Of 450 patients treated for hiatus hernia, a review of case-reports showed ulcers of the neck in 15 patients (3,1%). Frequency of hemorrhage was high (13/15), and it was sometimes severe, one patient dying from massive bleeding preoperatively. Diagnosis was by radiology in 11 cases, by endoscopy in 3 and perioperatively in one case. Data on(More)
INTRODUCTION Sleeve gastrectomy as an isolated procedure is a new option in bariatric surgery. The aim of this study was to evaluate its short and medium term (2 years) results in a multicenter setting. MATERIALS This is a retrospective study including 446 patients undergoing surgery in 14 teaching, private, and public hospitals. RESULTS The immediate(More)
Post-operative morbidity and mortality factors were investigated in a retrospective study of 34 patients aged over 70 operated upon for gastric ulcer. In two-thirds of the patients the operation was motivated by a complication of the ulcer. Two-thirds presented with an concurrent disease at the time of surgery. Fourteen patients died in hospital during the(More)
Pathogeny of thoracic esophageal diverticuli, divided into parabronchial and epiphrenic, appears to have been modified by development of functional esophageal motility measurement. We present 23 patients with epiphrenic diverticuli and 3 with parabronchial diverticuli (15 male and 11 female with a mean age of 61 years). Twenty-four underwent surgery: 4(More)
Transdiaphragmatic pericardio-peritoneal shunt is an effective answer to the problem of recurrent pericardial effusion. The EEA (end to end anastomosis) stapler is a perfect tool for this technique, being easy to handle and offering the possibility of a pathological examination of the pericardic fragment removed. Five patients underwent this type of surgery(More)
The authors report a new case of myoid tumour of the stomach, a chance discovery in an asymptomatic patient. The diagnosis of a heterogeneous tumour of gastric origin was made possible by echography and tomodensitometry. The myoid nature of the tumour was confirmed histologically. With the recognition of this new case the literature on the subject was(More)
On the basis of one case, the authors give the highlights on the various clinicopathological features of malignant gastric perforations. While medical imaging does not seem to contribute much in the positive diagnosis of such complications, it does remain essential to establish the local extension of the tumour process and thus to allow a better therapeutic(More)
