For patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma, lymph node involvement is a common complication, resulting in node dissection and its resulting morbidity. To determine means of limiting lymph node dissections, we attempted to define intra-operative criteria predictive of node metastasis and so identify the patients likely to benefit from this procedure.

Retrospective study of a series of 30 patients (mean age: 25.5 years), including 8 children with severe duodenopancreatic trauma, treated over a period of 15 years. This series consisted of 14 cases of duodenal perforation, 3 cases of duodenal haematoma, 11 cases of isolated pancreatic lesions (including 5 isthmic ruptures) and 2 cases of associated(More)
We report one case of unrecognized primary liver tumor revealed by intra biliary system migration of free floating debris and hemobilia. A 64-year-old man presented an isolated jaundice. Ultrasound, computed tomography and percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography are suggestive a cholangiocarcinoma. Operative intervention demonstrated hepatocellular emboli(More)
BACKGROUND One of the main problems in the management and treatment of intraductal papillary-mucinous tumors is the lack of a reliable predictive factor for malignancy. HYPOTHESIS Surgical treatment could be adapted to macroscopic criteria (presence of mural nodules and diameter of the pancreatic duct and of the lesion) or to tumor location (main duct,(More)
Rectoceles are best repaired via a perineal approach. The transperineovaginal approach provides access to the outer side of the rectocele: the rectal hernia is repaired with two or three purse-string sutures and suture of the rectal fascia. Levatorplasty, performed without narrowing of the vagina, reinforces the repair and strengthens the lax pelvic floor.(More)
A 21-year-old woman suffering from abdominal pain and a fever of 39 degrees C was hospitalized. Ultrasonography and computed tomographic scan showed a large amount of ascites and one hepatic node. The serum CA 125 level was elevated. Protein Chain Reaction (PCR) searching tuberculosis antigen in ascitic fluid was normal. A diagnosis of peritoneal(More)
