Download Die elektrosensible Diagnostik in der Neurologie by Privatdozent Dr. Johannes Jörg (auth.) PDF

By Privatdozent Dr. Johannes Jörg (auth.)

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.

Denson G. Fujikawa 2+ within the early Nineteen Eighties it was once famous that over the top Ca inflow, possibly via 2+ 2+ voltage-gated Ca channels, with a resultant raise in intracellular Ca, was once linked to neuronal demise from cerebral ischemia, hypoglycemia, and standing epilepticus (Siejo 1981). Calcium activation of phospholipases, with arachidonic acid accumulation and its oxidation, producing loose radicals, was once considered a possible mechanism in which neuronal harm happens. In cerebral ischemia and a couple of+ hypoglycemia, power failure used to be considered the cause of over the top Ca inflow, while in prestige epilepticus it was once suggestion that repetitive depolarizations have been liable (Siejo 1981). in the meantime, John Olney discovered that monosodium glutamate, the nutrition additive, whilst given to immature rats, used to be linked to neuronal degeneration within the arcuate nucleus of the hypothalamus, which lacks a blood-brain barrier (Olney 1969). He up this statement with a chain of observations within the Seventies that management of kainic acid, which we now understand prompts the GluR5-7 subtypes of glutamate receptor, and different glutamate analogues, prompted not just post-synaptic cytoplasmic swelling, but additionally dark-cell degeneration of neurons, whilst considered by way of electron microscopy (Olney 1971; Olney et al. 1974).
