The usefulness and accuracy rate of endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) in the diagnosis of chronic pancreatitis (CP) were prospectively evaluated in 81 patients with suspected pancreatic disease. All underwent EUS, abdominal ultrasonography (AUS), and computed tomography (CT), and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) was performed in 55 of(More)
The surgical treatment of posthemorrhagic hydrocephalus (PHH) in low-birth-weight infants (LBWI) is debated. In a few cases, hydrocephalus progresses rapidly and requires early drainage, but valves and ventriculostomy have a high rate of complications in the early phase. Temporary valveless shunt (VLS) is proposed as an alternative treatment of acute PHH in(More)
Families of 241 patients among 913 cases of idiopathic scoliosis were surveyed. The data suggest two possible modes of inheritance: either an autosomal dominant inheritance with incomplete penetrance and more frequent manifestation in girls than boys, or a genetic heterogeneity with a mixture of dominant and multifactorial modes of inheritance.
BACKGROUND Pregnancy is still uncommon in women on maintenance dialysis; and their outcomes is reported to have improved to 40% to 85% live births. Here, we report the successful multidisciplinary management of five consecutive pregnant dialysis patients. METHODS In our centre, we treated each of five patients with a systematically intensified(More)
Pregnancy is a rare occurrence in patients on chronic hemodialysis (CHD). The rate of successful pregnancies amounts to almost 60%, thanks to modifications of the dialysis schedule and a specifically adapted obstetrical and neonatal management. We report on seven pregnancies occurring between 1995 and 2001 in six women with a mean age of 32 years (22-39(More)
In rheumatoid arthritis (RA) the aim of footwear prescription and the principal concepts relating to footwear and plantar orthoses are mentioned. The role of plantar orthoses, their materials and composition but also systematic history taking and assessment of the rheumatoid foot, before designing shoes and orthoses, are evoked. The indications of plantar(More)
A retrospective study of 20,591 live born babies and still birth was made in order to estimate the incidence of congenital malformations total and by type diagnosed at birth. The total incidence is 1,74 p. 100. The sex ratio, the mean birth rank and parental ages were computed for the different types of malformation and in the control group. The birth(More)
Four patients with unresectable hepatic adenoma underwent selective hepatic artery embolization. Non-operability was related to the size and the situation of the tumor, and the clinical background. The only subsequent postembolization syndrome was one case of acute renal failure, reversible after diuretic treatment. In 3 cases the decrease in tumoral size(More)
Chronic arterial occlusion of the iliac and femoro-popliteal vessels has been considered, until recently, to be a contraindication to percutaneous transluminal angioplasty. However, recent advances in radiological and catheterisation equipment and the introduction of new methods of recanalisation (laser, mechanical devices) have increased the therapeutic(More)
Iodized oil (lipiodol) injected into the hepatic artery is selectively retained by hepatocarcinomas, as demonstrated by computerized tomography (CT) performed one week after the injection. The value of this technique for the diagnosis of hepatocarcinoma was assessed in a retrospective study of 45 patients. In 39 per cent of the cases intrahepatic tumoral(More)
