Crespo, Agrício N.;Wolf, Aline E.;Kimaid, Paulo A.;Quagliato, Elizabeth;Viana, Maura;
Revista Brasileira de Otorrinolaringologia , 2002, DOI: 10.1590/S0034-72992002000300012
Abstract: introdu??o : electromyography (emg) is a technique developed and used in neurology for diagnosis and prognostic definition of neuromuscular diseases. study design: clinical prospective. material and method: thirty (30) patients with vocal fold immobility have been grouped according to the diagnostic hypothesis clinically established. results: emgl diagnosed peripherical neuropathic injury, central neuropathic injury or fixation of the cricoarterytenoideous in all patients who presented vocal fold immobility with no defined cause. in those patients carrying vocal fold immobility on account of mechanical traumatic cause, clinically so defined, emgl confirmed peripheral neuropathic injury in 70% of the cases and for the remaining 30% of the cases, it determined other causes such as peripheral neuropathic of compression, myopia and fixation of the cricoarterytenoideous. conclusion: emgl confirmed a chronic neuropathic injury in those patients carrying vocal fold immobility by virtue of compression caused by a possible clinically defined tumor.

Abstract: Introdu o: A eletromiografia (EMG) é utilizada para diagnóstico e prognóstico de doen as neuromusculares. Objetivo: avaliar a contribui o da EMG no diagnóstico da imobilidade de prega vocal. Forma de estudo: Clínico prospectivo. Material e Método: Para avalia o da contribui o diagnóstica trinta pacientes com imobilidade de prega vocal foram divididos em três grupos de acordo com a hipótese diagnóstica firmada clinicamente e submetidos a exame eletromiográfico de laringe. Resultados: A EMGL diagnosticou les o neuropática periférica, les o neuropática central ou fixa o cricoarinetóidea em todos os casos de prega vocal imóvel sem causa definida. Nos casos de prega vocal imóvel por trauma mecanico definido clinicamente, a EMGL confirmou les o neuropática periférica em 70% dos casos, e determinou outra causa em 30% (neuropatia por compress o, miopatia e fixa o cricoaritenóidea). Nos pacientes com prega vocal imóvel por possível compress o tumoral definida clinicamente, a EMGL confirmou les o neuropática cr nica. Conclus o: A EMGL contribui para a precis o do diagnóstico da imobilidade de prega vocal.

Abstract: This study describes preliminary laryngeal electromyography (LEMG) data and botulinum toxin treatment in patients with dysphonia due to movement disorders. Twenty-five patients who had been clinically selected for botulinum toxin administration were examined, 19 with suspected laryngeal dystonia or spasmodic dysphonia (SD), 5 with vocal tremor, and 1 with Gilles de la Tourette syndrome (GTS). LEMG evaluations were performed before botulinum toxin administration using monopolar electrodes. Electromyography was consistent with dystonia in 14 patients and normal in 5, and differences in frequency suggesting essential tremor in 3 and Parkinson tremors in 2. The different LEMG patterns and significant improvement in our patients from botulinum toxin therapy has led us to perform laryngeal electromyography as a routine in UNICAMP movement disorders ambulatory.

Abstract: pain may precede the diagnosis in parkinson's disease (pd). the goal of this study was to assess the pain in a group of 20 females and 30 males with pd, after excluding co-morbidities as causes. it was used the following tools: unified parkinson's disease rating scale, mcgill questionnaire and beck depression inventory. in 27 patients (54%), the pain was associated with pd, occurring in 22 (44%) in the off period and 5 (10%) in both on and off periods. the off period resulted in an increased frequency of pain, which was related to stiffness. there was no association between pain and tremor in off period, neither between pain and modified hoehn and yahr stage, nor the schwab and england scale. it was not observed an association between pain and depression, neither between pain and dyskinesia. it was noticed the improvement in pain in 16 patients with levodopa (59.26%).
Torcicolo espasmódico e meningeoma frontal

Abstract: a 57 year-old man developed a spasmodic torticollis with involuntary deviation of the head to the right-side. he had a left paramedian frontal meningioma. the association of spasmodic torticollis and other movement disorders has been reported with contralateral lesions in the basal ganglia. its occurrence in association to a frontal lesion appears to be much less frequent suggesting a possible disorder of frontostriatal connections.

Abstract: purpose: to standardize recordings of pattern electroretinograms (perg) in normal human subjects. methods: the standardization followed the model proposed by the international organization of eletroretinography and was specific for the laboratory of evoked potentials of the department of neurology, faculty of medical sciences, state university of campinas. two types of stimuli were used, one of 30 minutes of arch of visual angle and another of 60 minutes of arch of visual angle. results: in all patients a positive wave, defined internationally as p50, and a negative, called n95, were obtained without interferences. the normal range for latency, amplitude and duration of each wave was obtained. there were significative differences in amplitude, latency and duration of p50 and n95 waves among the several age groups. there was an increase in latency and a decrease in amplitude with increasing age. no significative differences were found among the variables comparing different stimuli, sex or when eyes were compared with each other. conclusions: the standardization of pattern electroretinograms yield reproductibility of results and the possibility of further comparative studies.

Abstract: OBJETIVO: Realizar a normatiza o do eletrorretinograma por revers o alternada em indivíduos oftalmologicamente normais e sem doen as neurológicas associadas, determinando a faixa de normalidade estratificada por sexo, faixa etária e estímulo utilizado. MéTODOS: A padroniza o seguiu o modelo proposto pela Organiza o Internacional de Eletrorretinografia e a normatiza o foi específica para o laboratório de potenciais evocados do Departamento de Neurologia da Faculdade de Ciências Médicas - Universidade Estadual de Campinas. Dois tipos de estímulos foram utilizados: o denominado estímulo 16, que proporciona angulo visual de 60 minutos de arco e o de 32, que proporciona angulo visual de 30. RESULTADOS: Em todos os pacientes obteve-se uma onda positiva, definida internacionalmente como P50 e uma negativa, chamada N95, sem a presen a de artefatos. Foram observados intervalos de normalidade que continham a média das latências, amplitudes e dura es das curvas positiva e negativa, internacionalmente aceitas. As ondas P50 e N95 apresentaram diferen as significativas na amplitude, latência e dura o quando comparadas às diversas faixas etárias, ocorrendo diminui o na amplitude das ondas e aumento na latência total do eletrorretinograma com o aumento da idade. Construíram-se tabelas com intervalo de predi o de 95% em rela o à idade para a amplitude, latência e dura o das curvas P50 e N95. CONCLUS ES: A normatiza o do eletrorretinograma por revers o alternada proporciona a reprodutibilidade dos resultados e a possibilidade de estudos comparativos.

Abstract: given the suspected role of mycobacteria in the establishment of disorders with an autoimmune background and joint damage, a study was conducted to analize whether rheumatic symptoms were likely to be present in tuberculosis (tb) patients. to this end, 330 patients with a bacteriologic confirmation of tuberculosis were investigated for the presence of arthritic complaints. the latter were recorded in five of them with rheumatic symptoms mostly involving interphalangeal and metacarpophalanged joints, and preceding the clinical manifestations of the tb illness. three out of these five patients remained arthritic by the time of the bacteriologic conversion and fulfilled the criteria for the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis. in the two remaining patients sputum negativization was accompanied by a disappearance of rheumatic manifestations. these patients were also assessed for their peripheral levels of major t cell subsets as well as for the presence of autoantibodies. comparisons with a series of non-arthritic tb cases, rheumatoid arthritis patients, and controls revealed that presence of rheumatic manifestations was associated with a different profile of autoantibody formation and t cell subset changes. evidence recorded in the present study indicates that joint affectation in tb is a rare event, being rather the exception than the rule.
