BACKGROUND Multiresistant bacterial strains tend to develop, especially enterobacteriacae, in intraabdominal infections. The aim of this study was to characterize the evolution of the bacterial biota in complicated appendicitis in children over the past 20 years and their acquired resistance rates to antibiotics. MATERIALS AND METHODS All pediatric(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the present study was to assess, after adaptation to French, the only specific quality of life (QoL) instrument for children with Hirschsprung's disease or anorectal malformation, the Hirschsprung's disease/Anorectal Malformation Quality of Life questionnaire (HAQL), in order to get a standardized QoL evaluation instrument that could(More)
INTRODUCTION Urethral and suprapubic catheterizations are the two methods for urinary drainage. Systematic simulation training could improve the performance and reduce iatrogenic complications. The aim of the study was to evaluate the skills retention using simulation training. MATERIALS AND METHODS It was an experimental study of the effect of urinary(More)
PURPOSE Thoracoscopic lung resection for congenital pulmonary airway malformation (CPAM) is a safe technique for children. Our purpose was to evaluate the feasibility of a fast-track protocol in such cases. METHODS From September 2007 to May 2016, 101 patients underwent a thoracoscopic pulmonary resection of which 83 for CPAM (lobectomy, wedge resection(More)
Robotic surgery has seen increasing use in the field of pediatric surgery. Our clinical experience suggested instrument size can impact on the surgical ability. This study aimed to compare the performance of robot-assisted laparoscopic skills in confined spaces using either 5 or 8 mm instruments. A preclinical randomized crossover study design was(More)
Robotic technology allows for the management of complex surgical cases with a minimally invasive approach. The aim of this study was to communicate our experience using robotic technology for non-scheduled pediatric procedures (NSP). We performed a prospective study over the last 5 years including all consecutive cases where surgery was performed with a(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare the outcomes of robot-assisted heminephrectomy for duplex kidney in children with those of open heminephrectomy. METHODS The present retrospective multicentric analysis reviewed the records of robot-assisted versus open heminephrectomy carried out for duplex kidney in children from 2007 to 2014. Demographic data, weight, surgical(More)
BACKGROUND The Hirschsprung's disease Anorectal malformation QoL questionnaire (HAQL) is a disease-specific quality of life (QoL) questionnaire for patients with Hirschsprung's disease (HD) or anorectal malformations (ARM). It was originally proposed in Dutch and is currently being translated into other languages to obtain an internationally standardized(More)
To compare the learning curves for mastering OP and LP surgical techniques, in terms of effects on completion times and postoperative outcomes/complications. A retrospective analysis was performed for 198 patients with hypertrophic pyloric stenosis. The learning curves were in regard to two groups of surgeons: three of whom performed 106 OPs while three(More)
