Language interference was elicited by electrical stimulation of the dominant basal temporal region in 8 out of 22 cases and in none of 7 cases with subdural electrodes implanted over the nondominant temporal lobe. Language interference was elicited by stimulation of electrodes placed over the fusiform gyrus 3-7 cm from the tip of the temporal lobe.(More)
We studied the eye movements (EM) elicited by electrical stimulation of the frontal lobe in 19 awake patients evaluated with subdural electrodes for epilepsy surgery. All patients had only contralateral conjugated EM. They were saccadic in 16 patients (84%). Head version, always following the eye deviation, occurred in 11 patients (58%). We also determined(More)
Intraoperative cortical stimulation for evaluation of cortical function has been used extensively to define the extent of cortical excisions for surgical treatment of epilepsy. With chronic implantation of subdural electrodes, extraoperative cortical stimulation becomes possible, and these favorable testing conditions permit more precise mapping of the(More)
We observed unilateral dystonic posturing of an arm or leg in 41 complex partial seizures (CPS) from 18 patients. In all cases this was contralateral to the ictal discharge. Unilateral automatisms occurred in 39 of 41 seizures on the side opposite the dystonic limb. Version occurred in 11 of the 41 CPS to the same side as the dystonic posturing and always(More)
We retrospectively analyzed the presence of sharp waves in 2-h EEGs performed 6 months after epilepsy surgery in 59 patients. To study the significance of the postoperative interictal epileptiform activity in the tissue remaining after resection, we included only patients with a single epileptic focus (as defined preoperatively by prolonged video/EEG(More)
Eighty-eight patients had bilateral intracarotid amobarbital (Wada) testing to determine hemispheric dominance for language in preparation for epilepsy surgery, as well as unilateral extraoperative cortical electrical stimulation using subdural electrode arrays. In none of the patients with left dominance by Wada testing were language areas found with(More)
BACKGROUND Pathologic skin scarring reversion remains a big challenge for surgeons, as disfiguring scars have a dramatic influence on patient's quality of life. METHODS A controlled clinical trial was conducted to evaluate 8% pirfenidone (PFD) gel administered topically 3 times a day during 6 months to 33 pediatric patients with hypertrophic scars caused(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM The aim of this work was to establish a potential correlation between specific polymorphisms and presence of hepatic fibrosis in Mexican patients with established liver fibrosis (ELF). Second, necroinflammatory index improvement was correlated with Pirfenidone (PFD) treatment response and the same polymorphisms. METHODS We analyzed TGF-beta(More)
