Background: Laparoscopic treatment of acutely incarcerated inguinal hernia is uncommon and still controversial. Those being performed almost all use the transabdominal (TAPP) approach. The authors here present their experience with totally extraperitoneal (TEP) repair of acutely incarcerated hernia. Methods: A retrospective review was undertaken to evaluate(More)
Gorham-Stout disease (GSD) is a rare vascular disorder of lymphatic origin characterized by progressive osteolysis. Generalized lymphatic anomaly (GLA) is a multisystem disorder that also commonly affects bone. We hypothesized that Gorham-Stout disease is different from other osseous lymphatic anomalies. We proposed to discriminate these entities by(More)
Infantile hemangiomas demonstrate a pattern of proliferative growth in infancy followed by a slow phase of involution. In contrast a rare type of vascular tumor, intramuscular capillary-type hemangioma, usually presents beyond the period of infancy with nonspecific symptoms and no evidence of involution. The purpose of this study was to characterize the(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate initial chest radiographic findings of swine-origin influenza A (S-OIV) (also known as H1N1) viral infection in children. MATERIALS AND METHODS This was an institutional review board-approved, HIPAA-compliant retrospective study of 108 patients who had microbiologically confirmed S-OIV infection and available initial chest radiographs(More)
BACKGROUND The diagnosis and management of vascular anomalies of the extremities can be challenging as these disorders are uncommon and may clinically overlap. The aim of this paper is to describe the clinical, radiologic, and histopathologic features of fibro-adipose vascular anomaly (FAVA), a previously unrecognized disorder of the limb. METHODS The(More)
A 6-year-old boy with massive gastrointestinal bleeding was found to have a large patent ductus venosus (PDV). Systemic symptoms of PDV (eg, hypergalactosemia and hepatic, pulmonary, and cardiac dysfunction) are frequent. However, gastrointestinal bleeding with the presence of a large portosystemic shunt is not a known complication of this anomaly. The(More)
Mulliken and Glowacki's seminal classification of vascular anomalies into vascular tumors (with infantile hemangiomas being paradigmatic) versus nontumorous vascular malformations has been as important in the head and neck region as elsewhere. These latter are congenital, have an equal gender incidence, virtually always grow in size with the patient during(More)
Bone marrow transplantation is frequently performed to restore hematologic and immunologic competence after chemotherapy and radiation therapy for a range of childhood malignancies, as well as to treat various congenital conditions in which hematologic and immunologic functions are depressed or absent. Potentially devastating complications may occur during(More)
The present report describes the authors' experience with the placement and retrieval of inferior vena cava (IVC) filters in children with a maximum IVC diameter of 1 cm. Over a 14-month period, three filters were placed in three children. Two filters were placed via the right internal jugular vein, with one placed via the right femoral vein. The filters(More)
There are only scant published reports of totally extraperitoneal (TEP) repair of recurrence after a primary TEP procedure. Furthermore, at least two authors have made the statement that such an operation is virtually impossible. We have been performing TEP repair of recurrence after TEP since we 1996, and here we present a retrospective review of our(More)
