INTRODUCTION: Cranio-cervical arterial dissections are a recognized cause of ischemic stroke in childhood, with an approximate incidence of 0.4 to 20%. AIM. To describe a population of children with cranio-cervical arterial dissections, analyzing clinical presentation, risk factors, angiographic findings, evolution and treatment. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A descriptive, retrospective, longitudinal collaborative review (Sant Joan de Deu and Pereira Rossell Children's Hospital), of children one month to 17 years old of age was conducted, during the period of time between 2000 to 2009...

12 patients with stage II arterial hypertantion have been administered a complex therapy including antihypertensive, hypocholesterolemic (statines), and antiagregant (aspirin, acelisin) agents as a preventive maintenance of vascular complications (stroke, myocardial infarction). Optimization of individual treatment was established by controlling parameters of the integrated indicator of the coagulation cascade of whole blood. This indicator is called the coagulation module (CM). In a clinical practice this biomarker favours qualitative assessment of disorders of the coagulation potential and degree of its dysfunction...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVE: We present two families with atrial fibrillation in 20 of 50 members, during three generations, with known cardiac rhythms, in order to communicate their infrequent existence and the most relevant clinical facts. METHOD: Clinical situation, evolution, ECG and ECHO findings, treatments and complications related with the disease are investigated. RESULTS: The presence of atrial fibrillation in 20 members is demonstrated, although one of them was on sinus rhythm at the time of the study; 3 patients had left ventricular enlargement on the ECHO study; the clinical situation was good in all patients except two who died because of complications related to the arrythmia and a third patient that had a brain stroke...

BACKGROUND: Strokes due to vertebral artery lesions are not yet well known in children. CASE REPORT: We report on a case of post-traumatic vertebral artery dissection responsible for ischemic stroke in a 8-year old boy. Headache, vomiting and a brief loss of consciousness were the main initial signs. Neurological examination showed a locked-in syndrome. Cerebral imaging revealed lesions in cortical cerebellar hemisphere, cerebral pedoncular and protuberance. An arteriogram performed on day 10 showed left vertebral artery occlusion at C2 levels consistent with vertebral dissection...
