T Monchal, E Hornez, M Coisy, S Bourgouin, J de Roulhac, P Balandraud
Severe pelvic traumatisms are associated with elevated mortality because of the high risk of exsanguination from multiple sources of bleeding. Treatment should encompass resuscitation, bone stabilization and hemorrhage control by arterio-embolization or surgery. Pre-peritoneal packing has been described in hemodynamically unstable patients who need damage control. The surgical technique of this simple and effective procedure is fully described by the authors with some complementary useful technical advices.

Trans-diaphragmatic intra-thoracic extension of recurrent hepatocellular carcinoma treated by electroporation can be performed via video-assisted thoracic surgery. Resection is followed by reconstruction with a synthetic mesh.

Reports of duodenal loss of substance after laparoscopic cholecystectomy are rare. We report successful management of a large duodenal defect that occurred after cholecystectomy by endoscopic insertion of a duodenal stent and double pigtail catheters.

Wounds due to gunshot and explosions, while usually observed during battlefield combat, are no longer an exceptional occurrence in civilian practice in France. The principles of wound ballistics are based on the interaction between the projectile and the human body as well as the transfer of energy from the projectile to tissues. The treatment of ballistic wounds relies on several principles: extremity wound debridement and absence of initial closure, complementary medical treatment, routine immobilization, revision surgery and secondary closure...

G Boddaert, E Hornez, H De Lesquen, A Avramenko, B Grand, T MacBride, J-P Avaro
Resuscitation thoracotomy is a rarely performed procedure whose use, in France, remains marginal. It has five specific goals that correspond point-by-point to the causes of traumatic cardiac arrest: decompression of pericardial tamponade, control of cardiac hemorrhage, performance of internal cardiac massage, cross-clamping of the descending thoracic aorta, and control of lung injuries and other intra-thoracic hemorrhage. This approach is part of an overall Damage Control strategy, with a targeted operating time of less than 60minutes...

In terrorist attacks and industrial catastrophes, management of a massive afflux of wounded must adhere to logistic imperatives while at the same time taking into account basic traumatology principles. This implies a firm, unequivocal, and precise doctrine for all stages of care. Medical and surgical triage allows a logical classification of victims according to severity of injury, the necessity of treatment and the degree of urgency. Triage should be early, dynamic, and lead to a categorization that optimally utilizes resources while ensuring efficient management...

BACKGROUND: Recent advances in laparoscopic techniques and perioperative care have changed the indications for surgery in elderly patients. Consequently, the willingness to offer early surgery for acute cholecystitis continues to increase. This study aims to assess the perioperative outcome of early cholecystectomy for acute calculous cholecystitis in elderly patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: All consecutive patients treated by early cholecystectomy for acute calculous cholecystitis in a major teaching hospital, between January 2002 and November 2016, were retrospectively analyzed...

PURPOSE: To assess the K-ras gene mutation in the histologically negative venous margin of a pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) specimen and its impact on survival. METHOD: From 2007 to 2010, 22 patients underwent R0 PD for resecable pancreatic adenocarcinoma. All specimens were stained and the portal vein (PV) bed was identified by blue ink; a 2mm(3) sample (including the blue ink) was cut from a microscopic free-tumor block. DNA was extracted and assessed by quantitative real time polymerase chain reaction to detect the K-ras gene mutation...

Gallbladder (GB) adenomyomatosis (ADM) is a benign, acquired anomaly, characterized by hypertrophy of the mucosal epithelium that invaginates into the interstices of a thickened muscularis forming so-called Rokitansky-Aschoff sinuses. There are three forms of ADM: segmental, fundal and more rarely, diffuse. Etiology and pathogenesis are not well understood but chronic inflammation of the GB is a necessary precursor. Prevalence of ADM in cholecystectomy specimens is estimated between 1% and 9% with a balanced sex ratio; the incidence increases after the age of 50...

Splenectomy is part of the therapeutic arsenal for benign or malignant hematological disorders that constitute the main indication for elective splenectomy. With the development of minimally invasive approaches, and in particular, laparoscopy, as well as the advent of monoclonal antibody therapy, the indications and the outcomes of splenectomy for hematologic disease have changed in recent years. Nonetheless, splenectomy has its place in hemoglobinopathies and hemolytic diseases, improves thrombocytopenia in refractory immune thrombocytopenic purpura, can reverse sequelae linked to voluminous splenomegaly secondary to myelofibrosis, or can be used for diagnostic purposes or for splenomegaly in lymphoproliferative syndromes...

Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare disease with a poor prognosis. The presence of a mass syndrome or signs of hormonal hypersecretion often lead to its discovery, but more and more frequently, adrenocortical malignancy is fortuitously discovered as an incidentaloma. Cross-sectional imaging (CT and MRI) often points to the malignant character of the adrenal mass. Needle biopsy is contraindicated. Laboratory testing showing combined hypersecretion of cortisol, androgens or inactive corticosteroid precursors is highly suggestive of ACC...

BACKGROUND: The relationship between the severity assessment of acute cholecystitis based on the Tokyo Guidelines and the risk for conversion from laparoscopic surgery to open surgery has been assessed in few previous reports, with conflicting results. METHODS: A retrospective review of patients with acute cholecystitis within a single system from 2010 to 2013 was performed. The diagnosis and severity of acute cholecystitis were assigned by the Tokyo Guidelines 2013 (TG13)...

Meckel's diverticulum (MD) is the most common gastro-intestinal congenital malformation (approximately 2% in the overall population). The lifetime risk of related complications is estimated at 4%. These include gastro-intestinal bleeding, obstruction or diverticular inflammation. Diagnosis is difficult and rarely made, and imaging, especially in the case of complicated disease, is often not helpful; however exploratory laparoscopy is an important diagnostic tool. The probability of onset of complication decreases with age, and the diagnosis of MD in the adult is therefore often incidental...
