1/283. The radiology corner: Longitudinal fistulous tract of the colon and a perianal fistula in diverticulitis.

    Diverticular disease may mimic many of the symptoms and signs of Crohn's disease. The presence, however, of perirectal involvement and a longitudinal fistula greater than 10 cm. in the wall of the colon are two unusual features of diverticular disease. Discussed herein is a patient who presented with both of these complications. ( info)

2/283. Management of prostatic fistulas.

    Prostatic fistulas communicating with the rectum or perineal skin are unusual complications of a prostatic operation, pelvic trauma, prostatic abscess or other iatrogenic injury. A third of these fistulas may close spontaneously with proper urinary drainage and avoidance of fecal soilage. The many operative procedures described for the repair of these fistulas indicate that no ideal method of repair can be applied to every case. Operative management should be mandated by the size, location and duration of the fistula as well as by the surgeon's experience with the various anatomic approaches. ( info)

3/283. High-pouch imperforate anus treated by electromagnetic bougienage and subsequent perineal repair.

    Four male infants with imperforate anus were treated by electromagnetic bougienage and subsequent perineal anoplasty with division of rectourethral fistula. Each had high-pouch imperforate anus of the supralevator type, with rectourethral fishtula at or above the level of the membranous urethra. Perineal anoplasty was accomplished in all four, with division of the rectourethral fistula, avoiding the need to do a sacral-abdominal-perineal procedure, as had been customary previously in similar cases.

4/283. Laparoscopic ileocecal resection for Crohn's disease associated with intestinal stenosis and ileorectal fistula.

    Although a complete remission of Crohn's disease can be induced by conservative therapy, surgical treatment is often required for patients with intestinal stenosis or fistulas, for whom minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery appears to be most appropriate. We herein report on a 26-year-old patient with Crohn's disease, who presented with an ileorectal fistula and severe stenosis of the terminal ileum and thus underwent laparoscopic surgery. The ileorectal fistula was divided intracorporeally using an autostapling device. The return to full activity after laparoscopic surgery is earlier than after open surgery, and the former approach is often beneficial for some patients with Crohn's disease. This is the first report of laparoscopic surgery for Crohn's disease associated with ileorectal fistula. ( info)

5/283. Two cases of seminal vesicle fistula.

    Two cases of fistulation into the seminal vesicles are described. One related to Crohn's disease and the other following surgery for carcinoma of the rectum. Both cases were diagnosed by CT sinography. This technique is described and is recommended when attempting to demonstrate the internal communications of difficult perineal fistulae when standard techniques of fistulography fail. ( info)

6/283. Pyloric atresia associated with epidermolysis bullosa, malrotation, and high anorectal malformation with recto-urethral fistula: a report of successful management.

    Pyloric atresia (PA) is an uncommon anomaly that may be associated with many other congenital anomalies, the commonest of which is junctional epidermolysis bullosa (JEB). Most of the cases of PA associated with JEB (Herlitz syndrome) reported have been fatal. A case of PA associated with JEB, malrotation, and a high anorectal malformation with a rectourethral fistula, which was hitherto undescribed, was successfully managed at our institution. ( info)

7/283. Rectovesical fistula treated by covered self-expanding prosthesis: report of a case.

    Postoperative rectovesical fistulas require surgical intervention for their treatment. We present a case treated by placement of a silicone self-expanding prosthesis in the rectum and vesical drainage and give technical details of the procedure. ( info)

8/283. Anterior sacral meningocele associated with a rectal fistula. Case report and review of the literature.

    The authors report a case of anterior sacral meningocele associated with a rectal fistula in a patient who had presented 20 years earlier with bacterial meningitis. To their knowledge, this is the first case in which a rectal fistula developed due to an anterior sacral meningocele. The clinical presentation, diagnosis, and treatment of this uncommon lesion is discussed. ( info)

9/283. Ileo-rectal fistula complicating advanced ovarian carcinoma.

    Fistula between the bowels and an ovarian carcinoma is recognized but rare complication. Internal malignant fistula of the gastrointestinal tract involving two or more loops of different segments of the bowel and genitourinary structure are rare. The colon is frequently one of the participating loops. In reviewing the literature, however, we were unable to find a previous report of ileo-rectal fistula as a complication of an ovarian carcinoma. A case report and review of the English medical literature are presented with emphasis on the cause, clinical presentation, and management of advanced ovarian cancer with ileo-rectal involvement. ( info)

10/283. Prostatorectal fistula associated with tubular colorectal duplication.

    Tubular colonic duplications are exceedingly rare. The authors present an unusual case of a boy with a persistent prostatorectal fistula resulting from a tubular colorectal duplication. The current case is unique for 2 reasons: (1) the presence of a fistula without any concomitant genitourinary anomalies and (2) the existence of a prostatorectal fistula. ( info)
