The primary purpose of this article is to determine whether sleep deprivation (SD) of 24 h or longer has been demonstrated to be an effective procedure for eliciting epileptiform and/or seizure patterns in the EEG in epilepsy patients as compared with those of nonepileptics. The relevant literature is reviewed, first chronologically and then critically.(More)
Glycogen deposition in vascular smooth muscle has been demonstrated previously in alpha-glucosidase deficiency but has not been clinically significant. Three sons of healthy, nonconsanguineous parents developed progressive proximal muscular weakness secondary to alpha-glucosidase deficiency. Each patient developed a fusiform basilar artery aneurysm, which(More)

In acute multiple sclerosis, cranial computerized tomography (CT) may show periventricular and deep white matter contrast-enhanced lesions that are easier to see using 8 mm rather than 13 mm cranial CT sections. Follow-up studies show that the lesions evolve either to areas of density similar to the surrounding white matter or to low-density lesions. We(More)
Estimates of the number of neurologists needed in the United States have been widely divergent. For direct patient care needs alone in a US population of 243.5 million, the Joint Commission on Neurology (ANA-AAN) estimate was 14,000 neurologist, the Delphi Panel median (Battelle/GMENAC) 11,200, and the Advisory Panel (Battelle/GMENAC) 6,200; our review(More)
BACKGROUND Eccentric quadriceps contraction during landing and the resulting anterior tibial shear force are anterior cruciate ligament injury risk factors, while hamstring contraction limits anterior cruciate ligament loading. Anterior tibial shear force is derived from quadriceps and hamstring co-contraction, and a greater quadriceps/hamstring strength(More)
