The damage to the intervalvular fibrous trigone (IVFT) by infective endocarditis makes combined aortic and mitral valve replacement difficult. We performed Manouguian's double valve replacement for such a case and obtained a good result. A 81-year-old male underwent emergency operation due to active prosthetic valve endocarditis. He had a history of receiving combined aortic and mitral valve replacement because of active infective endocarditis at the age of 74 and redo aortic valve replacement 3 years after that...

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether anthropometric and biochemical features differ in in vitro fertilization (IVF) children conceived via fresh (IVFF) or thawed (IVFT) embryo transfer compared with naturally conceived controls. DESIGN: A cross-sectional controlled study. SETTING: University clinical research unit. PATIENT(S): Healthy prepubertal children (3.5-11.0 years), singletons, born at term (>37 weeks), who were either naturally conceived (controls; n = 94) or IVF children conceived via the transfer of a fresh (IVFF; n = 72) or thawed (IVFT; n = 43) embryo...

BACKGROUND: While intrauterine insemination (IUI), a simple, inexpensive and non-invasive technique, is the most used assisted reproduction technology (ART) worldwide, the risk of major birth defects following IUI is paradoxically not well documented. METHODS: Retrospective cohort study performed in Burgundy, France, over a 9-year period which consisted of the cross analysis of two prospective databases, the Burgundy perinatal network database and the database of the assisted conception units in Burgundy...

Composite defects of the tibia following open fractures are among the most challenging of clinical problems. The aim of this study is to report the results of treatment using a free flap procedure followed by ipsilateral vascularized fibular transposition (IVFT) for reconstruction of composite tibial defects. Ten patients underwent a free flap procedure followed by IVFT and plating. The mean size of the flaps was 12.1 × 6 cm(2). The mean length of bone defect was 5.35 cm. IVFT were performed 4.3 months following the free flap...

Record-keeping is one of the legal and professional responsibilities of nurses. This study aims to determine the record-keeping behavior of nurses regarding intravenous fluid treatment (IVFT). The study was conducted with 150 nurses working in adult clinics of a 936-bed university hospital. The most frequently fulfilled record-keeping behaviors were solution type, total solution amount, and date of treatment. The least frequent fulfilled behaviors were the diagnosis of patients and the time of passage of medication added to the solution...

Segmental defects of the tibia present a challenging problem. This report demonstrates the use of an ipsilateral vascularized fibula transfer (IVFT) in a patient with a 15 cm tibial bone defect following tumor resection. Bone union was achieved within 6 months, and 8 years after the surgery the patient has full knee flexion and extension and is still employed in the same vocation as he was prior to surgery. With current interest in reconstructive techniques such as vascularized fibular grafts, segmental allografts, and bone transportation, the technique of ipsilateral vascularized fibula transfer has become neglected...

OBJECTIVE: To obtain the linear correlation between Doppler flowmetry rates and follicular development and the observed embryo growth in ovarian hyperstimulation cycles in the IVFTE/ICSI results. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A prospective and observational study including 29 patients was carried out. The ovarian reserve was determined--by the ovaries morphometric conditions--as well as basal FSH. These were correlated with pulsatility rates (PR), resistance rates (RR), and the systole/diastole ratio (S/D) and the maximum flow rate (TAmax), using a USG pulse-colour Doppler...

The ipsilateral and contralateral fibulae have been used as a vascularised bone graft for loss of tibial bone usually by methods which have involved specialised microvascular techniques to preserve or re-establish the blood supply. We have developed a method of tibialisation of the fibula using the Ilizarov fixator system, ipsilateral vascularised fibular transport (IVFT), and have used it in five patients with massive loss of tibial bone after treatment of an open fracture, infected nonunion or chronic osteomyelitis...

Eight patients had nine ipsilateral vascularized fibular transpositions (IVFTs) in the period 1978-1987. The procedure, which involves no microvascular anastomosis, was done for difficult problems of the tibia including two long-standing posttraumatic nonunions, three allograft nonunions after tumor surgery, and four segmental tibial defects also after tumor surgery. The average duration of problems before surgery was 3.5 years, and the patients averaged 3.1 procedures before IVFT. The patients were followed for an average of 52...
