Despite the significant morbidity and mortality associated with status epilepticus (SE), little is known about changes in cortical function that occur after SE. We evaluated cortical function after clinical SE using continuous EEG monitoring lasting at least 24 h in 180 patients admitted to the Medical College of Virginia Hospitals (MCVH). The major EEG(More)
We investigated the biochemical and clinical efficacy of dietary erucic acid (C22:1) therapy for X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD). In a double-blind crossover study of patients who were on chronic oleic acid (C18:1) therapy, addition of erucic acid to the diet led to a further reduction in plasma hexacosanoic acid (C26:0) concentration. We treated 12(More)
We utilized somatosensory evoked potentials to evaluate 33 patients with status epilepticus who did not have focal neurological etiologies. Eighteen percent of the patients had conventional stimulation evoked potential abnormalities at or above the P14 lemniscal level. Evoked potential abnormalities in this population showed a statistically significant(More)
