Clinical Trials [824 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Simultaneous Recordings of Cervical and Ocular Vestibular-evoked Myogenic Potentials

To lower the threshold for clinical application by reducing the testing time for recording vestibular-evoked myogenic potentials (VEMPs), we evaluated whether a simultaneous recording of o...

Test-Retest Reliability of oVEMP's Across Different Electrode Montages

"Test-Retest Reliability of ocular vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (oVEMPs) across different electrode montages." The purpose of this project is to compare the response characterist...

Vestibular System in Migrainous Vertigo Patients

Do migrainous vertigo patients have more pathology in their vestibular system than migraine patients without vertigo? The aim of this study is to compare the vestibular system of migraine...

The Effects of Dexmedetomidine Dose on Motor Evoked Potentials

This a parallel group, two-arm, randomized superiority trial that will compare the effect of two different doses of dexmedetomidine on motor evoked potentials during spine surgery

OVEMP in Myasthenia

Myasthenia gravis is an autoimmune disorder of neuromuscular transmission, characterized by fluctuating muscle weakness and fatigability. In isolated ocular myasthenia, when only the extra...

PubMed Articles [10862 Associated PubMed Articles listed on BioPortfolio]

Clinical Evaluation of the Vestibular Nerve Using Vestibular Evoked Myogenic Potentials.

Vestibular evoked myogenic potentials are currently the most clinically accessible method to evaluate the otolith reflex pathways. These responses provide unique information regarding the status of th...

Does blindness affect ocular vestibular evoked myogenic potentials?

The aim of the present study was to investigate the influence of blindness on ocular vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (oVEMP) responses.

Evaluation of Cervical Vestibular Evoked Myogenic Potential in Subjects with Chronic Noise Exposure.

Noise has been recognized as a major cause of cochlear damage resulting in both tinnitus and hearing loss. On the other hand, damage to the vestibular system, especially the saccule, can be considered...

Air-conducted and skull-tap cervical vestibular evoked myogenic potentials in determining nerve division involvement in vestibular schwannoma patients.

Air-conducted and skull-tap cervical vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (AC-cVEMP and Tap-cVEMP) have been shown to be very promising tools in clinical practice. They are noninvasive, easy to obtai...

Ocular Vestibular Evoked Myogenic Potentials: Where Are We Now?

Over the last decade, ocular vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (oVEMPs) have evolved as a new clinical test for dynamic otolith (predominantly utricular) function. The aim of this review is to giv...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The recorded electrical responses from nerve, muscle, SENSORY RECEPTOR, or area of the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM following stimulation. They range from less than a microvolt to several microvolts. The evoked potential can be auditory (EVOKED POTENTIALS, AUDITORY), somatosensory (EVOKED POTENTIALS, SOMATOSENSORY), visual (EVOKED POTENTIALS, VISUAL), or motor (EVOKED POTENTIALS, MOTOR), or other modalities that have been reported. Often used synonymously to event-related potentials which are associated with higher level cognitive processes.

Recorded electrical responses from muscles, especially the neck muscles or muscles around the eyes, following stimulation of the EAR VESTIBULE.

The electrical response evoked in a muscle or motor nerve by electrical or magnetic stimulation. Common methods of stimulation are by transcranial electrical and TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION. It is often used for monitoring during neurosurgery.

Somatosensory evoked potentials generated through the application of HEAT to the SKIN with a LASER. They are often used clinically to assess the function of the central nociceptive system and in diagnosing NOCICEPTIVE PAIN.

The electric response evoked in the CEREBRAL CORTEX by stimulation along AFFERENT PATHWAYS from PERIPHERAL NERVES to CEREBRUM.
