The typical medicine constituting elderly people cause of a fall is the anxiolytic and hypnotic drugs of Benzodiazepines. The danger of the fall by the prolonged action type or the medicine with a strong line relaxation action is suggested especially. Moreover, anti-depressant drugs and anti-hypertensive drugs with alpha-adrenaline interception action also causes orthostatic hypotention, and induces a fall. In elderly, there are many complications and there is a tendency for combined use medicine to increase in number...

Effects of L-threo-Dops (Dops) administration on orthostatic hypotention were evaluated with changes in blood pressure by postural change (lying to standing position) and subjective symptoms in 15 patients of Parkinson's disease having symptoms of orthostatic hypotention. Orthostatic syncope had improved significantly (p < 0.01) after 2 and 4 weeks of administration with maintenance dose of 460 mg/day of Dops in average. In the standing-up (Schellong) test, decrease in blood pressure levels by a postural change, both with systolic and diastolic blood pressure, was significantly smaller at 3, 5 and 10 minutes after standing after 4 weeks of drug administration...

threo-Dihydroxyphenylserine (DOPS) is a synthetic amino acid which can be decarboxylated by L-aromatic amino acid decarboxylase to yield natural form of norepinephrine (l-NE), a principal neurotransmitter in both central and peripheral (sympathetic) nervous systems. Like L-Dopa as an agent for dopamine precursor therapy, DOPS was expected to have a potential as an agent for NE precursor therapy. Previous studies carried out by several groups in early 1970s, however, reached a negative conclusion that threo-DOPS was not an effective precursor of NE in the brain because of its low NE-increasing activity and weak pharmacological action...

Low spinal fluid pressure syndrome is characterized by orthostatic headache aggravated in upright position. It is classified into two from etiological standpoint i.e. primary and secondary (most often seen after lumbar puncture). On the other hand, low spinal fluid pressure is one of the promoting factors of chronic subdural hematoma. We report 2 cases of primary low spinal fluid pressure syndrome (primary intracranial hypotension) associated with chronic subdural hematoma. Case 1 is a 47-year-old man who was admitted with disorientation following 2 week history of orthostatic headache...

159 patients with a previous discharge diagnosis of recurrent vasodepressor syncope associated with prolonged standing or other circumstance known to trigger the condition were examined in order to isolate the orthostatic form. 72 patients with a history of at least two episodes of loss of consciousness after standing still for at least 10' were selected for testing by head-up tilt. Those who showed signs or symptoms during the test were tested a further twice, the third time after atropine administration. This process resulted in the diagnosis of orthostatic vasodepressor syncope in 28 patients who presented both 1) a positive test associated with hypotension and bradycardia and 2) bradycardia-free hypotention on repetition of the test with atropine...

T. I., a male aged 38, had a hereditary primary amyloidosis over four generation in his family history. He had peripheral neuropathy with dissociated sensory disturbances in the lower limbs, impotence, gastrointerstial dysfunction and orthostatic hypotention. N. suralis and M. quadriceps femoralis taken from him were examined by light and electron microscopy. N. suralis contained a lot of amyloids reacting with congo-red in the nerve fibres. Amyloid fibrils were remarkably observed around the blood vessels...
