We describe an EEG pattern in pediatric sleep records, called the frequency-amplitude gradient (FAG). This pattern is a progressive decrement in voltage from occipital to frontal areas, with an accompanying decrease in slow frequencies in the same posterior-anterior direction. We report the results of examining 100 sleep records of children between birth(More)
Multimodal evoked potentials (EPs) were obtained serially in 57 patients with multiple sclerosis enrolled in a double-blind, controlled study of hyperbaric oxygen. We encountered drawbacks in the use of EPs in monitoring effects of a treatment for chronic multiple sclerosis. Limitations include a relatively arduous testing protocol and the significant(More)
Erythrocyte glutathione peroxidase, catalase, and superoxide dismutase activities were measured in 18 patients with clinically definite MS, and results compared with those from neurological controls. These studies indicated that glutathione peroxidase activity in erythrocytes of MS patients was not different from that of the neurological controls. However,(More)
Verbal dichotic listening tests employing nonsense consonant-vowel stimulus pairs were administered to 11 right-handed patients with chronic multiple sclerosis and to 10 right-handed normal controls. A highly significant reduction of left-ear scores was found in the multiple sclerosis group. We propose that the basis for this finding is a disconnection of(More)
The toxicity of topically applied podophyllin in a 16-year-old girl is presented. Coma requiring respiratory support and major neurologic complications as well as hematologic and hepatic toxicity was observed. Therapy with a new modality, charcoal hemoperfusion, resulted in resolution of the acute toxicity, leaving a peripheral neuropathy which had not(More)
INTRODUCTION Long term outcomes of esophageal atresia (OA) are poorly understood. The Federation of Esophageal Atresia and Tracheo-Esophageal Fistula support groups (EAT), a collaboration of patient support groups aimed to define patient reported long term outcomes and quality of life (QoL) in a large international cohort of OA patients. METHODS(More)
