Surgical Science (SS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ss.2015.610062
Abstract: Internal jugular vein (IJV) ectasia is a rare benign disease. It commonly presents as a unilateral, soft, compressible neck swelling that mostly involves the right side. It is usually a childhood disease and believed to be of congenital origin. Accurate diagnosis from careful history, physical examination and radiological study can be made. We report here two cases of IJV ectasia in African adults with right lateral neck mass dilating when increase intrathoracic pressure. Because of its rarity, this entity is frequently ignored or misdiagnosed. This case report intends to stress the importance of keeping IJV ectasia as differential diagnosis in mind in case of lateral neck swellings to avoid invasive investigations and inappropriate treatment. The asymptomatic case management of IJV ectasia is conservative with long-term surveillance.

African Journal of Laboratory Medicine , 2013, DOI: 10.4102/ajlm.v2i1.81
Abstract: Background: Resistance of malaria parasites to existing drugs complicates treatment, but an antimalarial vaccine that could protect against this disease is not yet available. It is therefore necessary to find new effective and affordable medicines. Medicinal plants could be a potential source of antimalarial agents. Some medicinal plants from Burkina Faso were evaluated for their antiplasmodial and cytotoxic properties in vitro. Methods: Crude dichloromethane, methanol, water-methanol, aqueous and alkaloids extracts were prepared for 12 parts of 10 plants. Chloroquine-resistant malaria strain K1 was used for the in vitro sensibility assay. The Plasmodium lactacte dehydrogenase technique was used to determine the 50% inhibitory concentration of parasites activity (IC50). The cytotoxic effects were determined with HepG2 cells, using the tetrazolium-based colorimetric technique, and the selectivity index (SI) was calculated. Results: Sixty crude extracts were prepared. Seven extracts from Terminalia avicenoides showed IC50 < 5 μg/mL. The IC50 of dichloromethane, methanol, aqueous and alkaloids extracts ranged between 1.6 μg/mL and 4.5 μg/mL. Three crude extracts from Combretum collinum and three from Ficus capraefolia had an IC50 ranging between 0.2 μg/mL and 2.5 μg/mL. Crude extracts from these three plants had no cytotoxic effect, with SI > 1. The other plants have mostly moderate or no antimalarial effects. Some extracts from Cordia myxa, Ficus capraefolia and Opilia celtidifolia showed cytotoxicity, with an SI ranging between 0.4 and 0.9. Conclusion: Our study showed a good antiplasmodial in vitro activity of Terminalia avicenoides, Combretum collinum and Ficus capraefolia. These three plants may contain antiplasmodial molecules that could be isolated by bio-guided phytochemical studies.

Surgical Science (SS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ss.2015.612075
Abstract: Introduction: Total thyroidectomy is an operation that involves the surgical removal of the whole thyroid gland, with the preservation of the parathyroid glands. The aim of the present study was to assess the complication rates of total thyroidectomy on benign indication and first-time thyroid surgery and investigate the early outcome after opotherapy. Materials and Methods: In this retrospective study, patients who underwent total thyroidectomy for benign multinodular goiter in the department of thoracic surgery in our Hospital from January 2012 to December 2014 were included. In postoperative time, we evaluated surgical complication, histopathological examination and opotherapy. Results: A total 53 patients underwent total thyroidectomy for multmodular goiter; they were 49 (92.45%) bilateral and 4 (7.55%) unilateral (recurrence). The mean age was 47 years and mean diameter of goiter was 10.75 cm. Among the patients 88.68% were females and 11.32% were male. Preoperative hormonal statuses were (70%) in euthyroid and (30%) hyperthyroid following surgery complications like transient laryngeal nerve palsy (3.77%), transient hypocalcemia (7.55%), hematoma (1.9%) and wound infection (1.9%). On histopathological examination of the surgical specimen, 5.7% were reported to be malignant. Six month following surgery 92.45% of patients was a good hormonal balance. Conclusion: Total thyroidectomy for multinodular goiter has a low morbidity and mortality; this procedure olves both the problem of recurrence of disease and reintervention. The opotherapy is doable with a good hormonal balance.

Abstract: Intracranial hematomas, whatever its causes, represent an important disabling, and dreaded adult’s lesion. This brain’s condition has not well been studied in developing countries. The aim of our study is to overview the management of intracaranial hematomas in Abidjan. It is a retrospective analytical and descriptive study, involving patients who had been admitted and monitored by neurosurgeons for intracranial hematomas, documented in brain CT scan and had been operated on from 1 January 2007 to December 31, 2009 in Abidjan. These 30 patients were 23 men and 7 women. The average age was 58.6 years old. 90% of the patients were admitted with wakefulness issues. Half had a Glasgow score of less than 8. The brain scanner allowed identification of an intraparenchymal hematoma associated or not with a cerebral ventricle contamination in 28 patients. There were 18 external ventricle derivations with or without decompressive craniectomy and 12 independent decompressive craniectomy. The evolution was marked by 20 deaths. 10 patients (33.3%) survived. Among the survivors, the first attack and arterial hypertension were the only illness before the attack. None had blood in the membranes and all had Glasgow scores greater than or equal to 9 at admission. Around 7 out of 10 patients were operated on during the first 48 hours. The operative indications of intracranial hematomas are still the subject of controversy. By basing itself on criteria and rigorous clinical and neuroimaging selection, surgery could eventually contribute to the management of this pathology which has become very frequent in Africa.

Abstract: The purpose of this study was to study the frequency of premature division of the inferior laryngeal nerve and its consequences in thyroid surgery. Methodology: We realized a forward-looking and retrospective study from January, 1979 till December, 2017 in the service of surgery B to the University hospital of the Point G of Bamako and in the service of ENT and cervico-facial surgery of the CHU “mother-child”, the Luxembourg of Bamako (Mali). All the patients operated in both services for mild goiters were included. Cancers and other thyroid pathologies were not included. The diagnosis of mild goiter was paused by the histological examination realized on all the surgical specimens. Results: On 2109 dissections of the lower laryngeal nerve realized during the surgical operations on the thyroid 95.1% of the cases, the nerve had a single branch; in 4.1% of the cases, the nerve had two branches; and in 0.8% of the cases, the nerve had more than 2 branches. Conclusion: The complications of the thyroid surgery in touch with the hurts of the lower laryngeal nerve are known. However, our study shows that these do not seem to be influenced by the premature division of the lower laryngeal nerve.

Modern Economy (ME) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/me.2012.33043
Abstract: The purpose of the present study is to analyze the public expenditure contribution to the improvement of the profitable economic growth to the poor in Cote d’Ivoire. The paper tried to show out the explanatory power of the government actions concerning the poor populations’ well-being. This reflection is based on a micro simulated general equilibrium analysis with the data provided by the national institute of the statistical (INS). These data are obtained from the investigations achieved on the households’ level of the lives. The results of the study suggest that the Ivorian authorities contributed meaningfully to the reduction of poverty severity. In other words, the poor benefited from fruits of the economic growth induced by the public investments.

Surgical Science (SS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ss.2015.612077
Abstract: Drainage by chest tube thoracostomy is widely used in treatment of early empyema thoracis in children, but drainage with antiseptic lavage-irrigation is more frequent in our context since the last 20 years. This study was to determine which was more effective in our experience comparing chest tube drainage with catheter antiseptic lavage-irrigation versus drainage by chest tube thoracostomy alone in the management of empyema thoracis in children. Patients and Methods: Demographic, clinical and microbiological data on children with thoracic empyema undergoing drainage by chest tube thoracostomy alone or with antiseptic lavage-irrigation were obtained from 2 thoracic surgical centers from September 2008 to December 2014. It was a retrospective study included 246 children (137 boys and 109 girls) who were managed for empyema thoracis at the author’s different department of surgery. Outcomes analysis with respect to treatment efficacy, hospital duration, chest tube duration, hospital costs, and need for subsequent procedures was analyzed and compared in the 2 groups. Results: Drainage of pus and antiseptic irrigation resulted in resolution of pyrexia with improvement in general condition in 85.82% of patients in group 1 and by tube thoracostomy alone in 73.95% in group 2. There are a significant difference in the length of hospital stay (p = 0.022), duration of chest tubes in situ (p = 0.040), treatment coast (p = 0.015) and outcome of stage 2 empyema disease (p = 0.037) between the 2 groups. Conclusion: it seems that chest tube drainage with antiseptic lavage-irrigation method is associated with a higher efficacy, shorter length of hospital stay, shorter duration of chest tube in situ, less cost and better outcome of stage 2 empyema diseases than a treatment strategy that utilizes chest tube thoracostomy alone.

Abstract: Aim: This study aimed at describing the anatomical variations of the external branch of the superior laryngeal nerve and at estimating the frequency of nerves at risk during the thyroid surgery. Methodology: We realized a forward-looking study from September, 2016 in May 31st, 2018 in the laboratory of anatomy of the Faculty of Medicine and Odontostomatology of Bamako in Mali. All the fresh anatomical subjects not carrying trauma and or a scar at the level of the previous region of the neck were held. The anatomical subjects were not included presenting a traumatic lesion and\or a scar of the previous region of the neck. Results: We realized 34 dissections of the external branch of the superior laryngeal nerve to 17 deathly subjects (11 men and 6 women with a sex-ratio of 1.8). The average age of the subjects was of 42 years (extremes: 18 and 70 years). Our study allowed highlighting in 100% of the cases, the external branch of the superior laryngeal nerve and the superior thyroid artery so to the right as to the left. On 34 dissected external branch of the superior laryngeal nerve, none had a previous route. However we found 28 nerves (82.4%) having a later route, stuck to the external face of the lower constrictor of the pharynx. These were not mixed with the superior thyroid artery and its branch of division and were situated outside the thyroid capsule. In 17.6% of the cases (6 cases), the nerve had a route mixed in the branch of the superior thyroid artery. These were found inside of the capsule (11.8% adhered to the artery and 5.8% crossed its branch of division). Conclusion: The risk of injury of the external laryngeal nerve during thyroid surgery procedure is never zero. It is more important on the left side.

Surgical Science (SS) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ss.2018.911050
Abstract: In 7 years, we brought together 100 cases of volvulus of the colon sigmoid to the hospital Sominé Dolo of Mopti among which the handle volvule was found without necrosis in 66 cases and necrosis 34 cases. Seventy-six patients benefited from a sigmoidectomy followed by a colorectal anatomize at a time, twenty one patients of an intervention of Hartmann. A surgical distortion was realized at 3 patients. All the patients operated by these last two techniques had a restoring of the digestive continuity for an average deadline of 90 days. The post-operative complications consisted of 11 cases of parietal suppuration and a case of evisceration. The average duration of follow-up was of 210 days. The post-operative mortality was 14%. It was about a state of toxic shock with visceral multi-failure (n = 13), and of a pulmonary embolism (n = 1). The treatment of the volvulus requires a fast diagnostic and therapeutic coverage. The best treatment consists of a resection of the sigmoid as a matter of urgency followed by an immediate anastomosis if the following conditions are carried achieved: state general voucher, experimented surgeon and if the resuscitation meadow, per and post-operative can be assured.

Abstract: The objective was to study epidemiological and therapeutic aspects of the inguinal hernia according to the technique of Shouldice. Methodology: we realized a retrospective study, concerning the patients operated for inguinal hernia according to the technique of Shouldice in the service of general surgery of the hospital Sominé Dolo of Mopti, Mali. All the patients operated during the period of study for inguinal hernia according to the technique of Shouldice were included. The patients operated for hernia by other technique than that of Shouldice were not included. Results: The study has been realized in the service of general surgery of the hospital Sominé Dolo of Mopti (Mali). It was about a retrospective study which concerned 25 years from January, 1987 till December, 2012. 675 patients operated according to the technique of Shouldice were registered. The average age was of 49 years +/17.7. There were 90.7% (612) men. The sex-ratio is 9.7. The farmers, the housewives and the workers represented 51.1% (115). In 75.2% (508) the patients consulted for inguinal tumefaction. In operating meadow, the hernia was complicated to 246 (36.4%) patients among whom 72 cases were of recurrence. The hernia constriction was the main complication operating meadow 58.5% (48/82). The operating suites in one year were simple at 94.2% (636) of the patients; they were marked by 24 cases of recurrence, 12 cases of neuralgia, 6 cases of testicular atrophy, and 3 cases of keloid. Conclusion: The technique of Shouldice is the technique of choice for the cure of the inguinal hernia in developing countries because of the good result and its little expensive cost with compared with the other techniques using medical devices.
