Visceral artery aneurysms (VAA) can be treated by revascularization, ligation, or, most often, endovascular techniques depending on clinical presentation, hemodynamic status, and location. From 1975 to 2002 a total of 42 VAA in 34 patients were treated. The lesion involved the splenic artery (SA; 19), pancreaticoduodenal artery (PDA; 6), celiac trunk (CT;(More)
Lung carcinoma with a basaloid pattern (BC) is classified as either a basaloid variant of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) or as variant of large cell carcinoma (LCC) depending on the presence of a squamous component. In a previous study of 37 cases, the present authors showed that BC presented with a shorter median and overall survival. In order to confirm(More)
We report a type B aortic dissection treated with stenting of the descending thoracic aorta that subsequently developed an ischemic necrosis of the esophagus with a posterior mediastinum abscess. The surgical treatment consisted of an extra-anatomic bypass to revascularize the supra-aortic trunks and the distal abdominal aorta through a middle sternal(More)
We describe 6 cases of severe filamentous fungal infections after widespread tissue damage due to traumatic injury in previously healthy people. Additionally, we report 69 cases from an exhaustive 20-y review of the literature to investigate the epidemiological and clinical features, the prognosis and the therapeutic management of these post-traumatic(More)
Patients with nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC) have been shown to have a higher prevalence of comorbidity associated with age and tobacco consumption. The objective of the present study was to determine the impact of comorbidity on survival after surgery of stage I NSCLC. In total, 588 consecutive patients operated on for a pathological stage I NSCLC(More)
A 64-year-old man underwent a left pneumonectomy for a benign bronchial stenosis in 1968. In 1997, a left parietal thoracic tumour: T-type malignant non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (MNHL) was detected. It was treated by chemotherapy and radiation therapy. After 6 years follow-up, the patient is alive and in remission. We have found only one case of such a lymphoma(More)
