BACKGROUND: Bioelectrical Impedance Assessment (BIA) is one of the main tools to measure body composition. BIA is recommended in fasting and after 60 minutes of rest; however, this cannot always be guaranteed in healthcare practice. OBJECTIVES: To establish the reliability of the body composition parameters assessed with BIA under different physiological conditions: fast + rest, fast + no-rest and no-fast + no-rest in healthy volunteers. METHODS: Transversal study including 25 healthy volunteers aged 18-34 (12 men, 13 women)...

OBJECTIVES: During the 2009 influenza A (H1N1) pandemic, Argentina's Hospital Nacional Profesor Alejandro Posadas, a referral center in the capital province of Buenos Aires, treated a large urban patient population. Beginning in April, after severe influenza had been reported in North America but before any suspected cases of H1N1 had been reported in Argentina, the authors formed a pandemic planning committee to direct our hospital's response. An important strategy of the management team was to create a single daily monitoring tool that could integrate multiple information sources...

There is a specific vascularization of the pisiform bone depending on the cubito-dorsal artery, branch of the ulnar artery. The vascularized pisiform bone may be transferred in place of the excised lunatum. The aims are to decrease pain when keeping the mobility, to replace a dead bone, to maintain the distance between scaphoid and triquetrum and radius and capitatum, by preventing the carpal collapse. X-rays and a MRI are performed. The vascularized transfer is indicated at stage III of the usual classifications...

BACKGROUND: A chikungunya virus outbreak of unprecedented magnitude is currently ongoing in Indian Ocean territories. In Réunion Island, this alphavirus has already infected about one-third of the human population. The main clinical symptom of the disease is a painful and invalidating poly-arthralgia. Besides the arthralgic form, 123 patients with a confirmed chikungunya infection have developed severe clinical signs, i.e., neurological signs or fulminant hepatitis. METHODS AND FINDINGS: We report the nearly complete genome sequence of six selected viral isolates (isolated from five sera and one cerebrospinal fluid), along with partial sequences of glycoprotein E1 from a total of 127 patients from Réunion, Seychelles, Mauritius, Madagascar, and Mayotte islands...

Psychological adjustment was assessed in a sample of 525 female and 191 male adoptees. Analyses were conducted by gender; by search status, i.e., those who had never searched, those who were searching, and those who had made contact with their biological parents; and by history of mental health service utilization. Compared to normative data, the sample reported significantly higher levels of psychological maladjustment; only women adoptees scored higher on a scale measuring anger. Overall, adoptees' scores were elevated but did not approach levels typical of outpatient populations...

The authors describe 68 articular fractures of the lower end of the radius in which a postero-medial accessory fragment was displaced. They have made a study of the anatomy and fibrous connections of the fragment and conclude that this fragment is best maintained reduced by a transverse pin passed from the ulna towards the radius. They attach great importance in such fractures to injury to the triangular radio-ulnar ligament and to inferior radio-ulnar dislocation.

As a continuation of our studies concerning the structure and fetal development of the human carpal articular disc (KAUER, 1968, 1975, 1976) we have investigated the disc-homologue in the Gibbon. For this purpose we have used the serial sectioned hand of a late-fetal specimen. The stratigraphical position of the os Daubentonii has been established comparing the situation in the Gibbon with that of the human ulno-carpal region. The homology presumed by others of the os Daubentonii with the cartilaginous primordium frequently found in the developing carpal articular disc in man, was found questionable...
