A correlation has been shown between the cross-sectional area of the cerebral ventricular system and the cross-sectional area of the brain in 62 patients, using the EMI Scanner. The percentage ratio has been abbreviated to VBR. The patients were divided into normal, equivocal, cerebral atrophy and hydrocephalus, according to their PEG's. The measurements(More)

Because of the paucity in the English literature of a detailed and universally accepted EEG grading scale relating to survival after diffuse traumatic and anoxic brain insults, prognostically oriented EEG patterns including recently described abnormalities are presented and discussed. The significance of these patterns may also apply in cases of coma of(More)
Using pneumoencephalography and computerized axial tomography (EMI scanning) Polaroid pictures, the relationship between ventricular size and cerebral size was investigated in 35 patients. Evans' index was used for pneumoencephalograms, and planimetric measurement of the ventricular and cerebral cross-sectional areas was used for EMI scanning. The(More)
This study was undertaken to compare the accuracy of measurements of the ventricular system obtained by the CT scanner and pneumoencephalography (PEG). In it the ventricular system was evaluated in each case by measuring the span of the frontal horns, cellae mediae and third ventricle in relation to the diameter of the inner and outer tables of the skull(More)
The two types of upper limb somatosensory evoked potential abnormality observed in nine patients with syringomyelia were reduced amplitude or absent cervical potentials and an abnormal central conduction time. Although this pattern of abnormalities resembles that observed in other intrinsic spinal cord lesions, it differs from peripheral nerve diseases and(More)
A follow-up of 104 carotid endarterectomies in 90 patients is presented. The operations were performed under general anaesthesia with controlled positive pressure ventilation and with peroperative EEG-registration. The patients have been divided into four groups: Group 1: Patients with no neurological symptoms. Group 2: Patients with transitory ischemic(More)
In 12 patients with traumatic lesions of brachial plexus, we studied somatosensory evoked potentials by stimulation of median, radial, and ulnar nerves at the wrist and by recording at the arm, Erb point, cervical spinal cord, and contralateral cortex. Results after median nerve stimulation in patients with upper trunk lesions were normal. Patients with(More)
The EEGs of a group of patients in anoxic coma following cardiorespiratory arrest were retrospectively studied. Twelve of 70 patients had at least one EEG recorded during the acute period which consisted of epileptiform discharges in the presence of continuous diffuse background activity. Nine of the patients died while three made a generally favorable(More)
