This article represents the recommendations for the management of spontaneous intracerebral haemorrhage of the European Stroke Initiative (EUSI). These recommendations are endorsed by the 3 European societies which are represented in the EUSI: the European Stroke Council, the European Neurological Society and the European Federation of Neurological(More)
BACKGROUND The risk of stroke after transfemoral aortic valve implantation (TAVI) due to dislodgement and subsequent embolization of debris from aortic arch atheroma or from the calcified valve itself ranges between 2% and 10%. The rate of clinically silent cerebral ischemia is unknown but may be even higher. METHODS AND RESULTS Thirty-two patients who(More)
In a previous study, a three-dimensional (3D) MRI atlas of the human cerebellar nuclei was introduced based on findings in one healthy human subject [Dimitrova, A., Weber, J., Redies, C., Kindsvater, K., Maschke, M., Kolb, F.P., Forsting, M., Diener, H.C., Timmann, D., 2002. MRI atlas of the human cerebellar nuclei. NeuroImage 17, 240-255]. The present MRI(More)
The aim of the present study was to compare eyeblink conditioning in cerebellar patients with lesions including the territory of the superior cerebellar artery (SCA) and in patients with lesions restricted to the territory of the posterior inferior cerebellar artery (PICA). The cerebellar areas known to be most critical in eyeblink conditioning based on(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to assess the safety and performance of the Wingspan stent system and Gateway percutaneous transluminal angioplasty balloon catheter in the treatment of high-grade, intracranial atherosclerotic lesions in patients who had failed medical therapy. METHODS In this prospective, multicenter, single-arm(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the incidence and prognostic value of local brain swelling, the extent of parenchymal hypodensity, and the hyperdense middle cerebral artery sign as shown by CT within the first 5 hours after the onset of symptoms in patients with angiographically proved middle cerebral artery trunk occlusions. METHODS Fifty-three patients were(More)
Although the neuronal mechanisms underlying normal sexual motivation and function have recently been examined, the alterations in brain function in deviant sexual behaviours such as paedophilia are largely unknown. The objective of this study was to identify paedophilia-specific functional networks implicated in sexual arousal. Therefore a consecutive(More)
The aims of this study were (1) to evaluate FDG PET/CT and CT for the detection of axillary lymph node metastases in breast cancer (BC) patients and (2) to evaluate FDG PET/CT as a pre-test for the triage to sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) versus axillary lymph node dissection (ALND). The sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative predictive value(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The introduction of flow diverters (FDs) has expanded the possibilities for reconstructive treatment of difficult intracranial aneurysms. Concern remains as to the long-term patency of the perforating arteries and side branches covered during stent placement. Our purpose was to evaluate the performance of and early effect on covered(More)
The aim of this cohort study was to assess the risk of developing cancer, specifically leukaemia, tumours of the central nervous system and lymphoma, before the age of 15 years in children previously exposed to computed tomography (CT) in Germany. Data for children with at least one CT between 1980 and 2010 were abstracted from 20 hospitals. Cancer cases(More)
