A case is reported of a 56-year-old woman who suffered from recurrent dislocations of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) secondary to an exacerbated tetraspastic syndrome of multiple sclerosis. Following chemical denervation of the masseter and pterygoid muscles with injections of type A botulinum toxin, no further dislocations occurred for periods of up to(More)
Botulinum toxin leads to paresis of the skeletal muscle lasting 2-4 months via an inhibition of acetylcholine release at the neuromuscular junction. Since 1995, botulinum toxin injections have been used in the treatment of recurrent dislocation of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). The chemical denervation of the external pterygoid muscle restricts the(More)
Investigation of visual evoked potentials (VEP) by means of checkerboard inversion gives values with good reproducibility and low standard deviation for the latencies and amplitudes of VEP. In patients with scanty symptoms of cerebrovascular disease and without visual field defects, we found either differences of VEP amplitudes from side to another of over(More)
Auditory-evoked brainstem potentials, visual pattern-evoked and somatosensory-evoked potentials in transitory ischemic attacks (TIA). Pathological findings in patients suffering from transitory ischemic attacks by means of using neuroradiological methods (CCT included) are a rare condition. The combination of visual checkerboard-evoked potentials (VEP),(More)
