We report a case of a 6-year old girl with ring chromosome 20 syndrome whose medically intractable seizures were successfully treated with vagal nerve stimulation therapy. Medically intractable seizures are an expected part of this rare syndrome, and the dramatic improvement in seizure control with vagal nerve stimulation is emphasized. Earlier use of vagal(More)
Background—These studies were initiated to confirm that high-level thrombomodulin overexpression is sufficient to limit neointima formation after mechanical overdilation injury. Methods and Results—An adenoviral construct expressing thrombomodulin (Adv/RSV-THM) was created and functionally characterized in vitro and in vivo. The impact of local(More)
INTRODUCTION Electrodiagnostic testing plays a key role in the characterization of neuropathies. To this end, sets of electrodiagnostic criteria have been proposed to define chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP). These criteria sets differ because of the number of data points within the sets, the number of required abnormal measures(More)
A syndrome of generalized weakness, areflexia, and difficulty with weaning from a ventilator is a common clinical presentation in the critically ill patient, especially in the setting of sepsis, multiorgan failure, and hyperglycemia. At first believed to be a manifestation of nerve (critical illness neuropathy, CIN) or muscle (critical illness myopathy,(More)
Neurolymphomatosis (NL) refers to a lymphomatous infiltration of peripheral nerves associated with central nervous system or systemic lymphoma, or alternatively, neurodiagnostic evidence of nerve enhancement and/or enlargement beyond the dural sleeve in the setting of primary central nervous system lymphoma or systemic lymphoma. NL is a rare complication of(More)
PURPOSE Historically, F-waves have been classified by various linear descriptors like persistence, latency, duration, amplitude, chrono-dispersion and number of repeater waves. But because physiological signals are notoriously nonlinear in nature, the objective of this study was to apply modern nonlinear methodology to F-waves sequences to assess the(More)
Overview Caffeine is the most widely used psychoactive substance and has sometimes been considered a drug of abuse. This article summarizes the available data on its neurologic effects. Classic drugs of abuse lead to specific increases in cerebral functional activity and dopamine release in the shell of the nucleus accumbens (the key neural structure for(More)
Maize (Zea mays L.) is the third most important crop of country after rice and wheat and is cultivated round the year. Its grain is used as feed, food and industrial raw material. Enormous progress has been made during last six decades to enhance yield potential through genetic improvement and alleviate effects due to various biotic- and abiotic-stresses.(More)
