OBJECTIVE Early stage primary carcinoma of the fallopian tube (PCFT) is an uncommon condition when strict criteria are applied. The aim of this study was to compare the outcome stage IA-IB PCFT to a matched group of ovarian cancer (OC). METHODS Between 1990 and 2008, 32 patients with stage IA-IB of PCFT were recorded in the database of three French(More)
AIM To identify predictors for infiltrating carcinoma and lymph node involvement, before immediate breast reconstructive surgery, in patients with an initial diagnosis of extensive pure ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast (DCIS). PATIENTS AND METHODS Between January 2000 and December 2009, 241 patients with pure extensive DCIS in preoperative biopsy(More)
SUMMARY Autologous fat grafting is commonly performed in reconstructive breast surgery but also increasingly in breast augmentation surgery. On the international level, we are witnessing an important increased confidence for this procedure. Nevertheless, it continues to raise questions on the risks of cancer. A 66-year-old patient benefited from a(More)
BACKGROUND Breast augmentation is one of the most popular aesthetic surgical procedures. The only potential alternative is autologous fat grafting (AFG), which is not new in principle. This procedure has been used on native breasts since 2009, following the recommendations of some learned societies. OBJECTIVES We performed a systematic review to determine(More)
OBJECTIVES Endoscopy is a key tool in the diagnosis and management planning of peritoneal carcinomatosis. The aim of this study was to determine which type of endoscope is the most efficient for comprehensive staging of the upper abdomen peritoneal surface. METHODS From April 2010 to February 2011, endoscopies were performed on five human female(More)
Safety of the autologous fat grafting (AFG) in the breast parenchyma remains a debated topic, particularly in reconstruction following breast cancer. This procedure still raises many questions, especially considering recent in vitro studies warning about the fact that lipofilling could promote tumor recurrence through increased neoangiogenesis, or(More)
The outcome of patients presenting with vaginal melanoma has been assessed in a large multicentric retrospective study. The databases of 12 French institutions were searched for primary vaginal melanomas managed between 1990 and 2007. Among the 54 patients recorded, 46 were managed with a curative intent and included in the study. The clinical(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE The aims of this study were to evaluate survival and ovarian prognosis in patients treated for ovarian germ cell tumor (OGCT) and to propose a decision-making protocol. METHODS Charts of girls operated on for OGCT from 1976 up to 2009 were reviewed retrospectively. Tumor characteristics were assessed by tumor markers, imaging, and(More)
BACKGROUND Paratubal masses are common, but paratubal carcinoma is an extremely rare entity. CASE We report a case of a 44-year-old nulliparous female who suffered from abdominal pain for three months. Abdominal and pelvic ultrasound revealed a 30 cm left adnexal mass originally. Laparotomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy was performed. Final(More)
