In normal adults the vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) and the cervico-ocular reflex (COR) were investigated during passive and active head or body movements, respectively. Sinusoidal rotations around the vertical axis of the body at frequencies of 0.05, 0.1, and 0.2s-1 and total amplitudes of 20 degrees, 40 degrees, 60 degrees, or 80 degrees were employed. The(More)
In 8 patients with manifest Huntington's Chorea vestibulo-ocular (VOR) and cervico-ocular (COR) reflexes were compared with eye movements during active head turnings. Seated patients were stimulated with their eyes closed by sinusoidal swings around the vertical axis at frequencies of 0.05, 0.1 and 0.2s-1 with amplitudes of 20, 40 and 60 degrees. 1) With(More)
Eye movements in five patients with chronic bilateral labyrinthine loss were tested with sinusoidal movements during cervico-ocular stimulation and active head movements (0.05, 0.1 and 0.2s-1; 20, 40, and 60 degrees) and were compared with healthy subjects. Consideration was given to saccadic activity and slow phase velocity of nystagmus and overall gaze(More)
Parent's choices among therapeutic options for their infants born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome are difficult and controversial. Currently, management options include surgical reconstruction, cardiac transplantation, and comfort measures only. We retrospectively reviewed medical records of 47 patients (1989-1999) to create a database of clinical(More)
In 15 sitting volunteers with eyes covered the vestibulo- and cervico-ocular reflexes were tested with sinusoidal movements around the vertical axis of the body, at frequencies of 0.05, 0.1 and 0.2 s-1 and a total amplitude of 40 degrees. When the trunk was moved against the fixed head, the subjects described mainly an illusionary head movement at 0.05 s-1,(More)
Carbamazepine continues to be the most useful drug in the treatment of trigeminal neuralgia. Diphenylhydantoin may be given in addition to or instead of Carbamazepine. Refractory cases may benefit from combination with Baclofen or Chlorphenesin. In cases of persistent pain the concomitant use of tricyclic antidepressant drugs is recommended. If pain(More)
This review is based on the clinical experience with 7 patients and a total of 171 additional cases described in literature. Clinical features are presented of this "benign" cerebellar encephalopathy, which occurs preferably in association with viral infections, neuroblastomas or rarely carcinomas. Numerous descriptions of single cases stress a(More)
