[The effect of cerebrospinal fluid drainage on middle cerebral artery blood flow velocity in conditions with raised intracarnial pressure]

DÓCZI Tamás, KOPNICZKY Zsolt, BODOSI Mihály, BARZÓ Pál, ROTYIS Mária

[Middle cerebral artery (MCA) blood flow velocity and intracranial pressure (ICP) were recorded in 42 patients suffering from raised ICP. A major (ICP25 mmHg) or moderate (251CP15 mmHg) degree of intracranial hypertension was reduced by means of either continuous or intermittent CSF drainage. Measurements of MCA blood flow velocity were carried out with transcranial Doppler sonography (TCD). Three types of reactions were observed with regard to cerebral blood flow velocity (CBFV) changes in... tovább »

[Measurements of regional cerebral blood flow and blood flow velocity in experimental intracarnial hypertension: infusion via the cisterna magna in rabbits]

DÓCZI Tamás, BODOSI Mihály, BUZA Zoltán, BARZÓ Pál, CSETE Klára

[The cerebral blood flow velocity (CBFV), as measured by transcranial Doppler sonography (TCD) via the transorbital route in the intracranial segment of internal carotid artery (ICA), and the regional cerebral blood (volume) flow (rCBF) in the corresponding cortical areas, as measured by the hydrogen clearance technique, were determined in 8 New Zealand White rabbits undergoing cisterna magna infusion for elevation of the intracranial pressure (ICP). In the lower range of autoregulation, i. e.... tovább »

[Benign focal amyotrophy]

MECHLER Ferenc, DIÓSZEGHY Péter, MOLNÁR Mária, MOLNÁR Tibor

[A 36 year old female is presented with focal segmental atrophy and weakness of the right lower limb affecting predominantly the lower leg. The slight asymmetry presentsince in her childhood started to progress at the beginning of the fourth decade. The EMG and the muscle histology revealed chronic neurogenic changes, which were consistent with spinal motoneuron lesions. The electrophysiological investigations verified the focal segmental localisation of the involvement. The benign course and... tovább »

[Acute-phase proteins in various psychotic states]

SZILÁGY Á. Katalin, FRÁTER Rózsa, BOLLA Marianna

[Some of the so-called acute-phase proteins were identified in the sera of 27 psychotic female patients. Values measured in the acute psychotic state were compared to those measured in the period of stabilization of the same patient, whether an acute psychotic state could be qualified from this point of view as a stress reaction. In agreement with some of the literary data these results did not support the this hypothesis. In psychotic states the concentrations of the measured proteins... tovább »

[Post-stroke depression]

NAGY Zoltán, ASZALÓS Zsuzsa, PATAKY Ilona, SIMON Andrea

[The pathogenesis of depression following cerebrovascular accident (post-stroke depression) is poorly understood. Thirty seven (28%) out of 134 patients from the „Budapest Stroke Data Bank" were found to be depressed. Thirty two patients (86%) in this group were affected by depression within three months or the stroke. Diagnosis of depression was bades on CES-D, Ham-D and Zung scales, and a word fluency test was performed with 11 depressed and 11 non-depressed patients. Comparing the frequency... tovább »

[The role of brainstem auditory evoked potentials in the diagnosis of vertebrobasilar insufficiency]

MOGYORÓS Ilona

[The diagnostic usefulness of brainstem auditory evoked potentials was compared with other diagnostic possibilities. Brainstem auditory evoked potential was examined in patients with vertebrobasilar insufficiency. Based on the duration of clinical symptoms, patients were divided into three groups: 85 patients with transient ischaemic attack (TIA), 31 patients with prolonged ischaemic symptoms, and 35 patients with chronic symptoms were examined. The latency and interpeak latency of the auditory... tovább »

[Spontaneous intracerebral haematomas in children]

VELKEY Imre, DOBAI József, GYARMATI János

[The authors report two cases of spontaneous intracerebral haematomas in children. Both children presented with serious symptoms of acute intracerebral haemorrhage. Investigations do not reveal the cause of the haemorrhage in either of the cases and angiography detected no arteriovenous malformation. The term ,,occult” is reserved for these cases, as spontaneous intracerebral haematomas do not result in space-occupying process or CSF passage blockage and may be treated medically.]
