Two-stage liver transplantation, i.e. salvage emergent total hepatectomy with prolonged anhepatic state, and subsequent liver transplantation, has been described as a life-saving procedure in selected cases. The principal drawback of two-stage liver transplantation is the fact that anhepatic patient survival only depends on the future availability of a liver graft. The pathophysiologic alterations induced by total hepatectomy are not fully known, as it is not known how long a patient may be anhepatic before it is too late for hope of survival. In this report the authors describe the cases of three liver recipients who had to undergo salvage liver graft removal early during or after liver transplantation as a life-saving maneuver. All were afterwards registered for emergent liver retransplantation. Mean anhepatic period was 20 hours (Range: 17-24 hours). Two patients survived and fully recovered. From this experience and from other cases reported in the literature, the authors concluded that total hepatectomy may be life-saving in some cases if a liver graft is available in a timely manner.

This article examines the usefulness and impact of a new generation of sketch-based environments on the preliminary or conceptual stages of architectural design. It also contemplates new directions in the field of digital sketch interpretation, particularly in architecture. Our qualitative and exploratory study compares three different forms of preliminary architectural design activities: one architecture student in a conventional pencil and paper situation, and two other architecture students using different versions of EsQUIsE software on a Virtual Desktop. Our observations lead to three major conclusions: (1) An automatically generated 3D model is a useful feature for checking the volumes of a planned building. (2) In spite of imposing some limits, the EsQUIsE environment enables the user to make modifications in the nature of architectural representations. (3) Several “superposition design” approaches exist, partly structured by the design environment. [less ▲]

The major part of the Hanonet Formation is deposited on a mixed siliciclastic– carbonate detrital ramp, whereas the top is dominated by carbonate-rimmed shelf-related sedimentation. The transition corresponds roughly to the Eifelian–Givetian boundary. This work is based on two stratigraphic sections located in the southern part of the Dinant Synclinorium. Petrographic study leads to the definition of 11 microfacies, which demonstrate important sedimentological differences existing between the sections. A curve showing microfacies evolution is interpreted in terms of changing bathymetry. An environmental model depicts the lateral transition from a multiclinal carbonate ramp (to the east) to a forereef setting (to the west). Magnetic susceptibility was used to establish accurate stratigraphic correlations between the two sections. It also leads to an appreciation of the relative importance of eustatic sea-level change and local sedimentation rate. The combined interpretation of the microfacies curves and the magnetic susceptibility provides a new view of the sedimentary dynamics of the studied sections and, in a more general way, a better understanding of the processes responsible for magnetic susceptibility variations in carbonate rocks.

Prevalence: The prevalence of pituitary tumors has been a topic of controversy for many years. Autopsy and radiological series show that pituitary incidentalomas may be present in one of six people. Recent epidemiological data suggest that clinically apparent pituitary adenomas have a prevalence of approximately one in 1,000 people in the general population. The disconnect between these two prevalence rates underlines the common clinical quandary of how to manage pituitary incidentalomas, particularly those lacking clinical signs/symptoms or hormonal abnormalities. Management: The natural history of incidentalomas suggests that periodic hormonal, clinical and radiological follow-up is the optimal approach. In the absence of tumor growth or relevant symptoms, screening can be continued intermittently or curtailed based on the clinical judgment of the physician. In the presence of hormonal hypersecretion, the management of pituitary incidentalomas, whether they are micro- or macroadenomas, should follow accepted clinical guidelines. For incidental pituitary macroadenomas without hormonal hypersecretion, clinical management should also include assessments for visual field impairment or hypopituitarism. In such cases, regular radiological and hormonal follow-up is required to identify tumor growth or the appearance of new symptoms. In the presence of tumor growth or new hormonal abnormalities, surgical options should be considered and discussed with the patient. Copyright (C) 2007 S. Karger AG, Basel. [less ▲]

The book Statistical Parametric Mapping: The Analysis of Functional Brain Images (2007) provides the background and methodology for the analysis of all types of brain imaging data, from functional magnetic resonance imaging to magnetoencephalography. Critically, "Statistical Parametric Mapping" provides a widely accepted conceptual framework which allows treatment of all these different modalities. The book takes the reader from the basic concepts underlying the analysis of neuroimaging data to cutting edge approaches that would be difficult to find in any other source. The material is presented in an incremental way so that the reader can understand the precedents for each new development. This book will be particularly useful to neuroscientists engaged in any form of brain mapping; who have to contend with the real-world problems of data analysis and understanding the techniques they are using. It is primarily a scientific treatment and a didactic introduction to the analysis of brain imaging data. It can be used as both a textbook for students and scientists starting to use the techniques, as well as a reference for practicing neuroscientists. [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.

CONTEXT: Limited screening suggests that three germline mutations in the aryl hydrocarbon receptor interacting protein (AIP) gene are not involved in sporadic pituitary tumorigenesis. Multiple novel mutations of this gene have since been identified in familial isolated pituitary adenoma cohorts. OBJECTIVE: The objective of the study was to undertake full AIP coding sequence screening to assess for the presence of germline and somatic mutations in European Union subjects with sporadic pituitary tumors. DESIGN: The study design was the analysis of DNA from peripheral blood lymphocytes and analysis of exons 1-6 and paraexonic intron sequences of AIP. Multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification was used to screen separate sporadic pituitary tumor tissue samples for discrete and extensive deletions or mutations of the AIP gene. Setting: The study was conducted in university tertiary referral Clinical Genetics, Molecular Biology, and Endocrinology Departments. RESULTS: In 107 patients [prolactinomas (n =49), nonfunctioning tumors (n = 29), somatotropinomas (n = 26), ACTH-secreting tumors (n = 2), TSH-secreting tumors (n = 1)], no germline mutations of AIP were demonstrated. Among a group of 41 tumor samples from other subjects, a novel AIP mutation (R22X) was found in one sample in which the corresponding allele was deleted; follow-up screening of the patient demonstrated a germline R22X AIP mutation. CONCLUSIONS: AIP mutations do not appear to play a prominent role in sporadic pituitary tumorigenesis in this population of European subjects. [less ▲]
