A Guillain-Barré syndrome patient showed giant negative T waves on electrocardiography at the height of the disease, with large left ventricular hypokinesis on echocardiography and extensive defects on 123I-meta-iodobenzylguanidine myocardial scintigraphy. Gamma-globulin improved the neurological symptoms, and the above abnormalities resolved. We speculate(More)
The aim of our retrospective study was to determine whether electromyographic findings (motor unit action potentials, MUAPs) can be used in long-term prognosis for profound facial nerve paralysis in patients whose nerve continuity is preserved during surgery for acoustic neuroma. The orbicularis oris, frontal, and orbicularis oculi muscles were examined for(More)
