3d digital craniocorpography: whiplash injury

The goal of this work is to study the vestibular system of whiplash people using a 3D dCCG system. A new experimental set-up, based on optoelettronic technique, was developed to evaluate the 3D pattern of movement of head and trunk in different experimental set-ups. The exam protocol is very close to the classical one with […]


3d digital craniocorpography: normalcy data

CranioCorpoGraphy (CCG) is one of the most common test to evaluate equilibrium and coordination, studying the pattern of movement of markers placed on the head and trunk. The aim of this work is the assess the coordination of healthy people in different experimental set-ups through a 3D dCCG system. So an optoelectronic system in a […]


The role of free radicals and plasmatic antioxidant in menière syndrome

The objective of this study is the supposition, verified through suitable hematochemical tests, of the co-presence in the etiopathogenesis of the Menière syndrome and/or in the labyrinth pathologies or hypacusia also of central/systemic microtoxicosis. We do not therefore exclude other well known hypotheses on the causality of these pathologies, but one finds, above all in […]


The evaluation of vertebral artery involvement in vertigo by means of a standard echodoppler procedure

The vertebral artery origins from the subclavian artery, moves cranially and penetrates into the “foramen magnum” to meet the cotralateral artery so to origin the basilary artery. The length of the vertebral artery is approx. 25 cm. with a diameter between 3 and 6 mm. In 60% of the normal population, the vertebral arteries don’t […]


Tetra-ataxiometry in falling elderly

TETRAATAXIOMETRY (BY TETRAX, ISRAEL) IS A THE LAST VERSION OF STATIC POSTUROGRAPHY ALLOWING SIMULTANEOUS RECORDING OF FORCES APPLIED AT RIGHT AND LEFT FOOT AND RIGHT AND LEFT TOES AND HEELS. IN THIS WAY IT IS POSSIBLE TO ASSESS BOTH GLOBAL BALANCE AND THE SPECIFIC COORDINATION OF RIGHT, LEFT, ANTERIOR AND POSTERIOR PARTS OF THE BODY […]


The rithm of melatonin in dizziness a possible role in the genesis of this symptom?

THE ROLE OF THE VESTIBULAR SYSTEM IS TO INTEGRATE POLISENSORIAL CUES AND PROVIDE A CONTINUOS AND PRECISE REPRESENTATION EITHER OF THE BODY SHAPE (SEGMENTAL BODY ORIENTATION, THAT TO SAY PERCEPTION OF THE RECIPROCAL POSITION OF BODY SEGMENTS ) OR THE ORIENTATION OF THE BODY INTO THE ENVIRONMENT (SPATIAL ORIENTATION). MELATONIN IS A NATURAL HORMONE SECRETED […]


The vestibular autorotation test in whiplash injuries

THE FUNCTION OF THE VESTIBULO-OCULAR REFLEX (VOR) IS TO STABILIZE VISUAL IMAGES ON THE RETINA DURING HEAD MOVEMENTS, THEREBY ENSURING MAXIMAL VISUAL ACUITY. IT IS POSSIBLE TO OBTAIN RELIABLE AND QUANTITATIVE INFORMATION ON VESTIBULAR FUNCTION USING A MOTORISED CHAIR, WITH THE SUBJECT’S HEAD AND BODY FIXED. SUCH TESTING OF THE VOR HAS ENTAILED LOW-FREQUENCY ROTATION […]


The head-trunk coordination in whiplash injuries

Whiplash injuries induce abnormalities in head-trunk control due both direct impact on the neck and indirect involvement of the central vestibular system. It is usually difficult to document specific abnormalities due to whiplash injuries. We stated that examinations aimed to document head-trunk coordination involvement could be useful in the functional assessment of vestibular disorders in […]
