HAND ARTERIOGRAPHY: PRELIMINARY STUDIES
- Drugs in cerebral and peripheral arterial disease. Lowe, Gordon D.O. // BMJ: British Medical Journal (International Edition);2/24/90, Vol. 300 Issue 6723, p524
Presents drugs used in treating cerebral and peripheral arterial disease in Great Britain. Decrease on the packed cell volume by dextran infusions; Reduction of cerebral oedema by glycerol; Increase of oxidative metabolism by Naftidrofuryl.
- Alpha-Lipoic Acid Improves Diabetic Neuropathy. Dye, Dayna // Life Extension;Feb2007, Vol. 13 Issue 2, p16
The article suggests that alpha-lipoic acid improves symptomatic diabetic polyneuropathy, a painful condition of the nerves that affects many diabetics. It highlights the results of a multicenter, randomized, double-blind trial of 181 diabetics with symptoms of distal symmetric polyneuropathy....
- Remission of chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy following ademotonsillectomy. Harsha, Wayne J.; Goco, Paulino E.; Crawford, James V. // ENT: Ear, Nose & Throat Journal;Jul2003, Vol. 82 Issue 7, p520
Patients with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) experience proximal- and distalextremity weakness, sensory loss, and often hyporeflexia or areflexia. CIDP is associated with a variety of concomitant medical illnesses, which often manifest weeks before the onset of muscle...
- Magnetic resonance imaging changes in a case of extrapyramidal syndrome after acute organophosphate poisoning. Goel, Deepak; Singhal, Anil; Srivastav, Rajender K.; Verma, Amit; Lamba, Anurag // Neurology India;Jun2006, Vol. 54 Issue 2, p207
Distal symmetrical polyneuropathy and neuromuscular weakness is common neurological problem in recovery phase of acute organophosphate (OP) poisoning. Various types of extra pyramidal syndromes are uncommon sequel after OP poisoning. These are reported to be reversible within few weeks and...
- Small Fiber Neuropathy: Making the Diagnosis. Latov, Norman // Neurology Alert;Aug2008, Vol. 26 Issue 12, p93
In the setting of chronic pain in a pattern consistent with polyneuropathy, determination of intraepidermal nerve fiber density (IENFD) is the most sensitive diagnostic test.
- Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy with Reversible Dementia: A New Clinical Entity? Dorman, Christine; Samaniego, Jorge // Hawaii Journal of Medicine & Public Health;Sep2013 Supplement 4, Vol. 72 Issue 9, p49
Introduction: Classic chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP), an acquired demyelination of peripheral nerves and nerve roots presents with symmetric motor and sensory involvement, weakness in proximal and distal muscles, globally diminished or absent reflexes, painful...
- Associations between Peripheral Arterial Disease and Leg Function. // Annals of Internal Medicine;6/18/2002, Vol. 136 Issue 12, pI-32
Investigates the associations between peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and leg function in the U.S. Causes of pain in calves during walking; Inability of the patient to maintain a tandem stand; Reduction of blood supply to tissues.
- Advanced Glycation End-Products and Arterial Stiffness in Hypertension. McNulty, Marie; Mahmud, Azra; Feely, John // American Journal of Hypertension;Mar2007, Vol. 20 Issue 3, p242
Background: The formation of advanced glycation end-products is associated with arterial stiffness in experimental models and alagebrium (formerly known as ALT-711), an advanced glycation end-product cross-link breaker, has been shown to reduce arterial stiffness in elderly subjects. Methods: We...
- Types of the cerebral arterial circle (circle of Willis) in a Sri Lankan Population. De Silva, K. Ranil D.; Silva, Rukmal; Amaratunga, Dhammika; Gunasekera, W. S. L.; Jayesekera, Rohan W. // BMC Neurology;2011, Vol. 11 Issue 1, p1
Background: The variations of the circle of Willis (CW) are clinically important as patients with effective collateral circulations have a lower risk of transient ischemic attack and stroke than those with ineffective collaterals. The aim of the present cadaveric study was to investigate the...
