OBJECTIVES Brain damage following a perinatal hypoxic-ischemic (HI) insult has been documented by different diagnostic techniques. The aim of the present study was to relate a-EEG time course during the first 24h of life to brain metabolic changes detected by proton MR spectroscopy ((1)H-MRS) at 7-10days of life and to evaluate their correlation with(More)
BACKGROUND Brain Cooling (BC) represents the elective treatment in asphyxiated newborns. Amplitude Integrated Electroencephalography (aEEG) and Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) monitoring may help to evaluate changes in cerebral electrical activity and cerebral hemodynamics during hypothermia. OBJECTIVES To evaluate the prognostic value of aEEG time(More)
INTRODUCTION MRI, proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (¹H-MRS), and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) have been shown to be of great prognostic value in term newborns with moderate-severe hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE). Currently, no data are available on ¹H-MRS and DTI performed in the subacute phase after hypothermic treatment. The aim of the(More)
UNLABELLED End to end hypoglossal-facial nerve anastomosis (tt HFA) is a traditional technique for rehabilitation of facial palsy. The sacrifice of the hypoglossal nerve generates a paralysis and an atrophy of the tongue which is thought to lead to speech, chewing and swallowing disorders. In a previous study, we demonstrated that tt HFA does not lead to(More)
In upper middle age healthy subjects the functional cardiac reserve is known to be decreased (Port et al., 1980; Aubert et al., 1994). On the other hand regular physical exercise improves the cardiovascular function (Nishimura et al., 1980). The aim of this study was to establish whether regular physical exercise is associated with a significant change in(More)
