STUDY DESIGN This study investigated the clinical usefulness of motor evoked potentials and a silent period after motor evoked potentials produced by transcranial magnetic stimulation of the brain. OBJECTIVE The results were correlated with the clinical state of the patients with myelopathy, whereas no abnormality of the conduction time was observed in(More)
We investigated the effects of remote muscle contraction on the amplitude and latency of motor-evoked potentials (MEPs) recorded from tibialis anterior and lateral gastrocnemius after transcranial magnetic stimulation of the motor cortex. In particular, consideration was given to the effects of unilateral handgrip of different strengths, jaw clench, and(More)
Occasionally, the outcome from laminoplasty for cervical spondylosis is disappointing despite an adequate operation. Before surgery, it is difficult to diagnose the pathological extent of the involvement of the spinal cord. The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and of the motor evoked potentials (MEPs)(More)
OBJECTIVE Oxaliplatin, a key part of the standard regimen for colorectal cancer in Western countries, has become available in Japan. In a hemodialysis patient with cecal cancer, we investigated the efficacy, safety, pharmacokinetics, and dialysability of oxaliplatin. METHODS A 65-year-old man who had cecal cancer was treated with oxaliplatin (40 mg/m(2))(More)
The efficacy of motor evoked potentials (MEPs) induced by magnetic brain stimulation was investigated experimentally for assessing acute spinal cord injury. Twenty-five rabbits were employed for the acute spinal cord injury model. Following laminectomy under intravenous and intraperitoneal anesthesia, the spinal cord at the level of the fifth lumbar(More)
