AIMS The objective was to correlate the change in the lesion load (LL) and brain atrophy in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) with progression of clinical disability, represented by the Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS), and to test if stratification of patients according to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) criteria can increase the predictive(More)
Eosinophilic myocarditis (EM) represents a rare form of myocardial inflammation with very heterogeneous aetiology. In developed countries, the most prevalent causes of EM are hypersensitivity or allergic reactions, as well as hematological diseases leading to eosinophilia. The disease may have a variable clinical presentation, ranging from asymptomatic(More)
In the last decade, there has been increasing evidence that comprehensive evaluation of the left atrium is of utmost importance. Numerous studies have clearly demonstrated the prognostic value of left atrial volume for long-term outcome. Furthermore, advances in catheter ablation procedures used for the treatment of drug-refractory atrial fibrillation(More)
OBJECTIVES Our goal is to demonstrate the variability of imaging findings, primarily in the MRI, in 46 patients who survived acute methanol poisoning. This cohort of patients is the largest such sample group examined by MRI. METHODS Patients were examined by means of imaging methods (42 patients by MRI and 4 by CT). All had an identical protocol of MR(More)
OBJECTIVES To monitor the interaction between the clinical manifestation of the secondary progressive form of multiple sclerosis (SPMS) expressed in the Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) and abnormal findings in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain. To compare a time line of brain atrophy in patients with SPMS, patients with(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY The aim of the study was to optimize, on the basis of an anatomical study, the technique of partial denervation of the wrist in terms of safety for preserving motor innervation of the quadrate pronator muscle, and to include this technique in the range of reconstruction operations for the treatment of degenerative carpal diseases.
