The purpose of this study was to determine whether the masking-level difference (MLD) obtained with the late (P2) auditory evoked potentials has characteristics similar to those reported for the behavioral MLD with respect to the effects of noise level. Psychoacoustic studies have shown that the magnitude of the MLD increases as a function of the noise(More)
The masking level difference (MLD) is a psychoacoustic phenomenon derived from the subtraction of S pi No thresholds (signals pi radians out of phase and noise in phase at the two ears) from SoNo thresholds (signals and noise in phase at the two ears). The purpose of this study was to determine if the MLD derived from the late components (P1, N1, P2, N2) of(More)
OBJECT The purpose of this study was to determine whether the preoperative measurement of acetazolamide-induced changes in cerebral blood flow (CBF), which is performed using single-photon emission computerized tomography (SPECT) scanning, can be used to identify patients at risk for hyperperfusion following carotid endarterectomy (CEA). In addition, the(More)
This study investigated the possibility of a correlate of the masking level difference (MLD) in the auditory brainstem response (ABR), given that behavioral data indicate the brainstem origination of the MLD. Previous studies have reported MLD characteristics in the late auditory evoked potentials. In the present study, stimuli were presented in S(o)N(o)(More)
A masking level difference (MLD) paradigm was used to investigate the presence of an electrophysiologic correlate of the psychoacoustic MLD in the middle and late auditory evoked potentials. In experiment 1, middle latency potentials were recorded in six normal-hearing young adults using vertex and temporal electrode montages. Tone bursts of 500 Hz(More)
OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE Cerebral hyperperfusion syndrome is a rare but potentially devastating complication that typically occurs within several days after carotid endarterectomy. CLINICAL PRESENTATION A 66-year-old man experienced asymptomatic cerebral hyperperfusion as demonstrated by single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) during a 2-week(More)
High-frequency hearing losses can substantially confound the interpretation of click-evoked auditory brainstem responses (ABRs). One method proposed to circumvent the problem is to use frequency-specific tone pips to stimulate equivalent areas on the basilar membrane in normal and pathologic groups, or in both ears of asymmetrically impaired patients. This(More)
A 48-year-old male presented with a rare subclavian artery aneurysm associated with absence of the ipsilateral internal carotid artery. The aneurysm was resected and replaced with a Gore Tex artificial graft. Computed tomography, angiography and cerebral blood flow findings suggest that defect of the right internal carotid artery occurred in the(More)
BACKGROUND Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of a patient with atherosclerotic internal carotid artery (ICA) occlusion demonstrated medullary streaks in the deep white matter, which were previously observed only in moyamoya disease and may indicate decreased cerebral blood flow. Cerebral perfusion and metabolism were evaluated using positron emission(More)
