A 6-months pregnant woman suffering from severe tetanus was successfully treated with intrathecal baclofen. She delivered a premature but healthy neonate, and was safely discharged home 40 days after the onset of symptoms of tetanus. Specific aspects of intrathecal baclofen therapy in the pregnant woman are discussed.
The denitrification process and the associated nitrous oxide (N2O) production in soils have been poorly documented, especially in terms of soil profiles; most work on denitrification has concentrated on the upper layer (first 20 cm). The objectives of this study were to examine the origin of N2O emission and the effects of in situ controlling factors on… (More)
Tetanus continues to be a cause of high mortality in developing countries, where resources for muscle relaxation and respiratory support are not readily available. Baclofen, a GABAB receptor agonist, directly restores physiologic inhibition of alpha motoneuron, that is blocked by tetanus toxin. Its use has been suggested at high dosage by intrathecal (i.t.)… (More)
Nitrous oxide is produced in soils and sediments essentially through the processes of nitrification and denitrification, although several rival processes could be competing. This study was undertaken in order to better understand the controlling factors of nitrification, denitrification and associated N2O production as well as the contribution of these two… (More)
The authors analyse a series of 60 cases of mandibular prognathism treated using the technique of Trauner-Obwegeser modified by Dalpont. The last 40 cases involved no surgical procedure as far as the musculature was concerned and no difference in the course of bone healing was noted.
The Orgeval watershed (104 km(2)) is a long-term experimental observatory and research site, representative of rural areas with intensive cereal farming of the temperate world. Since the past few years, we have been carrying out several studies on nitrate source, transformation and transfer of both surface and groundwaters in relation with land use and… (More)
The authors report the case of a myoblastoma with multiple successive and rare localisations: maxilla, cheek, lymphatics, lungs, liver and hyoid bone, with a fatal course over 28 months. They recall the possible malignancy of this tumour even in the absence of histological criteria and suggest its classification on bases which at present are only clinical.
