BACKGROUND: Fenestrated (F-) endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR)'s lack of widespread availability encouraged alternative strategies. Chimney graft (CG)-EVAR has spread when costs, manufacturing delays or anatomy preclude F-EVAR. Our objective was to evaluate CG-EVAR and F-EVAR's outcomes depending on the angulation of target renal arteries and hostility of iliac accesses to determine the potential impact of a choice made between the two techniques based upon preoperative anatomic criteria...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to evaluate orthodontic debonding methods by comparing the surface roughness and enamel morphology of teeth after applying two different debonding methods and three different polishing techniques. METHODS: Forty eight human maxillary premolars, extracted for orthodontic reasons, were randomly divided into three groups. Brackets were bonded to teeth with RMGIC (Fuji Ortho LC, GC, Tokyo, Japan) (two groups, n = 18 each) after acid etching (30s), light cured for 40 s, exposed to thermocycling, then underwent 2 different bracket debonding methods: debonding pliers (Shinye, Hangzhou, China) or enamel chisel (Jinzhong, Shanghai, China); the third group (n = 12) comprised of untreated controls, with normal enamel surface roughness...

The clinical epidemiology of immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is not well known in adults. This study was aimed at assessing the clinical epidemiology of incident ITP adults, the factors associated with chronicity and exposure to treatments. This study was conducted in the CARMEN registry, a multicentric prospective cohort aimed at including all newly diagnosed ITP adults in the French Midi-Pyrénées region, South of France (3 million inhabitants) from June 2013. Descriptive analyses and multivariate logistic regression models were conducted...

BACKGROUND: Tropicamide is a mydriatic drug used as eye-drops for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes. From 2013, a diverted use by intravenous route has been suspected in Eastern Europe in opioids users. To recent date, no signal of a misuse has been identified in France. PURPOSE: To investigate an early signal of a diverted use of tropicamide eye drops and to collect information regarding motives of misusing and tropicamide-induced effects. METHODS: Information was obtained at 1/ regional level (Midi-Pyrénées area): reimbursement data and pharmacists' reports on suspicious requests, 2/ national level: reimbursement data and prescriptions suggesting possible abuse from the OSIAP (Ordonnances Suspectes, Indicateur d'Abus Possible) survey and 3/ international level: VigiBase® reports and Web sources...

PURPOSE: The risk of venous thromboembolic event (VTE) in multiple myeloma is particularly increased. Current guidelines recommend systematic VTE prophylaxis with vitamin K antagonists (VKA) or low weight molecular heparin (LWMH) or unfractionated heparin (UFH) in high-risk patients, based on treatment received [e.g. use of IMiDs (thalidomide, lenalidomide and pomalidomide), alkylating agents or erythropoietin] and individual risk factors (e.g. history of VTE). The aim of this study was to describe strategy of VTE prophylaxis and prescribing of other antithrombotic agents during the first 6 months of multiple myeloma therapy, with stratification on IMiD-based regimens and drug and disease-related risk factors...

BACKGROUND: With approval of on-label fenestrated (F-) endovascular aortic repair (EVAR), concerns regarding long-term patency and endoleaks (ELs) after chimney graft (CG)-EVAR were raised. To add supportive data on the value of this technique, we chose to report the midterm results of CG-EVAR in a single center with standardized methods and to compare them to F-EVAR. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of prospectively gathered data from January 2010 to January 2015 was conducted, and patients with excessive comorbidities for open repair treated by CG-EVAR or F-EVAR were included...

Primary pulmonary mucinous (colloid) adenocarcinoma is a rare type of lung cancer. Its arising in the cavernomyoplasty area has not been reported before. We here describe a sixty-year-old man with a previous history of multidrug-resistant and surgically-treated tuberculosis who was diagnosed as primary mucinous adenocarcinoma in the cavernomyoplasty site. We discuss the relevant literature on this rare entity.

In heterozygous patients with a diabetic syndrome called mutant INS gene-induced diabetes of youth (MIDY), there is decreased insulin secretion when mutant proinsulin expression prevents wild-type (WT) proinsulin from exiting the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), which is essential for insulin production. Our previous results revealed that mutant Akita proinsulin is triaged by ER-associated degradation (ERAD). We now find that the ER chaperone Grp170 participates in the degradation process by shifting Akita proinsulin from high-molecular weight (MW) complexes toward smaller oligomeric species that are competent to undergo ERAD...

Gaseous elemental mercury (GEM, Hg) emissions are transformed to divalent reactive Hg (RM) forms throughout the troposphere and stratosphere. RM is often operationally quantified as the sum of particle bound Hg (PBM) and gaseous oxidized Hg (GOM). The measurement of GOM and PBM is challenging and under mounting criticism. Here we intercompare six months of automated GOM and PBM measurements using a Tekran (TK) KCl-coated denuder and quartz regenerable particulate filter method (GOMTK, PBMTK, and RMTK) with RMCEM collected on cation exchange membranes (CEMs) at the high altitude Pic du Midi Observatory...

Several intersectoral community approaches targeting childhood obesity (IACOs) have been launched in the Netherlands. Translation of these approaches into practice is however arduous and implementation. We therefore studied the implementation of five IACOs in the Netherlands for one-and-a-half years. IACO implementation was evaluated via an adapted version of the MIDI questionnaire, consisting of 18 theory-based constructs. A response rate of 62% was obtained. A hierarchical multivariate linear regression model was used to analyse our data; the final regression model predicted 65% of the variance in adherence...

BACKGROUND: X-ray mammography is one of the general methods for early detection of breast cancer. Since glandular tissue in the breast is sensitive to radiation and it increases the risk of cancer, the given dose to the patient is very important in mammography. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to determine the average absorbed dose of X-ray radiation in the glandular tissue of the breast during mammography examinations as well as investigating factors that influence the mean glandular dose (MGD)...

BACKGROUND: There has been increasing evidence to support the endovascular- first approach in the treatment of below the knee (BTK) lesions. Plain Old Balloon Angioplasty (POBA), with bailout bare-metal stent scaffolding in case of flow limiting dissection or recoil, have been considered the standard treatment of choice but industries are continually developing innovative equipment and dedicated technologies, such as drug-eluting platforms whose use is increasingly extended, despite significant costs and lack of high-quality evidence to support a well- established strategy...

The main limitation of adverse drug reactions (ADRs) reporting, particularly by general practitioners (GP), to the regional pharmacovigilance centers is under-reporting. The Midi-Pyrénées Regional Pharmacovigilance Center (South western, France) sets up regular visits by a clinical research assistant (CRA) to GP in order to increase the number of ADR reports. The aim of this pilot study was to assess the effect of regular visits of a CRA in GPs offices on the rate of ADR reporting. After one year, CRA visits permit a two-fold increase in ADR reporting...

The historically developed practice of learning to play a music instrument from notes instead of by imitation or improvisation makes it possible to contrast two types of skilled musicians characterized not only by dissimilar performance practices, but also disparate methods of audiomotor learning. In a recent fMRI study comparing these two groups of musicians while they either imagined playing along with a recording or covertly assessed the quality of the performance, we observed activation of a right-hemisphere network of posterior superior parietal and dorsal premotor cortices in improvising musicians, indicating more efficient audiomotor transformation...
