BACKGROUND: Allergic rhinitis (AR) is a common inflammation of the nasal mucosa in response to allergen exposure. We translated and validated the Score for Allergic Rhinitis (SFAR) into an Arabic version so that the disease can be studied in an Arabic population. OBJECTIVES: SFAR is a non-invasive self-administered tool that evaluates eight items related to AR. This study aimed to translate and culturally adapt the SFAR questionnaire into Arabic, and assess the validity, consistency, and reliability of the translated version in an Arabic-speaking population of patients with suspected AR...

Operation and organisation of ambulatory surgical activity in France remains largely undocumented. This nationwide observational prospective survey, carried out between December 2013 and December 2014, was undertaken to characterise the organisational processes of ambulatory surgery in France. Three hundred centres were randomly chosen from a list of 891 hospitals practicing ambulatory surgery, with stratification according to the type of facility (public general hospital, university hospital, private hospital) and region...

Ureterocele is a rare urologic disorder characterized by pseudocystic dilatation of the terminal submucosal ureter. Most cases of ureteroceles are associated with complete ureteral duplicity and ureterohydronephrosis, whereas ureteroceles on simplex ureters are rarer. The authors report two cases of bilateral ureteroceles on simplex ureters diagnosed prenatally at 30 and 32weeks gestation. Fetal ultrasound had revealed bilateral ureterohydronephrosis. The delivery was made at term and renal function was normal at birth...

OBJECTIVES: Mechanisms of colistin and carbapenem resistance among a collection of Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates recovered in a university hospital in Tunisia were studied. METHODS: In vitro antimicrobial susceptibility testing, S1 nuclease pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (S1-PFGE), Southern blotting and PCR-based replicon typing (PBRT) were performed. Extended-spectrum β-lactamases (ESBLs), carbapenemases, AmpC-type enzymes and mgrB genes were detected by PCR and sequencing...

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to document clinical features of inguinal hernia (IH) in the pediatric population. It provides data to evaluate associated risk factors of incarcerated hernia, its recurrence as well as the occurrence of contralateral metachronous hernia. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We report a retrospective analytic study including 922 children presenting with IH and operated from 2010 to 2013 in our pediatric surgery department. RESULTS: We managed 143 girls (16%) and 779 boys (84%)...

Over the recent period, the use of induced hypothermia has gained an increasing interest for critically ill patients, in particular in brain-injured patients. The term "targeted temperature management" (TTM) has now emerged as the most appropriate when referring to interventions used to reach and maintain a specific level temperature for each individual. TTM may be used to prevent fever, to maintain normothermia, or to lower core temperature. This treatment is widely used in intensive care units, mostly as a primary neuroprotective method...

INTRODUCTION: Congenital dysfibrinogenemia is a rare qualitative fibrinogen deficiency. Molecular defects that result in dysfibrinogenemia are usually caused by mutations which affect fibrinopeptide release, fibrin polymerization, fibrin cross-linking or fibrinolysis. AIM: Here, we investigated the genetic basis of hypodysfibrinogenemia in two Tunisian siblings with major bleeding. METHODS: Coagulation-related tests were performed on the patients and their family members...

INTRODUCTION: It has been recently suggested that microparticles (MP) play a role in the pathogenesis of thrombotic complications. This study aimed to assess the contribution of procoagulant activity expressed by circulating MP in thrombotic events in MPN patients. METHODS: Seventy-four MPN patients were enrolled in a trans-sectional study. The MP procoagulant activity was measured using two assays: (i) the thrombin generation (TG) assay used in different conditions with the addition of both tissue factor (TF) and phospholipids (PL) and with the addition of TF or PL alone and (ii) the PROCOAG-PPL assay...

Purpose To explore the association between the polymorphism (S/F) p.R102G in the complement component 3 (C3) gene and age-related macular degeneration (AMD) in a Tunisian population. Methods The molecular study was performed by polymerase chain reaction using sequence-specific primers (PCR-SSP) in 207 control subjects free of any eye disease (fundus normal) and 145 patients with exudative AMD. The CH50 activity and quantification of C3 and C4 have been made by technical home method and nephelometry, respectively...

BACKGROUND: Acute neuropathic pain can occur in the postoperative period but any link with persistent post-surgical neuropathic pain remains unclear. OBJECTIVES: The objectives of this study were to prospectively describe the incidence of acute post-surgical neuropathic pain in a large population using the DN4 (clinician administered) questionnaire and to confirm the hypothetical link between acute and persistent neuropathic pain at 2 months after surgery in a large population using the DN2 (self administered) questionnaire...

Hybrid zones provide natural experiments where new combinations of genotypes and phenotypes are produced. Studying the reshuffling of genotypes and remodeling of phenotypes in these zones is of particular interest to document the building of reproductive isolation and the possible emergence of transgressive phenotypes that can be a source of evolutionary novelties. Here, we specifically investigate the morphological variation patterns associated with introgressive hybridization between two species of sole, Solea senegalensis and Solea aegyptiaca...

OBJECTIVE: To discuss the effect of lesser-known potential risk factors, such as bedroom showers, on the prevalence of allergic rhinitis. METHOD: A cross-sectional, population-based study was performed using both survey and fungal culturing in southern Taiwan. There were 998 participants enrolled in the survey, and 513 sets of fungal culture obtained. With score for allergic rhinitis (SFAR) more than 7, the patient was defined to have allergic rhinitis. Risks of allergic rhinitis were calculated as odds ratios for various predicted risk factors by logistic regression...

BACKGROUND: Preeclampsia is one of the most common and serious complications of pregnancy. Various reports have demonstrated that disturbances in angiogenic and antiangiogenic factors are implicated in its pathogenesis and have possible relevance in its diagnosis and prognosis. METHODS: In this case-control study, we enrolled 73 patients with 34 preeclamptic cases diagnosed according to clinical criteria and dosing of proteinuria. The cases were matched to controls at the same age and parity...

The beta-thalassemia trait is a heterozygous beta-thalassemia characterized by a partial deficiency of the synthesis of beta-globin chains of hemoglobin. It is usually asymptomatic and the diagnosis is often made on the occasion of the completion of a systematic blood count or a family survey. Clinical expression during the neonatal period is impossible and its association with hereditary spherocytosis is common. We report two monozygotic twins who, on the 3rd day of life, presented intense jaundice, unconjugated bilirubin associated with anemia, without hepatosplenomegaly...

Risk factors for vascular complications include a sheath to femoral artery ratio (SFAR) > 1.05, use of sheaths >19 Fr, peripheral artery disease, female gender, and a learning curve. High rates of technical and procedural success were achieved with low rates of major vascular and bleeding complications. However, SFAR > 1.05, gender, diabetes, renal insufficiency, calcification, tortuosity, or aneurysm were not independent risk factors in this study. Despite an SFAR > 1.05 in 23 patients, increased rates of vascular complications were not seen using the SoloPath sheath...
