We have examined the effects of two types of insulin therapy (continuous i.v. infusion (group A: 1.25 u. h-1) and direct i.v. bolus administration of 10 u. every 2 h (group B: 10 u./2 h)) on the metabolic and endocrine responses to surgery in 60 adult diabetic patients undergoing general anaesthesia for elective procedures. Blood glucose concentrations were(More)
In vitro, halogenated agents reduce the pulmonary vasoconstrictor response to alveolar hypoxia in isolated perfused lungs. However, studies in intact animals have been less convincing. The aim of the present study was to assess the effect of sevoflurane on hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction (HPV) in anaesthetized piglets using the pressure/cardiac index(More)
Among 138 patients treated with coronary angioplasty during acute myocardial infarction (AMI), 35 (25%) had stent implantation. Mean age was 56 years and 83% were men. Mean onset of chest pain was 6.0 +/- 5.3 hours, and previous thrombolytic therapy was given to 10 patients (29%). Infarct location was anterior in 19 (54%), inferior in 14 (40%), and lateral(More)

85 cases of measles with complications have been reported in Agades (Niger) from September 1983 to March 1985. The patients were all adults more than 15 years of age. Such complications are more frequent during winter season. The disease is superposable to the one observed in children: same course, same types of complications (superinfection,(More)
The case is reported of a 44-year-old European who was bitten on the foot in Djibouti, probably by an African viper. Unusually, there wasn't any pain, nor any cardiovascular collapse nor any local swelling. An oedema of the lower limb started the day afterwards. Two days after the bite, the patient presented a generalized haemorrhagic syndrome, which led to(More)
Nutritional care improves quality of life (QOL) in head and neck cancer patients treated with radiotherapy. The aim of our study was to determine whether intensive nutritional care (INC) would further improve QOL. In addition to a control group based on European and American guidelines, patients included in the INC group received six meetings with a(More)
We have evaluated insulin requirements and the relationship between hormonal variables, changes in blood glucose and insulin requirements in insulin-dependent diabetic patients undergoing two degrees of severity of surgery: minor (vitrectomy) and major (gastrectomy, bowel resection, hip replacement). The study began just before induction and ended 2 h after(More)

A six years old child, string by a Leiurus quinquestriatus scorpion (Buthidae fam), got, 15 hours after having been string, consciousness disorders and convulsions within a feverish context. The general status recovered rapidly, but disorders of upper functions and a total blindness both occurred. The latter disappeared in few weeks time; central disorders(More)
