BACKGROUND The severity of envenoming from Bothrops lanceolatus is determined by the development of cerebral, myocardial or pulmonary infarctions, and occasionnaly by serious local envenoming. Introduction of specific antivenom has resulted in a dramatic improvement in the prognosis of this envenoming. Against this background, we report 3 recent cases of(More)
INTRODUCTION The cerebral venous system is poorly known and is best appreciated based on macroscopic anatomical considerations. We present an anatomical and immunohistochemical study to better define the morphological characteristics of the junction between the inferior cortical veins and the transversal sinuses. MATERIAL AND METHODS Sixteen cadaveric(More)
A variational multiscale method (VMM) which incorporates the mechanics of crack growth (displacement discontinuity) in a laminated fiber reinforced composite is implemented within a standard finite element (FE) framework. Traction-separation laws that act across the crack faces are built into the framework and these are activated during the process of crack(More)
Fentanyl citrate or morphine chlorhydrate are injected intramuscularly at increasing doses to patients suffering from intense pain in the facial or trigeminal nerves territory: --fentanyl = 0.0015, 0.003, 0.006 mg/kg; --morphine = 0.100, 0.150, 0.200 mg/kg. The clinically observed side-effects are noted at regular time during the three hours following the(More)
In the case of a conscious man suffering from a painful injury in the facial and trigeminal nerves, the administration of intra-muscular injections of increasing doses of morphine and sulfentanil provokes constant analgesia in direct proportion to the administered dose. The admitted dosages for each product are as follows. M = 0,100, 0,150, 0,200 mg/kg S =(More)
