Sir, angiomyomatous hamartoma (AH) of the lymph node is a benign vascular disorder of unknown etiology, first described by Chan et al. in 1992 [1]. This uncommon disease particularly affects lymph nodes of the inguinal area, but cases involving femoral or cervical lymph nodes have also been described [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]. A peculiar characteristic of this(More)
PURPOSE Angiomyomatous hamartoma (AH) of the lymph node is a rare vascular benign disease of unknown etiology with a predisposition for the lymph nodes of the inguinal area. Only 18 cases have been described up to now in the literature and the disorder was reported to be associated with lymphedema or swelling of the ipsilateral limb in 4 patients. However,(More)
AIMS To determine the frequency of supradiaphragmatic lymph nodes that receive lymph from the lower limbs and the intraabdominal organs. METHODS Three hundred and thirty-four bipedal lymphoscintigraphy results of the lower limbs were reviewed. RESULTS Lymph nodes were visualized in only the supraclavicular/retroclavicular (SRC) area in 113 cases (33.2%,(More)
From a series of 58 cholecystectomies for chronic cholecystitis or for asymptomatic cholelithiasis, the authors have retrieved: 1) gall microbial contamination in 15,5% of the samples under study; 2) a complicated evolution--according to criteria defined for this research--of the operative wounds in 37,5% of the cases with positive gall cultures, and in 11%(More)
The authors report the case of a young woman with right lower limb edema who also presented one steatorrhea. Her clinical history is typical for one primary lymphedema and the lymphoscintigraphic investigation of the lower limbs confirms the diagnosis. The scan showed the absence of the right iliac and lomboaortic lymph nodes but also that the thoracic duct(More)
Rupture of an abdominal aortic aneurysm remains a dramatic complication and its operative mortality is still about 50%. The authors reviewed 41 cases of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms which were operated from 1978 to 1983. On arrival at the hospital and after clinical diagnosis, the patients were rapidly brought to the theatre without specialized(More)
Study by plethysmography with mercury gauge. The authors have analyzed the effects of "anti-thrombosis" stockings on venous hemodynamics of 18 lower extremities, by plethysmography with mercury gauge (Periflow J.S.I.). With this method, they delineate the limits of efficacy of the use of only elastic stockings as prophylactic treatment of the(More)
The plethysmographic tracings of a patient presenting a deep venous thrombosis, give information about the functional evolution of the affected limb. The plethysmographic parameters which are used to estimate the efficacy of the treatment of the deep venous thrombosis are: the venous capacitance, the venous outflow and the venous pressure. These values are(More)
