How to Reduce Unnecessary Invasive Angiograms When Patients Are Initially Evaluated by Coronary Computed Tomography?  [PDF]
Edouard Cheneau, Brunot Vahda, Noémie Resseguier, Laurent Bernard, Annamaria Molon, Roch Giorgi, Dimitri Panagides
Advances in Computed Tomography (ACT) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/act.2013.21003
Abstract: Purpose:When Coronary Computed Tomography (CCT) detects coronary obstruction, patients are regularly referred to invasive angiogram. With higher sensitivity than specificity, CCT might induce unnecessary angiograms (“false positive CCT”). We sought to determine the patients and CCT findings associated with false positive CCT. Methods: Patients were prospectively referred to CCT with a 64-slice CT scan for suspected CAD. Inclusion criteria were: 1) clinically suspected angina pectoris; or 2) suspected silent ischemia on resting EKG. Exclusion criteria were acute coronary syndrome and non sinus rhythm. Invasive coronary angiogram (ICA) was performed on the basis of CCT findings (stenosis >50%). Analysis was performed on a per patient basis. Results: Out of 702 patients, 228 had suspected significant stenosis by CCT and ICA was performed in 176 patients. Coronary stenosis >50% was not confirmed by ICA in 44 (25%). In multivariate analysis, we observed that atypical angina (OR 3.63,CI 1.43-9.66), silent ischemia (OR 5.11, CI 1.89-14.6) and number of suspected stenosed arteries by CCT (OR 1.81, CI 1.15-2.94) were independently predictive of false positive CCT (p < 0.05). Lesion location and coronary plaque characteristics did not impact on CCT accuracy. Conclusions:Performing CCT for atypical angina or silent ischemia is associated with higher rate of unnecessary invasive coronary angiograms. We failed to identify lesions characteristics prone to be “false positive” of CCT.

Malaria Journal , 2011,
Abstract: Background The effectiveness of anti-vectorial malaria protective measures in travellers and expatriates is hampered by incorrect compliance. The objective of the present study was to identify the determinants of compliance with anti-vectorial protective measures (AVPMs) in this population that is particularly at risk because of their lack of immunity. Methods Compliance with wearing long clothing, sleeping under insecticide-impregnated bed nets (IIBNs) and using insect repellent was estimated and analysed by questionnaires administered to 2,205 French military travellers from 20 groups before and after short-term missions (approximately four months) in six tropical African countries (Senegal, Ivory Coast, Chad, Central African Republic, Gabon and Djibouti). For each AVPM, the association of "correct compliance" with individual and collective variables was investigated using random-effect mixed logistic regression models to take into account the clustered design of the study. Results The correct compliance rates were 48.6%, 50.6% and 18.5% for wearing long clothing, sleeping under bed nets and using repellents, respectively. Depending on the AVPM, correct compliance was significantly associated with the following factors: country, older than 24 years of age, management responsibilities, the perception of a personal malaria risk greater than that of other travellers, the occurrence of life events, early bedtime (i.e., before midnight), the type of stay (field operation compared to training), the absence of medical history of malaria, the absence of previous travel in malaria-endemic areas and the absence of tobacco consumption. There was no competition between compliance with the different AVPMs or between compliance with any AVPM and malaria chemoprophylaxis. Conclusion Interventions aimed at improving compliance with AVPMs should target young people without management responsibilities who are scheduled for non-operational activities in countries with high risk of clinical malaria. Weak associations between compliance and history of clinical malaria or variables that pertain to threat perception suggest that cognition-based interventions referencing a "bad experience" with clinical malaria could have only a slight impact on the improvement of compliance. Further studies should focus on the cognitive and behavioural predictors of compliance with AVPMs.

Malaria Journal , 2010, DOI: 10.1186/1475-2875-9-41
Abstract: The compliance with malaria chemoprophylaxis has been estimated and analysed by validated questionnaires administered before and after the short-term missions (about four months) in five tropical African countries of 2,093 French soldiers from 19 military companies involved in a prospective cohort study. "Correct compliance" was defined as "no missed doses" of daily drug intake during the entire mission and was analysed using multiple mixed-effect logistic regression model.The averaged prevalence rate of correct compliance was 46.2%, ranging from 9.6%to 76.6% according to the companies. Incorrect compliance was significantly associated with eveningness (p = 0.028), a medical history of clinical malaria (p < 0.001) and a perceived mosquito attractiveness inferior or superior to the others (p < 0.007). Correct compliance was significantly associated with the systematic use of protective measures against mosquito bites (p < 0.001), the type of military operations (combat vs. training activities, p < 0.001) and other individual factors (p < 0.05).The identification of circumstances and profiles of persons at higher risk of lack of compliance would pave the way to specifically targeted strategies aimed to improve compliance with malaria chemoprophylaxis and, therefore, its effectiveness.Non-immune civilians and military personnel traveling in malaria-endemic areas are at risk of getting malaria and may become clinically ill during or after their travel. Approximately 25-30 million travellers from non-tropical regions visit malaria-endemic countries annually, and about 30,000 cases of travel-associated clinical malaria occur each year [1]. In the UK, the incidence of imported clinical malaria among civilian travellers visiting West Africa varied from 196 cases to 52 cases/1,000 traveller-years between 2003 and 2006 [2]. In a Swedish survey, conducted from 1997 to 2003, the annual incidence rate of clinical malaria was 240, 302 and 357 per 100,000 travellers to East Africa

Abstract:

The Extensible Markup Language (XML) is becoming a de-facto standard for exchanging information among the web applications. Efficient implementation of web application needs to be efficient implementation of XML and XML schema document. The quality of XML document has great impact on the design quality of its schema document. Therefore, the design of XML schema document plays an important role in web engineering process and needs to have many schema qualities: functionality, extensibility, reusability, understandability, maintainability and so on. Three schema metrics: Reusable Quality metric (RQ), Extensible Quality metric (EQ) and Understandable Quality metric (UQ) are proposed to measure the Reusable, Extensible and Understandable of XML schema documents in web engineering process respectively. The base attributes are selected according to XML Quality Assurance Design Guidelines. These metrics are formulated based on Binary Entropy Function and Rank Order Centroid method. To check the validity of the proposed metrics empirically and analytically, the self-organizing feature map (SOM) and Weyuker’s 9 properties are used.

New teacher functions in cyberspace – on technology, mass media and education
Mie Buhl
Seminar.net , 2008,
Abstract: Information technology allows the education system to do its job in new ways. Conceptions of what it means to be educated are changing both for teachers and for students. A teacher’s professional duties are not limited to acting as a disseminator of knowledge and facilitating learning processes for the student. Teachers must also relate their position to new constructions of time and space. However, these new constructions of what it is to be an actor in time and space mean that some of the functions that have as a matter of course been assembled in the person of the teacher have been displaced into other positions. Information technology exposes the teacher’s performative choice in how teachers act in certain situations, which intensifies reflexivity. This article is about how teachers must meet increasing expectations to perform on the premises of mass media and how this displaces the premises for educational practice. Specific examples will be provided from a situation in the master’s program in media and ICT.

Abstract: Lorsque le passé s’y loge, les objets de la vie quotidienne éveillent des sensations particulières – passion, haine, dégo t, peur… - et se muent en support de la mémoire en se parant de valeurs biographiques. Les uvres d’art, les monuments, les livres, les photographies… sont investis d’un r le privilégié dans la mise en mémoire de l’histoire. Les initiatives patrimoniales se font nombreuses : les institutions, telles que les musées, qui proposent de raconter l’histoire par la culture matéri...
Quand l’artiste contemporain joue au muséographe

CeROArt : Conservation, Exposition, Restauration d'Objets d'Art , 2007,
Abstract: L’article présente trois expositions consacrées à des thèmes dits de société, dont la muséographie a été entièrement confiée à des artistes contemporains. Il propose une réflexion sur l’apport particulier de ces intervenants inhabituels sur la conception de l’exposition, tant sur le plan de la forme que du contenu. En effet, les artistes renouvèlent les modes de présentation – à moins qu’ils ne s’inspirent du langage traditionnel de l’exposition – et abordent les sujets avec distance, humour ou provocation. This article deals with the intervention of contemporary artists in order to create themselves museography of exhibitions. Through the presentation of three study cases in society museums, the author shows what exhibitions language should get out of this artistic work, in both aspects of form and content - humorous, provocative or distant approach - even if the exhibition display could also be inspired by classical museal forms.
