The influence of the rheological properties of the blood on cerebral perfusion is still unresolved. Data on normal subjects are lacking and difficulties arise regarding the effect of blood viscosity owing to its close relationship with hematocrit. For these reasons we have studied the relationship between two rheological hematocrit-independent parameters(More)
Some controversial issues exist whether regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) changes are present both in migraine with and without aura during the interictal period. For this reason we have studied rCBF characteristics in migraine patients when headache-free. rCBF examinations were performed by the 133Xe inhalation method on 39 normal subjects (24 aged 45 or(More)
Cerebral blood flow (CBF) was studied at rest by 133-Xenon inhalation method in 15 normal subjects, in 10 patients with cerebral infarction and normal angiograms of major cerebral arteries and in 28 patients with unilateral stenosis-occlusion of the internal carotid artery (ICA), with or without cerebral infarction. All the normals and 20 patients with ICA(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the selection criteria and characteristics of the patients who have access to rehabilitation facilities after having experienced an acute stroke. Between January 1993 and February 1994, 383 patients were recruited in 13 hospitals in Lombardy, and telephonically followed up four months after study entry. The data were(More)
Four elementary mono-compartmental lung models yield parametrizations of Maximal Expiratory Flow-Volume curves of normal subjects. The respective analytical functions are fitted to the measured curves and the mathematically derived ventilation indices are compared with standard measured data. While individual values of resistance and compliance seem devoid(More)
