Cognitive deficits in older adults attributable to Alzheimer's disease (AD) pathology are featured early on by hippocampal impairment. Among these individuals, deterioration in spatial navigation, manifested by poor hippocampus-dependent allocentric navigation, may occur well before the clinical onset of dementia. Our aim was to determine whether(More)
The basal forebrain degenerates in Alzheimer's disease (AD) and this process is believed to contribute to the cognitive decline observed in AD patients. Impairment in spatial navigation is an early feature of the disease but whether basal forebrain dysfunction in AD is responsible for the impaired navigation skills of AD patients is not known. Our objective(More)
The aim of our study was to subcategorize Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD) using a multidisciplinary approach. Sixty four autistic patients (mean age 9.4+/-5.6 years) were entered into a cluster analysis. The clustering analysis was based on MRI data. The clusters obtained did not differ significantly in the overall severity of autistic symptomatology as(More)
A wide range of imaging studies provides growing support for the potential role of diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) in evaluating microstructural white matter integrity in Alzheimer disease (AD) and mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Our review aims to present DTI principles, post-processing and analysis frameworks and to report the results of particular(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to analyze the effect of vestibular schwannoma microsurgery via the retrosigmoid-transmeatal approach with special reference to the postoperative tinnitus outcome. MATERIAL AND METHODS A prospective study was performed in 89 consecutive patients with unilateral vestibular schwannoma indicated for microsurgery. Patient(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to analyze complications of vestibular schwannoma (VS) microsurgery. MATERIAL AND METHODS A retrospective study was performed in 333 patients with unilateral vestibular schwannoma indicated for surgical treatment between January 1997 and December 2012. Postoperative complications were assessed immediately after VS(More)
Patients with clinically isolated syndrome (CIS), unlike those with multiple sclerosis (MS), have a selective cognitive impairment which is not consistently related to structural brain changes. Our objective was to characterize a profile of cognitive impairment and its association with structural brain changes in patients with CIS who are at high risk of(More)
INTRODUCTION Balloon dilatation is a method of choice for treatment of laryngeal stenosis in children. The aim of procedure in apneic pause is to avoid new insertion of tracheostomy cannula. PATIENTS AND METHODS The authors performed balloon dilatation of subglottic laryngeal strictures (SGS) in 5 children (3 girls and 2 boys) without tracheotomy. Two of(More)
Bobble-head doll syndrome (BHDS) is a complex syndrome with the dominant symptom of repetitive anteroposterior head movement. Only 57 patients are quoted in the literature. The etiology of this syndrome remains unknown and no standard treatment has yet been established. We hereby report four cases treated at our department. All the patients presented a(More)
OBJECTIVES Neurofibromatosis von Recklinghausen type 1 (NF1) is an autosomal dominant neurocutaneous disorder affecting one in 3 000-4 000 individuals. Mid-aortic syndrome (MAS) is a rare condition characterized by segmental narrowing of abdominal aorta and stenosis of its major branches - mainly renal arteries, including manifestation of renovascular(More)
