OBJECTIVES We sought to evaluate immediate and late outcomes after stenting for left main coronary artery (LMCA) stenosis. BACKGROUND Conventional percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA), for which coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) has been the gold standard therapy for years, has yielded poor results in unprotected LMCA lesions. The(More)
Subacute thrombosis of coronary stents may occur up to the end of the first month after their implantation and remains the major problem associated with the technique. A cohort of 238 patients with placement of one or more stents in 244 arteries was monitored for this period. All patients were given 500 mg/day of ticlopidine (started 3 days before) and a(More)
82 endoscopic surgical procedures (abdominal: 77; thoracic: 5) were performed by the same surgeon on 75 children aged from 1 month to 17 years (median 8.1 years) during the two-year period from January 1991 to December 1992. Due to the multispecialization of the Children's Hospital, a variety of pathologies were explored or treated with appendectomy(More)
BACKGROUND Indication for surgical exploration of the contralateral groin during unilateral herniorraphy in children is the subject of a worldwide debate. Routine exploration based on the likelihood of a patent processus vaginalis (PV) according to age, gender or side to some extent leads to unnecessary procedures, while routine abstention may leave a(More)
The authors describe an unusual case of hydatid cyst inserted in the inferior vena cava and extending into the right atrium. The transoesoesophageal echocardiographic appearances were similar to those of a thrombus: the tumour was very mobile, echogenic, polylobular with a cord-like pedicle in the inferior vena cava. The pathological examination revealed a(More)
Background: The aim of this study was to show the feasibility of an experimental model of gastroschisis using fetoendoscopic surgery on sheep fetuses, and also to perform amnioinfusion until delivery using an in-dwelling intraamniotic catheter. Methods: We analyzed the data from 18 pregnant ewes having 26 fetuses, which underwent surgery at 80 days of(More)
We describe an experimental surgical model in early rabbit embryo (12.5 days of gestation). Twenty-one embryos were operated, of which 9 survived the first postoperative week and 5 had normal further growth until term. As far as we can ascertain, this is the first successful report of a surgical approach in early mammalian embryos. We think that this model(More)
We describe herein a new model of surgical approach of an early mammalian embryo. Indeed the developmental mechanisms of numerous congenital anomalies, such as bladder exstrophy, remain obscure, and progresses in their knowledge must be achieved to propose better treatments. But up to now all the successful reports in experimental models of early produced(More)
AIMS The BiodivYsio stent is a new stent coated with phosphorylcholine, a biocompatible molecule designed to reduce the formation of thrombus and potentially the risk of restenosis. The feasibility, safety, and efficacy of elective and urgent implantation of this coated coronary stent were prospectively studied. METHODS AND RESULTS We studied 224 patients(More)
