Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most frequent arythmia. During the perioperative period and in intensive care units, management of patients with AF is frequent and difficult. As in cardiology, two main issues are present: the risk of acute hemodynamically instability and the risk of thromboembolic complication. Cardiological guidelines recently published(More)
This study concerns four cases of sinus pericranii observed at the Neurological Department of Nancy. Sinus pericranii is a direct communication between the outer surface of the skull and the intracranial venous sinuses. It may be congenital, acquired or traumatic. This abnormality, usually located in the midline and often in the frontal region, is usually(More)
Acute haemocholecyst is a rare disorder but often reported in patients with gallstones. Rupture of the gallbladder causing hypovolaemic shock secondary to massive intraperitoneal bleeding has been reported in about fifty patients to date. We report a new case of haemocholecyst with rupture of the gallbladder in a patient with gallstones treated by(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Proctocolectomy with ileoanal anastomosis (IAA) has proved to be the most suitable surgical treatment for ulcerative colitis. The aim of this study was to compare the results of IAA according to the evolution of surgical procedures and particularly to compare the results of stapled versus hand-sewn anastomosis. METHODOLOGY From 1984 to(More)
Fibrin sealants are commonly used in liver surgery. The aim of this study was to test the adhesive properties of a biological sealant-collagen bonding, using an experimental model. After hepatectomy in dogs, we measured the rupture stress point of a fibrin clot on the liver cross-section. The tensile strength was 0.28 N, 5 times higher than the force of(More)
Thirty cases of superficial cancer of the stomach were treated over a ten-year period from 1984 to 1993. Actuarial survival rate at 5 years was 73%. The depth of cancer invasion has a predominant effect on two prognosis factors: mucosal and submucosal involvement. Invasion of the lymph nodes is more frequent in cases with submucosal invasion. Treatment is(More)
Appendiceal mucoceles (AM) are rare lesions of the appendix, characterized by an accumulation of mucus. Two main pathogenic mechanisms may be invoked to explain their development. Firstly, AM are secondary to an obstruction of the appendiceal lumen for a wide variety of reasons. Secondly, they may be due to tumours of the appendix, whether malignant(More)
Forty-two patients underwent a resection for acute or chronic complications of Crohn's disease during the years 1983-1987. The colon was involved in 38% (16 patients), the small bowel in 31% (13 patients) and the ileocaecal region in 31%. In small bowel disease, the indication for operation was either an intestinal obstruction or an internal abscess. In(More)
