Lesion-induced microglial/macrophage responses were investigated in post-mortem human spinal cord tissue of 20 patients who had died at a range of survival times after spinal trauma or brain infarction. Caudal to the spinal cord injury or brain infarction, a strong increase in the number of activated microglial cells was observed within the denervated(More)
 Object. A consecutive series of 28 “operated” juxtafacet cysts is reported. We emphasize the clinical and radiological aspects leading to diagnosis. We also discuss the results of the surgical treatment.  Material and Methods. Medical information and radiological studies involving 28 patients were analyzed. Each patient has been operated on by(More)
We performed proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H-MRS) in three patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) to evaluate the distribution and extent of cortical neuronal damage as demonstrated by decreased N-acetyl-aspartate (NAA) levels. We examined primary motor (precentral gyrus) and parietal neocortical (superior parietal gyrus) regions. ALS(More)
OBJECTIVE Evaluation of TOF 3D MRA compared to angiography in the follow-up of intracranial aneurysms treated by Guglielmi detachable coils (GDC). MATERIAL and method: Prospective analysis of follow-up MRA and angiographies for 20 patients with 22 aneurysms. There were 2 MRAs for 3 aneurysms giving a total of 25 cases. RESULTS A poor correlation between(More)
Risk factors for primary cerebral hemorrhage remain uncertain. The population-based Stroke Registry of Dijon provides data on the risk factors. Among residents of Dijon (France), 130 cases of primary cerebral hemorrhage hospitalized from 1985 to 1992 were matched with 130 controls by age and sex. The following data were collected: history of hypertension,(More)
Ante- and post-mortem MRI and detailed pathological examination were performed in a patient with a typical acute traumatic central cord syndrome (ATCCS) after a minor hyperextension injury to the neck who died 60 h later from heart failure. T2-weighted MRI showed a central hyperintense area at C3–4. There were disc protrusions, but no vertebral fracture or(More)
PURPOSE To determine a possible asymmetric metabolic profile in right- handed and non-right-handed healthy subjects by comparing proton spectra from temporal lobes. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-eight healthy adults (17 right-handers, 11 non-right-handers) underwent magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and single-voxel MR spectroscopy. N-acetylaspartate (NAA),(More)
We report 28 patients with nonsurgical intracranial aneurysms referred by neurosurgeons for endovascular treatment using platinum detachable coils (GDC, Target Therapeutics, Fremont, Calif., USA). Because of unfavourable anatomical features or failed hyperselective catheterisation, 4 patients were not treated. In the other 24 patients (26 aneurysms)(More)
Metabolic changes induced by cerebral infarction or by stenosis and occlusion of the internal carotid artery have been previously described in 1H Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (1H MRS). These changes are essentially characterized by decreased N-acetyl-aspartate (NAA) and increased lactate concentration. Little is known about the metabolic changes observed(More)
