Souleymane Ouedraogo, Salam Ouedraogo, Jean-Luc Kambire, Mamadou Windsouri, Mamadou T. Traore, Maurice Zida, , Si Simon Traore
Surgical Science (SS) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ss.2017.810050
Abstract: Background: The purpose of this study was to describe the etiologic factors and therapeutic modalities of incisional hernias in the department of surgery at the regional hospital of Tenkodogo, in Burkina Faso. Methods: It is a cross sectional study covering the period from 2010 to 2012. Sampling was comprehensive, including all the patients operated for incisional hernias during this period. Results: Fifty-four patients were included. Their average age was 22.3 years. There were 35 (64.8%) males and 19 (35.2%) female patients. We counted 28 large-size incisional hernias, 14 medium-size incisional hernias and 12 incisional hernias of small size. The average time from the first surgery to the diagnosis of incisional hernias was 8 months. Generalized acute peritonitis (44.4%) and acute intestinal obstructions (22.2%) were the main indications of initial surgical interventions. Vertical midline incisions have been involved in 37 cases (68.5%). Therapeutically, two surgical techniques have been used: open suture repair and open mesh repair. Forty-two patients (77.8%) were treated by open suture repair. Twelve patients (22.2%) benefited from open mesh repair. Post-operative complications were noted in 2 patients. Nine patients (16.7%) presented a recurrence after 12 months. Conclusion: In the rural area of Burkina Faso, incisional hernias occur in young patients. Emergencies with abdominal Infections are the main operative indications. Prostheses are relatively high cost and less accessible. The recidivism rate is high.

Surgical Science (SS) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ss.2017.811053
Abstract: Introduction: Cattle are strong animals very often used in agriculture in rural Africa. Unpredictable in their behavior, they regularly inflict injuries to farmers, some of whom are children in rural Africa. Objective: The purpose of this study was to describe the clinical, therapeutic and evolutionary aspects of abdominal trauma caused by bovidae to children on farms in Burkina Faso. Patients and Method: This is a descriptive study covering the period from January 2014 through December 2016 and was conducted in the General Surgery Unit of the Tenkodogo Regional Hospital in Burkina Faso. It included all patients under the age of 17, victims of abdominal trauma by cattle on farms. Result: A total of 68 patients were identified, which is 3% of all patients under 17 admitted to the service during the same period. The average age of patients was 10.5 years, with a standard variation of 3.6 years. The majority (73.5%) of the patients were boys. The main lesional mechanisms found were horn strokes (88.2%). We noted 35 eviscerations without visceral perforation, 15 intestinal perforations, 6 hepatic wounds and 5 splenic wounds. In 7 cases, there were non-penetrating wounds. All patients underwent surgical intervention under anesthesia. The average length of hospital was 6 days. Two deaths were recorded, making a mortality rate of 3%. Conclusion: Abdominal traumas of the child by attack of cattle are frequent during farm works in rural Burkina Faso. The injuries are sometimes serious. Wearing protective equipment for children should be considered during farm work.

Open Journal of Urology (OJU) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/oju.2015.512035
Abstract: Introduction: Testicular seminoma is a highly lymphophilic germ cell tumor. It is the most common germ cell tumor in young adults. We are reporting one case of testicular seminoma complicated with an acute generalized peritonitis (AGP), in order to describe the circumstances of diagnosis and discuss about treatment. Observation: It involved a 39-year-old patient, admitted for vague abdominal pains that were evolving since 72 hours with a history of right orchiectomy because of testicular seminoma in 2011. The analysis revealed a peritoneal syndrome, a right inguinal lymphadenopathy of 10 cm diameter and an empty right scrotum. The exploration revealed fistulized necrotic retro-peritoneal lymphadenopathies in the peritoneal cavity and ileal perforation on contact with these lymphadenopathies. Necrosectomy and ileal resections were performed. After the operation, the scanner revealed a conglomeration of retro-peritoneal adenomegalies extending to the right femoral region associated with bilateral pleurisy. The β-HCG and the LDH were 8000 IU/L and 24,500 IU/L, respectively. The seminoma was ranked T3N3M1. The immediate post-operative care was uneventful. The patient was lost from sight for a month and was readmitted in a context of alteration of his general condition. He died before the end of the pre-chemotherapeutic assessment. Conclusion: Scrotal mass is the usual way of revelation of testicular seminoma. In poorly followed-up cases, exceptional complications such as peritonitis may occur and are direct consequences of poor prognosis.

Open Journal of Thoracic Surgery (OJTS) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojts.2017.73007
Abstract: Objective: To report our experience of the esophageal plasty for caustic stenosis of the esophagus. Methods: Retrospective study of caustic stenosis of the esophagus in patients aged over 15 years, operated in Ouagadougou from 2008 to 2016. Nine patients were operated. Patients ranged in age from 25 to 53 years. Caustic ingestion was voluntary in 6 cases. Psychiatric disorders were confirmed in one case. The type of surgery and the postoperative evolution were analyzed. Results: In 6 patients the plasty was preceded by a gastrostomy or a feeding jejunostomy. The transplant, always placed in retro sternal position, was colic in 8 cases and gastric in one case. The evolution was marked by the occurrence of a cervical fistula in 5 cases, postoperative peritonitis in 2 cases, parietal suppuration in 2 cases and pneumothorax in 3 cases. One case of death was noted. After a follow-up of 6 months to 9 years, we noted a case of dysphagia. Conclusion: Esophageal plasty is a saving gesture that restores normal nutrition to the patient. It deserves to be promoted.

Extension on the fuzzy integral based on -decomposable measure
Mamadou Traore
International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences , 2001, DOI: 10.1155/s0161171201007281
Abstract: We extend the concept of fuzzy integral based on ⊕-decomposable measure from nonnegative fuzzy measurable function to extended real-valued fuzzy measurable function. Further investigations of fuzzy integrals based on pseudo-additive decomposable measure are carried out. Meanwhile, the space (S(μ),σ(⋅,⋅)) of all fuzzy measurable function will be proved to be a pseudo-metric space. Finally, as an application of this extension the Pettis integral will be obtained for that kind of fuzzy integral.
Enjeux économiques, conflits africaines et relations Internationales

Africa Development , 1999,
Abstract: Dealing with conflicts in Africa as problematic, this paper outlines four characteristics of conflicts in Africa: 1) that all African conflicts have economic stakes that are more or less obvious; 2) that all African conflicts are influenced by international and domestic geopolitics; 3)that African conflicts can be explained by political, economic and socio-cultural variables; and finally, that African conflicts are brought about by ill-organised , non free and fair elections.

Subrings of I-rings and S-rings
Mamadou Sanghare
International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences , 1997, DOI: 10.1155/s0161171297001130
Abstract: Let R be a non-commutative associative ring with unity 1 ¢ ‰ 0, a left R-module is said to satisfy property (I) (resp. (S)) if every injective (resp. surjective) endomorphism of M is an automorphism of M. It is well known that every Artinian (resp. Noetherian) module satisfies property (I) (resp. (S)) and that the converse is not true. A ring R is called a left I-ring (resp. S-ring) if every left R-module with property (I) (resp. (S)) is Artinian (resp. Noetherian). It is known that a subring B of a left I-ring (resp. S-ring) R is not in general a left I-ring (resp. S-ring) even if R is a finitely generated B-module, for example the ring M3(K) of 3 —3 matrices over a field K is a left I-ring (resp. S-ring), whereas its subring B={[ ±00 2 ±0 30 ±]/ ±, 2, 3 ¢ K} which is a commutative ring with a non-principal Jacobson radical J=K.[000100000]+K.[000000100] is not an I-ring (resp. S-ring) (see [4], theorem 8). We recall that commutative I-rings (resp S-tings) are characterized as those whose modules are a direct sum of cyclic modules, these tings are exactly commutative, Artinian, principal ideal rings (see [1]). Some classes of non-commutative I-rings and S-tings have been studied in [2] and [3]. A ring R is of finite representation type if it is left and right Artinian and has (up to isomorphism) only a finite number of finitely generated indecomposable left modules. In the case of commutative rings or finite-dimensional algebras over an algebraically closed field, the classes of left I-rings, left S-rings and rings of finite representation type are identical (see [1] and [4]). A ring R is said to be a ring with polynomial identity (P. I-ring) if there exists a polynomial f(X1,X2, ¢ € |,Xn), n ¢ ‰ ¥2, in the non-commuting indeterminates X1,X2, ¢ € |,Xn, over the center Z of R such that one of the monomials of f of highest total degree has coefficient 1, and f(a1,a2, ¢ € |,an)=0 for all a1,a2, ¢ € |,an in R. Throughout this paper all rings considered are associative rings with unity, and by a module M over a ring R we always understand a unitary left R-module. We use MR to emphasize that M is a unitary right R-module.
