Sample text

Seven patients have been neurophysiologically evaluated by the use of a Cibex apparatus measuring torque and movement velocity ofthe lower limbs simultaneously with static and dynamic recordings of the EMG. Keywords: Spasticity; intrathecal baclofen. Introduction Spasticity is a clinical sign often present in association with decreased muscle strength. It is characterized by a marked increase in muscle tone both of agonist and antagonist muscles typically giving progressive resistance to a fast passive movement of the limb.

An incidence of hearing loss of about 4-5% after surgery for trigeminal neuralgia, and up to 1012% in hemifacial spasm surgery is reported in the literature as well as in our cases [1,3]. In our 2/48 cases of hearing loss following MVD surgery and 2/49 cases of deafness following acoustic neurinoma removal significant changes in BAEPs were mainly observed during the preliminary phases of the operations. Surgical manreuvres performed near, or directly on the acoustic nerve produced significant BAEP changes in all of our acoustic neurinoma patients, and in many undergoing MVD; however, no clear correlation was found between the increase in latency, the reduction in amplitude and the degree of hearing loss.

A computer-assisted system is also introduced. This system enables to transposed data between images obtained from different imaging modalities, MRI, CT, DSA and X-rays, on one workstation. It computes the parameters of the stereotaxic instrument settings reproducing the path of a surgical probe to the centre of a lesion and allows direct visualisation of the points at which a simulated probe trajectory intersects the image slices. Materials and Methods 1) Neurosurgical Room and X-Ray Picture Acquisition In the operative room, we use a neurosurgical stereotaxic frame based on the Talairach method [14] allowing biplane serial angiography without distortion and with a constant enlargement factor.
