    The subjective horizontal in eccentric rotation influenced by peripheral vestibular lesion1996In: Acta Oto-Laryngologica, ISSN 0001-6489, E-ISSN 1651-2251, Vol. 116, no 2, p. 181-184Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Peripheral vestibular equilibrium disorders may originate in various parts of the labyrinth or the vestibular nerve. Traditionally, the function of the lateral semicircular canals has been assessed with caloric irrigation, and sometimes falsely been interpreted as a vestibular nerve lesion. the vertical semicircular canals are not easily assessed. Caloric testing with the head in different positions is not very helpful, but the canals may pairwise be tested using specific rotational techniques. Often the otolithic organs, capable of detecting linear acceleration forces, are forgotten as a source of vertigo and dizziness. We have implemented horizontal rotatory testing with the subject seated eccentrically facing the direction of rotation as a means of assessing otolithic function. the subject experiences a lateral tilt and is instructed in darkness to put a short light bar in the position he thinks a water surface would have, which is identical to his perceived tilt. in 39 normal subjects, a theoretical tilt of 24° was estimated as approximately 19.5°, and the standard deviation was 6°. A side difference index was proposed to be normal if below 25%. the preliminary findings in a few patients with known labyrinthine lesions are presented. We propose that otolithic as well as lateral semicircular canal functions are useful to monitor in patients with suspected peripheral equilibrium disorders.

    Vestibulo-oculomotor disturbances in humans exposed to styrene1982In: Acta Oto-Laryngologica, ISSN 0001-6489, E-ISSN 1651-2251, Vol. 94, no 1-6, p. 487-493Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Several reports indicate that disturbances of the vestibulo-oculomotor ability are a manifestation of the toxic action on the central nervous system exerted by some industrial solvents. The aim of the present investigation was to examine the vestibulo-oculomotor system during exposure to styrene, which is extensively used in the production of plastics. Healthy volunteers were exposed to styrene for one hour. Rotatory and optokinetic nystagmus, visual suppression as well as speed, latency and accuracy of saccades were tested before, during, and one hour after the exposure. The pulmonary uptake and the blood level of the solvent were continuously analysed by gas chromatography. The styrene blood concentration was equivalent to that which may well be reached after several hours of hard work in an industrial environment with a concentration of styrene within permitted limits. No spontaneous nystagmus appeared. The rotatory and optokinetic nystagmus was not influenced by styrene. However, the speed of the saccade was significantly enhanced. The visual suppression was disturbed, shown by an increased gain after styrene exposure. The experiments thus indicate that styrene given to healthy test persons induced disturbances, thus consistent with the theory that some organic solvents block the cerebellar inhibition of the vestibulo-oculomotor system.
