New materials related to principles of(More)
A new case of congenital cyst of the pancreas is reported. A 34-year-old woman was admitted with a painless, large, epigastric mass. Ultrasonography revealed an anechogenic retrogastric tumor. Computed tomography scan described a liquid cyst of the pancreas which was 15 cm in diameter. During surgery, a well-delimited translucent cyst was found and no local(More)
National trauma registries have helped improve patient outcomes across the world. Recently, the idea of an International Trauma Data Bank (ITDB) has been suggested to establish global comparative assessments of trauma outcomes. The objective of this study was to determine whether global trauma data could be combined to perform international outcomes(More)
Emergency thoracotomy (ET) is a procedure that provides rapid access to intrathoracic structures for thoracic trauma patients arriving at the hospital in extremis. This study assesses the accessibility of intrathoracic structures provided by six different ET incisions. We hypothesize that the bilateral anterior thoracotomy (“clamshell” incision) provides(More)
BACKGROUND Blunt thoracic trauma including behind armour blunt trauma or impact from a less lethal kinetic weapon (LLKW) projectile may cause injuries, including pulmonary contusions that can result in potentially lethal secondary complications. These lung injuries may be caused by intrathoracic pressure waves. The aim of this study was to observe dynamic(More)
In a preceding study, we had reviewed and evaluated the anatomy sites available on the Internet. The evolution of the available sites, the disappearance of certain sites and the appearance of new sites led us to update this list. In addition, the German-speaking sites were included in the study, which previously included only the Anglophone and(More)
The NPAC visible human viewer (NPAC VHV), graphical interface written in JAVA, freely accessible by the Web, allows the display of anatomic cross-sections of the Visible Human Project developed by the National Library of Medicine. In April 1997, the Medical Media Library of Lyons undertook the construction of a French-language mirror site of the NPAC VHV.(More)
The World Health Organization (WHO) has identified trauma as the major health care challenge of our century, claiming more productive life years worldwide than any other disease [1]. In the European Union (EU), injury accounts for 15 % of all deaths before the age of 60 years and is the fourth most common cause of death, with more than 235,000 deaths each(More)
The authors report the case of a 58-year-old man who developed four pancreatic metastases ten years after radical nephrectomy for pT3NO renal cell carcinoma. Total pancreatectomy was performed and, three years later, the patient was in good general health, free from any tumour recurrence. Pancreatic metastases from renal cell carcinoma are rare and(More)
