AIM To assess the extent to which bone marrow scintigraphy (BMS) makes the interpretation of leucocyte scintigraphy (LS) easier and improves its diagnostic value. METHODS Seventy-three 111In LSs, 99mTc hydroxymethylene diphosphonate bone scintigraphies (BSs) and 99mTc sulfur colloid BMSs were performed in 60 patients with suspected infection related to a(More)
Some variations of the cerebral arterial circle of Willis, such as an inter-optic course of the anterior cerebral artery are exceedingly rare. Imaging of very rare anatomical features may be of interest. In a 67-year-old male individual, the unique precommunicating part of the left anterior cerebral artery was found to course between both optic nerves.(More)
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common abnormal heart rhythm and contributes to cardiac morbidity and mortality. Electrophysiological studies with pacing have shown that AF is initiated by ectopic beats localized in the pulmonary vein (PV) walls. The aim of this work was to look for some anatomical or histological particularities to explain these(More)
The authors studied 38 cases of degenerative lesions of the plantar fascia which were treated surgically between 1989 and 1999. MRI showed chronic fasciitis in eight cases and an old rupture of the plantar fascia in 30 cases. Surgical treatment, which was performed in all cases after failure of conservative treatment of several months duration, combined(More)
In literature, many controversies exist about courses and terminology of the distal medial striate artery (DMSA) or recurrent artery first described by Heubner near 1872. The purpose of this study was to define the accurate anatomy of this artery, to help the practitioners during surgery of the anterior cerebral–anterior communicating arteries (ACA–ACoA)(More)
In the current literature, there is a lack of detailed map of the origin, course and relationships of the medial tentorial artery (MTA) of Bernasconi–Cassinari often implicated in various diseases such as dural arteriovenous fistulas of the cranial base, stenotic lesions of the ICA, saccular infraclinoid intracavernous aneurysms and tentorial meningiomas.(More)
The authors report the clinical history of a patient having presented a cutaneous mucormycosis at the waning of a traumatic dilapidation post of the left lower limb. Mucormycosis is an opportunistic fungal infection due to fungi of the group of mucorales present in the environment. There are various clinical forms of the disease; it occurs generally in a(More)
BACKGROUND The facial artery perforator flap was developed to perform more accurate reconstruction of perioral and nasal alar defects. This technique allows tailor-made reconstruction and shifting from the traditional two-stage procedure to a one-stage technique. Cadaveric studies have described the number, location, and size of facial artery perforators.(More)
UNLABELLED The main characteristics of clindamycin are adequate for treatment of osteoarticular infections (OAI): good bone diffusion, broad spectrum of antibacterial activity and oral use. METHOD A number of 61 patients was included in an observational retrospective study of efficacy and tolerance. RESULTS Prosthetic infections accounted for 50.8% of(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the biomechanical properties of the knee meniscus and to relate them to its ultrastructure. The knee joint menisci are semicircular, fibrocartilaginous structures interposed between the femoral and tibial condyles. For a long time, they were considered to be embryologic vestiges. This study describes the response(More)
