The origin of the high rate of depression in idiopathic Parkinson's disease (PD) is unknown. We applied voxel-based morphometry (VBM), as a sensitive tool in detection of gray matter MR density alterations, to find differences in depressed and nondepressed PD patients. Patients with idiopathic PD were classified into depressed (DPD) and nondepressed (NDPD)(More)
Antibodies against LGI1 (leucin-rich glioma-inactivated 1 protein) are associated with limbic encephalitis (LE), which is characterized by a favorable outcome following immunotherapy. Here, we present two cases, where antibodies against LGI1 were detected in the sera 36 and 53 months after acute LE, respectively, and none of the patients received(More)
There is a great need for MRI examinations of patients who have previously undergone deep brain stimulator (DBS) implantation. The current guidelines pertain only to a 1.5-Tesla horizontal-bore scanner complying with strict safety regulations. Moreover, almost all published in vitro and in vivo studies concerning patient safety are carried out on 1.5 Tesla(More)

RESULTS The authors found that silicone oil, implanted into an eye that developed proliferative vitreoretinopathy after surgery for optic pit-related macular detachment, has migrated into the subarachnoid space. CONCLUSIONS As this case shows,(More)
INTRODUCTION Carotid artery stenting has become a possible treatment of significant carotid stenosis. The risk of stent occlusion and restenosis might be increased by abnormal rheological conditions amplified platelet aggregation and free radical production during the operation. AIMS The aim of our study was to assess the changes in hemorheological(More)
INTRODUCTION Medial thalamotomy is one of the first stereotactic operations to have been used for neurogenic pain, has a low complication rate and no risk of the development of iatrogenic neurogenic pain. It represents selective local relief for all types of pain, without causing somatosensorial deficit. PATIENTS AND METHODS We did 39 posteromedial(More)
