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)
Volume and tonus oscillations of cerebral blood vessels are measurable with rheoencephalography. A lowered amplitude under resting conditions and an increased reactivity after hyperventilation (with pronounced and prolonged vasoconstriction) was found in tetanic patients, 360 mg Mg/day (as magnesium citrate tablets) was administered in 17 tetanic patients(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)
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)
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)
