The biochemical oxidation/reduction pathways of α-lipoic acid suggest that it may have antioxidant properties. METHODS In this study we aimed to evaluate only patients with coronary(More)
OBJECTIVE Carotid stenosis is associated with hemodynamic cerebral ischemia. Diffusion-weighted MR imaging allows for the assessment of changes related to alterations in tissue integrity. The aim of this study was to investigate (a) whether white matter lesions (WML) and apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values differ between ipsilateral and(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to investigate the relation between preoperative chronic cerebral ischemia and postoperative new cerebral ischemia in patients undergoing carotid endarterectomy (CEA). METHODS We reviewed the diffusion weighted magnetic resonance images (DWI) of the 51 patients (37 men, mean age 68.8 ± 8.4 years) undergoing(More)
