Medically refractory occipital lobe epilepsies are increasingly treated with surgery, but outcome and its relationship to etiology, pathological substrate, occipital lobe location, surgical approach, and electroclinical features have not been systematically investigated in a substantial group of patients. Thirty-five patients who underwent surgery for(More)
Even though stroke is known to be a common cause of status epilepticus (SE), the types of stroke or SE that may be associated are not yet clearly defined. The aims of this study were to assess the timing and type of SE in stroke patients and to observe the effects of stroke and the type of SE on the response to treatment and mortality. From May 1998 to May(More)
OBJECTIVE Glycine transporter-1 (GLYT1) is an early marker of neural development and involved in the excitatory transmission in cortex. The study was designed to investigate the expression of GLYT1 in different parts of the brain by immunohistochemistry in the rat cortical dysplasia model. METHODS On postnatal day 0, one freeze lesion was carried out on(More)
— The identi cation of epileptic seizures signi cantly relies on monitoring and visual analysis of large amounts of multichannel electroencephalographic (EEG) signals. With a goal of automating this time-consuming and subjective task, we develop a patient-speci c seizure recognition model for multi-channel scalp EEG signals. We differentiate between seizure(More)
Refractory status epilepticus (RSE) is known to constitute approximately 10-50% of all cases of status epilepticus (SE) and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. In the present study, data from a prospectively collected SE database were analyzed. Patients with RSE (defined as a SE episode requiring a second line of intravenous treatment(More)
We describe a syndrome of medically intractable occipitotemporal epilepsy of nontumoral developmental origin and its treatment by surgery. From our epilepsy surgery database of 1988 to 1996, we selected all patients without neoplasm who had at least two characteristics localizing to the occipital lobe (clinical symptoms, interictal focus, ictal onset, or a(More)
After generalized or partial seizures, transient lesions may appear on magnetic resonance (MR) images. The mechanisms of MR changes might be a defect in cerebral autoregulation and blood-brain permeability. We report a patient with partial and secondary generalized tonic-clonic seizures. After her first seizure which was generalized tonic-clonic in nature,(More)
