[Clinical significance of abdominal-reflex dissociation]

LEHOCZKY Tibor, FODOR Tamás

[1. The behaviour of the abdominal skin reflex and abdominal muscle reflex was investigated in 500 subjects. Seven pathologies were found to have complete or true abdominal reflex dissociation: myelopathy 86.6%, multiple sclerosis 77%, syringomyelia 75%, tumor spinalis 53.3%, hemiplegia 28.8%, tabes 11.5%, neurolues 9.2%. Partial dissociation was observed in parkinsonism (5%) and neurasthenia (2%), the significance of which is debatable. The number of cases of syringomyelia is too small to draw... tovább »

ZOLTÁN László

[The author performed stitching of a brain chamber opened during meningocerebral scar excision in six cases. Five patients suffered from post-traumatic epilepsy. Of these, 4 were virtually asymptomatic. The condition of the fifth, whose suture proved inadequate, did not improve. One patient had an abscess at the site of the ventricular suture that did not travel with the ventricle after surgery. Besides the novelty of the surgical technique, for which no equivalent or similar surgical procedure... tovább »

[Posttraumatic intracerebral pneumocele]

STEPIEN Lucjan

[The intracerebral pneumothorax (IP) was first described by Chiari in 1884 (1), and then detected by Luckett (2) in 1913 with rtg. as air trapped in the brain ventricle after a skull fracture. Since that time, numerous publications have discussed the aetiology, symptomatology and treatment of IP; in the Polish literature Chorobski and Tyczka (3), Zawadowski (4), Herman and Spiro (5). There are about 120 publications on the same subject in the literature.]
