The lipoma is a very common benign tumor of adipose tissue, but its presence in the oral and oropharyngeal region is relatively uncommon. Fibrolipoma, a histological variant of lipoma, mostly affect the buccal mucosa and causes functional and cosmetic disabilities. Hence, accurate histopathological examination of lipomas is important for a correct treatment… (More)
The generally held belief that early diagnosis and treatment are associated with a greater proportion of localized tumors and better prospects of salvage is not supported in carcinoma of the large intestine. This study is not to be interpreted to mean that purposefully delayed treatment in an individual patient will improve his chances of survival. Its… (More)
Sixty-five patients underwent hemorrhoidectomies for acute thrombosis. All biopsy specimens contained intravascular thrombi. Early postoperative complications included urinary difficulties and bleeding. Late postoperative complications included anal stenosis.
The results of treatment of 137 consecutive patients with fistula-in-ano are presented. Sixty-eight were treated by the 'lay-open' technique and 69 by the Parks technique, the two groups being comparable. The results slightly favour the Parks technique.
A total of 116 one-layer end-to-end anastomoses of the colon and the rectum in 112 patients were studied. Three patients died postoperatively (2.6 per cent). Significant disruption of anastomosis requiring a diverting colostomy occurred in five patients. The study is presented to draw attention to the safety of the single-layer anastomosis.
Traumatic injury to a primary tooth can affect the underlying permanent tooth germ, and may result in a malformed, hypoplastic crown or root. The degree and nature of malformation depends on the injury. Most trauma cases can be diagnosed using conventional 2-dimensional radiographs, but some cases may benefit from more advanced 3-dimensional imaging such as… (More)
Eighty-four patients underwent the Whitehead procedure for extensive hemorrhoids. Early postoperative complications, excluding urinary difficulties, developed in six patients. Long-term results were within an acceptable range.
Radicular cyst is one of the most common odontogenic cystic lesions found in the jaws. It is inflammatory in nature and found mostly in relation to a non-vital tooth. It usually presents at a later stage in life because the formation of the cyst is the last step in the progression of inflammatory events after a periapical infection. The cyst usually goes… (More)
