CT is the most effective examination technique for studying the evolution of ischemic attacks, but if performed within the first 3 weeks it does not allow prognosis of possible evolution towards necrosis. CBF measurement and vasoreactivity tests under Althesin do allow this prognosis. Thirty patients whose evolution was checked clinically and by repeated CT(More)
The effects of etomidate on regional cerebral blood flow (rc.b.f.) and cerebral metabolic rate for oxygen (CMRo2) were studied in seven patients undergoing diagnostic carotid angiography. Following determination of baseline rc.b.f. while awake, the patients were anaesthetized with a single dose of etomidate 15 mg. Thereafter, an infusion of etomidate (2 or(More)
TP53 and FGFR3 mutations are the most common mutations in bladder cancers. FGFR3 mutations are most frequent in low-grade low-stage tumours, whereas TP53 mutations are most frequent in high-grade high-stage tumours. Several studies have reported FGFR3 and TP53 mutations to be mutually exclusive events, whereas others have reported them to be independent. We(More)
Fifty-six patients presenting acute cerebral ischemia were investigated by means of 160 CT and 90 RN scans. CT was positive before contrast injection in 90% of cases. A total of 120 CTs were done before and after contrast injection. Only 31% of the ischemic areas were enhanced. Out of 90 RN scans, 50 showed localized uptake. The peak of scintigraphic(More)
A first series of experiments showed that the passage of a direct current along a positive electrode immersed in heparinised blood caused the formation of an adhering clot whose diameter increased with time and current intensity. A second series of experiments was done on 10 rabbits as follows: under general anaesthesia, a catheter used as a guide to the(More)
"Diazanalgesia" employs the combination diazepam + fentanyl. Its effects were studied on regional cerebral blood flow and oxygen metabolism in 8 normal subjects, who were examined angiographically. During diazanalgesia, cortical blood flow falls by 56 p. 100. The mean hemispheric flow calculated over 10 min falls by 34 p. 100. Cerebral O2 consumption (VcO2)(More)
Recordings were electroencephalographical (EEG with spectral analysis), polygraphical (EMG, EKG, breathing). Visual and Auditory Cerebral Evoked Responses were also recorded. The depth of narcosis was quantified upon EEG data. The reactivity during the narcosis and the mechanisms of action of Etomidate on the "non specific structures" are discussed.(More)
The effect of Althesin on local blood flow in the brain was studied using intra-carotid Xenon 133 in 18 subjects: 6 apparently normal, 6 with diffuse cerebro-vascular pathology, and 6 cases of ischaemic cerebral accidents identified by scintigraphy, tomodensitometry and angiography. Blood flow decreased under Althesin in the first 2 groups, although to a(More)
