Aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR), or dioxin receptor, is a transcription factor that induces adaptive metabolic pathways in response to environmental pollutants. Recently, other pathways were found to be altered by AhR and its ligands. Indeed, developmental defects elicited by AhR ligands suggest that additional cellular functions may be targeted by this(More)
To evaluate the efficacy and safety of superselective embolization of the uterine arteries in a postpartum hemorrhage. Between November 2004 and January 2011, a total of 44 consecutive women (median ± standard deviation age 34 ± 3 years, range 23–41 years) were referred to our institution for postpartum intractable hemorrhage management. All patients were(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the sensitivity of sentinel node (SN) ultrastaging and to define parameters that may reduce the overall false-negative rate in women with early-stage cervical cancer. METHODS We analyzed data from a large retrospective multicenter cohort group with FIGO stages IA-IIB cervical cancer in whom at least one SN was identified and(More)
INTRODUCTION Symptomatic postoperative lymphocysts (SPOLs) and lower-limb lymphedema (LLL) are probably underestimated complications of lymphadenectomy for gynecologic malignancies. Here, our objective was to evaluate the incidence and risk factors of SPOLs and LLL after pelvic and/or aortocaval lymphadenectomy for gynecologic malignancies. METHODS(More)
The purpose of this prospective multicenter study was to assess one-step nucleic acid amplification (OSNA) for intraoperative sentinel lymph node (SLN) metastasis detection in breast cancer patients, using final histology as the reference standard. OSNA results were also compared to intraoperative histology SLN evaluation and to standard clinicopathological(More)
Caput succedaneum often occurs at birth, especially in vaginal delivery. It is a cranial subcutaneous serohematic extravasation, with a good prognosis, and spontaneous regression is the rule within a few days. In the literature, it has been mainly described in the neonatal period. We report a case of caput succedaneum detected in utero by ultrasound after(More)
Vaginal cysts are common lesions that include Gartner cysts, which develop from the wolffian duct remnants in the vaginal wall. Malignant transformation of Gartner cysts is exceedingly rare. Our case was diagnosed upon evaluation of vaginal bleeding in a 67-year-old woman. Histologic examination showed a clear cell carcinoma. Treatment consisted of surgical(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the correlation between the nature of the ovarian tumors presumed according to the ultrasound criteria of Timmerman and the final histological diagnosis. PATIENTS AND METHODS We made a prospective study during a period of 4 years, concerning consecutive patients having an ovarian tumor, investigated by pelvic ultrasonography using(More)
The objective of this study was to report the value of diagnostic hysteroscopy and endometrial biopsy for the detection of complex atypical hyperplasia or cancer in asymptomatic human non-polyposis colon cancer (HNPCC) patients. The secondary objective was to evaluate the accuracy of hysteroscopy, using endometrial biopsy as a gold standard. Consecutive(More)
