While the geometry of aerospace assemblies is carefully controlled, for many industrial applications such as marine structures bond line thickness can vary significantly. In this study epoxy adhesive joints of different thicknesses between aluminium substrates have been characterized using physicochemical analyses (differential scanning calorimetry, DSC;(More)
INTRODUCTION Light chain deposition disease is a rare clinical entity characterized by deposition of monoclonal immunoglobulin light chains in organs. The kidneys are almost always affected, while the lung manifestations that have been reported, including nodular or diffuse disease, especially cystic lesions, are unusual. CASE REPORT We report the case of(More)
BACKGROUND Adult post-pneumonectomy syndrome can be defined as an extrinsic compression of the main bronchus or a lobe bronchus on the aorta resulting from excessive mediastinal deviation after pneumonectomy. PATIENTS Eight cases in adults are reported. The delay to symptom onset was a mean 34 months. Three patients complained of increased dyspnea and 5(More)
The quantitative and qualitative development of a heterotrophic bacterial community in seawater was studied throughout an experimental rearing of the prawnPenaeus japonicus. The maturation of juvenile prawns had been carried out for 8 months in aerated tanks of seawater without any water renewal. Bacteria (337 strains) were isolated from seawater, which had(More)
In a recent issue of the European Respiratory Journal, MASSONGO et al. [1] reported the results of a prospective study dealing with ambulatory management of primary spontaneous pneumothorax (PSP) using a pigtail catheter with one-way valve in a series of 60 consecutive patients. The authors reported a success rate of 83%, a 1-year recurrence rate of 17% and(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe two cases of Panton-Valentine leukocidin-producing Staphylococcus aureus (PVL-SA) necrotizing pneumonia treated with ECMO, and complete pulmonary evaluation at six months. METHODS Retrospective analysis of two patients presenting with severe PVL-SA pneumonia who both underwent complete respiratory function testing and chest CT scan(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE There is no consensus about the management of large spontaneous pneumothoraces. Guidelines recommend either needle aspiration or chest tube drainage and most patients are hospitalized. We assess the efficiency of ambulatory management of large spontaneous pneumothoraces with pigtail catheters. METHODS From February 2007 to January 2011,(More)
A modified Arcan fixture, which allows compression or tension to be combined with shear loads, has been designed enabling the adhesives of interest to be characterized up to failure. It has been numerically shown, on one hand, that the use of a beak close to the adhesive joint makes it possible to strongly limit the edge effects; and on the other hand, that(More)
