This study prospectively investigates whether noninvasive functional transcranial Doppler sonography (fTCD) is a useful tool to determine hemispheric language lateralization in the presurgical evaluation of patients with medically intractable temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). fTCD results were compared with the Wada test as the gold standard. Wada test and fTCD(More)
Functional transcranial Doppler sonography was used to study hemispheric language dominance (HLD) in 24 right-handed patients with left temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) and a structural lesion in the left temporal lobe and in 69 healthy controls. Twenty-five percent of the patients and 4% of controls showed atypical (right or bilateral) HLD. Degree of HLD was(More)

In order to gain further insight into the prostaglandin (PG)- and vitamin(More)
