The present study was designed to analyse the evolution of student populations--undergraduates and graduates--in the 11 Belgian medical schools from 1969 to 1982. During this period, an overall 44% drop in the number of entrants was observed, while the number of medical graduates continued to rise until 1977, when it stabilized. French- and Flemish-speaking universities followed a similar trend. During the period under study, the proportion of women students virtually doubled from 25 to 44%. The total success rate averaged 39% for Belgian students and 24% for foreigners. By comparing success curves over the years, the various medical faculties were rated with a 'selectivity' score, indicating those significantly different from the national average. A separate classification was made for preclinical (3 years of 'Candidature') and clinical (4 years of 'Doctorat') phases since, among the 11 Belgian medical schools, four teach only preclinical subjects. Marked differences in failure rates were observed between candidature and doctoral education even within universities. [less ▲]

Facio-craniostenosis. Facio-craniostenosis is associated with premature stenosis of one or several cranial sutures. The clinical variety is defined by the affected suture. In the complex forms, major disturbances of the anterior fossa of the cranial base are observed. Intracranial hypertension sometimes observed may lead to impairment of the function of the brain or the eyes. The authors have observed 73 children with craniostenosis and have operated upon 49 of them. Three types of methods have been used. The stress is made on the latest one combining advancement of the orbito-frontal "bandeau" and the regularization of the vault. Operating early is essential for prevention of functional sequellae. The optimal age for surgical treatment seems to be between 3 and 6 months. Complications have been remarkable benign. [less ▲]

The bacteriological control tests regularly carried out reveal the complexity of staphylococcal infection in burned patients. It is not uncommon to find several different strains which succeed one another or coexist in the same patient in the course of his hospital stay. In 5 of the 10 cases of infection of burns, an infection or superinfection of hospital origin was undoubtedly involved. Sometimes, the staphylococcus colonizes the burn furst, and subszquently tends to settle on the skin and in the nose. In other cases, the organism appears to be restricted initially to the nasal fossae, from which it subszquently spreads to the surface of the burn. This exogenous infection appears to be particularly severe, because it could not be suppressed in any of the cases. In view of the high incidence and great sseverity of this type of hospital infection, it must be admitted that the aseptic rules used, however strict are still inadequate. The failure of this prophylactic policy is to be attributed to the high degree of sensitiviy of burned tissue to infection; in burned tissue, the bacteria find conditions for multiplication that are as good as in the best artificial media. It is far better to prevent the staphylococcus from contaminating the burn than to attempt to combat the infection once it is fully established. [less ▲]
