BACKGROUND: Coagulopathies detected in horses with gastrointestinal problems seem to be associated with poor outcome. Plasma D-Dimer concentration is a sensitive test for assessing coagulopathies. HYPOTHESIS: Plasma D-Dimer concentration tested on admission is related to diagnosis and outcome in horses with colic. ANIMALS: Four hundred and ninety three horses referred for evaluation of abdominal pain. METHODS: Prospective observational clinical study. Horses were grouped according to diagnosis (medical and surgical intestinal obstructions, ischemic disorders with and without intestinal resection, enteritis, peritonitis), outcome (survivors, nonsurvivors), and number of coagulopathies (normal profile, 1 or 2 coagulopathies, subclinical disseminated intravascular coagulation [DIC]). Blood samples were collected on admission and plasma D-Dimer concentration, clotting times (PT and aPTT), and antithrombin activity were determined. Positive likelihood ratios (LR+) were calculated for evaluation of D-Dimer cut-off values, which were later tested in a logistic regression model. RESULTS: Horses with enteritis or peritonitis had significantly (P<.001) higher plasma D-Dimer concentrations and more severe coagulopathies on admission than horses with other diagnoses. Nonsurvivors also had significantly (P<.001) higher plasma D-Dimer concentrations at presentation than did survivors, and those horses with subclinical DIC on presentation had an odds ratio (OR) 8.6 (95% confidence interval [CI], 3.3-22.5, P<.001) for nonsurvival. Finally, D-Dimer concentrations>4,000 ng/mL had a LR+ of 5.9 and an OR 8.8 (95% CI, 4.5-17.1, P<.001) for nonsurvival. CONCLUSION AND CLINICAL IMPORTANCE: Plasma D-Dimer concentration measured on admission can be used to facilitate diagnosis and outcome prediction in horses with colic. A potential cut-off value for nonsurvival was found at approximately 4,000 ng/mL. [less ▲]

This article is a review on the role of stress echocardiography in valvular heart diseases, describing what the validated indications are, how to perform the test and the utility of performing this examination. Most valve diseases are characteristically dynamic and this dynamic component is best appreciated by exercise Doppler echocardiography. Dobutamine stress echocardiography is also useful in patients with severe aortic stenosis and left ventricular dysfunction. The main advantage of stress echocardiography is to concomitantly allow the evaluation of symptoms, exercise capacity and the hemodynamic consequences of valve diseases, especially in patients with severe valve diseases who deny symptoms or present equivocal symptoms. It also provides important prognostic information and may help to optimize surgical timing in difficult cases. Whether these data should be integrated in the management of patients needs further validation. [less ▲]

REASONS FOR PERFORMING STUDY: Acid-base disturbances are traditionally assessed using the Henderson-Hasselbach equation. The simplified strong ion approach describes more accurately the complex acid-base and electrolyte abnormalities present in endurance horses. OBJECTIVE: To describe acid-base and electrolytes changes in fit horses competing in a FEI*** 120 km endurance race and to compare the traditional vs. strong ion approaches. METHODS: Thirty horses were initially enrolled in the study. Venous blood samples were obtained before the race (n = 25), at the second (n = 29; 65.4 km) and third vet-gates (n = 23, 97.4 km) and upon race completion (n = 17). Blood gas analysis was performed to determine pH, PCO(2), PO(2), Na(+), K(+) and iCa(++), and calculate HCO(3)(-), base excess and tCO(2). Packed cell volume and total protein, globulin, albumin, lactate, phosphate, glucose and creatinine concentrations, as well as muscle enzymes activities, were also determined. Calculated variables included strong ion difference (SIDm), strong ion gap (SIG) and nonvolatile buffer concentration (A(tot)). A longitudinal linear model using the general estimating equation methodology was used for statistical analysis. RESULTS: Mild but significant increases in PCO(2), SIDm, lactate, plasma protein, globulins and A(tot), as well as a decrease in potassium concentrations were observed from the second vet-gate to race finish when compared to prerace values (P < 0.05). Using the strong ion approach, 67% samples showed acid-base disturbances vs. 70% when using the traditional method, but their interpretations only matched in 24% of measurements. CONCLUSIONS: A complex acid-base imbalance characterised by a mild strong ion alkalosis (hypochloraemia attenuated by hyperlactataemia), nonvolatile buffer acidosis and compensatory mild respiratory acidosis were present in most horses, although pH did not significantly change during a 120 km endurance race. The strong ion approach to interpretation of acid-base balance should be favoured over the traditional approach in endurance horses, given the frequent and complex alterations in PCO(2), SIDm and A(tot) during a race.

A model limited to motivation construct to explain the way from setting a vocational goal to its achievement cannot claim to give an account of how to overcome regulatory problems during goal striving. A model linking volition to motivation is needed. In particular, implementation intentions have been proved to be effective in helping the initiation of goal striving, shielding goal pursuit from unwelcome influences, and disengagement from not successful courses of action. It is proposed to extend the application of this volitional cognitive tool to career counselling. [less ▲]

Le droit est-il dans sa bulle ? Sans doute, il en sort pour entrer au contact des faits, mais ce n’est pas toujours facile. Quels chemins prend-il alors ? Cette leçon explorera l’hypothèse selon laquelle certaines sciences dites sociales peuvent l’aider à trouver sa route. Pour utiles que ces sciences soient pour le droit, elles n’en sont pas moins nombreuses et raffinées et les directions qu’elles indiquent peuvent paraître périlleuses. Aussi sera-t-il également question de la prudence que le droit a intérêt à observer lorsqu’il s’aventure sur la route des sciences. En somme, il s’agit de savoir comment le droit peut ouvrir sa bulle sélectivement aux connaissances scientifiques qui se prêtent à un usage juridique. [less ▲]

Promoting permanent adhesion between so dissimilar materials as polymers and metals is a very challenging target and a severe brake to the implementation of many potential applications. However, synthetic polymers can now be chemisorbed onto a variety of conducting surfaces by cathodic electrografting of acrylic monomers. The first part of this review will focus on the fundamental aspects of this emerging technology, thus from the historical discovery to experimental and theoretical developments, with the purpose to better comprehend the electrografting phenomenon. Once firmly established, this concept has been exploited in order to make polymeric coatings with specific functionality chemisorbed onto more diversified substrates in more convenient liquid media. This remarkable progress that largely relies on advanced controlled polymerization processes will be the topic of the second part of the review, with a special emphasis on the more recent development of smart coatings, particularly stimuli responsive coatings very well-suited to nanotechnologies.

Monoterpenoid emissions from Fagus sylvatica L trees have been measured at light- and temperature-controlled conditions in a growth chamber, using Proton Transfer Reaction Mass Spectrometry (PTR-MS) and the dynamic branch enclosure technique. De novo synthesized monoterpenoid Standard Emission Factors, obtained by applying the G97 algorithm (Guenther, 1997), varied between 2 and 32 mu g g(-1)DW h(-1) and showed a strong decline in late August and September, probably due to senescence. The response of monoterpenoid emissions to temperature variations at a constant daily light pattern could be well reproduced with a modified version of the MEGAN algorithm (Guenther et al., 2006), with a typical dependence on the average temperature over the past five days. The diurnal emissions at constant temperature showed a typical hysteretic behaviour, which could also be adequately described with the modified MEGAN algorithm by taking into account a dependence on the average light levels experienced by the trees during the past 10-13 h. The impact of the past light and temperature conditions on the monoterpenoid emissions from E sylvatica L was found to be much stronger than assumed in previous algorithms. Since our experiments were conducted under low light intensity, future studies should aim at confirming and completing the proposed algorithm updates in sunny conditions and natural environments.
