INTRODUCTION The Real Ordinance 2070/1999 meant an important modification in the legislation, when including transcranial Doppler (TCD) in explorations to confirm the clinical diagnosis of brain death (BD). Habitually for their employment in the diagnosis of BD, we look for blood flow signal from the middle cerebral arteries (MCA) and the basilar artery(More)
INTRODUCTION Transient global amnesia (TGA) is a clinical condition in which the etiopathogenesis is still not clear. The most generally accepted theory is of a vascular origin, although epilepsy or migraine have also been considered to possibly be the cause. OBJECTIVE To make a retrospective review of the risk factors, etiopathogenesis and clinical(More)
INTRODUCTION As neurologists we often find it necessary to use antipsychotics in our clinical practice. They are not only used in the treatment of the behavioural disorders accompanying dementias, but also in the psychotic symptoms that frequently appear or complicate the clinical progress of our patients suffering from Parkinson. PATIENTS AND METHODS(More)
To examine the effects of different types of goal setting on motor skill acquisition during advanced stages of learning. 44 female volleyball players were tested in four experimental training groups with generic goals, specific long-term goals, specific short-term goals, and as a control group. This study's pretest, training, and retention test phases used(More)
INTRODUCTION The presence of neuropsychiatry symptoms (hallucinations, delusions and agitation) as stroke-related guideline symptoms, thus forming an acute psychosis of organic cause, are extremely uncommon and often correlate with strategic infarcts (caudate nucleus, striatum and thalamus). CLINICAL CASE We report two cases of stroke-psychosis. Case 1. A(More)
INTRODUCTION Cerebral gliomatosis is an infiltrating, non destructive process of glial type, with a diffuse growth pattern and great clinical variation in the initial symptoms. Confirmation of the diagnosis requires histological study of the lesion showing infiltration by well differentiated mature astrocytes (atypical forms are rare). We report three cases(More)
INTRODUCTION The term amnesic stroke is used to describe a condition in which the dominant symptom is a relatively persistent acute amnesia of a vascular origin. It may appear in cases of lesions in the posterior cerebral artery (PCA), thalamic arteries and anterior choroidal artery, and clinical reports describing this condition are scarce. CASE REPORT(More)
INTRODUCTION Stroke is very seldom seen as the first manifestation of a neoplasia. The mechanisms that are most frequently involved in its pathogenesis are Trousseau's syndrome, haematological disorders such as disseminated intravascular coagulation or thrombocytosis, and the release of mucin by the tumour. Secondarily, non bacterial thrombotic(More)
INTRODUCTION Pseudotumor cerebri (PC) is a complex syndrome characterized by increased intracranial pressure in the absence of any space occupying lesion, usually self limiting, but often relapsing. Diagnosis is based on a record of intracranial pressure of over a limit of 250 mmH2O. Morbidity is basically due to possible loss of vision associated with(More)
