Laparoscopic Toupet fundoplication (TF) is reported to be as effective as Nissen (NF), but to be associated with fewer unfavorable postoperative side-effects. This study evaluates the one- and three-year clinical outcome of 140 randomized patients after a laparoscopic NF or TF. Inclusion criteria included patients over 16 years old with complications of(More)
OBJECTIVES Primary objective was to identify leukocyte subsets that could predict the early evolution of sepsis at 48 hours (i.e., deterioration or stability/improvement). Secondary objectives were to evaluate the prognostic value of leukocyte subsets on mortality and immunosuppressive properties of immature granulocytes. DESIGN Twenty-three peripheral(More)

BACKGROUND/AIMS The objective of our paper is to report on the remote results of patients with gastric cancer treated by mini-invasive surgery as a surgical tool with the "intention to treat with laparoscopy". METHODOLOGY Between June 1993 and January 2004, 101 patients comprising 72 men and 29 women with gastric adenocarcinoma were prospectively selected(More)
To investigate the role of reduced-intensity allogeneic (RIC-allo) stem cell transplant (SCT) as postremission therapy in adult intermediate-risk patients with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) with FLT3-ITD or wild-type NPM1 and CEBPA without FLT3-ITD, we conducted a single-center retrospective study between January 2001 and December 2010.

Imatinib is an effective first-line therapy for chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) that acts by targeting the tyrosine kinase activity of BCR-ABL. To overcome resistance, second-generation inhibitors of BCR-ABL have been developed. Among these, nilotinib is more potent against BCR-ABL than imatinib, and is effective against many imatinib-resistant BCR-ABL(More)
Surgical emergencies caused by bowel metastases from carcinoma of the lung are very rare. We describe two cases of symptomatic gastrointestinal metastatic small cell carcinoma: the first one concerns a 69-year-old man with an acute abdomen and the second is a 72-year-old man complaining of a gastric ulcer symptoms. We also discuss the current management and(More)
Diaphragmatic rupture after blunt trauma is rare, but indicates a powerful external impact. Associated lesions are often life-threatening and require a rapid diagnosis and management. We report a case of a 24-year-old man, admitted to the emergency department after a serious car accident. He complained of a left sided thoraco-abdominal pain with breathing(More)
Although numerous recent publications have demonstrated interest in multiparameter flow cytometry in the investigation of myelodysplastic disorders, it is perceived by many laboratory hematologists as difficult and expensive, requiring a high level of expertise. We report a multicentric open real-life study aimed at evaluating the added value of the(More)
