OBJECTIVE To determine the prognostic value of clinical assessment and motor evoked potentials for upper limb strength and functional recovery after acute stroke, and to establish the possible use of motor evoked potentials in rehabilitation. DESIGN A prospective study. SUBJECTS Fifty-two patients with hemiparesis were enrolled one month post-stroke; 38(More)
BACKGROUND Whereas the antimicrobial peptides hBD-2 and -3 are related to inflammation, the constitutively expressed hBD-1 might function as 8p tumour suppressor gene and thus play a key role in control of transcription and induction of apoptosis in malignant epithelial tumours. Therefore this study was conducted to characterise proteins involved in cell(More)
AIMS To investigate the frequency, the prognostic effect on functional status and the urodynamic patterns of post-stroke urinary incontinence (UI) in a sample of in-patients affected by ischemic stroke. METHODS One hundred six patients with recent ischemic stroke admitted to a neurorehabilitation unit were enrolled. Stroke localization was made according(More)
INTRODUCTION Focal pressure-related changes in brain perfusion and metabolism are discussed in single-suture craniosynostosis and brachycephalic cases (bicoronal synostosis). Raised intracranial pressure levels could be measured in some cases. In order to find possible loco-regional brain tissue changes during plastic surgery, we investigated oxygenation(More)
The trans-sinusoidal maxillary distractor (TS-MD) was used to achieve maxillary advancement in three patients with repaired cleft lip and palate. After preoperative computer-aided planning of the distraction vectors, each TS-MD was bent on a stereolithographic model of the maxilla of the patient. The devices were intraoperatively positioned using a(More)
