Oxidized low-density lipoprotein (OxLDL) plays a major role in atherosclerosis. We undertook the present study to clarify the relationship between plasma OxLDL and the ischemic volume. We used ELISA to determine plasma OxLDL levels, and performed diffusion- and perfusion-weighted MRI (DWI, PWI) to measure the ischemic volume in 44 ischemic stroke patients.(More)
We report a case of a 7-year-old right-handed girl with neurocytoma in the left frontal lobe. She developed convulsive seizures on the right side of her face at the age of 1 year and 8 months, and CT scan revealed a low density lesion in the left frontal lobe near the Sylvian fissure. CT scan at the age of 7 years showed slight enlargement of the lesion in(More)
We assess the availability of plasma biomarkers to monitor the brain damage and the therapeutic efficacy of edaravone. The study consisted of 51 patients with ischemic cerebral infarcts. They were divided into 2 groups: GI (n = 24) had cortical lesions, and GII (n = 27) had lesions in the basal ganglia or brain stem. Edaravone was administered to 27(More)
OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE Magnetic resonance (MR) angiographic diagnosis is a noninvasive method having high sensitivity and specificity in the detection of various cerebrovascular disorders. This is the first report of MR angiographic detection of delayed posttraumatic middle cerebral artery vasospasm, the occurrence of which has been rarely described. (More)
