Background: Patients with acute pulmonary embolism (APE) present with a broad spectrum of prognoses. Computed tomographic pulmonary angiography (CTPA) has progressively been established as a first line test in the APE diagnostic algorithm, but estimation of short term prognosis by this method remains to be explored. Methods: Eighty two patients admitted with APE were divided into three groups according to their clinical presentation: pulmonary infarction (n=21), prominent dyspnoea (n=29), and circulatory failure (n=32). CTPA studies included assessment of both pulmonary obstruction index and right heart overload. Haemodynamic evaluation was based on systolic aortic blood pressure, heart rate, and systolic pulmonary arterial pressure obtained non-invasively by echocardiography at the time of diagnosis of pulmonary embolism. Results: The mortality rate was 0%, 13.8% and 25% in the three groups, respectively. Neither the pulmonary obstruction index nor the pulmonary artery pressure could predict patient outcome. In contrast, a significant correlation with mortality was found using the systolic blood pressure (p<0.001) and heart rate (p<0.05), as well as from imaging parameters including right to left ventricle minor axis ratio (p<0.005), proximal superior vena cava diameter (p<0.001), azygos vein diameter (p<0.001), and presence of contrast regurgitation into the inferior vena cava (p=0.001). Analysis from logistic regression aimed at testing for mortality prediction revealed true reclassification of 89% using radiological variables. Conclusion: These results suggest that CTPA quantification of right ventricular strain is an accurate predictor of in-hospital death related to pulmonary embolism. [less ▲]

We use the formal language LOTOS to specify a registration protocol between a user and a Trusted Third Party, that requires mutual authentication. We explain how a model-based verification method can be used to verify its robustness to attacks by an intruder. This method is also used to find a simpler protocol that remains secure. [less ▲]

A first research word carried out for fhe Commission of the European Communities has produced a manual design methodology (1). Mainly orientated to the conception of low-cost houses, it integrates some fundamental thermal concepts into the design process. The present research work had for target to apply this design method to an actual case, in order to test the practicabilité of the method, to bring its lacunas to to the light and to confront the theorectical estimations of heating energy needs, with actual measurements. The recommanded design process has been followed along the conception of 25 houses, among with five have been built and monitored. The design guide has been revised by a re-writing of the manual version, and has been computerized on a micro-computer. Any practical application is now considerably speeded up and usable by practicians. [less ▲]
