7-7.6), and the rate of vaccination was 63.9% (95% CI: 62.1-65.8). The odds ratio (OR) for vaccination against the infection among adult patients and younger patients ( smaller than = the median age) were 0.61 (95% Cl: 0.45-0.84) and 0.62 (95% Cl: 0.42-0.90), respectively. However, OR among the older patient ( bigger than median age) were 1.38 (96%Cl: NCT-501 0.66-2.89). The rate of infection-induced asthma exacerbation was 23.2% (95% CI: 18.6-29.6), and the OR for vaccination against the infection-induced asthma exacerbation was 1.42 (95% Cl: 0.69-2.92). Conclusions: The effectiveness of the vaccination against the H1N1 pdm09 virus was
confirmed during the first pandemic season, but it was limited. Further investigation on H1N1 pdm09 virus infection in asthmatics will be required.”
“Purpose: Ulixertinib We performed a prospective arthroscopic study to explore the variability of the posterior labrum glenoid insertion. We aimed to classify the insertions and to explore whether these insertions can be identified by pre-operative arthro-CT scan. Patients and methods: From January to December 2011, 86 patients were prospectively included in the current study. During arthroscopy, anterior labrum was evaluated and posterior labrum
was assessed in 3 different locations: superior, medial, and inferior. For each segment, the labrum was considered normally inserted (directly to the glenoid cartilage), medialized (inserted at the posterior part of the glenoid bone, without direct contact with the cartilage), torn (macroscopic degenerative changes, tears, fragments) or absent (agenesis). Imaging was analyzed segment by segment by an experienced osteoarticular radiologist, using the same classification. Results: Four types of posterior labrum
insertions were identified. Type 1, 60% of the cases, corresponded to a posterior labrum totally inserted in the glenoid, with direct contact with the cartilage. Type 2, 20% MK2206 of the cases, represented medialized insertion of the superior segment. Type 3, 15% of the cases, represented an associated medialization of the superior and medial segment of the posterior labrum. Type 4 is a medialized insertion of the all-posterior labrum. Fifty-six shoulders were used for arthro-CT and arthroscopy correlation: for the superior segment (n = 22/56), the sensitivity of arthro-CT to identify an abnormal insertion when the labrum is medialized was 68.18%, specificity 70.59%, positive predictive value (PPV) 60%, and negative predictive value (NPV) 77.42%. For the medial segment (n = 16/56), the sensitivity of arthro-CT to identify an abnormal insertion when the labrum is medialized was 81.25%, specificity 57.50%, PPV 43.33% and NPV 88.46%. For the inferior segment (n = 5/56), the sensitivity was 100%, specificity 47.60%, PPV 15.63% and NPV 100%.
