OBJECTIVE This investigation quantified the relative benefits of binaural CI arrangements (i.e., bilateral, bimodal) for three binaural phenomena (i.e., binaural squelch, binaural summation, head-shadow effect) and sensitivity of two speech-recognition test paradigms (i.e., adaptive and fixed). DESIGN A repeated-measures meta-analytical approach was used(More)
Familial frontal epilepsy has been recently described in six pedigrees. All families reported show autosomal dominant inheritance with incomplete penetrance. Affected individuals develop predominantly nocturnal seizures with frontal lobe semiology. In 1959, a genetic mouse model for partial epilepsy, the El mouse, was reported. In the El mouse, a major(More)
A choroid plexus papilloma was found in the right lateral ventricle of a five-month-old boy. Though it was associated with an important communicating hydrocephalus, it was seen at operation to be freely mobile and did not directly obstruct the flow of the cerebrospinal fluid. Computerized axial tomography was the most helpful para-clinical investigation for(More)
A six year old girl complained of sudden severe headache, became hemiplegic and unconscious. A right carotid arteriogram revealed an obstruction of the right anterior cerebral artery and many sulvian branches. Death occurred four days later. At autopsy, a recent softening of nearly all the right middle cerebral arterial territory was found. Thrombus filled(More)
Two patients presented with repeated bouts of meningitis. RISA cisternography established the diagnosis in both cases. An intranasal meningoencephalocele was the cause of these infections. Frontal craniotomy and section of the peduncular connection of the meningoencephalocele and sealing of the bony defect was successfully performed in both cases.(More)
