Introduction Globalization and human migration are evident in many areas, among them sports. Migration is present in all countries around the world ( Eliasson, 2009 ; Maguire and Pearton, 2000 ). These countries can be the cause of emigration or immigration, or simply a travel destination, but most often, it is all three. Migration is a way for people to search for better living conditions. There is a distinction between internal migration, when people move within a country, and international migration, when people move between countries. If we overlook

Abstract

Renal function impairment during interventional procedures became a real clinical problem. Contrast related nephropathy is the most common cause of renal failure, however, the procedure-related technical troubles may cause unexpected renal dysfunction.Technical failure of EVAR resulting in acute renal dysfunction is presented. The postprocedural occlusion of the right renal artery was treated in chimney technique. Early reintervention allowed the kidney preservation and renal function restoration.

It is impossible to avoid all the complications following treatment of aortic aneurysm, but they can be anticipated and comprehensively treated in collaboration with other specialists.

“internalization model”, in which an individual learnt in different ways to use the rules of the society in which he/she lived. Previous studies of the cultural capital among elite athletes have mostly been limited to the description of the globalization processes and research on the characteristics of soccer players’ migration. For example, Maguire and Falcous (2011) considered migration in sports as involving a global process of “ culture exchange” . Lee (2010) interpreted sports migration as a form of labour migration through which elite soccer players sought attractive

Abstract

Laparoscopic adjustible gastric binding (LAGB) is one of most common surgical methods of treating obesity. Gastric band migration (erosion) is a typical LAGB complication, with a frequency of about 1-4%.

The aim of the study was to present the possibilities of endoscopic diagnosis and treatment of this complication.

Material and methods. The study was carried out in the Department of Gastroenterological, Oncological and General Surgery in Łódź. Between 2008 and 2015, 450 gastric bands were implanted using the laparoscopic technique in 318 (71%) women and 132 (29%) men. In this period 7 cases of band migration were diagnosed – 3 cases in men (2.3%) and 4 cases in women (1.3%), what presents 1.56% of general number of complications. Five out of 7 eroded bands were qualified for endoscopic removal. Four out of 5 qualified eroded bands were removed using the gastric band cutting technique. In one case we used the musculo-mucosal incision technique. In order to diagnose early perforations all patients underwent control passage examinations with oral contrast (gastrografin) 3-6 hours after the procedure.

Results. All 5 out of 5 qualified eroded gastric bands were successfully removed with the endoscopic method, which gives 100% success rate in own material. Two endoscopic methods were used: 1) endoscopic gastric band cutting, 2) endoscopic musculo-mucosal incision.

Conclusions. Endoscopy gives a possibility of instant diagnosis of gastric band migration and early minimally invasive treatment. One of our endoscopic methods of removing the bands by making several incisions of the musculo-mucosal plicae has not yet been described in professional medical literature.

Coil Migration Following Intravascular Embolization of Hepatic Artery Aneurysm as a Cause of Life-Threatening Obstructive Jaundice - Case Report

Authors present a case of a 75-year old woman who developed obstructive jaundice caused by migration of an embolization coil. Following ERCP during which the coil and surrounding biliary deposits were removed, the patient was discharge home. 7 months earlier the patient had undergone an elective cholecystectomy. Immediately after the procedure the patient was diagnosed with hemobilia caused by an aneurysym of the right hepatic artery. Endovascular procedure was performed and 3 embolization coils were implanted into the right hepatic artery.

Abstract

Shunt implantation in utero being a life-saving procedure, may be connected with a wide range of complications. One of them is catheter dislocation, a side effect which may impair the state of the fetus and child. We present a case of a boy with Congenital Adenomatoid Lung Malformation (CALM) type II. Invasive prenatal therapy, complicated by shunt migration did not influence our patient’s health. Moreover, the abnormally located shunt stayed within the child’s chest up to the age of 6 years. No symptoms linked to foreign body presence were observed. Although similar cases were published, we report a situation, in which the catheter was left in the patient’s body for 6 years, for the first time.

Abstract

The first part of this study, explored by Ashley Popp, presents an investigation into a relatively unexamined area of physical education: an analysis of a transcultural phenomenon in the history of dance. Data has been collected from primary sources and archival evidence to assess competing ideologies inherent in the transformation of a particular art form. In the analysis of the cultural migration through which belly dance was transferred from the Middle East to the United States, an adaptive reaction to the hegemonic relationships of culture, race, gender, and class has been observed. Beyond performance aesthetics, links have been made between the act of belly dancing and the building of women’s self-esteem, as researched by Chia-Ju Yen. The main purpose of her study was to explore how facial burn patients cope with disfigurement and the unfriendly attitudes of others, and examines the alteration of body image via inspiration provided by the performance of belly dance. This research was conducted from the perspective of an anthropologically thickdescription research method, and a case study was performed using in-depth interviews, including narratives by a woman who had suffered facial injuries. The results of the research showed that through family support, hard work and a decisive and studious personality, the patient was able to cope with the discriminatory attitude of others. The performance of belly dance not only made her emphasize her body, but also enriched her life.
