Dystonia in complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) responds poorly to treatment. Intrathecal baclofen (ITB) may improve this type of dystonia, but information on its efficacy and safety is limited. A single-blind, placebo-run-in, dose-escalation study was carried out in 42 CRPS patients to evaluate whether dystonia responds to ITB. Thirty-six of the 38(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the effect of botulinum toxin A in the subscapular muscle on shoulder pain and humerus external rotation. METHODS 22 stroke patients with spastic hemiplegia, substantial shoulder pain and reduced external rotation of the humerus participated in a randomised, double blind, placebo controlled effect study. Injections of either botulinum(More)
OBJECTIVE The detailed outcome of surgical repair of high isolated clean sharp (HICS) ulnar nerve lesions has become relevant in view of the recent development of distal nerve transfer. Our goal was to determine the outcome of HICS ulnar nerve repair in order to create a basis for the optimal management of these lesions. METHODS High ulnar nerve lesions(More)
RR Lyrae stars in the Milky Way are good tracers to study the kinematic behaviour and spatial distribution of older stellar populations. A recently established well documented sample of 217 RR Lyr stars with V < 12.5 mag, for which accurate distances and radial velocities as well as proper motions from the Hipparcos and Tycho-2 catalogues are available, has(More)
FUV high resolution spectra of 18 stars, particularly chosen to observe the interstellar medium (ISM), were obtained during the second ORFEUS-SPAS free flight space shuttle mission in December 1996. Among these were 6 objects with a distance to the galactic plane larger than 1 kpc, one SMC and 4 LMC stars. This selction of targets is part of the ORFEUS(More)

DIVA (Deutsches Interferometer f ur Vielkanalpho-tometrie und Astrometrie) is a small satellite designed to perform astrometric and photometric observations of at least one million stars. The instrument simultaneously observes two celestial elds of 0.5 degrees diameter each, separated by at least 60 degrees. The optical connguration consists of two Fizeau(More)
The Milky Way's halo contains clouds of neutral hydrogen with high radial velocities which do not follow the general rotational motion of the Galaxy. Few distances to these high-velocity clouds are known, so even gross properties such as total mass are hard to determine. As a consequence, there is no generally accepted theory regarding their origin. One(More)
