We report here a family with leukodystrophy clinical features of which are characterized as adult onset, probably autosomal dominant inheritance, hyperreflexia, cerebellar ataxia, autonomic dysfunction and no peripheral nerve involvement. T2-weighted brain MRI revealed diffuse high signal areas in the cerebral white matter. The disorder in our subjects can(More)
The role of nitric oxide (NO) in the mechanism of delayed cerebral vasospasm (VS) after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) was investigated by analyzing the stable metabolites of NO, nitrite and nitrate, by the Griess method in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and venous blood of 29 patients with SAH, the CSF of 22 control patients, and venous blood from eight(More)
We report a 45-year-old male patient with severe hypernatremia followed by rhabdomyolysis and acute renal failure. He had developed hypernatremia for two years after a surgery for an intraventricular AVM involving the hypothalamic area, which was fed by the anterior cerebral artery. He was admitted to our hospital because of progressive muscle weakness.(More)
Introduction: In the applications, the boost-voltage converter transforms the low voltage supplied from batteries, fuel cells, or ultracapacitors to a high voltage to drive the motor. Furthermore, the boost-voltage motor driver offers an effective and highly responsive motor drive. These advantages allow boost-voltage motor drivers to be employed in various(More)
