Although magnetic resonance imaging has been proposed for the diagnosis of deep venous thrombosis (DVT), its role in diagnostic strategy remains to be defined. We compared prospectively magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) with two-dimensional time-of-flight with contrast venography (CV) and colour duplex sonography (CDS) in 25 patients with DVT of the(More)
Patients treated with olanzapine may gain weight, especially in the first months of therapy. Amantadine (100-300 mg/day) was started in 12 patients having a mean weight gain of 7.3 kg during olanzapine treatment. The patients' weight stabilised and over 3-6 months they lost an average of 3.5 kg. No clinical deterioration occurred and no adverse effects were(More)
Glomerular hyperfiltration, a risk factor for diabetic nephropathy, has been reported in type I insulin-dependent diabetics, but it is not clear if it occurs in other types of diabetes. To ascertain the prevalence of glomerular hyperfiltration in various types of diabetes, we measured glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in 158 diabetics (91 type I, 36 type II(More)
A case report is reported of bilateral cerebellar hemispheric agenesis which was associated with secondary degeneration of cerebellofugal and cerebellopetal tracts. Somatotopic correlations between the cerebellar and the medullary olive lesions were obvious: preserved dorsal accessory olives pattern correlated with the spared vermis and normal medial(More)
The plasma distribution of gallium (as an analogue of aluminium) was investigated in patients with Alzheimer disease, Down syndrome, or stroke dementia, in subjects on haemodialysis for chronic renal failure, and in healthy controls. Gallium-transferrin binding was significantly lower in the Alzheimer (mean [SEM] 7.9 [1.1]%) and Down syndrome groups (6.9(More)
Intra-arterial metabolic radiotherapy (using lipiodol labelled with iodine-131 or rhenium-188) is a therapeutic approach that can be used for the treatment of hepatocellular carcinomas (HCC). We propose a detailed description of the tumoral model using the N1-S1 cell line as well as a technique for intra-arterial injection of radiolabelled lipiodol in order(More)
The use of [F]FDG PET in primary central nervous system lymphoma was the subject of a recent article in this journal [1]. The authors concluded that MRI plays a crucial role in CNS lymphoma, but that [F]FDG PET could yield additional information. It is well known that the use of [F]FDG to study brain tumour is hindered by the high glucose affinity for the(More)
BACKGROUND Between 2001 and 2005 important changes were observed in expert opinion about the clinical management of patients with schizophrenia (SCZ) and agitation requiring an IM psychotropic, with a growing interest for IM atypical antipsychotics. STUDY OBJECTIVES In an effort to acquire a typical, medically and psychiatrically unselected population of(More)
Glomerular hyperfiltration is a candidate marker for diabetic nephropathy in insulin-dependent diabetic patients since it can reflect elevated glomerular capillary pressure, a cause of glomerulosclerosis. We studied the potential contribution of several dietary components to glomerular hyperfiltration during a cross-sectional study of 110 consecutive(More)
