Surgical Science (SS) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/ss.2019.101006
Abstract: Introduction: The word “Teratoma” derives from the Greek word “teratos” including the meaning show. Teratoid tumors derived from the transformation of multipotent germ cells. They are composed of ectodermal, endodermic and mesodermal tissues in variable proportions; hence the term “embryonic tumor”. Objectives: We are reporting the case of a mature teratoma discovered in a young child whose delivery was vaginally performed. Through this case we put in diagnostic and therapeutic highlight and we made a literature review. Case report: Patient 17 months admitted for the anterior compartment mass associated with inspiratory dyspnea. No anomaly/abnormality was detected during the follow-up of the pregnancy. The Patient with dyspnea grade 2 was admitted according to Chevaleir-Jackson classification. No abnormalities of stature ponderal developments were noted. Surgery of excision was our therapeutic alternative. Through the pathological examination a mature teratoma was found. Conclusion: Teratoma is a rare condition. Proper management of mature teratoma helps to prevent recurrence.

Abstract: Grisel’s syndrome is a rare complication that is characterized by non-traumatic atlantoaxial subluxation. It is most commonly seen in children after an upper respiratory tract infection or neck surgery, such as an adenoidectomy, tonsillectomy and mastoidectomy. Grisel’s Syndrome is characterized by torticollis and a limited range of motion of the neck with pain. Here the authors report a case of a Malian 5-year-old girl with Grisel’s syndrome following tonsillectomy. The patient’s complaints were fully resolved after 2 weeks of conservative treatment.

Fatogoma Issa Koné, Siaka Soumaoro, Naouma Cissé, N’faly Konaté, Kassim Diarra, Djibril Samaké, Kadidiatou Singaré, Kadidiatou Singaré, Boubacary Guindo, Samba Karim Timbo, Mohamed Amadou Keita
Surgical Science (SS) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/ss.2019.101002
Abstract: Objectives: We report two types of anatomical variations of the recurrent laryngeal nerve in two patients. Through these two patients we wanted to highlight our surgical approach of the recurrent nerve in an unusual position and to describe the surgical implication of these almost rare variations. Case report: patient aged 28 and 58 admitted for goiter. They underwent a right lobisthmectomy. Both recurrences were approached retrograde. The anatomical variations of the nerve concerned the non-recurrent laryngeal nerve in the first patient. In the second patient there were three anatomical variations, namely an extra laryngeal bifurcation of the nerve, a pre-vascular position of the nerve and a branch connecting the vagus nerve and the recurrent nerve. No recurrence nerve injury was noted. Conclusion: The anatomical variations of the nerve are numerous. A careful dissection is a guarantee of a good prognosis.

Surgical Science (SS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ss.2016.71003
Abstract: Objective: This study aims to analyze clinical, paraclinical and therapeutic aspects of sinusitis complications in the Otorhinolaryngology department at the teaching hospital of Gabriel Toure in Bamako. Materials and methods: This descriptive and longitudinal study was conducted on 12 months from March 2012 to February 2013 in 9 cases of sinusitis complications in the department of Otorhinolaryngology at the University Hospital Gabriel Toure in Bamako. Results: The average age of patients was 22.7 years; a median of 19 years within 6 men and 3 women with almost 12.9 days of care seeking duration. The factors of risky were the use of nonsteroid anti-inflammatory drugs NSAID (4 cases), maxillofacial trauma (1 case) and HIV (1 case). Facial pain was the major symptom, such as frontal oedema, rhinorrhea with pus shedding and nasal obstruction. Computer tomography was used for complications specification. Frontal sinusitis was the most encountered with subperiosteal abscess (44.4%). Streptococcus pneumoniae was identified in 3 cases. Medical treatment associated to surgery was conducted on 7 patients. Two cases of death have been registered. Conclusion: The complicated sinusitis is an emergency and dangerous disease requiring specific care by a multidisciplinary staff. Much of complications are commonly encountered despite the antibiotic era.

International Journal of Otolaryngology and Head & Neck Surgery (IJOHNS) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/ijohns.2019.83011
Abstract: Tonsillitis or angina, is considered as an inflammation of the palatine tonsils most often of infectious origin. It can be acute or chronic. The germs in question are mostly viruses and bacteria. Objectives: The objective of this work was to study the epidemiological and therapeutic profile of tonsillitis and their complications in the ENT Department and Head and Neck Surgery of the Mother-Child University Hospital in Luxembourg. Patients and Methods: This is a prospective study over a 12-month period from January 2018 to December 2018, including all patients who presented with tonsillitis and/or their complications. Results: Three hundred and fifteen (315) patients were collected during this period. The average age in our study was 14.25 years with extremes ranging from 2 years to 61 years. The sex ratio was 0.65 in favor of the female sex. During this period we recorded 80.95% of cases of uncomplicated tonsillitis including 60.50% for acute tonsillitis, 24.5% for chronic tonsillitis 5% for adenoid tonsillitis and 19.05% for complications. Complications included peritonsillar phlegmon 42.22%, heart disease 33.33%, cervical cellulitis 8.89%, adeno-phlegmon 6.67%, para-pharyngeal abscess 4.44%, and sepsis 4.44%. The exclusive medical treatment was performed in 44.31%. Surgical treatment (drainage incision and tonsillectomy) was performed in 55.69%. Conclusion: Tonsillitis and its complications represent an important pathology in ENT. Feynophagy febrile is the pair-origin symptom that can lead to the diagnosis. The prevention of complications is the guarantor of the reduction of its morbidity. We recommend that in the absence of RDT (Rapid Diagnostic Test), it is necessary to systematize antibiotic therapy to prevent serious complications.

Abstract: Aim: Our goal was to determine the histological profile of ENT lesions. Method: We carried out a retrospective and descriptive study in the ENT department and Cervico-Facial Surgery at the university hospital center Gabriel Touré (MALI) from 1995 to 2014. It made it possible to collect 450 cases. Result: We found a male predominance; 51.11% or a sex ratio of 1.04. The mean age of patients was 38.04 years with a standard deviation of 19.49 years and extremes of 3 months and 91 years. Benign tumors were the most frequent (154 cases or 34.22%) including 75 cases of adenomas and 43 cases of papillomas. Cancers accounted for 48.11% (or 153 cases) of all tumors and 34% of lesions. Carcinomas accounted for 81.04%, malignant lymphomas 13.72% and sarcomas 5.22% of cases. Among the 140 cases (31.11%) of inflammatory pseudotumors, we found 12 cases of tuberculosis and 15 cases of rhinoscleroma. Three (3) cases of dysplasia were observed. Conclusion: Interest should be focused on histology in order to initiate appropriate therapy.

PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases , 2012, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pntd.0001890
Abstract: Background Wuchereria bancrofti (Wb) and Mansonella perstans (Mp) are blood-borne filarial parasites that are endemic in many countries of Africa, including Mali. The geographic distribution of Wb and Mp overlaps considerably with that of malaria, and coinfection is common. Although chronic filarial infection has been shown to alter immune responses to malaria parasites, its effect on clinical and immunologic responses in acute malaria is unknown. Methodology/Principal Findings To address this question, 31 filaria-positive (FIL+) and 31 filaria-negative (FIL?) children and young adults, matched for age, gender and hemoglobin type, were followed prospectively through a malaria transmission season. Filarial infection was defined by the presence of Wb or Mp microfilariae on calibrated thick smears performed between 10 pm and 2 am and/or by the presence of circulating filarial antigen in serum. Clinical malaria was defined as axillary temperature ≥37.5°C or another symptom or sign compatible with malaria infection plus the presence of asexual malaria parasites on a thick blood smear. Although the incidence of clinical malaria, time to first episode, clinical signs and symptoms, and malaria parasitemia were comparable between the two groups, geometric mean hemoglobin levels were significantly decreased in FIL? subjects at the height of the transmission season compared to FIL+ subjects (11.4 g/dL vs. 12.5 g/dL, p<0.01). Plasma levels of IL-1ra, IP-10 and IL-8 were significantly decreased in FIL+ subjects at the time of presentation with clinical malaria (99, 2145 and 49 pg/ml, respectively as compared to 474, 5522 and 247 pg/ml in FIL? subjects). Conclusions/Significance These data suggest that pre-existent filarial infection attenuates immune responses associated with severe malaria and protects against anemia, but has little effect on susceptibility to or severity of acute malaria infection. The apparent protective effect of filarial infection against anemia is intriguing and warrants further study in a larger cohort.

Abstract: Objectives: To study the clinical and therapeutic profiles of voluminous goiter. Patients and Methods: We carried out a descriptive and prospective study, relating to a series of 30 cases of voluminous goitre, collected in the Department of Otorhinolaryngology and cervicofacial surgery (ENT and CCF) of the CHU Luxembourg Mother Child of Bamako. It has been spread over a period of 4 years from January 2015 to December 2018. Patients of all ages operated for large goitre at the ENT Department of CHU Luxembourg Mother Enfant were included. Results: In 4 years we collected 30 cases of voluminous goitre; during this period we realized 180 thyroidectomies, i.e. frequency of 16.67%. The average age was 51.37 years with an extreme ranging from 38 to 65 years. Females were common in 66.7% with a sex ratio of 0.50. The long duration of evolution has been 40 years. The sign of compression was found in 85.7%. The physical examination found a mobile swelling, hard and painless in all patients with normal endolaryngeal examination; there was no cervical lymphadenopathy. The lower dipping pole was found in 5 cases on CT. All our patients were euthyroid. The classification of TIRADS 2 was found in 80.0% of cases. Total thyroidectomy was frequent with 50.0% of cases. The average weight of the operative specimen was 586.67 g with extremes ranging from 500 g to 800 g. The size of the operative piece of 14 cm was the longest. Injury of internal jugular vein was found in 26.7% of cases. Colloid adenoma of the thyroid was found in 100% of cases, postoperative complications of the type of hematoma of the lodge in 3.3% of cases, the release of the operative wound in 10% of cases local superinfection in 7.1%. Signs of hypothyroidism were common with 50.0%. Postoperative nasofibroscopy found good vocal fold mobility in all patients. Conclusion: The large goiters have become rare because of the early management of thyroid nodule. Its management must allow the prevention of recurrent and parathyroid morbidity.

Abstract: Aims: To describe the diagnostic aspects, surgical indications and post-operative complications of thyroidectomies performed in our department. Materials and method: A descriptive retrospective study that took place in the ENT Department and Cervicofacial Surgery of Gabriel TOURE University Hospital of Bamako. We did a comprehensive sampling of all goiter cases from January 2013 to December 2018. Were included in the study, the records of patients of all ages and genders, admitted into the ward and scheduled for thyroidectomy (partial or total). The exclusion criteria were incomplete hospitalization records. There were a total of 139 files were retained. Results: In 60 months, 139 cases were collected out of 1720 patients hospitalized for surgery, representing a hospital prevalence of 8.08%. The average age was 46.89 years. (123 women and 16 men). The socio-professional categories were dominated by housewives (68.34%). The reported functional signs were tachycardia, asthenia and other signs of dysthyroidism in 59% as well as signs of compression in 24.46%. In 72 cases or 51.80%, the patients consulted between 2 and 10 years of disease progression. Twenty patients or 14.39% had a history of familial goiter and 2 patients had a history of thyroid surgery. On physical examination the swelling was antero-cervical in 56.83% of cases. In 96 cases or 69.06% the glandular diameter was between 5 and 9 cm. In 2 cases or 1.43% we noted cervical adenopathy in the jugulo-carotid chain. Ultrasound, TSHus and fT4 were performed first-line and systematically in all our patients. Ultrasound objectified an appearance of multinodular goiter in 106 cases or 76.26%. In 60.43% of cases the patients were TI classes RADS 3, they were TI RADS 4A in 16 cases or 11.51%. CT scans were performed in 3 patients or 2.15% to specify the loco-regional extension, to look for possible lymph node invasion, and to compress or dipping the goiter. Surgical indication was placed in front of a multinodular goiter (GMN) in 106 cases or 76.26%, a single goiter in 11 cases or 7.9%, a single nodule greater than 3 cm in 17 cases or 12.23%, Basedow disease in 4 cases or 2.88% and a recurrence in one case 0.72%. We performed a lobo-isthmectomy in 56.11%, a total thyroidectomy in 20.14% of cases, subtotal in 20.86% of cases and total thyroidectomy with mediation-recurrent lymph node curage and bilateral jugulo-carotidien in 4 cases or 2.87%. Recurrent nerves were systematically searched and seen in all cases. Replacement therapy was indicated in all
Investigations into Some Simple Expressions of the Gamma Function in Wind Power Theoretical Estimate by the Weibull Distribution  [PDF]
Siaka Touré
Journal of Applied Mathematics and Physics (JAMP) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/jamp.2019.712209
Abstract: The Weibull distribution is a probability density function (PDF) which is widely used in the study of meteorological data. The statistical analysis of the wind speed v by using the Weibull distribution leads to the estimate of the mean wind speed < v >, the variance of v around < v > and the mean power density in the wind. The gamma function Γ is involved in those calculations, particularly Γ (1+1/k), Γ (1+2/k) and Γ (1+3/k). The paper reports the use of the Weibull PDF f(v) to estimate the gamma function. The study was performed by looking for the wind speeds related to the maximum values of f(v), v2 f(v) and v3 f(v). As a result, some approximate relationships were obtained for Γ (1+1/k), Γ (1+2/k) and Γ (1+3/k), that use some fitting polynomial functions. Very good agreements were found between the exact and the estimated values of Γ (1+n/k) that can be used for the estimation of the mean wind speed < v >, the variance σ2 of the wind speed v; around the mean speed and the average wind power density.
