A nucleic acid-targeted photochemical treatment (PCT) using amotosalen HCl (S-59) and ultraviolet A (UVA) light was developed to inactivate viruses, bacteria, protozoa, and leukocytes in platelet components. We conducted a controlled, randomized, double-blinded trial in thrombocytopenic patients requiring repeated platelet transfusions for up to 56 days of(More)
The movements of flexion of the digital articular chain are dependent upon a vast functional complex comprising the long flexor tendons, their antagonist long extensor tendons, and the coupled action of the interosseous and lumbricales muscles. Based on theoretical biomechanical data backed up by experimental investigation, the authors emphasize the(More)
A precise knowledge of the sectorial anatomy of the liver and its variations is essential in order to be able to localize lesions in the parenchyma and to guide segmental resection of the liver. The hepatic systematization proposed by Couinaud and the nomenclature of the segments, which are numbered from I to VIII, are of obvious practical value and are(More)
The main neurovascular structures related to the medial wall of the orbit were studied in 70 orbits after injection of the orbital arterial bed with latex dye. The position, anatomical relations and variations of the ophthalmic and ethmoidal arteries and trochlear and nasociliary nerves are described. Some differences were noted in comparison to classical(More)
