The aim of this study was to investigate, in 114 stroke patients, the frequency of occurrence of a largely unknown neurological disorder, characterized by a postural imbalance due to a 'pushing away' reaction of the body towards the contralesional side of space, in function of hemispheric lesion localization and gender. The study also investigate the(More)
The nootropic agent piracetam has been shown to improve learning and memory, and it may, by this means, facilitate recovery and rehabilitation after a stroke. We report the results of a pilot study exploring its effects in patients undergoing rehabilitation after acute cerebral infarction in the carotid artery territory. We compared piracetam and placebo,(More)
We investigated the presence of postural abnormalities in a consecutive sample of stroke patients, with either left or right brain damage, in relation to their perceived body position in space. The presence or absence of posture-related symptoms was judged by two trained therapists and subsequently analysed by hierarchical classes analysis (HICLAS). The(More)
In this study we present a case of schwannoma of the trachea investigated with computer tomography (axial, precontrast) and magnetic resonance (1 Tesla, sagittal T1w before and after Gadolinium, sagittal T2w, coronal and axial after Gadolinium). The topographic abilities of MR allowed us to determine the exact location and extension of the tumor in the(More)
