Several reasons result in the finding that patients with cirrhosis need surgery more often than other patients groups. Patients with cirrhosis frequently have comorbidities resulting in gastrointestinal, lung or cervical cancer, among others. Independent of cirrhosis, surgical resection may be the best alternative for a number of those malignancies. Comorbidities may also result in an increased incidence of vascular complications (such as lower extremity atherosclerosis and coronary stenosis) sorne of them being potential indications for surgery, Patients with alcohofic cirrhosis are more frequently subjected to trauma and bone fractures. Ascites leads to umbilical hernia which can be strangulated or ruptured. Emergency surgery may be needed in this context. Finally, a significant proportion of patients with cirrhosis develop hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) during the course of the disease. Surgical resection remains a first line option for HCC. While reliable guidefines have been proposed for surgical resection of HCC and liver transplantation, no precise guidelines are available for other aspects of surgical management during cirrhosis. Specific surgical procedures such as hepatectomy and transplantation are concentrated in highly speciafised centres, where detailed evaluation is relatively easy to obtain. In contrast, more general surgical procedures, either abdominal or non abdominal, are performed in various centres, making it more difficult to obtain detailed evaluation and draw recommendations. General surveys are still needed to precisely assess the risk of non-specifie surgery in patients with cirrhosis, to identify risk factors and to propose reliable guidelines.

La discussion philosophique en classe : une pratique de l'émancipation ?

This paper presents a recent pedagogical practice in the field of philosophy in school: Discussion with Democratic and Philosophical Aim (DDPA). According to the author, this practice differs from a more traditional conception of philosophy teaching by upsetting three key aspects of the pedagogical relationship: the relationship to knowledge, the relationship to the master, the relationship to the group. For each of these aspects, it is to show, on the one hand how authority is questioned and reworked, and secondly how the power relations relayed by the school system are revealed and transformed. More broadly, the author argues that the DDPA in its very practice questions in a new light the nature of the philosophical act and undermines the established partitions between teacher and student, philosopher and non-philosopher, scientist and ignorant. It is in this paper to highlight the concept of emancipation - inseparably intellectual and political - that underlies such a learning device of philosophy. L’article présente une pratique pédagogique récente dans le domaine de la philosophie à l’école : la Discussion à Visée Démocratique et Philosophique. D’après l’auteure, cette pratique se distingue d’une conception plus traditionnelle de l’enseignement de la philosophie en bouleversant trois aspects essentiels de la relation pédagogique : le rapport au savoir, la relation au maître, le rapport au collectif. Pour chacun de ces aspects, il s’agit de montrer, d’une part comment l’autorité est remise en question et réélaborée, et d’autre part comment les rapports de domination relayés par le système scolaire sont dévoilés et transformés. Plus largement, l’auteure avance que la DVDP, dans sa pratique même, interroge sous un angle nouveau la nature de l’acte philosophique et ébranle les partages établis entre maître et élève, philosophe et non-philosophe, savant et ignorant. Il s’agit dans cet article de mettre en lumière la conception de l’émancipation – indissociablement intellectuelle et politique – qui sous-tend un tel dispositif d’apprentissage de la philosophie.

Abstract Background: International guidelines for hormone-receptor-positive (HR+), human epidermal growth factor receptor-2 negative (HER2-) advanced breast cancer (BC) recommend sequential lines of hormonal therapy (HT), and only recommend chemotherapy for patients with extensive visceral involvement or rapidly progressive disease. This study evaluated actual physician-reported treatments for advanced BC in Europe. Methods: We conducted a retrospective chart review of 355 postmenopausal women with HR+, HER2- advanced BC who progressed on >/=1 line of HT (adjuvant or advanced) and completed >/=1 line of chemotherapy (advanced). Treatment choice was evaluated for each line of therapy. Results: Of 355 patients, 111 (31%) received first-line chemotherapy, whereas 218 (61%) and 26 (7%) switched from HT to chemotherapy in second and third line, respectively. More patients receiving first-line HT had bone metastases (73% vs 27% chemotherapy). Patients treated with first-line chemotherapy had more brain (12% vs 3% HT) or extensive liver (13% vs 6% HT) metastases. Subgroup analysis of 188 patients who received first-line HT and had de novo advanced BC or relapsed/recurrent disease more than 1 year after adjuvant therapy found that the majority (89%; n = 167) of these patients switched to chemotherapy in second line. However, among these 167 patients, 27% had no significant changes in metastases between first and second line. Among the 73% of patients who had significant changes in metastases, 20% had no brain metastases or extensive visceral disease. Conclusions: Our study suggests that the guideline-recommended use of multiple HT lines is open to interpretation and that optimal treatment for European postmenopausal women with HR+, HER2- advanced BC who responded to HT may not be achieved.

The accuracy and reliability of visual assessments of SLB severity by raters (i.e. one plant pathologist with extensive experience and three other raters trained prior to field observations using standard area diagrams and DISTRAIN) was determined by comparison with assumed actual values obtained by digital image analysis. Initially analyses were performed using SLB severity over the full 0-100% range; then, to explore error over short ranges of the 0-100% scale, the scale was divided into sequential 10%-increments based on the actual values. Lin’s concordance correlation (LCC) analysis demonstrated that all raters were accurate when compared over the whole severity range (LCC coefficient (ρc)= 0.92-0.99). However, agreement between actual and visual SLB severities was less good when compared over the short intervals of the 10×10% classes (ρc= -0.12-0.99), demonstrating that agreement will vary depending on the actual disease range over which it is compared. Inter-rater reliability between each pair of raters over the full 0-100% range (correlation analysis r= 0.970-0.992, P<0.0001), and inter-class correlation coefficient (ρ≥ 0.927) were very high. This study provides new insight into using a full range of actual disease severity vs limited ranges to ensure a realistic measure of rater accuracy and reliability, in addition to contributing to the ongoing debate on the use of visual disease estimates based on the 0-100% ratio scale for epidemiological research.
