However, no data exist comparing the impact of combined presence of both aortic plaques and MAC on embolic events, deaths associated with cerebral(More)
In a Group of 20 healthy subjects and 16 patients with different central motor disorders a reflexological investigation was made in the upper part of the trapezius muscle. The reflex responses were produced by percussion with a reflex hammer on several sites on the head, trunk and upper extremities and identified as excitatory and inhibitory modulations of(More)
