PRESERVATION TECHNIQUE FOR EXTERNAL LARYNGEAL NERVE IN THYROID SURGERYNassief J Mohammed#, Adnan Y Abdul-Wahab@, Akram A Hassan&# FICMS, CABS General Surgeon, Basrah Teaching Hospital.. @ FRCS Assist.Prof. Surgery, Dept. Of Surgery, Basrah College of Medicine, & CABS, General Surgeon, Basrah General Hospital.Abstract A prospective comparative study conducted at Basrah Teaching Hospital in Basrah between December 2000 and February 2002. Eighty patients included, they were 13 (16.2%) male and 67(83.7%) female patients, most of the patients aged between 20-50 year (81%). The patients were allocated in two groups, each comprises 40 patients. The external laryngeal nerve (E.L.N) is a motor nerve to cricothyroid muscle of the larynx which concerned with high pitch voice. The incidence of injury to this nerve during thyroid surgery is between 11-25% in the literature. This study aimed to compare the incidence of ELN injury in thyroid surgery between the ordinary approach and the nerve stimulator approach in two groups, and to evaluate the efficacy of nerve preservation technique using nerve stimulator. In the first group, thyroid surgery was done with the aid of nerve stimulator, while in the second group the surgery was done in classical way; we found that the incidence of ELN injury in rthe first group was zero while in the second group was 12.5% (5/40). We Also found increase risk of injury to ELN in thyrotoxic patient and it was about 30.7% (4/13). We concluded that nerve stimulation is an effective method for preservation of ELN in thyroid surgery and we recommend its use in every thyroidectomy specially in cases having thyrotoxicosis, thyroiditis, huge go

Abstract

MANAGEMENT OF SPLENIC ABSCESSMa’moon A Khalid#, Adnan Y Abdul-Wahab@, Kusai Z Mohammad&# Candidate of FICMS, Al-Sader Teaching Hospital.. @ FRCS Assist.Prof. of Surgery, Dept. Of Surgery, Basrah College of Medicine.&CABS, General Surgeon, Al-Sader Teaching Hospital.AbstractSplenic abscess is a rare clinical entity with an incidence of 0.2 to 0.7% in autopsy based studies. untreated splenic abscess is associated with nearly 100% mortality. This study aimed to clarify the risk factors and management of splenic abscess. This is a retrospective and prospective study of patients with splenic abscess treated at Al-Sader Teaching Hospital over a six-year period. Ten patients were managed. they were six males and four females aged range 11 to 31 years, duration of symptoms ranged from 2 to 30 days. the main symptoms were fever, chills, left hypochondrial pain, anorexia and weight loss and the main physical signs were; Left upper abdominal tenderness, splenomegaly, hepatomegaly and distension. Six patients were treated by antibiotics and splenectomy. Three patients were treated by antibiotics and open drainage of the abscess and one patient was treated conservatively by antibiotics. It is concluded that prompt diagnosis and treatment based on high index of suspicion will reduce the high morbidity associated with this rare disease. it is hoped that as appropriate skills and imaging techniques become more available in our country more splenic abscess could be managed by percutanous drainage specially when there is a solitary abscess cavity.
