The antiepileptic effects of carbamazepine and phenytoin were compared in a double-blind crossover trial studying patients with primary and secondary generalized seizures and partial seizures with motor symptoms. Each treatment period lasted ten weeks. The patients were seen every two weeks, and doses were adjusted according to plasma levels. It was(More)
The anti-epileptic effect of gamma-vinyl-GABA (GVG) was studied using a placebo-controlled, single-blind design in 15 patients with therapy-resistant epilepsy, the majority experiencing complex partial seizures. GVG was added to concomitant treatment, which was kept at constant serum levels. Following administration of 1 g, 2 g and 3 g per day, significant(More)
Two patients with classical rheumatoid arthritis developed myopathy during treatment with penicillamine. In both patients, electromyography and muscle biopsies were indicative of polymyositis. In one patient, muscle enzymes were not examined at the appropriate time; in the other patient muscle enzymes were raised. This latter patient also had a rash and, in(More)

The following case example shows the difficulty dentists face when their alcohol or drug dependence causes them to violate laws or the Dental Practice Act. In this case, the dentist is charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI) and is in possession of inappropriately prescribed medications.
Phytophthora capsici causes significant damage to vegetable production in Mexico, but very little is known about the population structure or how populations survive and spread. The objective of the present study was to evaluate the genetic diversity of P. capsici isolates recovered from 1998–2014 in central and northern Mexico. Isolates (n = 81) were(More)
The aim of the preoperative neurophysiological investigations is to identify the primary epileptogenic focus and its relation to functional cortical areas. The investigations include interictal and ictal extracranial (scalp) electroencephalography (EEG) and invasive methods (depth, subdural, foramen ovale electrodes and peroperative electrocorticography).(More)
Five patients with peripheral nerve injury after axillary arteriography are presented. The clinical and electromyographic pictures of this complication are described. In 4 patients the brachial plexus was damaged due to haematoma or pseudoaneurysm-formation at the site of the arterial puncture. The grave prognosis for this complication is illustrated on the(More)
In a double blind prospective study of side effects to cervical myelography 38 patients were evaluated with neurologic examination, electroencephalography (EEG), brainstem evoked response (BER), somatosensory evoked responses (SSER), and continuous reaction times prior to and at 6 h and 24 h after myelography with either metrizamide or iohexol. A difference(More)
