By polygraphic methods the authors studied the sleep patterns during treatment of patients with subtentorial tumours causing hydrocephalus. Sleep recording was carried out in three stages of treatment: 1) before insertion of ventriculo-atrial valve, (7 investigations), 2) on the 7th day after valve insertion (7 investigations), 3) two months after removal(More)
In 6 patients treated for hydrocephalus caused by posterior fossa tumours simultaneous continuous measurement of intraventricular cerebrospinal fluid pressure and all-night polygraphic sleep recording were carried out before and after implantation of ventriculoatrial valve. It was observed that in patients with hydrocephalus and raised CSF pressure(More)
The purpose of this study was to establish rheoencephalographic value in 90 healthy subjects aged from 20 to 80 years divided into 3 groups. The investigations were done with a two-channel rheographic apparatus produced by Siemens. The so-called rheography II technique was applied. In each subject measurements were done bilaterally in temporal, parietal and(More)
Thirty-seven patients with vertebrobasilar arterial insufficiency were divided into two groups depending on their clinical condition. In the group of patients with more severe clinical manifestations the intensity of EEG changes was correspondingly greater. In this group in 7 patients the EEG background activity was disturbed, in 4 of them focal changes(More)
The purpose of the study was to establish the influence exerted by a supratentorial brain tumour on the EEG correlates of sleep, and to compare the results before and after operation. Five patients were studied (aged 38 to 59 years) who were treated surgically for supratentorial expanding lesions: two cases of meningioma (in left parietal area), two cases(More)
Three goups, each composed of five individuals were investigated: students, patients and controls aged 20--45 years. The characteristic features of the first sleep in the laboratory were compared with the sleep during experimental pre-examination stress in students and preoperative stress in patients. It was found that the first sleep in the laboratory had(More)
Earlier investigations of Baekeland et al. (1968) showed that stress conditions change the characteristic features of sleep. It was the aim of this work to compare the effect of pre-examination stress and preoperative stress on the characteristic features of sleep. Three groups of 5 individuals each were studied: students, patients and controls aged from 20(More)
In 4 patients operated upon for supratentorial brain tumors the authors carried out on the 3rd day after the operation polygraphic recording of nocturnal sleep with simultaneous measurements of cerebrospinal fluid pressure in the ventricular system by the method of Lundberg. A comparison of polygraphic records of nocturnal sleep with parallel measurements(More)
In the light of CSFP measurements by Lundberg's method in 46 patients the authors showed the role of hyperventilation in lowering of intracranial pressure. A considerable efficacy of dexamethasone was demonstrated as well, the use of this drug permitted to achieve stabilization of CSFP during and after the operation. The investigations showed a considerable(More)
