Early posttraumatic epilepsies (EPTE) are epileptic attacks that appear in first seven days after brain injury, with incidence of 3-5%. Predictors for development of EPTE are: impressive skull fracture with rupture of dura, intracranial haemorrhage, neurogical deficit (brain contusion), and posttraumatic amnesia longer than 24 hours. It is more common in(More)
In this case report, the boy with familiar spastic paraplegia, the relatively rare genetic disorder and Klinefelter syndrome that was found during investigation, has been presented. The diagnosis of the disease has been established by anamnesis, clinical features and relevant diagnostic procedures, so the criteria for autosomal dominant type of the familiar(More)
Microdeletion syndromes are caused by chromosomal deletions of less than 5 megabases which can be detected by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH). We evaluated the most commonly detected microdeletions for the period from June 01, 2008 to June 01, 2015 in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, including DiGeorge, Prader-Willi/Angelman,(More)
Medically intractable epilepsies are defined as seizures that are not controlled after an adequate trial with 2 first-line antiepileptic drugs (AED). Evidence in the literature show that these patients have many dysfunctions in their lifes. Lamotrigine is part of group of "newer antiepileptic drugs". Goal of this paper was to show what benefit is expected(More)
Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome (WHS) is a rare developmental disorder associated with hemizygous deletion of short arm of chromosome 4. Main phenotype characteristics of WHS are: intrauterine growth retardation, mental retardation, typical facial dysmorphism ("Greek warrior helmet"), microcephaly and midline fusion defects (cleft lip or palate, cardiac septal(More)
Massive gathering of clinical records started quite soon, at the turn of the last century, about 100 years ago. In that period keeping and gathering of medical records gradually evolved from paper medical records to computer-based medical records. Software that we use for this is quite different. We are witnessing tendency that each medical institution is(More)
Carbamazepine is the one of the most prescribed antiepileptic drugs in treatment of partial and generalized tonic-clonic seizures. Its efficacy in treatment of seizures was discovered incidentally during the trials of neuroleptic drugs. Generally it is well tolerated with relatively rare serious side effects. Therapy is introduced gradually, with mean dose(More)
The clinical algorithm is a text format that is specially suited for presenting a sequence of clinical decisions, for teaching clinical decision making, and for guiding patient care. Clinical algorithms are compared as to their clinical usefulness with decision analysis. We have tried to make clinical algorithm for managing status epilepticus in children(More)
Although birth-related brachial plexus injury (BPI) was first described more than two centuries ago, it still represents therapeutic dillemma. Incidence is 0.37-2.0 per 1000 live births. The most frequent etiologic cause is extreme lateral traction and excessive fundal pressure in a case of shoulder dystocia. However, in last decade there are reports that(More)
INTRODUCTION Neuroprotective benefit of therapeutic hypothermia in term newborns with hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) was assessed by analyzing survival and neurodevelopmental outcome of neonates subjected to this procedure. MATERIAL AND METHODS Newborns with gestational age > 36 weeks and < 6 hours of age with moderate to severe asphyxial(More)
