Abstract: Introduction: Intra-dural and extramedullary ependymomas are rare lesions. We report a clinical case confirmed by the histology supported by the neurosurgery department of Martinique University Hospital. Clinical, paraclinical and therapeutic data will be compared to a literature review. Observation: A 38-year-old patient was admitted for tetraparesthesia evolving since 3 months, associated with a left hemiparesis. The clinical examination revealed deterioration of the general condition and a tetrapyramidal syndrome. MRI of the cervical spine revealed extensive cervical extra-medullary intradural lesion of C3 to C5. The treatment had been an excisional surgery that had been subtotal in two stages, supplemented by craniospinal radiotherapy because the pathological examination had found a grade III anaplasic ependymoma. Conclusion: Because of their rarity, the treatment of these forms of ependymoma is not yet well codified.

Abstract: Intracranial hematomas, whatever its causes, represent an important disabling, and dreaded adult’s lesion. This brain’s condition has not well been studied in developing countries. The aim of our study is to overview the management of intracaranial hematomas in Abidjan. It is a retrospective analytical and descriptive study, involving patients who had been admitted and monitored by neurosurgeons for intracranial hematomas, documented in brain CT scan and had been operated on from 1 January 2007 to December 31, 2009 in Abidjan. These 30 patients were 23 men and 7 women. The average age was 58.6 years old. 90% of the patients were admitted with wakefulness issues. Half had a Glasgow score of less than 8. The brain scanner allowed identification of an intraparenchymal hematoma associated or not with a cerebral ventricle contamination in 28 patients. There were 18 external ventricle derivations with or without decompressive craniectomy and 12 independent decompressive craniectomy. The evolution was marked by 20 deaths. 10 patients (33.3%) survived. Among the survivors, the first attack and arterial hypertension were the only illness before the attack. None had blood in the membranes and all had Glasgow scores greater than or equal to 9 at admission. Around 7 out of 10 patients were operated on during the first 48 hours. The operative indications of intracranial hematomas are still the subject of controversy. By basing itself on criteria and rigorous clinical and neuroimaging selection, surgery could eventually contribute to the management of this pathology which has become very frequent in Africa.

Abstract: Objectives: The use of traditional medicine is widespread in many countries of the world. A study found that 80% of rural populations living in developing countries depend on traditional medicine for their health needs. African Traditional Medicine remains poorly documented. However, because of this large attendance by the population, African physicians cannot continue to ignore this fact. The purpose of this study was to conduct a survey among physicians to find out what they think about the introduction of the teaching of ATM in medical schools in Togo. Methods: This is a cross-sectional survey of Togolese physicians over a period of a year, from December 1st, 2016 to November 30th, 2017. An anonymous questionnaire was sent to them and retrieved after filling. The socio-demographic and the general data on traditional medicine were asked. Results: 276 physicians completed the questionnaire. Their average age was 34.41 years. These physicians exercised mainly in public hospitals?(91.3%). General practitioners were predominant (67.4%). The majority?(62.7%) of the physicians surveyed believed in the existence of the ATM and 57.6% had at least once witnessed its success. ATM teaching in medical schools was approved by 209 (75.7%) of the physicians surveyed. Conclusion: The teaching of African traditional medicine in medical schools is widely accepted by the physicians surveyed. The challenges of this teaching are important because of the lack of documentation and resource persons.

Abstract: Introduction: Many techniques are used in surgery for importing scalp losses. Microsurgery reinsertion dominates these techniques. When reinsertion is not possible, other alternatives are available. Among these is the production of the granulation tissue by diploic perforation. Many authors have reported this technic without explaining the physiological mechanisms that contribute to the genesis of this granulation tissue from the diploe. We intend to recall them. Patients and Methods: This was a series of 3 cases supported for significant loss of the scalp. The technic consisted in making trepan drill holes and carrying the outer table to the diploe by using a Doyen drill. Then fat dressings were applied every other day until the formation of granulation tissue over the entire loss of tissue surface. Observations: Three patients benefited from this technique, 2 traumatic and the other one iatrogenic after a scalp tumor excision. The missing area of traumatic wounds was estimated at 18 and 25 cm2 respectively. The third patient had a loss of scalp after surgical removal of an ulcerous-budding tumor of the scalp without any impacting the skull. Granulation tissue was obtained in all cases after an average of 30 days. There was no infection. Two patients were grafted with favorable progress and one patient went under indirect wound healing. Conclusion: The ability of the diploe to generate granulation tissue is due to its intrinsic anatomical and functional potentialities. This is a technic of last resort when conventional reconstructive surgery is contraindicated for several reasons.

Abstract: Introduction: Calcified forms with pseudo-tumor symptomatology of chronic subdural hematomas are rare. They are the result of slow bleeding over several years. The main etiology is related to the complications of the ventriculo-peritoneal shunt (VP). The purpose of this study was to recall the peculiarities and physiopathology of its pseudotumoral hematomas through 2 observations. Observation: Case 1: 8-year-old patient with a history of ventriculoperitoneal shunt at 3 months of age for congenital hydrocephalus, was admitted for functional impotence of the left-side of the body of insidious onset spreading over 9 months in a chronic headache, blurred vision and generalized seizure. CT scan showed a heterogeneous subdural hematoma of the right frontoparietal with calcifications. The patient underwent an excision by morcellation of a yellowish, friable partly calcific mass. The postoperative history was marked by a total recovery of the neurological deficit. There was no recurrence at 6 months postoperatively. Case 2: 11-year-old adolescent, treated with VP shunt at 6 months of age for post-meningitic hydrocephalus, was admitted for helmet headache, dizziness, lightheadedness and apathy progressing for 3 years. CT scan showed hypodensity of right peri-hemisphere with calcified linings, exerting a mass effect on the medial structures. The patient was given a block excision of a calcific mass with blood content. The evolution was marked by the complete resolution of seizures and hemiparesis. There was no recurrence at 6 months postoperatively. Conclusion: Calcified subdural hematomas are rare and consecutive to

Passive RFID tags based on narrow band absorbers are proposed for railway applications. The tags consist of absorbing tiles of size 30 × 30 cm2. The de-signs of these narrow band absorbers are presented based on infinite array approximation by using periodic boundary conditions. Then, the radar cross sections (RCS) of finite tiles of these designed absorbers are compared with the corresponding RCS of a conduction plate of the same size of the tiles. The difference between the RCS of the absorbing tiles and the conducting tiles corresponds to the RFID digit “1” or “0”. An experiential verification for a sample of these narrow band absorbers is presented based on measuring a fi-nite tile inside a transverse electromagnetic (TEM) cell. The design of this TEM cell is also discussed in detail.

Abstract: In recent years Jatropha curcas L. has emerged as a biofuel crop with potential for its production in marginal land with application of treated sewage water. Since this is a new crop for its profitable cultivation, additional research is needed to develop optimal management programs, including macro and micronutrients applications. A pot experiment was conducted in a Greenhouse at the National Research Center, Dokki, Cairo, Egypt, during 2010 summer to evaluate effects of varying concentrations of iron (Fe), manganese (Mn), and zinc (Zn) in irrigation water (0, 50, 100, 150, 200 and 250 ppm) on the growth, biomass production, photosynthetic pigments, and mineral nutrients status in the plants. Increasing concentrations of Fe, Mn, and Zn in irrigation water up to 150 ppm increased the biomass weight, photosynthetic pigments, and nutrient uptake by Jatropha plants. Further increase in concentrations of micronutrients showed negative effects on the above response parameters. Therefore, this study demonstrates that Jatropha can be grown under irrigation using waste water containing reasonable concentrations of micronutrients and heavy metals. This property of Jatropha provides some support for potential use of this crop for phytoremediation of metal contaminated soils. However, long term field research is needed to further verify both the above beneficial effects.

Abstract: Teaching is an exciting adventure in which both the teacher and the students participate. The Teaching Philosophy includes basic communication approaches; (a) Passion and Communication. (b) Fairness: to understand students as individuals and students. (c) Critical thinking: as lecturers should be challenged to try to deliver course materials in different ways and from different perspectives. (d) Humour and fun; Pleasing students by being approachable will make them more determined to excel in their assignments and lecturers will be inspired by their students. Communication in the teaching process help students attach concepts to their own lives, as students will apply what they learn in class to the world around them. The researcher happened to apply some approaches on random sample of Hotel-Department students, at the Faculty of Tourism and Hotels, University of Alexandra. The importance of this study lies in the new trend of developing the education process nowadays, which will require the participation of students for best results.

The antibiotic therapy has many problems, such as antibiotics resistance, hypersensitivity, direct toxicity, antibiotic-induced immunosuppresion and super-infections. This is highlighting the need for a new strategy for non-antibiotic therapy through the use of novel immunomodulators as naturally released ones (Lactoferrin). The present study investigates the potential of bovine lactoferrin (bLf), isolated from bovine milk whey, to prevent Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus), Escherichia coli (E. coli), Streptococcus agalactiae (S. agalactiae) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P. aerogenosa) growth and then evaluates its immunomodulator effect. First, bLf isolation was attempted from bovine milk whey using a cation exchange chromatography by SP-Sepharose. Second, the antimicrobial activity assays were trailed to study the antimicrobial activity of bLf. Finally, the immune effect of bLf was studied by lymphocyte transformation test. It was found that bLf was separated around molecular weight of 80 kDa and showed significant inhibitory effect against E. coli followed by P. aeruginosa, S. agalactiae and S. aureus. bLf increased lymphocyte transformations mean values in a dose dependant manner. The highest transformations mean value was determined at 50 μg/mL. In conclusion, these results suggest that bLf is a potent natural antimicrobials and immunomodulator agent.
