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)
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)
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)
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)
BACKGROUND Although there is abundant literature about the morbidity and mortality rates of status epilepticus (SE), little is known about the risk factors of this medical emergency. The aim of the present study is to assess the risk factors of SE in children. METHODS The authors reviewed the medical records of 83 patients admitted to the Pediatric(More)
BACKGROUND Although surgical decompression of large hemispheric infarction is often a life-saving procedure, many patients remain functionally dependent. The aims of this study were to identify specific factors that can be used to predict functional outcome, thus establish predictive criteria to reduce poor surgical results. METHOD In this non-randomized(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)
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)
A reversible change on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) following generalised seizure mimicking a tumour-like structural lesion is reported in a 15-year-old patient. MRI revealed a left fronto-parietal cortico-subcortical lesion on T2 weighted images. The control MRI after 5 weeks from the onset revealed no pathological finding. The reversible MRI changes(More)
