A large tubal ectopic pregnancy was noted affecting approximately the distal half of the fallopian tube. Following this a Heaney clamp was placed in the mesosalpinx and another curved Heaney clamp was placed in the proximal aspect of the left fallopian tube beyond the area of the ectopic pregnancy. A partial salpingectomy was the performed removing the portion of the left fallopian tube containing the ectopic pregnancy. Heaney clamps were them replaces with suture No. 1 Vicryl.
The pancreas is an organ located behind the stomach that produces chemicals called enzymes, as well as the hormones insulin and glucagon. These enzymes are usually only active after they reach the small intestine, where they are needed to digest food. When they somehow become active inside the pancreas, they digest pancreatic tissue causing swelling, bleeding and damage to blood vessels. Acute pancreatitis affects men more often than women. Certain diseases, surgeries, and habits make one more likely to develop this condition.

Endocarditis and End stage renal disease NUR240 Endocarditis is an infection of the endocardium, which is the innermost layer of the heart, the heart valves or cardiac prosthesis. The endocarditis occurs as a result from bacterial or virus invasion. The collection of microorganisms, fibrin, and platelets forms vegetation that covers the valve surfaces and spread to the chordae tendineae, the endothelial lining of heart chamber or the endothelium of the greater vessels leading to and from heart, hence causing the heart failure. Pieces of vegetative growth may break off and form emboli that travel to spleen, lungs, kidneys or central nervous system. The predisposing factors for endocarditis include, aging for older people who have aortic stenosis; intravenous drug abuse, presence of prosthetic heart valve, use of intravascular devices which may result in nosocomial like, methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA); and renal dialysis (Lewis et al, 2011, 841-842).
