A regional analysis of cerebral glucose metabolism was carried out in 9 patients with progressive supranuclear palsy by using positron emission tomography with fluorodeoxyglucose as the tracer. A consistent metabolic map of frontal hypometabolism was found in 7 patients. Brain metabolism was normal in 1 subject and diffusely decreased in another. In the 7(More)
Two familial X-linked dominant syndromes of cortical maldevelopment have recently been described: double cortex/lissencephaly syndrome and bilateral periventricular nodular heterotopia. We report on 12 kindreds with familial perisylvian polymicrogyria (FPP) presenting at 10 centers, examine the clinical presentation in these familial cases, and propose a(More)
BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS A new 25-gauge (G) endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) device (EchoTip ProCore; Cook Medical, Bloomington, Indiana, USA) has been developed, which features a hollowed-out reverse bevel to trap core samples. However, data on the differences between the diagnostic yield of the 25G EchoTip ProCore and that of(More)
BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS Endoscopic ultrasound-guided pancreatic drainage (EUS-PD) has been reported as an alternative to surgery, when transpapillary access to the main pancreatic duct (MPD) is impossible. The aim of the study was to investigate the feasibility of the procedure and long-term clinical outcome in patients treated with EUS-PD. PATIENTS AND(More)
Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is mainly used for the evaluation and sampling of mediastinal and abdominal lymph nodes, luminal and submucosal lesions of the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract, as well as in the diagnostic approach for pancreatic, biliary and liver disease. However, several non-digestive pathologies may be encountered as well, expanding(More)
We studied the electrical pattern of spikes and waves and unitemporal foci by compared analysis. One analysis was obtained by two conventional derivations: longitudinal plus triangular and referential to a neck electrode ('vertical derivation'). The other analysis is quantified by the same vertical derivation and by a monopolar-like computerized derivation,(More)
In a consecutive series of 30 brains of demented patients (presenile, senile and familial types) with the histological hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease, cerebellar amyloid plaques and cerebellar amyloid angiopathy were observed in 80% of the cases. These cerebellar amyloid plaques were sometimes centered on a small amyloidotic blood vessel. They were(More)
We studied 10 patients who had neurological disorders with a MRI-based diagnosis of perisylvian dysgenesis based on the fact that the parasagittal and centrifugal extremity of the sylvian fissure was abnormally mesial. This abnormality was bilateral in seven cases; in the other three patients, the contralateral sylvian fissure appeared either normal (two(More)
