In the course of an open study on the add-on treatment of tiagabine (TGB) in patients with localization-related epilepsy syndromes, 2 of 9 patients developed nonconvulsive status epilepticus (NCSE) with electroclinical features consistent with those of atypical absence seizures. One patient had never had atypical absence seizures before. In both cases,(More)
A case of complex partial status epilepticus (CPSE) with high dose treatment of tiagabine (TGB) is reported. Seizure aggravation and CPSE developed after stepwise increase of TGB to a dose of 60 mg per day as add-on treatment to carbamazepine (CBZ) 1200 mg/day and vigabatrine (VGB) 1000 mg/day. The EEG during CPSE showed bilateral rhythmic slow activity.(More)

The two cases shown, which have been followed up for four years, demonstrate that pisiform grafting after Beck in Stage I aseptic necrosis of the lunate provides a means by which the configuration of the carpus and the function of the wrist are preserved better than by any other previously published method, and by which further collapse of the lunate can be(More)
Cardiovascular disease without significant traditional risk factors is uncommon. Microalbuminuria has been linked with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease in the diabetic and hypertensive patient. However, a similar influence of microalbuminuria on risk for cardiovascular disease occurs in individuals without diabetes or hypertension, and predicts(More)
Although clinical electroencephalography is no longer as important as it used to be in differential diagnosis of a fair number of neurological and psychiatric diseases ever since imaging techniques have been making enormous strides, EEG is still an important diagnostic tool in dementias where specific morphological lesions are not immediately or not at all(More)
