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)
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 0.2 s−1 and total amplitudes of 20°, 40°, 60°, or 80° were employed. The average eye deviations(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°. 1) With all(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 0.2 s−1; 20, 40, and 60°) and were compared with healthy subjects. Consideration was given to saccadic activity and slow phase velocity of nystagmus and overall gaze shift.(More)
Horizontal vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) with covered eyes was tested in 15 healthy subjects sitting on a rotation chair (40 degrees, 0.05, 0.1, 0.2, 0.33 Hz) under two conditions: (a) head fixed to chair by a neck support; (b) with instruction to turn the head together with the passively moved trunk. In situation (b), saccadic amplitudes/sec, nystagmus(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)
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)
Space occupying lesions involving the optic nerve require individual management. Graves' disease is first treated with cortisone: failures of treatment require radiation and operative decompression. Good results have been achieved with cytostatic drugs and, in acute progressive loss of vision, with plasmapheresis. Idiopathic pseudo-tumor orbitae disappears(More)
