MALDI imaging mass spectrometry represents a new analytical tool to directly provide the spatial distribution and relative abundance of proteins in tissue. Twenty-five ovary carcinomas (stages III and IV) and 23 benign ovaries were directly analyzed using MALDI-TOF MS. The biomarker with the major prevalence (80%) has been fully identified using MALDI MS(More)
Prosthetic reinforcement in the surgical repair of pelvic prolapse by the vaginal approach is not devoid of tolerability-related problems such as vaginal erosion. The purposes of our study are to define the risk factors for exposure of the mesh material, to describe advances and to recommend a therapeutic strategy. Two hundred and seventy-seven patients(More)
OBJECTIVE We describe a new surgical technique (the vaginal plastron) for the treatment of cystocele by the vaginal route. The technique is based on bladder support by a vaginal strip (6-8cm in length and 4cm in width), isolated from the anterior colpocele, left attached to the bladder, associated with a suspension of this strip by its fixation to the(More)
AIM To study peri-surgical complications after cure of genital prolapse by vaginal route using interposition of synthetic prostheses Gynemesh Prolene Soft (Gynecare) following the Trans Vaginal Mesh (TVM) technique. METHODS The present retrospective multicentered study comprised 684 patients who underwent surgery at seven French centers between October(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the feasibility of intraoperative radioisotopic mapping using an endoscopic gamma probe associated with patent blue dye injection in patients with early stage cervical cancer. METHODS Between April 2001 and March 2002 a total of 12 patients underwent laparoscopic bilateral pelvic lymphadenectomy (squamous carcinoma in 10 cases, all(More)
BACKGROUND Cystocele is a frequent and invalidating type of genital prolapse in woman. Sacropexy using synthetic mesh is considered the surgical gold standard, and the laparoscopic approach has supplanted the open abdominal route because it offers the same anatomical results with a lower morbidity. The use of mesh through the vaginal route may have many(More)
The aim of this study is to examine the role of bacterial infection in complications following surgical management of urinary incontinence and genital prolapse using meshes. There were sixteen prostheses removed. Eight were monofilament polypropylene-knitted meshes, one was a silicone-coated polypropylene mesh, another was a collagen-coated polypropylene(More)
Villoglandular papillary adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix was recently (1989) described by three main histological features: exophytic proliferation, papillary architecture and mild to moderate cellular atypicality. The authors report a case of villoglandular papillary adenocarcinoma, clinical stage IB, which was peculiar because of its association with(More)
Cytomegalovirus (CMV) screening during pregnancy has been widely discussed for several years, but still no consensus has been agreed. With a number of live births of 750,000 per year in France, we would expect 7500 infected infants at birth per year (rate of congenital infection of 1%). Among infected infants at birth, the number of severely infected(More)
Endometriosis of the urinary tract (bladder and/or ureter) is rare and concerns 1-2% of cases of endometriosis. Surgical management is usually mandatory. Rate of peri operative morbidity is low. There is a risk of functional (dysuria, chronic hypogastric pains, imperiosity) and anatomical recurrences (0-15 and 0-10% respectively). Surgical treatment of(More)
