Patients with non-lesional or bilateral temporal-lobe epilepsy (TLE) are often excluded from surgical treatment. This study investigated focus lateralization in TLE to understand identification of the affected hemisphere with regard to non-lesional or bilateral affection and postsurgical outcome. A total of 24 TLE patients underwent presurgical evaluation(More)
Hemispherectomy is effective for young patients suffered from unilateral cortical disease and severe drug-resistant epilepsy, but a major concern for hemispherectomy is the remaining brain functions and function recovery in patients after such surgery. In this study, seven patients were evaluated with clinical and imaging assessment pre- and post-surgery.(More)
Intracranial EEG (icEEG) monitoring is critical in epilepsy surgical planning, but it has limitations. The advances of neuroimaging have made it possible to reveal epileptic abnormalities that could not be identified previously and improve the localization of the seizure focus and the vital cortex. A frequently asked question in the field is whether(More)
Simultaneous EEG-fMRI is a non-invasive investigation technique developed to localize the generators of interictal epileptiform discharges (IED) in patients with epilepsy. Although the value of EEG-fMRI in epilepsy presurgical evaluation is being assessed clinically, its utility is still controversial. In this review, we considered EEG-fMRI applications in(More)
Although epilepsy surgery is an effective treatment for patients with drug-resistant epilepsy, surgical outcomes vary across patient groups and studies. Identification of reliable prognostic factors for surgical outcome is important for outcome research. In this study, recent systematic reviews and meta-analyses on prediction of seizure outcome have been(More)
Diabetic neuropathic pain is reduced with tight glycemic control. However, strict control increases the risk of hypoglycemic episodes, which are themselves linked to painful neuropathy. This study explored the effects of hypoglycemia-related painful neuropathy. Pretreatment with coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) was performed to explore the preventive effect of CoQ10 on(More)
Epilepsy surgery has improved over the last decade, but non-seizure-free outcome remains at 10%-40% in temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) and 40%-60% in extratemporal lobe epilepsy (ETLE). This paper reports a complex multifocal case. With a normal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) result and nonlocalizing electroencephalography (EEG) findings (bilateral TLE and(More)
