1. A study of syntactic processing in aphasia II: Neurological aspects.
Match Strength: 5.296
This paper presents the results of a study of the effects of left hemisphere strokes on syntactically-based comprehension in aphasic patients. We studied 42 patients with aphasia secondary to left hemisphere strokes and 25 control subjects for the ability to assign and interpret three syntactic structures (passives, object extracted relative clauses, and reflexive pronouns) in enactment, sentence-picture matching and grammaticality judgment tasks. We measured accuracy, RT and self-paced listening times in SPM and GJ. We obtained magnetic resonance (MR) and 5-deoxyglucose positron emission ... Read More »

2. Transesophageal echocardiography through nasal way as a guide to percutaneous closure of patent foramen ovale.
Match Strength: 3.678
Percutaneous device closure of patent foramen ovale (PFO) has become an effective and safe alternative to medical or surgery treatment. Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE), as commonly used to guide this procedure, has the limitation to require general anesthesia. Recently, intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) with AcuNav probe was used to guide percutaneous PFO closure. We report a 42 year-old man with two previous cryptogenetic strokes in whom both diagnosis and guidance of PFO closure were performed by means of TEE using the AcuNav catheter introduced through nasal way (TEENW). This ... Read More »

3. Bilateral posterior medullary and cervical stroke: a case report.
Match Strength: 3.623
Spinal strokes are often localised in the anterior spinal artery territory, whereas an involvement of the posterior spinal arteries (PSA) is uncommon, and usually unilateral. Bilateral PSA stroke is exceptional. A 70-year-old woman, after a mild head trauma, presented with cervical pain, left hypoaesthesia and sensitive ataxia, which then extended to the right hemibody, including face. A Doppler ultrasound showed an only systolic flow signal in the left vertebral artery (VA). MR showed a bilateral infarction extending from the posterior medulla oblongata to C4 and a left hypoplasic VA with ... Read More »

4. Five-year survival-after first-ever stroke.
Match Strength: 3.151
The aim of the study was to analyze the 5-year survival after first-ever ischemic stroke and intracerebral hemorrhage. In this study 836 patients were analyzed with a first-ever stroke admitted at the Department of Neurology Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina, from January 1(st) 1997 to December 31(st) 1998. Of these 613 (73,3%) were ischemic strokes and 223 intracerebral hemorrhages (26,7%) Subarachnoid hemorrhages were excluded. After hospitalization surviving patients examined periodically, and a final examination was performed 5 years after the stroke. Overall, case-fatility at the first month ... Read More »

5. A study of syntactic processing in aphasia I: Behavioral (psycholinguistic) aspects.
Match Strength: 2.670
This paper presents the results of a study of syntactically based comprehension in aphasic patients. We studied 42 patients with aphasia secondary to left hemisphere strokes and 25 control participants. We measured off-line, end-of-sentence, performance (accuracy and reaction time) in two tasks that require comprehension-enactment and sentence-picture matching-and in grammaticality judgment, with whole sentence auditory presentation. We also used sentence-picture matching and grammaticality judgment as tasks in two self-paced listening studies with the same patients to measure on-line ... Read More »

6. The peristaltic reflex induced by short-chain fatty acids is mediated by sequential release of 5-HT and neuronal CGRP but not BDNF.
Match Strength: 2.605
Short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) accelerate colonic transit. This study examined whether this action was mediated by activation of the peristaltic reflex. SCFAs (acetate, butyrate, or propionate) were applied to the central compartment of a three-compartment flat-sheet preparation of the rat middle to distal colon. The release of serotonin (5-HT), brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), and CGRP was measured in all three compartments. Ascending contraction and descending relaxation were measured in the orad and caudad compartments. The addition of SCFAs at physiological to supraphysiological ... Read More »
