BACKGROUND In this long-term retrospective study, a laparoscopic technique was used for incisional hernia repair. METHODS Over a 6-year period, we performed laparoscopic repairs with prosthetic mesh in 159 patients suffering from incisional hernia. Morbidity factors were noted and operative data were collected. In addition, early and long-term(More)

In 1980, Sugarbaker [3] described a technique for paraobstomal hernia repair that avoids the removal of the stoma. Laparoscopy is a new approach that allows the use of the same technique but also respects the integrity of the abdominal wall. We used this technique in a 56-year-old female patient who presented with a left iliac paracolostomal hernia 14 years(More)
Complete and rapid cellular ingrowth is the necessary condition of an ideal parietal mesh. However, this property obtained with conventional meshes induces visceral adhesion formation in 80 to 100% of the cases when the mesh is intraperitoneally implanted. In order to combine both cellular ingrowth on one side and adhesion prevention on the other, a new(More)
Intraperitoneal positioning of conventional parietal mesh provides efficient reconstruction but causes visceral adhesion formation in 80–100% of the cases. The purpose of this clinical trial was to assess the performance and tolerance of a new generation of polyester mesh protected by a hydrophilic resorbable film. Eighty patients were included in a(More)
A 75-year-old woman with melena was found to have a carcinoid tumor in the posterior wall of the duodenal bulb. The biology was normal. The tumor measured 10 mm in size, and endoscopic ultrasonography showed only submucosal involvement. There was no liver metastasis and no regional lymph nodes. Tumoral resection was performed laparoscopically with success.(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify and assess the complications of laparoscopic inguinal hernia treatment with totally extraperitoneal mesh placement (TEP). METHODS We included patients who had undergone the TEP procedure in a consecutive series of 4565 laparoscopic hernia repairs between January 2001 and January 2011. Inclusion criteria were diagnosis with(More)
Tubular colonic duplication is a rare abnormality. The authors report here on a patient with rather nonspecific symptoms, whose abnormality was only discovered at operation. The good results obtained by a simple operative treatment of such forms contrast with the difficulties arising in clinical and radiological diagnosis. The characteristics of tubular(More)
STUDY AIM The aim of this prospective non-randomized trial was to report a series of intraperitoneal carcinomatosis due to miscellaneous causes, treated by intraperitoneal hyperthermic perfusion (IPHP) and cytoreductive surgery. PATIENTS AND METHOD From January 1995 to May 1999, 35 patients were treated by IPHP and 26 of them underwent maximal(More)
Based on the observation of septic shock and severe respiratory impairment in two patients subjected to laparoscopic surgery for small bowel occlusion, an experimental study was carried out in rabbits to evaluate the effect of intra-abdominal CO2 hyperpressure on massive bacterial spread. Increased bacterial access to the blood was observed as a result of(More)
