BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Tracheobronchial ruptures in blunt thoracic trauma in children are rare. The aim of this study was to suggest the means of an early diagnosis and a conservative management as often as possible. METHODS Sixteen cases of tracheobronchial ruptures by blunt thoracic trauma were observed over 26 years in 9 regional pediatric centers. (More)
PURPOSE The aim of the study was to review the records of all children who presented with gastric volvulus in the past 10 years. METHODS The study group consisted of 21 children with an age range from 0.2 months to 4.3 years who were operated for gastric volvulus from 1992 to 2003. RESULTS Initial symptoms included acute abdominal pain after meals,(More)
Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) for late-presenting congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) has been described previously, but few neonatal cases of CDH have been reported. This study aimed to report the multicenter experience of these rare cases and to compare the laparoscopic and thoracoscopic approaches. Using MIS procedures, 30 patients (16 boys and 14(More)
Prenatal diagnosis of congenital lung anomalies has increased in recent years as imaging methods have benefitted from technical improvements. The purpose of this pictorial essay is to illustrate typical imaging findings of a wide spectrum of congenital lung anomalies on prenatal US and MRI. Moreover, we propose an algorithm based on imaging findings to(More)
Minimal invasive surgery (MIS) has been first proposed in case of delayed congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). Since then, about 32 cases of thoracoscopic CDH approach in newborns have been published. Conditions of thoracoscopy are reviewed and enlightened with our preliminary series. The advantages of thoracoscopy versus a laparoscopic approach are(More)
BACKGROUND Very few children need gastroesophageal antireflux surgery during their first year of life; hence, no series has been published so far. The authors report their experience in 3 centers. METHODS From January 1993 to December 1998, 36 infants between 23 days and 13 months of age, suffering from gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), underwent(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare the accuracy of prenatal ultrasonography (US) to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the characterisation of congenital lung anomalies, and to assess their agreement with final diagnosis. To evaluate the influence of additional MRI information on therapeutic management. METHODS 26 prenatal congenital lung anomalies detected(More)
Complex procedures for managing congenital abnormalities are reported to be feasible. However, neonatal videosurgery involves very specific physiologic constraints. This study evaluated the safety and complication rate of videosurgery during the first month of life and sought to determine both the risk factors of perioperative complications and the most(More)
Leiomyoma of the esophagus is not uncommon in the adult population but is rarely seen in children; only 20 cases have been reported in the pediatric population. In this paper we describe two cases of esophageal leiomyoma in female patients aged 6 and 13 years and review previous reports. Several differences were noted between the pediatric and adult(More)
Spica cast immobilization is the preferred treatment for closed femur fracture in preschool children. Flexible intramedullary nailing (FIN) is an alternative treatment but has never been specifically evaluated in this age group. A retrospective analysis of 72 children (mean age, 4.1 years; age range, 1.5-5.9 years) with 73 femur fractures treated by means(More)
