In a retrospective study, we compared school performance of 53 children practicing music (group 1) with 67 controls not practicing music (group 2). Overall average marks as well as average marks of all school subjects except sports were significantly higher in children who do (group 1) than in those who do not practice music (group 2).

BACKGROUND Several case series and a recent meta-analysis indicate that intra-arterial thrombolysis (IAT) is effective for the treatment of acute central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO). METHODS A total of 37 patients with acute monocular blindness because of unilateral thromboembolic CRAO were treated with IAT using urokinase within six hours of the(More)
Vertical diplopia from skew deviation is well described in brainstem lesions. The phenomenon can also result from peripheral vestibular lesions. During the past years, we have observed these ocular changes in the acute stage following unilateral vestibular neurectomy and labyrinthectomy (n = 13), as well as in series of patients suffering from idiopathic(More)
Mesenchymal cells of the rodent breast express both estrogen and progesterone receptors. Searches for these molecules in the human breast have yielded conflicting results. Following immunohistochemical staining of samples of normal human breast tissue, the authors detected estrogen receptor alpha protein and progesterone receptor protein in extralobular(More)
Data from 80 high-risk low birth infants were analysed to determine whether there is a clinical association between Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP) and Peri-Intraventricular Hemorrhages (PIVH) in preterm newborns. Diagnosis of retinopathy was made by retinal examination at approximately four weeks of age. All infants were routinely and repeatedly scanned(More)
Ciliary and iris block glaucoma in aphakic and phakic eyes is characterized by the accumulation of aqueous humor in the vitreous cavity causing an increase in vitreous volume, a flattening of the anterior chamber, and an elevation of intraocular pressure. As vitreous blocks the space between the ciliary body and the iris or lens, respectively, an anterior(More)
BACKGROUND Visual acuity serves as only a rough gauge of macular function. The aim therefore was to ascertain whether central an assessment of the central visual field afforded a closer insight into visual function after removal of epiretinal membranes and Infracyanine-Green- or Trypan-Blue-assisted peeling of the inner limiting membrane.
