Criteria of the diagnosis and treatment of carotid atheromatosis

, : Criteria of the diagnosis and treatment of carotid atheromatosis. Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences. le Journal Canadien des Sciences Neurologiques 6(2): 133-137

This retrospective study concerning 102 patients was undertaken to study the therapeutic decisions in these patients when they presented with symptoms of cerebral vascular insufficiency, mostly from the territory of the carotid artery, either transient or accompanied by a deficit. The current literature on the subject is also mentioned. The clinical outcome with regard to the quality of life, seems to have been better in patients who were subjected to carotid endarterectomies than in those who received medical treatment.

The IAA production of Alcaligenes faecalis wild type strain A1501 depended on addition of L-tryptopham(trp). A1501 could grow well in minimal medium without Trp, but could not produce IAA. The results indicated that there was Trp-dependent IAA bio...
