We report our experience with the endoscopic treatment of vesicoureteral reflux by a submucosal injection of Teflon in children. During a period of 20 months, 291 refluxing ureters were injected by 4 members of our surgical team. A cystography was performed 3 months later. Because 53 children have a follow-up of less than 3 months, we only consider the(More)
Two cases of haemorragic renal cyst presenting in the neonatal period are described. Ultrasound examination, excretory urogram and MRI, gave diagnosis in the second case. The remarkable histopathologic pattern of these two cases has led to propose correct diagnosis of pure cystic mesoblastic nephroma, an unusual variety of mesoblastic nephroma.
Severe thoracic kyphosis caused by pathologic fractures often needs to be corrected by resection of the collapsed vertebral body, reconstruction of the anterior spinal column, and correction of the kyphosis with long-segment fixation. The resection of this pathologic bone functions essentially as a vertebral column resection. With the advent of minimally(More)

MRI offers many advantages compared to CT scan or ultrasonography in the study of malformations, tumors, infections and anoxic-ischemic brain injury. However, MRI is limited by the duration of the examination the need for total immobility which is(More)
