Case Report: Partial Transection and Healing of the Right Main Bronchus: an Unreported Complication of Chest Tube Insertion
Tarig E. Fadelelmoula1*, Momen M. Abdalla2 and Husameldin S. Hussein2
Chest tube is the most commonly performed surgical procedure in chest surgery. The lung is the most commonly injured organ during chest tube placement. Published complications in adult patients included lacerations of the lung, intercostal artery, esophagus, stomach, liver, spleen, diaphragm, pulmonary artery and atrium as well as right ventricular compression, but to our knowledge this is first case reported with Partial transection and healing of the main bronchus following chest tube insertion. We report a 35 years old male referred to our hospital with chest pain and worsening shortness of breath and history of chest pain and mild haemoptysis immediately following chest tube insertion. We conclude that lung damage during chest tube insertion is common, but can be avoided by using blunt dissection technique without the use of a trocar; trainee should be supervised while performing such a common procedure and that post tube thoracotomy care may foster early detection and halts advancement of those complications.

Gestation outside the uterine cavity in which the implantation occurs in any tissue other than the endometrium is referred as ectopic pregnancy. The most place for occurring ectopic pregnancy (97% of cases) is the fallopian tubes including ampulla (55%), isthmus (25%), and fimbria (17%), and in 3% of patients ectopic pregnancy occurs in the abdominal cavity, ovary, or cervix. The tubal twin ectopic pregnancy is a rare condition, and the first unilateral tubal twin was reported by De Ott in 1891, and the first live twin tubal ectopic pregnancy was reported in 1944. A live tubal twin ectopic pregnancy is a very rare condition and among >100 reports of tubal twin pregnancies, till now, only 8 cases were live. Early diagnosis and treatment of women with tubal twin ectopic pregnancy is very important and may decrease the risk of tubal rupture. I present three cases of tubal twin ectopic gestation. In the first case, spontaneous unilateral live tubal twin ectopic gestation. The second and third cases spontaneous ruptured twin ectopic gestation. All three cases were successfully managed and there was no history of assisted reproductive technique fertilization or pelvic inflammatory disease.

Case Report: Minimal Invasive Concept for the Rehabilitation of Edentulous Jaw with One-piece Implants
Jimoh Olubanwo Agbaje1 and Henri Diederich2*
Background: One-piece implants encourage the use of minimally invasive surgical techniques in restoring edentulous spaces with minimal postoperative discomfort and excellent implant survival rate.
Case report: The compressive one piece implant can be used for multiple unit restorations with immediate loading in the upper and lower jaws. It can also be used in combination with a conventional implant and it can be placed flapless.
Conclusion: The presented case reports show the functional restoration of an edentulous patient with minimal invasive surgical technique with one piece implant in elderly patients.

Endodontic treatment is a routinely carried out dental procedure for the management of pulpal and periapical diseases. Complications and mishaps may occur during endodontic treatment and they can be access related, instrumentation related, or obturation related. The purpose of this article is to report a rare and unusual case of burn injury during endodontic treatment in dental practice. The case report describes the effects of inappropriate handling of ethanol in a clinical practice. The use of ethanol requires special precaution and where possible, especially in dental practice, the use of alternative safe technology should be adopted.

Breast carcinoma has been considered a female dominated disease, whereas male breast carcinoma is relatively rare accounting for less than 1% of all breast cancers. Cancer of the breast among men is rare, accounting for less than one percent of cancer incidence and mortality in this sex group. We present the case of a 17-year-old boy with infiltrating ductal breast carcinoma.
