When studied in vitro, type I hair cells in amniote vestibular organs have a large, negatively activating K+ conductance. In type II hair cells, as in nonvestibular hair cells, outwardly rectifying K+ conductances are smaller and more positively activating. As a result, type I cells have more negative resting potentials and smaller input resistances than do(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate pathological gait in patients with unilateral acoustic neuroma using tactile sensors placed under both feet. MATERIAL AND METHODS Forty-three patients were enrolled in the study. They were categorized into two groups: the small tumor group had tumors < 2 cm from the porus acousticus without any brainstem compression and the large(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the clinical epidemiological characteristics of vertigo. METHODS Retrospective study on 2169 patients with vertigo (male 883, female 1286, 7-90 years old) of the past 20 years. RESULTS More than 50 kinds of causative diseases were recognized. Peripheral, central, and unclassified vertigo took up 33.8, 17.2 and 26.8% of patients,(More)
Cochlear and type I vestibular hair cells of mammals express negatively activating potassium (K+) conductances, called g K,n and g K,L respectively, which are important in setting the hair cells’ resting potentials and input conductances. It has been suggested that the channels underlying both conductances include KCNQ4 subunits from the KCNQ family of K+(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the patterns of gait and locomotion in three dimension space in patients with vestibular disorders. METHODS A 3D motion analysis system was employed to evaluate locomotor pattern and body's oscillation during gait under different conditions (normal, slow, fast speeds walking with eye open and normal speed walking with eyes closed)(More)
MASSIVE pulmonary embolism (PE), although an uncommon complication in liver transplant surgery is associated with a high mortality rate. Five of nine patients reported to have massive PE in the past 12 yr died from this complication. We report a case of PE that occurred in the same patient during two consecutive liver transplant procedures in association(More)
