[New data in the classification, diagnostic and in the therapy of cerebrovascular diseases]

NAGY Zoltán

[High stroke morbidity and mortality in Hungary have focused to attention on stroke prevention and the organization of adequate therapy. Up till 1990 both cardiovascular and the cerebrovascular mortality had increased. The Precise analysis risk factors' determines the primary and secondary stroke prevention. The most important issues in of prevention are: proper care of hypertension, gradual change of dietary habits of the Hungarian population, and reduction of smoking. The revised stroke... tovább »

[NMDA antagonists: possible kinetic and neuroprotective effect with special regard to parkinson's disease]

TAKÁTS Annamária

[The role of excitatory amino acids in the pathomechanism of several neuropsychiatric disorders became known in the last few years. Special attention is paid to glutamate, since this has proved to be an excitotoxin under certain pathological conditions. It acts through the ion-channel of the NMDA receptors via enormous Ca++ ion flow into the cell. NMDA antagonists may be of importance in the treatment of Parkinson's disease, which is characterized by increased glutamate hyperactivity. The... tovább »

[Arteriovenous malformation and occlusive cerebrovascular disease]

BODOSI Mihály, KUNCZ Ádám, DÓCZI Tamás, BARZÓ Pál, VÖRÖS Erika

[Five rare case histories of intracranial occlusive cerebrovascular disease with arteriovenous malformation are presented. In 2 cases the middle cerebral artery and in a further 2 cases the internal carotid artery were occluded (3 ipsilateral frontal and 1 parietal angiomas). In the fifth case a temporal angioma and ipsilateral posterior cerebral artery occlusion was detected. In the first 4 cases extra-intracranial arterial bypass was performed before the excision of the malformation. ]

[The role of PCR in the diagnosis of duchenne/becker muscular dystrophy]

FODOR Flóra, MECHLER Ferenc, DIÓSZEGHY Péter, ÁDÁNY Róza

[The majority of Duchenne/Becker muscular dystrophy (DMD/BMD) cases are caused by deletions affecting exons of the dystrophin gene, which results in defective protein synthesis. In order to detect deletions the multiplex PCR method was utilized on the DNA of 15 DMD/BMD patients by amplifying 9 deletion-prone exons as a first step followed by a further 5 exons when necessary. Delection were found in more than 50% of patients by this method which correlates well with that expected from the... tovább »

[Fibrinogen as a general risk factor in stroke ]

SZIRMAI Imre, KAMONDI Anita

[Fibrinogen and other laboratory variables of 348 patients with various types of stroke were statistically analysed in the acute, subacute and chronic stage of the disease. Seventy two patients with non-vascular disease served as control. The actual level of plasma fibrinogen in cerebrovascular patients was attributed to the following factors: 1. presence of atherosclerotic plaques in extra and intracranial arteries, 2. the time lag between the onset of stroke and laboratory testing, 3. degre... tovább »

A case of cervical osteochondroma with spinal cord compression and central cord syndrome is reported, and the pathological, clinical and radiological features are discussed with a brief review of the literature.]
