BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE We sought to register the incidence rate, risk factors, and case-fatality rate of all the new cases of first-ever-in-a-lifetime stroke in the province of Beluno, Italy. This study aimed to provide an epidemiological survey of cerebrovascular disease that could supply investigative objectives and support information for regional(More)
OBJECTIVES This study formed part of a larger prospective population-based survey on cerebrovascular diseases and aimed to provide reliable and comparable results on TIA incidence and on related risk factors, which could supply investigation objectives and support information for primary and secondary prevention. MATERIAL AND METHODS We undertook a(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the accuracy of expert neurosonography (two- and three-dimensional NSG) in the characterization of major fetal central nervous system (CNS) anomalies seen at a tertiary referral center and to report the differential clinical usefulness of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) used as a second-line diagnostic procedure in the same cohort.

OBJECTIVES To assess the presence and degree of indirect signs of agenesis of the corpus callosum (ACC) according to gestational age and determine the percentage of cases in which each sign is present by 24 gestational weeks. METHODS We analyzed retrospectively 54 cases of ACC which underwent three-dimensional neurosonography at our unit between January(More)
Hyperparathyroidism due to an ectopic parathyroid adenoma commonly is revealed by parathyroid hormone (PTH) high serum level and its clinical effects on bone loss. We report a case in which exogenous L-thyroxine side effect on bone in the treatment of thyroid solitary nodule disease produced bone loss in a patient with subclinical hyperparathyroidism due to(More)
