The modern classification is presented based on genetic criteria of the group of degenerative nervous system diseases inherited as autosomal dominant trait and called collectively spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA). They belong mostly to the class of diseases of similar mutation mechanism in which amplification is present of the trinucleotide sequence (CAG)n.(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Depression is one of the most common post-stroke complications, which could impair rehabilitation outcome and quality of life, and could also increase mortality after stroke. The aim of the present study was to assess the association between demographic, socioeconomic and clinical (stroke risk factors, type of stroke, location of(More)
Poland has one of the highest rates of death due to stroke in Europe, which, in contrast to many industrialized countries, has not changed since at least 1984. To improve this unfavorable situation, the entire approach to stroke management needs to be recognized. For this purpose, an analysis of stroke epidemiology regarding regional differences was one of(More)
Computer-assisted analysis was done of database containing 1180 records of 249 patients with SSPE hospitalized repeatedly at the I Dept. of Neurology using the EPI INFO 6 computer system recommended by the WHO. Boys were slightly prevalent in these cases (58%). The results of the analysis showed a falling incidence of SSPE among children born after 1976(More)
Ischemic strokes occurring in patients with non-rheumatic atrial fibrillation (AF) are due to a variety mechanisms, and not necessarily to cardiogenic embolism. The aim of the study was to determine the role and prevalence of carotid artery disease in stroke patients with AF, as well as its influence on the stroke prognosis. 513 consecutive patients with(More)
Spinocerebellar ataxia is a group of diseases with autosomal dominant inheritance heterogenous both clinically and genetically. So called dynamic mutations underlie most these nosological units. The clinical patterns of various SCA types have not yet been defined completely. The purpose of the present report was description of the typical symptoms and signs(More)
The aim of this study is a clinical and electroencelographic analysis of those SSPE patients who suffered epileptic seizures in course of the disease. The material is based on an analysis of a computed database including 1180 case histories from multiple hospitalizations of 248 SSPE patients (141 males, 107 females) in years 1978-1995. The analysis was made(More)
