We propose in this paper a detection algorithm based on a cost function that jointly tests the correlation induced by the cyclic prefix and the fact that this correlation is time-periodic. In the first part of the paper, the cost function is introduced and some analytical results are given. In particular, the noise and multipath channel impacts on its(More)
BACKGROUND To determine the incidence, risk factors, and case fatality rate of status epilepticus (SE) in the French-speaking part of Switzerland. METHODS Between October 1, 1997 and September 30, 1998 all cases of SE referred to all the hospitals in the six cantons of the French-speaking part of Switzerland were identified by physicians working in(More)
Our aim was to obtain baseline data for an epilepsy education program adapted to communities in Cameroon. We conducted 302 face-to-face interviews with patients without epilepsy, caregivers, and visitors in the Batibo District Hospital. Most respondents (99.3%) had heard or read about epilepsy, 89.7% knew someone with epilepsy, and 87.7% had witnessed a(More)
Most idiopathic generalized epilepsies have an onset in childhood or adolescence, with a moderate second incidence peak in the presenium predominantly in women. This study addressed the question of a later onset. The available literature and the records of four personal data sets (two prospective incidence surveys of epileptic seizures, one prevalence study(More)
OBJECTIVE In the last decade several studies have been published on incidence, etiology, and prognosis of status epilepticus (SE) with population-based data from the United States and Europe. The aim of this review is to summarize the available information on the epidemiology of SE and to outline the sources of the variability in reported mortality after(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to assess knowledge, attitudes, and practices (KAP) with respect to epilepsy in Badissa, as part of a series of studies mandated by the Cameroon Ministry of Public Health. METHOD We interviewed 164 subjects face-to-face during a door-to-door survey. RESULTS All of the subjects had heard about epilepsy; 98.8% knew at(More)
On June 6th and 7th, 1996, an international workshop on specific aspects of epilepsy in the developing world was organized in Geneva by the chairman of the ILAE Commission of Epilepsy in Developing Countries, P. Jallon, involving members of the ILAE, the World Health Organization (WHO), and a network of people who work with epilepsy patients in developing(More)
PURPOSE We describe first unprovoked seizures and newly diagnosed epilepsies at initial presentation, with a special emphasis on epilepsy syndromes, in a large cohort recruited in the mid-1990s in France. METHODS The French Foundation for Research on Epilepsy set up a network to conduct a prospective study of patients with newly diagnosed unprovoked(More)
Epilepsy is a common neurological condition with significant resource implications. An estimation was performed in France of the direct medical cost of patients presented with newly diagnosed seizures and followed during the first two years after diagnosis. This estimation was based on the service utilization data collected from French prospective cohort(More)
