Background: A stroke occurs when not enough blood reaches the brain. When stroke symptoms last less than a day, that is a transient ischemic attack (TIA). Researchers want to study how st...
Fluid overload increases morbidity and mortality of pediatrics patients in ICU [1, 2, 3.] It could be interesting to predict the decrease in stroke volume when diuretics are prescribed. Ne...
Stroke, the most common cause of permanent disability, the second most common cause of dementia and third most common cause of death, has tremendous socio-economic consequences. Currently...
Retrospective study, single-center, on 171 patients, presented a cryptogenic TIA and Minor stroke. This study objective is to determine profitability of Holter 21 days for screening ...
Purpose: Fluid responsiveness in a context of circulatory failure can be predicted by different way. Dynamic criteria such as pulse pressure variation, stroke volume variation during an ...
Stroke is a disastrous disease and a major health burden worldwide, especially in Korea. Hemorrhagic stroke (HS) accounts for approximately 20% of all the types of strokes. It is important to be able ...
There has been conflicting results regarding the role of ferritin, a nonspecific marker of systemic inflammation, in the development of coronary heart disease (CHD). We aimed to evaluate the associati...
It remains controversial whether measures of general or abdominal adiposity are better risk predictors for ischemic stroke. Furthermore, so far it is unclear whether body fat mass index (BFMI) and fat...
An increasing proportion of patients presenting with suspected stroke prove to have other conditions, often referred to as stroke mimics. The aim of this study was to present a projection of the numbe...
The dominant factor limiting the intrinsic spatial resolution of a positron emission tomography (PET) system is the size of the crystal elements in the detector. To increase sensitivity and achieve hi...
Contractions of the abdominal muscles upon stimulation of the skin (superficial abdominal reflex) or tapping neighboring bony structures (deep abdominal reflex). The superficial reflex may be weak or absent, for example, after a stroke, a sign of upper (suprasegmental) motor neuron lesions. (Stedman, 25th ed & Best & Taylor's Physiological Basis of Medical Practice, 12th ed, p1073)
An imaging technique that combines a POSITRON-EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY (PET) scanner and a CT X RAY scanner. This establishes a precise anatomic localization in the same session.
A protrusion of abdominal structures through the retaining ABDOMINAL WALL. It involves two parts: an opening in the abdominal wall, and a hernia sac consisting of PERITONEUM and abdominal contents. Abdominal hernias include groin hernia (HERNIA, FEMORAL; HERNIA, INGUINAL) and VENTRAL HERNIA.
Restoration of functions to the maximum degree possible in a person or persons suffering from a stroke.
Surgical removal of excess abdominal skin and fat and tightening of the ABDOMINAL WALL. Abdominoplasty may include LIPECTOMY of INTRA-ABDOMINAL FAT, tightening of the ABDOMINAL MUSCLES, and re-creation of the UMBILICUS.
