1/63. Clinical diagnosis of an unusual cause of a cutaneous neck mass.

    A case of migrating ingested fish bone presenting as an unresolving inflamed neck mass is reported. The clinical features of this rare but easily misdiagnosed entity are discussed. The diagnosis must be suspected in a patient with an unresolving inflamed cutaneous lesion (especially one with a punctum), tenderness of the lesion elicited on swallowing and the presence of a palpable subcutaneous fistula tract. In such a patient, a history of recent foreign body ingestion must be actively sought. An accurate early diagnosis of this easily treatable condition is desirable as it could avert unnecessary delays, inconveniences, anxiety, costs, investigations and surgery.

2/63. Aortoduodenal fistula after endovascular stent-graft of an abdominal aortic aneurysm.

    Despite satisfying short- and middle-term effectiveness and feasibility, endovascular stent-grafting for abdominal aortic aneurysm is still under evaluation. We report a case of an aortoduodenal fistula after the use of this technique. Enlargement of the upper aneurysmal neck was followed by caudal migration of the major portion of the stent-graft, which resulted in kinking of the device in the aneurysmal sac. Ulcerations were found on adjacent portions of both the aneurysmal sac and the adjacent duodenum. Only the textile portion of the prosthetic contralateral limb separated the aortic lumen from the corresponding duodenal lumen. Early detection of complications after stent-grafting is essential to allow successful treatment, either surgical or endoluminal.

3/63. An unusual neck lump.

    Oropharyngeal penetration and migration of ingested bodies into the neck is extremely rare. This is a case report of a 2-year-old boy who presented with a submental lump 1 day after swallowing a fish bone. The clinical, radiological, and intraoperative findings of the case are discussed.

4/63. Intrathoracic migration of Steinmann pins.

    The migration of surgical wires and pins placed for repair of orthopedic injury is well recognized. Such migration usually follows a retrograde path and the wires protrude near their entry point into the native bone. Occasionally, the migration occurs in an antegrade manner and produces injury. We describe a case where three Steinmann pins placed for fixation of a humeral neck fracture migrated, one slipping backwards towards the humeral entry point and two pins migrating into the thorax.

5/63. Migrating oesophageal foreign body--an unusual case.

    Ingested foreign bodies which migrate extraluminally are rare occurrences. If untreated, they may result in life threatening complications. Exploration of the neck via an external approach to remove the foreign body is the recommended treatment. The CT Scan utilising fine cuts is invaluable in localising the foreign body for exploration. The case of a patient with a metallic foreign body in the oesophagus which migrated extraluminally is presented. Hemithyroidectomy was required to gain access for removal of the foreign body. A discussion on the management of such a case follows.

6/63. Migrating foreign body in the tracheobronchial tree: an unusual case of firework penetrating neck injury.

    Firework injuries can manifest themselves in many different ways; usually as an explosive or burn injury. This case describes an unusual presentation of a firework penetrating injury resulting in a sharp coiled metal foreign body travelling through a small entry wound in the neck and subsequently lodging itself in the tracheobronchial tree. A foreign body such as this can potentially travel a considerable distance through the soft tissues and end up in an unsuspecting distant site. There must, therefore, be a high index of suspicion with the appropriate radiological investigations for appropriate management of such cases.

7/63. Transvascular coil hooking procedure to retrieve an unraveled Guglielmi detachable coil: technical note.

    OBJECTIVE: A patient with an anterior communicating artery aneurysm was treated by use of endovascular coiling, and a Guglielmi detachable coil (boston Scientific/Target, Fremont, CA) fractured distal to its connection to the delivering catheter. The unraveled coil floated out from the aneurysm to extend into the bifurcation of the left middle cerebral artery. We describe the microsurgical procedure used to retrieve the coil after an endovascular approach failed. methods: The left anterior cerebral artery was punctured just below the aneurysm neck, and a titanium microhook was introduced to anchor the coil and pull it out. Slight traction was exerted before sectioning the coil to avoid protrusion of the stump into the parent vessel. RESULTS: The unraveled coil was removed in totality without permanent morbidity. CONCLUSION: This report describes the case of a rare complication of coil embolization treated with a minimal transarterial coil hooking procedure.

8/63. Silicone migration from silicone-injected breasts: magnetic resonance images.

    Injection of liquid silicone into the breast was performed illicitly in the 1950s to 1960s and was subsequently prohibited. Many complications arise from silicone injection, and liquid silicone migration is a complication that has not been widely reported. The authors present magnetic resonance images of a patient with liquid silicone migration from the breast to the upper chest and lower neck. breast ultrasonographic and mammographic findings are also presented for correlation.

9/63. Endoscopic management of an unusual foreign body in the urinary bladder leading to intractable symptoms.

    A 70-year old female patient presented with intractable lower abdominal pain and recurrent urinary tract infection following an endoscopic bladder neck suspension. Investigations revealed it to be a case of suture and pledget migration leading to foreign body granuloma in urinary bladder. It is being reported as an uncommon complication of endoscopic bladder neck suspension. An early endoscopic evaluation should be carried out in cases of unexplained lower urinary tract symptoms following any surgical procedure for incontinence. It is also appropriate to retrieve these foreign bodies endourologically without resorting to open surgery and thus extending safe, comfortable, and short postoperative course with good long term results.

10/63. Ingested nail penetrating the neck in an infant.

    Ingested sharp foreign bodies usually lodge themselves in the pharynx unlike their more common smooth counterparts, which are found in the upper esophagus. These are very rare in infants and pose problems like delayed presentation and occasionally extraluminal migration. A very rare case of through and through penetration of neck by an ingested nail in an infant, which presented 8 months after its ingestion, is reported.
