OBJECTIVE The objective of this review is to evaluate the results of laparoscopic treatment of ventral hernias using intra-peritoneal prosthetic mesh through a review of published surgical series. METHODS All large series of patients treated for an incisional hernia by laparoscopy and published between 2002 and 2011 were identified. The results of(More)
AIM Laparoscopic gastrectomy (LG) is still not a widely accepted option for the treatment of invasive gastric cancer. This study was conducted to evaluate the results of LG for gastric adenocarcinoma in two French surgical departments. METHODS Between 2001 and 2007, 51 patients underwent LG for gastric cancer. The results were compared to those of 79(More)
Distinction of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) from liver cell dysplasia (LCD) is one of the problems faced by pathologists. In spite of various methods claimed to differentiate between these 2 lesions, no reliable marker is available until now. The aim of the study was to assess the value of alpha methylacyl-coenzyme A (COA) racemase (AMACR) in(More)
GH pathway has been shown to play a major role in liver regeneration through the control of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) activation. This pathway is down-regulated in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Because regeneration is known to be impaired in fatty livers, we wondered whether a deregulation of the GH/EGFR pathway could explain this(More)
Detection of Brucella species using nucleic acid techniques requires efficient unbiased DNA extraction procedures. In this study, we compared six protocols for DNA isolation from pure culture of Brucella melitenses 16M and the efficiency of different extraction processes were evaluated using Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR).These protocols included boiling,(More)
AIM Urgent appendectomy in patients with acute appendicitis (AA) complicated by abscess or phlegmon is associated with a high rate of complications. Recent developments in CT scanning have allowed patients with complicated appendicitis to be better identified. We choose to treat these patients with initial antibiotic therapy followed by elective(More)
AIM Prostate cancer (PCa) is the second most common cancers in men worldwide. Its incidence can be influenced by several risk factors including genetic susceptibility. Therefore the search for the expression of a certain gene (ERG) and its rearrangement could give us clues for proper identification of PCa. And the study of ERG expression and its comparison(More)
