Fatal cerebral hemorrhage due to autonomic dysreflexia in a tetraplegic patient: case report and review
A case of fatal cerebral hemorrhage due to autonomic dysreflexia is presented in order to demonstrate the gravity of this particular syndrome. Expand
Maggot therapy for treating pressure ulcers in spinal cord injury patients.
It is demonstrated that maggot therapy can be beneficial in the treatment of pressure ulcers in persons with spinal cord injuries and significantly more effective and efficient than the current, conventional treatment alternatives being used. Expand
Sensory detection and pain thresholds in spinal cord injury patients with and without dysesthetic pain, and in chronic low back pain patients.
Fundamental differences in somatosensory processing when DPS is or is not a consequence of SCI are suggested, including a lower sensory detection threshold at the rostral trunk skin site than did the SCI no-pain group. Expand
Permeability of cerebral blood vessels in experimental allergic encephalomyelitis studied by radioactive iodinated bovine albumin
THE PURPOSE of these experiments was to study vascular permeability in the nervous system during the development of experimental allergic encephalomyelitis (EAE) and the temporal and spatialExpand
Spinal cord injury. An overview.
Advancements in the management of urologic complications such as the neurogenic bladder have been essential to improving the quality of life and longevity of patients with spinal cord injury. TheseExpand
Auditory P3 event related potentials (ERP) and brainstem auditory evoked responses (BAER) after spinal cord injury in humans.
Primary subcortical auditory information processing stages remain intact after SCI although later stages may be significantly altered, and cortical reorganization may occur subsequent to SCI. Expand
Incidence and characteristics of spinal cord injured patients with a family history of alcoholism.
Spinal cord injured subjects with a family history of alcoholism reported significantly more problems with alcohol before, at the time, and after their injury, suggesting a relationship between the predisposition to alcoholism and accidents that result in catastrophic injury. Expand
Event-related brain potentials during orienting to auditory and visual stimulation in spinal cord injured humans
Information processing variables, analyzed as event-related potentials, indicated that the somatosensory cortex of SCI groups had a flattened response to auditory stimulation and that the SCI subject hyperresponsive to stimulation. Expand
