A functional cervical spine disorder is often the cause for persistent vertigo, which can last months or several years. The existence of cervical vertigo is not generally recognized, mainly because an objectivation of the cervical nystagmus is not easily understood by many examiners. In this study we examine additional parameters, which underline the(More)
The steady-state auditory evoked magnetic field and the Pbm, the magnetic counterpart of the second frontocentrally positive middle latency component of the transitory auditory evoked potential, were measured in ten tinnitus patients using a 122-channel gradiometer system. The patients had varying degrees of hearing loss. In all patients, the tinnitus(More)
Existing investigations of cervical hearing disorders have been carried out predominantly in patients in whom those with vertebrobasilar insufficiencies (VBI) could not be distinguished from patients suffering from functional deficit of the upper cervical spine. Since two different syndromes exist, no statement can be made about cervical hearing disorders.(More)
The acute cervical vertigo with the single symptome of rotary vertigo is most probably caused by a functional disturbance in the upper third of the cervical spine. Distinct patho-anatomical changes could not be observed. The findings on the cervical spine are based on an osteopathic examination. The therapy of choice is a manipulation. Three cases are(More)
BACKGROUND In 10-20% of patients with a simple whiplash-injury without severe structural lesions, a chronification of the complaints occurs. The question is whether some unidentified pathogenic factors exist. SCIENTIFIC QUESTION Investigations have demonstrated that mandibular and head-neck movements are coordinated and centrally controlled and that a(More)
BACKGROUND A standardized diagnostic protocol for children's vestibular assessment is still missing in daily clinical life. As rotatory chair testing and caloric test are usually not tolerated well by children, the aim of our study was not only to evaluate the importance and practicability of the video head impulse test performed in children with and(More)
BACKGROUND The vertebral genesis of many functional disorders in otorhinolaryngology, such as dizziness, hearing-impairment, ear-pressure, ear-pain, foreign body sensation in the throat and dysphonia, is suggested by the success of spinal manipulative therapy, particularly of the atlanto-occipital joint. Up to now, there are no retrospective investigations(More)
After a head or a cervical injury dysphonia and its accompanying globus syndrome are often ignored, even if the existence of these traumatic sequelae are repeatedly reported. Till now there is no coherent idea about their pathogenesis, wherefore in the individual case wide differences exist in the diagnosis, treatment and in the expert opinion. It could be(More)
Voice function was phoniatrically investigated pre- and postoperatively in 66 patients undergoing thyroidectomy. Postoperatively we found a disturbance of the voice in 25 patients (43%), though there was a normal function of the recurrent laryngeal nerve. Typical symptoms were a reduced average pitch of the speaking voice, a lowering of the upper and the(More)
Organophosphorus compounds (OPC) are widely used as insecticides and cause a high number of acute and chronic intoxications in man. Their toxicological properties lead among others to disturbances of the central nervous system. Hearing disturbances have been reported after chronic exposure to OPC, and changes in bioelectric brain activity have been observed(More)
