  • Firework-Related Chorioretinitis Sclopetaria: A Case Report and Literature
           Review

    • Authors: Greta Kazlauskaitė, Aušrinė Misevičė
      Pages: 161 - 166
      Abstract: Chorioretinitis sclopetaria is a rare consequence of ocular injury caused by the forces of a high-velocity object passing very close to the globe. Injury results in a full-thickness rupture of the retina and choroid, while the sclera remains unaffected. The location of rupture affects visual recovery and final best-corrected visual acuity. Retinal detachment or non-resorbable vitreous hemorrhage may require surgical treatment, but in most cases the initial treatment is observation. Therefore, a timely and correct diagnosis of traumatic chorioretinitis is essential to avoid unwarranted surgical intervention. Although most patients have a final corrected visual acuity improvement after trauma, the visual prognosis is poor. Herein we report the case of a patient diagnosed with chorioretinitis sclopetaria after sustaining trauma by a firework. We also discuss the prevalence of chorioretinitis sclopetaria, risk factors, the pathophysiological mechanism, the main clinical findings, treatment options, and outcomes.
      Keywords: Clinical Practice ; Heterotopic Ossification in the Abdomen of an Elderly Patient, as an
             Incidental Finding During Elective Surgery: A Case Report

      • Authors: Gordana Bozhinovska-Beaka, Biljana Prgova Veljanova, Tatjan Troik, Ivica Stojanovski, Patricija Kalamaras, Nadica Bozhinovska-Dimova
        Pages: 167 - 172
        Abstract: Introduction. Heterotopic ossification (HO) is a rare diverse pathologic process, with broad spectrum. Case report. This is a case report of a 73 years old patient who had ventral hernia at the medial line on the anterior abdominal wall, and underwent a routine surgery. During the surgery an incidental finding of HO was discovered. Discussion. HO is well documented to occur at increased frequency with certain predisposing conditions, including orthopedic surgery, most commonly hip arthroplasty. Non-genetic HO can occur nearly anywhere in the body, but is often designated by the tissue type it involves, such as myositis ossificans when involving skeletal muscle, or fasciitis ossificans when involving fascia.

          Abstract: Pulmonary vein stenosis is a potential complication after radiofrequency ablation for atrial fibrillation. We present an unusual case of this complication that progressed to vein occlusion and required lobectomy and review the literature. A 54-year-old man presented with persistent chest pain, dry cough, and hemoptysis. Seven months before he underwent radiofrequency catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation. Chest computed tomography showed a narrowing of the left lower pulmonary vein after the procedure. The patient was treated conservatively. On the presentation, a chest computed tomography scan showed total pulmonary vein occlusion. A quantitative ventilation/perfusion scan revealed no perfusion to the left lower lobe. A balloon angioplasty was performed, however unsuccessfully. The left lower lobectomy was performed. Six years after the lobectomy the patient has neither cardiac nor pulmonary symptoms. Pulmonary vein occlusion after radiofrequency ablation for atrial fibrillation leading to lung resection is still a possible severe complication.
          Keywords: Clinical Practice ; Hepatic Angiomyolipoma: A Case Report and Review of the Literature

            Pages: 179 - 184
            Abstract: Background. Hepatic angiomyolipomas are uncommon non-cancerous mesenchymal tumors that belong to the perivascular epithelioid cell tumour group. Smooth muscle cells, fat cells and blood vessels can be observed in these types of neoplasm. Case presentation. We present the case of a 50-year-old patient. The patient was referred to the National Cancer Institute after an abdominal ultrasound, which incidentally revealed a mass in the liver. A whole body computed tomography scan showed a large liver mass, in the VII/VIII/V/VI segments. Trisegmenthomy of the right liver lobe was performed. Pathological examination revealed a rare, but benign tumour – angiomyolipoma. The postoperative course was uneventful and the patient was discharged on postoperative day 9. Two months following the surgery, the patient has no recurrence or late complications. Conclusion. Hepatic angiomyolipoma is a rare, usually benign tumour with malignant potential. It is can be diagnosed by radiological tests, biopsy or after surgery. The most common treatment is surgical resection.

                     arthroplasty' Retrospective observational study

              • Authors: Dovydas Rapolis, Matas Urmanavičius, Aleksas Makulavičius, Valentinas Uvarovas
                Pages: 206 - 212
                Abstract: Introduction. Hallux Rigidus, a degenerative disease of the first metatarsophalangeal joint (MTP), causes pain during movement, reduces joint mobility, and impairs quality of life. Conservative treatment methods are effective only in the early stages of the disease, and surgical treatment is usually recommended for advanced pathology. Arthrodesis procedure is the gold standard. This surgery effectively and relatively quickly reduces painful symptoms but sacrifices joint mobility. An alternative is resection arthroplasty. There is no consensus in the literature regarding the long-term outcomes of these two treatment methods. The aim of this study is to determine which method is superior in improving patients’ quality of life and foot function. Methods. A retrospective observational study was conducted on 41 patients who were followed up for 2–4 years after surgery. Of these, 20 underwent resection arthroplasty, 21 – arthrodesis. Patients’ quality of life and subjective foot function were assessed using two standardized questionnaires: SEFAS and Short Form-12. Additional questions on patient satisfaction with the surgery were also evaluated. Results. Patient satisfaction with the surgery was high in both groups (80%). There were no statistically significant differences in patients’ ankle and foot function assessed by SEFAS scale and psychological quality of life assessed by SF 12 (Mental Score): p = 0.14 and p = 0.729, respectively. Patients rated their physical quality of life significantly better, assessed by SF 12 (Physical Score), after undergoing arthroplasty (p = 0.02), and f...
                Keywords: Original research work ; Radiological and Clinical Prognostic Factors of Recurrence of Subacute and
                       Chronic Subdural Hematomas

                • Authors: Milda Paliulytė, Gytis Šustickas
                  Pages: 213 - 219
                  Abstract: Objectives. To assess characteristic data of patients hospitalized due to subacute subdural hematomas (SSDHs) and chronic subdural hematomas (CSDHs) and to evaluate radiological findings and establish predictors of hematoma recurrence of SSDHs and CSDHs patient populations. Methods. 149 patients with SSDHs and CSDHs who underwent surgery at Kaunas Clinics Neurosurgery Department from 2020 to 2021 were analyzed. Based on recurrence rate, patients were divided into different subtypes based on computer tomography (CT) imaging. Descriptive analysis, hypothesis testing and correlation matrix were performed using Excel spreadsheet and R programming language with the significance at p-value < 0.05. Results. Out of 149 patients, SSDHs and CSDHs were observed in 89 males (59.6%) and 60 (40.3%) females. Mean of the patients age was 71.1±15 years. Dichotomizing results based on recurrence (cut-off value of 25%), 2 groups were made: 1) low reoperation rate –hypodense sedimented (10%), isodense (21.6%), hypodense (22.2%); 2) high reoperation rate – hypodense bridging (26.7%), hypodense trabecular (27.8%), hypodense with acute bleeding (28.6%), hypodense laminar (30%), isodense with acute bleeding (33.3%). Conclusion. It is concluded that based on 25% reoperation rate high-recurrence and low-recurrence chronic subdural hematomas groups were similar in all terms apart from the hematoma thickness (mm), which leads to a fact that radiological appearance of higher recurrence hematomas should be carefully taken into consideration.
                  Keywords: Original research work ; Comparison of the Methods for Diagnosing the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

                  • Authors: Aurimas Dobilinskas, Saulius Knystautas, Kęstutis Braziulis, Irmantas Rutkauskas, Loreta Pilipaitytė

                    Abstract: Background. Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common and widespread peripheral neuropathy in the world. The diagnostic testing methods for the carpal tunnel syndrome are based on anamnesis data, objective and instrumental inspection. Electroneuromyography is the main instrumental test when carpal tunnel syndrome is suspected. An ultrasound imaging may also be performed. Objective. To determine the effectiveness, sensitivity and specificity of instrumental diagnostics methods used to diagnose the carpal tunnel syndrome, and to compare them. Methods. Diagnostic testing – ultrasound and electroneuromyography was applied to persons under study. The area of the median nerve (mm2) was assessed during the ultrasound examination. The results of the electroneuromyography study evaluated the response speed of the sensory impulse (ms), the speed of the motor impulse response (ms). Later, the tests, their sensitivity and specificity were evaluated and compared. Results. 30 patients participated in the study, of which 26 (86.7%) were women, 4 (13.3%) were men. Electroneuromyography was found to be both sensitive and specific for a measure of sensory propagation velocity, 76.2 and 75%, respectively (p = 0.042); of motor propagation speed – 100 and 75% (p = 0.040). Ultrasonography is sensitive (87.5%) but nonspecific (66.7%) (p = 0.008). The study showed that the ultrasound dimension strongly, directly and reliably correlates with the sensory impulse response rate (p < 0.001), and the ultrasound dimension moderately, directly and reliably correlates with the motor impulse response rate (p < 0.001). Conclusions. Carpal tunnel syndrome can be suspected by ultrasound measurement of the area of the median nerve, but the test is only sensitive but non-specific. Electroneuromyography can confirm the diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome, as the test is both sensitive and specific. Comparing the studies, a strong, direct and reliable relationship between the results of the ultrasound and the electroneuromyography testing was established.

                      Abstract: Stress urinary incontinence is a complication after radical prostatectomy. The suburethral sling implantation operation is often performed for mild to moderate male urinary incontinence after radical prostatectomy. There are non-adjustable suburethral slings that are effective up to 73.7% and adjustable slings that are effective up to 92%. We present a case report of a 62-year-old man who underwent radical prostatectomy due to prostate cancer in 2018 and experienced moderate degree urinary incontinence. After non-effective conservative treatment in 2020-02-27, the suburethral transobturator sling implantation was performed in another hospital, but it did not yield effective results. After further examinations in 2023-03-25, an adjustable ATOMS system suburethral male sling implantation was performed and it was effective. 2023-05-03 ATOMS system was adjusted and after this there was no urinary incontinence. ATOMS system is an effective surgical method for the treatment of male recurrent urinary incontinence or for cases where the initial sling implantation has failed.

                        Abstract: Liver biopsy is the most accurate interventional procedure to diagnose hepatic diseases. According to the information provided by the Institute of Hygiene, 968 percutaneous liver biopsies were performed in Lithuania in 2022. The Lithuanian scientific literature does not, however, publish information on complications associated with this procedure. According to international literature, the frequency of complications after this procedure ranges from 2.4% to 9.5%. The most common are mild complications: hematomas, fever, pain at the biopsy site. Particularly rare are hemothorax, pneumothorax, damage to the organs of the thoracic and abdominal cavity, which occur in up to 0.04% of cases. This article presents an extremely rare complication – liver biopsy induced hemothorax, whose success was determined by early diagnosis and timely surgical intervention.
