BACKGROUND AND IMPORTANCE There is large variation in the success of decompressive surgery for pudendal neuralgia (PN), the most chronic, disabling form of perineal pain. We attempt to determine whether spinal cord stimulation using new-generation multicolumn leads could form part of the treatment algorithm for refractory PN. CLINICAL PRESENTATION A man(More)
BACKGROUND Failed back surgery syndrome represents one of the most frequent etiologies of chronic back pain and is a major public health issue. Neurostimulation has currently not been validated in the treatment of back pain because of technological limitations in implantable spinal cord stimulation (SCS) systems. New-generation leads using several columns(More)
BACKGROUND A new generation of neurostimulation surgical leads is used to increase the success of spinal cord stimulation in difficult-to-treat indications such as failed back surgery syndrome. Minimal access spinal technologies (MASTs) have previously been used for surgical lead implantation. However, only a unilateral approach was possible, causing(More)
BACKGROUND Many studies have demonstrated the efficacy of spinal cord stimulation (SCS) for chronic neuropathic radicular pain over recent decades, but despite global favourable outcomes in failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS) with leg pain, the back pain component remains poorly controlled by neurostimulation. Technological and scientific progress has led(More)
A 26-year old female developed acute fulminant amoebic colitis during the post-partum period, successfully managed by subtotal colonic resection without anastomosis. Fulminant transmural amoebic colitis is a rare life-threatening complication of invasive bowel amebiasis. Pregnancy, delivery, diabetes mellitus and immunodeficiency are the main risk factors.(More)
A double blind clinical trial was carried out on randomised groups of 20 patients each undergoing surgery for varicose veins to compare the actions of etidocaine 1% and bupivacaine 0.5% and 0.75% with adrenaline 1:200.000. Bupivacaine 0.75% and etidocaine 1% were found to be equipotent, with a rapid onset and long duration of anaesthesia, and a comparable(More)
The authors report on the experiment carried out on the use of sodium nitroprusside (NPS) in otological surgery. The acknowledged advantages of NPS over hypotensors and more particularly its spécifically vascular, périphéral, swift action, rapidly reversible, are worth mentioning. Control over the achieved hypotension however, requires careful attention to(More)
The peroperative pulmonary compliance in spontaneous ventilation is studied in two series of ten anesthetized patients with halothane and enflurane, in closed system. The tidal volumes (inspiratory and expiratory at noflow point) are recorded by pneumotachograph (Godard 17212). The intrathoracic to mouth differential pressure is recorded by pressograph(More)
