Utilizing an ionized gas (plasma) to achieve sterilization is an alternative to conventional sterilization means as far as sterilization of heat-sensitive materials and innocuity of sterilizing agents are concerned. The literature on plasma sterilization is reviewed. A major issue of plasma sterilization is the respective roles of UV photons and reactive(More)
We report a case of extradural abscess after acute mastoiditis in an 8-years-old boy. The clinic diagnostic of an intracranial complication is difficult. The most common present symptoms are fever, otalgia and otorrhea but are not specific. Neurologic symptoms are suggestive signs of an intracranial complication. We believe that, in acute mastoiditis(More)
UNLABELLED Neoadjuvant chemotherapy in hypopharyngeal cancer globally improves survival, but some patients do not respond to chemotherapy and adjuvant therapy is delayed. Prediction of response to chemotherapy may allow physicians to optimize planned treatment. The aim of this study was to compare treatment response assessed early with (11)C-methionine PET(More)
This study was based on 34 recurrent laryngeal nerve dissections after arterial casting with red-colored latex. The aim was to provide specific information about the perineural microvasculature. This study established the following points: 1. a great anatomic variability does exist; 2. the laryngeal nerve is usually in relation to the posterior branch of(More)
Large-eddy simulations (LES) of flow over a low-speed highly cambered airfoil at small negative incidence is performed using two different flow solvers, CFX and Fluent, on a similar multi-block structured mesh. They mimic recent aeroacoustic experiments performed in the small anechoic wind tunnel at the University of Siegen. Focus has been put on the(More)
OBJECTIVE We report a case of cricoid chondroma, underlining the difficulty in establishing a precise differential diagnosis between chondroma and low-grade chondrosarcoma of the larynx. MATERIAL AND METHODS A 48-year-old woman developed inspiratory dyspnea. The final diagnosis was cricoid chondroma. We reviewed our case and data in the literature on(More)
We report a case of harlequin fetus. This very rare cutaneous malformation is a severe form of congenital ichthyosis. This disorder is due to an inborn error of epidermal keratinization. Malformations of ears, nose, and hypoplasia of fingers or nails are seen. This affection is most often lethal. Nous rapportons un cas de fœtus arlequin. Cette malformation(More)
INTRODUCTION Despite its high incidence and severe morbidity, the physiopathogenesis of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is still unknown. Here, we looked for early anomalies in AIS which are likely to be the cause of spinal deformity and could also be targeted by early treatments. We focused on the vestibular system, which is suspected of acting in(More)
Epistaxis is a common and in most cases benign event. Severe or recurrent epistaxis, however, can present therapeutic problems. Forty-five cases of supraselective embolization in intractable epistaxis are reported. The authors' success rate of 97%, similar to the success rates reported in the literature, confirms the effectiveness of this technique.(More)
OBJECTIVE This study was performed for knowledge about the vascular supply of the nasal fossa and a description of the site of division and number of branches of the sphenopalatine artery. STUDY DESIGN This study was performed on 10 fresh nonembalmed cadavers. Anatomic variations of nasal fossa arteries were studied. METHODS First, 10 cephalic anatomic(More)
