We evaluated the significance of magnetic resonance imaging findings in patients with patellar tendinitis. Midline sagittal magnetic resonance images were taken of 12 knees from 10 patients and of 17 knees from 15 age- and activity-matched subjects who underwent imaging for reasons other than patellar tendinitis. Of the 12 magnetic resonance imaging scans(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Small-bowel obstruction (SBO) is a common surgical emergency that occurs in 9% of patients after abdominal surgery. Up to 73% are caused by peritoneal adhesions. The primary purpose of this study was to compare the rate of SBOs between patients who underwent laparoscopic (LPS) and those who had open (OPS) colorectal surgery. The(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study is to investigate the impact of age on short-term outcomes after colorectal surgery in terms of the 30-day postoperative morbidity and mortality rates. METHODS The subjects for the study were patients who had undergone colorectal surgery. Patients were divided into 2 groups according to age; groups A and B patients were ≥80(More)
This review aimed to determine the overall sensitivity and specificity of indocyanine green (ICG) near-infrared (NIR) fluorescence in sentinel lymph node (SLN) detection in Colorectal cancer (CRC). A systematic search in electronic databases was conducted. Twelve studies including 248 patients were reviewed. The median sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy(More)
OBJECTIVES We report a clinical case series for construction of Mainz II or double folded rectosigmoid pouch with suitable antireflux uretero-intestinal anastomosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Ninety-five patients with invasive bladder carcinoma were treated by radical cystectomy and supravesical urinary shunt in form of either Mainz II {56 (58.9%)} or double(More)
Laparoscopic ventral mesh rectopexy (LVR) is gaining wider acceptance as the preferred procedure to correct internal as well as external rectal prolapse associated with obstructed defecation syndrome (ODS) and/or fecal incontinence. Very few reports exist on the use of biological mesh for LVR [1]. We report a case of a mesh extrusion after 9 months after an(More)
PURPOSE This review reports the incidence of mesh-related erosion after ventral mesh rectopexy to determine whether any difference exists in the erosion rate between synthetic and biological mesh. METHODS A systematic search of the MEDLINE and the Ovid databases was conducted to identify suitable articles published between 2004 and 2015. The search(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to understand the reason for variation in the sensitivity of different methods of detecting right-to-left shunts (RLS). BACKGROUND Patent foramen ovale (PFO) is implicated in the pathogenesis of cryptogenic stroke, decompression illness, and migraine headaches. Intravenous agitated saline injections with(More)
Egypt is an agricultural based country. Its development primarily depends upon rural resources. Agriculture contributes approximately 14% of the GDP and absorbs about 31% of workforce. About 53% population lives in rural areas where directly or indirectly their livelihood depends upon agricultural sector. Despite its positive and significant contributions(More)
