We investigated the role of a muscular defense in the stabilization and protection of the ankle joint against sudden forced inversion. Ten volunteers with mechanically stable ankles were tested in different standing and walking situations using a trap door model and lower extremity electromyography and electrogoniometers. Peroneal electromyographic activity… (More)
UNLABELLED The aim of this study was to investigate modern and classical electroencephalographic (EEG) variables in response to remifentanil and propofol infusions. We hypothesized that modern EEG variables may indicate the effects of propofol but not of remifentanil. Twenty-five patients were included in the study after the end of elective spine surgery… (More)
UNLABELLED A new commercial auditory evoked potential (AEP) monitor (A-line AEP monitor) was developed to calculate an index (ARX AEP index; AAI) by automatically using the amplitudes and latencies of the AEP. We investigated 30 patients before spine surgery. AAI; bispectral index (BIS); relative (%) delta, theta, alpha, and beta; spectral edge frequency;… (More)
BACKGROUND A new electroencephalogram monitor, the Narcotrend, was developed to measure anesthetic depth. The authors compared the Narcotrend, the Bispectral Index, and classic electroencephalographic and hemodynamic parameters during anesthesia with propofol and remifentanil. METHODS The authors investigated 25 patients undergoing laminectomy at… (More)
The frequency of cerebral cramp-seizures of alcoholics is higher as stated in literature. Alcoholics with a withdrawal syndrome are liable to cerebral cramp-seizures. A cerebral cramp-seizure indicates an unfavourable prognosis of the disease.
