The reversal phase of caloric nystagmus is provoked when the lateral semicircular canal in a patient is reoriented from a vertical to a horizontal plane at the cessation of the caloric first phase, which we called the provoked caloric second phase. In investigating the clinical significance of the provoked caloric second phase, we recruited 102 vertiginous(More)
CONCLUSIONS Up-beating vertical component recorded in the caloric first phase was attributed mainly to the inhibitory endolymph flow in the anterior canal. Down-beating vertical component recorded in the caloric second phase provoked by a positional change could be explained by a reversed endolymph flow in vertical canal(s). OBJECTIVE To investigate the(More)
We measured the horizontal and vertical components of caloric nystagmus in 120 ears of 60 vertiginous patients who had moderate to vigorous caloric first-phase response in both ears, no spontaneous nystagmus, and no severe disorders in the central nervous system. We provoked a caloric first phase in the supine position with 5 ml of water at 20 degrees C for(More)
Stainless steel crowns were cemented on the mandibular primary molars to make bite raising for an anterior reversed bite case. Chewing force and MKG were recorded before and after bite raising. Data from MKG revealed that co-ordination pattern of muscle activities after bite raising became higher in masseter muscles than those before anterior reversed bite(More)
A case of oblique facial cleft with supernumerary deciduous molars, probably caused by amniotic bands is reported. Besides facial cleft, and cleft palate and lip, there are sulci on the left side of the face and on the left posterior alveolar ridge. The sulci may be impressions of amniotic bands at a late gestational age and supernumerary teeth may also be(More)
The patient was twenty-three year old female with TMJ disorder and crowding. She had often had a clicking sound caused probably by malocclusion since she was eighteen years of age. Limitation of mouth opening with TMJ locking has been occurring since she had an impacted right lower third molar extracted at nineteen. A stabilization splint was applied for(More)
A case is presented here in which mandibular third molars resorbed second molars bilaterally 4 years 9 months after orthodontic treatment was finished. The initial problem was open bite, which was treated by non-extraction followed by a period for observing the third molars. During that period, the mandibular third molars moved mesially to resorb the roots(More)
In order to clarify the development of mandibular movements associated with growth and development of the stomatognathic system, we compared the mandibular movements of children with normal occlusion at different Hellman's dental age between IIA and IIIB, during tooth tapping movements using the following 7 different kinds of frequency; ad lib.; 1 time/sec,(More)
