It has been suggested that the cerebellum plays a role in the event-based timing of synchronized repetitive movements. We hypothesized that regularity of rhythmic movements in essential tremor (ET) is impaired, since several lines of evidence suggest the involvement of the cerebellum in the pathomechanism of ET. To test this assumption, we examined the(More)
The case of a 3-month-old, prematurely born boy with auditory brainstem response (ABR), verified profound hearing loss and normal transitory evoked otoacoustic emission is presented. Isolated retrocochlear deafness which did not influence TEOAE is hypothesised as a possible cause. The critical evaluation of results when using TEOAE as a screening method is(More)
Reinforced Gore-Tex prostheses were implanted into the trachea, above the bifurcation, in 11 dogs. The first 3 animals died within a few days, due to an inappropriate surgical technique. The remaining animals were subjected to an adequate surgical procedure and all survived for a period of at least several months, except one which died of an(More)
We investigated the asymmetry of tremor intensity, frequency and frequency dispersion of Parkinsonian (PT) and essential (ET) tremor using accelerometry. Data of the more and less trembling hands were statistically elaborated. We found that tremor intensity was significantly asymmetric not only in PT but also in ET, while frequency and frequency dispersion(More)
Results of objective audiometry of 109 infants and children after purulent meningitis are presented. Among them 17 patients got dexamethasone as a supportive therapy. There was no statistically significant difference in hearing loss between the dexamethasone-treated and the control group. (41 vs 43% sensorineural hearing loss respectively). Authors do not(More)
The authors give an account of their experiences with cochlear implants on the basis of 10 years' work. Preoperative evaluation, operating methods and postoperative rehabilitation are presented. During a decade 56 operations were performed, 11 of them on children. Results with prelingually deaf children are demonstrated together with the phenomenon of(More)
Neonatal hyperbilirubinaemia is a common cause of sensorineural hearing loss. There is no exact method to detect the neurotoxicity of bilirubin. On the other hand the auditory pathway is known to be one of the most sensitive part of the CNS to this toxic agent. 39 one-year-old children were examined by BERA, who had had hyperbilirubinaemia in the newborn(More)
Cystic echinococcosis is a worldwide zoonose which is not infectious from man to man occurring seldom in our country. The diagnosis and the treatment of a case of a 4-year-old girl with large left-sided lung cyst were presented. Diagnosis was based on history, clinical findings, imaging techniques (conventional X-ray examination, ultrasonography, computer(More)
Thromboangiits obliterans (Buerger's disease) is a non-atherosclerotic, segmental inflammatory and obliterative disease affecting small and medium sized arteries and veins. The etiology is still unknown, but it is in close relationship with tobacco use. Symptoms begin under the age of 45 years and the undulating course is typical. Patients usually present(More)
PURPOSE The aim of our study was to detect objective signs of deterioration of motor performance in epilepsy patients treated with chronic valproate therapy. METHODS We examined 14 controls and 15 epilepsy patients receiving chronic valproate monotherapy, who had no subjective complaints related to motor function. Regularity and maximum frequency of(More)
