In normal subjects and in patients with spasticity and/or urological complaints changes in somatic muscle reflexes associated with filling of the urinary bladder were observed. Two different patterns of reflex changes occurred. One pattern was associated with easy initiation of voiding: it consisted of increasing H and T reflexes and decreasing flexor(More)
The time relation between flexor spasms, detrusor contractions and anal sphincter activity was recorded in a consecutive series of 111 patients with hyperreflexic bladder and flexor spasms. In 76 of the patients flexor spasms were preceded by detrusor contractions. The opposite pattern, namely detrusor contractions preceded by flexor spasms, was seen in(More)
By perianal electrical stimulation and EMG recording from the external anal sphincter the anal reflex was constantly present in normal subjects. The latency decreased within certain limits with increasing stimulation to an average minimum latency of 50 ms (SD 10.5). There was no difference between the minimum latency in normal subjects and patients with(More)
During a period of 2 1/2 years, 198 patients with definite MS were admitted to our neurological department. 88 were investigated neurourodynamically because of distinct voiding dysfunction. 73 patients showed detrusor hyperreflexia, 14 detrusor hyporeflexia or areflexia and one had normal findings. There was no obvious correlation between the occurrence of(More)
The present report describes the clinical, pathological, serological and virological findings in calves from 2 larger Danish beef herds experiencing outbreaks of pneumonia. The calves had been vaccinated with an inactivated bovine respiratory syncytial virus (BRSV) vaccine 2 months prior to the outbreak. The clinical signs comprised nasal discharge,(More)
The threshold and latency of the human flexor reflex were recorded by different kinds of electrical stimuli in order to find the optimal stimulus, defined as the lowest amount of currency and the shortest possible duration. Stimulation was given over the posterior tibial nerve of the foot. The reflex response was recorded from the tibialis anterior muscle(More)

The walking pattern in a group of nine adult male subjects who had received early intensive treatment for congenital clubfoot was evaluated and compared to the walking pattern in a control group of 15 adult healthy male subjects. All subjects were filmed with a five-camera video system as they walked across two force plates. A three-dimensional inverse(More)
Nine patients with multiple sclerosis, four with relapsing-remitting disease, and five with chronic progressive disease, together with eight healthy control, were followed for nearly a year with monthly clinical and laboratory examinations. Alpha- and gamma-interferon was induced in lymphocytes with different viruses and PHA, no differences were found(More)
A description is given of a new electronic device capable of analysing and converting the EMG response in a small volume of muscle in such a way that two output signals are obtained: one as an analogue voltage proportional to the instantaneous firing rate, the other as a number of impulses counted in a preselectable measurement-time window. The method thus(More)
