High-resolution magnetic resonance imaging for the follow-up of intracranial arterial dissections.

Acta Neurol Belg 2020 Jul 10. Epub 2020 Jul 10.

Department of Neurology, Korea University Ansan Hospital, Korea University College of Medicine, Gojan 1-Dong, Danwon-Gu, Ansan-si, Gyeonggi-Do, 152-703, Republic of Korea.

High-resolution magnetic resonance imaging (HRMRI) with a 3-T system can be utilized to identify intracranial arterial dissections (ICADs) as it reveals more than three key features with better clarity than other conventional imaging modalities. This study aimed to assess the changes in the key features of ICADs on HRMRI over time. We screened patients who had undergone HRMRI within 7 days of symptom onset for the evaluation of characteristics associated with intracranial steno-occlusive lesions. Read More

Red blood cell distribution width as mortality biomarker in patients with traumatic brain injury.

Acta Neurol Belg 2020 Jun 15. Epub 2020 Jun 15.

Department of Neurosurgery, Hospital Universitario de Canarias, Ofra s/n, La Laguna, 38320, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain.

One study found higher red blood cell distribution width (RDW) on the admission of traumatic brain injury (TBI) in non-surviving patients; however, a regression analysis was not carried out to establish an association between RDW and TBI mortality. Thus, the objectives of this study were to determine whether there is an association between RDW and TBI mortality, and to describe the temporal profile of RDW during the first week. Isolated (< 10 points in non-cranial aspects of Injury Severity Score) and severe (< 9 points in Glasgow Coma Scale) TBI patients were included. Read More

Neurological manifestations of COVID-19, SARS and MERS.

Acta Neurol Belg 2020 Jun 19. Epub 2020 Jun 19.

Department of Neurology, Dimpna Regional Hospital, JB Stessenstraat 2, 2440, Geel, Belgium.

Since December 2019, the world is affected by an outbreak of a new disease named COVID-19, which is an acronym of 'coronavirus disease 2019'. Coronaviruses (CoV) were assumed to be associated with mild upper respiratory tract infections, such as common cold. This perception changed in time due to occurrence of the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) caused by SARS-CoV in 2002 and the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) caused by MERS-CoV in 2012, both inducing an epidemic severe viral pneumonia with potentially respiratory failure and numerous extra-pulmonary manifestations.

Inflammatory oedema of nerve trunks may be pathogenic in very early Guillain-Barré syndrome.

Authors:
José Berciano

Acta Neurol Belg 2020 Jun 18. Epub 2020 Jun 18.

Service of Neurology, Centro de Investigación Biomédica en Red de Enfermedades Neurodegenerativas (CIBERNED), University Hospital "Marqués de Valdecilla (IDIVAL)", University of Cantabria, Santander, Spain.

The aim of this paper is to analyse the pathological background of very early Guillain-Barré (VEGBS) (≤ 4 days after onset) comparing it with initial stages of experimental autoimmune neuritis (EAN). The pathological hallmark of VEGBS is inflammatory oedema predominating in proximal nerve trunks. In EAN inflammatory oedema precedes the development of demyelination or axonal degeneration; such oedema may increase endoneurial fluid pressure (EFP) stretching the perineurium and constricting the transperineurial microcirculation.

Aberrant expression of miR-199a in newborns with hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy and its diagnostic and prognostic significance when combined with S100B and NSE.

Acta Neurol Belg 2020 Jun 12. Epub 2020 Jun 12.

Department of Pediatrics, Women and Children's Health Care Hospital of Linyi, No.1, Qinghe South Road, Linyi, 276001, Shandong, China.

Neonatal hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) is a disorder mainly due to asphyxia during the perinatal period, and late diagnosis leads to high mortality. In this study, the expression of microRNA-199a (miR-199a) in HIE newborns was investigated, as well as its clinical significance in HIE diagnosis and prognosis. Circulating levels of S100B and NSE in HIE newborns were measured using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, and the expression of miR-199a was analyzed using quantitative real-time PCR. Read More

In adults with vitamin B12 deficiency, an inverse correlation between the severity of megaloblastic anemia and the degree of neurological dysfunction has been reported. We aimed to evaluate the association between hematological findings and the results of neurodevelopmental assessment in infants. Denver-II developmental screening test (DDST II) was performed in vitamin B12-deficient infants (n = 122), and its relationship with hematological findings was evaluated. Read More

Effects of dual task on gait velocity and cadence in cerebral palsied children with spastic hemiparesis or diparesis.

Acta Neurol Belg 2020 May 24. Epub 2020 May 24.

Department of Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation, Faculty of Health Science, Avrasya University, Trabzon, Turkey.

Gait is generally considered an automated process with little or no cognitive input. In most individuals with Cerebral Palsy (CP), walking restrictions may accompany during childhood and adolescence. The aim of this study was to determine the effects of dual task on Gait Velocity (GV) and Cadence (C) in Cerebral Palsied Children with Spastic Hemiparesis or Diparesis (CPCSHD). Read More

Efficacy and safety of alemtuzumab treatment in a real-world cohort of patients with multiple sclerosis.

Acta Neurol Belg 2020 May 23. Epub 2020 May 23.

Multiple Sclerosis Center, Sheba Medical Center, Ramat Gan, Israel.

Alemtuzumab is a monoclonal anti-CD52 antibody prescribed to treat relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS). Alemtuzumab affects the balance of the immune system by depleting circulating lymphocytes, leading to the formation of a new immune repertoire less likely to induce autoimmune attack against CNS myelin. We collected real-world data of RRMS patients treated with alemtuzumab. Read More
