PURPOSE In neocortical epilepsies not satisfactorily responsive to systemic antiepileptic drug therapy, local application of antiepileptic agents onto the epileptic focus may enhance treatment efficacy and tolerability. We describe the effects of focally applied valproate (VPA) in a newly emerging rat model of neocortical epilepsy induced by tetanus toxin(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Cerebral perfusion and O(2) metabolism are affected by physiologic age-related changes. High-resolution motion-corrected quantitative T2'-imaging and PASL were used to evaluate differences in deoxygenated hemoglobin and CBF of the gray matter between young and elderly healthy subjects. Further combined T2'-imaging and PASL were(More)
PURPOSE Pharmacotherapy of epilepsies is limited due to low concentrations at epileptogenic foci, side effects of high systemic doses and that some potentially efficient substances do not pass the blood-brain barrier. To overcome these limitations, we tested the efficacy of local valproate (VPA)-containing polymer implants in a model of necocortical(More)
