We evaluated the factors that influence the use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) by people with epilepsy. Two hundred forty-six people were recruited from an outpatient clinic. Data on CAM utilization in the past 5 years as well as in the near future were collected via face-to-face structured interviews, and the factors contributing to CAM(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE There are currently few studies on clinical profiles of reflex epilepsy induced by thinking and spatial tasks. We studied the clinical characteristics of reflex epilepsy induced by playing oriental card and board games. METHODS This study included 17 patients who presented with seizures that occur predominantly while playing games.(More)
PURPOSE To identify the probable etiologies and characteristics of new-onset seizures after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) and to assess their clinical implications and prognosis. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed the clinical, electrophysiologic and laboratory data of 17 patients with new-onset seizures after OLT among 367 adult and pediatric(More)

We determined 1) clinicopathologic characteristics of patients who presented with non-spine bone metastasis of unknown primary(More)
We investigated whether there is a cluster effect depending on localization of seizure foci in patients with bilateral seizure foci. We evaluated 171 seizure pairs from 193 seizures recorded in 28 patients. Seizure lateralization was determined by the lateralization of ictal discharges; if the ictal EEG pattern was not lateralized, lateralization was(More)
