The study concern was to establish the position of cystic duct incision/division in circumstances of laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Seventy consecutive human cadavers were dissected. Corrosion casting (50) and post-mortem cholangiography (20) were employed. Cystic duct length was 34.6 mm, and in 88.6% cases its length was 1-5 cm. Mean cystic duct ...

We report a so-called carcinosarcoma of the gallbladder in a 53-year-old man. The findings of ultrasonography, computed tomography, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, and angiography revealed a large mass of the gallbladder with a cholesterol stone. He underwent three operations, and died from liver failure with multiple liver metastasis immediately after the ...

The subcutaneous herniation of gallbladder through the abdominal wall is very rare, and to our knowledge, only two cases were reported previously in the literature [Clin. Radiol. 42 (1990) 283; J. Clin. Ultrasound 25 (1997) 398]. In both of these cases, the gallbladders were found to be distended. To our ...

BACKGROUND: Fundus-first dissection (FFD) is an established technique to deal with difficult open cholecystectomies. Although the indications for such an approach are similar for laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC), FFD is not widely practiced because of difficulties that arise with liver retraction, the dissection of dense adhesions, or obscured cystic pedicles, often ...

Proboscis lateralis is a rare craniofacial anomaly. It consists of a soft, trunk-like process that originates from the medial portion of the orbital roof and it may be accompanied by a number of facial and cerebral anomalies. The characteristics and relationship of the lesion to adjacent structures should be known, ...

A neonate with right lung agenesis presenting with respiratory distress is described. The unusual radiological features were contralateral mediastinal shift (in contrast to expected ipsilateral shift) and diaphragmatic eventration on the affected side. Mediastinal shift to the opposite side was due to intrathoracic hepatic herniation under a high placed eventrated ...

BACKGROUND: Anomalous insertion of the right hepatic duct into the cystic duct is a rare anatomic variation. At this writing, only nine cases have been reported in the literature. In the patients presenting with this anomaly, the surgeon may accidentally transect the right hepatic duct during cholecystectomy. METHODS: We encountered ...

An interstitial tandem duplication of 6p21.1-p22.2 was found in a girl at 11 months of age when she was evaluated for developmental delay. Previous cases reported with partial 6p duplication usually have involved terminal duplications, with breakpoints ranging from 6p11 to 6p25. Our patient exhibits a milder phenotype compared to ...

We report a case of myeloschisis on the right hemicord in a patient with diastematomyelia. The patient was a female neonate with myeloschisis visible at birth in the upper lumbar region. Radiological examination, including three-dimensional CT and MRI, clearly revealed a bony septum as well as the myeloschisis on the ...

Tubular colonic duplications are exceedingly rare; the "Y"-shaped forms are exceptional. In the absence of associated low vertebral or urogenital malformations (often fistulas), the tubular colonic malformations frequently stay hidden for several years until a complication develops. The authors report a case of a spontaneous perforation of a Y-shaped tubular ...

Rhombencephalosynapsis is a rare condition in which most cases are found in newborns and infants. Morphological findings are predominantly characterized by fusion of the cerebellar hemispheres and absence of the vermis with often associated supratentorial anomalies.

Although the true incidence of ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction in the lower-pole moiety of an incompletely duplicated renal collecting system remains elusive, the description of this entity in the published literature is exceedingly rare. To our knowledge, we report the first case of this entity managed successfully by ureteroscopic holmium ...

D-2-hydroxyglutaric aciduria is a rare autosomal recessive organic aciduria with variable clinical expression. The biochemical defect is still unknown, and genetic heterogeneity has been suggested. Here, we report on facial anomalies in two unrelated cases of D-2-hydroxyglutaric aciduria presenting with epileptic encephalopathy. In a review, we found that minor facial ...

Intestinal duplications are uncommon but recognised developmental anomalies. Duplications of the rectum are the most uncommon of these anomalies. They may present with perianal fistulae, bleeding, a pelvic mass or symptoms produced by a mass, or, rarely, malignant change. We present a case of an adenocarcinoma within a rectal duplication ...

The authors report on a newborn girl with complex urogenital and hindgut abnormalities. Urogenital anomalies consisted of absence of vulva and vagina, uterine and urethral atresias, bladder agenesis with ectopic ureteric opening, and bilateral pelvic ectopic kidneys. In addition, the baby had anorectal atresia without fistula as a hindgut anomaly. ...
