Intractable ventricular tachyarrhythmia associated with hypomagnesemia responds well to magnesium given intravenously. Two patients with recurrent ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation associated with normal serum magnesium levels and resistant to treatment with potassium chloride, lidocaine and bretylium tosylate responded dramatically to(More)
Cell proliferation and neurogenesis in the brainstem vestibular nucleus complex (VNC) has previously been reported following unilateral vestibular neurectomy in the cat. In this study, we examined the rate of cell proliferation and survival in the adult rat VNC following bilateral vestibular deafferentation (BVD), using injections of bromodeoxyuridine(More)
Previous studies in humans have shown that bilateral loss of vestibular function is associated with a significant bilateral atrophy of the hippocampus, which correlated with the patients' spatial memory deficits. More recently, patients who had recovered from unilateral vestibular neuritis have been reported to exhibit a significant atrophy of the left(More)
