We conducted a prospective study of serial intravenous digital subtraction angiography to determine the relation of arterial disease risk factors and hemostatic variables with the presence of visible atheroma at the carotid bifurcation. Of the 492 patients with cerebrovascular disease or ischemic heart disease who entered the study, 354 had hematologic(More)
SS, an 8-year-old boy with dyspraxia, presented for behavioural optometry assessment. He had been diagnosed with a subtle form of dyspraxia by his paediatric occupational therapist, based on poor proprioception, delayed bilateral integration and poor visual perception. A full visual assessment was carried out. SS was given a programme of reflex inhibition(More)
Infusions of metaraminol and angiotensin were used to test the effect of increased perfusion pressure on tissue metabolism and oedema after induction of regional cerebral ischaemia in the rat and the gerbil. An increase of mean arterial blood pressure of 30-40 mm Hg in the rat over the first 2 hours after diathermy of the middle cerebral artery prevented(More)
The possibility that the ability of bezafibrate to lower the oxygen affinity of haemoglobin might lead to an increased oxygen delivery to ischaemic cerebral tissue was explored in preliminary studies in two animal models. The combined morbidity and mortality of unilateral carotid ligation in the gerbil appeared to be reduced at two hours in bezafibrate(More)
The effects of induced hypertension, hemodilution, and osmotherapy (mannitol) have been assessed singly and in combination on the metabolic sequelae 2 hr after middle cerebral artery (MCA) occlusion in the anesthetized rat. All regimes that included hypertension and monotherapy with mannitol significantly reduced the rise in hemispheric lactate produced by(More)
