    ABSTRACT: Purpose of the study The rectal prolapse is a frequent affection of the young child and represents a motive for consultation regularly met in paediatrics. The purpose of this article is to review the coverage of child rectal prolapse, by promoting the perirectal injection with a sclerosing product. Patients and methods Retrospective study concerning 15 cases of primitive children rectal prolapses observed handled between 2002 and 2009. The treatment undergone by all the patients in this series was essentially based on the injection of sclerosing product under the mucous membrane, after failure of the medical treatment. Results The remote results were estimated after 2 years. No second recurrence was reported. The cure was obtained in 100% of the cases, without any complication. Conclusion The approach of this study is to show the utility of under mucous membrane injections of sclerosing product in the treatment of primitive rectal prolapse of the child to obtain a complete cure.

    ABSTRACT: Recently, L. Gyugyi introduced the concept of the unified power flow controller (UPFC) in flexible AC transmission systems (FACTS). This paper shows that the voltage-source type matrix power converter cannot only fulfil the specifications of the UPFC but also surpass it on the following points: (1) the ability to link power systems at different frequency standards (60 Hz and 50 Hz); (2) 360° phase-shift range; and (3) high synchronizing power associated with series reactance compensation. This paper shows the modifications required to adapt the matrix power converter for UPFC application and presents experimental results which substantiate its capabilities

    ABSTRACT: Incarceration rarely complicates the chronically progressive form of the full thickness rectal prolapse. Even more rarely, it becomes strangulated, necessitating emergency surgery. We describe an extremely rare case of incarcerated acute rectal prolapse, without a relevant previous history or symptoms of predisposing pathology. The patient underwent emergency perineal proctosigmoidectomy, the Altemeier operation, combined with diverting loop sigmoid colostomy. The postoperative course was quite uneventful with an excellent final result after colostomy closure. The successful treatment of this patient illustrates the value of the Altemeier procedure in the difficult and unusual case scenario of bowel incarceration.
