BACKGROUND A consecutive series of 50 patients who submitted to 53 hepatic resections with use of continuous normothermic liver ischemia is reported. METHODS Portal triad clamping has been used in 28 cases, with associated inferior vena caval clamping above and below the liver (hepatic vascular exclusion) in 25 patients. The size of the tumor required(More)
The clinical and laboratory features of 47 cases of macrophage activation syndrome (MAS) were reviewed in a workshop within the Groupe Français d'Hématologie cellulaire. There was no predilection for a particular age group, while common symptoms at presentation included fever, hepatic and splenic enlargement and profound depression of blood count.(More)
Four diets which differed in fatty acid composition were provided for five months each to a group of 24 healthy nun volunteers. The diets contained 54% carbohydrates, 16% proteins and 30% lipids. One-third of the lipid part remained unchanged during the whole study, and two-thirds were modified during each period. For this latter portion, one of the(More)

The chemical composition and metabolism of lipoproteins in a population of Benedictine nuns were studied after 5-month periods during which the predominant dietary fats were sunflower oil, peanut oil, palm oil, or milk fats (butter and cream). The population was divided into three groups. The control group (C) included twelve subjects selected at random by(More)
Von Meyenburg complexes (VMC) are rare malformations of the bile ducts. They are usually associated with adult dominant polycystic disease (ADPCD). Although generally benign, they may give rise to cholangiocarcinomas. Herein, we report the third MR documented case of VMC. The comparative diagnostic value of ultrasound (US), computed tomography (CT), and(More)
The purpose of this work was to determine whether the changes induced by dietary manipulations in the chemical composition of high-density lipoproteins (HDL) (particularly phospholipid fatty acid composition) modified their capacity to promote [3H]cholesterol efflux from cultured fibroblasts. Plasma HDL were obtained from subjects fed for six successive(More)
Nineteen hepatic resections with continuous liver ischemia exceeding one hour (60 to 85 min, m = 68 +/- 8 min) are reported. Surgery was undertaken for 15 malignant tumors, mainly metastatic, and 4 benign tumors. In 16 out of 19 cases, a major hepatic resection was necessary to remove massive and central lesions. Vascular clamping was a Pringle maneuver (9(More)
