1/49. liver transplantation in patients with situs inversus.

    Two patients with situs inversus and biliary atresia were treated with hepatic transplantation, one with an auxiliary liver and the other with an orthotopic graft which was placed using a piggy-back technique. Both transplants functioned well initially. The auxiliary liver was rejected after 1 1/2 months, and the patient died after an attempt at retransplantation many months later. The recipient of the orthotopic liver has perfect liver function 10 months postoperatively.

2/49. Combined Rastelli and atrial switch procedure: a 10-year follow-up.

    We performed a combined atrial (Mustard) and ventricular (Rastelli) repair on a previously palliated patient with situs inversus, atrioventricular discordance, ventricular septal defect, and pulmonary atresia. The suitability and durability of this operative strategy is supported by the satisfactory hemodynamic and functional status of the patient 10 years later.

3/49. The treatment of portal hypertension by videolaparoscopy in situs inversus totalis.

    A rare case of a 32-year-old male with situs inversus totalis viscerum admitted to hospital for hematemesis owing to portal hypertension of Laennec cirrhosis was treated for the first time by videolaparoscopic surgery. situs inversus diagnosis was confirmed by thoracic radiography, electrocardiogram, echocardiogram, abdominal echography and computed tomography. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy showed esophageal varices and large varices in the fundus of the stomach. A successful operation (azygo-portal disconnection, splenic artery ligation without splenectomy; transesophageal suturing of esophageal varices without opening the esophagus and cholecystectomy), was performed by videolaparoscopy. The uneventful postoperative evolution (4-day hospitalization) reinforces the viability of the videolaparoscopic approach and the possibility of the application of this procedure even to situs inversus totalis organorum.

4/49. liver transplantation from situs inversus to situs inversus.

    Congenital anatomic anomalies often present technical obstacles during liver transplantation. biliary atresia (BA) is the most common indication for liver transplantation in children, and up to 28% of children with situs inversus are complicated by BA. A boy aged 2 years 11 months with BA, situs inversus, and dextrocardia received a liver transplant from his father. The donor also had situs inversus and dextrocardia without other anomalies. Graft function was excellent postoperatively, and no significant complications were encountered. This is only the second report of the successful use of a living related donor graft for a patient with BA and situs inversus. This case was particularly rare because the donor also had situs inversus, which made the present procedure more feasible.

5/49. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy in situs inversus totalis: is it safe?

    A 46-year-old woman with known situs inversus totalis and recent mitral valve replacement presented with nausea and vomiting. ultrasonography demonstrated a left-sided microlithiasic gall-bladder. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy was performed successfully. The postoperative recovery was uneventful. The literature on this subject is reviewed.

6/49. Feasibility of laparoscopic cholecystectomy in situs inversus.

    PURPOSE: To address the feasibility and safety of laparoscopic cholecystectomy in situs inversus and highlight the necessary modifications in the surgical technique. patients AND methods: We present our experience in two patients with situs inversus and symptomatic gallstones who were treated successfully by laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The surgeon stood on the right side with the video monitor above the patient's left shoulder. Two 10-mm ports were placed in the epigastric and subumbilical positions. Two 5-mm ports were placed in the left mid-clavicular and left anterior axillary lines. The two procedures were carried out uneventfully after reorientation of the visual-motor skills of the surgeon and cameraman to the left upper quadrant. A summary of a further similar 13 cases so far treated in the English-language medical literature is also presented. RESULTS: Skeletonizing the structures in Calot's triangle consumed extra time and was more difficult than in patients with a normally sited gallbladder. However, the hospital stay and postoperative complications were similar. CONCLUSION: Laparoscopic cholecystectomy in situs inversus seems to be feasible and safe provided it is performed by an expert laparoscopic surgeon who takes time in clearly demonstrating the extrahepatic mirror image anatomy of the biliary tree with its right-to-left shift.

7/49. Surgical correction of unusual double-outlet right ventricle.

    This paper presents the case history of an 8-year-old girl who had total situs inversus and double-outlet right ventricle with pulmonary stenosis and severe tricuspid insufficiency in the presence of dextrocardia with ventricular discordance. A successful repair was performed using the Rastelli technique in conjunction with replacement of the tricuspid valve with a Bjork-Shiley prosthesis. The postoperative course was uneventful, and follow-up catheterization revealed a good operative result. However, the patient died suddenly during an emotionally upsetting period about two months after the operation. Postmortem examination revealed only signs of moderately severe cardiac decompensation. Some anatomical and embryological comments are made.

8/49. Laparascopic sigmoid colectomy for diverticular disease in a patient with situs inversus.

    We present the case of a 50-year-old man with situs inversus who underwent laprascopic colonic resection for diverticulitis. The patient, who had right-sided pain due to inversion of the viscera mimicking appendicitis, initially presented a diagnostic challenge. A barium meal confirmed situs inversus and the diagnosis of diverticulitis. We present an overview of the operative technique of what is the first documented laparoscopic colectemy in a patient with situs inversus. We then discuss the benefits of the laproscopic approach to colectomy, with reference to this interesting case with unusual anatomy.

9/49. A case of acute aortic dissection type A in a patient with situs inversus.

    We report a case of acute aortic dissection type A in a patient with situs inversus. A 33-year-old male, complaining of sudden chest pain, visited our institute. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography and echocardiography suggested Stanford type A acute aortic dissection and dextrocardia. Aortic root and ascending aortic replacement were successfully performed. Antegrade brain-isolated extracorporeal circulation was established. The aortic branch arteries were mirror-image reversed. Anatomic positional relationships and presence or absence of concurrent anomalies should be sufficiently investigated preoperatively in patients with dextrocardia. His postoperative course was uneventful and a postoperative computed tomographic scan confirmed a good result.

10/49. situs inversus totalis with malignant lymphoma of the stomach: report of a case.

    situs inversus totalis is a rare congenital anomaly that often occurs concomitantly with other disorders. We report a case of situs inversus totalis with malignant lymphoma of the stomach, which was successfully treated by surgery followed by chemotherapy and irradiation. The patient was a 51-year-old woman who present with colicky pain in the left upper quadrant of her abdomen. Chest X-ray showed a right-sided heart, and ultrasonography and computed tomography (CT) of the abdomen showed a situs inversus totalis with multiple gallstones in the gallbladder. Tree-dimensional reconstructed CT of the abdomen showed no other malformations coexisting with situs inversus totalis, but a barium upper gastrointestinal series found an inverted stomach and an elevated tumor with ulceration in the center, localized in the antrum of the stomach. First, we performed a cholecystectomy, followed by a total gastrectomy with dissection of the lymph nodes and splenectomy, and Roux-en-Y reconstruction. Histopathological examination confirmed a diagnosis of malignant lymphoma of the stomach (diffuse large B-cell type) with metastasis to the regional lymph nodes. Chemotherapy using the CHOP regimen was given three times, starting 1 month postoperatively. A followup CT scan showed enlargement of one lymph node around the abdominal aorta and irradiation was delivered to the area of the inverted Y in the abdomen. At the time of writing, 10 months after surgery, the patient is well with no signs of recurrence and leading a normal life. Careful preoperative assessment is very important for determining the most appropriate surgical procedure in patients with situs inversus totalis associated with a malignancy.
