BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE In advanced stages of Parkinson's disease (PD) beside resting tremor, rigidity, and bradykinesia, most patients reveal severe balance instability. The goal of this study is to determine objectively postural control changes using static posturography after neurosurgical treatment (unilateral posteroventrolateral pallidotomy). (More)
Non-traumatic rhinorrhoea of CSF occurs much less frequently than traumatic ones. The most frequent causes of this rhinorrhoea are congenital abnormalities of the cranial bass. Non-traumatic rhinorrhoea with normal cerebrospinal fluid pressure and those with raised CSF pressure are known. In the latter rhinorrhoea is one of the signs of a disease causing(More)
Haemangioblastoma (HBs) may occur sporadically in the central nervous system, or in association with von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease. Haemangioblastoma of the central nervous system is often seen in the posterior cranial fossa. VHL is an autosomaly dominant disorder. In sporadic HBs tumours, VHL alleles are reported to be inactive in up to 50% of tumours.(More)
The aviator's antigravity suit (G-suit) was used for 40 operations on neurosurgical patients operated on in sitting position. The G-suit was filled with air to 0.2 atmosphere (20 kPa) pressure in 26 cases, and 0.3 atm. (30 kPa) in 14 cases. In all cases G-suit filling was followed by central venous pressure rise and mean arterial pressure rise. Venous air(More)
Reduced blood cholesterol levels were reported in patients with a variety of malignant peripheral tumors. This fact is likely related to increased cholesterol demand by proliferating tumor cells. The question arises whether this ‘tumor-associated hypocholesterolemia’ occurs also in patients with brain tumors, and – if it does not – whether its absence can(More)
A group of 73 patients is described in whom diagnostic procedures failed to demonstrate the source of haemorrhage. In this group 92% of patients were in good clinical condition after the episode (I and II clinical group). In only one patient with angiographically demonstrated diffuse vasospasm in one cerebral hemisphere signs of focal brain damage developed(More)
In the years 1985-1987 CT studies were carried out in 182 patients after haemorrhage from ruptured intracranial aneurysm. The study was carried out before surgery or the patients were not operated on for various reasons. Hydrocephalus was found in 33 cases, that is 18.2%. The patients were divided into subgroups depending on the time of CT after haemorrhage(More)
