A giant colonic diverticulum (GCD) is a rare disease with less than 200 cases reported in the literature. By definition, a GCD is larger than 4cm in diameter with close sigmoid colon relationship in m...
Chordomas are rare, locally aggressive neoplasms that develop from remnants of the notochord. The typical approach to chordomas of the clivus and axial cervical spine often limits successful en bloc r...
Distal pancreatectomy with en-bloc celiac axis resection (DP-CAR) through retroperitoneal-first laparoscopic approach (Retlap): A novel strategy for achieving accurate evaluation of resectability and minimal invasiveness.
Distal pancreatectomy with en-bloc celiac axis resection (DP-CAR) for borderline resectable pancreatic body cancer is increasingly being performed [1,2]. For survival benefits, obtaining margin-free r...
Giant left atrium (GLA) is a rare entity in pediatric population. GLA carries a significant mortality risks and once existence is established, it needs to be evaluated with intention to treat. We repo...
Traditionally, when a patient presents with a midline chordoma with extension to the mid-S1 body where neither S1 nerve roots can be spared, the recommendation would be to perform a total sacrectomy f...
This will be a prospective single-blinded, randomized, controlled trial comparing the effectiveness and safety of transseptal puncture using the Baylis transseptal system to transseptal le...
Conventionally, transurethral standard resection (SR) of bladder tumour is performed in a piecemeal manner. Transurethral en bloc resection (EBR) has been described as an alternate surgica...
Determine clinical and pathological factors associated with perioperative morbidity and mortality, and oncological outcomes after multivisceral en bloc resection in patients with colorecta...
The main goal of this study is to clarify if laparoscopy (LPS) could become the standard approach in patients undergoing left colonic resection. 268 patient candidates to left colonic res...
Currently, colonoscopy is the safest way to detect bowel tumors and polyps, since these can be biopsied and removed in one working process. If the size of adenomas is larger than 2 cm, res...
Multinucleated cells (fused macrophages) seen in granulomatous inflammations such as tuberculosis, syphilis, sarcoidosis, and deep fungal infections. They resemble foreign-body giant cells (GIANT CELLS, FOREIGN BODY) but Langhans giant cells contain less chromatin and their nuclei are arranged peripherally in a horseshoe-shaped pattern. Langhans giant cells occur frequently in delayed hypersensitivity.
The artery supplying nearly all the left half of the transverse colon, the whole of the descending colon, the sigmoid colon, and the greater part of the rectum. It is smaller than the superior mesenteric artery (MESENTERIC ARTERY, SUPERIOR) and arises from the aorta above its bifurcation into the common iliac arteries.
Multinucleated cells (fused macrophages), characteristic of granulomatous inflammation, which form around exogenous material in the skin. They are similar in appearance to Langhans giant cells (GIANT CELLS, LANGHANS), but foreign-body giant cells have more abundant chromatin and their nuclei are scattered in an irregular pattern in the cytoplasm.
A non-neoplastic inflammatory lesion, usually of the jaw or gingiva, containing large, multinucleated cells. It includes reparative giant cell granuloma. Peripheral giant cell granuloma refers to the gingiva (giant cell epulis); central refers to the jaw.
Tumors of bone tissue or synovial or other soft tissue characterized by the presence of giant cells. The most common are giant cell tumor of tendon sheath and GIANT CELL TUMOR OF BONE.
