BACKGROUND Bilateral hearing impairment is rare in vertebrobasilar occlusive disease. SUMMARY OF COMMENT Between 1986 and 1991, we encountered seven patients (four men, three women; median age, 61 years; range, 46-71 years) who had sudden bilateral hearing impairment among 503 patients with vertebrobasilar occlusive disease. The main initial neurological… (More)
We present herein a case report of a viable cornual pregnancy rupture, inducing massive hemoperitoneum, treated laparoscopically.
Laparoscopic surgery planning is usually realized on a preoperative image that does not correspond to the operating room conditions. Indeed, the patient undergoes gas insufflation (pneumoperitoneum) to allow instrument manipulation inside the abdomen. This insufflation moves the skin and the viscera so that their positions do no longer correspond to the… (More)
Ultrasonography is the lowest cost no risk medical imaging technique. However, reading an ultrasonographic (US) image as well as performing a good US probe positioning remain difficult tasks. Education in this domain is today performed on patients, thus limiting it to the most common cases. In this paper, we present a cost effective simulator that allows US… (More)
