When rat lens is incubated in 30 mM galactose overnight, the extent of accumulation of rubidium ions (Rb) and myoinositol (MI) are affected, as well as the Na-K ATPase activity. Rb accumulation and Na-K ATPase activity are only slightly affected compared to the dramatic drop in MI accumulation. These changes are completely abolished by sorbinil, which(More)
Clinical significance of multimodality evoked potentials (MEPs) consisting of auditory evoked brainstem response (ABR), cortical somatosensory evoked potential (SEP) and visual evoked potential (VEP) was studied in 14 cases with severe head injuries. The cases in this series associated with cerebral contusion and/or intracranial mass lesions such as acute(More)
A case of brain metastasis of lung cancer with Eaton-Lambert syndrome (ELS) is reported. A 45-year-old male was admitted to the Department of Surgery in Kurume University Hospital on November 13, 1985, complaining of general fatigue. On admission, neurological examination revealed diplopia and fatigue of the extremities. The electromyogram (EMG) showed the(More)
Changes in multimodality evoked potentials (MEP's), consisting of somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP's), visual evoked potentials (VEP's), and auditory evoked brainstem responses (AEBR's), were studied in 36 patients with hypertensive putaminal hemorrhage to ascertain the relation among areas and distribution of brain dysfunction, the size of hemorrhage(More)
Disturbance of the hemispheric cerebral circulation and brain dysfunction in acute intracranial hypertension were evaluated noninvasively by ultrasonic Doppler technique and multimodality evoked potentials consisting of auditory evoked brain-stem response (ABR), cortical somatosensory evoked potential (SEP) and visual evoked potential (VEP) in 36 patients(More)
Efficacy and limitation of barbiturate therapy employed as postoperative treatment for acute traumatic intracranial hematomas were studied in 20 patients. The clinical cases in this series included 15 males and 5 females with mean age of 41.8 years who all were operated on for intracranial hematomas within 3 days after injury. Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) score(More)
The changes in the two consistent components of epidural pressure pulse wave (EDP-PW), P1 and P2 waves, and mean velocity of common carotid blood flow (CBFV) were studied in 21 patients with acute intracranial hypertension to investigate the origin of th the amplitude change in these components. The amplitudes of P2 wave increased progressively with the(More)
