Suture à ciel ouvert du tendon d’Achille : récupération fonctionnelle au long cours

The objective of our study is to evaluate the functional recovery at one year of recoil after open suture of the Achilles tendon with the Achilles’ Traumatic Rupture Score.Material and methodsThis was a retrospective monocentric study of the 53 consecutive patients who had surgically treated open-cast traumatic Achilles tendon rupture between 2010 and 2016 at Clermont-Ferrand University Hospital. The primary endpoint was at least one year of functional recovery evaluated by the Achilles Tendon Rupture Score (ATRS). Secondary endpoints included time to recovery, sports recovery, surgical time, scarring, infections and pre-existence of subjective Achillian tendinopathy. The mean follow-up of the series was 47 months (13 to 77 months) with an average operating time of 3 days (0 to 19 days).ResultsWe had no loss of sight. Clinical recovery results were good with an ATRS score at 90% on average (70% to 100%). Surgical complications were only 13.2% of scarring disorders without recurrence of rupture.DiscussionThe technique of suturing the Achilles tendon is a technique that gives good functional results with a recurrence rate that remains low. However, the skin complications are not negligible and are the major complications of this technique. Early postoperative mobilization could improve the functional outcome.

From sinking islands to drought-ridden savannas, women bear an outsize burden of the global—warming crisis, largely because of gender inequalities. In many parts of the world, women hold traditional roles as the primary caregivers in families and communities, and, as the main providers of food and fuel, are more vulnerable when flooding and drought occur; the U.N. estimates 80% of those who have been displaced by climate change are women. Given their position on the front line of the climate-change battle, women are uniquely situated to be agents of change—to help find ways to mitigate the causes of global warm...

One of the more eye-catching of the moths I’ve seen during more than a year of mothing  goes by the name of Burnished Brass (Diachrysia chrysitis). This is also an owlet moth, one of the noctuidae. It rests with its wings folded into a tent shape as many of them do, but what makes it stand out is that, as its name would suggest, it looks metallic. It shimmers in the sunlight and as it begins to warm it set its wings aquiver to speed up the process, revving its engines, as it were, before it can fly away into the garden shrubbery to vanish from sight. But, not before a quick photoshoot, of course. Burnished Brass...

Although Nd2O3 incorporation obviously decreased the specific surface area, 7 wt% Nd2O3 modified CZA (fresh CZAN7) also exhibited the best activity, the temperature for 50% soot conversion (T50) over which is 25 °C lower than that over fr...

Abstract Evolutionary biologists have long trained their sights on adaptation, focusing on the power of natural selection to produce relative fitness advantages while often ignoring changes in absolute fitness. Ecologists generally have taken a different tack, focusing on changes in abundance and ranges that reflect absolute fitness while often ignoring relative fitness. Uniting these perspectives, we articulate various causes of relative and absolute maladaptation and review numerous examples of their occurrence. This review indicates that maladaptation is reasonably common from both perspectives, yet often in co...

Photo provided by United Hatzalah An EMT in Israel administers an EpiPen to a young girl. There is a worldwide shortage of EpiPens, which is affecting individuals who have severe allergies that can cause anaphylactic reactions. The EpiPen is an auto-injection delivery system that administers a dose of adrenaline hormones which increases the heart rate and blood pressure and reverses the swelling of the airways. In cases of severe anaphylactic reactions, it can slow the allergic reaction and reverse its effects long enough to allow first responders to arrive or for a person to get to the hospital to receive f...

Parts of the northern United States from Montana to northern New England could get a glimpse of the Northern Lights over Labor Day Weekend, space weather forecasters say. The Northern Lights, or the Aurora Borealis, are a luminous and sometimes colorful display seen in the night sky. They occur when charged particles from the sun interact with gasses in Earth’s atmosphere. Typically, they are only visible in higher-latitude regions, including Alaska, Scandinavia and Iceland, and even then only in the darker winter months. But a geomagnetic storm predicted for this weekend could result in aurora sightings further sout...

“The most fundamental harm we can do to ourselves is to remain ignorant by not having the courage to look at ourselves honestly and gently.” – Pema Chödrön All my life I’ve chased after success, as I was encouraged to do from a very young age. When I was six, my father got me my first proper study desk as a gift for getting into a ‘good’ school. The type of desk that towered over a little six-year-old—complete with bookshelves and an in-built fluorescent light. In the middle of the shelf frame stuck a white sticky label inscribed with my father’s own handwriting in ...
