1/269. Palliative sclerosis of intra-abdominal cystic ovarian or peritoneal carcinoma.

    Three patients with platinum- and paclitaxel-resistant predominantly cystic intra-abdominal recurrences of ovarian or peritoneal carcinoma were treated with CT-guided percutaneous catheter drainage and subsequent sclerosis. This relieved colonic or ureteral obstruction and provided significant relief from symptoms. In one case repeated sclerosis was performed. sclerosis of cystic recurrences may provide additional palliation.

2/269. Demonstration of communication between alveolus and interstitium in persistent interstitial pulmonary emphysema: case report.

    Persistent interstitial pulmonary emphysema (PIPE) is an uncommon complication of premature infants suffering from hyaline membrane disease who have been treated with mechanical ventilation. The presumed mechanism for the development of the disease is via a break in the bronchioalveolar system that allows air to escape into the interstitium. We report a case of a 9-week-old child who developed the localized form of the disease and underwent a lobectomy. Immunohistochemical stains helped to demonstrate the communication between the airway system and interstitium. This report strengthens the theory that the disease develops from airway rupture at the alveolar level.

3/269. Bilateral ureteritis cystica with unilateral ureteropelvic junction obstruction.

    Ureteritis cystica is a rare, benign, proliferative disorder characterized by multiple ureteral cysts and multiple filling defects noted on contrast ureteral imaging. A unique case of bilateral ureteritis cystica coincidental with chronic, congenital, unilateral ureteropelvic junction obstruction presenting with microscopic hematuria and lower urinary tract symptoms is described. The characteristic presentation as well as the diagnostic radiographic, ureteroscopic, and histologic features of pyeloureteritis cystica are reviewed.

4/269. Duodenal duplication cyst manifested by duodeno-jejunal intussusception and hyperbilirubinemia.

    A rare case of duodenal duplication cyst containing stones in a 17-year-old patient is presented. The cyst, acting as a leading point for duodeno-jejunal intussusception caused proximal small bowel obstruction and hyperbilirubinemia. Preoperative diagnosis was based on abdominal computerized tomography. At operation, the cyst wall was unroofed creating free drainage into the duodenal lumen without damaging the biliary and pancreatic ducts with resolution of symptoms.

5/269. Obstructive jaundice caused by a huge liver cyst riding on the hilum: report of a case.

    A 71-year-old man presented to our hospital with obstructive jaundice, found to be caused by a huge liver cyst which was centrally located and riding on the hilum. Percutaneous transhepatic cyst drainage was performed, following which obstruction of the bile duct was relieved and the jaundice subsided. As jaundice recurred after removal of the drainage tube, the patient underwent deroofing, since when he has remained well. Only 13 cases of liver cysts producing obstructive jaundice have been reported in the English literature, most of which were characteristically enormous, located centrally, and riding on the hilum. liver cysts possessing such features are likely to cause obstructive jaundice by compressing the hepatic hilum. Cyst drainage is helpful for ameliorating the jaundice and making an accurate diagnosis; however, subsequent deroofing or injection therapy is necessary to prevent recurrence.

6/269. Case report: Colonic duplication: a rare cause of obstruction.

    Complete duplication of the entire large bowel with partial ileal involvement is very rare and diagnosis can often be difficult as illustrated by this case report. We also review the other clinical associations of this rare condition and briefly discuss the embryology of duplications of the gastrointestinal tract.

7/269. Endoscopic treatment of symptomatic septum pellucidum cysts: with some preliminary observations on the ultrastructure of the cyst wall: two technical case reports.

    OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE: We describe two patients with symptomatic septum pellucidum cysts managed by endoscopic fenestration. In each case, tissue from the cyst wall was studied to define the origin of the cyst wall and fluid. CLINICAL PRESENTATION: The patients, a 6-year-old boy and a 42-year-old man, each presented with headaches and a syncopal episode. Imaging studies demonstrated large septum pellucidum cysts with obstruction of the foramina of Monro. INTERVENTION: The patients underwent endoscopic transventricular cyst fenestration with a 4-mm steerable fiberscope. The fenestrations were created to allow communication with the right and left lateral ventricles. In one patient, adhesions between the cyst wall and the foramen of Monro were lysed with endoscopic monopolar cautery. Tissue from the cyst walls was removed for examination by electron microscopy. Postoperatively, the headaches and syncopal episodes resolved in both patients. CONCLUSION: Endoscopic fenestration of symptomatic septum pellucidum cysts produces immediate relief of the mass effect of the cyst and resolution of associated symptoms. Cannulation of the lateral ventricle before cyst fenestration prevents inadvertent injury to the fornices, thalamus, internal capsule, caudate nucleus, and septal and thalamostriate veins. The endoscopic approach allows the surgeon to ensure communication within the ventricular system, thus avoiding placement of a shunt. Preliminary ultrastructural analysis indicates that the cyst walls derive from the septum pellucidum rather than the choroid plexus or arachnoid. The cellular machinery necessary for fluid secretion was identified in some specimens.

8/269. dandy-walker syndrome successfully treated with cystoperitoneal shunting--case report.

    A neonate presented with dandy-walker syndrome manifesting as a large posterior cranial fossa cyst, aplasia of the lower cerebellar vermis, and elevation of the confluence of the sinuses but without hydrocephalus. A cystoperitoneal shunt was placed at one month after birth. The cyst diminished in size, and marked development of the cerebellar hemispheres and descent of the confluence of sinuses were observed, but not vermis development. The primary pathology of dandy-walker syndrome is posterior cranial fossa cyst formation due to passage obstruction in the fourth ventricle exit area and aplasia of the lower cerebellar vermis. The first choice of treatment in patients with dandy-walker syndrome in whom the cerebral aqueduct is open is cystoperitoneal shunt surgery, regardless of the presence or absence of hydrocephalus.

9/269. prenatal diagnosis of cystic bladder distension secondary to obstructive uropathy.

    We report the perinatal findings of a huge midline posterior cystic bladder distension secondary to lower urinary tract obstruction and prune-belly syndrome in a male fetus. A 40-year-old woman, gravida 3, para 0, was referred at 21 gestation weeks with sonographic findings of anhydramnios and a fetus with a 9.5 x 6.0 cm intra-abdominal cystic mass containing two chambers. The in utero ultrasound-guided fetal bladder drainage using a single needle aspiration and the ultrasound follow-ups of fetal bladder filling provided a diagnostic aid. This method helped to show the position of the bladder and the cystic bladder mass as well as the status of communication in response to decompression or filling of the fetal bladder. cytogenetic analysis revealed a 46,XY karyotype. autopsy showed agenesis of the posterior urethra, prominent megacystis, a cystically distended mass arising from the lower posterior bladder, hydronephrosis, megaureters, and anorectal agenesis with an intestinal blind end adherent to the posterior wall of the uterus. There were no urogenital duplication, hindgut duplication, or urachal abnormalities. The contracted bladder had a full-thickness muscular wall with a trigone and two ureteral orifices while the cystically distended bladder did not have any opening and was lined by a very thin wall. histology of the cystic bladder wall demonstrated typical urothelium, lamina propria and muscularis propria. The pathogenesis and differential diagnosis of cystic bladder distension are discussed.

10/269. Saccular laryngeal cysts. Three case studies and review of the literature.

    Supraglottic laryngeal cysts are benign lesions that usually are easily recognized and simply managed. Among these lesions saccular cysts are uncommon, usually large, anomalies of the larynx and can cause severe airway obstruction and even death. Three patients with a saccular cyst were successfully treated by endoscopic CO(2)-laser excision of their lesions. Before microlaryngoscopy and laser procedure, an urgent tracheostomy was required in 1 of our cases.
