INTRODUCTION Hyperglycemia increases morbimortality in cerebral infarcts. In animal models, this relationship is only seen during the initial moments of cerebral ischaemia. The time needed in humans for cerebral damage to occur due to hyperglycemia is not known. MATERIAL AND METHODS We included 194 patients admitted within 24 hours of the start of their(More)

We studied the effect of adding Lamotrigine to the medication of 36 patients with refractory epilepsy (ten with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and ten with partial epilepsy with or without secondary generalization), who were resistant to optimized treatment with other drugs and who suffered at least four attacks per month. Lamotrigine was administered(More)
Scinto et al (Science 1994; 266: 1051-4) observed that a single drop of 0.01% tropicamide elicited more than a 13% pupil dilatation in 19 individuals with probable or possible Alzheimer's disease (AD) and 3 cognitive abnormal elderly without dementia, but not in 30 out of 32 normal elderly and 3 out of 4 patients suffering from other dementias. It could be(More)
The connection between migraine and brain haemorrhage is controversial. We present the case of eight nonhypertense patients all aged under 57 with migraine antecedents who suffered brain haemorrhage during an attack. All underwent analytical study, chest X-ray, electrocardiography, computerized tomography scan and brain panangiography. The study was(More)
Plasmatic hyperviscosity is a known vascular risk factor which depends, among other parameters, upon total proteins, haematocrit value and fibrinogen. The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between these analytical haemorrological parameters and mortality and acute stroke sickness rate. We studied 216 patients with brain infarct and(More)
INTRODUCTION Arterial hypertension and hypohyalinosis of the arterias perforantes are said to be the commonest cause of lacunar infarcts, although other etiological factors and anatomo-pathological lesions are described more and more frequently. We designed a study to compare the clinical topographic and prognostic characteristics of patients with(More)
