BACKGROUND Carotid stenting is a potential alternative to carotid endarterectomy but whether this technique is as safe as surgery and whether the long-term protection against stroke is similar to that of surgery are unclear. We previously reported that in patients in the Endarterectomy Versus Angioplasty in Patients with Symptomatic Severe Carotid Stenosis(More)
A cohort of 8 patients with myxoma of the left atria and neurological manifestations is reported. Cerebral ischaemia, sometimes responsible for epileptic seizures, led to the discover of the myxoma (5 cases) or recurrence after exeresis (1 case) with imaging evidence of cerebral infarction in 5 cases. The first manifestation was a retinal embolism and(More)
We observed a series of 9 patients (1 male, 8 females, mean age 49 years) who had experienced cerebral vascular events with livedo racemosa (Sneddon's syndrome). Vascular dementia occurred in 3 patients and in the 6 others there was a single or several acute cerebral ischaemic events. Angiography of the brain revealed multiple distal arterial occlusions in(More)
Goodpasture's syndrome is a form of rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis with pulmonary hemorrhage in the presence of antiglomerular basement membrane antibodies. Concomittant central nervous system manifestations are exceptionally reported. We report such a case of an 55-year-old woman who developed fluctuant neurobehavioral manifestations over a 9(More)
The aim of the present study was to analyse whether hormonal responses could explain an exercise limitation in Down's syndrome (DS). Fourteen young men with DS (mean age 22.5 +/- 0.7 years) and 15 controls (CONT, mean age 22.5 +/- 0.3 years) participated in the study. During a treadmill submaximal incremental test, blood samples were collected for(More)
Air embolism following transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA) is extremely rare. To date, only 1 case has been described (estimated incidence: 0.02-0.07%). Here, a 70-year-old patient developed a left upper-lobe alveolar syndrome with no response to well-conducted antibiotic treatments. Conventional bronchoscopy was normal, but virtual bronchoscopy showed(More)
Occurrence of seizure during Graves' disease is very rare. According to Lin et al. (1992), only 13 cases were published between 1956 and 1992. Since then, four other cases have been published, resulting in a total of 17 papers in 40 years (Li et al. 2000, Lee et al. 1997, Radetti et al. 1993). We report, in this paper, the case of a young girl treated for(More)
