Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is an uncommon spindle cell neoplasm with unpredictable behavior. It was originally described in the pleura, but is now known to occur in various locations. SFT of the tongue is rare, with only four cases on record. An SFT of the anterolateral part of the left side of the tongue, which occurred in a 48 year-old man is recorded.(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the ability of moxifloxacin to penetrate healthy brain barriers. METHODS Fifty patients received a single oral dose of 400 mg as an antimicrobial prophylaxis regimen for a short urological procedure under spinal anaesthesia. Serum and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) were sampled at different time intervals post-drug intake and patients(More)
To evaluate the ex vivo immunomodulatory properties of moxifloxacin, we applied serum and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) samples from 50 patients who received a single oral dose of 400 mg. Patients were divided into 5 groups according to time lapsing between sampling and drug intake: group I, 0.5 to 1 h; group II, 1 to 2 h; group III, 2 to 4 h; group IV, 4 to 6(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Numerous controlled clinical trials have demonstrated the safety and efficacy of pregabalin in the treatment of neuropathic pain. The objectives of the present study were to assess the impact of pregabalin under real-world conditions on pain, pain-related sleep interference and general well-being, and to assess the tolerability and(More)
IMPLICATIONS We report the case of a patient who had increased lipids in his blood and who complained of dyspnea the first postoperative day after resection of his left lung. As the blood lipids were decreased, his respiration was improved. We conclude that when respiration deteriorates postoperatively, increased blood lipids should be considered as a cause.
We used spatially resolved near-infrared spectroscopy (SRS-NIRS) to assess calf and thigh muscle oxygenation during running on a motor-driven treadmill. Two protocols were used: An incremental speed protocol was performed in 5-min stages, while a pacing paradigm modulated the step frequency (2.3 Hz [SLow]; 3.3 Hz [SHigh]) during a constant velocity for 2(More)
We present a case of spinal cord infarction following an operation on a 64-year-old man for mesenteric vascular occlusion under combined general and epidural anesthesia. Several etiological factors, each one able to affect blood flow in the spinal cord and cause infarction, might have been present in our patient, including generalized degenerative(More)
