In most cases of shunted hydrocephalus, shunt malfunction is evaluated by clinical examination and neuro-imaging. However if there is a discrepancy between neurological examination and imaging, additional shuntography can be helpful in the evaluation of the shunt function. In our clinic, radionuclide-imaging shuntography using (99m)technetium-pertechnetate(More)
The present study examined the effect of chronic intrastriatal infusion of the dopamine receptor agonist lisuride on apomorphine-induced rotational behaviour and on D2-dopamine receptors in rats with unilateral 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) lesions of the nigrostriatal dopaminergic pathway. The completeness of the lesion of the right ascending nigrostriatal(More)
Direct infusion of dopamine into the corpus striatum has been proposed as a potential approach for the treatment of Parkinson's disease. The present study examined the effect of intrastriatal dopamine infusion on D2-dopamine receptors in the 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) lesioned rat brain. The completeness of the 6-OHDA-induced nigrostriatal injury was(More)
