1/229. Acute retention of urine due to prolapsed ectopic ureterocele in an adult male.

    A case is presented of prolapsed ectopic ureterocele which produced severe urinary retention in a 31-year-old male patient. The usefulness of lumbar transcutaneous puncture is emphasized in a case associated with a non-functioning upper pole of a duplex kidney. ( info)

2/229. Conjunctival prolapse: a simple and effective treatment.

    OBJECTIVE: To describe a simple and noninvasive technique to manage conjunctival prolapse and to report its efficacy. DESIGN: Noncomparative, retrospective case series. PARTICIPANTS: Ten consecutive patients encountered over a span of 13 years developed postoperative conjunctival prolapse as a complication from various ocular and orbital procedures. INTERVENTION: The prolapsed tissue is tucked back to its proper position with the aid of jeweler's forceps and a strip of gauze saturated with petroleum jelly and antibiotic ointment; thereafter, a double patch is applied to the closed eyelids. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Successful resolution is usually attained within 48 hours. RESULTS: The technique is easy, efficient, and effective. All ten patients experienced no further complications after resolution. CONCLUSION: Clinicians should consider adopting this noninvasive technique. ( info)

3/229. Esophago-gastric invagination in patients with sliding hiatus hernia.

    intussusception of the distal esophagus into a reducible hiatus hernia is described in nine female and three male patients. The main radiographic feature is demonstration of a lobulated fundal mass of changeable size and configuration surrounding the narrowed distal esophageal segment. This pseudotumor is produced by inversion of the hiatus hernia into the stomach, and may be mistaken for a neoplasm. Disinvagination invariably occurs when maneuvers directed toward demonstration of a sliding hernia are utilized during upper gastrointestinal fluoroscopy. It is emphasized that esophago-gastric invagination frequently accounts for masses shown in the cardia of older women with intermittent dysphagia and crampy epigastric pain. ( info)

4/229. Endoscopic management of prolapsing intravesical ureterocele in an adult female--a case report.

    The authors present a case of intravesical ureterocele in a female which prolapsed out of the external urethral meatus causing urinary obstruction, and was managed by reduction into the bladder followed by endoincision. ( info)

5/229. Nephroptosis: the Tc-99m glucoheptonate scan as a diagnostic method.

    A 40-year-old man was examined because he was a potential "healthy" renal donor. However, the routine work-up before surgery revealed hypertension, although there was no family history of this condition. The patient was examined to exclude secondary causes of hypertension. Tc-99m glucoheptonate renal imaging showed nephroptosis of the right kidney when the patient was standing, and this may have been the cause of the hypertension. ( info)

6/229. Defects of the external auditory canal: a new reconstruction technique.

    This report describes the clinical and radiographic findings together with surgical management of temporomandibular joint contents herniation through the tympanic plate of the external auditory canal. Two patients are reported. A review of the literature is presented, including a brief discussion of the embryological development of the external auditory canal. Excluding infection, trauma or neoplasm, the defect in the tympanic plate of the external auditory canal represents a developmental aberration with failure of the foramen of Huschke to close during development. A pre-auricular approach with insertion and fixation of an onlay polyethylene implant to prevent prolapse of the peri-articular tissues into the ear canal is presented and described. ( info)

7/229. Traumatic displacement of the globe into the ethmoid sinus.

    PURPOSE: To describe displacement of the globe into the ethmoid sinus after an orbital trauma. METHOD: Case report. A 58-year-old man sustained trauma of the left eye and orbit, which resulted in displacement of the globe into the ethmoid sinus. One day after injury, surgery was performed to restore the intact globe into position within the orbit. RESULTS: After operation, the globe held in its anatomical site, and 10 months after surgery the visual acuity was 20/100, slight pallor of the optic disk was present, and there was no limitation of the horizontal and vertical ductions. CONCLUSIONS: To our knowledge, this is the first case of traumatic displacement of the globe into the ethmoid sinus with satisfactory restoration of normal globe position and preservation of vision.

8/229. Calcified bicuspid aortic valve mass prolapsing into the left main coronary artery.

    We report a case of a mobile calcific mass on the aortic valve that prolapsed into the left main coronary artery of a 51-year-old man. This case and a review of the literature suggest that calcific embolization to coronary arteries is a rare but possibly underrecognized complication of calcified degenerative or bicuspid aortic valves. This potentially catastrophic complication of calcified aortic valves needs to be suspected and recognized in clinical practice. ( info)

9/229. Vaginal repair of a sigmoidocele.

    Sigmoidocele is an uncommon accompaniment of pelvic prolapse. It is difficult to detect a sigmoidocele during clinical pelvic examination, and as a consequence a sigmoidocele may be unexpectedly encountered during vaginal repair of pelvic prolapse. The author has discovered and repaired a sigmoidocele during vaginal surgery in 4 patients with either complete procidentia or vaginal vault eversion. The procedure involves a modification of the bilateral sacrospinous vaginal vault fixation using two additional sutures to suspend the sigmoid colon from the sacrospinous ligament. Clinical and functional results have been excellent. This is the first description of a vaginal approach to the repair of a sigmoidocele. ( info)

10/229. prolapse of the fallopian tube after hysterectomy associated with exuberant angiomyofibroblastic stroma response: a diagnostic pitfall.

    We report two cases of prolapse of the fallopian tube associated with an exuberant angiomyofibroblastic stroma response, which occurred after hysterectomy and which is a hitherto unreported feature of this lesion. The tumors were composed of richly vascularized stroma arranged in a retiform pattern and mildly atypical glandular inclusions, which had the morphology of tubal epithelium. The stroma of the lesion was composed of either thin bipolar cells with tapered nuclei and stellate-shaped cells with minimal amount of cytoplasm or small epithelioid-looking cells with eosinophilic cytoplasm. The tubal glandular inclusions displayed mildly atypical nuclear features. If the tubal glandular component was overlooked, these tumors might be erroneously diagnosed as mesenchymal lesions of the vagina, such as vaginal fibroepithelial polyp, angiomyofibroblastoma, aggressive angiomyxoma, or superficial myofibroblastoma.
