Various amplitude ratios were measured in 20 normal controls and 36 patients with midbrain-pontine, thalamic or putaminal lesions in order to evaluate the amplitude abnormalities in scalp far-field N18 following median nerve stimulation. A study of normal controls showed that the distributions of P9/N18, P14/N18 and N18/P14 + N18 resembled a gaussian(More)
The osteo-odonto-keratoprosthesis (OOKP), although described over 40 years ago, remains the keratoprosthesis of choice for end-stage corneal blindness not amenable to penetrating keratoplasty. It is particularly resilient to a hostile environment such as the dry keratinized eye resulting from severe Stevens-Johnson syndrome, ocular cicatricial pemphigoid,(More)
Cardiovascular CT is considered the diagnostic standard for establishing the presence of a functional and dynamic imaging system. It is difficult, however, to estimate the ventricular motion and volumes that are processed using hundreds and thousands of CT images, in a few moments.The main concept and design of our work are two fold - the development of(More)
A clinical lesion study and intraoperative epidural recordings were made to test the origin and clinical significance of the spinal N13 and P13 of somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP) that follow median nerve stimulation. Intraoperatively, the respective peak latencies of spinal P13 and N13 coincided with those of the N1 component of the dorsal cord(More)
Oral cancer in patients with mental retardation has not been reported in detail, although the literature on clinical management of oral malignancies in the general population is extensive. No clear consensus has been established regarding the management of oral cancer in patients with mental retardation. We present herein the case of a 32-year-old Japanese(More)
We report a patient with syringobulbia extending to the pons, who could not open his mouth widely. He had been involved in the traffic accident at 16 years of age. Since them he had suffered numbness in the left neck and arm. At age 30, he became unable to open the mouth widely with pain in the left jaw joint. He also noted dysphagia and tinnitus.(More)
