Strategic lesions of the thalamus interfere with cognitive functions and produce complex neuropsychological symptoms. Bilateral, simultaneous thalamic hemorrhages are unusual causes of thalamic dementia. We present clinical, neuropsychological and structural neuroimaging data of a 12-month follow-up period of a patient with bilateral thalamic hemorrhages.(More)
BACKGROUND The efficiency of denatured muscle grafting in nerve repair has been confirmed in experimental models and animals. The first clinical trials to repair digital nerves and mixed sensory-motor nerves were encouraging regarding sensory recovery but motor recovery was poor, probably because of delayed repair. We present the functional outcome of(More)
The inter-hemispheric symmetry of electroencephalographic (EEG) post-movement beta-event-related synchronization (PMBS) after movements on a drawing board was studied in eight acute stroke subjects with mild hemiparesis and eight normal subjects. A follow-up testing was conducted 3 months after the initial recordings with a twofold purpose: (1) to validate(More)
In a naming task conducted with bi-alphabetic readers of Serbo-Croatian. it was shown that letter strings that can be assigned both a Roman and a Cyrillic alphabet reading incur longer latencies than the unique alphabet transcription of the same word. and that the magnitude of the difference depended on the number of ambiguous characters in the ambiguous(More)
Connection between oxidative stress and clinical outcome in acute ischemic stroke (AIS) has been poorly investigated. This study was aimed to assess redox state (through measurement of oxidative stress markers) of patients with acute ischemic stroke during different stages of follow-up period, and to find association between values of mentioned markers and(More)
OBJECTIVES The present study examined the association between carotid atherosclerosis, coronary atherosclerosis and common carotid artery intima-media thickness (CCA-IMT) in patients with incident ischemic stroke and its subtypes (75 cases and 21 controls). METHODS Cases with ischemic brain infarctions (IBIs) were consecutively recruited and classified(More)
It has been shown that common carotid intima-media thickness (CCA-IMT) is a useful outcome measure in clinical studies and intervention trials reflecting early stage of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular risk. The present study examined the association between CCA-IMT and incident ischemic stroke and its subtypes in 75 cases and 21 controls. Cases with(More)
BACKGROUND Locked-in syndrome (LIS) is a condition characterized by quadriplegia and anarthria. The most common cause is a ventral pontine lesion due to atherosclerotic basilar artery disease. METHODS Cases with LIS were prospectively identified among the patients with acute ischemic stroke over 3 years, between 2009 and 2011. Clinical characteristics,(More)
INTRODUCTION Common carotid artery intima-media thickness (CCA-IMT) measurements are widely used to study atherosclerosis. CCA-IMT is a useful outcome measure in clinical studies and intervention trials because it reflects early stages of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular risk. The present study examined the relationship between common carotid artery(More)
