Personality traits in scheuermann's disease - a controlled study

SOMHEGYI Annamária, JÁNOSFI Zsuzsa, BALÁZS István, RATKÓ István

High muscle tone in various muscle groups is typical in Scheuermann's disease, and secondary fibromyalgia often occurs in young adults after this condition. There are clinical observations of emotional-psychological disturbances in adolescents with Scheuermann's osteochondritis. For these reasons it was of interest to determine whether any particular personality traits were manifested in adolescents with Scheuermann's disease, that - in addition to the spinal pathology – would contribute to the... tovább »

Management proposal for the treatment of acute odontoid fractures

RÓBERT Veres, GILES Hamilton Vince

Optimum management of the acute odontoid fracture has always been extensively discussed. Nowadays, with the availability of new operative techniques such as anterior odontoid screw fixation and the posterior C1-C2 transarticular screw fixation the management policy has to be reevaluated. The authors review 115 cases of type II and type III acute odontoid fractures admitted to the National Institute of Traumatology in Budapest between 1980 and 1990. For study purposes a modified... tovább »

[CT guided stereotactic radiosurgical treatment of cerebral metastatic tumors]

FEDORCSÁK Imre, HORVÁTH Ákos, KONTRA Gábor, SLOWIK Felicia, OSZTIE Éva

[Radiosurgery has in recent years been used with promising results in the treatment of cerebral metastases. Between July 1991 and January 1993 we treated 23 patients harbouring brain metastases (39 lesions) with our Linear accelerator based radiosurgery system. The median tumor size was 1.9 cm (1.0-3.0 cm) and the median delivered dose was 18.7 Gy (13–25Gy). Follow up CT scans at 4 months showed a complete remission or greater than 50% tumor volume reduction in 19 patients (82%). No change was... tovább »

[Real time and color doppler sonographic investigation in cases of fetal hydrocephaly and cerebral hemorrhage]

JAKOBOVITS Ákos, JÖRN Hendrik

[In three hydrocephalic and one fetus with intra- and periventricular hemorrhage real time imaging was used to identify cerebral changes. Color flow imaging was used to identify the fetal middle cerebral and umbilical artery for subsequent pulsed Doppler sonographic studies. Cerebral blood flow patterns of hydrocephalik fetuses seem to differ individually from case to case presenting normal, increased and decreased velocity waveform indices. The resistance index and pulsatility index of the... tovább »

[The correlation between the calcium and water content and the ultrasonic imaging of carotid stenotic processes]

FÜLESDI Béla, KÁPOSZTA Zoltán, HEGEDŰS Katalin, BACSÓ József, CSIBA László

[B-mode ultrasound images were recorded and densitometrically evaluated from the cervical segment of the carotid arteries of moribund patients. After the death of the patients the bifurcations of the carotis arteries were removed. Water and calcium content of the normal vessel wall, the thrombi and the plaques were determined with tissue drying and with X-ray spectroscopy. Water and calcium content of the pathological lesions were compared to optical density values of the identical location on... tovább »
