PATIENTS AND METHODS We used the database from our study of 507 patients with histologically proven CHC in which fibrosis was evaluated by liver biopsy (Metavir) and tests:(More)
The pretherapeutic presence of protease inhibitor (PI) resistance-associated variants (RAVs) has not been shown to be predictive of triple-therapy outcomes in treatment-naive patients. However, they may influence the outcome in patients with less effective pegylated interferon (pegIFN)-ribavirin (RBV) backbones. Using hepatitis C virus (HCV) population(More)
Conventional reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) has a high success rate. Computer-assisted navigation systems (CANSs) have been developed to further improve the accuracy of tunnel positioning. What is the economic impact from the hospital perspective? Patients having a first ACL reconstruction procedure were included in a prospective(More)
Rasmussen et al. (1) report the results of a Danish randomized controlled trial on the use of telemonitoring (TM) in diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs). They found no statistical differences in terms of wound healing or amputation between two similar groups of DFU patients followed either with TM or with standard care including regular outpatient visits. However,(More)
INTRODUCTION Islet transplantation may be an appropriate treatment option for patients with severely unstable type 1 diabetes experiencing major glucose variability with severe hypoglycaemia despite intensive insulin therapy. Few data are available on the costs associated with islet transplantation in relation to its benefits. The STABILOT study proposes to(More)
BACKGROUND Assisted vaginal delivery by vacuum extraction is frequent. Metallic resterilizible metallic vacuum cups have been routinely used in France. In the last few years a new disposable semi-soft vacuum extraction cup, the iCup, has been introduced. Our objective was to compare maternal and new-born outcomes between this disposable cup and the commonly(More)
