1/15. Intravascular migration of fractured sternal wire presenting with hemoptysis.

    We present a rare complication of median sternotomy in which a segment of fractured sternal wire punctured the heart, embolized to the right lung, and eroded into a bronchus causing massive hemoptysis. It was safely removed through a median sternotomy. Sternal wire fracture or migration is diagnosed easily on chest roentgenograms, but frequently goes unnoticed. Sternal wire failure can be managed nonoperatively; however, repair is indicated if fractured wires are displaced or potentially migratory.

2/15. 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.

3/15. Colonoscopic identification of a foreign body causing an hepatic abscess.

    BACKGROUND: Hepatic abscesses often result from a perforation of the gastrointestinal tract. Although rare, this may occur via puncture by a foreign body. The object may directly extend from the stomach or duodenum into the liver, or rarely, the object may perforate the bowel distal to the duodenum and indirectly extend to the liver leading to the formation of an abscess. CASE REPORT: A 44-year-old man developed an hepatic abscess. Although the abscess was identified on computed tomography, various imaging studies were unable to identify the cause of the infection. After an extended ICU course, the patient was deemed stable enough to undergo a colonoscopy that demonstrated a foreign body penetrating through the wall of the sigmoid colon. CONCLUSIONS: Here we describe the first report of a foreign body leading to a hepatic abscess where the object was identified by colonoscopy. In addition, we present a comprehensive literature review examining the method of identification of gastrointestinal foreign bodies that led to liver abscesses. These findings emphasize that in cases of hepatic abscesses of unknown etiology, direct visualization by colonoscopy may be a useful tool to elucidate the cause of the abscess.

4/15. Silicone oil migration in the eyelid after vitrectomy for retinal detachment.

    PURPOSE: To report a case of silicone oil intrusion in the upper eyelid, expressed by ptosis occurrence 19 years after surgery. methods: vitrectomy followed by transscleral subretinal fluid drainage and silicone oil tamponade was performed on a 57-year-old man for retinal detachment. Nineteen years later, the patient was referred for mobile subcutaneous lumps of the upper right eyelid. Preoperative examination showed total invasion of the eyelid by silicone oil, as confirmed by pathology. RESULTS: Silicone oil leak developed through the transscleral drainage lumen and worsened with ocular hypertension. We assume that ptosis was induced by the weight of inflammatory tissue and consequently the development of a lymphoedema. CONCLUSION: We report a case of silicone ptosis. Two concomitant factors induced oil leakage: the puncture site and postoperative hypertonia.

5/15. Recovery of intralipid from lumbar puncture after migration of saphenous vein catheter.

    A term female infant was admitted to the intensive care unit with the diagnosis of tetralogy of fallot with critical pulmonary stenosis. On the seventh day of life a long saphenous line was inserted that remained without complications until seven days later when the infant appeared septic. A lumbar puncture demonstrated the presence of intra-lipid in the cerebrospinal fluid that we interpreted as due to migration of the saphenous catheter. The child had an uneventful recovery.

6/15. acupuncture complication--a case report.

    A migrating, broken acupuncture needle inserted 28 years prior, impinged the L5 nerve root causing severe chronic pain which was relieved by surgical removal. Worldwide literature revealed an unexpected and surprising number of serious complications from acupuncture treatment.

7/15. subarachnoid hemorrhage and spinal root injury caused by acupuncture needle--case report.

    The authors report a case of subarachnoid hemorrhage and spinal root injury caused by an acupuncture needle buried in the posterior neck about 30 years before onset. A 33-year-old female presented with sudden onset of severe occipital headaches. Plain x-ray films of the cervical spine revealed a fine gold needle, about 1.5 cm in length, between the C1 and C2 vertebrae. The needle was piercing the spinal nerve root through the dural vein, and was removed. Postoperatively, the pain exacerbated by neck movement disappeared.

8/15. Delayed cardiac tamponade and hemothorax induced by an acupuncture needle.

    We report a 52-year-old man who presented with cardiac tamponade a few years after accidental breakage of an acupuncture needle that had not been removed. thoracotomy showed a hemopericardium with penetration of the pulmonary artery by the very fine needle which was barely detected on the chest roentgenogram. This lesion was not suspected on the basis of roentgenography, two-dimensional echocardiography, or computed tomography, but was detected by the presence of other thick needles in the neck, chest and abdomen. This case showed a possible threat of 'stealthy' and migrating foreign bodies, such as very fine acupuncture needles.

9/15. Fixed intravascular foreign bodies: a new method for removal.

    Percutaneous removal of centrally located, embolized, intravascular foreign bodies is essential. A technique was developed to shift fixed foreign bodies into a position where they may be grasped and eventually removed with a snare or Dormia basket. It involves insertion by bilateral femoral vein puncture of a curved-end catheter and a second catheter attached to a Dormia basket set. A wire passed through the first catheter is grasped with the Dormia basket, and the foreign body is mobilized by means of traction on both catheter systems.

10/15. Complications of percutaneous transtracheal procedures.

    The increasing use of transtracheal procedures by various specialties has caused a rash of new complications which have interested the endoscopist. These complications have resulted from the many diagnostic and therapeutic procedures involving the percutaneous puncture of the laryngeal or tracheal air space. The validity of these procedures is not questioned. However, they have spawned a host of diverse and bizarre complications which have led to serious and even fatal problems. The role of the endoscopist as a consultant in both the diagnosis and therapy of these developments must be understood and stressed.
