Antibodies to total histones and histone fractions H1, H2a-H4, H2b, and H3 were measured in serum samples from 61 patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), 33 with rheumatoid arthritis, 17 with systemic sclerosis, and 20 with various other diseases by use of a sensitive immunoenzymatic assay. Histone antibodies were present in 52.4% of the SLE(More)
Total body length and body segments (crown-rump length, sub-ischeal length) of 78 children with myelomeningocele were measured at regular intervals during growth for a mean duration of 4.4 years. These children were shown to have defective growth, with an increased upper segment/lower segment ratio. It was found that the higher the level of the meningocele(More)
Adrenal gland surgery needs a multidisciplinary team including endocrinologist, radiologist, anesthesiologist, and surgeon. The indications for adrenal gland surgery include hormonal secreting and non-hormonal secreting tumors. Adrenal hormonal secreting tumors present to the anesthesiologist unique challenges requiring good preoperative evaluation,(More)
The cardiac patient undergoing major urologic surgery is a complex case requiring a great attention by the anesthesiologist. Number of this group of patients having to go through this procedure is constantly increasing, due to prolonged life, increased agressiveness of surgery and increased anesthesia's safety. The anesthesiologist usually has to deal with(More)
Intramural esophageal dissection is a rare disorder characterized by extensive laceration between the mucosal and submucosal layers of the esophageal wall, but without perforation. The etiology of intramural dissection of the esophagus remains uncertain. Conservative management is usually considered adequate. Only one case of circumferential intramural(More)
Pulmonary hypertension presents a great challenge to the anesthesiologist. The number of patients suffering from pulmonary hypertension presenting for surgery is increasing because of increased age and the modern medical and surgical therapy as well. We present a case of a patient suffering from pulmonary hypertension scheduled for left radical nephrectomy(More)
The acute intrathoracic gastric volvulus is a rare condition, difficult to diagnose and treat. It consist in a abnormal organo-axial rotation over 180°, associated with gastric obstruction or strangulation. More uncommon condition is the gastric volvulus caused by a right sliding diaphragmatic hernia and dislocating the stomach, or part of it, on the right(More)
The simulation of a real experiment using a GATEmodeled clinical Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scanner, namely PHILIPS Allegro, has been carried out using the Moroccan computing Grid infrastructure, MaGrid. In order to reduce the computing time, the PET simulation tasks are split into several jobs submitted to the Grid to run simultaneously. The(More)
Liver surgery is often associated with increased likelihood of massive bleeding. The blood loss is one of major intraoperative issue the surgical team must deal with. Bleeding is usually present in cirrhotic patients but can be faced even in the patients with normal liver function undergoing liver surgery. Correction of preoperative abnormal coagulation’s(More)
CONTEXT Pre-existing renal dysfunction presents specific features that anesthesiologists must deal with. Anesthesia and renal function are connected and can interfere with each other. Induced hypotension anesthesia and the toxic effects of anesthetic drugs can further deteriorate renal function. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION Decreased renal function can prolong(More)
