Down syndrome (DS) subjects develop Alzheimer disease (AD) histopathology before they develop dementia. We compared the resting and flash stimulated electroencephalogram (EEG) of nondemented adult DS and age-matched control subjects, in search of EEG abnormalities that might correlate with AD histopathology. DS subjects had increased absolute power in all(More)
electrical seizure activity induced by ECT appears in three phases: Phase I initial 18-22 Hz. (beta-like) activity, Phase II arrhythmic polyspike activity, and Phase III rhythmic 2 1/2-3 1/2 Hz. spike/polyspike-wave activity. With bitemporal ECT, Phase II activity appears simultaneously in all leads. With unilateral non-dominant hemisphere ECT, there is an(More)
The power spectra of the photically activated occipital EEGs of 9 mildly to moderately demented probable Alzheimer disease (AD) patients (according to NINCDS-ADRDA criteria), 9 normal age-matched control and 27 normal subjects of different ages were compared. In normal subjects, photic stimulation with rhythmic flashes ranging between 2 and 20 Hz elicited a(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Targeted radiotherapy of liver malignancies has found to be effective in selected patients. A key limiting factor of these therapies is the relatively low tolerance of the liver parenchyma to radiation. We sought to assess the preventive effects of a combined regimen of pentoxifylline (PTX), ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) and low-dose low(More)
PURPOSE Computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) guided brachytherapy provides high tumor control rates in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and colorectal liver metastases. In contrast to thermal ablation methods such as radiofrequency ablation (RFA), much less restrictions apply with respect to tumor location or size. In this study, we(More)
BACKGROUND The maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) is a common clinical parameter for quantification in F18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG-PET/CT), but it is influenced by image reconstruction. The aim of this study was to analyze the association of SUVmax deviations related to point spread function (PSF) and(More)
Metastatic spread of the primary is still defined as the systemic stage of disease in treatment guidelines for various solid tumors. This definition is the rationale for systemic therapy. Interestingly and despite the concept of systemic involvement, surgical resection as a local treatment has proven to yield long-term outcomes in a subset of patients with(More)
We have shown that the response to flash stimulation of the occipital electroencephalogram (EEG) in Alzheimer disease (AD) patients is smaller than in normal subjects. To ascertain whether this is a specific feature of AD or a nonspecific effect of dementia, we investigated in AD and multi-infarct dementia (MID) patients the relationship between cognitive(More)
Liver metastases from breast cancer (LMBC) are typically considered to indicate systemic disease spread and patients are most often offered systemic palliative treatment only. However, retrospective studies suggest that some patients may have improved survival with local treatment of their liver metastases compared to systemic therapy alone. In the absence(More)
