Five dominant responses of physicians were identified and discussed in detail...

Two recently published randomized clinical trials assessing the effectiveness of an intensive follow-up strategy (with periodic clinical examination, mammography, bone scan, liver echography, chest-X-ray and laboratory tests) over a minimalist one (including only periodic clinical examination and mammography) failed to show a significant advantage for the more intensive policy...

The severity rate of industrial accidents is calculated so as to make possible their statistical processing. The application to the case of a mechanical plant is presented in order to estimate the severity of the industrial accident risk. Such risk increases with the age of the accident victims, with great climatic changes, with the passing of non-stop working hours, and is due above all to limb contusions (the upper are the more affected) as a consequence of struck against or by objects, of the falls of objects and persons, of getting caught between objects and of hitting against stationary objects, in increasing order of severity; the decrease in the rate with the passing of week days can be indicative of difficulties in the psyco-physical adjustment to the work place...
