Ninety-four eases of carotid exploration and endarterectomy have been analyzed. Although endarterectomy helps reduce recurrent attacks of focal abnormality, in a certain number focal abnormalities may continue to exist. After successful endarterectomy patients still develop infarction, intracerebral hemorrhage and other incapacitating or fatal vascular lesions. Although transient ischemic episodes may frequently be due to stenotic lesions of the carotid bifurcation and the cerebral artery, there are many other causes that result in similar recurrent attacks of focal abnormality. Careful evaluation of these patients may show the way for better management whether the difficulty is in the neck or in the head.

    A number of case reports have highlighted the occurrence of parkinsonism following strategic infarcts affecting the basal ganglia but the prevalence of parkinsonism after striatal infarcts (SI) has not been assessed. Therefore, we evaluated the clinical features and prevalence of parkinsonism in...

    Background: The microsurgical anatomy of the middle cerebral artery (MCA) is of particular interest to the cerebrovascular surgeon. The purpose of this study was to define the microsurgical anatomy of the MCA and its various branches in the Indian population. Methods: Ten MCAs were studied from...

    Abstract We studied the microscopic features of 137 cases of human cerebral infarct. In each case, the age of the lesion was determined by measuring the time elapsed between initial clinical presentation and date of surgery or death. Multiple microscopic variables were analyzed on hematoxylin...

    Adenosine is an endogenous neuromodulator with anticonvulsive and neuroprotective activity. Adenosine levels are normally kept in the range of 20 to 200 nmol/L by low basal expression of its main metabolic enzyme, adenosine kinase (ADK). Dysfunction of the adenosinergic system has been...

    Significantly decreased blood flow velocity in cerebral arteries, as well as decreased erythrocyte deformability, was found in heavy alcohol drinkers (Gdovinová 2002). The aim of this study was to determine if there is any correlation between the two. At the same time, the correlation between...
