OBJECTIVES To evaluate the significance of exclusively unifocal, unilateral, interictal epileptiform patterns on scalp electroencephalography (EEG) in surgical candidates with medically intractable extratemporal epilepsy. METHODS We reviewed 126 patients with refractory extratemporal partial seizures who underwent epilepsy surgery at our center. All were(More)
PURPOSE To determine if there is evidence that the left cerebral hemisphere is more prone to epileptogenesis than the right hemisphere. METHODS We examined 532 patients with localization-related epilepsy, as documented by long-term EEG-video monitor studies. We identified those with interictal epileptiform patterns on EEG confined to one hemisphere, those(More)
Our purpose is to determine predictors of outcome in patients with refractory temporal lobe epilepsy and normal high resolution magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) who undergo surgical therapy. We identified 23 patients who underwent temporal lobectomy and had normal pre-operative MRI, including surface coil phased array temporal lobe imaging. All were(More)
The objective of this review is a summary of the clinical and electrographic findings in those forms of epilepsy to which the term 'extratemporal' (ExT) can be applied. They form a group that differs in many ways from the better known temporal lobe epilepsies. Seizure foci are difficult to localize by clinical semiology alone but modern imaging now often(More)
PURPOSE Numerous factors have been analyzed in attempts to predict the outcome of surgical resections in patients with neocortical epilepsy. We examined the correlation between surgical outcome and electrocorticographic features of neocortical ictal patterns. METHODS Twenty six patients with neocortical epilepsy underwent monitoring with subdural grid(More)
We reviewed the electrophysiologic data and the etiology of lumbosacral plexopathy in 22 consecutive patients with pelvic trauma referred for electromyography (EMG). Most (68%) patients had sacral fractures or sacroiliac joint separation, 14% had acetabular fractures, and 9% had femoral fractures. Lumbosacral plexopathy was significantly more common (P =(More)
