A 58-year-old male presented as an acute emergency in severe haemodynamic shock.(More)

However, to avoid serious biliovascular injury, conversion is advocated for distorted anatomy at the Calot's triangle. The aim is to find out whether our technique of laparoscopic modified subtotal cholecystectomy (LMSC) is suitable, with an(More)
BACKGROUND Direct targeting of subthalamic nucleus (STN) without secondary electrophysiological verification during deep brain stimulation (DBS) is replacing atlas-based indirect targeting techniques. Recent groups have reported increased contrast and better delineation of STN and substantia nigra (SNr) in susceptibility-weighted imaging protocols (SWI). We(More)
We describe a case of an acute paraoesophageal hernia in the early post-operative period following a laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication. Patient developed intraoperative tension pneumothorax requiring an immediate chest drain and subsequently needed respiratory support of a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) ventilation.
