The ability to predict adverse hypotensive events, where a patient's arterial blood pressure drops to abnormally low (and dangerous) levels, would be of major benefit to the fields of primary and secondary health care, and especially to the traumatic brain injury domain. A wealth of data exist in health care systems providing information on the major health(More)
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) causes hippocampal damage. The hippocampus can be macroscopically divided into the head, body and tail, which differ in terms of their sensitivity to excitability and also in terms of their cortical connections. We investigated whether damage also varies according to the hippocampal area involved, and studied the relationship of(More)
UNLABELLED Our goal was to study cerebral blood flow (CBF) changes after surgery in a group of 15 patients with idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH). METHODS We used hexamethylpropyleneamine oxime SPECT and statistical parametric mapping (SPM), an image analysis method that does not require prior selection of regions of interest. RESULTS Our(More)
OBJECT The test-retest method is commonly used in the management of patients with normal-pressure hydrocephalus (NPH). One of the most widely used techniques in the diagnosis of this condition is evaluation of the patient's response to CSF evacuation by lumbar puncture (a so-called tap test or spinal tap). However, interpretation of improved results in(More)
Although idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (iNPH) is considered a treatable dementia, there is still some controversy regarding the cognitive improvement in these patients. The main aims of this study were to analyze baseline cognitive status and to study the neuropsychological changes after surgical treatment in a sample of 185 consecutive iNPH(More)
BACKGROUND Normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) is associated with corpus callosum abnormalities. OBJECTIVES To study the clinical and neuropsychological effect of callosal thinning in 18 patients with idiopathic NPH and to investigate the postsurgical callosal changes in 14 patients. METHODS Global corpus callosum size and seven callosal subdivisions(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to describe the abnormalities found in the recordings of evoked potentials (EPs), in particular those of brainstem auditory evoked potentials and somatosensory evoked potentials, in a homogeneous series of patients with Chiari type 1 malformation (CM-1) and study their relationship with clinical symptoms and malformation(More)
Microdialysis enables the chemistry of the extracellular interstitial space to be monitored. Use of this technique in patients with acute brain injury has increased our understanding of the pathophysiology of several acute neurological disorders. In 2004, a consensus document on the clinical application of cerebral microdialysis was published. Since then,(More)
