Abstract Catamenial epilepsy, defined as the exacerbation of the frequency of seizures in a given phase of the menstrual cycle, affects 35% of women. In women with catamenial epilepsy with perimenstrual seizures, progesterone therapy may be effective. In case of enzyme inducer AEDs, hormonal contraception is deprecated (estroprogestative or progestative pill, progestative implant, patches or hormonal rings). Because of its high malformative teratogenic potential, its possible depressive cognitive effects and the autistic risk, sodium valproate is not indicated during pregnancy. To date, the most recommended AEDs f...

Abstract Acute aortic syndromes include aortic dissections, intramural hematomas, penetrating ulcers, ruptured or contained ruptured aortic aneurysms. In presence of acute thoracic or dorsal pain, elevated D-Dimers and if acute coronary artery syndrome has been ruled out, additional imaging should be performed to detect acute aortic pathologies. Acute type A dissections involve the ascending aorta. Emergent open repair is the preferred treatment. Acute type B dissections involve the thoracic descending aorta. Endovascular treatment using thoracic stent grafts is indicated in complicated cases (malperfusion, ruptur...

Abstract About half of status epilepticus (SE) occur in patients without epilepsy.

An EEG should be performed as soon as possible in case of suspicion of non-convulsive status epilepticus, or in case of a confusional state whose origin remains unknown. The realization of a cerebral imaging is very often necessary in case of inaugural SE, as soon as the patient's condition allow it. It is also often indicated in case of known epilepsy. The main differential diagnosis of conv...

Abstract The diagnosis of de novo epilepsy is complex. An accurate diagnostic approach has to be followed based on specific key steps. Epileptic seizure or non-epileptic malaise: risk of diagnosis error around 20%. Facing a first unprovoked seizure, the practitioner has to know the risk factors specifically linked to an increase risk of seizure recurrence. In presence of these factors, an antiepileptic drug would be indicated. The first antiepileptic drug has to be highly selected according to the epilepsy type and causes but also to the patient characteristics (sex, age, comorbidities, associated drugs, professio...

Abstract Only a physician specialized in forensic medicine is allowed to process a autopsy legal. The 2011 reform of forensic medicine aimed to homogenize and enhance thanatological practices over French state territory. According to the law, biological samples withdrawn during an autopsy can't be given back to the families after analysis(art. 230-30 CPP). Respecting the human body and restoring their physical aspect are mandatory by law (art. 230-29 CPP). After a autopsy legal, dead bodies must be given back to their relatives as soon as possible.

[Management of drug-resistant epilepsy].
Abstract Epilepsy is considered as drug-resistant when seizures persist despite the administration of 2 antiepileptic drugs adapted to the patient's needs, with an effective dosage, well-tolerated, whether as a single agent or in combination. Any patient suffering from drug-resistant focal epilepsy should be evaluated at least once in a tertiary epilepsy centre to discuss the appropriateness of a pre-surgical work-up. In drug-resistant epilepsy, the determinants of quality of life are multifactorial and not exclusively linked to the seizure frequency. Anticipating the side effects of treatments is a key element du...

[Optimizing medical treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysm: Interest of vascular centers].
Abstract Diagnosis of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) at preoperative stage is increasingly frequent. It carries both a local risk of rupture and an increased global cardiovascular risk. Patients with AAA have indeed a 20 times higher risk of dying from myocardial infarction or stroke than from a ruptured aneurysm. Cardiovascular risk factors control is therefore essential, particularly smoking cessation. Treatment in cardiovascular prevention is also warranted. Seeking for atheromatous sites is needed as they determine prognosis. Evidence of the benefit of medical treatment to slow AAA growth is still lacking. In...

[Atrial natriuretic hormones and metabolic syndrome: recent advances].
Abstract Natriuretic peptides are a group of hormones including atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP), brain natriuretic peptide (BNP), C type (CNP), urodilatin and guanilyn. ANP (half-life: 2-4 min), is secreted by the atrium, BNP (half-life: 20 min) by the ventricle, CNP by the vascular endothelium, urodilatin by the kidney and guanylin by the intestine. These natriuretic peptides prevent water and salt retention through renal action, vasodilatation and hormonal inhibition of aldosterone, vasopressin and cortisol. These peptides also have a recently demonstrated metabolic effect through an increase of lipolysis, ther...

Abstract Degenerative aneurysms of the thoracic aorta are increasing in prevalence. The recognition of the decreased morbidity of this approach compared with open repair was readily apparent, as it avoided left thoracotomy, aortic cross-clamping, and left heart bypass. Repair of isolated descending thoracic aortic aneurysms using stent grafts was introduced in 1995, and in an anatomically suitable subgroup of patients with thoracic aortic aneurysm, repair with endovascular stent graft provides favorable outcomes, with decreased perioperative morbidity and mortality relative to open repair. The cornerstones of succ...

[Thoracoabdominal aneurysms].
Abstract Endovascular treatment of thoracoabdominal aneurysms: what's new? Thoracoabdominal aneurysms (T-AAA) are aortic aneurysms that involve both the thoracic and abdominal segments of the aorta and its associated visceral branches. Although the first successful open repair was reported over 50 years ago, the risks of treatment remain considerable. As the first generations of devices available for endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) were relatively simple tubes or bifurcated grafts, initial attempts to extend the benefits of EVAR to patients with T-AAA lead to "hybrid solution". Good results with hybr...

This prevalence has increased between 2000 and 2010 by 25%, especially in low/middle income countries. In France, about one million people are affected by this condition. Almost two-thirds of patients with LEAD are asymptomatic. This explains the interest of the measurement of the ankle-brachial index (ABI), an objective and harmless diagnostic tool. An ABI≤0.90 is considered as diagnostic for LEAD. The detection of symptomatic LEAD requires standardized questionnaires identifyi...

This treatment increases the claudication distance of 180% with the Gardner's protocol (30 to 60 minutes of walking at least 3 times a week, walking until appearance of a mild pain) and allows also to control the vascular risk factors. This treatment is not enough prescribed for many reasons and often requires a hospitalization in a rehabilitation centre.
