OBJECTIFS: La coarctation de l'aorte représente environ 7 % des malformations cardiaques congénitales, associée dans 50 % des cas à une bicuspidie aortique ; diagnostiquée le plus souvent chez l'enfant, rarement à l'âge adulte à l'occasion d'une complication. Le but de notre étude est de montrer l'apport du traitement endovasculaire dans la prise en charge des coarctations aortiques chez l'adulte, et d'évaluer les résultats à court, moyen et long terme. MéTHODES: Étude mono-centrique prospective, non randomisée sur 28 mois, allant de mars 2013 à juillet 2015, portant sur 15 cas, traités pour coarctation de l'aorte découverte à l'âge adulte, dont l'âge moyen était de 37,3ans, avec des extrêmes allant de 15ans à 50ans, et un Sex-ratio de 1/1...

This study was designed to itemize and analyze the classification of fracture types and their corresponding outcomes in an attempt to provide a better understanding of the current treatment methods. Two PubMed searches were performed using the words "periprosthetic distal femur fracture" and "periprosthetic supracondylar femur fracture" in studies that were published in the previous 10 years (2004-2014). Data from 41 articlesthat met the general inclusion criteria, were collected and categorized into fracture type and treatment method groupings...

INTRODUCTION: The composition of a French Forward Surgical Team (FST) has remained constant since its creation in the early 1950s: 12 personnel, including a general and an orthopaedic surgeon. The training of military surgeons, however, has had to evolve to adapt to the growing complexities of modern warfare injuries in the context of increasing subspecialisation within surgery. The Advanced Course for Deployment Surgery (ACDS)-called Cours Avancé de Chirurgie en Mission Extérieure (CACHIRMEX)-has been designed to extend, reinforce and adapt the surgical skill set of the FST that will be deployed...

PURPOSE: Improved survival of combat casualties in modern conflicts is especially due to early access to damage control resuscitation and surgery in forward surgical facilities. In the French Army, these small mobile units are staffed with one general surgeon and one orthopaedic surgeon who must be able to perform any kind of trauma or non trauma emergency surgery. METHODS: This concept of forward surgery requires a solid foundation in general surgery which is no longer provided by the current surgical programs due to an early specialization of the residents...

Post operative infection in spine surgery is a well known complication. The authors studied a series of 90 patients in accordance with an homogenous strategy based on the excision of necrotic and infected tissues, associated with appropriate antibiotics.The results are analyzed according to the degree of infection (which is based on the type of germs and their associations), and type of patients, the delay in diagnosis and the anatomical extension of the infected lesions.Making a difference between superficial and deep infection is of no therapeutic value and may lead to wrong and inadequate treatment...

BACKGROUND: Acute care surgery (ACS) comprises trauma and emergency surgery. The purpose of this new specialty is to involve trauma and nontrauma surgeons in the care of acutely ill patients with a surgical pathology. In Quebec, few acute care surgery services (ACSS) exist, and the concept is still poorly understood by most general surgeons. This survey was meant to determine the opinions and interest of Quebec general surgeons in this new model. METHODS: We created a bilingual electronic survey using a Web interface and sent it by email to all surgeons registered with the Association québécoise de chirurgie...

In France, acute life-threatening situations are handled by the French Secours a Personne (assistance to persons) and emergency medical facilities. An unequivocal success, this early management of life-threatening emergency situations relies upon centralized call reception, medical dispatching, and immediate on-site emergency medical care. We describe the different emergency care providers and steps involved in the response to emergency situations. Each call centre (Samu, phone number 15; Sapeurs-Pompiers, 18) provides a response tailored to the nature of incoming calls for assistance...

Competency-based medical education is a prerequisite to prepare students for the medical profession. A mandatory professional qualification framework is a milestone towards this aim. The National Competency-based Catalogue of Learning Objectives for Undergraduate Medical Education (NKLM) of the German Medical Faculty Association (MFT) and the German Medical Association will constitute a basis for a core curriculum of undergraduate medical training. The Surgical Working Group on Medical Education (CAL) of the German Association of Surgeons (DGCH) aims at formulating a competency-based catalogue of learning objectives for surgical undergraduate training to bridge the gap between the NKLM and the learning objectives of individual medical faculties...

Within a few months of Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen's discovery of x-rays in 1895, Fedor Krause acquired an x-ray apparatus and began to use it in his daily interactions with patients and for diagnosis. He was the first neurosurgeon to use x-rays methodically and systematically. In 1908 Krause published the first volume of text on neurosurgery, Chirurgie des Gehirns und Rückenmarks (Surgery of the Brain and Spinal Cord), which was translated into English in 1909. The second volume followed in 1911. This was the first published multivolume text totally devoted to neurosurgery...

The "peer-review" of scientific manuscripts is an honorable and important task to optimize the quality of a medical journal. The reviewer has the following 2 tasks: first, to provide to the editor an overall assessment of the manuscript and make a recommendation regarding the acceptance, revision or rejection of a scientific manuscript. Second, to supply the authors with objective and constructive criticism and also with detailed suggestions for improvement of a manuscript -aiming to improve its scientific quality...

Evaluation of the patient's medical history and a physical examination are the cornerstones of risk assessment prior to elective surgery and may help to optimize the patient's preoperative medical condition and to guide perioperative management. Whether the performance of additional technical tests (e.g. blood chemistry, ECG, spirometry, chest-x-ray) can contribute to a reduction of perioperative risk is often not very well known or controversial. Similarly, there is considerable uncertainty among anesthesiologists, internists and surgeons with respect to the perioperative management of the patient's long-term medication...

BIOGRAPHY: Baron Dominique Jean Larrev was a French army surgeon who rose to become a surgeon-in-chief of Napoleon's Grande Armée. Many advances in the field of surgery have been attributed to him: he was one of the first to amputate at the hip-joint (1812); he pioneered the use of maggots to prevent infection in wounds; he gave the first description of a trench foot, and originated the first aid to combatants by getting stretcher-bearers to take wounded men immediately from the battlefield. EDUCATION AND CAREER: Larrey studied medicine in Paris and spent a short time in the navy before resuming his studies at the Parisian College de Chirurgie...

This review recalls the first presentation of a modified method for the use of iodine tincture in preoperative disinfection of skin and minor injuries by the Rijeka physician Antonio Grossich (1849-1926), which was published in "Zentralblatt für Chirurgie" 100 years ago. It did not have to wait long before it received acclaim from 20 other medical journals, and in 1909, from the audience at the International Surgery Congress held in Budapest for an extended presentation on the subject. In the following 2 years, surgeons all over the world published their experiences with this optimised technique in over a hundred journals...

BACKGROUND: During undergraduate medical education, the trainee should not only gain theoretical knowledge but also acquire essential skills. Several studies have demonstrated that practical training can be improved. However, only single training concepts for solitary skills have been developed and evaluated. This work presents a training programme for basic surgical skills. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A one-week training of practical skills has been integrated into the obligatory four-week surgical course...

The Roux-en-Y type of gastrointestinal anastomosis, originated by the Swiss surgeon César Roux, is a valuable technique used in drainage of the stomach, esophagus, and the pancreatico-biliary tree. It is now frequently used in reconstructing the GI tract after resections for a number of diseases, and known by the general public due to its importance in bariatric surgery. This article presents, along with a brief biographical sketch, an English translation and discussion of Roux's original 1893 French report on gastrointestinal surgery that was published in Revue de Chirurgie...

The history of this oldest among German surgical journals, in the second half of the twentieth century, is outlined from an editor's point of view. In this period, the journal mutated from a conservative refuge for lengthy theses to an innovative peer-review organ. Apart from original research and clinical reports, the journal now ran regular editorials, discussion panels and sections on Current Operative Techniques as well as Clinical Anatomy and finally developed into an English-language publication. This half-century of surgical progress-second to none in the history of surgery-is of course reflected in the contents of the journal...
