The authors report the surgical management of 32 patients with medically intractable seizures. In all cases the epileptiform focus present in the temporal region was demonstrated by electroencephalography. Our report was made up of 14 male patients and 18 female patients. Their ages ranged from 9 to 62 years. The material was divided into two groups. The(More)
We studied 49 patients with partial epilepsy divided into lesional cases (i.e. with lesions on CT scan) and non-lesional cases (i.e. without CT scan lesions), in relation to the Wechsler Intelligence Scale subtests (Coding, Digit span), dichotic listening CV task and Central Auditory Test (SSI, PSI). The aim of this paper was to study the hemispheric(More)
Surgery of arteriovenous malformations (AVM) and of cavernous angiomas (cavernoma) in the majority of cases is indicated subsequently to episodes of bleeding. With the development of techniques for diagnosis and surgery for epilepsy of difficult control, indication for surgery of these vascular lesions has become greater. We present nine patients with(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the first dedicated clinic in the UK for children with suspected or confirmed female genital mutilation (FGM) including referral patterns, clinical findings and subsequent management. DESIGN AND SETTING A prospective study of all children seen in a dedicated multidisciplinary FGM clinic for children over a 1-year period. POPULATION(More)
Fourteen right handed patients with partial epilepsy (Epileptic Group) and with a median age of 31 years were divided into two groups (Right and Left), according the laterality of paroxystic activity in the electroencaphalogram. Of the 14 patients, 42.8% (6/14) presented a focus at the right side while the others 57.2% (8/14) presented a focus at the left.(More)
This study concerns about brain electrical activity during auditory stimulation in 2 aphasic patients, one with classical (left hemisphere lesion) and another with cross aphasia (right hemisphere lesion). Both cases were submitted to dichotic listening test (consonant-vowel-consonant task) and music audition (gregorian chant), during brain mapping(More)
The performance in visual verbal and non-verbal attentional tests was studied in 14 male and 18 female control subjects and 33 patients with cryptogenic partial epilepsy. The epileptic group was formed of 17 men and 16 women with no evidence of brain damage in CT scan examinations. Interictal epileptiform activity was observed only unilaterally, either in(More)
The clinical and EEG features of 53 out-patients with benign partial epilepsy of childhood with rolandic spikes were studied. The age mean (years) of seizures onset was 5.5 +/- 3.2. Simple partial seizures with speech arrest were more frequent than other seizure types. In seven cases (13.2%) cognitive disabilities were present. In the left-side foci a(More)
