OBJECTIVE The goal of the study described here was to evaluate interictal heart rate variability (HRV) in young patients with epilepsy, a patient population in whom sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP) is known to be more common. METHODS Twenty-four-hour ambulatory ECG Holter recordings of 37 patients (15-40 years old) and 32 healthy controls were(More)
The aim of this study was to elucidate the chronic effects of tobacco smoking on the P300, a neurophysiological index of cognitive function. Prospective study participants were recruited from a family medicine polyclinic. We selected 32 right-handed smokers who had smoked more than 15 cigarettes per day, by inhalation, for more than 2 years. The control(More)
Digital subtraction angiography (DSA) is the best method of evaluating carotid cavernous fistulas (CCF). DSA, however, has the disadvantage of being an invasive procedure. Computerized tomography (CT) angiography which is noninvasive, have been shown to provide more information about the size and location of fistulas. As a new method, Bone-Subtraction CT(More)
We aimed to investigate the effects of topiramate monotherapy on anthropometric indexes, insulin resistance, and serum leptin and lipid levels in 33 premenopausal women (mean age+/-standard deviation: 26.7+/-7.1years) with cryptogenic epilepsy. Body mass index (BMI), waist circumference and serum leptin, insulin and lipid levels were measured at baseline(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the cardiac repolarization indices in terms of QT intervals in patients with well-controlled partial epilepsy. METHODS Seventy-six adult patients with well-controlled partial epilepsy and 66 healthy controls were enrolled into the study. 12-Lead ECGs were obtained from all participants. Corrected QT (QTc) intervals including maximum(More)
