produced only mild to moderate analgesia. Both ketamine and bupivacaine prolonged the duration of analgesia. Motor incoordination was mild to moderate in animals of all the groups, but animals remained standing throughout the period of observation. Animals of groups A, D and E showed mild to moderate sedation during the observation period. Ruminal movements decreased nonsignificantly in animals of groups A and E. Mild salivation was observed in animals of all the groups except group C. Significant (...) and 2.0 mg/kg), and in group E medetomidine and bupivacaine (15 microg/kg and 0.125 mg/kg) was administered epidurally. Onset of analgesia was significantly earlier in animals of groups B and D compared to the animals of groups A, C and E. Medetomidine alone or in combination with ketamine/bupivacaine produced complete analgesia of the tail, perineum, inguinal region and upper parts of hind limbs. Ketamine produced a very short duration of complete analgesia at the tail and perineum. Bupivacaine alone

Although short-term benefit may be due to MC excitability enhancement, the mechanism of cumulative benefit must have another explanation.(c) 2005 Movement Disorder Society. (...) Placebo-controlled study of rTMS for the treatment of Parkinson's disease. The objective of this study is to assess the safety and efficacy of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) for gait and bradykinesia in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). In a double-blind placebo-controlled study, we evaluated the effects of 25 Hz rTMS in 18 PD patients. Eight rTMS sessions were performed over a 4-week period.

) or intramuscular (IM) injection. Anaesthesia was supplemented with 1.5-2% isoflurane when signs of regular jaw movements and/or slight limb twitching indicated inadequate anaesthesia. Heart and respiratory rate, blood oxygen saturation, end-tidal carbon dioxide concentration and rectal temperature were monitored at several time points. Duration of surgical anaesthesia and anaesthesia time were measured. At completion of surgery, atipamezole (1.0 or 0.5 mg kg(-1), IM or SC) was administered.MANOVA was used (...) ) but was more rapid in animals given IM atipamezole (13.6 +/- 13 versus 21 +/- 17, p = 0.037). No anaesthetic-related mortality occurred and all but three animals recovered uneventfully. Five animals were killed whilst under anaesthesia because of unrelated disease.Ketamine-medetomidine combinations reliably produced surgical anaesthesia in domestic rabbits that could easily be deepened for brief periods with low concentrations of isoflurane. Subcutaneous administration was better tolerated, but the speed

2951. Deep brain stimulation for the treatment of Parkinson's disease: overview and impact on gait and mobility. (Abstract)

Deep brain stimulation for the treatment of Parkinson's disease: overview and impact on gait and mobility. Abnormality in gait is a cardinal feature of Parkinson's disease. Walking is characterized by relatively preserved sequencing of trunk and limb movements, but diminished velocity, shortened stride length, increased base, and diminished double stance support time. The principle problem producing the gait abnormalities is dopamine deficiency, which is hypothesized to disrupt pallido-thalamic (...) to a similar extent. Functional and quantitative gait analyses confirm sustained improvement in gait dynamics with bilateral stimulation for periods for more than several years. Parkinsonian gait is also improved with rehabilitation training, primarily using external visual or auditory cues. The combination of deep brain stimulation, pharmacotherapy, and rehabilitation training may result in more effective comprehensive approaches to the reduced mobility associated with Parkinson's disease.

), was established for in vivo imaging of arteriogenesis in mice and compared with LDPI.Using the accepted model of ligation of the left femoral artery of 45 C57BL6 mice, we determined arteriogenesis both by LDPI and ICGA, which were applied before and periodically after ligation of the left femoral artery (each group n = 7). Collateral artery growth within the hind limb was additionally verified by histologic workup.Determination of flow by ICGA, as represented by maximal pixel intensity (ratio of left/right (...) increase in the number of collaterals. The intraindividual ratio increased from 1.0 +/- 0.05 before ligation to 1.35 +/- 0.10 at 2 weeks and 1.41 +/- 0.08 at 3 weeks after ligation (P < .05).Our data demonstrate that ICGA represents a potent tool for the quantification of collateral flow in small animal models. The current standard of LDPI seems to rather represent blood movements within the superficial skin but not of the entire hind limb.

All other survivors had healing by secondary intention without disability. The period for complete epithelization varied between 3 and 8 weeks. Patients were discharged home when 70% of the wound had healed. There was extensive scarring in 3 children with NF involving the back. The other children had minimal or no scarring. None of the patients had any restriction in the movement (...) of limbs or joints. These findings were compared with 16 retrospective patients of NF treated before January 2000 by the conventional approach of aggressive early debridement, the results of the conservative approach were superior with shorter hospital stay, lower number of blood transfusions, earlier appearance of granulation tissue, and shorter duration of complete healing.We conclude that the conservative management of NF offers advantages in morbidity without compromising the outcome.

2960. Headache and sleep disorders: review and clinical implications for headache management. (Abstract)

limb movement disorder, circadian rhythm disorder, insomnia, and hypersomnia. Headache, particularly morning headache and chronic headache, may be consequent to, or aggravated by, a sleep disorder, and management of the sleep disorder may improve or resolve the headache. Sleep-disordered breathing is the best example of this relationship. Insomnia is the sleep disorder most often cited by clinical headache populations. Depression and anxiety are comorbid with both headache and sleep disorders (...) Headache and sleep disorders: review and clinical implications for headache management. Review of epidemiological and clinical studies suggests that sleep disorders are disproportionately observed in specific headache diagnoses (eg, migraine, tension-type, cluster) and other nonspecific headache patterns (ie, chronic daily headache, "awakening" or morning headache). Interestingly, the sleep disorders associated with headache are of varied types, including obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), periodic
