In diabetes-related amputations, the risk of nonhealing or infection of a wound and the need for revision are increased. Medical treatment before amputation should optimize general and local conditions including the regression of edema, the control of infection, and the optimization of glucoregulation. A major argument for foot-sparing surgery is the poor functional recovery after major limb amputation. Diabetic patients are frail, with an increased postoperative morbidity and mortality after major amputation. Factors detrimental to functional outcome are advanced age, end-stage renal disease, dementia, and above-knee amputation. A multidisciplinary approach is required to optimize the results of diabetes-related amputations. The authors discuss medical and technical aspects that may reduce the failure of minor or major diabetes-related amputations. [less ▲]

Penicillium marneffei infection is a rare fungal disease that cause significant disease in immunosuppressed patients. The geographical distribution of this dimorphic fungus is restricted to Asia, Southeast and Far East, where the disease is considered as an indicator of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Case report. A 42-year old Congolese woman living in Lubumbashi was admitted at the university hospital of Liège for exploration of a general status impairment. She experienced for three months spiking fever, weight loss, productive cough with bloody expectorations and progressive dyspnoea. She reported also to have non-bloody mild diarrhoea with abdominal pain. The HIV antibody status was positive with a low CD4 T lymphocytes count (28/µl). Pulmonary infiltrates were visualized on chest radiography and the computed tomography revealed the presence of a severe pneumopathy characterised by bilateral micronodular lesions. Mediastinal polyadenopathies associated with hepato- and splenomegaly were also highlighted. Bronchoscopy was performed and bronchial aspirations revealed the presence of numerous leucocytes with the presence of intracellular Gram positive organisms suggestive of yeasts. Ziehl, Giemsa and Gomori-Grocott staining were also performed. Ziehl staining was negative. The morphological aspect given by Giemsa staining excluded infection and the PCR specific for T. gondii B1 gene was negative. However, Gomori-Grocott staining revealed the presence of intracellular oval, elongated, sausage-shaped cells with a single transverse septum (3 to 5 µm). Penicillium marneffei was isolated from blood culture and respiratory samples. Intraveinous amphotericin B treatment was administrated during 15 days followed by itraconazole oral administration (200 mg/j). The antimycotic treatment improved the patient condition and despite other clinical troubles she was prematurely discharged because of financial problems. Conclusion. Opportunistic agents involved in HIV-infected patients differ in Africa and Asia and it is important to be able to make a rapid diagnosis with the aid of an experienced laboratory. [less ▲]

The inclusion of miconazole into cyclodextrin cavity has been demonstrated by different authors. Preliminary studies have shown which fragment of the molecule is involved in the inclusion. In the present study, AM1 approximate molecular orbital calculations have been performed on several cyclodextrins complexes ( CD, HP CD and HP CD) with miconazole and acidic compounds (maleic, fumaric and L-tartaric acids) as partners. For all the binary complexes, the inclusion of the dichlorobenzene–CH2–O-group leads to the most stable complex. For the ternary complexes, depending on their conformation and/or their structures, the acids can either stabilize or destabilize the complex. All the theoretical results were in good agreement with experimental data of miconazole inclusion yields into cyclodextrins. This work clearly demonstrates that the structure of both cyclodextrin and acid plays a key-role in the formation of inclusion complexes. [less ▲]

This paper analyzes, in a set-up where only the control over actions is contractible, the rationale for delegation. An organization must take two decisions. The payoffs are affected by a random parameter and only the agent knows its realization. If the principal delegates the control over the first decision to the agent, his choice may indicate the information that he possesses. If the principal retains control over the second decision, discovering this information is valuable. Hence, this paper provides a new rationale for delegation: A transfer of control to the informed party can be used to discover the private information. (JEL: D23, D82, L22 , M41) [less ▲]

The aim of our study was to detect the possible uncertainties arising from tumor movements in the daily routine treatment planning, in extreme breathing conditions. Ten patients with lung cancer were enrolled into the study. According to tumor location, five patients had peripheral and five had central tumor. After the normal planning CT scan, two more scans were made with the same CT parameters in maximal exhalation and in maximal inhalation. For planning, the normal breathing scans were used with the fusion of the maximal inhalation and maximal exhalation scans. After the fusion in all breathing phases the gross tumor volumes were contoured (GTV1, GTV2, GTV3). Around the GTV1 (normal breathing phase GTV) 3 planning target volumes (PTV) were generated with the margin of 0.5 cm, 1.5 cm and 2.5 cm (PTV1, PTV2, PTV3). Individual plans were generated to all PTVs. All GTV volumes were registered. In all cases volume deviations were registered in different breathing phases (min: 1.5%, max: 35.6%). For GTV coverage comparison the coverage index (CI) was used. In case of extreme breathing conditions, using 0.5 cm margin was sufficient to reach good coverage for central tumors. For peripheral tumors 1.5 cm margin had to be used for the acceptable coverage (CI: 0.85-1.00). In our study, extreme breathing conditions were analyzed. According to our results, CT scans used in the daily routine do not exactly represent the tumor midposition and the true tumor volume. Due to breathing synchronous tumor movements, 0.5 cm margin must be used for planning in central location. In peripheral tumors wider margin should be used. [less ▲]

InP nanowires are fabricated by organo-metallic vapour phase epitaxy and studied via photoluminescence measurements performed on single nanowires, finding evidence of state filling with increasing excitation power density. To increase flexibility in fabrication technology we developed a wet chemical procedure to grow a CdS shell on these wires. In these InP–CdS wires the luminescence efficiency was decreased with respect to the bare wires. The CdS capping procedure needs further investigations to improve the emission properties of nanowires, in order to become technically useful. We suggest as possible improvements of this technique to increase the bath temperature and/or illuminate the sample with UV radiation during the capping procedure. [less ▲]

Present paper focuses on the design of stiffened plates under bending and shear that are used in steel or composite bridges. Special attention is paid to situations involving one or two stiffeners, where Eurocode 3 Part 1.5 provides specific rules. First, the paper describes briefly the FEM numerical models used in parametric studies. Then, comparisons between results obtained respectively from numerical simulations and from application of the code clauses are presented. Also, some proposals for improved rules are made. [less ▲]
