Neurogenic myocardial injury occurs as a result of dysregulation of autonomic nervous system. The aim of this study was to explore the frequency of elevated troponin and dynamic ST segment/T wave changes and their relation with left ventricular (LV) systolic functions in acute ischemic stroke patients. One hundred and twenty-five patients (mean age: 65.1±15.2years, 76 male) presenting with acute ischemic stroke were consecutively included. 12-lead electrocardiogram was taken to assess dynamic... tovább »

[The role of intravenous thrombolysis before mechanical thrombectomy in the treatment of large vessel occlusion strokes ]

KALMÁR Péter János, TÁRKÁNYI Gábor, KARÁDI Zsófia Nozomi, BOSNYÁK Edit, NAGY Csaba Balázs, CSÉCSEI Péter, LENZSÉR Gábor, BÜKI András, JANSZKY József, SZAPÁRY László

[The efficacy of intravenous thrombolysis (IVT) is moderate in the proximal vascular segments of intracranial arteries, as opposed to mecha­nical thrombectomy (MT). In the management of acute ischemic stroke (AIS) caused by large vessel occlusions (LVO), IVT prior to MT is highly recommended based on the latest guidelines, but the necessity of IVT has been questioned by the latest studies of the past years. The aim of our study was to investigate and compare the efficacy and safety of direct... tovább »

DÉNES Zoltán, MASÁT Orsolya

[To assess the rehabilitation outcome after severe traumatic brain injury. Retrospective evaluation of the rehabilitation process and prospective follow-up five years after discharge. Patients – Patients treated in 2013 at the Traumatic Brain Injury Unit, National Institute for Medical Rehabilitation were included in the study (n = 232). Ninety-nine of 232 patients were treated with severe traumatic brain injury. Data were available for 66/99 patients (67%). Fifty patients (13 women and 37... tovább »

Uric acid: The role in the pathophysiology and the prediction in the diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease: A Turkish-based study

ARI Cagla Buse , TUR Kobak Esma , DOMAC Mayda Fusun , KENANGIL Ozgen Gulay

Oxidative stress has been associated as an essential contributor to the development of neurodegenerative diseases. Recent developments in the field of Parkinson’s Disease (PD) pathophysiology have led to a renewed interest in this field. As an antioxidant, uric acid (UA) has arisen as a potential neuroprotectant. Higher concentrations of UA are linked to reducing the risk of the development of the disease and preventing its progression. However, the expositions are unsatisfactory because the... tovább »

Lower / upper extremity F-wave ratio for detecting early diabetic neuropathy

ÜNLÜTÜRK Zeynep, TEKIN Selma, ERDOĞAN Çağdaş

Results of conventional nerve conduction studies may be within normal limits in early diabetic neuropathy. Previous studies demonstrated that F-wave latency should be used to detect this early neuropathic process. The aim of this study is to evaluate the sensitivity of lower/upper extremity F latency ratios in detecting the early neuropathy in patients with diabetic neuropathic pain. 44 patients with diabetic neuropathic pain (DNP) and 44 control subjects whose both conventional nerve... tovább »

[Use of the ankle-brachial index in occupational healthcare]

SZOBOTA Lívia, HIRDI Henriett Éva

[Elevated risk of fatal and non-fatal cardiovascular events is associated with high prevalence of peripheral arterial disease (PAD). Nurses working in occupational healthcare are ideally situated to identify individuals with undiagnosed PAD. The aim of the study: This study aimed to demonstrate that the ankle-brachial index (ABI) is a tool to be used by occupational health nurses in prevention of cardiovascular disease (CVD). A cross-sectional study was carried out with patients (N=638) from... tovább »
