The properties of Althesin (anticonvulsant activity, depression of oxygen consumption, lowering of ICP, rapid excretion) led us to use this steroid combination to treat 11 patients in status epilepticus resistant to the standard drugs (benzodiazepines and barbiturates). The administration of Althesin by slow intravenous injection was ineffective in 2 of the(More)
The Authors describe a case of right internal jugular vein thrombosis caused by a catheter in the subclavian vein which occurred in a four-month-old baby with chronic subdural hematomas. They emphasize that this thrombotic complication precludes the insertion of a ventriculo-cardiac shunt and point out the opportunity to prefer left subclavian cannulation(More)
In view of its anticonvulsant effects in the experimental animal, its low toxicity, and its manageability, Althesin was used at doses of 80-600 mg in the treatment of barbiturate and benzodiazepine resistant epilepsy in 11 patients aged 15 months to 62 yr. Lasting suspension of the disease was obtained in 8 subjects. Burst suppression was achieved in 7 of(More)
7 patients (aged 15 months-72 years) were treated by intravenous infusion of alfatesine in varying dose depending on age and body weight. Treatment was effective in 6 of the 7 patients, 4 of whom had previously derived no benefit from standard treatment with benzodiazepines. Intravenous injection in 2 cases only increased the interval between seizures from(More)
