Disease relevance of Electronystagmography

  • Fourteen patients with cervicogenic headache (9F, 5M) with a mean age of 42.8 (29-58) years were examined, before and within two hours after unilateral anaesthetic C2-blockades, clinically as well as by means of electronystagmography, subjective visual vertical test and posturography [1].
  • OBJECTIVES--To review the clinical features, electronystagmography findings, the possible mechanism, and a possible therapeutic approach to benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) [2].
  • However, a highly elevated titre of antibodies against the human acetylcholine receptor and a significant improvement in clinical symptoms during therapy with anticholinesterase drugs, combined with a decremental response in electronystagmography, indicated an intermittent mainly oculo-bulbar form of myasthenia gravis [3].
  • The effects of air, helium-oxygen (6.4 ATA), and ethyl alcohol (40% by volume at a dose of 1.5 ml/kg body weight) were examined on the gain, number of beats, and phase lag of the vestibular ocular reflex (VOR) by means of electronystagmography (n = 7) [4].

High impact information on Electronystagmography


Biological context of Electronystagmography

  • Eye movements were recorded with direct-current electronystagmography (DC-ENG) and a 12-bit analog to digital converter was used to collect analog data of horizontal and vertical eye position, and stimulus signals at a sampling rate of 200 Hz [10].

Anatomical context of Electronystagmography


Associations of Electronystagmography with chemical compounds

  • Standard caloric testing with electronystagmography was performed before and after the heliox dives [12].
  • In a series of studies, the phenomenon of head-shaking nystagmus (HSN) was assessed in 50 control subjects and 1364 consecutive dizzy patients who underwent formal electronystagmography (ENG) at the Toronto Hospital Center for Advanced Hearing and Balance Testing [13].
  • The amount of streptomycin administered (5 to 50 g) was determined by clinical symptoms and by serial testing of the reduction in the slow-phase velocity on electronystagmography [14].
  • Diazepam tolerance effects on vestibular function testing, Part I: Saccadic parameters during electronystagmography [15].
  • Balance disorders detected by means of this test showed high compatibility with results of electronystagmography which confirmed damage of the central part of vestibular system due to CS2 intoxication [16].
