Between January 1, 1971, and December 31, 1978, 73 patients with adenocarcinoma of the cardia were treated by total gastrectomy with distal esophagectomy. The continuity of the alimentary tract was restored by esophagojejunostomy using a Roux-Y procedure in 32 patients and jejunal loop interposition in 41 patients. The early postoperative mortality rate was(More)
Laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication is currently the gold standard for surgical treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease. The aim of this study was to present our experience with this procedure at 1 year of follow-up. Forty patients were operated on between January 2006 and July 2007, and 30 underwent a 24-hour postoperative pH-metry study. Ninety-two(More)
The A.A. present a case report of retroperitoneal spontaneous hematoma and put in evidence the difficulties in making an etiopathogenetic diagnosis of spontaneous renal cyst rupture. The patient was a 72 years old man admitted to the hospital in emergency for a painful ipogastric syntomatology and biliary vomit. The ecography showed a distanced gallbladder(More)
BACKGROUND Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) has emerged as one of the most common diseases in the modern civilization.The immense success of laparoscopic surgery as an effective treatment of GERD has established the minimally invasive surgery as the gold standard for this condition with lower morbidity and mortality, shorter hospital stay, faster(More)
The pattern and sites of recurrence were studied in 270 patients with resected Stage I (NO) or Stage II (Nl) non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Survival, incidence, and type of intrathoracic locoregional recurrence versus distant extra-thoracic recurrence after surgical excision were analyzed. Prognostic parameters, such as postsurgical stage, histologic(More)
Spontaneous subcapsular splenic hematoma formation without rupture in infectious mononucleosis is a very unusual occurrence. A conservative management is successful in those patients in stable condition. We describe the presentation and the clinical progress of a case in whom a sudden enlargement in hematoma's diameter needed a splenectomy to avoid the risk(More)
Among the pathologies responsible for dysphagia in the elderly, the aortic compression on the distal oesophagus awakens a certain clinical interest. Cipho-lordosis, which is often present in aged females, worsens the effects of this compression causing other kinkings on the oesophagus already hypokinetic because of the age (presbyoesophagus). This illness(More)
AIM Gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) has emerged as one of the most common diseases in modern civilization. We investigated functional evaluation after total fundoplication without division of short gastric vessels and review of literature. METHODS From January 2007 to June 2008 43 patients with chronic gastroesophageal reflux underwent(More)
