Recently, Hoke et al. (1989) and Pantev et al. (1989) demonstrated that the auditory evoked cortical magnetic field (AECMF) M100 component was larger, and M200 was smaller and occurred later in subjects with unilateral tinnitus compared with normal subjects. These group amplitude differences resulted in an M200/M100 amplitude ratio that was smaller for the(More)
BACKGROUND The use of continuous electromyographic and somatosensory-evoked-potential monitoring systems has been advocated to assist in avoiding nerve-root injury during operations on the pelvic ring. More recently, it was suggested that stimulus-evoked electromyographic monitoring may further decrease the risk of iatrogenic nerve-root injury during(More)
The present investigation was conducted in an attempt to determine whether selective auditory attention abilities differed between normal subjects and subjects with bothersome tinnitus. Subjects were 37 adults with tinnitus and high-frequency hearing loss (not affecting thresholds at 500 and 1000 Hz) and 15 subjects who were audiometrically and otologically(More)
OBJECTIVE A canine model was designed to evaluate the feasibility of stimulus-evoked electromyographic (EMG) monitoring of the lumbosacral nerve roots during the insertion of iliosacral implants. STUDY DESIGN/METHODS Four 2.5-millimeter Kirschner wires (K-wires) were percutaneously inserted under general anesthesia into the S1 body of each of five dog(More)
OBJECTIVES We hypothesized that the hyperexcitability of occipital cortex neurons may predispose migraine subjects to develop spreading depression, the putative basis of migraine with aura (MwA). To date there is no direct physiologic correlate confirming this in patients. Accordingly, we evaluated the differences in the threshold of occipital cortex(More)
Magnetoencephalographic (MEG) applications in auditory evoked field (AEF) recordings have demonstrated that both tonotopicity and amplitopicity exist in the auditory cortex. The present study was conducted to determine whether previously reported characteristics of the AEF could be identified in multichannel cortical auditory evoked potential N1e (e.g., the(More)
We have devised a method of sensory nerve conduction in the interdigital nerves of the foot using the near-nerve needle and signal averaging techniques. In 40 normal controls between the ages of 20 and 59, there was no difficulty in recording sensory compound nerve action potential (CNAP) in the various interdigital nerves. The amplitude of sensory CNAP(More)
A great deal of information about the characteristics of components N1m and P2m of the auditory evoked cortical fields (AEFs) has accumulated since the late 1970s. However, a number of fundamental issues have not been addressed. For instance, some previous investigators have suggested that P2m is present consistently in normals, whereas others suggest that(More)
BACKGROUND Following radical prostatectomy, success of adjuvant and salvage radiation therapy (RT) is dependent on the absence of micrometastatic disease. However, reliable prognostic/predictive factors for determining this are lacking. Therefore, novel biomarkers are needed to assist with clinical decision-making in this setting. Enumeration of circulating(More)
Ruptured cerebral aneurysm is the most common cause of spontaneous subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Rarely cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) may present initially as acute SAH, and clinically mimics aneurysmal bleed. We report 2 cases of CVST who presented with severe headache associated with neck pain and focal seizures. Non-contrast brain CT showed(More)
