The clinical use of amplitude-integrated electroencephalography in the diagnosis of seizures in high-risk newborn infants with suspected central nervous system insult is evaluated with emphasis on silent seizures. Recordings from 93 infants with suspected central nervous system insults over a period of 7 years were retrospectively analyzed for the presence(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the effect of extra uterine life on continuity and amplitude of premature infants' cerebral activity at different gestational age as compared to soon after birth. METHODS Stable infants less than 34weeks gestation were prospectively recruited and EEG was recorded bi-weekly. Interburst interval and different wavelength amplitudes were(More)
Tubal patency was investigated by hysterosalpingography in 21 of 37 patients with unruptured tubal pregnancy treated by local methotrexate injection at laparoscopy. 18 of the 21 patients had bilateral tubal patency, and the only tube of a patient with a single fallopian tube was also patent. 6 subsequent intrauterine pregnancies have so far been recorded.(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare amplitude-integrated EEG (aEEG) and conventional EEG (EEG) activity in premature neonates. METHODS Biweekly aEEG and EEG were simultaneously recorded in a cohort of infants born less than 34 weeks gestation. aEEG recordings were visually assessed for lower and upper border amplitude and bandwidth. EEG recordings were compressed for(More)
Amplitude-integrated electroencephalography monitors different aspects of cerebral function in neonatal intensive care units. To examine the influence of various antiepileptic drugs on the background patterns and voltage of amplitude-integrated electroencephalography recordings, we screened 191 tracing segments originating from 77 newborns treated with(More)
The analgesic properties and motor effect of epidural 0.25% bupivacaine (8 mL) were compared with those of epidural morphine (2 mg in 10 mL saline) followed by 8 mL of 0.25% bupivacaine. The study was performed on two groups of parturients (30 in each group) in active labor. Pain relief in the morphine-bupivacaine group lasted for a mean of 131.1 minutes(More)
