Methods: We report a case of successfully performed Caesarean
section followed by reconstruction of the abdominal aorta in a patient
with Marfan syndrome.
Results: A 35-year-old woman at 37 weeks’ gestation in her second
pregnancy was referred with abdominal aortic aneurysm.
Fluid shifts commonly occur in the perioperative setting and may
result in hypo- or hypervolemia. Reasons for such changes in fluid
status are multiple, ranging from the underlying disease process
(e. g., vomiting, ileus, peritonitis/sepsis) over drug-induced
Background: Acute mesenteric ischemia is a life-threatening clinical
entity. 2‑Aminoethoxydiphenyl borate (2-APB) is
a membrane-permeable modulator of intracellular inositol
triphosphate-induced calcium release.
Background: Mesh fixation during transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP)
hernia repair should be done using nonpenetrating fixation devices in
order to reduce acute and chronic pain. Beside fibrin sealant,
N‑butyl cyanoacrylate (NBCA) can be applied.
Background: Metastases, which result from circulating tumor cells
(CTC) that have detached from the primary cancer and survived in
distant organs, cause the majority of cancer deaths. The present study
aimed to assess the prognostic relevance of CTC in patients with
Background: Surgery is the preferred treatment for gallbladder
polyps, not only for relieving the symptoms but also for eliminating
the potential risk of malignancy. In our study, we investigated
whether patients who had undergone surgery truly had a surgical
indication and beyond question required laparoscopic cholecystectomy
due to malignancy.
