OBJECTIVE To clarify the clinical significance of ictal high frequency oscillations (HFO) in the medial temporal lobe. METHODS This study included 19 patients who underwent intracranial electrode implantation in bilateral temporal lobes and had at least one seizure recorded at 1kHz sampling rate. The characteristics of ictal HFO in the medial temporal(More)
Migraine-like features sometimes characterize the headache that follows epileptic seizure (postictal headache, PIH). We compared patients with different types of epilepsy to investigate the association between migraine-like PIH and seizure type. Subjects comprised 364 patients with partial epilepsy. Epilepsy types were temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE, n = 177),(More)
PURPOSE To clarify the differences between postictal mania (PIM) and postictal psychosis (PIP). METHODS Five patients with PIM were compared to 17 patients with PIP, with respect to clinical, epileptological, electrophysiological, and neuroimaging features. PIM was distinguished from PIP by the symptoms observed in the postictal period based on the ICD-10(More)
An inverted duplication of chromosome 15 (inv dup[15] chromosome) is the most common supernumerary marker chromosome in humans. Inv dup(15) chromosomes are commonly associated with mental retardation, epilepsy, behavioral problems and structural malformations. Though epilepsies associated with inv dup(15) chromosomes are often intractable, there have been(More)
The nature of post-ictal headache (PIH) remains unclear. A multicenter study was conducted in order to evaluate frequency and risk factors for PIH. The subjects consisted of 97 patients with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE), 65 patients with frontal lobe epilepsy (FLE) and 37 patients with occipital lobe epilepsy (OLE). The subjects were asked about PIH at each(More)
We investigated post-ictal headaches (PIH) using a questionnaire to ascertain their characteristics and compare them among different types of epilepsy. The subjects consisted of 34 patients with occipital lobe epilepsy (OLE) and 75 patients with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). PIH occurred in 62% of OLE and 23% of TLE (P < 0.05). The quality of pain in PIH(More)
OBJECTIVE A multicenter prospective study was performed to assess the additional value of a subtraction ictal SPECT coregistered to MRI (SISCOM) technique to traditional side-by-side comparison of ictal- and interictal SPECT images in epilepsy surgery. METHODS One hundred and twenty-three patients with temporal and extratemporal lobe epilepsy who had(More)
PURPOSE Intracranial EEG in patients with lesional lateral temporal lobe epilepsy is rarely reported. Therefore, the number of patients with seizures arising independently from ipsilateral mesial structures or contralateral hemisphere has not been clarified. We analyzed the intracranial EEG of cases with localized lesion in the lateral temporal cortex. (More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the incidence of post-ictal headaches (PIH) and clinical risk factors associated with the occurrence of PIH in patients with localization-related epilepsy. MATERIALS AND METHODS The subjects were 77 patients with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE), 34 patients with occipital lobe epilepsy (OLE), and 50 patients with frontal lobe epilepsy(More)
To clarify the value of versive seizures in lateralizing and localizing the epileptogenic zone in patients with occipital lobe epilepsy, we studied 13 occipital lobe epilepsy patients with at least one versive seizure recorded during preoperative noninvasive video-EEG monitoring, who underwent occipital lobe resection, and were followed postoperatively for(More)
