We report two patients with intractable partial seizures who developed generalized nonconvulsive status epilepticus (NCSE) after receiving tiagabine (TGB). Neither had a history of absence seizures or generalized epileptic discharges on prior EEG monitoring. Clinicians need to be aware of a possible association between TGB and NCSE.
While the prognosis of acute childhood leukemia has improved, long-term survivors are increasingly experiencing late effects of the treatment. Cranially irradiated survivors are predisposed to the development of CNS tumors. Our aim was to describe the incidence of secondary brain tumors and to define the significance of treatment-related risk factors and… (More)
Analysis of resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data is based on detecting low-frequency signal fluctuations in functionally connected brain areas. These synchronous fluctuations in resting-state networks have been observed in several studies with healthy subjects. In this study, we explored if independent component analysis (ICA) can… (More)
BACKGROUND Results of awake craniotomy are compared to results of resections done under general anesthesia in patients operated with IMRI control. We hypothesized that stimulation of the cortex and white matter during awake surgery supplements IMRI control allowing for safer resection of eloquent brain area tumors. METHODS The study group consisted of 20… (More)
