An accessory aberrant testicular artery branching from the inferior suprarenal artery: embryologic and genetic consideration

Case Report of International Journal of Case Reports An accessory aberrant testicular artery branching from the inferior suprarenal artery: embryologic and genetic consideration Maryna Kornieieva, Sayeh Nabati, Brooke Mower 1PhD, MD, Anatomy, Histology, and Embryology Department, American University of Caribbean School of Medicine, Sint Maarten; 24th year student of the American University of Caribbean School of Medicine, Sint Maarten. During routine educational dissection of a cadaver (61-year-old, male, white descent), multiple aberrant right testicular artery and veins were discovered. Detailed analysis of the abdominal vascular pattern showed that the accessory aberrant testicular artery branched off the right inferior suprarenal artery. It crossed the anterior pararenal space, gave several branches to the soft tissues of the posterior pararenal space, and descended towards the deep inguinal ring. The accessory aberrant testicular vein accompanied the aberrant artery and was drained by the right inferior suprarenal vein into the renal one. Two other testicular veins followed a typical course and opened into the inferior vena cava. The anatomical variability reported in this paper requires attention of the related specialists, as it may significantly complicate surgical and minimally invasive procedures on the organs of the retroperitoneal space and inguinal region. Thorough preoperative investigation regarding the variability of the vascular pattern should be conducted in patients considered for intervention on the adrenal gland, kidney, or testis.

Autologous Tenocyte Implantation for the Treatment of Chronic Degenerative Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy

Case Report of International Journal of Case Reports Autologous Tenocyte Implantation for the Treatment of Chronic Degenerative Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy Bonnie McRae, Jane Fitzpatrick, Hussain Khan McRae - Australasian College of Sport & Exercise Medicine, Griffith University. Fitzpatrick - University of Melbourne, Australasian College of Sport & Exercise Medicine, Joint Health Institute. Khan - Australasian College of Sport & Exercise Medicine, Olympic Park Sports Medicine Centre The use of injectable cell therapies to treat tendon pathology has become significantly more popular in recent years. They are appealing treatment modalities as they are minimally invasive, autologous, non-surgical management options which theoretically allow tendon regeneration and return to function. This case report will focus on the use of autologous tenocyte implantation (ATI) injection therapy to treat chronic degenerative rotator cuff tendinopathy. Keywords: autologous tenocyte implantation, chronic rotator cuff tendinopathy, cell therapy ...

Successful use of a novel biological plug in the percutaneous treatment of a refractory gastro-cutaneous fistula following omental patch repair of perforated peptic ulcer

Case Report of International Journal of Case Reports Successful use of a novel biological plug in the percutaneous treatment of a refractory gastro-cutaneous fistula following omental patch repair of perforated peptic ulcer Allan Stolarski, MD1,2, Katherine He MD1,3, Ducksoo Kim MD4,5, Gentian Kristo, MD1,3 1Department of Surgery, Veterans Affairs Boston Healthcare System, Boston, MA, USA; 2Department of Surgery, Boston Medical Center, Boston University Medical School, Boston, MA, USA; 3Department of Surgery, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA; 4Department of Interventional Radiology, Veterans Affairs Boston Healthcare System, Boston, MA, USA; 5Department of Interventional Radiology, Boston Medical Center, Boston University Medical School, Boston, MA, USA Background: Gastro-cutaneous fistula following re-leak of omental patch repair of perforated peptic ulcer is a very rare but challenging surgical complication. We describe the use of a novel biological plug as a viable repair for gastro-cutaneous fistula that failed medical, endoscopic, and operative management. Additionally, we present a thorough literature review of reported cases of gastro-cutaneous fistulae following omental patching of peptic perforations to further highlight their treatment challenges. Summary: A 69-year-old man underwent repair of a perforated pyloric ulcer with a pedicled omental patch. After one week, patient developed a re-leak from the omental patch, and underwent a second laparotomy with repeat omental patching of the gastric perforation. Ten weeks after the second operation, the patient developed a gastro-cutaneous fistula that failed conservative management with nil per os and enteral nutrition delivered distal to the fistula site; multiple image-guided percutaneous attempts at fistula closure by interventional radiology via fibrin sealant injection and collagen-based vascular closure device; and endoscopic clipping by gastroenterology. Ultimately, this refractory gastro-cutaneous fistula was closed with a novel biological plug (Biodesign® Enterocutaneous Fistula Plug, Cook Biotech). Conclusion: Gastro-cutaneous fistulae following omental patching of perforated peptic ulcer represent a significant complication ...

Immunotargeted Monotherapy by Anti-PD-1 in Patients with Primary Non-small Cell Lung Cancer

Case Report of International Journal of Case Reports Immunotargeted Monotherapy by Anti-PD-1 in Patients with Primary Non-small Cell Lung Cancer SUN Liqiu1*, ZHANG ge1, YU Tingting1, TANG Songyan1, WANG Hongli1 1Department of Oncology, Tumour Hospital of Mudanjiang, Heilongjiang Province, China. The 5-year survival rate of advanced non-small cell lung cancer is less than 5%. In recent years, immunotherapy represented by PD-1 antibody has become the standard treatment recommended by many lung cancer guidelines. With the treatment, the total survival time and quality of life have been significantly prolonged in patients with advanced Primary non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). In this study, the domestic anti-PD-1 monoclonal antibody, Camrelizumab, combined with chemotherapy was used to treat advanced non-small cell lung cancer. The efficacy of Camrelizumab and occurrence of cutaneous capillary hyperplasia (CCEP) were analyzed. Keywords: Primary non-small cell lung cancer; Camrelizumab; Cutaneous capillary endothelial proliferation (CCEP) ...

Patellar tendon rupture in a young adolescent post-Heterotopic Ossification – Uncommon presentation

Case Report of International Journal of Case Reports Patellar tendon rupture in a young adolescent post-Heterotopic Ossification – Uncommon presentation Sam Supreeth, Ismail Al Habsi, Suwailim Al Ghanami, Zahra Al Abri, Khadija Al Adawi, Shenouda M Khoula Hospital Background: Heterotropic ossification is a common entity, but in a young adolescent causing patellar tendon rupture is rare. Case description: A 13-year-old male presented to us with knee pain and inability to extend since six weeks following trivial trauma. Preliminary radiological investigations revealed a high riding patella with ossification in the patella tendon. The magnetic resonance scan confirmed the same with patellar tendon disruption and heterogenous ossification. He underwent surgery with patella tendon repair, augmentation with autograft and had complete recovery at six months follow-up. Conclusion: Heterotropic ossification caused by repetitive trauma leading to disastrous effects. Keywords: Patellar tendon rupture, young adolescent post-Heterotopic Ossification, Uncommon presentation ...
