Background: In sub Saharan Africa, small size surveys have demonstrated early high mortality among infected patients on antiretroviral therapies (ART). Few studies have been conducted in large cohorts of HIV-patients in public health care system in West Africa. Objectives: Our study aims to determine mortality rate and its predictors in a cohort of patients on ART in a public daycare hospital in Burkina Faso. Methods: We have carried out a retrospective cohort study. All HIV-infected patients on ART between January 1st 2008 and December 31st 2011 were included in the study. Survival probability was estimated by the Kaplan-Meier method. Cox regression analysis was used to identify associated factors to mortality. Results: A total of 2243 HIV-infected patients were included in the study. During the follow-up, 218 patients representing 9.7% were lost. About 104 patients representing 4.6% were transferred and 1691 representing 75.4% were still in the therapeutic cohort. There were 230 death cases for a total of 4282 persons-years, (5.4 deaths for 100 persons-years; 95% CI: 4.8

Abstract: Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy is an excellent way for the diagnosis of high digestive pathology. We report the results of 1022 upper gastrointestinal endoscopy performed at Bobo-Dioulasso CHU-SS, in western Burkina Faso (West Africa). The aim of this study was to document the indications and lesions found in high endoscopy at the CHUSS. Patients and Methods: It was a cross-sectional study, prospective to describe the results of gastroscopy performed from 1st January 2015 to 30th June 2016 at the digestive endoscopy unit CHU-Souro Sanou Bobo-Dioulasso. Results: In the study period, 1022 upper gastrointestinal endoscopies were performed. The main indications were: The epigastric pain (48.6%), portal hypertension (10.7%) and gastroesophageal reflux disease (9.9%). The pathologies observed were dominated by gastropathies (48.11%), peptic ulcer (27%) and oesophageal varices (9.68%). Epigastralgias were the main circumstance for the discovery of: 52.3% of esophagitis, 49.17% of gastropathies and 46.12% of peptic ulcers. Histopathologically, the results of the 236 biopsies were dominated by gastritis (88.56%), stomach cancers (7.63%) and esophagus (3.81%). Conclusion: The main indication of the UGIE at the CHU-Souro Sanou in Bobo-Dioulasso was epigastralgia. The pathologies observed were dominated by gastropathy, esophagitis and PUD.

Abstract: Background. Sentinel node biopsy is a promising diagnostic staging procedure for vulvar carcinoma and it decreases postoperative morbidity. However, it has not been yet approved as a standard procedure. Patients and methods. From March 2003 to the end of 2006, 35 patients were treated for vulvar carcinoma with the technique of sentinel lymph node dissection. Mean age of the patient was 65.8 years (range 36-88 years). There had 32 patients squamous cell carcinoma, one malignant melanoma, one basal cell carcinoma, and one adeno-squamous cell carcinoma. Before surgery, sentinel node biopsy was made with performing 99mTc static and dynamic lymphoscintigraphy and with intradermal injection of methylene blue dye. Results. With this method we haven't found metastases in 25 patients (71.4%). In 3 cases, we failed and found groin recurrence after 12, 24 and 26 months, respectively. In the first, the reason was probably lack of experience, in the second case, we couldn't detect the second active node seen on the lymphographic scan, and in the third case, the reason was a prior surgical procedure and a scar in the groin region. In the group of SNB negative 22 patients were alive at the end of the year 2007 with no evidence of disease, one died after 45 months (groin recurrence), another one died of other causes. For one patient there is no current data. Patient with melanoma malignum is alive with liver metastases. Conclusions. In order to recognize the value of the obtained knowledge about the new treatment method and to confirm the efficiency or inefficiency of this method, further multicenter research studies need to be performed on larger randomized groups of patients.
