Composite tissue allotransplantation (CTA) is a complex procedure requiring a multidisciplinary collaboration between surgeons, anesthetists, and transplantation specialists. We will describe the perioperative management of a bilateral forearm allograft performed at our facility. A 40-year-old man who lost both forearms was registered on the transplant waiting list; a suitable graft was available 11months later. Anesthesia required planning for vascular access, hemodynamic monitoring, fluid therapy management and prevention of deep vein thrombosis...

INTRODUCTION: The issue addressed in this chapter of recommendations is: What is the clinical and para-clinical assessment to achieve in women with genital prolapse and for whom surgical treatment has been decided. What are the clinical elements of the examination that must be taken into account as a risk factor of failure or relapse after surgery, in order to anticipate and evaluate possible surgical difficulties, and to move towards a preferred surgical technique? MATERIAL AND METHODS: This work is based on a systematic review of the literature (PubMed, Medline, Cochrane Library, Cochrane Database of Systemactic Reviews, EMBASE) for meta-analyzes, randomized trials, registries, literature reviews, controlled studies and major not controlled studies, published on the subject...

INTRODUCTION: Open sacrocolpopexy have demonstrated its efficiency in surgical treatment of pelvic organ prolapse with an important backward on a large number of patients. Laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy reproduced the same surgical technique with reduced morbidity and may benefits from the recent development of robotic. Numerous technical variants have been developped around the original procedure but results seems not ever equivalent. Our objectives are to establish practical recommendations issues from the data of the litterature on the various technical aspects of this technique...

The Drug Reaction with Eosinophilia and Systemic Symptoms (DRESS) syndrome is life-threatening. It associates a skin condition with hematological and visceral disorders. The DRESS syndrome diagnosis in the intensive care unit (ICU) is difficult as clinical features are nonspecific. Furthermore, the need to treat patients with multiple drugs usually prevents the identification of the causative drug. We report the case of a patient who developed two bouts of DRESS caused by piperacillin-tazobactam, the first being complicated with a distributive shock...

Previous research on the perception, recognition, and learning of sounds and words has identified diverse effects of phonetic variation. The present study examined how variation affects cross-language production of consonant clusters. American English speakers shadowed words beginning with nonnative clusters in low- and high-variability conditions. Shadowing responses in the low-variability condition were quite sensitive to fine-grained phonetic properties that were manipulated across the stimuli. Notably, longer stop bursts led to increased rates of epenthesis, lower burst amplitudes resulted in more feature change and deletion, and intense periods of voicing at cluster onset elicited prothetic responses...

Recent research suggests that V1 plays an active role in the judgment of size and distance. Nevertheless, no research has been performed using direct brain stimulation to address this issue. We used transcranial direct-current stimulation (tDCS) to directly modulate the early stages of cortical visual processing while measuring size and distance perception with a psychophysical scaling method of magnitude estimation in a repeated-measures design. The subjects randomly received anodal, cathodal, and sham tDCS in separate sessions starting with size or distance judgment tasks...

BACKGROUND: In the histopathological diagnostics of synovitis and the synovium-like interface membrane (SLIM) the identification of crystals and crystal-like deposits and the associated inflammatory reactions play an important role. The multitude of endogenous crystals, the range of implant materials and material combinations, and the variability in the formation process of different particles explain the high morphological particle heterogeneity which complicates the diagnostic identification of diagnostic particles...

This theoretical article presents some thoughts on research and intervention's frameworks for the well-being of nursing homes' residents with cognitive deficits associated with dementia. Based on a symbolic interactionism perspective, it examines the relations between the staff (nurses, social worker, rehabilitation worker, homecare employee) and family caregivers, to maintain identity for, by and behalf of the elderly. Adopting a critical perspective on the person-centered care approach for an clearer understanding of the person faced with dementia, the authors call for an integrating framework based on two approaches: a bibliographic approach and the holistic relational prothetic approach, allowing the recognition and support of a positive identity in elders with dementia for critical actions promoting their well-being in nursing homes...

As a test of the idea of a common brain system responsible for representing all prothetic dimensions, schizophrenic patients and healthy participants took part in a line bisection task and two visual temporal bisection tasks, one using durations from 1 to 4 s and another using 30 s long specially designed stimuli (aging faces). Against expectations, schizophrenics showed better precision (smaller variable error) both in line bisection and the aging faces temporal task than healthy controls. Moreover, patients also showed less bias (smaller constant error) than controls in the aging faces task...

Continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) with a high cutoff (HCO) membrane is proposed for septic shock as a blood purification technique. The aim of this therapy is to modulate the immune response through the increase of the clearances of the inflammatory mediators as compared to standard CRRT. The use of HCO membranes in daily clinical practice is limited due to the related theoretical albumin loss. Super high-flux (SHF) membranes have an optimized cutoff and, when used in a diffusive mode, may allow for high clearances of middle molecules with limited albumin loss...
