BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Paralysing lumbar disc herniation (LDH): what and when to do? Few studies have analyzed the optimal timing of surgery in case of paralysing LDH. METHODS: Twenty-four charts were retrospectively reviewed of patients suffering of LDH with severe motor deficit. RESULTS: There were 16 men and eight women. Mean age was 45.1 years. Seventeen patients suffered of lumbar pain, 15 of radicular pain and all of a severe motor deficit, implying mostly the ankle flexion (17 patients). LDH was most frequently located at L4/L5 or L5/S1 level. Surgery was proposed to all patients at the end of the consultation. Nine patients were operated within 48 hours. The mean interval between onset of motor deficit and operation was 20 days. The statistical analysis did not reveal any significant difference among different prognostic factors between the 17 patients with good motor recovery and the seven patients with poor motor recovery. In particular the operative delay did not appear to influence the degree of motor recovery. Literature review on paralysing LDH provides five published series since 1996, including 28 to 116 patients. Two series, including the single prospective one, conclude that the degree of recovery of motor function is inversely related to the degree and duration of motor deficit. CONCLUSIONS: Our retrospective series of 24 operated paralysing LDH did not reveal any prognostic factor for motor recovery. There is no evidence based medicine data in the literature about the optimal timing of decompressive surgery. A relative consensus exists among spine surgeons for paralysing LDH: since operative indication is obvious, surgery should be done as soon as possible. [less ▲]

Background: TADAM, a randomised controlled trial of heroin-assisted treatment, will begin in Liège, Belgium, in 2010. This trial will compare two groups of patients: one in a heroin-assisted treatment and the other in oral methadone treatment. In this new medical treatment, the criminal behaviour of the patients will also be assessed. It is one of the three efficacy criteria. Why? Methodology: We based our presentation on papers published on heroin-assisted treatment concerning changes in criminal behaviour. Results: Heroin-assisted treatment of treatment resistant heroin addicts has been successfully tested in six countries: Switzerland, The Netherlands, Spain, Germany, Canada and United-Kingdom. Each country has also assessed the criminal behaviour before and after the treatment with better results for heroin-assisted treatment than for methadone treatment. Conclusion: HAT seems a good way to treat criminal behaviour of a group: severely heroin addicts who already tried other treatments. [less ▲]

Background: A fraction of patients receiving methadone treatment pursues their use of street heroin. In Switzerland, a new treatment with prescribed diacetylmorphine (pharmaceutical heroin) was developed to help these heroin addicts resistant to methadone treatment to decrease their street heroin use. In this heroin-assisted treatment (HAT), diacetylmorphine is prescribed to severe heroin user and diacetylmorphine is administered by patients under the supervision of nurses in a specific centre. Six randomised controlled trials compared HAT to methadone treatment: in Switzerland, The Netherlands, Spain, Germany, Canada and United- Kingdom. HAT showed better efficacy than methadone. Patients used less street heroin, their health improved and their criminal behaviour decreased. A new trial assessed in Belgium the feasibility and efficacy of this treatment compared to methadone treatment. Methods: The TADAM (Treatment Assisted by Diacetylmorphine) was an open label randomised controlled trial developed on the Swiss model of HAT developed in 1994. Main inclusion criteria were 5 years of heroin addiction, (almost) daily use of street heroin and a previous attempt of methadone treatment. As in the Dutch experiment, patients could choose to inhale or to inject diacetylmorphine in the new HAT centre. HAT was stopped after 12 months and the best available treatment was offered to the patient. The research team assessed subjects every three months with standardised questionnaires (EuropASI, MAP-HSS, SCL-90-R) and questions on involvement in a criminal milieu. We completed our reported data with toxicological analysis and criminal proceedings. Results: 74 subjects were randomised in the trial: 36 in the experimental group and 38 in the control group. According to the primary efficacy criterion, the experimental group counted at least 30% more responders than the control group after 3 months (p<0.05), 6 months (p<0.05) and 9 months (p<0.01). At the 12 month assessment, the number of responders was still higher in the experimental group but the difference (11%) was no more significant (p=0.35). At the 12 month assessment, the condition of patients in the experimental group worsened compared to the 9 month assessment. This effect was not seen in the control group were patients could continue their methadone treatment after the 12 months. Conclusion: As in other countries, HAT is an effective treatment for severe heroin addicts resistant to methadone treatment. However, a predetermined duration of 12 month counteracts the efficacy of this treatment. [less ▲]

Summary : Heroin (or diacetylmorphine), a depressant of the nervous central system, is a semi-synthetic opiate. Its main adverse effect, respiratory depression, can lead to death, especially after an intravenous injection. By loss of tolerance, an overdose can be lethal following heroin use after a period of abstinence (voluntary or not). Mortality rate among heroin users is between 1 and 3%. Addiction, following a regular and continuous use, occurs in less than a quarter of persons who ever tried heroine. Heroin addicts often present with different problems (for instance, a criminal behaviour), without any obvious link with addiction. For a fraction of the addicts, addiction becomes a chronic relapsing disease, requiring a long term maintenance substitution therapy. However, relapses and sometimes continuous heroin use are frequent. For treatment resistant and severe heroin addicts, heroinassisted treatment can be a solution. Despite the numerous available therapies, heroin is considered to be the drug with the most negative effects on the user. [less ▲]

Labial herpes is a recurrent muco-cutaneous disorder caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV), particularly the HSV type I. It affects 10 to 30% of the adult population. The recurrence rate varies from episodic events to monthly recurrences. Several triggering factors have been identified. They include physical factors such as ultraviolet radiations and any local traumatism such as dental and neurosurgical interventions, and dermo-cosmetic procedures of the face. Hormonal factors are also involved including those related to menses and pregnancy. Psychogenic factors, particularly severe stress are also involved. Any other intercurrent infection may also be complicated by recurrent labial herpes. The management of recurrent labial herpes currently relies on the identification and possible avoidance of triggering factors, and on the use of antiviral agents. There is no curative treatment available so far. [less ▲]
