OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the feasibility and the mid-term results of subintimal angioplasty (SA) in the treatment of critical limb ischaemia (CLI) with tibial vessels occlusions. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between August 2000 and March 2005, we attempted to treat 46 patients (23 men, 23 women, median age of 75 years; range 35-92) and 50 limbs by SA of occluded tibial vessels. Twenty-one had gangrene, 25 ulcerations and 4 had rest pain. Thirty-nine occlusions (78%) were more than 10 cm in length, 28 (56%) involved popliteal and tibial artery and distal re-entry was at the ankle level in 18 cases (36%)...

The objective of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of cryopreserved arterial homografts for management of prosthetic graft infection. Between October 1992 and July 1998, 90 patients (84 men) with a mean age of 64 years from six different hospitals were treated for prosthesis infection by in situ replacement using a cryopreserved arterial homograft (CAH). In 43 patients (47%), the primary procedure had been performed at a nonparticipating center. Prosthetic graft infection occurred early (i.e., within 1 month after the primary procedure) in 15 cases and late in 75 cases...

OBJECTIVES: to evaluate the feasibility and preliminary results at 1 year of subintimal angioplasty of tibial occlusions in critical limb ischaemia (CLI). MATERIAL: from December 1997 to December 1999, we intended to treat 36 patients and 40 limbs by subintimal angioplasty of occlusions of tibial vessels. Thirty-one had gangrene or ulceration and nine had rest pain. Twenty-seven occlusions were more than 10 cm, 10 were 5 to 10 cm and three were less than 5 cm in length...

Leukotrienes constitute a class of potent biological mediators of inflammation and anaphylaxis. However, their routine assay in various biological fluids is restricted by the complexity of the methodology. Previously this could only be performed by research laboratories with high pressure liquid chromatography and radioimmunological capabilities. The recent availability of kits for immunoenzymatic assay of leukotrienes offers a new tool for clinical laboratories provided the limitations of the method are understood...

A prospective trial was conducted in 129 recipients of primary liver transplantation, to compare induction immunosuppression using triple drug therapy (cyclosporine, steroids, and azathioprine; group 1, n = 42), versus triple drug therapy with a 10-day course of OKT3 (group 2, n = 44) or of the anti-interleukin-2 receptor monoclonal antibody LO-Tact-1 (group 3, n = 43). Two-year actual patient survival rates were 64%, 79%, and 93% in groups 1, 2, and 3, respectively (1 vs. 2, NS; I vs. III, P = 0.003; 2 vs...

A prospective trial was conducted to assess the efficacy of induction immunosuppression with antilymphocyte monoclonal antibodies in 129 primary liver transplant patients who were randomly divided into three groups according to immunosuppression during the first 10 days post-OLT: triple drug therapy only (TDIS: cyclosporine, steroids, azathioprine) (group I: n = 42); TDIS with a 10-day course of OKT3 (group II: n = 44); and LO-Tact-1 (anti-IL-2 receptor mAb) (group III: n = 43). Biopsy-proved acute rejection (AR) was treated using the same biopsy-guided protocol in the 3 groups...

We report a new case of S.C.C. of the large bowel with multiple liver metastases. A resection of the primary tumour and liver biopsies were performed with administration of a postoperative chemotherapy (5-Fluorouracil). After a stabilization of 3 months, the metastases were rapidly progressive and the patient died a year after the diagnosis. About 70 cases of S.C.C. of the colon and rectum have been described in the literature. It is most common in the fifth decade and occurs equally in male and female. The most frequent locations are the rectum and the sigmoid...

Thirty cases of superficial cancer of the stomach were treated over a ten-year period from 1984 to 1993. Actuarial survival rate at 5 years was 73%. The depth of cancer invasion has a predominant effect on two prognosis factors: mucosal and submucosal involvement. Invasion of the lymph nodes is more frequent in cases with submucosal invasion. Treatment is based on gastric surgery. Nevertheless, if the diagnosis of superficial cancer is certain before operation and deep extension is clearly identified by histology and especially by echoendoscopy, more selective surgery could be justified: R1 type exeresis for cancers involving the mucosa only and R2 type exeresis for submucosal involvement...

The influence of ABO-compatibility was reviewed in 70 emergency orthotopic hepatic transplantations (OHT) performed at our institution in 60 highly urgent recipients between February 1984 and March 1989. Thirty-eight were ABO-identical (Id); 16, compatible (Comp), and 16, incompatible (Inc) transplants, respectively. The three groups did not differ statistically with respect to the indications, the adult/child ratio and the proportions of first OHT and retransplantations. Graft survival rates of ABO-Id, ABO-Comp and ABO-Inc OHT at one year were 47, 38 and 19 per cent, respectively (p less than 0...
