BACKGROUND Vertical banded gastroplasty (VBG) has been our procedure of choice for the treatment of morbid obesity from 1981-1995, at which time it was replaced by laparoscopic gastric banding. Three different techniques have been used for banding: silastic band, marlex mesh, adjustable sphincter. The purpose of this paper is to present the long-term(More)
The treatment of biliary lithiasis has changed during the past 20 years. Cholecystectomy remains the gold standard for cholelithiasis, but many options are available for calculi of the common bile duct. Among them are surgical open or laparoscopic choledochotomy, biliary-enteric anastomosis, transduodenal sphincterotomy (TDS), endoscopic sphincterotomy.(More)
Tumor-associated angiogenesis is emerging as an important prognostic factor and represents a hopeful potential therapeutic target for the cancer treatment. Bladder tumors, as all solid tumors, require an active angiogenesis to support their growth and progression. The angiogenic phenotype observed within a tumor is determined in large part by the balance(More)
BACKGROUND The introduction of laparoscopy and the increasing awareness that surgery is the only efficient long-term treatment for morbid obesity have been followed by an enormous increase in the demand for bariatric surgery. We introduced laparoscopic gastric banding (GB) in 1995, after a 15-year experience with vertical banded gastroplasty (VBG). The aim(More)
Spontaneous subcapsular splenic hematoma formation without rupture in infectious mononucleosis is a very unusual occurrence. Splenic rupture in infectious mononucleosis (Pfeiffer disease, or glandular fever) is a rare but life-threatening complication. A conservative management is successful in those patients in stable condition. We describe the(More)
Endorectal ultrasonography has become the preferred exam to assess the local extent of rectal cancers. From 1990 to 1992, we have examined 28 patients with a rectal cancer. The tumours were classified according to the TNM. The objective of this exam is to identify patients whose tumours have invaded the perirectal fat. These patients are first treated in(More)
