BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The most common prescribed antiepileptic drugs (AEDs), phenytoin and valproate, are potent enzyme inducers and inhibitors of the cytochrome P450 system, which interfere with lipid profile and glucose homeostasis. Studies on this topic have suffered from inadequate assessment of confounders and have rarely included glucose homeostasis(More)
This cross-sectional study examined the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) performance in cryptogenic epileptic patients aged more than 15 years with normal global cognition according to the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) score. We tested our hypothesis that the prevalence of mild cognitive impairment and associated patient correlation factors might(More)
OBJECTIVE To validate and simplify a screening questionnaire for the determination of PD. METHODS The screening questionnaire for PD was developed with the permission of the author. Reliability of the questionnaire was tested. To validate the questionnaire, 40 patients with PD and 93 controls completed the questionnaire. Multiple logistic regression(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the risk factors of seizure recurrence and the most common comorbidities in elderly patients with epilepsy. METHOD We did a retrospective study of 278 patients older than 65 years with first seizure. We evaluated electrolytes, blood glucose, urea and creatinine levels, and performed electrocardiography (ECG), and routine(More)
PURPOSE We investigated the influence of the CYP2C9 polymorphism on the lipid profile, insulin resistance, and subclinical atherosclerosis in young epileptic patients. METHODS We performed a cross-sectional study to evaluate the association between CYP2C9 polymorphism and lipid profile, glucose homeostasis, and subclinical atherosclerosis in young(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the association between the BsmI polymorphism and vascular risk factors or metabolic syndrome in patients with epilepsy treated with valproate. METHODS We performed a cross-sectional study to determine glucose homeostasis, lipid profile, and evidence of metabolic syndrome, as well as the BsmI polymorphism in seizure free adults with(More)
PURPOSE There is a strong scientific rationale to support the view that cytochrome P450 (CYP P450) enzyme-inducing AEDs induce bone loss in patients with epilepsy. However, no study has investigated the association between CYP 2C9 polymorphism and bone mineral density (BMD), 25-hydroxyvitamin D or parathyroid hormone levels in patients with epilepsy. This(More)
OBJECTIVE Epilepsia partialis continua (EPC) is clinically defined as a syndrome of continuous focal jerking of a body part. EPC has various etiologies and outcomes depending on its cause. Most studies on EPC have been conducted in Western countries and no study on the long-term outcome in adult onset epilepsia partialis continua has been reported. The aim(More)
