Manuel de Formation a la Chirurgie Reparatrice de la Fistule

FIGO et partenaires; UNFPA, (2011)

Trop peu de médecins ont les compétences nécessaires pour traiter la fistule génitale et pour suivre les patientes après l’opération chirurgicale. La plupart des actes ont lieu en Afrique et en Asie par des chirurgiens locaux, avec un support technique fourni par les chirurgiens de pays développés, où les cas de fistules sont rares. Il faudrait de nombreuses années aux médecins actuellement capables de traiter les fistules obstétricales pour opérer toutes les femmes qui ont besoin de leurs expertises, ces femmes qui sont chaque jour de plus en plus nombreuses. Bien que le besoin de chirurgiens formés au traitement de la fistule soit reconnu, il n’existait pasjusque là de manuel de formation standard. Ce présent manuel a été conçu pour pallier à ce manque. Ce manuel a été conçu en collaboration avec des chirurgiens de la fistule, des organisations professionnelles et des organisations spécialistes de la santé, basées en Afrique, en Asie, en Europe et aux États-Unis.

WHO guidelines for screening and treatment of precancerous lesions for cervical cancer prevention

Green Ink, Eds.: World Health Organization, (2013)

Cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) is a premalignant lesion that may exist at any one of three stages: CIN1, CIN2, or CIN3. If left untreated, CIN2 or CIN3 (collectively referred to as CIN2+) can progress to cervical cancer. Instead of screening and diagnosis by the standard sequence of cytology, colposcopy, biopsy, and histological confirmation of CIN, an alternative method is to use a ‘screen-and-treat’ approach in which the treatment decision is based on a screening test and treatment is provided soon or, ideally, immediately after a positive screening test. This guideline provides recommendations for strategies for a screen-and-treat programme
