HYPOTHESIS To aid in realistic counseling of patients at the time of their first visit concerning their chances for recovery, we created a simple prognostic model for predicting hearing recovery in idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss (ISSHL). BACKGROUND An important element of research on ISSHL is to identify prognostic factors for this disease.(More)
Stationary visual information has a stabilizing effect on posture, whereas moving visual information is destabilizing. We compared the influence of a stationary or moving fixation point to the influence of stationary or moving large-field stimulation, as well as the interaction between a fixation point and a large-field stimulus. We recorded body sway in 20(More)
Alexander’s law (AL) states that the slow-phase velocity of spontaneous nystagmus of peripheral vestibular origin is dependent on horizontal gaze position, with greater velocity when gaze is directed in the fast-phase direction. AL is thought to be a compensatory reaction resulting from adaptive changes in the horizontal ocular motor neural integrator.(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effectiveness of systemic high-dose dexamethasone therapy for sudden sensorineural hearing loss in comparison to the previous treatment regimen at our clinic with systemic prednisone 100 mg daily for 7 days analyzed in a previous study. METHODS We conducted a retrospective review of an electronic patient data base of 79 patients(More)
The long-term results of radiotherapy in primary carcinoma of the vagina are not well defined. The treatment results of 41 patients with primary malignancies of the vagina were analyzed. The mean follow-up period was 77.3 months (2.3–404 months). The predominant histology was squamous cell carcinoma, FIGO stages I: n = 7 (17.1%), II: n = 13 (31.7%), III: n(More)
We present the unique case of a patient with a circumscribed solitary cerebral metastasis of a malignant melanoma extending from the medial part of the superior temporal gyrus to the lower part of the 1st long insular gyrus causing gait and stance instability and an ipsiversive tilt of the subjective visual vertical. Oculomotor disorders could not be(More)
Dynamic Programming (DP) is a popular and efficient method for calculating disparity maps from stereo images. It allows for meeting real-time constraints even on low-cost hardware. Therefore, it is frequently used in real-world applications, although more accurate algorithms exist. We present a refined DP stereo processing algorithm which is based on a(More)
In research projects for future ADAS functions a dense environment model covering free space is often necessary, which is obtained by complementing or replacing a common object list by a grid based environment model. The drawbacks of grid based models are their demands for memory, computational resources and bandwidth. This paper analyzes the influence of(More)
A 59-year-old patient was admitted complaining breathing-dependent pain in the lower right chest and increasing dyspnoea. Diminished breath sounds in the right lung and dullness in the lower right chest were found. Chest x-ray and complementary CT scan showed an intrapulmonary Kirschner wire and a large haematothorax but no pneumothorax. At 6 weeks before(More)
Hearing loss is a common symptom in Fabry disease, but neither its natural course nor its aetiology has been defined precisely. The aim of this study was to provide a detailed epidemiological description of hearing impairment in patients in the Fabry Outcome Survey (FOS), which is the largest available database of Fabry patients. Questionnaires were(More)
