The purpose of this study was to evaluate factors associated with post-discharge venous thromboembolism (VTE) within 30- days of hip fracture surgery. 96,870 cases with acute hip fractures were identified from a national retrospective database. We only included patients who received intramedullary nail fixation, extramedullary implant fixation, or hemiarthroplasty. ... read more
He presented a complete response(CR). During MMS, frozen sections showed BCC at the area corresponding to the lacrimal sac. We competed the resection of the lacrimal apparatus (bone and soft tissues) under general anesthesia. Final margins were clear. The patient is currently without evidence of disease 10 months after MMS. ... read more

However, cutaneous aspergillosis can occur in both immune competent and immune compromised individuals due to trauma, surgery, or burn injury, or by direct inoculation of the fungus at the injury site. Skin involvement may result from direct inoculation of the fungus as well as from microemboli in disseminated aspergillosis. ... read more

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most frequent primary liver tumor, 90% of these setting in a cirrhotic liver. The aim of this study was to analyze the results of resected HCC in cirrhotic and non-cirrhotic patients in a 12 year period. Postoperative outcomes, overall survival (OS) and recurrence-free survival (RFS) were analyzed, as well factors involved. ... read more

We report the rare and unusual case of giant retroperitoneal lipoma in association with multiple limb and trunk lipoma. ... read more
