Comparison of several methods for pain management after video-assisted thoracic surgery for pneumothorax: an observational study.

Pierre-Antoine Allain, Michele Carella, Apostolos C Agrafiotis, Julien Burey, Jalal Assouad, El-Mahdi Hafiani, Yacine Ynineb, Francis Bonnet, Marc Garnier, Christophe Quesnel,

BACKGROUND:There is no defined gold standard for pain management after video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) for pneumothorax. In addition to systemic analgesia, various loco-regional analgesic techniques have been proposed but remain poorly evaluated in this context. We aimed to assess the analgesic efficacy of several of these techniques for the management ... Read more >>

Postero-apical thoracic schwannoma with cervical extension resected by complete video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery.

Harry Etienne, Apostolos C Agrafiotis, Hicham Masmoudi, Jalal Assouad,

Schwannomas or neurilemmomas are benign tumors developed from the peripheral nervous system. Complete video-assisted thoracic surgery (cVATS) has set itself over the years as the preferred approach for the removal of small mediastinal neurogenic tumors. However, in case of apical location, complete VATS seems challenging because of proximity with the ... Read more >>

Treatment of solitary thyroid nodules according to size, preoperative fine-needle aspiration cytology and frozen section: a retrospective single centre study.

Apostolos C Agrafiotis, Youri Sokolow, Maria Ruiz-Patino, Nicky D'Haene, Isabelle Salmon, Bernard Corvilain, Matteo Cappello,

Background: In order to avoid unnecessary thyroidectomies, it is important to predict the nature of thyroid nodules the more accurately possible. The size of the nodule as a predictive factor for malignancy is very controversial. Another point of debate is the accuracy of preoperative fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) and frozen ...

Occurrence of thymic pathology in two families. Is familial screening justified?

Sotirios D Moraitis, Apostolos C Agrafiotis, Amalia Kapranou, Marina Constantinou, Konstantinos Kanakakis, Panagiotis Hountis,

The familial occurrence of thymic pathology, even though rare, is widely reported in the literature and mainly concerns cases of familial autoimmune myasthenia gravis. Other less frequent cases of familial occurrence of thymoma, thymic carcinoid and thymic hyperplasia have been described. It seems that the familial occurrence is poorly recorded ... Read more >>
