Vertigo in children

The aim of the study was to search for the reason of vertigo in children who complain of it. 30 children who were treated by pediatrist beacuse of various diseases were tested. The detailed protocol of anamnesis, videonystagmography, posturography and additonal tests ordered by pediatrist were performed. The results were compared with the group of […]

Saccadic and smooth pursuit eye movement

The origin of the generation of saccadic and smooth pursuit eye movements has not been proved. The goal of the study was to search for the connection of the visual- oculomotor reactions: saccades and eye-tracking test with cerebellar damage. 11 patients treated with aminoglicosides, because of pneumonia, were tested using electronystagmography (ENG). After 21 (mean) […]

Panic disorder in otoneurogical expertise

The evaluation of cochleovestibular dysfunction in psychiatric patients often causes difficult problem in neurootological expertise. The most difficult challenge is the combined lesion: psychiatric disorders with organic cochleovestibular diseases. Authors discuss the neurobiological base of panic disorders and the cochleovestibular dysfunction. Authors of the multicentric study examined 63 patients with vertigo and panic disease. Twenty […]

Studying the perceptions of movement and movement speed of objects in adolescent drivers

This work aims to study in adolescent drivers whose vestibulo-visual-auditory functions are exposed to the systematic effect of specific mechanical irritants (accelerations, velocities, noise, vibrations, optokinetic effects, etc.), the particularities of the functioning of the higher specialized sensuousness and in particular the vestibular effect on the visual system at formation of the perceptions of movement […]

Psychological aspects in tinnitus patients

Objective: To investigate psychological aspects in tinnitus patients with normal vestibular examination. Method: 39 patients reporting tinnitus as their primary complaint and vertigo as secondary, underwent neurootological and psychological examination and were compared with a control group. Results: Tinnitus patients showed representative stereotyped and conventional thought processes, and tendency to defense against feelings of instability. […]

Paroxysmal positional vertigo and rehabilitation

Paroxysmal positional vertigo is one of the most frequent vestibular affections. Despite the success of the rehabilitative therapy PPV is often recurrent suggesting that we are not really able to interact with the etiology and even with all the possible pathogenetic mechanisms. In this work we present an interpretative model according to the cybernetic theory […]

Neural response telemetry – a clinical tool for programming speech processors in children with cochlear implant

Programming of the speech-processors in children provided with Cochlear Implant causes sometimes problems, especially in very small children. This becomes important at this time as the implantation-age of the children decreases continuously. With Neural Response Telemetry (NRT) stands for the Nucleus ® 24 Cochlear Implant system a new principle of programming of the speech processor […]

The mcs (mechanic, cybernetics and synergetics) method in vestibular rehabilitation

Vertigo and dizziness are conscious symptoms and the disturbances are not disequilibrium or nystagmus but the consciousness of disequilibrium and nystagmus. Thus physical rehabilitation must not only be pointed to resolution of objective disorder but it must be aimed to resolution of subjective consciousness of the disorder itself. MCS is the achronimus of mechanic , […]

Vestibular rehabilitation in whiplash injuries

Whiplash injury can be defined as a non-contact rapid acceleration-deceleration head-neck trauma during which the kinematics of the cervical spine are completely disrupted. Because of the impact a sudden violent head retro-flexion is followed by an as much as violent head antero-flexion. The therapy influenced Tonic muscles by increasing labyrinthine percentage and induced a reduction […]

Sound influence on vestibulo-spinal control

It has been known for a long time that the application of intense acoustic stimuli to the ear can induce reflex muscle responses. The classic physiology describes reflex responses of neck muscles aimed at turning the head towards the source of acoustic stimuli. It is well known Tullio phenomenon (1929) which is a rare but […]
