Fifteen patients aged between 26 and 55 years with the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and various cerebral manifestations of the disease underwent an all-night sleep electroencephalogram (EEG) registration. The recordings of 15 age-matched volunteers were examined as controls. Sleep stages were determined visually and the following spectral(More)
Imaging findings of morphology and regional cerebral blood flow in two patients suffering from epileptic seizures are presented. CT and MRI revealed heterotopic gray matter as a probable structural correlate, causing the seizure disorder. 99mTc hexamethyl-propylenamine oxime (HM-PAO) SPECT demonstrated focally increased regional cerebral blood flow in both(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate whether early reductions in CT perfusion parameters predict response to pre-operative chemotherapy prior to surgery for gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) and gastric cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-eight patients with adenocarcinoma of the gastro-esophageal junction (GEJ) and stomach were included. Patients received three series(More)
We report on a 67-year-old male patient with progressive right-sided hemiparesis predominating in the arm and right-sided myoclonias. The EEG showed periodic delta activity in the left hemisphere. The patient died of pulmonary embolism 10 weeks after the onset of the symptoms. The neuropathological examination was indicative of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease:(More)
15 male AIDS-patients from 26 to 55 years (mean 41.8 +/- 8.5) with various cerebral manifestations had a whole-night-sleep-EEG registration. As control the recordings of 15 age-matched volunteers (26-55 years, mean 41.8 +/- 9.8) were examined. Spectral characteristics of elementary EEG-epochs of 40 s length were computed, and sleep staging was performed(More)
Here we investigated the applicability of a computer-aided video-tracking as a method for evaluating potential deficits of neural information processing in patients with AIDS and those showing only positive HIV-seroreactivity. Video-tracking was accompanied with a simultaneous recording of EEG. Eight HIV-positive asymptomatic volunteers and eight(More)
Polysomnograms were recorded of twelve patients with acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) during different stages in an open design. During the first night no hypnotics were administered, during the second night 30 mg flurazepam per os were given. Flurazepam affected mainly the NREM parameters. The times "awake" during the night were reduced, sleep(More)
