Indirect computed tomography (CT) venography reportedly provides high accuracy for detection of venous thrombosis in patients suspected of pulmonary embolism (PE). Nevertheless, the extent of the scanning range for lower limb and abdominal veins remains to be determined. It was the objective of this study to investigate the distribution of venous thrombosis in order to identify the most appropriate extent of scanning range when using CT venography. We reviewed 1,408 combined CT pulmonary angiographies (CTPA) and indirect CT venographies of the lower limbs, performed in patients suspected of PE. Percentage of venous thromboembolism (VTE), which includes PE and/or venous thrombosis was calculated. Location and the upper end of clots were recorded in 37 venous segments per patient from calf to diaphragm. PE, venous thrombosis and VTE, were found respectively in 272 (19.3%), 259 (18.4%) and 329 (23.4%) patients. Addition of CT venography to CTPA increased depiction of VTE in 17.3%. The upper end of venous thrombosis was located below the knee in 48%, between knee and inguinal ligament in 36% of the patients, and above the inguinal ligament in 15%. Ninety-six patients had thrombosis in a single vein, of which none occurred above the iliac crests in a patient without PE at CTPA. In conclusion, when added to CTPA, optimal scanning of CT venography should extent from calves to the iliac crests in patients suspected of VTE. [less ▲]

Dermatopathology is a tool using the microscopic examination for diagnosing cutaneous diseases. The frontiers of its field of interest were extended by exploring the physiopathology of skin functional properties. An example is provided by the evaluation of alterations of skin suppleness in various connective tissue disorders. This approach takes profit from both conventional histology and histochemistry. Immunohistology targeting dermal dendrocytes reveals their various shapes reflecting the modifications in tensegrity under the control of mechanobiology. The latter property is an indicator of the evolution and severity of the connective tissue changes. Electron microscopy is also very instructive in this field. The in vivo examination by dermoscopy highlights a similar mechanism involving the melanocytes. From an engineering point of view, the skin and subcutaneous tissue represent an integrated load-transmitting structure. It is subjected to intrinsic and environmental influences. Some models were offered to explain how skin withstands and transmits loads through deforming appropriately or abnormally according to disorders of the connective tissue structure. We report a brief review of the principles of interpretation of the measurements of the skin biomechanical properties, and the histological presentations of mechanobiology. The applications of such investigations are summarized in the Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, inguinal hernias, gravitational syndrome, diabetes, scleroderma, hemodialysed patients, in case of growth hormone administration and during climacteric.

The aim of the Journées des Sciences du Muscle et Technologies de la Viande is to give a report on the most recent research works to the technical, economical and scientific actors of the meat production and transformation chain. The topics of these researches and the organisations that carry them out evolve with time, depending in particular to the needs of the actors (producers, manufacturers, distributors, consumers) and of the socio-economic context. In addition, these researches fit themselves more than ever in an international context, particularly on a European level. The objective of this lecture, a somewhat ambitious idea, is to give an overview of the researches undertaken in Europe in muscle science and meat technology field. [less ▲]

This article lays down a parallel between the conceptions of literature and the writer sustained by Victoria Ocampo and Pierre Drieu la Rochelle. Apart from delving into some aspects of the friendship that brought them together (interrupted by the growing Fascist sympathies of Drieu), the figures of the intellectual and the artist are examined as they appear in their corresponding testimonial works.

Cancer treatment-induced bone loss (CTIBL) is one of the most important side effects of adjuvant antineoplastic treatment in hormone-dependent neoplasms. Chemotherapy, GnRH analogs and tamoxifen can induce marked bone loss in premenopausal women with early breast cancer. Aromatase inhibitors (AIs) are replacing tamoxifen as the preferred treatment for postmenopausal women. As a class effect, steroidal (exemestane) and non-steroidal (anastrozole and letrozole) AIs increase bone turnover and cause bone loss (4%-5% over 2 years). When compared to tamoxifen, the risk of getting a clinical fracture under AI treatment is increased by 35%-50%. In patients with prostate cancer, androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) increases bone turnover, reduces bone mass (4%-5% per year) and increases the fracture rate depending on the duration of therapy. Zoledronic acid can prevent accelerated bone loss induced by goserelin in premenopausal women, by letrozole in postmenopausal women and by ADT in men. More limited data indicate that weekly alendronate or risedronate could also be effective for preventing CTIBL. Initiation of therapy early, prior to the occurrence of severe osteoporosis, rather than after, may be more effective. Bisphosphonate treatment should be considered in osteoporotic but also in osteopenic patients if other risk factor(s) for fractures are present. [less ▲]

A certain possible approach for the control of HCCI chemistry is to use kinetic chemistry mechanisms. This opens a field of interest that lead to the composition of a validated reduced PRF chemistry mechanism. For this purpose a skeletal chemical reaction mechanism for n-heptane and for iso-octane are constructed from a detailed n-heptane and iso-octane mechanism of the Chalmers University of Technology. Subsequently these two mechanisms are forged into one reduced chemical reaction mechanism for mixtures of n-heptane and isooctane (39 species and 47 reactions). This mechanism is numerically validated against the Chalmers mechanisms, respecting the HCCI application range. The reduced mechanism is also successfully numerically validated against another more detailed mechanism provided by LLNL. Engine experiments are performed validating this mixture mechanism with respect to the fuel composition containing n-heptane and iso-octane. The influence of the compression ratio and the equivalence ratio is also studied and used to validate the reduced PRF mechanism. [less ▲]
