Colorectal cancer is the most frequent tumor of the digestive tract. The high incidence of abdominal dissemination; the poor prognosis of these patients, with median survival consistently ranging from 5 to 9 months in all studies of peritoneal carcinomatosis from colorectal cancer; the failure of adjuvant systemic chemotherapy treatment with a maximal(More)
Symptomatic perineal herniation after abdominoperineal resection is a rare complication and its management remains challenging. Perineal laparoscopic mesh repair is safe and effective and can be performed with minimal complications. We report a giant perineal hernia treated by a combined laparoscopic mesh repair approach and plastic resection of the(More)
A fully integrated power amplifier (PA) for 5 GHz 802.11a standard is implemented using a 0.18 mum CMOS process. In this paper we present the new concept of "power inductors". These on-chip inductors are implemented on the transistor drains and the output network and they can withstand the high level current signals that go through them while presenting low(More)
Symptomatic perineal herniation after abdominoperineal resection is a rare complication and its management remains challenging. Recurrent symptomatic perineal hernia after a previous laparoscopic mesh repair is exceptional and no standardized procedure has been deemed the “gold standard of care.” To date, this redo laparoscopic mesh repair is only the(More)
Hepatic portal venous gas in adults is a rare entity. The most frequent cause is intestinal ischemia. However, an increasing number of cases associated with benign conditions suitable for conservative treatment are being reported. We review the literature to define the clinical significance of portal venous gas, the role of computed tomography, and the need(More)
This paper presents a new methodology for measuring integrated transformers. It gives a description of the transformer and its specifications and develops a measurement system. It also presents different transformer geometries and transformer terminal combinations. After the theoretical exposition of the measurement system, a differential-differential(More)
