Pathology of the vestibular system

GOSZTONYI György, ZILL Edith

The vestibular end organ, in spite of its small size, has extremely rich interconnections with other parts of the nervous system. The vestibular system can be damaged at the end organ, along the vestibular nerve, in its brain stem representations and in its cerebellar projections. The nature of the pathological process damaging the vestibular system is manifold: neoplastic, inflammatory, vascular, nutritional and degenerative. Neural complications of AIDS may also involve the vestibular system.... tovább »

[Vascular surgery in the prevention of stroke]

MOGÁN István, NEMES Atilla, NAGY Zoltán

[In Hungary the prevalence of cerebrovascular disorders has increased so that each year vascular reconstruction surgery is needed in 2800 cases. However, only a quarter of these eligible patients are operated. After a thorough examination if all the indications for carotid surgery are met, more and more patients will end up in vascular reconstruction units. Angiography and surgery are recommended if the carotid artery stenosis is asymptomatic and is more than 90%. Also, under special conditions... tovább »

[Transcranial doppler detection of cerebral vasospasm following aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage]

BARZÓ Pál, BORDA Lóránt, VÖRÖS Erika, KISS Mariann, BODOSI Mihály, DÓCZI Tamás

[In 22 patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage secondary to ruptured intracranial aneurysms serial neurological evaluations, transcranial Doppler examinations and computer tomographic scans were performed. Transcranial Doppler flow velocities were significantly elevated for the group with vasospasm on posthemorrhage day 2. The maximum blood flow velocities were recorded between days 9 and 18, with normalization occurring within the following 3 weeks. Increase in velocity preceded clinical... tovább »

[Spinal lipomas and their surgery]

PARAVICZ Ervin, TÓTH Katalin, TORMA Albert

[18 intraspinal lipomas were operated, mostly in childhood. Surgery seems to be indicated unavoidably in view of preoperative clinical progression and postoperative improvement. Prior MR investigation was indispensable to the surgical procedure.]

[Elective extra-intracranial arterial bypass in the treatment of giant aneurysms of the carotid artery]

BODOSI Mihály, DÓCZI Tamás, BARZÓ Pál

[Clinical details are presented of 5 patients with a giant carotid aneurysm in whom both the occlusion of the aneurysm and the parent internal carotid artery were performed with an extra-intracranial arterial bypass. In the first case ligature of the giant carotid-ophthalmic aneurysm narrowed the parent artery critically and hemiplegia developed. The bypass operation did not improve the clinical outcome. In the second case the occlusion of the aneurysm was performed after an extra-intracranial... tovább »

[Experimental and clinical methods for the measurement of cerebral blood volume]

BERECZKI Dániel, LING Wei, TADAHIRO Otsuka, VIRGIS Acuff, KURT Gruber, CLIFFORD Patlak, JOSEPH Fenstermacher

[A review is given of the methods utilized in evaluating of regional cerebral blood content, both in animal experiments of and the clinical studies with emphasis on the importance and methodological problems of these measurements. A new, double radiolabel method is presented, which is suitable to determine blood content in tissue chunks of 10–30 mg. Red cells are labeled in vivo by 55Fe. The labelled donor” red cells are mixed with 1251-labelled serum albumin and injected intravenously to... tovább »

[Blood reflux into the ventricular system in subarachnoid haemorrhage]

KARSAY Koppány, ENDES János

[Medical histories are given of the three patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage (aneurysma rupture was established in two of them) who had also blood in the large quantities in the intraventricular space during the acute phase. Relying upon CT examinations and favourable disease-process the authors suggest it is not the otherwise well known mechanism, when the aneurysm ruptures into the ventricular system resulting in intraventricular and subarachnoid hemorrhage. It is supposed that the blood... tovább »

[Life events as risk factors in stroke]

MEDE Lilla, JÓRI Adrien, FAZEKAS Gábor, FAZEKAS András

[This preliminary study focused on whether there is any direct correlation betwen Life Events (LE) and stroke; and, additionally thethar hare is a temporal connection between stroke and LE. The number of LE in the stroke-group (21 persons) and that of the controls (21 persons) was not significantly different. In the 6-12 months prior to stroke the LE were significantly higher in the stroke-group than in the control group. The cerebrovascular patients proved to be „untrained" regarding stress.... tovább »
