A first approach to laparoscopic placement of the adjustable silicone gastric band (ASGB) was begun in our institution in 1992. This work started on an animal model first. In the animal lab, details of laparoscopic dissection around the stomach have been defined. A new prototype of the adjustable silicone band for laparoscopic use has been devised. Four(More)
Hemodynamics during laparoscopic cholecystectomy under general anesthesia (isoflurane in N2O/O2 (50%)) were investigated in 15 nonobese ASA Class I patients by using invasive hemodynamic monitoring including a flow-directed pulmonary artery catheter. During surgery, intraabdominal pressure was maintained automatically at 14 mm Hg by a CO2 insufflator, and(More)
We have compared metabolic and respiratory changes after laparoscopic cholecystectomy (n = 15) with those after open cholecystectomy (n = 15). The durations of postoperative i.v. therapy, fasting and hospital stay were significantly shorter in the laparoscopy group. During the first and second days after operation, analgesic consumption but not pain scores(More)
BACKGROUND Prostheses are widely used in the elective treatment of adult groin hernias. Their use for strangulated hernias remains controversial because of the potential risk of sepsis. METHODS Thirty-five patients with a strangulated groin hernia were treated by insertion of a prosthetic mesh via a midline preperitoneal approach. Nine patients needed an(More)
OBJECTIVE The aims of our study were to determine if using the colon as a digestive transplant after oesophagectomy for cancer was associated with increased postoperative complications, and to assess the impact of preoperative radiochemotherapy on postoperative hospital outcome. METHODS From January 1990 to December 1998, 130 patients underwent(More)
PURPOSE To follow plasma Flt3-ligand (FL) concentrations in irradiated animals in order to evaluate it as an indicator of bone marrow damage for the management of accidental radiation-induced aplasia. MATERIALS AND METHODS Non-human primates were irradiated at doses ranging from 2 to 8 Gy, using whole- or partial-body irradiation. Plasma FL concentrations(More)
To assess the therapeutic efficacy of ex vivo-expanded hematopoietic cells in the treatment of radiation-induced pancytopenia, we have set up a non-human primate model. Two ex vivo expansion protocols for bone marrow mononuclear cells (BMMNC) were studied. The first consisted of a 7-day culture in the presence of stem cell factor (SCF), Flt3-ligand,(More)
