To determine the importance of an abnormal EEG in phenylketonuria (PKU), we reviewed 137 EEGs from 48 patients with PKU. Patients were divided into three groups: group 1 (n = 14) had only normal EEGs, group 2 (n = 20) had only abnormal EEGs, and group 3 (n = 14) initially had normal EEGs that later became abnormal. The most common EEG abnormality was focal(More)
The effect of a high-intensity static magnetic field on peripheral nerve regeneration is evaluated in rat sciatic nerve. Forty-four rats underwent sciatic nerve repair using polyethylene nerve guides. Postoperatively, the animals were exposed to a 1-tesla magnetic field for 12 hours per day for 4 weeks with appropriate controls. Our results demonstrate that(More)
Die Mensch-Computer-Interaktion beschäftigt sich mit der benutzer- und aufgabenorientierten Konzeption, Implementierung und Evaluierung von interaktiven Systemen. Sie ist ein traditioneller, gleichzeitig in Wissenschaft und Praxis immer bedeutender werdender Bereich der Informatik. In diesem Beitrag wird die Mensch-Computer-Interaktion bezüglich ihrer(More)
Proximal median neuropathies are uncommon. They are usually caused by overuse of the forearm, anatomic variations, or both. Forearm pain, weakness of muscles supplied by the affected nerves, and sensory loss, including the thenar eminence, are common clinical findings. Nerve conduction studies and needle electromyography are helpful in the diagnosis of(More)
Primary lesions affecting the sciatic nerve are uncommon, especially in children. Isolated sciatic nerve involvement was found in ten patients during an 8 1/2-year period at a metropolitan children's hospital. Etiologic mechanisms included three with compression and one each with stretch injury after operation using the lithotomy position, stretch injury(More)
