INTRODUCTION This is a presentation of a 61-year-old female patient. Since 44 years have passed from the onset of her first symptoms until the final diagnosis of sarcoidosis, this was the reason of our decision to publish the case. CASE OUTLINE During the follow-up period of 44 years the patient had ocassional polymorphic complains, such as adynamia,(More)
A group of 72 patients with 111 asymptomatic carotid stenoses (ACS), mean age 65.42 +/- 9.21, and a group of 36 patients with 58 symptomatic carotid stenoses (SCS), mean age 67.63 +/- 8.79, were analyzed prospectively during a 3-year follow-up period. All patients underwent color duplex scan sonography (CDS), carotid arteriography, computed tomography (CT)(More)
The aim of this paper was to examine the correlation between the Color Doppler ultrasound (CD-US) and multidetector CT angiography (MDCTA) diagnostic methods, and to define the degree and extent of stenosis in patients with internal carotid artery stenosis. This was a cross-sectional study with a consecutive series of patients. All US examinations were(More)
The increased thickness of the carotid wall >1 mm is a significant predictor of coronary and cerebrovascular diseases. The purpose of our study was to assess the agreement between multidetector row computed tomography angiography (MDCTA) in measuring carotid artery wall thickness (CAWT) and color Doppler ultrasound (CD-US) in measuring intimae-media(More)
Nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (Gorlin syndrome) is a rare autosomal dominant disorder characterized by numerous basal cell carcinomas, keratocystic odontogenic tumors of the jaws, and diverse developmental defects. This disorder is associated with mutations in tumor suppressor gene Patched 1 (PTCH1). We present two patients with Gorlin syndrome, one(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Vast majority of patients with corotid arthery sclerosis do not have transitory ischemic attacs (TIA) as working to the persistent silent disease, but stroke is the first sign. Precise and early diagnosis of the carotid artery disease and plaques are very important. The aim of this study was to determine how the composition/identity of(More)
Anatomy of frontal sinuses varies individually, from differences in volume and shape to a rare case when the sinuses are absent. However, there are scarce data related to influence of these variations on impact generated fracture pattern. Therefore, the aim of this study was to analyse the influence of frontal sinus volume on the stress distribution and(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was measurement of artery intima media thickness (IMT) and plaques as an early indicator of atherosclerosis in diabetics comparing with other risk factors of carotid artery. METHODS AND MATERIALS 110 pts: 50 with Diabetes Mellitus, type 1 (25) and type 2 (25), 20 pts with glucose intolerance, 20 pts with type 2 de novo and 20(More)
Color duplex scanning is important method in diagnostics of carotid stenosis disease (CSD). This method is accurate in estimation of stenosis degree and plaque quality characteristics as potential source of embolus. It enable the approach to extracranial as mostly affected segments of carotid arteries, frequent follow up of asymptomatic clinical course of(More)
UNLABELLED Measurement of intima-media thickness (IMT) of carotid artery by ultrasound, is well known method. Using this noninvasive method in various risck factors such as diabetes mellitus, dislipidemia, hypertension, smoking, age, obesity could be very usefull in pathophisiology studies of atherosklerosis. PURPOSE The aim of this study was to measure(More)
