PURPOSE This paper is a study concerning the clinical-imagistic correlations in lacunar infarcts causes and associated lesions in these ones. We made an attempt to find out and emphasize the risk factors, causes and pathogenic mechanisms involved in lacunar syndromes. MATERIALS AND METHODS We studied 138 patients with lacunar infarcts diagnosed by(More)
The cardiovascular system is regulated by the autonomic nervous system, under cortical modulation. Stroke can induce cardiac autonomic imbalance, therefore, causing secondary cardiovascular complications. Heart rate variability (HRV) analysis is a simple method to appraise the autonomic nervous function. The purpose of this study was to investigate the(More)
UNLABELLED Within the framework of cardiovascular pathology, with an epidemopandemic aspect, the stroke, through its mortality and sequels, represents, worldwide, a major problem of community health. In this context, we present the results of an epidemiological and clinical study, both prospective and interdisciplinary, performed on a sample of 374(More)
The pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease, a progressive degenerative disorder of the central nervous system, remains obscure. 20% of cases are familial. The disorder may be due to a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Some monogenic forms of Parkinson's disease have been described. Many genetic studies explore whether a candidate gene may(More)
The progresses in clarifying the normal and pathologic cellular and molecular mechanisms are reflected in the elucidation of the way some of the most common forms of generalized seizure--absence seizures--occur and are produced. Intrinsic properties of the thalamic neurons that give them the ability to release or preserve oscillatory, low-frequency neuronal(More)
Acute inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (AIDP) is an autoimmune process that is characterized by progressive weakness, mild sensory changes and autonomic dysfunction. It is a rare disorder, afflicting about 1 person in 100,000. Yet, since the decline in the number of polio cases, it represents the most common cause of acute neuromuscular paralysis.(More)
