We studied the origin and mechanism of spinal cord pulsation in ten dogs in order to elucidate its clinical significance. Under general anesthesia, a 6 cm length of the animals' cervical spinal cord was exposed and the cerebrospinal fluid removed. The amplitude of spinal pulsation was then measured by means of ultrasonography in Mode M. The measurements(More)
Short latency somatosensory evoked potentials to median or ulnar nerve stimulation were recorded in a patient with syringomyelia. Scalp-recorded far-field P14 was clearly preserved, but spinal N13-P13 components disappeared. Our findings support the hypothesis that spinal N13-P13 is generated by structures intrinsic to the cervical cord, most likely in the(More)
If segmental nerve defects could be repaired by elongating the proximal or distal segments, nerve grafting might be unnecessary. We elongated a 40-mm proximal segment of an injured median nerve, in the rabbit right forelimb, at a rate of 1 mm/day for 10 days in 10 rabbits and for 15 days in another 10. On the left forelimb of the same rabbits, a 10- for(More)
We examined the differences on intraoperative ultrasonography between 17 cases of meningioma and 29 of neurilemmoma, the common intradural extramedullary tumors. In meningiomas, cysts were rarely seen (in 12.5%, P < 0.01%) and echogenicity was high (in 82.3%, P < 0.01%). In neurilemmoma, many cysts were seen (72.5%) and low echoes tended to be more common(More)
