The aim of this study was to compare the outcomes of single-incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy (SILC) and conventional laparoscopic cholecystectomy (CLC). Patients’ inclusion criteria were uncomplicated gallstones, BMI ≤30, ASA score ≤2, and no past surgery in the upper abdomen. Five surgeons performed only SILC and seven only CLC. Data analyzed included(More)
Duodenal impaction of a gallstone after its migration through a cholecystoduodenal fistula is an uncommon cause of gallstone ileus described as Bouveret's syndrome. Surgical treatment is recommended, but the morbidity and mortality rates are nearly 60% and 30%, respectively. To reduce these rates using improved endoluminal surgery, a laparoscopically(More)
To access the incidence and predictive factors of incisional hernia after single-incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy (SILC). Eighty-two consecutive patients operated on for uncomplicated cholelithiasis between 2009 and 2013 were eligible for the study. Clinical outcome was assessed by a combination of case notes review, office consultation and telephone(More)
Parastomal hernia (PSH) is a very frequent complication after creation of a permanent colostomy. The aim of that study is to assess the safety and the long-term efficacy of an intra-peritoneal onlay mesh (IPOM) positioned at the time of primary stoma formation to prevent PSH occurrence. That multicentre prospective study concerned 29 consecutive patients(More)
To evaluate the respiratory morbidity resulting from myocardial revascularization with internal mammary artery (IMA) graft, we reviewed 153 patients operated on between April and November 1988. There were 124 men with a mean age of 61 years. A bilateral IMA graft was used in 30 patients (20%). During the harvesting of the mammary graft, the homolateral(More)
This clinical study was designed to assess the efficacy and safety of COVA+™, a collagen membrane (CM), for the prevention of postoperative adhesions in abdominal surgery. This prospective multicenter study concerned one hundred and thirteen patients undergoing two-stage abdominal surgeries between 2011 and 2014: either bariatric surgery (BS) or reversal of(More)
To assess the long-term incidence and predictive factors for recurrence after laparoscopic ventral hernia repair using a bridging technique. The study group consisted of 213 consecutive patients operated by laparoscopy for primary ventral (n = 158) or incisional hernia (n = 55) between 2001 and 2014. Patients had a repair without fascia closure by(More)
