Continuous recordings of brain electrical activity were obtained from a group of 176 patients throughout surgical procedures using general anesthesia. Artifact-free data from the 19 electrodes of the International 10/20 System were subjected to quantitative analysis of the electroencephalogram (QEEG). Induction was variously accomplished with etomidate,(More)
BACKGROUND This retrospective study describes the performance of the Patient State Index (PSI), under standard clinical practice conditions. The PSI is comprised of quantitative features of the EEG (QEEG) that display clear differences between hypnotic states, but consistency across anaesthetic agents within the state. METHODS The PSI was constructed from(More)
This study replicates preliminary findings reporting a quantitative electroencephalographic (QEEG) profile of crack cocaine dependence in abstinence. All subjects (n = 52) met criteria for DMS-III-R cocaine dependence (in the form of crack), and were residing in a drug-free therapeutic community. Baseline QEEG evaluations were conducted at intake (5-10 days(More)
Quantitative electroencephalographic (qEEG) profiles were studied in cocaine dependent patients in response to cocaine cue exposure. Using neurometric analytical methods, the spectral power of each primary bandwidth was computed and topographically mapped. Additional measures of cue-reactivity included cocaine craving, anxiety and related subjective(More)
Methods have recently been proposed for localization of multiple brain sources of particular EEG frequencies recorded from the scalp, to identify their most probable neuroanatomical generators. This paper reports the accurate localization of a deep white matter lymphoma, using Variable Resolution Electromagnetic Tomography (VARETA). The accuracy of this(More)
This study investigates the existence of outcome related neurophysiological subtypes within a population of abstinent cocaine dependent adults. We have previously reported and replicated the existence of a distinctive quantitative EEG (QEEG) profile in such a population, and demonstrated the persistence of this pattern at one and six month follow-up(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Several carotid endarterectomy randomized, controlled trials and series have reported higher perioperative stroke and death rates for women compared with men. The potential for this same relationship with carotid artery stenting was examined in the lead-in phase of the Carotid Revascularization Endarterectomy versus Stenting Trial(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Evidence indicates that center volume of cases affects outcomes for both carotid endarterectomy and stenting. We evaluated the effect of enrollment volume by site on complication rates in the Carotid Revascularization Endarterectomy Versus Stenting Trial (CREST). METHODS The primary composite end point was any stroke, myocardial(More)
