A randomised, double-blind study of polyethylene glycol 4000 and lactulose in the treatment of constipation in children
TLDR
PEG 4000 has superior efficacy to lactulose for the treatment of chronic constipation in young children and is well tolerated. Expand
Total laparoscopic hysterectomy: preliminary results.
TLDR
The results confirm that total hysterectomy via laparoscopy is a safe, feasible and reproducible technique and suggests that laparoscopic surgery is only indicated when vaginal hysterenctomy is contra-indicated or impossible. Expand
Efficacy of Diosmectite (Smecta)® in the Treatment of Acute Watery Diarrhoea in Adults: A Multicentre, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Parallel Group Study
TLDR
Diosmectite at 6 g tid was well tolerated and reduced the time to recovery of acute watery diarrhoea episode in a clinically relevant manner. Expand
Sterilization reversal: fertility results.
TLDR
Analysis of the fertility results demonstrated that age was the most significant predictive factor for fertility outcome following sterilization reversal by laparotomy, and microsurgical repermeabilization can be retained as the first choice rather than in-vitro fertilization. Expand
Diagnostic value for rheumatoid arthritis of antiperinuclear factor at the 1:100 threshold. Study of 600 patients and meta-analysis of the literature.
TLDR
Six hundred sera from patients with chronic rheumatic diseases including 429 with rheumatoid arthritis were tested in a blind fashion for IgG antiperinuclear factor using an indirect fluorescent antibody assay on buccal cells to demonstrate that antiper inuclear factor testing contributes usefully to the diagnosis of rhethritis.

Surgery: Total laparocscopic hysterectomy: preliminary results
TLDR
The results confirm that total hysterectomy via laparoscopy is a safe, feasible and reproducible technique and suggests that laparoscopic surgery is only indicated when vaginal hysteretomy is contra-indicated or impossible. Expand
Oral diosmectite reduces stool output and diarrhea duration in children with acute watery diarrhea.
TLDR
It is shown that diosmectite significantly decreased stool output in children with acute watery diarrhea, especially those who were rotavirus-positive. Expand
[Prognostic value of the Lauren and Ming classifications in gastric adenocarcinoma. Multidimensional analysis].
TLDR
Of the various pathology classifications for gastric carcinoma, those of Lauren and of Ming have been claimed to be of prognostic value, no correlation was found between survival and pathology according to Lauren's or Ming's classifications, sex, parietal involvement, or age. Expand
[Total laparoscopic hysterectomy. Operative technique, results and indications].
TLDR
These results confirm that total laparoscopic hysterectomy via laparoscopy is a safe, feasable and reproductible technique and that the combination of an immobile uterus and poor vaginal accessibility is the prime indication for total hysteretomy via Laparotomy. Expand
