Postoperative Dehiscence


Presentation

  • Each full-color case begins with a patient presentation and proceeds through differential diagnosis, diagnosis and treatment, surgical procedures, postoperative management, and a case conclusion.[books.google.com]
  • The aim of the present study was to assess the safety of the use of non-absorbable and absorbable meshes for this purpose.[link.springer.com]
  • This differential diagnosis should be remembered, particularly when the classic signs of inflammation are not present and brain CT shows hypodense round and regular lesions on imaging. Financial support and sponsorship Nil.[surgicalneurologyint.com]

  • The patient will complain of abdominal pain and be unable to pass flatus, they may also have nausea and vomiting as well as a distended abdomen. They are caused when the intestinal peristalsis slows down or stops so the bowel contents are stagnant.[ausmed.com]
Hearing Impairment
  • Both SSC plugging and resurfacing surgeries have demonstrated at least partial improvement in incapacitating SSCD symptoms, 1, 4, 9 although plugging has also been shown to reduce vestibular function in the repaired canal. 21 Hearing impairment related[ingentaconnect.com]

  • Physiologic and Audiology Testing Patients with SCD may experience vertigo induced by loud noise (Tullio syndrome), pressure applied to the external auditory canal (Hennebert sign), or the Valsalva maneuver.[ingentaconnect.com]
Hyperacusis
  • Auditory manifestations of SSCD may include diminished conductive hearing within the affected ear, autophony (accentuated perception of one's own heartbeat, breathing, or other self-generated noise), and hyperacusis of bone conducted sounds. 7 Vestibular[ingentaconnect.com]
Nystagmus
  • […] self-generated noise), and hyperacusis of bone conducted sounds. 7 Vestibular symptoms are more common than audiology manifestations in both SSCD 7 and posterior semicircular canal dehiscence (PSCD). 8 Objective signs for SCD include vertical and/or torsional nystagmus[ingentaconnect.com]
