Quantitative Equilibrium Test and Complementary Studies in Patients with Vertigo
Journal of Neurology & Stroke
Vestibular stimulus provoked from the head is transmitted through the vestibular nerve to the vestibular homo-lateral cell and directly to the brain. At this level the synapse is the origin of the vestibular-spinal tract and the connection of the inferior vestibular nucleus to the cells of the anterior horn through the extension of the fascicular branch. The system of nystagmus generation or the central vestibular system begins in the peripheral nerve cell or the first neuron that is found in
... that is found in the ganglion. The central axon of the Escarpa ganglion extends to the nodular and flocular area to inform the brain. It is transported along the superior vestibular branch of nerve VIII, which connects the vestibular periphery of the utricle, the upper and lateral canal with the 4 vestibular nuclei and the cerebellum. Objective: The present study is motivated to investigate the vestibular function through vestibulospinal (CCG) and (TOB), retinoocular and vestibular (CNG) studies and cerebral vascular circulation through USD Doppler Ultrasonography in the patient With vertigo, in order to determine and better guide the vestibular diagnosis. Describing the results in groups of patients from Germany, Argentina and Mexico. Materials and Methods: We studied 1343 patients with vertigo, 860 women and 483 men. Mean age was 47.15 years for both, through vestibulospinal (CCG) and (TOB), retinoocular and vestibular studies (CNG) and vascular circulation Cerebral cortex through USD Doppler Ultrasonography in the Otologic Neurophysiology clinic of Mexico City, were studied and investigated under the parameters of Germany 10,335 and Argentina 2,234.
