PURPOSE Amongst trauma patients, early coagulopathy is common on hospital admission. No studies have evaluated the initial coagulation status in the pre-hospital setting. We hypothesise that the coagulopathic process begins at the time of trauma. We studied the on-scene and on hospital arrival coagulation profile of trauma patients. METHODS Prospective,(More)
Detection of pathogenic Naegleria fowleri in environmental water samples, which is necessary for the prevention of primary amoebic meningoencephalitis, generally requires concentrating the samples. Two concentration techniques, filtration and centrifugation, were used to study the recovery of N. fowleri, in vegetative or cystic form, that had been mixed(More)
INTRODUCTION Major trauma is characterized by an overwhelming pro-inflammatory response and an accompanying anti-inflammatory response that lead to a state of immunosuppression, as observed after septic shock. Diminished monocyte Human Leukocyte Antigen DR (mHLA-DR) is a reliable marker of monocyte dysfunction and immunosuppression. The main objective of(More)
The first case of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) related to the use of a dura mater graft of cadaveric origin was identified in 1987 and this procedure is now considered as one of the main causes of iatrogenic CJD. Although the decontamination procedure for the preparation of graft material was modified, the product was withdrawn from the market in many(More)
The use of uncontrolled deceased donors after cardiac arrest (uDDCA) has been developed in France to compensate for organ shortage. The quality of these kidneys remains unclear. We analyzed kidney graft function and histology from 27 uDDCA and compared them with kidneys from 30 extended criteria donors (ECD) and from 24 simultaneous pancreas kidney (SPK)(More)
In 1989, we reported our thoughts on the neurophysiological and anatomic aspects of pudendal nerve involvement in certain types of perinal pain. Since that time, the surgical approach has been modified. Here we report our follow-up of 40 patients with 48 operated nerves. Follow-up ranged from 6 months to 7 years and outcome revealed improvement in 67% and(More)
The potential energy surface of H(2)O-H(2) is of great importance for quantum chemistry as a test case for H(2)O-molecule interactions. It is also required for a detailed understanding of important astrophysical processes, namely, the collisional excitation of water, including the pumping of water masers and the formation of molecular hydrogen on icy(More)
Magnetic precursors of C-type shocks accelerate, compress, and heat molecular ions, modifying the kinematics and the physical conditions of the ion fluid with respect to the neutral one. Electron densities are also expected to be significantly enhanced in shock precursors. In this Letter, we present observations of strongly polar ion and neutral molecules(More)
The infratemporal fossa (ITF) is a hidden, subracranial part of the retrofacial region, which is concealed by the mandible. While its definition corresponds to bony relationships, it goes far beyond these. The classical pyramid with a lateral mandibular base and a superomedial apex, the pterygopalatine fossa, actually is a passage for the neurovascular(More)
