Pseudoaneurysm of the hepatic artery along with common bile duct injury following laparoscopic cholecystectomy. A report of two cases

Surgical Endoscopy

Arterial injuries during laparoscopic cholecystectomy have been described frequently in literature. However, arterial injuries presenting in a delayed fashion as pseudoaneurysms are uncommon and the literature on the subject is also scant. Two patients are described here who developed pseudoaneurysms of the right branch of the hepatic artery following laparoscopic cholecystectomy along with lacerations of the common bile duct. One patient presented 7 days after the initial procedure with a bile fistula and bleeding from the drainage tube. The second presented as obstructive jaundice 4 months after the laparoscopic procedure. Both patients were operated upon after appropriate radiological evaluation. These are unusual complications but need to be kept in mind whenever patients present with bleeding or jaundice after laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
