We report a rare case of single cervical metas- tasis of breast cancer. Bone metastases are the most frequent in breast cancer. early diagnosis combined with the new the- rapeutic advances have considerably improved the quality of life and increased the survival. imaging plays a great role in the diagnosis, particularly scintigraphy and radiography, but sometimes also ct and Mri. the treatment is currently not standardized and it combines hormone therapy, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and / or surgery.

Cette mise au point, consacrée aux atteintes neurologiques périphériques tronculaires du pied, abordera successivement les nerfs sural, fibulaire, tibial et saphène interne. Une attention particulière sera portée sur l’anatomie de ces troncs nerveux et ses variantes. En effet, la parfaite maîtrise de l’anatomie permet, d’une part, de reconnaître la symptomatologie liée à telle ou telle neuropathie tronculaire et, d’autre part, de mettre en œuvre la meilleure stratégie pour démontrer, sur le plan électrophysiologique, l’atteinte nerveuse suspectée cliniquement. La plupart des atteintes isolées des nerfs du pied n’ont rien de spécifique à cette région. Nous envisagerons donc, dans une première partie, les caractéristiques étiologiques, cliniques, électrophysiologiques et thérapeutiques communes et ensuite, pour chaque nerf, les aspects les plus spécifiques de leur atteinte. Sur le plan électroneuromyographique, plutôt que de faire le catalogue exhaustif des techniques décrites autour du pied, nous avons mis l’accent sur les procédures qui ont notre préférence et les limitations de certaines de ces méthodes.

OBJECTIVE: Automated external defibrillators (AEDs) are becoming increasingly available in public places to be used by citizens in case of cardiac arrest. Most AEDs are semi-automatic (SAEDs), but some are fully automatic (FAEDs) and there is ongoing debate and concern that they may lead to inadvertent shocks to rescuers or bystanders because the timing of the shock is not controlled by the rescuer. We therefore compared the behaviour of untrained citizens using an FAED or an SAED in a simulated cardiac arrest scenario. DESIGN AND PARTICIPANTS: One hundred and seventy-six laypeople were randomised to use an FAED or an SAED (Lifepak CR+, Medtronic, Redmond, USA) in a simulated cardiac arrest scenario on a manikin (Ambu, Denmark) where a bystander was touching the victim's upper arm. Each rescuer's performance was recorded on video and analysed afterwards using a modified Cardiff Score. The rescuer or the bystander was considered unsafe if either of them touched the victim during shock delivery. RESULTS: Eleven cases could not be analysed because of technical problems. Fifteen participants violated the protocol making further analysis impossible. Of the remaining 150 participants, 68 used the FAED and 82 used the SAED. The rescuers were safe in 97/150 (65%) cases, without a difference between FAED and SAED. The bystander was safe in 25/68 (37%) cases in the FAED group versus 19/82 (23%) in the SAED group (p=0.07). Combined safety of both rescuer and bystander was observed in 23/68 (34%) cases in the FAED group versus 15/82 (18%) in the SAED group (p=0.03). CONCLUSIONS: Safety was not compromised when untrained lay rescuers used an FAED compared with an SAED. The observation of overall safer behaviour by FAED users in the presence of bystanders may be related to the additional instructions provided by the FAED, and the reduced interaction of the rescuer with the bystander when using the SAED.
