OBJECTIVES: The authors present the guidelines of the French Oto-Rhino-Laryngology - Head and Neck Surgery Society (Société Française d'Oto-Rhino-Laryngologie et de Chirurgie de la Face et du Cou: SFORL) on epistaxis in high blood pressure. METHODS: A multidisciplinary work group was entrusted with a review of the scientific literature on the above topic. Guidelines were drawn up, based on the articles retrieved and the group members' individual experience. They were then read over by an editorial group independent of the work group...

OBJECTIVE: The study was designed to describe the hospital incidences and annual hospitalization rates for venous thromboembolic disease by age and sex in France and the United States on the closest possible methodological bases. METHODS: French statistics are from the PMSI MCO (Programme de médicalisation des système d'information de médecine, chirurgie et obstétrique (French national hospital discharge register)) national database. These are compiled for each calendar year by collating résumé de sortie anonymisé (RSA, anonymous discharge summary) files forwarded and validated by health establishments with admissions in medicine, surgery, obstetrics, and odontology...

Botulinum Toxin A has been the main treatment for spasticity since the beginning of the 1990s. Surprisingly, there is still no consensus regarding injection parameters or, importantly, how to determine which muscles to target to improve specific functions. The aim of this study was to develop a systematic approach to determine this, using the example of the arm flexion pattern. We first determined anatomical landmarks for selective motor block of the brachialis nerve, using 20 forearms from 10 fresh cadavers in Ecole Européenne de Chirurgie and a university-based dissection centre, Paris, France...

OBJECTIVE: Providing clinical practice guidelines for first surgical treatment of female pelvic organ prolapse. METHODS: Systematic literature review, level of evidence rating, external proofreading, and grading of recommendations by 5 French academic societies: Association française d'urologie, Collège national des gynécologues et obstétriciens français, Société interdisciplinaire d'urodynamique et de pelvi-périnéologie, Société nationale française de coloproctologie, and Société de chirurgie gynécologique et pelvienne...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study is to evaluate whether a parenchymal-sparing strategy provides similar results in terms of morbidity, mortality, and oncological outcome of non-PSH hepatectomies in a propensity score matched population (PSMP) in case of multiple (>3) bilobar colorectal liver metastases (CLM). BACKGROUND: The surgical treatment of bilobar liver metastasis is challenging due to the necessity to achieve complete resection margins and a sufficient future remnant liver...

BACKGROUND: Recurrence remains frequent after curative-intent hepatectomy for colorectal liver metastases (CRLM). We sought to define short- and long-term outcomes, and identify prehepatectomy factors associated with survival, following rehepatectomy (RH) for recurrence. METHODS: We conducted a multi-institutional cohort study of hepatectomy for CRLM over 2006-2013. Second-stage resections were excluded. Primary outcomes were overall survival (OS) and recurrence-free survival (RFS) assessed using Kaplan-Meier methods...

INTRODUCTION: In cases of chronic anterior laxity, reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) can slow the development of osteoarthritis. This study was conducted to determine the overall prevalence of osteoarthritis and to identify the risk factors after ACL reconstruction. HYPOTHESIS: Meniscus tears, time from injury to surgery, body mass index (BMI), residual laxity, and cartilage lesions influence the progression towards osteoarthritis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This multicenter, retrospective study on the outcome of cruciate ligaments at 12 years of follow-up was conducted within the 2014 SOFCOT Symposium...

INTRODUCTION: Enhanced recovery after surgery programs (ERP) often lead to early discharge and return to home. In terms of risk management, extended surveillance is recommended. Surveillance using text messages (TM) has been validated for minor operations in ambulatory surgery. The goal of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of home surveillance by TM after colorectal surgery within an ERP. METHODS: This prospective multicenter study involved the University hospitals of Clermont-Ferrand, Grenoble, Marseille and Lyon Sud between November 2014 and September 2015...

AIM: To compare clinical presentation, operative management and short- and long-term outcomes of congenital bile duct cysts (BDC) in adults with children. METHODS: Retrospective multi-institutional Association Francaise de Chirurgie study of Todani types I+IVB and IVA BDC. RESULTS: During the 37-year period to 2011, 33 centers included 314 patients (98 children; 216 adults). The adult population included more high-risk patients, with more active, more frequent prior treatment (47...

BACKGROUND: Data on recurrence patterns following hepatectomy for colorectal liver metastases (CRLMs) and their impact on long-term outcomes are limited in the setting of modern multimodal management. This study sought to characterize the patterns of, factors associated with, and survival impact of recurrence following initial hepatectomy for CRLMs. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study of patients undergoing initial hepatectomy for CRLMs at 39 institutions (2006-2013) was conducted...

BACKGROUND: Liver resection is the most effective treatment for intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma. Recurrent disease is frequent; however, recurrence patterns are ill-defined and prognostic models are lacking. STUDY DESIGN: A primary cohort of 189 patients who underwent resection for intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma was used for recurrence patterns analysis within and after 24 months. Based on independent factors for disease-free survival identified in Cox regression analysis, preoperative and postoperative models were developed using a recursive partitioning method...

BACKGROUND: Despite widespread use of ceramic-on-ceramic (CoC) in total hip arthroplasty (THA) during the past 10 years, little is known about why revisions are performed in hips with this bearing or the time elapsed before revision. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: The purposes of this study were: (1) Do the reasons for first revision differ between CoC bearings and other bearing couples? (2) Does the time to revision differ between CoC and other bearing couples? (3) Are there unique reasons for revisions of CoC bearings? METHODS: All members of the Société Française de Chirurgie Orthopédique et Traumatologique (SoFCOT) who performed ≥ 30 revisions per year were invited to participate in this multicenter, prospective, observational study...

Introduction: With this online survey, data on surgical interventions on the external female genitalia in Switzerland, differentiated according to functional, aesthetic and psychological reasons, were collected for the first time. Materials and Methods: In September 2013 an invitation to respond to the quantitative and qualitative questions of a comprehensive, anonymous online survey was sent by e-mail to a total of 1740 members of the Swiss Society of Gynaecology and Obstetrics (Schweizerische Gesellschaft für Gynäkologie und Geburtshilfe) and the Swiss Society of Plastic Surgery (Schweizerische Gesellschaft für Plastische Chirurgie)...

INTRODUCTION: Complex 4-part fractures of the proximal humerus are one of the most difficult fractures to manage. For several years, reverse total arthroplasty (RSA) has been proposed as an alternative to hemiarthroplasty (HA) when internal fixation is insufficient. The goal of this study was to compare the short and intermediate term results of these 2 different types of arthroplasty. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In a retrospective, multicenter study, 57 HA and 41 RSA were reviewed after a follow-up of at least 2 years...
