BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIM Polyp miss rates during colonoscopy have been calculated in a few tandem or back-to-back colonoscopy studies. Our objective was to assess the adenoma miss rate while limiting technique or operator expertise biases, i. e. by performing a large multicenter study, with same-day back-to-back video colonoscopy, done by two different(More)
To propose an easy and reproducible sonographic screening test able to avoid late presentation of developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH). The pubo-femoral distance (PFD) cut-off point was determined on 980 infants who underwent ultrasonography of the hips in comparison with the final diagnosis, based on clinical, ultrasound data and follow-up. PFD(More)
Due to the incidence of symptomatic atherosclerosis in uremic patients, hemostasis-derived cardiovascular risk factors, basal plasma concentrations of some endothelial-derived glycoproteins and desmopressin-induced variations of endothelial-derived proteins were studied in 22 uremic patients on prolonged maintenance hemodialysis with no cardiovascular(More)
At one month, the acetabular depth from a standard lateral coronal section is 4.6 ± 1.0mm. The correlation between experienced and junior radiologists is high (kappa 0.795). A treshhold of 6mm with a Δ (difference between right and left) less than 1.5mm provides a sensitivity of 100% for the detection of DDH at one month. Universal US screening at one month(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare an interventional protocol with a standard protocol for preventing the acquisition of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in the intensive care unit (ICU). DESIGN Prospective, randomized, controlled, parallel-group, nonblinded clinical trial. SETTING Medical ICUs of 2 French university hospitals. PARTICIPANTS Five(More)
The aim of this study was to determine and identify the factors associated with shortening or lengthening time interval from stroke onset to performance of computed tomography (CT) scan in stroke patients admitted to three French emergency departments. All suspected stroke patients were eligible (n = 317). The time intervals between stroke onset and(More)
IMPORTANCE Up-to-date estimates of the health outcomes of preterm children are needed for assessing perinatal care, informing parents, making decisions about care, and providing evidence for clinical guidelines. OBJECTIVES To determine survival and neonatal morbidity of infants born from 22 through 34 completed weeks' gestation in France in 2011 and(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Epithelioid granulomas is one of the best histological criterion for distinguishing Crohn's disease (CD) from other inflammatory bowel diseases. Few data are available on the time of occurrence of epithelioid granulomas, and the value of epithelioid granulomas in predicting outcome has been determined only in cohorts of prevalent CD(More)
CONTEXT Supplementation of breast milk is difficult once infants suckle the breast and is often discontinued at end of hospitalisation and after discharge. Thus, breastfed preterm infants are exposed to an increased risk of nutritional deficit with a possible consequence on neurodevelopmental outcome. OBJECTIVE To assess the relationship between breast(More)
The number of women exposed to a risk of anti-D allo-immunization who require care depends on the number of pregnancies, the distribution of blood groups in the Rhesus D system, and the number of allo-immunization risk situations as well as the chosen prevention protocol. In 2004, there were 790,000 pregnancies in metropolitan France. The total number of(More)
