OBJECTIVE In the majority of literature concerning age in TBI, specifically in subdural hematomas (SDH), the mean age of patients considered elderly is 55-65. Limited data in SDH patients>75 years suggest an increased mortality rate. The impact of medical decision making on these data is not well-documented. PATIENTS/METHODS We use the Nationwide(More)
BACKGROUND Ictal-interictal continuum (IIC) continuous EEG (cEEG) patterns including periodic discharges and rhythmic delta activity are associated with poor outcome and in the appropriate clinical context, IIC patterns may represent "electroclinical" status epilepticus (SE). To clarify the significance of IIC patterns and their relationship to(More)
We directly assessed mesial temporal activity using intracranial foramen ovale electrodes in two patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) without a history or EEG evidence of seizures. We detected clinically silent hippocampal seizures and epileptiform spikes during sleep, a period when these abnormalities were most likely to interfere with memory(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine the frequency of association of major congenital malformations in pregnancy in women exposed to antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) in an inner city population. BACKGROUND Approximately 0.3-0.5% of all pregnancies involve women with epilepsy. The risk of congenital malformations associated with AED therapy has been(More)
Clinicians have qualitatively described rhythmic delta activity as a prominent EEG abnormality in individuals with Angelman syndrome, but this phenotype has yet to be rigorously quantified in the clinical population or validated in a preclinical model. Here, we sought to quantitatively measure delta rhythmicity and evaluate its fidelity as a biomarker. We(More)
