BACKGROUND: The management of post-meniscectomy pain is poorly standardised. Allogeneic transplantation may be appropriate in some patients after total meniscectomy. After partial meniscectomy, the synthetic meniscal substitute Actifit may constitute a valid option if the knee is stable or stabilised and aligned or re-aligned. The interconnected pore structure of Actifit promotes tissue regeneration from the meniscal wall. Arthroscopy is used to position the implant, which is then sutured to the remaining native meniscus using horizontal stitches and to the meniscal wall using vertical stitches...

OBJECTIVE: The main objective of this study was to describe how medical students got progressively trained to perform the most frequent medical procedures in obstetrics and gynecology. The secondary objective was to rationalize and plan the training. METHODS: The medical students in our University Hospital were contacted either directly or by e-mail. They were given an anonymous simple choice questionnaire relating to eight most important acts in the specialty. RESULTS: Three hundred and eighty-two medical students have been consulted...

Pertrochanteric fractures constitute a major public health concern. This retrospective multicentric study evaluated outcome after treatment in patients aged over 75 years hospitalized for pertrochanteric fractures over a one year period (May 2004-May 2005). Five University Hospitals in the cities of Angers, Brest, Rennes, Tours, Nantes participated in this evaluation. The quality of the reduction and the position of the osteosynthesis were the two main criteria for good outcome. The type of material implanted had little effect on outcome...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the efficacy of an intracapsular ring releasing 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) in preventing posterior capsule opacification (PCO) in rabbit eyes. SETTING: Center for Research on Ocular Therapeutics and Biodevices, Storm Eye Institute, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, South Carolina, USA, and Chu Morvan, Department d'Ophtalmologie, University of Brest, France. METHODS: Seventeen rabbits were divided into 3 groups: Group 1, 6 rabbits (6 eyes), had phacoemulsification only (control group); Group 2, 6 rabbits (6 eyes), had phacoemulsification with implantation of an open-loop hydrogel intracapsular ring; Group 3, 5 rabbits (5 eyes), had phacoemulsification with implantation of a ring with sustained release of 0...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the potential of intrastromal corneal ring technology (Intacs, KeraVision) to correct keratoconus without central corneal scarring. SETTING: Department of Ophthalmology, Brest University Hospital, Brest, France. METHODS: In this prospective, noncomparative, interventional case series, Intacs segments were implanted in 10 keratoconic eyes with clear central corneas and contact lens intolerance after corneal pachymetry was checked...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the effect of intrastromal corneal ring segment (ICRS) shift on clinical outcome. SETTING: Chu Morvan Ophthalmology Service, Brest, France. METHODS: Forty-seven eyes with myopia from -1.0 to -5.0 diopters (D) had ICRS surgery according to United States Food and Drug Administration protocol using a 2-segment implant design. Visual acuity, refractive, videotopographic, and biomicroscopic results in eyes that did not have contact between segments (Group A, n = 26) and in eyes that did have contact (Group B, n = 21) were compared...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the progressive contraction of the anterior capsule opening after in-the-bag implantation of 2 types of intraocular lenses (IOLs). SETTING: Department of Ophthalmology, University of Brest, Brest, France. METHODS: In this prospective study, 32 single-piece poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) (Pharmacia 812 C) and 30 3-piece silicone IOLs with PMMA haptics (Allergan SI-40NB) were implanted in the bag after standardized phacoemulsification performed by the same surgeon...

PURPOSE: To determine whether the silicone haptic-anchor-plate mini-loop lens retains the advantages of plate and loop lenses, eliminating the risk of vitreous dislocation. SETTING: Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Brest, Service Daviel (Ophthalmologie), Hospital Augustin Morvin, Brest, France. METHODS: In a prospective study, the haptic-anchor-plate lens was implanted in the bag of 125 eyes after phacoemulsification. Postoperatively, best corrected visual acuity and induced astigmatism were measured...

A modification of an established technique to augment the breast is described. Thirty patients underwent subpectoral augmentation though a periareolar incision with a follow-up period of 10 to 16 months. The purpose was to combine the benefit of subpectoral placement (to minimize capsular contracture) with an inconspicuous scar, which usually results from the periareolar approach. Under general anesthesia a periareolar incision was used. Dissection proceeded straight down to the pectoralis muscle, which was split between its fibers to enter the areolar subpectoral plane...
