OBJECTIVE To compare clinical features of CCM1, CCM2, and CCM3 mutation carriers. METHODS A detailed clinical and molecular analysis of 163 consecutive cerebral cavernous malformation (CCM) families was performed. RESULTS A deleterious mutation was detected in 128 probands. Three hundred thirty-three mutation carriers were identified (238 CCM1, 67 CCM2,(More)
Few studies have directly compared the clinical features of neuropathic and non-neuropathic pains. For this purpose, the French Neuropathic Pain Group developed a clinician-administered questionnaire named DN4 consisting of both sensory descriptors and signs related to bedside sensory examination. This questionnaire was used in a prospective study of 160(More)
BACKGROUND The clinical benefit of preventive eradication of unruptured brain arteriovenous malformations remains uncertain. A Randomised trial of Unruptured Brain Arteriovenous malformations (ARUBA) aims to compare the risk of death and symptomatic stroke in patients with an unruptured brain arteriovenous malformation who are allocated to either medical(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Perception of the subjective visual vertical (SVV) is affected by cerebral hemispheric lesions. Knowledge of this disturbance is of interest for the study of its possible relation to balance disturbances. There is still uncertainty about the possible effects of a visual field defect and of the side and site of the lesion. This study(More)
The effect of sympathectomy and sensory denervation on vascular smooth muscle cell (SMC) differentiation was investigated in hypercholesterolemic rats. Newborn rats received injections of guanethidine, capsaicin or both for denervations. Shams received injections of vehicles. The four groups were fed 1% cholesterol diet for 3 months. Intact(More)
T he microcirculation is generally taken to include the smallest arteries, the arterioles, capillaries, and venules. 1,2 Exchange of gases, nutrients, and metabolites between the blood and tissues occurs almost exclusively in the microcirculation, and adequate perfusion via the micro-circulatory network is essential for the integrity of tissue and organ(More)
BACKGROUND Schizophrenia is a disabling disease with a significant proportion of patients experiencing persistent symptoms. Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is a promising new therapeutic tool that could benefit to schizophrenic patients. In this study we sought to assess the efficacy of active rTMS compared to sham stimulation in the(More)
The purpose of this study was to describe the age-specific distribution of midfemoral intracortical porosity throughout the cortical width in males and females. Microradiography and an automated image analysis system were used to study midfemoral cortical bone specimens from 163 white people, including 77 males and 86 females, in a recent anthropological(More)
AIM The MITOCARE study evaluated the efficacy and safety of TRO40303 for the reduction of reperfusion injury in patients undergoing revascularization for ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). METHODS Patients presenting with STEMI within 6 h of the onset of pain randomly received TRO40303 (n = 83) or placebo (n = 80) via i.v. bolus injection prior(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The French Pain Society published guidelines for neuropathic pain management in 2010. Our aim was to evaluate the compliance of GPs with these guidelines three years later. METHODS We used "e" case vignette methodology for this non interventional study. A national panel of randomly selected GPs was included. We used eight "e"(More)
