BACKGROUND Neurologic hallmarks of Fabry disease (FD) include small fiber neuropathy as well as cerebral micro- and macroangiopathy with premature stroke. Cranial MRI shows progressive white matter lesions (WML) at an early age, increased signal intensity in the pulvinar, and tortuosity and dilatation of the larger vessels. To unravel the most promising(More)
BACKGROUND The use of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) has been associated with multiple metabolic complications whose pathogenesis is poorly understood at the present time. METHODS We performed a cross-sectional analysis of whole-body, lumbar spine (L1-L4) and proximal femur bone mineral density in 112 male subjects (HIV-infected patients on(More)
Hypertriglyceridemia, peripheral insulin resistance, and trunk adiposity are metabolic complications recently recognized in people infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and treated with highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). These complications may respond favorably to exercise training. Using a paired design, we determined whether 16 wk(More)
The angiographic characteristics of five surgically proven cases of pigmented villonodular synovitis are reported. A CT scan was performed in one case. CT scan arthrography is very useful when it demonstrates regions of high attenuation. The angiography never demonstrated in the five cases capillary blush nor arteriovenous shunting, but a regular(More)
INTRODUCTION Children with PHACES syndrome (PS) and visual impairment or stridor show a dramatic and immediate response to propranolol. However, this beta-blocking drug could be responsible for an eventually increased risk of ischemic stroke due to the underlying cerebral vascular disease. To more accurately understand the effects of propranolol on brain(More)
We describe the case of a 39 years old male known with an anterior thoracic traumatism in 1993 who observed ananterior thoracic wall tumor since 2000. After one and half year of empiric treatment the tumor starts growing very fast, reaching 30/40/35 cm by the date of his hospital admission (march 2003). Due to this accelerate growth and the size of the(More)
UNLABELLED The object is to determine the utility of rectal irrigation (RI) and bowel decontamination for the prevention of postoperative enterocolitis in Hirschsprung's disease. MATERIAL AND METHODS Between 1978 and 2005, 37 patients underwent surgical treatment for Hirschsprung's disease. Group 1 (1978-1993): 19 patients, 17 with rectosigmoid or long(More)
INTRODUCTION Pectus excavatum is the most frequent anterior thoracic wall congenital malformation. This malformation is increasing its effects with the aging process and has its peak during teenage, when the clinical symptoms become more acute and psychological effects are really important. Across the course of time many treatment techniques have been(More)
INTRODUCTION The excessive concentration of fat in the abdominal region is related to a higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD). Studies have been performed to identify simple and effective indicators of abdominal obesity and associated cardiometabolic risk through the use of simple parameters such as anthropometric and biochemical measures.(More)
The bone response to a noncemented knee prosthesis was observed by quantified isotopic gammagraphy. One hundred six sequential scintimetric explorations were performed in 36 patients with total knee arthroplasty. Fifteen areas of interest were taken into consideration and their gammagraphic analyses were compared with radiologic findings during a(More)
