Findings in several cases are used to demonstrate that certain vertebral angiomas may not be congenital and can ultimately provoke medullary or radicular neurologic complications. Radiotherapy is the usual treatment but is not always accepted unconditionally close to spinal cord. Destruction of angioma and consolidation of vertebral column can be obtained(More)
BACKGROUND Results of bilobectomy for non-small cell lung cancer have rarely been studied. METHODS Retrospective analysis was conducted on patients with non-small cell lung cancer having undergone bilobectomy from January 1999 to June 2012 at our institution. Analysis aimed at determining perioperative mortality and morbidity, and at studying prognostic(More)
The case of an infant admitted for evaluation of severe emaciation with intermittent ocular anomalies including strabismus and nystagmus is reported. This case demonstrates the value of magnetic resonance imaging and transfontanellar ultrasonography for the diagnosis of diencephalic syndrome of infancy. The prognosis of this condition is usually grim, in(More)
A case of major hepatic injury with associated juxtahepatic trauma is reported. Repair of the injuries was effected with the aid of extracorporeal circulation. This aided exposure of the bleeding site while at the same time minimizing blood loss. Hypothermia is an added benefit of this approach, decreasing the risk of hepatic ischaemia.
We report a case of late CNS relapse of Whipple disease without articular or digestive signs. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of the brain clearly showed the disappearance of the normal low intensity signal of the aqueduct of Sylvius and the presence of high intensity signals in the frontal white matter and in the caudate nucleus. This case suggests that MR(More)
OBJECTIVES To analyse statistical aspects of mortality, morbidity and survival after bilobectomy (BT), an operation rarely studied in the literature. METHODS One hundred and ten cases were studied, comprising 58 upper-middle bilobectomies and 52 lower-middle bilobectomies performed between 1999 and 2010. Indications were of 9 benign diseases, 12 carcinoid(More)
A 62-year-old woman underwent a reduction of a proximal reduced humeral fracture, which was fixed by 3 Kirschner pins. One year later, the orthopedic surgeon failed to remove one of the wires. The patient was lost to follow-up, and 4 years later, she presented with hemoptysis, revealing migration of the pin to the lung. The pin was removed through a(More)
A total of 106 lesions due to vascular injuries (noniatrogenic) to limbs were treated in 81 patients at the CHR, Rennes (Cardiovascular and Thoracic Unit) between 1970 and 1983. Analysis of data allowed a profile of arterial lesions (type and location) to be retraced, and demonstrated the high frequency of associated lesions, these varying in distribution(More)
