The 24 h time course of intracranial temperature, recorded subdurally at the parahippocampal gyrus in six patients (19 24 h periods), exhibited a prominent 24 h rhythm with its crest located at 20-21 h. The declining trend of intracranial temperature between lights off and sleep onset persisted in the first nonREM sleep episode (studied in two patients,(More)
Evocation of epileptiform activity by DC magnetic fields of between 0.9 and 1.8 millitesla (mT) has been demonstrated in 6 epileptic patients undergoing presurgical evaluation. The activity was monitored by electroencephalography (EEG) recording from both electrodes attached to the scalp as well as from intracranial electrodes inserted via the foramen(More)
BACKGROUND Vascular access for haemodialysis is achieved by tunnelled central venous catheter (CVC) in at least 23% of prevalent patients in the UK, Canada and the USA. Use of CVCs is associated with an increased incidence of venous stenosis that can progressively limit future vascular access routes. Lack of conventional venous access routes mandates the(More)
