Jejunal diverticulosis is a rare entity with variable clinical and anatomical presentations. Its reported incidence varies from 0.05% to 6%. Although there is no consensus on the management of asymptomatic jejunal diverticular disease, some complications are potentially life threatening and require early surgical treatment. We report a case of an(More)

Although laparostomy is a useful treatment of abdominal sepsis, its successful management has not been reported previously in pregnant women. CASE(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study is to determine whether systematic postoperative chest X-ray is required after totally implantable venous access port device (TIVAD) placement under fluoroscopic control. METHODS A retrospective chart review of all consecutive patients with fluoroscopy-guided TIVAD insertion from July 10, 2009 to April 16, 2012 was(More)
BACKGROUND The management of patients with complex abdominal wall defect (CAWD) is challenging, and requires appropriate surgical planning, and intensive patient preparation in order to minimize postoperative complications. The aim of this work was to review the management of CAWD using one-stage repair with biologic mesh. METHODS We retrospectively(More)
