One of the most important ways to reduce biliary duct injury in laparoscopic cholecystectomy is to achieve the critical view of safety (CVS) before transection of the cystic artery and duct. Documenting CVS is possible with photo prints, video imaging, or both. These documentations can be used as a proof of the right procedure in case of biliary duct(More)
BACKGROUND Fractures of the proximal humerus are associated with a profound temporary and sometimes permanent, impairment of function and quality of life. The treatment of comminuted fractures of the proximal humerus like selected three-or four-part fractures and split fractures of the humeral head is a demanding and unresolved problem, especially in the(More)
To report a serious complication of the StaXx FX system used to stabilize an osteoporotic vertebral fracture. A 76-year-old woman presented with a painful vertebral fracture. Treatment by means of a PEEK wafer kyphoplasty was complicated by malposition of the wafers. The patient recovered fully after removal of the wafers by means of a thoracotomy. New(More)
A new animal model for posttraumatic osteomyelitis was designed. This model mimics the pathogenesis of the human disease more accurately than models presently available. Femora of New Zealand white rabbits were exposed at the greater trochanter and a stainless steel rod was inserted into the marrow cavity. A Staphylococcus aureus suspension was placed in(More)
Two male patients presented to the surgical outpatient clinic with a paramedian abdominal bulge. In the first patient, the hardly known diagnosis linea arcuata hernia (LAH) had been missed at a previous exploration 8 years ago. In the second patient, pre-operative imaging showed an abdominal wall hernia. Diagnostic laparoscopy revealed an LAH. In both(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to evaluate the surgical treatment of stage III empyema. METHODS Between 2002 and 2005, 30 patients underwent surgery for treatment of diagnosed stage III empyema preoperatively. Patients were referred for spirometry to evaluate lung function postoperatively. RESULTS Twenty nine patients underwent primary thoracotomy(More)
The human lung T cell compartment contains many CD8⁺ T cells specific for respiratory viruses, suggesting that the lung is protected from recurring respiratory infections by a resident T cell pool. The entry site for respiratory viruses is the epithelium, in which a subset of lung CD8⁺ T cells expressing CD103 (αE integrin) resides. Here, we determined the(More)
A 24-year-old woman with pain in the right elbow after a fall demonstrated a coronal shear fracture on radiographic studies. Perioperative a coronal shear fracture was seen and treated successfully with a polylactide Rigid fix resorbable pin. The operative correction resulted in normal function at 6 months follow-up. We state that a capitellum shear(More)
Annually approximately 18,044 patients are admitted to Dutch hospitals with hip fractures. This is an increasing demand for medical care due to the increasing amount of elderly people. Although previous studies showed that routine check of X-rays following hip fracture surgery is unnecessary, it remains routine in most clinics in the Netherlands. In(More)
Pericardial cysts are rare but well recognized tumors of the mediastinum. Most pericardial cysts are located in the right or left cardiophrenic angle. At other locations these cysts may pose a diagnostic problem. We present two cases of an atypically located pericardial cyst and a short review of the literature.
