ABSTRACT: Spinal cord infarction is a rare complication following thoracic surgery. We present a case who developed paraplegia on the first postoperative day of thoracotomy. A 76-year-old man with a history of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease was operated for bronchial carcinoma. An epidural infusion of ropivacaine and sufentanil was used for postoperative pain. Eight hours after the surgery, he had an episode of hypotension and respiratory depression. One hour later, he described paraplegia and Ischemia of the spinal cord was found on MRI. There was no recovery during the follow-up.Journal of the College of Physicians and Surgeons--Pakistan: JCPSP 01/2006; 15(12):819-20. · 0.34 Impact Factor
Article: [Case report: Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans metastatic to lung without local recurrence].[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans is a rare skin tumor which constitutes 6% of soft tissue sarcomas. Typically, it has a superficial location and a locally aggressive character. Although it has a relatively high recurrence rate, the rate of distant metastasis is about 3%. Furthermore, it rarely metastasizes without local recurrence. Here we present a case with dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans with distant metastasis occurring seven years after the local excision of the primary tumor and without any local recurrence.Tanısal ve girişimsel radyoloji: Tıbbi Görüntüleme ve Girişimsel Radyoloji Derneği yayın organı 07/2003; 9(2):195-8.
