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 Paracentesis for malignant ascites is usually performed as an in-patient procedure, with a median length of stay (LoS) of 3-5 days, with intermittent clamping of the drain due to a perceived risk of hypotension. In this study, we assessed the safety of free drainage and the feasibility and cost-effectiveness of daycase paracentesis. METHOD(More)
Stroke is a leading cause of death worldwide and is associated with significant morbidity in survivors. Early thrombolytic therapy in acute ischaemic stroke has been shown to dramatically improve patient outcomes. Although the age-adjusted incidence of stroke is 5-10 times greater in haemodialysis patients, the use of thrombolysis for this indication in(More)
