A number of musculoskeletal conditions such as costovertebral joint dysfunctions should be carefully considered. We report five cases in which patient(More)

A patient with Marfan syndrome presented with enlargement of lumbosacral spinal canal with a bulky meningocele, and a fusiform aneurysm of the ascending aorta. In Marfan syndrome, the presence of a meningocele is extremely rare, but 60% of the patients develop cardio-vascular complications (a frequent cause of death). MRI is the imaging technique of choice(More)
Compared to the normal population, patients with atrial fibrillation are at a significantly enhanced risk for cerebrovascular insults, in particular when the fibrillation is of recent occurrence, chronic rather than paroxysmal, and when it is associated with cardiopathy. Several studies have documented the efficacy of anticoagulation in prevention of(More)

It is increasingly apparent that many of these alterations are not necessarily connected to ageing but rather to physical inactivity. Rehabilitation programs adapted to the individual capacities of each patient permit(More)
