In this study we analyzed gene expression in 3T3-F442A pre-adipocyte cells that differentiate in the presence of micro-molar arsenate concentration. Two concentrations of arsenite (As2O3, 0.25 micromol/L and 0.5 micromol/L) were applied for three days with and without insulin (170 nmol/L) and gene expressions were evaluated by quantitative RT-PCR. The genes(More)
OBJECTIVE Complex regional pain syndrome type I (CRPS-I) is now considered as a central nervous system disease with peripheral manifestations. CRPS-I may result from a mismatch between sensory input and motor output leading to a disorganization of motor programming in cortical structures. According to previous studies in the field of motor control, one(More)
Capillary malformations do not demand mostly any therapeutics. For aesthetic reasons, family or child can demand a treatment to ease even to remove the unsightly character of the lesion. In this context, the means employees must be simple and not engender aftereffects more unaesthetic than the lesion. The pulsed dye laser fulfils perfectly this conditions(More)
Our aim was to investigate the corticospinal tracts (CST) in motor neurone disease, using MRI, and to correlate findings with clinical data. We studied 31 patients with amyotrophic (ALS) and eight with primary lateral sclerosis (PLS). The signal from the CST was classified into four grades on T2-weighted images, and compared to T2-weighted images of 37(More)
INTRODUCTION Phalangeal neck fractures are unusual, occurring mainly in children. This study aims at assessing the results of treatment of this type of fracture and presents a new technique for displaced fractures namely intrafocal pinning. PATIENTS AND METHODS From January 2001 to January 2007, we treated 49 children (32 boys and 17 girls) with 52(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY Fingertip crush injuries are frequent in young children. Rigorous care is required to avoid esthetic and functional sequelae, but treatment is often difficult. We report our experience focusing on simple therapeutic principles useful for everyday practice in the emergency room. MATERIAL AND METHODS We reviewed retrospectively 91(More)
Children with severe congenital blepharoptosis are at risk of developing amblyopia. For this reason, ptosis repair is indicated as soon as the diagnosis is made. Frontalis suspension of the upper lid is an effective and simple method of treatment. This study reports on the long-term outcome of frontalis suspension surgery for congenital ptosis using(More)
Hibernoma is a rare benign tumour of brown fat. In most cases it presents as a voluminous slow-growing mass in the regions where remnants of brown fat can remain in adults. We report a case of a hibernoma on the thigh and present the diagnostic and therapeutic elements of this type of tumour, whose differential diagnosis of liposarcoma.
INTRODUCTION Delayed sternal closure after paediatric open heart procedure is often necessary. The risk of delayed sternal closure is infection: superficial wound or sternal and mediastinal infection. The incidence of sternal wound infection reported in the literature varies from 0.5 to 10%. The mortality for poststernotomy deep sternal infection continues(More)
Cerebral palsy has a complex and multifactorial etiology. The management of the upper limb aims to improve function, hygiene and cosmesis in many patients. Surgical treatment need a good and repeated clinical examination before. The functional surgery has a lot of procedures on the elbow, the wrist, the fingers and the thumb. These procedures include the(More)
