PURPOSE Mechanical thrombectomy using a Solitaire stent has been associated with a high recanalization rate and favorable clinical outcome in intra-arterial thrombolysis. To achieve a higher recanalization rate for mechanical Solitaire thrombectomy, we used an intra-arterial low-dose booster tirofiban injection into the occluded segment after stent(More)
OBJECTIVE We hypothesize that pre-existing susceptible structures in the brain may be associated with the development of newly diagnosed partial epilepsy of unknown etiology. METHODS Twenty-two patients with newly diagnosed partial epilepsy of unknown etiology and 36 healthy controls were enrolled in this study. In addition, we included 24 patients with(More)

Episodic ataxia type 2 (EA-2) is a rare disorder presenting with paroxysmal vertigo and cerebellar dysfunction. EA-2 is known to be caused by mutations of the CACNA1A gene on chromosome 19q13. We examined a family of EA-2 with a novel mutation of the CACNA1A gene showing characteristic ocular symptoms. A-36-year woman visited our hospital with paroxysmal(More)
BACKGROUND We evaluated the cortical morphology in patients with orthostatic intolerance. METHODS Thirty patients with orthostatic intolerance, as well as age- and sex-matched normal controls, were enrolled in this study. We divided the patients into orthostatic hypotension (n = 22) and postural tachycardia syndrome (n = 8) groups based on their response(More)
