Recently, progress has been made in the surgical management of benign pancreatic tumors sparing as much of the pancreatic parenchyma and pancreatic function as possible. However, the main complication of partial pancreatectomy is the disruption of pancreatic ducts ensuing leak of pancreatic secretion leading to the formation of pancreatic fistulae. In this(More)
To assess the impact of endometriosis on obstetric outcomes and to determine whether the severity, location and surgical treatment of the disease before the pregnancy had an impact on the prevalence of these disorders, a monocentric, case-control study was performed. In total, 113 pregnancies obtained by assisted reproductive treatment among patients with(More)
A 5-cm umbilical endometriotic lesion associated with a nodule of the posterior aspect of the cervix was discovered in a 32-year-old woman who was consulting for primary infertility. Histological examination of these lesions confirmed smooth muscle hyperplasia that was infiltrated by numerous endometrial glands (adenomyosis).
Ciliary ganglion is a pre-visceral vegetative ganglion, relay of ocular bulb vegetative pathways, concerning three types of fibers: parasympathetic, sympathetic and somatosensory. The objective of this study was to describe the different patterns of distribution of those fibers around the ciliary ganglion to explain rare post-traumatic or postoperative(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare deep circumflex iliac (DCI) and deep inferior epigastric (DIE) pedicles as potential recipient vessels for a whole ovarian microvascular transplantation. DESIGN Anatomical study. SETTING Laboratory of anatomy, university center. PATIENT(S) Ten fresh human female cadavers. INTERVENTION(S) Anatomical dissections, vascular(More)
INTRODUCTION Vulvodynia is a common and debilitating disease, for which treatments are often of limits efficacy. As the Impar node receives nociceptive afferents from pelvis and perineum, it is a potential therapeutic target to treat pain in this region. The objective of the study was to evaluate the relevance of ropivacaine Impar node infiltration in(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the effect of corticosteroids combined with local anaesthetic versus local anaesthetic alone during infiltrations of the pudendal nerve for pudendal nerve entrapment. DESIGN Randomised, double-blind, controlled trial. SETTING Multicentre study. POPULATION 201 patients were included in the study, with a subgroup of 122 women. (More)
To evaluate whether deep pelvic endometriosis or endometriomas diagnosed at pelvic MRI are associated with extrapelvic bowel endometriosis (EPBE) (ileal, appendicular, or cecal involvement) in order to suggest criteria for performing an additional imaging examination dedicated to the assessment of EPBE. Ninety-six patients operated on for deep pelvic(More)
Several studies have assessed the potential role of environmental chemicals in the onset, growth, and/or physiopathology of endometriosis. However, their contour in terms of considered exposure markers remains limited. The present study aimed to characterize the internal exposure levels of 78 persistent organic pollutants (POPs, including dioxins,(More)
