The life expectancy of patients with localized prostate cancer at treatment initiation has increased, and post-treatment quality of life has become a key issue. The aim of this study is to assess the impact of Radical prostatectomy (RP) on patients' sexual health and satisfaction according to sexual motivation using a self-administered questionnaire(More)
Skin cancers originating in areas of chronic injury (Marjolin's ulcers) are thought to behave in a more aggressive fashion than those due to other causes. The initial surgical treatment, especially the management of the regional lymph nodes, remains controversial. This review of 37 patients with Marjolin's ulcer evaluated the effectiveness of local surgical(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of the study was to report surgical techniques for pelvic organ prolapse and complications in women aged more than 70 years. PATIENTS AND METHODS A Medline search was made for articles indexed between 2000 and 2006 and dealing with operative techniques for pelvic organ prolapse. Seven articles in English and French were included. (More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the most relevant findings for diagnosis of adnexal torsion and predictive factors of adnexal necrosis. PATIENTS AND METHODS Clinical, biological, ultrasound, pathologic and surgical findings in surgically confirmed cases of adnexal torsion treated over a five-year period in a gynaecologic emergency department were retrospectively(More)
BACKGROUND Several authors reported sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) after neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NC). Nevertheless, the ideal time of SLNB is still a matter of debate. METHODS We evaluated the feasibility and the accuracy of SLNB before NC using a combined procedure (blue dye and radio-labelled detection) before NC. Axillary lymph node dissection(More)
The best surgical option for the management of severe cases of Peyronie's disease is currently a matter of debate. To determine medium-term outcomes and complications after treatment of severe Peyronie's disease by porcine small intestinal submucosa (SIS) grafts, we retrospectively reviewed 33 consecutive plaque incisions followed by 4-ply SIS grafting in(More)
Bucrylate tissue adhesive has been found to be effective in achieving closure of surgically created bronchopleural fistulas in dogs. Success was obtained with both endoscopic and direct application. Clinical application of this method in one patient was successful [unpublished observations]. We believe that the speed, low risk, and cost-effectiveness of(More)

We performed a retrospective review of patients who were treated by Ablatherm at our centre. We recorded all technical incidents, treatment(More)
INTRODUCTION Pathological endothelin axis is known to be involved in prostate cancer progression. Our study evaluates immunohistochemical expression of ET-1 and ET-AR on prostate biopsy specimen and the predictive value for biochemical relapse on patients with advanced and metastatic cancer. We also evaluated the impact of ET-1 and ET-AR expression on local(More)
