OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS The aim of this study was to characterize the clinical features and typical positional nystagmus in patients with persistent geotropic direction-changing positional nystagmus (DCPN) and address the possible pathophysiology of the disease. Furthermore, the proportion of light cupula among the patients showing geotropic DCPN was(More)
  Cerebellar Purkinje cells (PCs) are the sole output of the cerebellar cortex and function as key to a variety of learning-related behaviours by integrating multimodal afferent inputs. Intrinsic membrane excitability of neurons determines the input-output relationship, and therefore governs the functions of neural circuits. Cerebellar vermis consists of(More)
MOTIVATION MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-coding RNAs that cause mRNA degradation and translational inhibition. They are important regulators of development and cellular homeostasis through their control of diverse processes. Recently, great efforts have been made to elucidate their regulatory mechanism, but the functions of most miRNAs and their precise(More)
CONCLUSION Vestibular abnormality was found in 84% of patients with Meniere's disease (MD) and 66% of those with migrainous vertigo (MV), even in the interictal period. Although MV does not have proven pathology like endolymphatic hydrops of MD, MV had high vestibular abnormality, suggesting that comorbid vestibular abnormality can be a cause of vertigo and(More)
CONCLUSION The up-regulation of osmotic stress protein 94 (OSP94) in the murine endolymphatic hydrops (EH) models suggests that OSP94 might be involved in cellular adaptation in response to ionic and osmotic stress in the murine inner ear. OBJECTIVES The purpose of the present study was to investigate the expression of OSP94 in cochlear tissues of the(More)
UNLABELLED We performed this study to assess the influence of endotracheal tube (ETT) tip design (Murphy-tip versus Magill-tip) on nasal trauma during nasotracheal intubation with a conventional polyvinyl chloride ETT. Patients were randomly allocated to one of four groups (n = 25 each): Magill-tipped ETT and Murphy-tipped ETT with or without(More)
OBJECTIVES To characterize the clinical features of patients who simultaneously developed ipsilateral sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL) and positional vertigo showing geotropic direction-changing positional nystagmus (DCPN) on a supine head-roll test, and to address the possible pathophysiology of the disease. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective case(More)
We evaluated the short-term efficacy of Epley, Semont, and sham maneuvers for resolving posterior canal benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) in a prospective multicenter randomized double-blind controlled study. Subjects were randomly divided into three groups: Epley (36 patients), Semont (32 patients), and sham (Epley maneuver for the unaffected(More)
Accurate lateralization is important to improve treatment outcomes in horizontal semicircular canal (HSCC) benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). To determine the involved side in HSCC-BPPV, the intensity of nystagmus has been compared in a head-roll test (HRT) and the direction of nystagmus was evaluated in a bow and lean test (BLT). The aim of this(More)
Although biphasic head-shaking nystagmus (HSN) is a basic response to head shaking in patients with unilateral vestibular loss, monophasic HSN is commonly seen in patients with dizziness of undetermined etiology. Since the clinical significance of HSN remains unclear, we sought to characterize different types of HSN in patients with vestibular neuritis (VN)(More)
