CONCLUSION: The prevalence of oropharyngeal dysphagia is high after a stroke.

[Spasticity in neurological pathologies. An update on the pathophysiological mechanisms, advances in diagnosis and treatment].
CONCLUSION: Spasticity is related to structural lesions and maladaptive neuroplastic changes that determine an important variability in its clinical expression. Although its diagnosis presents important limitations, the use of clinical and neurophysiological diagnostic tools aimed at achieving different approaches in cases of neurological pathologies originating in the brain and in the spinal cord could optimise the effectiveness of spasticity therapies.

[Migratory hyperdense posterior cerebral artery sign following intravenous thrombolysis].
CONCLUSIONS: Evidence of posterior cerebral artery hyperdensity is a rare radiological finding associated with an increased volume of ischaemic stroke. A computed tomography scan of the head in the acute phase is essential to try to clarify its causation. Calcium emboli are an under-diagnosed cause of stroke and occur spontaneously in a large proportion of cases. If calcium embolism is suspected, a study must be conducted in search of a carotid, valvular or aortic arch pathology. Migration of the arterial hyperdensity towards distal is associated with a better prognosis. This case presented good progress in contrast to the...

nde A Abstract The emperor of Rome, Marco Ulpio Trajano, ruled the Roman Empire from 98 to 117 AD, being the first emperor of non-Italian origin and the man who took the Empire to its maximum geographical extent. Trajan's death is surrounded by mystery, given Adriano's controversial adoption as his successor just before his death, as well as rumors of poisoning by his wife, Plotina. In addition, despite the limited literary sources available, episodes of «paralysis», «stroke», «dropsy», diarrhea and nonspecific episodes of «illness» have been documented, related to t...

[Historical perspective of the studies with the greatest impact on the treatment of gliomas].
Abstract Historically, advances in our knowledge of neuro-oncology and improvements in the survival of patients with brain tumours have been relatively scarce. One of the main turning points can be established from 2005 onwards, when the potential therapeutic role of cytostatics in these tumours was confirmed, thus changing the standard of treatment. Up until that date, only radiation therapy and surgery were considered truly effective treatments. This shift has contributed to the development of new systemic therapies and to an in-depth study of gliomagenesis. Advances in the knowledge of the basic fields of brain...

CONCLUSIONS: The literature describes abnormalities in cranial magnetic resonance imaging in 10-20% of diagnosed cases of PS in which a scan is performed, although the diagnosis of PS is not always changed (matching lesions). Both cases exemplify the importance of reaching a correct diagnosis through a detailed study that must include neuroimaging, since, in some patients, causal brain injuries will be detected and as a result the diagnosis, treatment and evolution will be significantly different.

[Epidemiology of essential tremor].
CONCLUSIONS: Data on the epidemiology of essential tremor are still limited. Estimates of the prevalence of essential tremor vary widely across countries, which makes it difficult to accurately establish its prevalence. Even so, its prevalence increases with age; that is, it is a disease linked to aging. In subjects older than 60 years, essential tremor prevalence would be between 2.3-14.3% (median: 6.3%). However, further studies are needed in this regard, mainly studies of incidence and mortality. In recent years, advances have been made in the knowledge of some environmental factors, such as risk factors, especially the...
