A new surgical technique, the inside-out transobturator tension-free urethral suspension (TVT-Obturator), has been developed for treatment of women suffering from stress urinary incontinence (SUI). This simple procedure uses specifically designed surgical instruments to allow the accurate passage of a synthetic tape from underneath the urethra, through the obturator foramens, toward the thigh folds, with the tape being positioned without tension under the junction between mid and distal urethra. Cadaver dissection studies have demonstrated that the anatomical trajectory of the tape in tissues is strictly perineal and consistently coursed away from neighboring neurovascular structures, including the obturator, femoral, and saphenous nerves and vessels, as well as the pudendal nerve. Consequently, as opposed to retropubic sling systems, no perioperative cystoscopy is required because the TVT-O tape does not enter the pelvic region at any time during the procedure. These anatomical data, which suggest the TVT-O technique is safe, have been corroborated by initial clinical experience. Our feasibility and ongoing efficacy studies have shown that TVT-O is associated with a low incidence of perioperative and postoperative complications. In our current series of more than 500 consecutive patients treated with TVT-O, no injury to the bladder or urethra was encountered and no perineal or obturator hematoma, heavy bleeding, or neurological complication was observed. Medium-term results have suggested that TVT-O is as efficient as retropubic tension-free slings for treatment of female SUI, with +/-90% complete cure rates after one-year follow up. [less ▲]

Polymer composites consisting of polypyrrole doped by uranyl complexing polyanions [i.e., poly(2-acrylamidoglycolic acid) and poly(2-acrylamido-2-methyl-1-propanesulfonic acid)] were electrochemically synthesized. Bulk material and thin layers strongly adhering to inert supporting electrodes were prepared. These composites were used to precipitate uranyl ions from simulated radioactive wastes. Among different experimental techniques used for the analysis of uranium immobilized in the composites, the Rutherford backscattering of cu particles proved efficient in thin layers. Leaching tests confirmed the persistence of the uranium complexation in the solid composites. [less ▲]

An original technique of insertion and corporotomy closure on the level proximal is described. Proximal angle of corporotomy is closed on the pipe of the hydraulic cylinder by a point of vicryl which was installed before the device implantation. This simple technique allows correct installation of proximal extremity of the prosthesis in the tail of the cavernous body and avoids damage and perforation to the prothesis.

In the vast protected areas of Africa, traditional wildlife surveys performed by plane or foot are logistically difficult to implement due to the lack of means and appropriate materials. Moreover, the possibilities of encountering poachers in the field pose a serious risk to the monitoring teams. Over the last decade, civilian UAS (Unmanned Aerial Systems) boomed in natural resource monitoring. One of the biggest challenges of the UAS is to replace traditional wildlife censuses for the application of wildlife conservation. Parameters have to be approached in a different way than before. We performed test flights in the open savannah of the Garamba National Park during the wet season using the Falcon Unmanned UAS. Both photos (Sony Nex7, 24Mp) and videos, including thermal infrared videos (Tamarisk 640x480), have been used. Flight altitude ranged from 50 to 200m and pictures showed that animals can be effectively detected at 100m. We spotted elephants, hippopotamus and buffaloes as well as other smaller species such as hartebeests, kobs and warthogs. Thermal videos gave medium quality results during the day due to the heat but performed well during the night. The limited range and endurance of the UAS suggest a rethink of the usual census protocols. We therefore tested new flight plans in a rosette shape to take advantage of the higher points in the park, with transects having the length of the maximal range. Twelve transects of 10km can be covered in half a day with pictures covering a 15.6km² area. Human activities could also be detected. Pictures showed areas burned by poachers and the thermal infrared camera allows the detection of fires from a high altitude. Future developments need to be investigated such as automatic detection to review the huge amount of data collected and statistical methods must be adapted to those challenging situations. [less ▲]

We reported the experiment on the accurate measurement of the kinetic energy released during the predissociation of HeH+ ions into the fragments H+ and He. This experiment was carried out on two machines specially designed for this purpose. The new results differ from those of the original experiment and agree now very well with the theoretical predictions. [less ▲]

Type 2 diabetes is a progressive chronic disease resulting from a dynamic interaction between defects in insulin secretion and insulin action. New molecules have recently been launched and many others are under clinical investigation. Besides classical sulfonylureas and glinides, new insulin secretagogues are now available, which target the incretin gut hormone glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). Indeed, oral incretin enhancers acting as antagonists of the enzyme DPP-4 (dipeptidylpeptidase-4), - 2 - which inactivates natural GLP-1, and injectable incretin mimetics (exenatide) or analogues (liraglutide), which reproduce the actions of GLP-1 while resisting to DPP-4, represent new opportunities to stimulate insulin secretion, without increasing the risk of hypoglycaemia and weight gain. Among insulin sensitizers, metformin remains unequivocally the first drug of choice for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, whereas promising drugs as thiazolidinediones (glitazones) were recently challenged because of various safety issues. When insulin is required, insulin analogues, both short-acting and basal ones, may offer some advantages regarding better control of postprandial hyperglycaemia, reduced risk of hypoglycaemia and/or lower weight gain in patients with type 2 diabetes. Emphasis should be put on early detection and intensive management of type 2 diabetes, individualized glucose lowering treatments and goals, stepwise pharmacological strategy avoiding therapeutic inertia, and multiple cardiovascular risk-targeted approach.
