Feasibility and Advantages of a Modified Subxiphoidal Video-Assisted Thoracoscopy Procedure Compared to Established Traditional Video-Assisted Thoracoscopy Procedures in Intercostal Access

Mohammed Ibrahim, MD, Bernd Linsmeier, MD and Matthias Steinert, MD

Article Type: Research Ar ticle | First Published: March 28, 2021

Minimally invasive thoracic surgical techniques are under continual development, especially the subxiphoidal approach, which until recently could only be done in a few centers across the world, due mainly to the many challenges associated with this method. There are ongoing discussions around minimally invasive methods including the instrument sizes and types, the incision position and expected outcomes. Robotic surgery using the subxiphoidal approach is still under discussion and is expected to...

An Effective Use of Methylene Blue Dye for Guiding Resection of Nasal Dermoid Sinus Cyst

Shilpi Karmakar, Arun Kumar Singh and Saurabh Karmakar

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: March 10, 2021

Nasal dermoid sinus cyst (NDSC) is a rare congenital lesion, typically presenting at birth or in early infancy. Treatment of NDSC includes complete resection of the mass and the sinus tract, which may extend intracranially. Incomplete resection of the track is associated with high recurrence. We were looking for methods to delineate the NDSC track, without increasing the financial burden to the patient. The patient was a 12-year-old female who came with a recent onset nasal swelling, which devel...

Extraordinary Pattern with Brain Metastasis of Ovarian Cancer with Five Cases: Survival Impact of Cranial Metastesectomy. Do or Not To Do?

Emre Bilgin, MD and Berna Bozkurt Duman

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: February 12, 2021

Ovarian malignancies primarily disseminate through the peritoneal cavity and are only superficially invasive. They rarely metastasise through the haematogenous route, but that occurs in the presence of heavy peritoneal disease. Colon and brain metastasis are rare entity and both of them in one patient is in our first case with slightly elevated Ca125 level. Four cases had single and the other had multiple cranial metastasis with no evidence of the disease in the other part of the body. The brain...

Thuraya Al Yazidi, Suad Al Aghbari, Badryia Al Qassabi and Marwa Al Riyami

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: January 30, 2021

Fibromatosis or desmoid tumor is a benign tumor that rarely affects the breast. It represents 0.2% of all breast tumors and 4% of all extra-abdominal desmoid tumors. Wide local excision with adequate safety margins is considered the standard of care. We report three cases of breast fibromatosis who were presented to and operated in the sultan Qaboos University. All of these cases underwent wide local excision. After close regular follow up now for six months no local recurrence was reported. Fib...

Unusual Sites of Metastasis of Well-Differentiated Thyroid Cancer: A Systematic Review

Awadh Alqahtani

Article Type: Systematic Review | First Published: January 30, 2021

Thyroid cancer is one of the most common endocrine malignancies secondary to ovarian cancer. Its incidence has surged swiftly than that of any other malignancy in recent years. Well-differentiated thyroid cancers (WDTC) are relatively common and usually slow-growing tumors with a good prognosis, including three types: Papillary, follicular, and Hürthle cell carcinoma. The first metastatic sites of these types of cancer typically involve lymph nodes, lungs, brain, and bones. The PICOT included a...
