A novel peripheral neuropathy of autosomal recessive inheritance has been identified in Balkan Gypsies and termed hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy-Russe (HMSN-R). We investigated 21 affected individuals from 10 families. Distal lower limb weakness began between the ages of 8 and 16 years, upper limb involvement beginning between 10 and 43 years, with(More)
The influence of acetazolamide in patients with hemorrhagic stroke was assessed in 54 patients in comparison with the influence of other therapies in 68 patients included in a control group. Modified Rankin Scale and mortality rate were evaluated at three different moments: onset, 72 hours and control (3 weeks-one month from the onset). A better outcome was(More)
The effect of hemodilution was studied in 106 acute ischaemic stroke patients (55 hemodiluted and 51 control subjects). The investigation did not show statistically significant differences between the two groups regarding the mortality rate and the degree of rehabilitation (modified Rankin Scale) but revealed a significant neurologic score (proposed by the(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the dental and skeletal changes in the maxillary bone morphology, produced by two-arm rapid palatal expansion appliances. PATIENTS AND METHODS The study included 22 girls with an average age of 11.9 years treated with RPE appliances at the Department of Pedodontics and Orthodontics, Faculty of Dentistry,(More)
The effect of antihypertensive therapy withdrawal in acute ischaemic stroke patients was assessed in order to establish possible correlations between blood pressure values and the modified Rankin Scale (mRS) outcome. One hundred and twelve consecutive patients with acute ischaemic stroke and hypertension were treated with relatively similar regimen.(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to analyze the dental and alveolar intercanine, interpremolar and intermolar widths in patients with Class II/2 malocclusion and to compare the data with a patient group with normal occlusion and also with a patient group with Class II/1 malocclusion. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study was conducted on 140 untreated(More)
168 patients with haemorrhagic stroke (H.S.) were clinically and paraclinically studied. In 74 (44%) patients, the outcome was favourable whereas 94 (56%) died. The prognostic criteria were assessed according to: location and size of haematoma, consciousness vegetative disorders, medical history, comorbidity, pupillary and oculomotor disturbances.
Clinical study and laboratory investigations were performed in 166 carotid ischaemic stroke (CIS) patients and 64 vertebro-basilar ischaemic stroke (VBIS) patients. The study revealed some features of VBIS: significant male predominance (p < 0.001), better outcome (for modified Rankin Scale (MRS)) (p < 0.01), significant number of different triggering(More)
