BACKGROUND Multiple sclerosis (MS) is mostly diagnosed clinically, but the diagnosis has significantly improved through the use of brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), testing of cerebrospinal fluid, and multimodal evoked potentials (MEPs). Even though MRI is the superior method in diagnosing this illness, MEPs remain important because they can detect(More)
For a final diagnosis of brain death one needs particular proof that the brain has fully stopped functioning. In this respect, diagnostic tests need to be used to confirm the clinical findings. Since in different countries there are various national guidelines for the determination of brain death, the aim of this study is to point to the diagnostic value of(More)
Auditory evoked potentials (AEP) represent an electrophysiological method used in the diagnostics of pathological changes of the brainstem. Patients with vertebrobasilar insufficiency (VBI) show changes in the AEP-caused ischemia of the brain structures that generate their responses. The aim of the study was to determine the diagnostic significance and(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Idiopathic Parkinson's disease (PD) is a chronic, progressive, neurodegenerative disorder with prevalence from 60 to 187 per 100 000 persons in general population. The aim of the study was to determine the abnormalities of the blink reflex (BR) and the masseter inhibitory reflex (MIR) in parkinsonian patients, as indices of the functional(More)
<i><b>Introduction: </b> The aim of the paper was to analyze the changes in the macular ganglion cell layer and inner plexiform layer (GCL-IPL) thickness in patients with Parkinson's disease. <b>Material and methods</b>: The study enrolled 46 patients with established diagnosis of Parkinson's disease and 46 healthy subjects. Both groups were age- and(More)
For several decades the medical science society has been in dilemma and debating about when a person is actually considered dead. That a person is dead when his/her brain dies is the attitude of not only medical science, but culture as a whole 1, . The notion that took years to establish of heart being not only the “primum movens” but also the “ultimum(More)
There are many opened questions about the precocious role of oxidative stress in the physiopathology of the early stage of transitory ischemic attack (TIA) and defined focal brain ischemia, as well as about its correlation with clinical severity, short-lasting and clinical outcome prediction in these conditions. The study evaluates the values of glutathione(More)
Cognitive status of patients with Parkinson's disease is characterized by disorders of attention, short-term memory, constructive abilities, as well as by visuospatial disorders. The aim of our study was to establish the level of correlation between applied neurophysiological and neuropsychological tests in early diagnosis of initial cognitive disturbances(More)
