The secured significance of position and extent of a cerebral tumour as well as its biological dignity with respect to the kind and frequency of the neuro-ophthalmological findings was the starting point of these investigations. In this retrospective study the findings of visual acuity, visual field and papillae of 204 patients operated on the cerebrum were(More)
On the basis of 346 glioma patients operated on in the years 1969-1983, the frequency of epileptic seizures and their importance for the diagnosis as well as the causes of the delay in clearing up the clinical picture were ascertained. Of the 226 patients with an astrocytoma, 51.5 per cent had one or several epileptic fits in the pre-operative period. For(More)
The ophthalmological findings obtained in 254 patients with space occupying processes of the lateral and third ventricles are analysed. Visual disturbances (78%), defects of the visual field (69%), findings of the fundus of the eye (67%) and motility restrictions (24%) were identified. Only in eight per cent the findings of the eye-ground no particular(More)
Departing from the well-known influences exerted on the picture of the cerebral potential by an intracranial space-occupying process, the persisting pathological EEG findings with proved absence of recidivity have been determined in this study. These investigations were based on the postoperative EEG leads of 204 patients with cerebral operations with a(More)
Among the patients of the Hospital for Neurosurgery in Leipzig treated in the period from 1952 to 1986 66 per cent of 570 patients operated on because of spinal cord tumours showed a benign and 34 per cent a malignant nature of the tumours. The rate of primary bone tumours amounted to 6.5 per cent and that of secondary bone tumours was 5.8 per cent. The(More)
Ascribing the origin of neurological and neuropsychological syndromes to certain cerebral areas is a well-known knowledge that has also been introduced in clinical practice. In spite of general acknowledgement of a multifactorial manner of the development of these psychic phenomena there are, however, with regard to the effects of the location and the size(More)
Among 210 patients operated on because of processes of the ventricles I to III in the years 1953 to 1983 a continuous outpatient after-treatment was carried out in 64 patients. Departing from the histological findings and differentiation according to the results obtained after tumour extirpation or palliative interventions, the subjective complaints, the(More)
The aim of the surgeon to achieve complete health and well-being with full professional fitness cannot be reached in many cases or only partially. Since the postoperative psychophysical capacity of compensation and maximum stress is expressed in the form of the psychosocial integration in the professional and family life, we have tried to explain on the(More)
On the basis of 90 catamnestically pursued disease courses of surgically treated sphenoid bone wing meningioma of the years 1970 to 1987 the validity of the clinical-neuropsychiatric and neuro-ophthalmological examinations as well as the information value of the native X-ray pictures were ascertained. The aim of the work was to point out the possibility and(More)
In this article, the experience gained in the postoperative treatment and care after ventral vertebral fusion (operation after Cloward) are presented. After a radicular or medullary decompression has been achieved by the surgical intervention, an individually adapted, symptom-centered physiotherapeutic exercise programme, a continuous observation of the(More)
