Mycotic aortic aneurysms were detected in four men aged between 47 and 73 years. The infective nature of the lesion was obvious in one case, while in the other three cases the diagnosis was suspected after radiological examination and confirmed by pathological and bacteriological investigations of the aneurysm wall. Radiological signs which suggest the(More)
Three cases of heparin induced thrombotic thrombocytopenia are reported. Pathogenesis, clinical and biological manifestations as well as treatment are reviewed. Treatment consisted in replacing the heparin by a vitamin K antagonist or a low molecular weight heparin. During heparin treatment, the risk of thrombotic thrombocytopenia should be kept in mind and(More)
This is a report of a patient with a thrombosed distal spleno-renal shunt with gastro-splenic disconnection and post-operative recurrent variceal hemorrhage. After portocaval shunt, a high venous pressure in the gastro-splenic sector demonstrates a compartmentalized venous hypertension. Splenectomy normalized this segmental portal hypertension, this(More)
Experience with the EEA stapler device used in 30 esophagogastric resections for cancer with intrathoracic anastomosis, is reported. The mortality rate was 13.3%. The anastomotic failure rate was 3.3% (1/30) with only one death; three asymptomatic blind fistulas were found on a routine contrast examination of the anastomosis. It is felt that esophagogastric(More)
Concomitant discovery of long-standing arteriovenous fistula (AVF) and proximal dilatation is commonplace whereas the disclosure of proximal arterial dilatation several years after closure of AVF is much more surprising and less often described. The goal of this study was to call attention to this late complication, to evaluate its prevalence, and to(More)
