Cerebrovascular blood flow in absence seizures and flow patterns during the ictal period have not been thoroughly investigated. We aimed to evaluate cerebral blood flow changes in typical juvenile absence seizures during the ictal and postictal phases. Seizures were recorded in three patients (mean age: 21 +/- 1 years) with multiple daily typical absence(More)
INTRODUCTION According to the International Headache Society, ophthalmoplegic migraine is recurrent attacks of headache with migrainous characteristics associated with paresis of one or more ocular cranial nerves (commonly the third nerve) in the absence of any demonstrable intracranial lesion. We report a patient with typical clinical features of(More)
OBJECTIVES Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory disease of the human central nervous system. In the present study, we aimed to determine adiponectin, tumor necrosis factor-α, interleukin (IL)-12p70, and IL-13 levels in the sera of patients with MS and to investigate the effects of interferon (IFN), glatiramer acetate (GA), and immunosuppressive(More)
Frey syndrome and facial contour deformity commonly occur after parotid surgery. Although the treatment of established Frey syndrome has focused on medical solutions, surgical solutions to established Frey syndrome have been less reported. Moreover, these methods may not resolve the facial depression. In the presented case here, we used 2-stage surgical(More)
BACKGROUND Thalamic hemorrhage constitutes 6% to 25% of intracerebral hemorrhages. Vascular lesions affecting the thalamus may cause a variety of clinical symptoms. This retrospective study aims to evaluate localization of hemorrhage and clinical symptoms in patients with thalamic hemorrhage. METHODS One hundred and one patients with thalamic hemorrhage(More)
INTRODUCTION Unlike dementia, the effect of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) on outcomes after deep brain stimulation (DBS) in Parkinson's disease (PD) is less clear. We aimed to examine the effect of MCI on short- and long-term DBS outcomes. METHODS To study the effect of MCI type, cognitive domains (attention, language, visuospatial, memory, executive(More)
Vitamin D deficiency is suggested to be associated with Parkinson’s disease (PD). Our aim was to investigate the serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 (25OHD) levels of PD patients in Turkish cohort, to investigate any association of vitamin D binding protein (GC) genotypes with PD due to the significant role of GC in vitamin D transport, to determine whether vitamin(More)
Objectives. To investigate the properties of the strength-duration time constant (SDTC) in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. Methods. The SDTC and rheobase in 16 MS patients and 19 healthy controls were obtained following stimulation of the right median nerve at the wrist. Results. SDTC and rheobase values were 408.3 ± 60.0 μs and 4.0 ± 1.8 mA in MS(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the association between socioeconomic status and deep brain stimulation (DBS) outcomes in Parkinson's disease (PD). MATERIALS AND METHODS We analyzed a cohort of PD patients who underwent DBS from 2007 to 2011, who had Clinical Global Impression Scale-Improvement subscale (CGI-I) scores at approximately one year postsurgery. We(More)
Vasomotor reactivity, which can be defined as the cerebral vasculature response to hypoxia, is not well known in epilepsy patients. We aimed to evaluate cerebrovascular reserve in idiopathic generalized epilepsy patients using transcranial Doppler ultrasonography (TCD). The study included 20 patients and 20 healthy volunteers. Diagnosis of epilepsy was(More)
