Otmar Meienberg, M. Mumenthaler's Sakkadische Augenbewegungen in der neurologischen und PDF

Die Untersuchung der Augenmotilität kann einerseits eine Parese, andererseits aber auch Anomalien im Ablauf der Blickbewegungen aufdecken. Diese letzteren geschehen durch sakkadische Augenbewegungen, deren exakte Erfassung und examine mittels okulographischer Methoden möglich ist. Erst diese exakt reproduzierbaren, registrierbaren und quantifizierbaren Techniken erlauben einen wissenschaftlich fundierten Einsatz in der neuroophthalmologischen Diagnostik.

Sample text

Predict facial weakness, numbness, and hearing loss after radiosurgery [3]. Figure 6 shows one family of dose-response curves for facial neuropathy. We do not routinely consult these risk-prediction curves for help in dose prescription. Our current policy is to treat acoustic tumors to a minimum tumor dose of 12–14 Gy depending upon the size of the tumor and how important the goals of hearing preservation and avoidance of facial or trigeminal neuropathies are in each individual patient. Higher doses may even be considered in patients with tumors that recur following prior resection who have no hearing and facial weakness and/or numbness.

When this response becomes chronic, fibroblasts replace much of the mass of the AVM. Szeifert et al. [42] showed that myofibroblasts could be identified within the AVM and may provide some element of contractility to the obliteration process. Schneider et al. [36] reported a recent review of the histopathology of AVM radiosurgery from 9 specimens 10–60 months after irradiation. In most patients where histology has been obtained, only subtotal obliteration had been found (hence the need for AVM removal).
