A group of 121 patients, 22 with a preterminal chronic renal insufficiency (PCRI), 74 on chronic haemodialysis (CHD), and 25 on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD), was evaluated by means of neurophysiological and neuropsychological studies to detect signs of central nervous system dysfunction. CHD patients were studied the day before dialysis(More)
Involvement of peripheral nerves and skeletal muscles has been reported in the course of hereditary haemochromatosis (HH) but a systematic study is lacking. However, patients with HH report symptoms suggesting a possible polyneuropathy or myopathy. In this study patients with DNA proven HH were recruited from a large general teaching hospital. First, all(More)
BACKGROUND The ankle brachial index (ABI) is a well-established tool for screening and diagnosis of peripheral arterial disease (PAD). In this study we assessed the validity of ABI determination using a pocket Doppler device compared with automatic vascular laboratory measurement in patients suspected of PAD. METHODS Consecutive patients with symptoms of(More)
Assessment of peripheral nerve function in end stage uremia by clinical and conventional nerve conduction velocity studies was compared to that using H reflex measurements. The latter proved to be the most sensitive technique. The results of the test correlated well with clinical and with other neuro-physiological measures. Nerve function as evaluated by H(More)
AIMS To investigate the occurrence of symptomatic peroneal neuropathy (PN) in cancer patients, as well as that of cancer in PN patients and to seek possible factors in the aetiology of PN. METHODS Clinical, neurographical, and myographical data of patients with PN, in two general neurology clinics during a 5-year period (1988-1992) were analysed(More)
BACKGROUND Provocative clinical tests are often performed in the diagnosis of ulnar neuropathy at the elbow (UNE) although the evidence for the usefulness of these tests is limited. The aim of this study was to determine the diagnostic value of provocative clinical tests in the diagnosis of UNE in a relevant spectrum of patients and controls. METHODS A(More)
The neurometric method as introduced by John was used to study three groups of patients with cerebral ischemia, three groups of patients with renal disease and an additional normal control group. The traditional neurometric approach was slightly modified: relative band power values were not expressed as a percentage of the total power per derivation but as(More)
