Si on peut discuter le résultat et des conséquences à court comme à long terme de la politique religieuse et ecclésiastique de Charlemagne, il est indéniable qu'elle fut, sans conteste, l’un des piliers de son gouvernement. L’organisation institutionnelle de l’Église, la propagation de la foi chrétienne et la défense de l’orthodoxie devaient, dans l’idée du roi et de ses plus proches conseillers, contribuer efficacement à l’unification du territoire soumis à sa domination.

BACKGROUND: In aortic stenosis (AS), the combination of risk factors can progressively lead to an increased arterial rigidity, which can be evaluated by the carotid artery and aortic stiffness (beta index). The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between carotid and aortic beta index, left ventricular (LV) function, plasma brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) level, and symptoms in patients with AS. METHODS: Comprehensive echocardiography including Doppler tissue imaging of the mitral annulus was performed in 53 patients with AS (aortic valve area < 1.2 cm(2)) and preserved LV ejection fractions (>/=50%). Carotid beta index was automatically derived from ultrasound wall tracking of the right carotid artery. The mitral E/e' ratio was used to estimate LV filling pressures. RESULTS: Carotid beta index was higher in women than in men and was significantly correlated with age (P < .0001), diastolic arterial pressure (P = .046), pulse pressure (P = .006), and systemic arterial compliance (P = .001). Interestingly, carotid beta index was significantly correlated with E/e' ratio (P < .0001) and plasma BNP level (P = .011). In multivariate regression analysis, carotid beta index was an independent predictor of E/e' ratio (P < .0001) and of BNP level (P = .02). Moreover, carotid beta index was significantly higher in symptomatic patients (P = .009). Aortic beta index was significantly correlated with carotid beta index (P < .0001), E/e' ratio (P = .004), and BNP (P < .001) and was significantly higher in symptomatic patients (P = .037). CONCLUSIONS: In patients with moderate to severe AS and preserved LV ejection fractions, the presence of increased carotid artery and aortic stiffness, assessed using carotid and aortic beta index, is independently associated with elevated LV filling pressures, BNP level, and symptoms.

The medical records of nine patients (five female and four male, mean age 58 +/- 5 years) presenting with a carotid chemodectoma between 1983 and 1995 were reviewed. In two cases (22%) the diagnostic was not suspected at the time of initial presentation. The most common complaint was a swelling in the anterolateral region of the neck. One patient (11%) presented with a preoperative peripheral nerves deficits (vagus and hypoglossal palsies and Horner's syndrome). Two tumours were embolized preoperatively with polyvinyl alcohol particles. Complete surgical excision was possible in each patient and the plane of resection was adventitial. In three cases, early ligation of the external carotid artery facilitated the resection. In two patients, the vagus nerve was sacrificed because of tumour involvement. No operative mortality was observed and no vascular complication occurred. In addition to the patient with preoperative neurologic symptoms, three patients developed peripheral nerve deficits (vagus and hypoglossal nerves) postoperatively. Two of these deficits were transient. These peripheral neurologic complications were observed with the largest tumour sizes. Two cases were malignant (lymph nodes and bony metastases). These two patients received postoperative radiotherapy. The mean follow-up period 63 +/- 19 months. No patient developed local recurrence during the follow-up. Two patients died during the follow-up, one for condition unrelated to their disease and the second from metastatic dissemination. In conclusion, carotid chemodectomas may be safely resected. The best way to minimize the rate of complications is to operate them at an early stage of evolution. [less ▲]

Controversy surrounds the role of carotid endarterectomy in octogenarians. Although the prognosis of severe degree carotid stenosis is more ominous in the elderly, operative risk seems more important in the aged. To evaluate the presumed detrimental effect of advanced age on the mortality-morbidity of carotid endarterectomy, the authors reviewed their common experience with carotid surgery in patients aged 80 years or more. From 1980 to 1994, 129 octogenarians were operated on for occlusive carotid artery disease in two university hospitals. The data for these patients, 80 years of age and older (group 1) are compared to these for a large middle age group (less than 80 years) (group 2) operated by the same surgeons during that period. The baseline characteristics of both groups were similar, except for smoking, diabetes and previous myocardial revascularization, more prevalent in the younger age group. In the elderly group prophylactic surgery for asymptomatic stenosis was done in 36%, versus 40% of the middle aged patients, and for stroke in evolution in 8% versus 4% (p < 0.05). The perioperative stroke rate was 0.8% in the group older than 80 years, compared to 1.2% for non octogenarians (NS). The operative mortality was similar for both age groups (2.3 and 1.5 respectively). The long-term results gave a similar outlook for both age groups. The 5-year stroke-free rate reached 89% for group 1 versus 91% for group 2. The 5-year survival rate, however, was less for the elderly patients (47% versus 77%, mean follow-up periods of 30 and 49 months). These results suggest that carotid endarterectomy can be safely done in elderly patients, with a similar risk/benefit ratio as for the younger patients. Advanced age, by itself, is not to be considered as contraindication to carotid surgery. [less ▲]

From 1981 to 1987, 29 patients (14 women and 15 men, with a mean age of 56 +/- 15 years) underwent a carotid-subclavian bypass for occlusive lesion of the subclavian artery (or of the left common carotid artery). The symptomatology included vertebrobasilar insufficiency, arm ischemic symptoms, or combination of both symptoms. Twelve patients (42%) have had a previous transient ischemic attack, or a cerebrovascular accident. There were 22 stenoses or occlusions of the left subclavian artery, and 6 of the right subclavian artery. On arteriography, 9 patients had significant associated lesions on the internal carotid artery, either homolateral (n = 7), or heterolateral, or bilateral. Carotid to subclavian bypasses were performed either with autogenous saphenous vein (n = 15), or with prosthetic graft (n = 14). In 5 cases, a carotid endarterectomy was done simultaneously to the bypass. Operative mortality was 3.4% (1/29). Early patency (less than 1 month) was 97% and late patency 89%, with a mean follow-up of 40 +/- 24 months. The patency rates were not significantly different whether a prosthesis or a vein was used for the bypass. All patients were improved and complete relief of symptoms was achieved in 92%. No patient experienced symptoms of carotid steal after the bypass. We concluded that carotid-subclavian bypass is a safe and efficient method for revascularization of the subclavian artery of of the left common carotid artery in selected cases. [less ▲]

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition rarely encountered during the growth period. We describe five new cases in two large Belgian university hospitals. One case concerned a 2-year-old child suffering from disseminated angiomatosis, an association not previously reported. Another case of mild severity corresponded to the classic association of trigger fingers and carpal tunnel syndrome. The third case was posttraumatic, and the last two cases were of the familial type that previously has been reported in four families. We discuss these observations and briefly review the literature.
