Service de chirurgie digestive, CHU de la Côte de Nacre, avenue de la Côte de Nacre, 14033 Caen cedex, France.

Introduction: Pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) is the only curative treatment for adenocarcinoma of the pancreatic head but is associated with a significant early morbidity and a poor long term survival. Therefore, its value is still debated. The aim of this study was to evaluate early and distant results of PD for pancreatic adenocarcinoma, and to identify prognostic factors. Read More

Vascular complications of lumbar disc surgery are rare (about 0,04% of discectomies) but very severe. Great variations of the anatomical lesions and of their clinical aspects may be observed. These lesions are often unrecognised during the operation and they are sometimes identified several years after the injury. Read More

[Subperitoneal inguinal hernioplasty by anterior approach, using a memory-ring patch. Preliminary results].

Ann Chir 2006 Dec 27;131(10):590-4. Epub 2006 Jun 27.

Capio Clinique Saint-Vincent, 40, chemin des Tilleroyes, 25000 Besançon, France.

Objective: Incidence of chronic pain is lower following laparoscopic hernioplasty than open surgery, probably due to the location of the patch in the preperitoneal space. But since laparoscopy is more demanding, the rates of complications and recurrences are higher. The aim of this study was to evaluate the results of a procedure consisting of placement of a patch, endowed with some memory of shape, provided by a thin peripheral memory ring, in the preperitoneal space, by inguinal incision, through the hernia orifice, under spinal or local anesthesia.

[Malignant hereditary paraganglioma: problems raised by non-functional forms management].

Ann Chir 2006 Dec 19;131(10):626-30. Epub 2006 Jun 19.

Service de Chirurgie Viscérale et Vasculaire, Hôpital d'Instruction des Armées du Val-de-Grâce, 74, boulevard de Port-Royal, 75230 Paris cedex 05, France.

Non-functional paraganglioma have not clinical or biological characteristics, so that the diagnostic is most of the time delayed and made on the occasion of advanced abdominal tumor or symptomatic metastasis management. Hereditary forms, notably those with SDHB mutation, seem to have a poor prognosis. On the other hand, and on the oposite to sporadic forms, they are the only ones to benefit from genetic testing which make possible, if positive, an earlier diagnostic, before apparition of symptoms, recurrence or metastasis.

Authors report a case of a 77 years old man who developed a small bowel mesenteric hematoma as consequence of an unusual complication from a long term oral anticoagulation treatment. Computed tomoangiography helpfully suggests diagnosis of a mesenteric hematoma and refuts an organic cause as vascular anomalies, by an equivalent method to conventional angiography, noninvasely. In our case report, patient's deterioration justified an emergency surgery corroborating medical imager findings. Read More
