Triple and quadruple cervical artery dissections: a systematic review of individual patient data

Background and purposeSimultaneous dissection of three or four cervical arteries rarely occurs. As a result, limited information is available on clinical characteristics, underlying causes, treatment, and outcome of these patients.MethodsWe performed a systematic review of individual patient data on triple and quadruple cervical artery dissection (CeAD). We included all cases for...

Massive obesity and hyperphagia in posterior bilateral periventricular heterotopias: case report

Background Bilateral posterior periventricular nodular heterotopia PNH is a complex malformation of cortical development with imaging features distinguishing it from classic bilateral PNH associated with filamin (FLNA) mutations. It distinctively consists of variably sized nodules of neurons along the trigones and temporal or occipital horns of the lateral ventricles and spectrum...

Relationship between Regional Fat Distribution and Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Phenotype

Background Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), the most common genetic heart disease, is characterized by heterogeneous phenotypic expression. Body mass index has been associated with LV mass and heart failure symptoms in HCM. The aim of our study was to investigate whether regional (trunk, appendicular, epicardial) fat distribution and extent could be related to hypertrophy...

Autophagy, Inflammation and Innate Immunity in Inflammatory Myopathies

Autophagy has a large range of physiological functions and its dysregulation contributes to several human disorders, including autoinflammatory/autoimmune diseases such as inflammatory myopathies (IIMs). In order to better understand the pathogenetic mechanisms of these muscular disorders, we sought to define the role of autophagic processes and their relation with the innate...

Age-Related Different Relationships between Ectopic Adipose Tissues and Measures of Central Obesity in Sedentary Subjects

Accumulation of fat at ectopic sites has been gaining attention as pivotal contributor of insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome and related cardiovascular complications. Intermuscular adipose tissue (IMAT), located between skeletal muscle bundles and beneath muscle fascia, has been linked to physical inactivity, ageing and body mass index, but little is known about its...
