    Some analogy exists between cognitive impairment in hypoxemic patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and Alzheimer's disease (AD). We purposed to verify whether the analogy extends to the cerebral perfusion pattern. Ten normal subjects, 15 COPD patients with and 18 without...

    This study was performed on a group of 50 patients admitted in 2008 in the Neurology Department, Emergency Hospital Constanta, whose cerebral MRI revealed leukoaraiosis. Our purpose was to correlate leukoaraiosis with associated vascular pathologies. With the help of brain MRI leukoaraiosis was...

    BACKGROUND: Cerebral small vessel disease is a common cause of vascular dementia. Both discrete lacunar infarcts and more diffuse ischaemic changes, seen as confluent high signal (leukoaraiosis) on T2 weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), occur. However, there is a weak correlation between...

    Background: Cerebral small vessel disease is a common cause of cognitive impairment and vascular dementia. The cognitive deficit differs from that in Alzheimer's disease, with greater executive/attentional dysfunction and relatively intact episodic memory. Objective: To develop brief assessment...

    Our aim was to study the correlations between cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) biomarker levels such as β-amyloid 42 (Aβ42), total and phosphorylated tau protein (T-tau and P-tau) and brain perfusion SPECT in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) using a voxel-based methodology. Patients ( n = 31) with...

    Emerging evidence suggests that Alzheimer's disease (AD) and Parkinson's disease dementia (PDD) share neurodegenerative mechanisms. We sought to directly compare cerebral perfusion in these two conditions using arterial spin labeling magnetic resonance imaging (ASL-MRI). In total, 17 AD, 20 PDD,...

    With the prospect of disease-modifying drugs that will target the physiopathological process of Alzheimer's disease, it is now crucial to increase the understanding of the atypical focal presentations of Alzheimer's disease, such as posterior cortical atrophy. This study aimed to (i)...
