Placental ischemia is the background of the pathophysiology of preeclampsia. It is mainly - but not exclusively - caused by an immunological conflict between maternal NK cells of the decidua and of the uterine junctional zone, and the HLA-C antigens shared by interstitial trophoblast. The maternal disease is the consequence of the placental ischemia, and is characterized by an inflammatory syndrome with an oxidative stress and an endothelial cell dysfunction. Genetics play an essential part in each of these steps. © 2012 Elsevier Masson SAS. All rights reserved. Source

To evaluate post-operative complications and the recurrence rate after repair of large ventral incisional hernia with an open technique using intraperitoneal composite mesh and an associated aponeurotic overlay. This prospective study included a total of 280 patients who underwent repair of large incisional hernia using Parietex(®) composite mesh. The post-operative mortality rate was 0.35%. Six patients (2%) developed subcutaneous surgical site infection without infection of the prosthesis. Six other patients (2%) developed a deep-seated infection; in three cases, the mesh had to be removed. Nine patients (3.2%) developed recurrent incisional hernia. Large ventral incisional hernias can be effectively treated by the intraperitoneal placement of Parietex(®) composite mesh overlaid by an aponeurotic graft; the incidence of complications in this prospective study was very low.

The previous issue of Critical Care reports new data on renal resistive index in critically ill patients. Although high renal resistive index may indeed be associated with acute kidney injury, the existence of several determinants of this index, of which renal resistance is only one among many, obscures the usefulness of this index in clinical practice. © 2012 BioMed Central Ltd.

Like any cosmetic or any product repeatedly applied on the skin, sunscreen products may sensitize their users and cause an allergic reaction. Finding the responsible allergen implies good knowledge of what a sunscreen product is, what are the potential allergens it contains and the manifestations they may cause. Source

The mild pancreatic tumors are more and more treated by central pancreatectomy (CP) in alternative with the widened pancreatectomies. Indeed, their morbidity is lesser but they are however burdened by a rate of important postoperative fistulas. The purpose of our study is to compare pancreatico-jejunal anastomosis and pancreatico-gastric anastomosis. This work was realized in a bicentric retrospective way. Twenty-five CP were included and classified according to two groups according to the pancreatic anastomosis (group 1 for pancreatico-jejunal anastomosis and group 2 for the pancreatico-gastric anastomosis). CP was realized according to a protocol standardized in both centers and the complications were classified according to the classification of Clavien and Dindo and the fistulas according to the classification of Bassi. Both groups were comparable. The duration operating and the blood losses were equivalent in both groups. There was a significant difference (P=0,014) as regards the rate of fistula. The pancreatico-gastric anastomosis complicated more often of a low-grade fistula. However, in both groups, the treatment was mainly medical. Our results were comparable with those found in the literature and confirmed the advantages of the CP with regard to the cephalic duodeno-pancreatectomy (DPC) or to the distal pancreatectomy (DP). However, in the literature, a meta-analysis did not report difference between both types of anastomosis but this one concerned only the DPC. This work showed a less important incidence of low-grade fistula after pancreatico-jejunal anastomosis in the fall of a PM. This result should be confirmed by a later study on a more important sample of PM. Copyright © 2012 Elsevier Masson SAS. All rights reserved. Source
