Physical effort stimulates the reninangiotensin system (RAS). We studied the effect of an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACE inhibitor) in a double-blind placebo-controlled study, on eight volunteers undergoing physical stress on an ergometric bicycle. The effects of captopril (C) (50 mg, three times daily for 3 days) on arterial pressure (AP), O2(More)
The aim of this study was to estimate the characteristic exercise intensity $$\dot W$$ CL which produces the maximal steady state of blood lactate concentration (MLSS) from submaximal intensities of 20 min carried out on the same day and separated by 40 min. Ten fit male adults [maximal oxygen uptake $$\dot V{\text{O}}_{\text{2}} $$ max 62 (SD 7) ml · min−1(More)
Epilepsy is, above all tropical, moreover, very african in its frequency and gravity. Data on the prevalence of epilepsy shows it to be two or three times more prevalent in tropical zones than in industrialized countries in non tropical areas, however it is rare to find data on the incidence and prognosis of epilepsy in sub-Saharan Africa. It is difficult(More)
Laënnec invented the stethoscope in 1816 and published a treatise on auscultation in 1819. We then had to wait until the 1950s to observe development of modern devices and methods of recording and signal-processing, which allowed objective studies of lung sounds in time and frequency fields. Tracheobronchial sounds generated by ventilation originate in the(More)
Present levels of training loads--which can exceed thirty hours a week for high level sportsmen--expose to overwork then to overtraining syndrome and finally to temptation of doping. At the same time testing techniques improve, particularly exercise tests with a linearly increasing load, and the follow-up of training effects on physical fitness provides(More)
Data on the individual and collective impact of chronic airflow obstruction at a population level are scarce. In a nationwide survey, dyspnoea, quality of life and missed working days were compared between subjects with and without spirometrically diagnosed chronic airflow obstruction. Subjects aged > or =45 yrs were recruited in French health prevention(More)
Streptococcus pneumoniae is an important cause of acute otitis media (AOM). The aim of this study was to evaluate trends in antibiotic resistance and circulating serotypes of pneumococci isolated from middle ear fluid of French children with AOM during the period 2001-2011, before and after the introduction of the PCV-7 (2003) and PCV-13 (2010) vaccines.(More)
OBJECTIVE To estimate the impact of obesity on cervical ripening with prostaglandin E2 (PGE2). MATERIALS AND METHOD A retrospective study compared the cervical ripening efficiency of PGE2 on patients with BMI above 30 kg/m(2) and normal weight patients with BMI between 20 kg/m(2) and 25 kg/m(2). In case of a Bishop score (≤3), a dinoprostone tampon was(More)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Multiple technologies have developed the endovascular approach to MCA aneurysms. We assess the safety and the efficacy of a systematic endovascular approach in nonselected patients with MCA aneurysms and determine predictors of treatment outcomes. MATERIALS AND METHODS We analyzed data collected between January 2007 and January 2012(More)
