A case of pathological hip fracture associated with an epithelioid hemangioma is reported. Epithelioid hemangioma is a benign tumor, rarely localized in a bone. When the tumor is found on the skeleton, it generally involves a long bone. X-ray does not permit the differenciation of epithelioid hemangioma from other, malignant, vascular tumors. Therefore, the(More)
Magnetospheric banded chorus is enhanced whistler waves with frequencies ωr < Ωe, where Ωe is the electron cyclotron frequency, and a characteristic spectral gap at ωr ≃ Ωe∕2. This paper uses spacecraft observations and two-dimensional particle-in-cell simulations in a magnetized, homogeneous, collisionless plasma to test the hypothesis that banded chorus(More)
OBJECTIVE The aetiology of OA is not fully understood although several adipokines such as leptin are known mediators of disease progression. Since leptin levels were increased in synovial fluid compared to serum in OA patients, it was suggested that joint cells themselves could produce leptin. However, exact mechanisms underlying leptin production by(More)
We report the case of a 41-year-old man admitted for lower limb and liver trauma following a car accident. Surgical repair of a tibial fracture was performed under general anesthesia 5 days after admission while the liver injury was managed conservatively. At the time of tourniquet inflation, the patient presented a pulmonary embolism. Low-molecular-weight(More)
The aim of the study was to control the in vivo localisation of implanted cells in cell-based therapies. Labelling cells with 111indium-oxine is one of the most interesting methods proposed. We evaluated this method in the setting of autologous osteoblast implantation in nonunion fractures. An in vitro study of osteoblasts was conducted after(More)
AIMS The objective of this study is to characterize, based on clinical, radiographic, health-related, quality-of-life-related, and demographic variables, the profile of a large, homogeneous, cohort of patients undergoing knee or hip arthroplasty, in a public hospital. Current regulatory guidelines for structure-modifying agent are not clear regarding hard(More)
Aging of the population represents an ubiquitous and ever-growing phenomenon in the developed countries. Geriatric traumatology is a constant-developping sub-speciality of orthopedics and traumatology; it deals with the specific medical problems developed by older patients when affected by muskuloskeletal trauma. The optimal treatment of this pathology as(More)
