Multiple system atrophy (MSA) is a neurodegenerative disorder of unknown aetiology. A possible underlying genetic component has not yet been identified. A family is reported with phenotypic MSA and probable autosomal dominant inheritance. The patients presented initially with either parkinsonian or cerebellar signs, and developed severe autonomic failure(More)
The origin of the solar wind in solar coronal holes has long been unclear. We establish that the solar wind starts flowing out of the corona at heights above the photosphere between 5 megameters and 20 megameters in magnetic funnels. This result is obtained by a correlation of the Doppler-velocity and radiance maps of spectral lines emitted by various ions(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the study was to examine the effects of mechanical thrombectomy using the Solitaire stent in patients with thromboembolic occlusions of the intracranial carotid artery bifurcation (carotid T) or middle cerebral artery (MCA) and to compare the results with a historical cohort treated with local intraarterial thrombolysis using urokinase.(More)
INTRODUCTION Since digital subtraction angiography (DSA) carries a low risk of morbidity, and is associated with patient discomfort and higher cost, our objective was to determine whether high-resolution 3-D time-of-flight MR angiography (TOF-MRA) at 3 T may replace DSA in the follow-up of patients after coiling of an intracranial aneurysm. METHODS This(More)
Little is known about whether recanalization of carotid territory occlusions by local intra-arterial thrombolysis (LIT) depends on the type of the occluding thromboembolus. We retrospectively analysed the records of 62 patients with thromboembolic occlusions of the intracranial internal carotid artery (ICA) bifurcation or the middle cerebral artery who were(More)
After short descriptions of the SUMER (Solar Ultraviolet Measurements of Emitted Radiation) spectrometer on-board SOHO (the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory) and the SOLSTICE (Solar-Stellar Irradiance Comparison Experiment) spectrometer on UARS (the Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite), a radiometric comparison is carried out of solar irradi-ance spectra(More)
