Subjects and Methods. We analysed 5000 cerebrovascular ultrasound records. A total of 0.4% of the patients had common carotid artery occlusion (CCAO). Results. The mean age was 59.8 ± 14.2 years, and the male/female ratio was 2.33. The most frequent risk factors were hypertension, ischaemic heart disease, dyslipidemia, diabetes mellitus, and smoking.(More)
BACKGROUND Hypertensive (HT) patients are at higher risk of cognitive decline than normotensive individuals, because high blood pressure is a risk factor for mild cognitive deterioration. In this study cardio- and cerebrovascular reactivity along with cognitive performance was assessed on newly diagnosed HT patients. METHODS Diagnosis of hypertension was(More)
A 56-year-old man with a 15-year history of lupus ery-thematosus and well-controlled arterial hypertension developed progressively hypophonia, severe dysphagia, and weakness in the left shoulder.
