OBJECTIVE To determine the effect of treating obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) on seizure frequency in adults and children with epilepsy in a prospective study. Several case series documented an improvement in seizure control with treatment of coexisting OSA, but published series did not sample a clinic population, were not prospective in design, and did not(More)
Sleep apnea affects more than half of patients with acute ischemic stroke and is associated with poor stroke outcome. This pilot study assessed the feasibility of a randomized, sham-controlled continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) trial in subjects with acute ischemic stroke. Subjects identified with sleep apnea based on an apnea-hypopnea index≥5 on(More)
The retrolabyrinthine approach was described several years ago, however its use was restricted to functional surgery of the cerebellopontine angle. Its detractors reproach its narrowness. But a large approach to the cerbellopontine angle can be performed after an extended exposure of the posterior and middle fossa dura, and section of the endolymphatic sac.(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Sleep apnea is very common after stroke and is associated with poor outcome. Supine sleep is known to exacerbate apneas in the general sleep apnea population. We therefore investigated the pattern of sleep positions in the acute stroke period. METHODS Inpatients with acute ischemic stroke underwent full polysomnography that included(More)
Tests have determined that boots or shoes of individuals at a fire scene do not transport sufficient contaminants ("tracking") through the fire scene to produce a positive laboratory result for the presence of gasoline in a fire scene that was not present at the time of the fire. Questions about the validity of forensic laboratory results have been raised(More)
