INTRODUCTION: Lesions in ipsilateral systems related to postural control in the ipsilesional side may justify the lower performance of stroke subjects during walking. PURPOSE: To analyze bilateral ankle antagonist coactivation during double support in stroke subjects. METHODS: Sixteen (8 females; 8 males) subjects with a first isquemic stroke and 22 controls (12 females; 10 males) participated in this study. The double-support phase was assessed through ground reaction forces and the electromyography of ankle muscles was assessed in both limbs...

OBJECTIVES: The ortopantomography (OPG) can be a valuable way for an early detection of calcified atheroma plaques, thus contributing for a preliminary stroke risk evaluation. The study looks for the existence of calcified atheroma plates through the use of OPG, comparing the results with the stenosis percentage found through eco-doppler. It has been analyzed the correlation of the number of years as a smoker, arterial hypertension and body mass index, against the risk of having calcified atheroma plaques...

In this review the meaning of cerebral hemispheric function is discussed with special emphasis in non-dominant cerebral hemisphere and particularly in the lesion of commissural, association, projection of white matter fibers. Clinical characteristics depend on etiology, localization, extension and particularly the period of brain development. The following are common findings in these patients: left hemiplegia, abnormal prosody and non verbal communication, anomalies visiospatial perception, organization, and social interaction...

INTRODUCTION: The acute vertebrobasilar occlussion is usually a life-treatening disease leading to death or major disability. The treatment with heparin and the selective fibrinolysis no show good results, for this reason the local intra-arterial fibrinolysis appear as the choice treatment in patients with stroke and a agiography with basilar artery occlussion or intracranial vertebral artery occlusion. This tecnique has been proved to be effective treatment for selected patients with acute thromboembolic occlusion of the middle cerebral artery, ophthalmic artery and vertebrobasilar system, reducing the mortality in the vertebrobasilar system from 90% to 40%...

BACKGROUND: To describe the evolution of cardiovascular profile in a sample of the Spanish general population. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Study cohort of 1,800 subjects from the Diet and Cardiovascular Risk in Spain study (DRECE I) with and without cardiovascular risk according to Spanish Society of Arteriosclerosis guidelines (CRSSA) followed during five years. RESULTS: Mean follow up was 4.8 years. High blood pressure (>= 140/90 mmHg), total cholesterol > 200 mg/dl, triglycerides > 150 mg/dl and HDLc < 35 mg/dl were present in a 55...

OBJECTIVES: Several clinical trials have demonstrated that antithrombotic treatment may be effective in prevention of stroke in nonrheumatic atrial fibrillation (AF). The aim of this study was to assess if we follow clinical trial recommendations in community practice. METHODS: We analyzed 225 medical records of patients diagnosed of nonrheumatic AF in Cáceres, during February and March 1998. Patients who were contraindicated to follow antiagreggation or anti-coagulation treatment were excluded...

The authors present a case of left atrial myxoma with stroke in an 8-year-old female child. The tumor was removed and two months after the surgery a left atrial septum mass was observed suggesting recurrence. The child was asymptomatic. Literature review emphasizes the rarity and clinically aggressive behavior of this tumor at this age group and demonstrates rare recurrence rates after surgery.

We have studied prospectively 157 patients with stroke admitted at University Hospital and Hospital Santa Genoveva in Uberlandia, Brazil at the point of view of clinics and epidemiology. Incidence was 0.8/1000 peoples/year and early letality of stroke victims was 40%, only 30% had returned to work. Complete infarct account for 36.3% of the cases and was predominant in white man among stroke population. Hypertension (in 55% of the cases), Chagas' disease (26.1%), transient isquemic attack (22.7%) and hypercolesterolemia were the main risk factors for stroke in this region...

After brief comments about the angiographic findings on 298 consecutive cases of isquemic or hemorrhagic cerebral vascular strokes, cerebral angiography is emphasized as the main diagnostic method, owing to the variety of physiopathogenic and ethiologic factors involved in the genesis of this syndromes. The results of surgical treatment on eleven patients with spontaneous intracerebral hematomata are discussed in detail. Despite the great divergence among the authors about the management of massive intracerebral hemorrhage, the rapid improvement in 54...
