The histological relationships between fibrotic tissue, endometriotic foci and nerves in the rectovaginal septum endometriotic or adenomyotic nodule were studied. This is considered to be one of the most severe forms of deep endometriosis. Masson's trichrome staining for fibrosis detection and immunohistochemistry with the S100 monoclonal antibody for nerve(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE To assess the impact of laparoscopic resection of endometriotic nodules in the rectovaginal pouch of Douglas on women's pain symptoms, analgesic intake, work absenteeism, work difficulties, and some elements of sex life. DESIGN Observational study (Canadian Task Force classification II-2). SETTING Gynecology department at a university(More)
The developmental mechanisms through which the cerebral cortex increased in size and complexity during primate evolution are essentially unknown. To uncover genetic networks active in the developing cerebral cortex, we combined three-dimensional reconstruction of human fetal brains at midgestation and whole genome expression profiling. This novel approach(More)
Small renal tumors are increasingly diagnosed and are frequently treated by nephron-sparing surgery. Tumors can be ablated by radiofrequency (RF) energy, which allows the operator to create very localized necrotic lesions. Radiofrequency interstitial tumor ablation (RITA) has been used in human kidneys in an ex vivo experiment to assess the necrotic lesions(More)
Deep infiltrating endometriosis (deeper than 5 mm under the peritoneum) often takes the form of a nodular lesion (or 'adenomyotic nodule') consisting of smooth muscles and fibrosis with active glands and scanty stroma. Thus, among endometriotic lesions, a certain distinction is drawn between musculo-glandular lesions and glandular lesions composed of(More)
The prevalence and significance of restless legs syndrome was assessed in 307 patients presenting to an acute-care geriatric medical service. Fifteen patients (5%) had restless legs syndrome; 13 (87%) of these patients had insomnia and 10 (67%) reported troublesome or frequent leg symptoms. Of 147 patients with current insomnia, iron deficiency (serum(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to investigate a possible role for nerve growth factor (NGF) in the mechanism of pain and hyperalgesia induced by deep adenomyotic nodules and other forms of endometriosis and to clarify the relationship between endometriotic lesions and the surrounding nerves. METHODS Endometriotic lesions (deep adenomyotic nodules,(More)
BACKGROUND Little is known about the mode and the extent of infiltration of endometriotic lesions in the large bowel. METHODS In 31 patients undergoing large bowel resection for severe deep-infiltrating endometriosis of the sigmoid and rectum with severe digestive symptoms, we performed a prospective morphological, histological and immunohistological(More)
Lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma (LELC) of uterine cervix is an uncommon variant of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). We report here 2 new cases in which DNA sequences from human papilloma virus (HPV) types 16 and 18 were detected by polymerase chain reaction (PCR). To the best of our knowledge, HPV infection has not been previously described in similar cases(More)
