INTRODUCTION: Jumper's knee is a frequent chronic overuse syndrome of the upper part of the patellar tendon. Platelets contain lots of growth factors which could enhance the healing process of tendons. METHODS: Twenty patients with chronic upper patellar tendinopathy were enrolled. Assessments were made before infiltration of PRP, and 6 weeks and 3 months after the infiltration, using a 10--point Visual Analogic Scale, clinical examinations with a pressure algometer, algofunctional scores (IKDC and VISA--P), functional assessments (isokinetic and optojump evaluations) and imagery (ultrasounds and MRI). The PRP was obtained with an apheresis system (COM.TEC, Fresenius). Six millilitres of PRP were injected without local anaesthetic. One week after infiltration, patients started a standardised sub--maximal eccentric reeducation. RESULTS: Pain during daily activities significantly decreased with time. During functional evaluation, it decreased as well, but without significant functional improvement. No improvements in the imagery measurements were observed. Younger patients seemed to be more susceptible to have an improvement of pain by the PRP infiltration. CONCLUSION: This study demonstrates that a local infiltration of PRP associated with a submaximal eccentric protocol can improve symptoms of chronic jumper's knee in patients non--responsive to classical conservative treatments.

One original application of the distribution network development, based on existing HV network, is presented for the rural electrification of developing countries. Supply of a few kVA to remote site needs specific installations. We have developed, installed and experimented one practical application from April 17th, 2002 in Makola (Congo-Brazzaville, 30 km far from Pointe Noire). We have investigated the case where a HV OHL exists in the vicinity of the village. Our application is a one-phase connection to a 220 kV line with a local demand estimated at 50 kVA (about 500 people) in a first step. We have adapted the existing technology of SF6 inductive voltage transformer in order to supply 50 kVA instead of a few VA. The paper will present the problems met during the design of this specific installation compared to classical substation, and the results of first months of use. [less ▲]

This work deals with the development of an appropriate constitutive model for semi-solid thixoforming processes of metallic alloys. These processes rely on a very specific material behavior called thixotropy that can be displayed by some metallic alloys heated up to their semi-solid state. It is a particular evolutionary behavior which is characterized by a solidlike behavior at rest and a liquid flow during shearing, thus by a decrease of the viscosity and of the resistance to deformation while sheared. An original one-phase thermo-elasto-viscoplastic constitutive model has been developed. The basic idea is to extend the classical isotropic hardening and viscosity models beyond the solid state by considering two more non-dimensional internal scalar parameters. The semi-solid state is treated as a particular case, and one of the main features of the proposed constitutive model is that it remains valid over a wide range of temperatures, starting from room temperature to above the liquidus in a continuous manner, thus allowing a continuous transition between classical solid and fluid behavior. Another feature is that, after the forming step, it is possible to simulate the cooling down of the component back to room temperature using the elastic–viscoplastic model. So it is possible to estimate residual stresses, something that is definitely impossible while using a fluid-like model or a rigid viscoplastic approach. The presented model is illustrated and validated by means of representative numerical applications, as two different extrusion tests are carried out and the computed predictions are compared to experimental results.

The effectiveness of synthetic salmon calcitonin (SCT) administered as a nasal spray was assessed via clinical, biological, and radiological variables in 17 previously untreated Pagetic patients over a 1-year course of therapy. The results showed a highly significant decrease of serum alkaline phosphatase (S-ALP) (p less than 0.05 after 1 month of treatment) and of the urinary hydroxyproline/creatinine ratio (OH/Cr) (p less than 0.01 after 1 month of treatment). For the whole group, the mean decrease in S-ALP was 37 +/- 4% (SEM) after 6 months (p less than 0.01) and 31 +/- 5% after 1 year (p less than 0.01). The mean fall in OH/Cr was 35 +/- 6% (SEM) (p less than 0.01) and 37 +/- 7% (p less than 0.01) after 6 and 12 months, respectively. None of the usual side-effects of SCT were reported and local tolerance was excellent throughout the study. [less ▲]
