    Title Spontaneous Splenic Rupture Caused by Babesia Microti Infection.
    Date July 2008
    Journal Clinical Infectious Diseases : an Official Publication of the Infectious Diseases Society of America
    Excerpt

    Babesiosis has not been previously associated with spontaneous splenic rupture. We describe an otherwise healthy 61-year-old man with symptomatic babesiosis whose spleen ruptured during hospitalization. Although this complication is rare, practitioners who commonly treat patients with babesiosis should be aware of its potential occurrence.

    Title Transverse Testicular Ectopia in a Fertile Elderly Male Presenting with Incarcerated Inguinoscrotal Hernia.
    Date
    Journal Hernia : the Journal of Hernias and Abdominal Wall Surgery
    Excerpt

    Transverse testicular ectopia is a rare congenital anomaly characterized by the unilateral descent of both testes into one hemiscrotum. Fewer than 100 occurrences of this condition have been reported worldwide, almost all of them in children. In this report, we describe transverse testicular ectopia (TTE) identified in a 55-year-old, apparently fertile, male who presented to a rural hospital in Belladere, Haiti, for elective repair of an incarcerated left inguinoscrotal hernia. Preoperative palpation of the scrotum had revealed apparently normal, well-developed left and right testicles. However, during open herniorrhaphy, both testicles were found to have descended on the left side and reside in an enlarged left hemiscrotum. Surgeons who frequently repair inguinal hernias should be aware of this rare clinical entity and its recognized association with inguinal hernia; they should also be aware of the appropriate surgical management options available to them when this condition is unexpectedly identified during inguinal exploration.

    Title Case Report: Treatment of Severe Subcutaneous Emphysema with a Negative Pressure Wound Therapy Dressing.
    Date
    Journal Eplasty
    Excerpt

    This article describes a patient who developed severe subcutaneous emphysema and a persistent air leak after several attempts at needle thoracostomy for what was thought to be a tension pneumothorax. Subcutaneous emphysema was effectively treated with a topical negative pressure wound therapy dressing applied to a typical subfacial "blowhole" incision. This article aims to describe and contextualize the use of negative pressure wound therapy within the existing treatment options for subcutaneous emphysema.
