An unusual temperature and concentration behavior of the resistivity ρ(T,x) in La0.7Ca0.3Mn1-xCuxO3 is observed at slight Cu doping (0 ≤x≤ 0.05). Namely, the introduction of copper results in a splitting of the resistivity maximum around the metal-insulator transition temperature T0(x) into two differently evolving peaks. Unlike the original Cufree maximum, which steadily increases with doping, the second (satellite) peak remains virtually unchanged for x<xc, increases for x≥xc, and finally disappears at xm ≃ 2xc, with xc ≃ 0.03. The observed phenomenon is thought to arise from a competition between substitution-induced strengthening of the potential barriers (which hinder the charge hopping between neighboring Mn sites) and weakening of the kinetic energy of the carriers. The data are well fitted by assuming a nonthermal tunneling conductivity theory with randomly distributed hopping sites. © 1999 American Institute of Physics. [less ▲]

The technique and the results of the external contention of the dilated ascending aorta by the application of an external Dacron graft are reported. This technique, without replacing the usual graft interposition, can efficiently and expeditiously treat borderline dilatation of the ascending aorta, as frequently encountered in aortic valve disease. If the sinotubular junction is not dilated, this technique may stop the aneurysmal evolution of the ascending aorta. [less ▲]

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate, in an elderly population, whether poor oral status might be a contributing factor to the development of undernutrition and might be associated with less eating pleasure, more subjective eating difficulty and increased mashed food consumption. METHODS: An oral examination and an evaluation of masticatory capacity were performed on 120 institutionalized elderly subjects. The nutritional assessment included serum albumin concentration, the Mini Nutritional Assessment and a questionnaire on eating habits. RESULTS: Edentulous subjects without dentures or with only one complete denture had significantly lower MNA scores than edentulous subjects with two complete dentures (p < 0.05). Edentulous subjects with two complete dentures more frequently reported taking pleasure from eating (p = 0.05), and had less frequent difficulties with hard foods (p = 0.01) than edentulous subjects without dentures or with only one complete denture. Mashed food consumption (p < 0.01) was also reported more frequently in edentulous subjects without dentures or with only one complete denture. Subjects with two complete dentures had similar or better MNA scores as dentate subjects with relatively few remaining teeth (10.4 +/- 7.8 teeth). About half of the subjects (53%) could not perform the masticatory test. These subjects had lower MNA scores (p = 0.001) and a larger proportion ate mashed food (p < 0.001) compared to those who were able to perform the test. CONCLUSIONS: Poor oral status (edentulous without dentures or with only one complete denture) increased difficulty in eating hard foods, increased mashed food consumption and decreased eating pleasure. It seemed also to put institutionalized subjects at higher risk of undernutrition. [less ▲]

We report the case of a 55 year old patient presenting a discrete obstructive sub-aortic membrane. After clinical examination, complete echocardiographic evaluation and cardiac catheterisation, an operative procedure was decided and the sub-aortic membrane was resected. The results were satisfactory but the literature reports risks of re-obstruction of the left ventricular outflow tract. The article points out the importance of an early diagnosis and further stresses the major role played by transoesophageal echocardiography in the evaluation of the patient. [less ▲]

The paper uses agriculture and forestry statistics to determine major trends of both urbanized and non urbanized development in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. It outlines the new morphological urbanization. The urban areas has been confined since the indsutrial revolution to the south west of the country. However during the seventies development was structured by the transport corridors extending from the capital and mining areas. Two new urban regions began also to develop : the "dipole" Ettelbürck-Diekirch and the Moselle valley. Recent trends of urban development is in contrast to the earlier trends characterized by wide spreads morphological urbanization notably in the Oesling. [less ▲]

A survey of information from 26 countries was performed to examine the methods, cutoff points, and reference materials used to define obesity in childhood and adolescence. The body mass index (in kg/m2) was used frequently, as well as several other methods. Reference materials used were often based on national surveys, although reference data from other countries were sometimes used. The data presented was often insufficient to judge the representativeness of the reference material. Cutoff points varied considerably. Available data allow neither a meaningful international estimation of the prevalence of obesity nor international comparisons. Although associated with considerable problems, this situation can be improved with an international consensus which, by necessity, will be riddled with uncertainties and compromises. [less ▲]

OBJECTIVE: Evaluation of the results obtained in the management of congenital heart diseases in Liege. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We evaluated the results, the mortality and the morbidity of diagnostic and interventional cardiac catheterization, and of the cardiac surgery in the 123 cardiac children who were referred to us during the three first years of operation of our medico-surgical team. RESULTS: 89 children underwent a catheterization, including 12 therapeutic interventions, whereas 68 were operated. In the two domains, the results are completely comparable with those of the established centers. CONCLUSIONS: The widening of the activity of paediatric cardiology and the creation of an activity of pediatric cardiac surgery in Liege appeared important to us for the quality of management of the cardiac children. This goal could be reached only if our results were comparable with those of the literature. The bet seems to be held. The ultimate objective is to contribute by an adequate policy of management to the quality of life and the health of the cardiac children. [less ▲]
