English to French: Treatment Outcomes among Patients with Extensively Drug-Resistant Tuberculosis: Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis General field: Medical Detailed field: Medical: Pharmaceuticals
Source text - English All patients met the definition for infection with XDR TB (Table 2). For second-line drug testing, all studies reported testing results for at least ofloxacin and kanamycin. Drug-susceptible concentration cutoffs reported were consistent across studies. The majority of the studies did not include HIV-infected patients. The mean age of subjects ranged from 30.5 to 47.5 years. The mean number of drugs to which isolated organisms were resistant ranged from 5 to 10.5. All patients reportedly were treated for XDR TB under close supervision, in hospital settings or on an ambulatory basis. In all 13 studies, patients received at least 12 months of therapy after culture conversion. The mean number of drugs included in the XDR TB treatment regimens ranged from 3.6 to 7.4, and the mean number of “likely active drugs,” as reported in 8 studies, ranged from 1.9 to 5.3. The percentage of patients receiving a latergeneration fluoroquinolone ranged from 0 to 91.5, the percentage of patients receiving linezolid ranged from 0 to 100, and the percentage undergoing surgery ranged from 4 to 60.
The definition of cure varied among the studies (Table 2). Nine of the 13 studies followed the current World Health Organization standard definition of at least 5 consecutive negative cultures during the last 12 months of treatment . One study required 3 negative cultures and no clinical evidence of TB at the end of therapy ; one study required treatment completion plus 1 negative culture ; and 2 studies from the United States reported only treatment completion and did not provide any data on microbiological status at the end of therapy [18, 28].
To date, XDR TB treatment outcomes have been examined only in small, observational studies. We used meta-analysis to summarize these findings, reporting on 13 studies that included 560 patients. The proportion of patients who experienced favorable outcomes ranged from 18% to 67%, and the percentage of patients who received a later-generation fluoroquinolone was significantly associated with the proportion with favorable outcomes. We found that a cohort in which all patients received later-generation fluoroquinolones would have a 40% increase in favorable outcomes, compared with a cohort in which no patients received later-generation fluoroquinolones. Although this finding is potentially confounded by age, it nevertheless raises an important clinical question, since it suggests that the addition of a later-generation fluoroquinolone, even in the presence of representative fluoroquinolone resistance, might significantly improve outcomes. Moreover, this is an intervention that can be implemented and assessed immediately.
Translation - French Tous les patients répondaient à la définition de l'infection par tuberculose UR (tableau 2) En ce qui concerne les tests des antituberculeux mineurs, toutes les études ont indiqué des résultats d'essai pour au moins l'ofloxacine et la kanamycine. Les seuils de concentration engendrant une sensibilité aux médicaments étaient consistants dans toutes les études. La majorité des études n'ont pas inclus les patients infectés par le VIH. L’âge moyen des sujets s’étendait de 30,5 à 47,5 ans. Le nombre moyen de médicaments auxquels des organismes isolés étaient résistants s’étendait de 5 à 10,5. D’après les données, tous les patients ont été traités pour tuberculose UR sous vigilance accrue, en milieu hospitalier ou sur une base ambulatoire. Dans chacune des 13 études, les patients ont reçu au moins 12 mois de thérapie après que les résultas de cultures soient redevenus négatifs. Le nombre moyen de médicaments inclus dans les schémas thérapeutiques contre la tuberculose UR s’étendait de 3,6 à 7,4 et le nombre moyen de médicaments potentiellement actifs, comme rapporté dans 8 études, s’étendait de 1,9 à 5,3. Le pourcentage de patients recevant une fluoroquinolone de dernière génération s'étendait de 0 à 91,5 , le pourcentage de patients recevant du linezolide s’étalait de 0 à 100 et le pourcentage de ceux subissant un traitement chirurgical s’étalait de 4 à 60.
La définition de guérison variait en fonction des études (Tableau 2). Neuf des 13 études suivaient la définition standard actuelle de l’Organisation Mondiale de la Santé d’au moins 5 cultures négatives consécutives au cours des 12 derniers mois de traitement . Une étude requerrait 3 cultures négatives et aucun signe clinique de tuberculose à la fin du traitement ; une étude a requerrait le suivi complet du traitement plus 1 culture négative ; et deux études aux Etats-Unis n’ont rapporté que le suivi complet du traitement et n’ont fourni aucunes données en rapport avec le statut microbiologique à la fin du traitement [18, 28].
À ce jour, les résultats de traitements contre la tuberculose UR ont été examinés seulement dans des études observationnelles, d’envergure restreinte. Pour compiler ces résultats se rapportant à 13 études incluant 560 patients, nous avons utilisé la méta-analyse. La proportion de patients ayant présenté une issue favorables s’étendait de 18% à 67%, et le pourcentage de patients ayant reçu un traitement par fluoroquinolone de dernière génération a été associé significativement à la proportion de ceux ayant présenté une issue favorable. Nous avons découvert qu’une cohorte de patients ayant reçu un traitement par fluoroquinolone de génération récente présente une augmentation de 40% d’issues favorables, comparé avec une cohorte de patients ou aucun n’a reçu de traitement par fluoroquinolone de dernière génération. Bien que ce résultat soit potentiellement confondu par l’äge, il soulève cependant une importante question clinique vu qu’il suggère que l’addition d’une fluoroquinolone de dernière génération, même en présence d’une résistance aux fluoroquinolone représentative, peut améliorer significativement l’issue. De plus, c’est une intevention qui peut être mise en place et évaluée sur-le-champ.
English to French: Laparoscopic Gallbladder Surgery for Gallstones found on site "web md" General field: Medical Detailed field: Medical (general)
Source text - English Laparoscopic Gallbladder Surgery for Gallstones
Laparoscopic gallbladder surgery (cholecystectomy) removes the gallbladder and gallstones through several small cuts (incisions) in the abdomen. The surgeon inflates your abdomen with air or carbon dioxide in order to see clearly.
The surgeon inserts a lighted scope attached to a video camera (laparoscope) into one incision near the belly button. The surgeon then uses a video monitor as a guide while inserting surgical instruments into the other incisions to remove your gallbladder.
Translation - French Chirurgie Laparoscopique de la vésicule biliaire pour cause de calculs biliaires
La chirurgie laparoscopique de la vésicule biliaire (cholécystectomie) permet le retrait des calculs biliaires de la vésicule biliaire au travers de peites ouvertures (incisions) de l'abdomen. Le chirurgien gonfle votre abdomen avec du gaz carbonique pour mieux y voir.
Le chirurgien insère une sonde optique éclairée reliée a une caméra (laparoscope) dans une incision près du nombril. Le chirurgien utilise ensuite un moniteur vidéo pour se guider alors qu'il insère des instruments chirurgicaux par les autres incisions pour retirer votre vésicule biliaire.
