PURPOSE Identification of risk factors for unsuccessful testing during intracarotid amobarbital procedure (IAP) in preadolescent children. METHODS A pediatric IAP protocol was attempted in 42 candidates for epilepsy surgery (5-12 years old; mean, 10 years) based on the ability to pass a practice test. Language dominance was defined by marked asymmetry(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVES Recognizing epileptic seizures during video polysomnography (VPSG) can be challenging, particularly when using standard, limited EEG montages and paper speed. Few sleep laboratories have PSG equipment that allows for the recording of 18 channels of EEG without compromising the ability to detect sleep apnea, periodic limb movements, and(More)
To determine whether lesional neocortical temporal lobe epilepsy (NTLE) can be differentiated from mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE) during the noninvasive presurgical evaluation, we compared the historical features, seizure symptomatology, and surface EEG of 8 patients seizure free after neocortical temporal resection with preservation of mesial(More)
UNLABELLED Anticipated technical difficulty is one factor that can influence the anesthesiologist's decision to perform neuraxial (spinal or epidural) blockade. Problems during the procedure may be associated with patient dissatisfaction, neurologic sequelae, or hematoma. We designed this study of 595 neuraxial blocks to determine whether any patient(More)
Water, collagen and glycosamimoglycan contents, cross-sectional area, stiffness and elastic modulus were carefully quantitated in flexor digitorum superficialis tendons from mature canines. From these data the within- and between-animal variability was estimated and used to demonstrate sample size calculations for both two-group and paired (within-animal)(More)
