synthesis. This study is aimed to examine the possible effects of honey supplementation on anastomotic wound healing in obstructive jaundice (OJ) model. METHODS: Eighty wistar-albino rats were divided into four groups as control, OJ, O plus artificial honey and OJ plus honey. Rats were fed with standard rat chow (SRC) in group-I&II, SRC plus 10 mg/kg/day honey in group-4 and SRC plus artificial honey including the same caloric amount with honey in group-3. Colon anastomoses were performed in all groups. Also, common bile duct ligation was performed in group-1, group-2 and group-3. On the postoperative 3rd and 7th days, anastomotic healing was evaluated. RESULTS: The hydroxyproline level was significantly lower in the jaundiced animals compared with the controls and those given honey or artificial honey (p<0.05). The anastomotic bursting pressure results showed a correlation with the hydroxyproline results, and the use of honey significantly increased the bursting pressure compared with that of the bile duct ligated group (p<0.05). CONCLUSION: The oral administration of honey can be considered when attempts at conventional internal drainage fail in obstructive jaundice (Tab. 2, Fig. 6, Ref. 20).

Echinococcal disease remains a problem within some endemic areas. It usually involves the liver and lungs, but any other organ can potentially be involved. Soft tissue hydatid disease without liver and lung involvement was reported in 2.3 % of patients. This paper presents a case of 35-year-old male patient who was referred to our department with a 9x9x6cm hydatid cyst at psoas muscle. The rarity of the musculoskeletal disease renders the decision making on the favorable treatment quite difficult. Conservative treatment, complete excision and simple drainage have all been suggested as adequate. We advocate total en bloc excision whenever possible (Fig. 2, Ref. 4).

BACKGROUND: The sacrococcygeal pilonidal disease affects relatively young people, causing much nuisance and many lost working days. The ideal treatment should be simple, allowing a speedy recovery with short hospitalization while affording a permanent cure. Currently, many treatment options are available; unfortunately, none of them is ideal and each has its own recurrence rate. In this study, we wanted to emphasize the effectiveness of sinotomy in sacrococcygeal pilonidal sinus disease by single-surgeon's experience. METHODS: Single-surgeon's experience of 59 pilonidal sinus patients was reviewed at single-institute between July 2005 and December 2006. 2% Prilocaine was injected for local anesthesia and sinotomy technique was performed. All patients were discharged at postoperative second hour and were followed up for a minimum 1 year. RESULTS: Median age of the 59 patients was 24 (14-56) years. Forty-six (77.96%) of them were male and 13 (22.03%) of them were female. Healing completed in 1 month and almost all the patients were able to return to work the following day. We proudly have no recurrence at our mean follow up time of 16 months (range: 12-24 months). Our complication rate was 1.69%. CONCLUSION: Sinotomy has the advantages of simplicity, the possibility to operate under local anesthesia with excellent recurrence rate of 0% (Ref. 9). Full Text (Free, PDF) www.bmj.sk.

INTRODUCTION: The effects of dilatation and increased pressure in the ureter and renal pelvis following ureterorenoscopy (URS) are not well documented. The purpose of the prospective study was to evaluate renal function in patients undergoing URS for treatment of ureteral calculi. METHODS: URS was performed on 30 patients between March and June, 2009. The mean (SD) patient age was 38.8 (12.2) years. There were 23 males and 7 females. Biochemical tests of renal function in the serum and urine were performed before the URS and on the 7th postoperative day. Outcome measures were compared before and after URS for all patients, and separately for patients with or without a double-J stent, using paired t tests. Probability <.003 indicated significant differences, following a Bonferroni adjustment. RESULTS: Out of 17 measures of renal function, there was a significant postsurgery increase in the amount of proteinuria excreted in the 24-hour urine (P =.001). Ureteral stents were inserted in 19 (63%) patients. Patients with and without DJ stents had a significant increase in proteinuria in 24-hour urine (P =.001 for both patient groups). There were no other significant differences. The mean URS duration was 40 minutes. The mean amount of serum physiological fluid consumed was 1860 mL (SD, 1474.2; range, 250-7500 mL). A pneumatic lithotripter was used in 27 (90%) of the cases to shatter the calculi. There were no surgical complications or significant changes in arterial blood pressure. CONCLUSIONS: The URS procedure did not significantly alter any measure of renal function except for urine proteinuria in 24 hours, which increased following surgery for patients with or without DJ stents. ©2010 UroToday International Journal.

Hernia | Year: 2010

Endometriosis is characterized by the presence of histological normal endometrial tissue outside the uterine cavity. It occurs in up to 15% of menstruating women and often goes undetected. Some cases of soft-tissue involvement have been reported, particularly in the skin and subjacent tissues of surgical scars. However, we came cross a 42-year-old female patient with millimetric focal lesions in a groin hernia sac. A case report and a review of the literature are presented. Although deWnitive diagnosis still requires biopsy, the patient's cyclic symptoms and history of previous uterine surgery should suggest the correct diagnosis. © Springer-Verlag 2009.

This study aimed to investigate oxidative stress in etiopathogenesis by analyzing serum total antioxidant capacity (TAC), total oxidant status (TOS), binding capacity of exogenous cobalt to human albumin (IMA), serum advanced oxidation protein products (AOPP), paraoxonase (PON), arylesterase, IgE, and C-reactive protein (CRP) in bladder pain syndrome/interstitial cystitis (BPS/IC).The study included 16 female patients diagnosed with BPS/IC and 25 healthy female subjects forming the control group. A bladder biopsy was performed on all patients in the BPS/IC group by carrying out cystoscopy with hydrodistention under general anesthesia. The results of serum TAC, TOS, IMA, AOPP, PON, arylesterase, IgE, and CRP of the subjects in both groups were compared.The mean age of the 16 female patients in the BPS/IC group was 43.6 14.5 years, and the mean age of the 25 healthy subjects in the control group was 42.0 10.3 years. According to the criteria of International Society for the Study of Interstitial Cystitis (ESSIC), eight patients were classified as Type 2A, three patients as Type 2B, four patients as Type 2C, and one patient as Type 3C. In the BPS/IC group, while TAC was found significantly lower than in the control group, IMA, IgE, and CRP were found significantly higher (P < 0.05). When binary logistic regression analysis was performed, the created model was determined to have 81.3 % sensitivity and 80 % specifity.In the etiology of BPS/IC, mechanism of oxidative damage comes into prominence. In the diagnosis of BPS/IC, IgE, CRP, and TAC are not specific markers when used separately; however, a higher specifity and sensitivity could be reached when used jointly in the suspected patients.
