BACKGROUND Carotid stenting is less invasive than endarterectomy, but it is unclear whether it is as safe in patients with symptomatic carotid-artery stenosis. METHODS We conducted a multicenter, randomized, noninferiority trial to compare stenting with endarterectomy in patients with a symptomatic carotid stenosis of at least 60%. The primary end point(More)
PURPOSE Atherosclerotic lesions of the aortic arch are potential sources of arterial embolism. Here we investigate whether surgery, with the necessary circulatory supports, can be proposed as a good option for treatment of this problem. Study of these lesions on a national scale in France has made possible the assessment for future indications of techniques(More)
BACKGROUND Despite apparently good clinical results with retrograde cerebral perfusion during operation on the aortic arch, there is still concern about the real distribution of the blood injected in the superior vena cava to the brain, especially when the internal jugular vein is valvulated (88% of the cases). This anatomic study was carried out to(More)
Ischemia occurring during hyperextension of the upper limb in a 25-year-old woman led to the discovery of a supracondylar spur responsible for compression of the brachial artery with anomalous insertion of the pronator teres muscle. Resection of all abnormal structures provided immediate relief of symptoms. When atypical arterial symptoms of thoracic outlet(More)
We undertook a prospective double-blind study of 128 carotid artery bifurcations using colour Doppler and duplex sonography and angiography. Sixty-four patients with cerebrovascular events were admitted for angiography. All underwent sonography within 24 h of angiography. Standard duplex sonography and colour Doppler imaging without spectral analysis were(More)
The retro-oesophageal right subclavian a. is a classical variant. We report the first case recognised in the embryo (11 mm subject reconstructed by Born's method). Four other adult cases are analysed (1 dissection and 3 clinical cases) and compared with 250 clinical observations of the supraaortic trunks. In the modal state it arises from the 7th arterial(More)
The authors report 5 cases (3 women and 2 men) of extrinsic stenosis of the coeliac axis by the arcuate ligament of the diaphragm. In one of the latter, the stenosis of the coeliac axis was associated with chronic calcific pancreatitis. These 5 patients were operated on. Division of the arcuate ligament gave on the whole very favourable results. (3(More)

The high-quality aesthetic prosthesis can be equally helpful to those with acquired amputation and to those whose loss is due to agenesis. Restoring near-normal appearance improves patients' function in a global sense, enabling them to better utilize what they have in the complex socioeconomic environment of today's mobile society. The aesthetic prosthesis(More)
The authors studied two cases of persistent axial artery of the lower limb, a classic but exceptional variation (42 cases in the literature). It is well explained by embryology and is a recapitulation of anatomy in the animal series. By the systematic study of the literature, we can isolate four distinct types: Type I: Complete axial artery, normal femoral(More)
