The combination of galvanic labyrinth polarization and transcranial Doppler ultrasound was employed to depict the neurovascular coupling in the cerebral vestibular areas. For galvanic stimulation, surface electrodes were attached to the right and left mastoid and two further electrodes were fixed near to each shoulder blade. Thus, each pair of electrodes(More)
Although intracranial hemorrhage has frequently been found responsible for mortality in adult patients with Alagille syndrome (AGS), no specific underlying cause has been identified. We describe the case of severe subarachnoid hemorrhage in a 30-year-old woman harboring five intracranial aneurysms and multiple peripheral vascular anomalies. To evaluate a(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the reliability of the gravitation-assisted adjustable proGAV shunt system with a prospective multicenter study conducted in 10 German hospitals. METHODS Enrollment for this observational study began in April 2005 and concluded in February 2006. The protocol required re-examinations 3 and 6 months postoperatively and fixed the(More)
BACKGROUND While strong vestibular input to the fastigial nucleus has been demonstrated, little is known on how this is integrated in the oculomotor region of the caudal area of fastigial nucleus. In this study, single units in the caudal region of the fastigial nucleus were recorded in the rat, while applying sinusoidal galvanic stimuli to the labyrinths.(More)
Severe head injury (SHI) leads to systemic immunosuppression, which is processed by central mechanisms and is associated with a high risk of pneumonia. The timely identification of an immunodepressed condition in SHI patients might help prevent infections by changing the intensive care strategy. The aim of this prospective study is to evaluate a new method(More)
Binocular eye movement responses to galvanic vestibular stimulation were measured in comatose patients. Healthy persons have been demonstrated to show a consistent and reproducible relationship between eye movement and galvanic vestibular stimulation. Any pathology of the vestibular integrating structures (brainstem and to some degree the cerebellum and(More)
OBJECTIVE Reservoirs integrated into hydrocephalus shunts are commonly used for the removal of CSF and for intra-ventricular pressure measurement. Pumping with the reservoir to diagnose shunt sufficiency is still a matter of controversy. The authors describe an improved flushing device and its characteristic features in vitro and in vivo.
