Situs inversus is often detected incidentally in adults during imaging for a acute surgical emergency. We present a case of acute appendicitis in an adult who was previously unaware about his situs anomaly. A laparoscopic approach is helpful to deal with this condition. A 40 year old man was admitted with history of acute left lower abdominal pain, with(More)
BACKGROUND Acute abdominal pain is a common cause for presentation to the emergency room and hospital admission. Many of these patients will undergo exploration for suspected appendicitis, but in 20-35% of cases a normal appendix is found. Because of the limited access provided by the gridiron incision, a definitive diagnosis may not be found. Other(More)

BACKGROUND Recurrence after ventral hernia repair is a common problem worldwide. Laparoscopic mesh repair has been associated with fewer recurrences and also minimal morbidity. The technique of the laparoscopic repair is based on the principle described by Stoppa, however the hernial sac is not dissected and is left behind. This minimizes difficult(More)
BACKGROUND Aim of this study was to compare the result of open and laparoscopic repair of perforated peptic ulcers in terms of operation time, postoperative pain, hospital stay, and wound infection. METHODS Clinical notes of 152 patients who underwent the operative closure of perforated peptic ulcers from 1996 to 2006 were available for study. All(More)
BACKGROUND An ovary can, occasionally, be found in an inguinal hernia in the newborn female. This is extremely rare in premenopausal women. We report a case of an ovulating ovary in an incarcerated inguinal hernia. There is only one similar case of incarcerated ovulating ovary reported in the literature. METHOD AND FINDINGS A 23-year-old Turkish woman,(More)
BACKGROUND The Hartmann procedure is a standard life-saving operation for acute left colonic complications. It is usually performed as a temporary procedure with the intent to reverse it later on. This reversal is associated with considerable morbidity and mortality by open method. The laparoscopic reestablishment of intestinal continuity after Hartmann(More)
There are rare reports of necrotizing fasciitis (NF) following laparoscopic surgery. The clinical presentation of this condition may be delayed due to non-specific symptoms and sign. The diagnosis is essentially clinical and early recognition is crucial in the management. We present a case of NF of the lower abdominal wall extending to thigh, scrotum and(More)
Tackers (mesh fixation devices) are often used for securing the mesh in the laparoscopic repair of ventral, inguinal and hiatus hernia. By and large, their use is safe but occasionally the tackers are the cause of postoperative complications. Small gut perforations have been reported previously. We report here a case of large gut fistula secondary to an(More)
