Complex regional pain syndrome type I (CRPS-I) is a common and disabling disorder affecting a peripheral limb, usually developing after a trauma to an extremity. CRPS-I is characterised by presence of spontaneous pain, allodynia and hyperalgesia, disproportionate to the inciting event and by a variety of autonomic disturbances and trophic abnormalities.

With the aging of the population worldwide, osteoporosis and osteoporotic fractures are becoming a serious health care issue in the Western world. Although less frequent than in women, osteoporosis in men is a relatively common problem. Hip and vertebral fractures are particularly relevant, being associated with significant mortality and disability. Since(More)
—We consider the problem of compressing memoryless binary data with or without side information at the decoder. We review the parity-and the syndrome-based approaches and discuss their theoretical limits, assuming that there exists a virtual binary symmetric channel between the source and the side information, and that the source is not necessarily(More)
BACKGROUND The role of bisphosphonates (BPs) in the management of patients with hypercalciuria (HC) associated with osteoporosis is still uncertain. The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of alendronate and indapamide alone or in combination on bone mineral density (BMD) and 24-h urinary calcium excretion (24-CaU) in post-menopausal women with HC(More)
—We consider compressing binary data with or without (binary) side information at the decoder. We review the parity-and the syndrome-based approaches to the problem and discuss the reutilization of off-the-shelf turbo encoding and decoding algorithms in either case. We take a factor-graph-based approach in order to directly devise the optimal maximum a(More)
Introduction Les départements français d'Amérique, Guadeloupe et Martinique, subissent une pollution environnementale par le chlordécone, un insecticide organochloré employé par le passé dans la culture de la banane. Son usage a entrainé une pollution, toujours présente, des sols et des cours d'eaux conduisant à une contamination de certaines ressources(More)
