Autologous Tenocyte Implantation (ATI) and the Use of Collagen Scaffolds: a Case Report of a Novel Surgical Treatment for Gluteal Tendon Repair
Case Report of International Journal of Case Reports Autologous Tenocyte Implantation (ATI) and the Use of Collagen Scaffolds: a Case Report of a Novel Surgical Treatment for Gluteal Tendon Repair John M O’Donnell1,2, Rowan Flanagan3, Jane Fitzpatrick4,5 1Hip Arthroscopy Australia, Richmond, Australia; 2Swinburne University, Melbourne, Australia; 3The Northern Hospital, Melbourne, Australia; 4Centre for Health and Exercise Sports Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences, University of Melbourne, Australia; 5Joint Health Institute Ltd, Melbourne, Australia Background: Ortho-biological therapies such as platelet-rich plasma and autologous tenocyte implantation injections are hypothesized to introduce cellular mediators such as growth factors into tendons, promoting natural healing. Methods: This case introduces a 63-year-old female with an extensive history of lateral hip pain and treatment refractory tendinopathy with tearing. She underwent open surgery to repair the gluteus medius tendon, using supplementary autologous tenocyte implantation (ATI) in conjunction with a Celgro (Orthocell, Perth, Australia) collagen scaffold. Level of evidence: 4 Results: She had normal function in the hip at 12 months. MRI scans post-operatively at 12 ...

Virus transmission through fragmented flight in cooked meat fumes at more than 10 meters of distance, a case report with SARS-CoV2 / COVID19
Case Report of International Journal of Case Reports Virus transmission through fragmented flight in cooked meat fumes at more than 10 meters of distance, a case report with SARS-CoV2 / COVID19 Florent Pirot Independent researcher Meat is a known virus carrier and its ability to spread viruses is shown here in a different way. Meat fumes from a cooking process carrying a virus led to indirect contamination. Keywords: Virus transmission; fragmented flight; cooked meat fumes; SARS-CoV2 / COVID19 ...

Extra-synovial Pigmented Villonodular Synovitis of the knee joint, Case Repor

Extra-synovial Pigmented Villonodular Synovitis of the knee joint, Case Repor
Case Report of International Journal of Case Reports Extra-synovial Pigmented Villonodular Synovitis of the knee joint, Case Repor Rebar Mohammed Noori, Musaab Mohammed Hazim* Department of Orthopedic Surgery, School of Medicine, University of Sulaimaniya, Iraq. Background: PVNS is a rare, benign & aggressive disorder arising from either synovial joints or tendon sheaths; it may erode articular structures and bones. We present a case with unique features of PVNS being extra-synovial and by this report we open a gate for more researches in this field. Case Presentation: This case report concerns a 35-year-old female with a history of right knee pain for 6-month duration proceeded by gradual swelling over posterior aspect of the knee, she denies any history of trauma, clinical examination was unremarkable but apart from tenderness over the infrapatellar region with full flexion. MRI shows a heterogenous signal extra-articular and extra-synovial lesion in posterior aspect of the knee suggesting Pigmented Villonodular Synovitis, FNA revealed a hemosiderin-laden macrophages and multinucleated giant cells, Tru-cut biopsy result was suggesting PVNS as ...

Identification of Interictal Paroxysmal Diffuse Sharp Activity with Eye Closure in Patients with Generalized Epilepsy

Identification of Interictal Paroxysmal Diffuse Sharp Activity with Eye Closure in Patients with Generalized Epilepsy
Case Report of International Journal of Case Reports Identification of Interictal Paroxysmal Diffuse Sharp Activity with Eye Closure in Patients with Generalized Epilepsy Mary Payne, MD*, Mary Miller RPSSGT, RST, R.NCS.T, CNCT, R.EEG.T Marshall University, Cabell Huntington Hospital. Interictal EEG recordings of patients with generalized epilepsy have known interictal abnormalities such as generalized spike and wave activity during photic stimulation and hyperventilation, interictal spike and wave or diffuse sharp activity [1]. We report three patients with confirmed generalized epilepsy who’s interictal recordings showed paroxysmal diffuse sharp 10 Hz activity in all leads with eye closure following eye blinking. This pattern was not associated with interictal generalized spike and wave activity, clinical change in the patient or did not follow seizure activity. Abnormal eye movement with generalized spike and wave activity has been described in Jeavon’s syndrome, eyelid myotonia and Sunflower syndrome. However, our patients did not meet criteria for any of these diagnoses. Therefore, we feel that our finding of paroxysmal diffuse sharp alpha activity is a novel finding ...

Intestinal anastomosis blowout following post-operative cardiopulmonary resuscitation: A case report

Intestinal anastomosis blowout following post-operative cardiopulmonary resuscitation: A case report
Case Report of International Journal of Case Reports Intestinal anastomosis blowout following post-operative cardiopulmonary resuscitation: A case report Olivia A. Sacks, MD1,2, Priyanka Chugh, MD1,2, Katherine He, MD1,3, Allan Stolarski, MD1,2, Gentian Kristo, MD1,3* 1Department of Surgery, Veterans Affairs Boston Healthcare System, Boston, MA, USA; 2Department of Sur¬gery, Boston Medical Center, Boston University Medical School, Boston, MA, USA; 3Department of Surgery, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA. Background: Pneumoperitoneum following cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a very rare complication with a challenging management. In this paper we describe the management of a patient who suffered a blowout of his colorectal anastomosis after undergoing CPR for a cardiac arrest in the early post-operative period. Additionally, we present a thorough literature review of the management of CPR-related pneumoperitoneum. Summary: Five days after a sigmoid resection for colon cancer, a 71-year-old male went into pulseless electrical activity and CPR was initiated, with complete clinical recovery. After CPR the patient was found to have new hydropneumothorax and pneumoperitoneum. Because he ...

Post Appendectomy Blindness, Extremely rare complication after abdominal surgery

Post Appendectomy Blindness, Extremely rare complication after abdominal surgery
Case Report of International Journal of Case Reports Post Appendectomy Blindness, Extremely rare complication after abdominal surgery Maram Salah1, Mohannad Al-Tarakji2, Fakhar Shahid11, Syed Muhammad Ali2*, Khalid Ahmed2, Ahmad Zarour2 1Department of Surgery, Hamad Medical Corporation, P O Box 3050, Doha, Qatar. 2Department of Acute Care Surgery, Hamad Medical Corporation, P O Box 3050, Doha, Qatar. Perioperative visual loss (POVL) is a drastic complication that can result after ocular and more commonly non-ocular surgery, mostly reported after spine and cardiac bypass procedures. Despite the rarity of such complication, it has been reported following the abdominal surgeries. Overall, the most common cause of POVL is ischemic optic neuropathy but any pathology to the optical system from the cornea to the occipital lobe can lead to this rare phenomenon. Here, we are reporting the second case in the literature of post-operative visual loss after laparoscopic appendectomy. A young female, with no underlying disease, underwent laparoscopic appendectomy after septic shock secondary to acute appendicitis. Postoperatively, patient complained of complete blindness after extubation ...
