Retrograde changes of nerve fibers with the carpal tunnel syndrome
Measurement of the evoked nerve action potential in the proximal nerve segment enables us to estimate the extent of the retrograde nerve fiber degeneration and therefore might be important for prognosis. Expand
An open and double-blind cross-over study on the efficacy of clomipramine (Anafranil) in patients with painful mono- and polyneuropathies.
It can be concluded that clomipramine probably has-in addition to the action on peripheral receptors-a direct effect upon pain modulation systems, and probably activates serotonin-containing neurons of the endorphin-mediated analgesia system that control pain transmission in the CNS. Expand
Somatosensory evoked potentials following stimulation of the trigeminal nerve in man
From the first three peaks analyzed, the first positive peak (P 19) is most prominent and reliable and therefore is recommended for the routine measurements of neurophysiological examination. Expand
Somatosensory evoked potentials following trigeminal nerve stimulation in trigeminal neuralgia
A pathological increase in latency of the first positive component on the involved siEN in 7 (41%) of the 17 patients without anteceENnt surgical treatment is indicative of microtraumatization of the trigeminal nerve in the posterior fossa by blood vessels, for example, leading to local ENmyelinization.

Transmission of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease via a corneal transplant
It is presumed that the cadaveric cornea was the source of transmission of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease in this patient. Expand
Elimination kinetics of phenazone and its hepatic hydroxylation was studied in two groups of alcoholics and compared with corresponding data from three control groups without a history of heavyExpand
[Teratogenicity of anticonvulsant drugs (author's transl)].
Investigations were done on 111 children of epileptic mothers who used anticonvulsants in 93 pregnancies and none in 18 pregnancies, finding malformation and cerebral damage without dysmorphia was found significantly more frequently in children of mothers on anticonVulsant drugs with convulsions during pregnancy.

Vitamin B 1, B 2 and B 6 deficiency in neurological disorders
SummaryThe activities of the red blood cell enzymes transketolase, glutathione reductase, and glutamic oxaloacetate transaminase were measured with and without in vitro addition of their respectiveExpand
