An Unspoken Threat Hiding behind the Gall Bladder in Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy - The Middle Hepatic Vein

Kaundinya Kiran Bharatam

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: August 10, 2018

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is guided by working knowledge of bilio-vascular anomalies to prevent common bile duct injuries and bleeding during surgery. Less importance is given to the dissection of the gall bladder from the gall bladder bed where the middle hepatic vein or its large branch can be encountered. The lack of awareness of this presence can result in uncontrolled bleeding and result in significant morbidity or mortality in a seemingly uneventful procedure....

A middle-aged male presented with a pulsatile mass on his forehead that had been growing slowly. He reports being accidentally cut by his barber in that location 2-3 months prior.

-2proPSA and Prostate Health Index Usefulness for the Diagnosis of Prostate Cancer for PSA Range between 3 and 10 ng/ml

J Juan Escudero, A Duran-Rivera, E Escudero, A Montoro, M Fabuel del Toro, M Ramos de Campos and E Lopez Alcina

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: Augsut 08, 2018

The prostate specific antigen (PSA) is a kallikrein protein family member and since the 1990s has been used as a biochemical marker for the early diagnosis of PCa. Since the introduction of PSA, we have witnessed the migration of this tumor to initial stages diagnosis, with a subsequent decrease in mortality. Even though PSA use is constantly challenged due to its low specificity, especially in what is known as the PSA grey area (between 4-10 ng/dL range), PSA is still the most utilized tumor marker for PCa....

Streptococcus salivarius (S. salivarius) is a rare cause of purulent meningitis. We report a case of meningitis due to S. salivarius in 15-years-old Sudanese boy. Diagnosis was established based on Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) findings. The patient responded well to systemic antibiotics and recovered completely without any neurological complications after proper supportive measures.
