  • The memory loss associated with bilateral and nondominant unilateral ECT was assessed with verbal memory tests known to be sensitive to left temporal lobe dysfunction. (
  • Nonverbal memory was affected less by right unilateral ECT than by bilateral ECT. (
  • These findings, taken together with a consideration of the clinical efficacy of the two types of treatment, make what appears to be a conclusive case for unilateral over bilateral ECT. (
  • It has been generally accepted that right unilateral ECT is a clinically effective treatment that produces less impairment of new learning capacity and less amnesia for remote events than bilateral ECT (7,13). (
  • Accordingly, if memory were assessed with nonverbal tests specifically sensitive to right temporal lobe dysfunction, the amnesic effect of right unilateral ECT might prove to be as great as or even greater than that of bilateral ECT. (
  • Only two studies have addressed this issue directly, employing verbal and nonverbal memory tests with patients receiving bilateral or right unilateral ECT. (
  • In the first study (15) impairment in one nonverbal test was somewhat greater after bilateral ECT than after unilateral ECT, but this difference was not statistically significant. (
  • Impairment in a nonverbal test was greater in the unilateral group after 4 treatments, but greater in the bilateral group 3 months after treatment. (
  • The present study investigated memory functions in patients receiving bilateral or right unilateral ECT. (
  • The choice of bilateral or unilateral ECT depended on the preferences of the individual psychiatrists and was therefore not random. (
  • However, since the patients about to receive bilateral or unilateral treatment did not differ measurably on their memory test scores before ECT (figure 1), it seems reasonable to assume that group differences emerging after ECT can be attributed to the type of ECT administered. (
  • Sixty-two patients underwent MIS-TLIF with unilateral long decompression incision (group A) and 67 patients underwent MIS-TLIF with bilateral short decompression incision (group B). Demographics and peri-operative clinical data were collected from medical records. (
  • In two-level degenerative lumbar diseases, based on the bilateral decompression via unilateral approach technique, MIS-TLIF with bilateral short decompression incision could significantly reduce radiation exposure, shorten operative time, decrease blood loss, and achieve comparable clinical outcomes when compared to unilateral long decompression incision. (
  • Hearing loss is in one ear (unilateral) or both ears (bilateral). (
  • Some people begin by having bilateral hypofunction while others develop bilateral issues from unilateral problems. (
  • Distribution of symptoms - unilateral or bilateral. (
  • Today, most people who have a bilateral hearing loss therefore use two hearing aids. (
  • Furthermore, a hearing impairment may exist in only one ear (unilateral) or in both ears (bilateral). (
  • This retrospective study includes a group of 478 neurosurgical patients with unilateral sporadic VS evaluated preoperatively regarding the occurrence of ipsilateral tinnitus depending on different clinical factors, i.e., age, gender, tumor side, tumor size (T1-T4 according to the Hannover classification), and hearing impairment (Gardner-Robertson classification, GR1-5), using a binary logistic regression. (
  • For the first time, these findings indicate a non-linear relationship between hearing impairment and tinnitus in unilateral sporadic VS. Our results suggest a similar pathophysiology in VS-associated and non-VS tinnitus. (

  • Unilateral profound sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL), also known as single-sided deafness (SSD), is generally characterized as a profound SNHL in one ear, with normal hearing thresholds in the opposite ear. (
  • If you have profound unilateral hearing loss, or single-sided deafness, it can be difficult to live with. (
  • There are, however, several risks inherent in unilateral DNAR orders, such as overestimating one's ability to prognosticate or giving undue weight to the physician's values over those of parents, particularly with regard to predicted disability and quality of life. (
  • We discuss the key features of a new global Intellectual Property (IP) regime that builds on the positive spillovers inherent in unilateral initiatives and accelerates global convergence to low emissions. (
  • With speech and background noise presented at the same level, persons with unilateral deafness were found to listen only about 30-35% of the conversation. (

  • In unilateral vocal fold paralysis the major problem is usually the inability of one vocal fold to move completely to the midline during speech and swallowing. (
  • Unilateral vocal fold paralysis (UVFP) occurs from a dysfunction of the recurrent laryngeal or vagus nerve innervating the larynx. (
  • Unilateral vocal fold paralysis (UVFP) most commonly occurs following a surgical iatrogenic injury to the vagus or recurrent laryngeal nerve. (
  • Unilateral vocal fold paralysis (UVFP) results in glottal incompetence, either partial or complete, resulting in a weak or absent vocal fold vibration that leads to dysphonia . (
  • When a clear-cut etiology for the unilateral vocal fold paralysis (UVFP) is not found, it is classified as idiopathic. (
  • For a headache to be classified as a rue cluster headache , the person will have symptoms like tearing/watering of the eye, redness of the conjunctiva , rhinorrhea or nasal stuffiness, eyelid drooping, sweating on one side of the face, or changes in pupil size (with the pupil on the affected side becoming notably smaller). (
  • In this type of migraine, a person may develop neurological symptoms, including weakness on one side of the body. (
  • However, there are some people who have symptoms of memory loss and attention difficulties that persist for weeks or months. (
  • To characterise the clinical features of non-familial migraine with unilateral motor symptoms (MUMS) and compare these features with those of migraine without weakness. (
  • We postulated that unilateral motor symptoms are common in patients with migraine in a tertiary care centre, and that their presence may be due to the activation of sensorimotor programme related to the pain and presence of allodynia. (
  • The list also includes a bunch of people better known for harshly criticizing Trump, in some cases unambiguously pronouncing him unfit for the presidency. (
  • Trump is] the most vulgar person ever to aspire to the presidency….I believe Donald Trump as our nominee is going to shatter and fracture the Republican Party and the conservative movement. (
  • Weakness was ipsilateral to unilateral headache in two thirds of the patients. (
  • Outpatients who had a diagnosis of either episodic migraine or chronic migraine and self-reported unilateral weakness accompanying their headaches and were seen at the Jefferson Headache Center (Philadelphia, Pennnsylvania, USA) from June to September 2004 were enrolled. (
  • Early reports demonstrated that cochlear implantation for unilateral sensorineural hearing loss can restore some binaural benefits for speech perception and localization. (
  • Thus, in stroke patients unilateral lesions of the striatum did not significantly impair the general ability to control response interference, but led to less efficient selective inhibition of interfering responses. (
  • That study was further complicated by the fact that one-third of the patients given unilateral treatment did not have a grand mal seizure. (
  • Finally, since it was not clear how patients with identified right unilateral lesions would perform on the nonverbal tests used in these two studies, it was difficult to be sure how specifically sensitive the tests were to right hemispheric dysfunction. (
  • Group 2 consisted of 21 patients who had been prescribed right unilateral ECT. (
  • As discussed in this special issue, people with UHL are a group that is generally underserved, and patients with UHL have historically had limited options. (
