Download E-books Die elektrosensible Diagnostik in der Neurologie (Schriftenreihe Neurologie Neurology Series) (German Edition) PDF

Mit der Elektroencephalographie und der Elektromyographie hat die Neurophysiologie zwei wichtige Beiträge zur klinischen Routinearbeit geleistet, die aus der Funktions­ diagnostik einerseits des Gehirns, andererseits des peripheren Nervensystems nicht mehr wegzudenken sind. Es fehlte bisher aber eine vergleichbare funktionsanalytische Unter­ suchungsmethode für den Bereich der Rückenmarkspathologie. Eine solche Funktions­ examine wird aber möglich durch die Untersuchung der somatosensorischen Reizantwort­ potentiale (SRAP), deren Ablauf ja u.a. auch vom funktionellen Zustand bestimmter spinaler Systeme abhängt. Als Ergebnis langjähriger experimenteller und klinischer Untersuchungen beschreibt Herr Jörg im vorliegenden Buch die Grundlagen und die Untersuchungsmethodik der SRAP sowie ihren normalen Ablauf und ihre pathologischen Veränderungen. Der zweite spezielle Teil enthält die SRAP-Befunde bei den verschiedenen ·klinischen Krankheitsbildern im Vergleich mit dem klinischen Befund und mit anderen zusätzli­ chen Methoden wie z.B. der Myelographie. Dabei zeigt sich, daß die Untersuchung der SRAP vor allem bei den Rückenmarkserkrankungen durch keine andere Methode zu ersetzen ist. Hinzu kommt als weiterer wichtiger Punkt, daß die Untersuchung der SRAP ebenso wie EEG und EMG eine ungefährliche, beliebig wiederholbare Methode darstellt und schon in dieser Eigenschaft den operativ-diagnostischen Methoden überlegen ist. In der Tat ist sie uns inzwischen schon zu einer unentbehrlichen Hilfe bei der Diagnostik von Rückenmarkskrankheiten geworden, der guy im Interesse der Patienten eine rasche und weite Verbreitung wünschen muß.

Download E-books Verlaufsformen der experimentell-allergischen Neuritis: Elektrophysiologische Untersuchungen und Behandlung durch Plasmaseparation (Schriftenreihe Neurologie Neurology Series) (German Edition) PDF

By Horst Wiethölter

Immunologische Betrachtungen neurologischer Erkrankungen haben in den letzten Jahren zunehmend an Bedeutung gewonnen und zu viel faltigen Untersuchungen mit Modellcharakter angeregt. Im Zentrum des Interesses stand bislang die experimentell-allergische Enzephalo myelitis als zentralnervose autoimmune Entmarkungserkrankung, die entscheidende Impulse zum Verstandnis der Encephalomyelitis disse minata gegeben hat. Das periphere Pendant, die experimentell-allergi sche Neuritis, mit Entmarkung vorwiegend oder ausschliesslich der von Schwann-Zellen bemarkten peripheren Nerven, liefert ausser theoretischer Modellbildung in exklusiver Weise die probability, Entwick lung und Verlauf der Erkrankung mit elektrophysiologischen Messda ten fortlaufend zu objektivieren. Damit sind erstmals Voraussetzungen geschaffen, kontrollierte immun modulierende therapeutische Ein griffe konsequent zu uberwachen und zu prufen. Die Arbeiten waren nur moglich, weil mir viel Hilfe zuteil wurde. Ich danke Herrn Prof. Dr. J. Dichgans fur die engagierte Unterstut zung beim Aufbau eines Labors. Herr Dr. P.-J. Hulser hat mir wah rend der gesamten experimentellen section, insbesondere bei den schwierigen elektrophysiologischen Untersuchungen, tatkraftig zur Seite gestanden und struggle standiger Diskussions-und Ansprechpartner. Die gute Pflege der Tiere, begleitende histomorphologische Aufberei tungen und die Darstellung der Abbildungen verdanke ich der Hilfe von Frau A. Zurn. Bei Untersuchungen im Kontext zur vorliegenden Arbeit hat mir Herr H. Gruninger seine Erfahrung und zahlreiche Wochenenden zur Verfugung gestellt. Herrn Dr. ok.
