Foreign body synovitis has been neglected in the rheumatology literature. We describe 26 patients in whom arthritis, bursitis, or tenosynovitis appeared within 1 day to 7 years after an initial injury by a penetrating foreign body. Twenty-two patients presented with acute synovitis, which was followed by chronic or recurrent inflammation mimicking septic(More)
A 52-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital presenting with subarachnoid hemorrhage, left ophthalmoplegia, and right hemiparesis. Previous symptoms and signs suggested the presence of panhypopituitarism. A giant intracranial aneurysm of the internal carotid artery, diagnosed by magnetic resonance imaging, showed the characteristic flow void phenomenon(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Ischemic penumbra has been suggested as a contributing mechanism to secondary neuronal injury in intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). Preliminary data suggest the presence of perihematomal hypoperfusion within the first hours after acute ICH. Our objective was to elucidate perfusion changes in the perihematomal region over time using(More)
We carried out a prospective study of 116 patients under 50 years of age who had deep venous thrombosis of the lower extremities to determine whether the presence of congenital anomaly of the inferior vena cava (IVC) was a risk factor for the disease. All patients were investigated by Doppler echography. Some 37 patients who had iliac vein occlusion also(More)
Objectives The aim of this investigation was to evaluate the pancreatographic findings and dynamics of pancreatic duct diameter, as determined by secretin-enhanced magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (S-MRCP), in patients with acute alcoholic pancreatitis or chronic alcoholic pancreatitis and in a control group. Methods S-MRCP was performed in(More)
Aim. To study the value of early (24 h) post-operative ACTH and serum cortisol as predictors of remission after transsphenoidal surgery in Cushing’s disease. Methods. We prospectively studied 44 patients who underwent transsphenoidal surgery for Cushing’s disease between 1997 and 2005. The mean follow-up period of patients after surgery was 49 months(More)
To determine the prevalence and significance of the systolic compression of the anterior descending coronary artery in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, we studied 54 consecutive patients out of a catheterization laboratory population of 1619. This angiographic finding was found to be more prevalent (P less than 0.001) and severe in myopathic than in secondary(More)
The aim of the study was to compare the antihypertensive efficacy of once-daily lisinopril vs enalapril both during normal daily activity and sleep, in mild-to-moderate essential hypertension. After a 4-week wash-out period, 34 patients (17 M, 17 F) aged 22 to 67 years were randomized in a multicenter, open, parallel fashion: 17 received lisinopril (10-20(More)
