OBJECTIVE To assess the relationship between asymptomatic carotid stenosis, neuropsychological test performance, and silent MRI lesions. METHODS Performance on several neuropsychological tests was compared in 189 subjects with ultrasound-assessed carotid stenosis and 201 control subjects without carotid stenosis, recruited from a population health study.(More)
Pilomatrix carcinoma, the malignant counterpart of pilomatrixoma, is rare, with only 55 cases reported, and only four cases with visceral metastases described in the literature. Here we present a case report and a literature review on this rare tumour. A 74-year-old male with a pilomatrix carcinoma from the left temporal region presented in July 1996 and(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The safety and efficiency of the dual-layer Woven EndoBridge (WEB) device has already been published. However, this international multicenter study sought to evaluate the safety of single-layer devices, which are the newest generation of the WEB intrasaccular flow-disrupter family. They have been designed to offer smaller-sized(More)
The association between postoperative scar formation on MRI and outcome was investigated in 54 out of one hundred patients operated on with microdiscectomy in a prospective cohort study with a one year follow up. The patients were classified as failures or successes at the 12 months follow up according to a clinical overall score. All the 14 failures were(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES We investigated the cardiac effects of an ionic dimer, ioxaglate and two nonionic dimers, iotrolan, and iodixanol. METHODS During a simulated wedged catheter situation, 22 ml of each contrast medium was injected into the left anterior descending branch of the left coronary artery in seven open-chested, anesthetized dogs. RESULTS(More)
Gliosarcoma is a highly malignant brain tumor consisting of both a glioblastoma and a mesenchymal component. The latter typically resembles fibrosarcoma, but differentiation patterns resembling osteosarcoma, chondrosarcoma, angiosarcoma and rhabdomyosarcoma have also been described. Molecular-genetic studies have shown that both glioblastoma and the(More)
BACKGROUND Involvement of the CNS in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is caused by several pathogenic mechanisms including cerebral embolism. AIM To measure the frequency of microembolic signals (MES) by using transcranial Doppler (TCD) ultrasound and to assess their association with cerebral infarction, neuropsychological dysfunction, and biochemical,(More)
 The association between postoperative nerve root signs and outcome was investigated in 54 out of one hundred patients operated on by lumbar microdiscectomy in a prospective cohort study with one year follow up. The patients were classified as failures or successes at the 12 month follow up according to a clinical overall score. All the 14 failures were(More)
An autostereoscopic display with image quality comparable to ordinary 2D displays has recently been developed. The purpose of our study was to evaluate whether the visualization of static 3D models from intracranial time-of-flight (TOF) MR angiography (MRA) was improved by this display. Maximum Intensity Projection (MIP) and Volume Rendering (VR) 3D models(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the cognitive impairment and the association between neuropsychological measures and neuroimaging 1 year after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). METHOD Forty-two patients were examined clinically according to Glasgow Outcome Scale (GOS). Computed tomography (CT), single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and(More)
