OBJECTIVES The aim of our study is to determine the prevalence of migraine in Provincial Center of Edirne. METHODS A systematic random sample of 386 inhabitants over 14 years old were interviewed face to face. Diagnosis of migraine was based on the International Headache Society (IHS) classification. RESULTS Migraine was identified in 77 subjects (60(More)
BACKGROUND ischemic strokes occurring in patients younger than 47 years is a relatively rare event and accounts for less than 5% of all ischemic strokes in western countries. OBJECTIVE the etiologic spectrum in younger patients and older patients differs considerably. METHODS in this hospital case series study, we enrolled 192 patients with ischemic(More)
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is the most common entrapment neuropathy. Many factors such as diabetes mellitus, hypothyroidism, hormonal replacement therapy, corticosteroid use, rheumatoid arthritis and wrist fractures may cause CTS. Metabolic syndrome includes abdominal obesity, dyslipidemia, hyperglycemia, and hypertension that may cause CTS. In this(More)
A 45-year-old woman presented with subacute encephalopathy due to autoimmune Graves disease. MR angiography (MRA) demonstrated stenosis of the major intracerebral arteries. After high-dose methylprednisolone therapy and plasmapheresis, her neurologic status improved dramatically, and the MRA findings resolved after 3 months. The angiographic findings in(More)
OBJECTIVE In patients with large artery disease, determining the cerebral hemodynamic state and following its alterations may be a good marker for predicting long-term outcome. The aim of our study was to compare the changes in vasomotor reactivity (VMR) of patients with symptomatic intracranial and extracranial artery stenosis. We also examined whether VMR(More)
Progressive myelopathy is a rare neurological complication of chronic liver disease with portal hypertension and there is no special diagnostic tool for hepatic myelopathy. Neuropathological studies of the patients with hepatic myelopathy have demonstrated demyelination of the lateral corticospinal tracts with various degree of axonal loss. Transcranial(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Primary pontine hemorrhage (PPH) accounts approximately for about 5-10% of intracranial hemorrhages, and PPHs are known to have a much less uniform prognosis. We aimed to evaluate the clinical and radiological predictors affecting the mortality in 32 patients with PPH. MATERIAL AND METHODS We retrospectively evaluated the data of 32(More)
The coagulation system is activated and coagulation activation markers are elevated in acute ischemic stroke with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF). The etiology, severity, and prognosis of the ischemic stroke might be estimated with the level of the activation of the coagulation system. In this study, prothrombin F1+2 (F1+2), D-dimer, and fibrinogen(More)
Cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) is rare and has a wide spectrum of symptoms, therefore it is difficult to diagnose. Thrombosis of the deep cerebral veins occurs very rarely: it has been reported that approximately 6% of patients with CVT have deep CVT, and the prognosis for patients with this condition is poor. CVT has been reported in association with(More)
OBJECTIVE Diabetes mellitus is an independent risk factor for poor prognosis in patients with ischemic stroke. It is known that diabetes mellitus directly affects cerebral vasculature as a secondary, long-term complication of cerebral circulation, and causes cerebral blood flow abnormalities. The abnormalities of cerebral autoregulation also poorly affects(More)
