Long-term outcomes ( mean 38 +/- 17 months) were evaluated in 27 dogs with sinonasal aspergillosis after successful medical treatment using intranasal infusions of 1% or 2% enilconazole ( 1%, n= 15; 2%, n= 12). Long-term outcomes with both treatment protocols were good, with half of the dogs being asymptomatic throughout the follow-up period. The remaining dogs showed mild clinical signs compatible with chronic rhinitis/sinusitis. These clinical signs were interpreted as chronic lymphoplasmacytic rhinitis/sinusitis and episodes of bacterial rather than fungal infection. Three dogs had confirmed reinfection or relapse 2 to 36 months after clinical resolution. [less ▲]

Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) is actually considered as one of the most appropriate techniques for measuring bone mineral content (BMC) and bone mineral density (BMD). An anthropomorphic phantom and a 25-year-old girl were repeatedly measured, 160 times and 50 times respectively, over an 18-month period to investigate performance in vitro and in vivo of a commercial DXA equipment (HOLOGIC QDR 1000). DXA is a highly accurate technique, the BMC and BMD determinations only overestimated the exact value of the phantom by 0.20% and 0.51% respectively. In vivo long-term (18 months) reproducibility of BMD of the spine is characterized by an interassay coefficient of variation (CVt) of 0.8% while, for the different regions of interest of the hip, BMD CVt varies from 1.1% (total zone) to 5.3% (Ward's triangle). In the subject tested, BMD sensitivity for changes of 2.2% at the lumbar spine and 3% at the hip were recorded. [less ▲]

We review the current status of our long-term monitoring project on slowly pulsating B stars that we started in the course of 1996 and that was recently completed as far as the first part of our plan is concerned. In total, we have selected 17 southern and 8 northern stars. The idea is to fully exploit our current data in the near future and to select the most interesting targets for further very-long-term follow-up monitoring. A first conclusion is that half of the southern targets turn out to be spectroscopic binaries. Some of these have circular orbits and periods of the same order of magnitude as the intrinsic pulsation period(s) of the primary. The eccentric binaries have periods ranging from 12 to 460 d. For most stars the photometric behaviour is dominated by the same frequency as the intrinsic spectroscopic variability. Multiperiodicity in the expected frequency range is found for almost all stars. Two objects, however, turn out to have only one dominant pulsation mode. [less ▲]

The Long-term Photometry of Variables project is described. All measurements were carried out in the Stromgren uvby system and preference was given to differential measurements with two comparison stars. Included in this photometry program was the study of R 81, the counterpart of P Cyg in the LMC. A variation period of 74.59 + or - 0.01 days was obtained for this eclipsing binary. [less ▲]

We examined whether an increase in high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) predicts long-term prognosis in patients with stable angina pectoris. hs-CRP is an inflammatory marker that predicts future cardiovascular events in healthy subjects and patients with unstable and stable coronary syndromes. Long-term evaluation of pre- and postprocedural inflammatory markers has not been widely reported. In particular, the effect of the magnitude of increase in hs-CRP after PCI in stable patients is unknown. We prospectively analyzed 89 stable patients treated by PCI for stable angina pectoris. Patients were recruited between August 1998 and May 1999, and the population was followed until August 2005 (mean follow-up 79.5 +/- 10.3 months). A major adverse cardiac event (MACE) was defined as the occurrence of cardiac death, myocardial infarction, or recurrent angina requiring repeat PCI or coronary artery bypass grafting. During the follow-up period, 36 patients presented with > or =1 MACE. In multivariate analysis, independent predictors of the occurrence of MACEs were previous myocardial infarction and a significant increase in hs-CRP after PCI (p = 0.004 and 0.003, respectively). A significant increase in hs-CRP after PCI was found to be more predictive of MACEs than hs-CRP before and after PCI. In conclusion, in stable coronary artery disease, inflammation is associated with long-term adverse events, but the magnitude of the inflammatory reaction after PCI appears more predictive than the baseline value.

Summary: Objective. The purposes of this study were to assess the long-term efficacy of medialization laryngo- plasty via injection of autologous fat in patients with unilateral laryngeal paralysis, and to discuss the results based on the volume of fat injected and the size of the initial glottic gap. Study design. This was a retrospective study with clinical reevaluation of 18 patients treated for unilateral laryn- geal paralysis at Liège University Hospital between April 1, 2011, and December 1, 2014. Method. The voice examination included subjective scales (GRBAS and the Voice Handicap Index), a report on acous- tic and aerodynamic voice parameters, and laryngostroboscopic assessment of glottic closure and mucosal wave (T0: preoperative; T1: immediate postoperative; T2: >1 year). Results. The median follow-up duration was 19 months. We observed a significant improvement in maximum pho- nation time; mean flow rate; jitter; the Voice Handicap Index; the G, R, B, and A subscales of the GRBAS-I; and glottic closure at T1. These parameters remained stable over time, without any significant difference except for shimmer and glottic closure between T1 and T2. Regardless of the volume of fat injected and the magnitude of the initial glottic gap, we did not see any significant difference from one assessment time to another. Conclusion. Medialization laryngoplasty by means of the injection of autologous fat is a safe, effective surgical tech- nique for patients with unilateral laryngeal paralysis regardless of the size of the initial glottic gap. The results are maintained longer than 1 year, and no evidence of significant resorption of the fat was found in our study over a period of 12–58 months. The volume of fat injected does not seem to affect the functional results. Key Words: Glottic insufficiency–Glottic closure–Glottic gap–Laryngeal paralysis–Vocal fold paralysis–Laryngoplasty– Autologous fat–Fat injection. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to assess cardiac and general health status 8 to 14 years after neonatal arterial switch operation for transposition of the great arteries. METHODS: Sixty unselected children with intact ventricular septum (78.3%) or ventricular septal defect (21.7%) without or with aortic isthmic stenosis (5.1%) were examined 10.5 +/- 1.6 (mean +/- SD) years after neonatal switch and 5.3 +/- 1.6 years after mid-term evaluation. Complete clinical examination, standard and 24-hour Holter electrocardiogram, M-mode, 2D-, Doppler, and color Doppler echocardiography were performed. Results were compared with normal values and to mid-term follow-up results. RESULTS: Rates of reoperation after arterial switch operation and operation to correct concomitant coarctation were 3.3% and 5.1%, respectively. No patient needed medication, and 93.3% had no limitation of physical activity. All children had normal height and weight; 31.6% had abnormal thoracic configuration after median sternotomy. Most patients (91.7%) were in sinus rhythm. Incidence of complete right bundle branch block (10.0%) was unchanged, as was prevalence of ectopic activity (occasional atrial ectopy 20.0%, ventricular ectopy: occasional 21.7%; frequent 1.7%). Left ventricular dimensions and shortening fraction did not change over time. Diameters of neo-aortic valve annulus and neo-aortic root did not increase, and z-scores decreased between mid-term and present evaluation. Incidence of neo-aortic insufficiency was 13.3% and remained unchanged in comparison with the pre-examination value. Neo-aortic stenosis was not seen. Compared with mid-term follow-up, incidence (41.6%) and degree of supravalvular pulmonary stenosis increased. CONCLUSIONS: Good cardiac results persist 10 years after neonatal arterial switch operation for transposition of the great arteries. Encouraging findings include preservation of left ventricular function, low incidence of rhythm disturbances, lack of further neo-aortic root dilatation, and unchanged incidence of neo-aortic insufficiency compared with mid-term follow-up. Increased incidence and degree of supravalvular pulmonary stenosis are of concern. [less ▲]
