The chapter of J. Banks, P. Diamond and J. Mirrlees (BDM) presents an excellent survey of the existing literature on optimal taxation and discusses a number of lessons that can be drawn from that literature. One of the main lessons on which their chapter focuses concerns the treatment of capital income. The authors argue that the finding that the optimal income tax schedule should not include tax on capital is based on too many restrictions, and is thus not robust for policy purposes. Another lesson is that taxation should vary with age. Not having any quarrel with these two points, I would like in this comment to discuss a number of points too quickly dealt with or deliberately neglected by BDM. They concern the issue of tagging, the problem raised by having more than one unobservable characteristic (besides ability), the issue of myopia and prodigality, the question of equal opportunities, the taxation of couples and the threat of tax competition [less ▲]

OBJECTIVE: The management of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) fistulae after anterior cranial base fracture remains a surgical challenge. We reviewed our results in the repair of CSF fistulae complicating multiple anterior cranial base fractures via a combined intracranial extradural and intradural approach and describe a treatment algorithm derived from this experience. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the files of 209 patients with an anterior cranial base fracture complicated by a CSF fistula who were admitted between 1980 and 2003 to Liege State University Hospital. Among those patients, 109 had a persistent CSF leak or radiological signs of an unhealed dural tear. All underwent the same surgical procedure, with combined extradural and intradural closure of the dural tear. RESULTS: Of the 109 patients, 98 patients (90%) were cured after the first operation. Persistent postoperative CSF rhinorrhea occurred in 11 patients (10%), necessitating an early complementary surgery via a transsphenoidal approach (7 patients) or a second-look intracranial approach (4 patients). No postoperative neurological deterioration attributable to increasing frontocerebral edema occurred. During the mean follow-up period of 36 months, recurrence of CSF fistula was observed in five patients and required an additional surgical repair procedure. CONCLUSION: The closure of CSF fistulae after an anterior cranial base fracture via a combined intracranial extradural and intradural approach, which allows the visualization and repair of the entire anterior base, is safe and effective. It is essentially indicated for patients with extensive bone defects in the cranial base, multiple fractures of the ethmoid bone and the posterior wall of the frontal sinus, cranial nerve involvement, associated lesions necessitating surgery such as intracranial hematomas, and post-traumatic intracranial infection. Rhinorrhea caused by a precisely located small tear may be treated with endoscopy. [less ▲]

OBJECTIVE: We present a case of brachial plexus avulsion and reconstructive surgery with cerebrospinal fluid leak between the cervical subarachnoid space and the pleural cavity responsible for tonsillar herniation and syringomyelia. CLINICAL PRESENTATION: A 17-year-old man presented with headaches when he was positioned upright, simultaneously with a persistent right pleural effusion for about 4 months after reconstructive surgery for a right brachial plexus avulsion. In addition, the headaches had worsened considerably after two aspirations of the pleural effusion. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) demonstrated signs of chronic intracranial hypotension and tonsillar herniation with a presyrinx cavity from vertebral level C1 to C7. None of those abnormalities were seen on the MRI scan obtained a few days after the initial trauma 7 months previously. Plexus brachial MRI confirmed the presence of a cerebrospinal fluid leak between the avulsed root of C8 and the pulmonary apex. INTERVENTION: The leak was treated by surgical closure of the dural tear of the C8 root. Postoperatively, the patient's headaches immediately resolved, and MRI 4 months later showed resolution of cerebellar tonsil herniation and regression of the syrinx. CONCLUSION: Resolution of acquired tonsillar herniation and syringomyelia can be achieved by closure of the dural tear responsible of the cerebrospinal fluid leak. [less ▲]

New measurements of radiative lifetimes for 9 levels in singly ionized tungsten (Wii) have been performed with the time-resolved laser-induced-fluorescence technique. Transition probabilities have been obtained from a combination of experimental lifetimes and theoretical branching fractions. The reliability of the present results is assessed through the good agreement observed between the calculated lifetimes and the experimental values from this work and from previous publications. These new results fill in a gap in the available data for this atomic species particularly important for fusion reactors. [less ▲]
