- Isolated Basilar Artery Dissection with Ischemic Stroke: Report of 4 Cases. [Journal Article]
- ANActa Neurol Taiwan 2017 Sep 15; 26(3):138-143
- CONCLUSIONS: Isolated BAD may cause variable clinical manifestations and the outcome can be favorable. Application of different and advanced imaging studies with serial image follow-up are useful to confirm the diagnosis.

This paper discusses otorhinolaryngological symptoms associated with functional disorders of the upper cervical spine. Hints aimed to avoid misdiagnoses of cross-organ otorhinolaryngological symptoms as phobic or psychogenic disorders are presented. Clinically relevant neuroanatomical convergence of the upper cervical spine (occiput to C3) is fundamental for the interpretation of functional otorhinolaryngological symptoms. Based thereon, evidence for the most common cervical differential diagnoses of dizziness, tinnitus, dysphagia, and craniomandibular dysfunction is presented separately. The corresponding therapeutic options and their contraindications are discussed in the concluding chapter. The importance of interdisciplinary cooperation in related fields is emphasized.
- Gait analysis in PSP and NPH: Dual-task conditions make the difference. [Journal Article]
- NeurNeurology 2018 Feb 21
- CONCLUSIONS: Patients with PSP seem to be more sensitive to dual-task perturbations than patients with iNPH. An increased step width and anisotropy of the effect of dual-task conditions (cognitive vs motor) seem to be good diagnostic tools for iNPH.
- Management of Recurrent Vestibular Neuritis in a Patient Treated for Rheumatoid Arthritis. [Journal Article]
- AJAm J Audiol 2018 Feb 19; :1-6
- CONCLUSIONS: Patients treated with biologic disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs are more susceptible to viral issues, and this may include vestibular neuritis. For the current case, identifying this possibility and recommending viral suppressant medication allowed her to continue with successful treatment of rheumatoid arthritis while avoiding additional vertigo events.

Chemotherapy in childhood can result in long-term neurophysiological side-effects, which could extend to visual processing, specifically the degree to which a person relies on vision to determine vertical and horizontal (visual dependency). We investigated whether adults treated with chemotherapy in childhood experience elevated visual dependency compared to controls and whether any difference is associated with the age at which subjects were treated. Visual dependency was measured in 23 subjects (mean age 25.3 years) treated in childhood with chemotherapy (CTS) for malignant, solid, non-CNS tumors. We also stratified CTS into two groups: those treated before 12 years of age and those treated from 12 years of age and older. Results were compared to 25 healthy, age-matched controls. The subjective visual horizontal (SVH) and vertical (SVV) orientations was recorded by having subjects position an illuminated rod to their perceived horizontal and vertical with and without a surrounding frame tilted clockwise and counter-clockwise 20° from vertical. There was no significant difference in rod accuracy between any CTS groups and controls without a frame. However, when assessing visual dependency using a frame, CTS in general (p = 0.006) and especially CTS treated before 12 years of age (p = 0.001) tilted the rod significantly further in the direction of the frame compared to controls. Our findings suggest that chemotherapy treatment before 12 years of age is associated with elevated visual dependency compared to controls, implying a visual bias during spatial activities. Clinicians should be aware of symptoms such as visual vertigo in adults treated with chemotherapy in childhood.
- [The diagnostic significance of vestibular evoked myogenic potentials in different types of vertigo]. [Journal Article]
- ZNZh Nevrol Psikhiatr Im S S Korsakova 2018; 118(1):13-17
- CONCLUSIONS: In patients with peripheral vertigo, central vertigo and unsteadiness, vestibular-spinal reflex was disturbed at different levels of vestibular analyzer.
- Vestibular Dysfunctions in Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis. [Journal Article]
- FNFront Neurol 2018; 9:45
- CONCLUSIONS: This study shows the relevance of vestibular damage concomitant with SSHL and that SSHL patients with vertigo are at an increased risk of vestibular organ lesions compared with patients without vertigo. LSC + S lesions thus appear to be a critical variable that influence the possibility of hearing improvement in SSHL.
- Prevalence, aetiologies and prognosis of the symptom dizziness in primary care - a systematic review. [Journal Article]
- BFBMC Fam Pract 2018 Feb 20; 19(1):33
- CONCLUSIONS: There is a broad variety of possible underlying diseases for the symptom dizziness. There exist only few methodologically sound studies concerning aetiology and prognosis of dizziness.
