Case Report of American Journal of Surgical Research and Reviews INCISIONAL HERNIA IN PREGNANCY A SILENT BUT POTENTIAL FATALITY - CASE REPORT Jombo SE*1, Emejulu CI 2, Obi RA1, Onwusulu DN1, Iloh AA2, Ilikannu SO1 1Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, FMC, Asaba 2General Surgery Unit,   Department of Surgery, FMC, Asaba. Rupture of incisional hernia, with consequent emergency laparotomy and repair, is an uncommon complication of pregnancy. The risk to the mother and baby is enormous. We present an un-booked 29 year old G4P2+1 (1- alive) with one previous caesarean section at 29 weeks of gestation. She had a huge anterior abdominal wall incisional hernia with gravid uterus as content. She was admitted on conservative management on account of abdominal pain and preterm contractions, but subsequently developed spontaneous rupture from an ulcer with bowel evisceration. She had emergency laparotomy and repair but unfortunately had unavoidable bowels injury as they were morbidly adherent to the anterior abdominal wall with injury necessitating resection and re-anastomosis with caesarean section. The neonate suffered early neonatal death. The presence of ulceration may be a predictor of adverse maternal and foetal outcome Keywords: Incisional hernia in pregnancy, ulceration, emergency laparotomy, bowel resection and anastomosis, caesarean section ...


Research Article of American Journal of Surgical Research and Reviews EXERESIS OF SIALOLYTIASIS ASSOCIATED WITH CHRONIC FIBROSIS IN THE RIGHT SUBMANDIBULAR REGION Camilla Siqueira de Aguiar1*, Evellyn Rayane Martins de Oliveira1, Lohana Maylane Aquino Correia de Lima1, Marcela Côrte Real Fernandes1, Ana Luíza Ingelbert Silva1, Ricardo Eugenio Varela Ayres de Melo1. 1UFPE Introduction: Known as inflammation of the salivary glands, sialodenitis can be classified as acute, subacute or chronic.  It has obstructive factors as its main causality concomitant with the rare occurrence of sialolithiasis.

It has an epidemiologically predilection for men and its diagnosis is made through imaging tests such as ultrasound and panoramic radiography as well as through the digit-palmar evaluation of the professional.  Surgical exeresis has been studied as the best approach for these cases, avoiding loss of function or recurrence. Objective: To report the case of a 71-year-old female patient diagnosed by the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and Traumatology Service of the Federal University of Pernambuco of  School Dentistry with sialolithiasis injury associated with chronic sialodenitis with fibrosis in the submandibular gland.
