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)
OBJECTIVE Cerebral herniation resulting from postischemic brain edema is the most common cause of death in patients with large cerebral infarctions. Early monitoring of intracranial pressure and application of necessary treatment procedures may have life-saving value. In this study, the data obtained by transcranial Doppler sonography were compared with(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 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)
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)
Marchiafava-Bignami disease (MBD) associated with chronic alcoholism is a fatal disorder characterized by demyelination of the corpus callosum. It is diagnosed by the imaging of demyelination at the corpus callosum with MRI. This lesion is not only limited to the corpus callosum but also affects the cortico-cortical and cortico-subcortical projections due(More)
OBJECTIVE Acquired stuttering is uncommon, and is reported anecdotally after head injury and cerebrovascular diseases. Although this entity is described to occur in lesions of dominant hemisphere, it is rarely shown to occur in non-dominant hemispheric and subcortical lesions, too. Therefore we described a case with this rare syndrome and we discussed the(More)
Primary brain hemorrhage and infarction only very rarely occur simultaneously. We report a patient with the simultaneous onset of hemorrhagic and ischemic strokes who had uncontrolled hypertension and atrial fibrillation. Neuroradiologic investigations revealed a large right thalamic hematoma with ventricular extension and an infarct in the territory of the(More)
