Controversy surrounds which normative data should be used to estimate osteoporosis prevalence in men. Prevalence estimates may vary significantly when different normative standards are applied. Five normative datasets (NHANES female norms, local female norms, Hologic densitometer manufacturer female norms, NHANES male norms, Hologic male norms) were used to estimate the prevalence of osteoporosis by World Health Organization diagnostic criteria in a study population of 311 consecutive men between the age of 30 and 91 (mean 60.3 yr) referred to an outpatient osteoporosis center between January 1996 and December 1998. Statistically significant variations were seen in osteoporosis prevalence measured at three anatomical sites. The greatest relative variation was seen for the total femur, where osteoporosis prevalence ranged from 7.0% (NHANES and Hologic female norms) to 15.6% (NHANES male norms). The least relative variation was seen at the lumbar spine, where prevalence ranged from 18.1% (Hologic female norms) to 29.6% (local female norms). When considering osteoporosis at any site, prevalence was lowest (23.5%) based on Hologic female norms and highest (35.8%) based on local female norms. Interpretation of prevalence data should include an assessment of how normative standards influence reporting of the population at high risk of fracture. [less ▲]

It is estimated that over 200 million people worldwide have osteoporosis. The prevalence of osteoporosis is continuing to escalate with the increasingly elderly population. The major complication of osteoporosis is an increase in fragility fractures leading to morbidity, mortality, and decreased quality of life. In the European Union, in 2000, the number of osteoporotic fractures was estimated at 3.79 million. A baseline fracture is a very strong predictor of further fractures with 20% of patients experiencing a second fracture within the first year. The costs to health care services are already considerable and, on Current trends, are predicted to double by 2050. The direct costs of osteoporotic fractures to the health services in the European Union in the year 2000 were estimated at Euro32 billion. Guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis are available in many countries; however, implementation is generally poor despite the availability of treatments with proven efficacy. Programs to increase awareness of osteoporosis and its outcomes are necessary for healthcare specialists and the general public. Earlier diagnosis and intervention prior to the first fracture are highly desirable. (c) 2005 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

RÉSUMÉ : Dotée d’une réelle efficacité, la radiothérapie des cancers cervico-faciaux peut toutefois être à l’origine de complications sévères. Heureusement peu fréquente, l’ostéoradionécrose mandibulaire en constitue une des plus redoutables. Sa pathogénie relève d’altérations radiques au niveau de la muqueuse, de l’os et des glandes salivaires. Les facteurs de risque tiennent au patient, à la tumeur ainsi qu’aux modalités thérapeutiques. Une cascade d’événements prenant son origine dans l’hyposialie conduit à la nécrose osseuse via le développement de caries extensives et le traumatisme lié à l’extraction dentaire. Une prévention efficace existe, fondée sur une mise en ordre buccale préalablement à l’irradiation, sur des mesures hygiéno-diététiques et la pratique stricte de la fluoruration. Certains traitements médicaux peuvent stabiliser le processus. L’oxygénothérapie hyperbare exerce un effet bénéfique incontestable. Dans les cas les plus graves, une chirurgie reconstructrice par lambeau osseux libre microvascularisé constitue l’ultime recours pour restaurer tant la fonction que l’aspect cosmétique. Rapportant un cas clinique, l’importance de la bonne observance par le patient des principes de prévention est souligné. Parallèlement, l’accent est mis sur la nécessité d’une surveillance régulière exercée par le radiothérapeute afin d’éviter les conséquences gravissimes qui peuvent être celles de l’ostéoradionécrose mandibulaire.

Documentée par des milliers de papyrus, parchemins, ostraca, tablettes de bois ou cirées, – restes de livres ou de documents dont les plus anciens remontent au IIe siècle de notre ère –, la christianisation de l’Égypte a longtemps été perçue comme un phénomène ayant entraîné la disparition de la culture profane de tradition hellénique (paideia). Il faut cependant nuancer ce propos : nombre d’échanges, d’emprunts entre les deux types de cultures ont existé. La découverte, à côté de quelques papyrus, de 37 ostraca à contenu littéraire profane dans les ruines de monastères égyptiens, tous de la région thébaine, et datant de la fin du Ve siècle au milieu du VIIIe siècle, constitue un petit ensemble de témoins de ce phénomène. Nous fondant sur l'analyse de la forme, de la mise en page et du contenu de ceux-ci, nous montrerons par quels biais la paideia hellénique s'est introduite dans les monastères, milieux chrétiens par excellence.

In this study the occurrence of an “other-age” effect on age estimation was assessed. This effect consists in a more accurate estimation of own-age faces than other-age faces. Here, the age of participants (10 to 14 year old children and 20 to 30 year old adults) and the age of stimuli (faces of 10 to 14 year old children and faces of 20 to 30 year old adults) were crossed. Although we did not observe a crossed interaction where each age group would have been more accurate for in-group estimation than for out-group estimation, present results revealed the occurrence of an own-age bias in age estimation. Although both groups did not differ when estimating child faces, adults were more accurate than children when estimating the age of adult faces. Therefore, the present results showed an asymmetrical "other-age" effect. Several hypotheses explaining the present pattern of results are discussed. [less ▲]
