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)
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)
A case of a chondroblastoma of the skull-base associated with a persistent hypoglossal artery (PHA) is presented. Neuroradiological findings of the PHA and the tumour are reported. The existence of a carotico-basilar communication such as a PHA should be recognized prior to skull base surgery because of the potential risk of cerebral ischemia.
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)
We report four cases of progressive thalamic atrophy following ipsilateral cerebral infarction in the territory of the middle cerebral artery in neonates, with prospective radiological and clinical follow-up. This type of atrophy appears within 6 months after the onset of cerebral infarction. In the short term, this atrophy has no action on sensory and(More)
Between November 1994 and June 2001, 194 patients with Cushing's disease underwent transsphenoidal surgery: 167 patients had adenomectomy, 14 had ante hypophysectomy, 5 had subtotal hypophysectomy, 4 had hemihypophysectomy 4 had central hypophysectomy. Complications occurred in 18 patients (9.3%), including 4 deaths (three were apparently not related to(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE To evaluate the functional prognostic value of proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy performed within the 5 days of an infarction of the middle cerebral artery territory, compared with previously demonstrated prognostic factors. METHODS Proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy was performed on 77 consecutive non-comatosed patients(More)
INTRODUCTION In patients with large abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), open surgical or endovascular aneurysm repair procedures are often used to minimise the risk of aneurysm-related rupture and death; however, aneurysm repair itself carries a high risk. Low cardiopulmonary fitness is associated with an increased risk of early post-operative complications(More)
