OBJECTIVE To describe mesial temporal lobe ablated volumes, verbal memory, and surgical outcomes in patients with medically intractable mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (mTLE) treated with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-guided stereotactic laser interstitial thermal therapy (LiTT). METHODS We prospectively tracked seizure outcome in 20 patients at Thomas(More)
HIV-1 seropositive patients have a high frequency of nervous system diseases, and asymptomatic abnormalities are frequently detected. We studied 124 neurologically asymptomatic HIV-1 seropositive subjects and 23 normal control subjects by nerve conduction studies. No alterations were detectable in the asymptomatic stages of infection (CDC groups II and(More)
We investigated the voltage topography of interictal spikes in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) to see whether topography was related to etiology for TLE. Adults with TLE, who had epilepsy surgery for drug-resistant seizures from 2011 until 2014 at Jefferson Comprehensive Epilepsy Center were selected. Two groups of patients were studied: patients(More)
OBJECTIVES We investigated the clinical features associated with olfactory auras in patients with drug-resistant epilepsy and also hypothesized that this type of aura may predict worse postsurgical outcome in patients with drug-resistant temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). METHODS In this retrospective analysis, data from all patients with drug-resistant(More)
