It has been proven with clinical, psychological and electromyographic tests that the hyperventilation (HV) syndrome cannot be separated from so-called genuine tetany. Tetanic patients with and without HV are characterized by a significant hypocalcemia; but a significant hypomagnesemia is exclusively found in tetanic patients with HV attacks. Possible(More)
One hundred and six selected patients (71 women, 35 men) suffering from transient cerebral ischaemic attacks (TIA) when aged less than 50 years received a comprehensive diagnostic assessment. Patients were classified into three subgroups, into which 9% could be assigned in approximately equal proportions. These were group A; TIA patients with tetanic(More)
After removal of more than 70% of the sialic acid from the erythrocyte membrane by treatment with neuraminidase, trifluoperazine (TFP) increased the rapid and slow phase of 45Ca2+ uptake into erythrocytes, identically to Ca2+ uptake into untreated erythrocytes from patients with tetanic syndrome. Both phases of 45Ca2+ influx were inhibited by extracellular(More)
An analysis of the types of attacks occurring in tetanus patients shows that epileptic attacks are a relatively frequent occurrence in such patients. In patients under anti-epileptic therapy it is readily possible for the clinical picture to be concealed, and this may then result in irreversible damage due to the disturbance of metabolism remaining(More)
The authors present the changes of the orofacial system observed in 30 patients (of both sexes) with tetanic syndrome in the framework of a pilot study. The DMF-S values varied for different age groups from 40.6 to 79.5. The hypoplasia index was 1.3-2.1; and the periodontal disease index according to Kötzschke, 18.6-48.2%. Epithelial desquamation of varying(More)
A study of the available specialized literature shows that it is not yet possible to provide clear evidence for a direct causal relationship between anticonvulsive medication and skeletal demineralization caused by it. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that such disorders of ossification be not overhastily described by terms declaring the changes in(More)
