Myotonic dystrophy type 1 is caused by the expansion of a CTG repeat in the 3' UTR of the DMPK gene. A length exceeding 50 CTG triplets is pathogenic. Intermediate alleles with 35-49 triplets are not disease-causing but show instability in intergenerational transmissions. We report on the identification of multiple patients with different patterns of CCG(More)
| An information-theoretic approach for studying synchronization phenomena in experimental time series is presented and demonstrated in analysis of EEG recordings of an epileptic patient. Two levels of synchronization leading to seizures are quantiied and \directions of information ow" (drive-response relationships) are identiied.
Phonetically balanced mono and disyllabic Classical Arabic word lists were chosen to construct a Saudi Arabic speech test for children. These words were taken from children's stories. They were first evaluated by primary and pre-school children in the urban and rural areas of the Province and then divided in eight subgroups of 10 words each. The(More)
The goal of this review is to summarize the rationale for and feasibility of hippocampal sparing techniques during brain irradiation. Radiotherapy is the most effective non-surgical treatment of brain tumors and with the improvement in overall survival for these patients over the last few decades, there is an effort to minimize potential adverse effects(More)
We performed a retrospective, multicenter, open-label study to evaluate the efficacy of vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) in all patients in the Czech Republic who have received this treatment for at least 5 years (n=90). The mean last follow-up was 6.6+/-1.1 years (79+/-13 months). The median number of seizures among all patients decreased from 41.2(More)
Charcot-Marie-Tooth neuropathy type 1C (CMT1C) is an autosomal dominant demyelinating peripheral neuropathy caused by missense mutations in the small integral membrane protein of lysosome/late endosome (SIMPLE) gene. To investigate the prevalence of SIMPLE mutations, we screened a cohort of 152 probands with various types of demyelinating or axonal and pure(More)
Temporal lobe surgery bears the risk of a decline of neuropsychological functions. Stereotactic radiofrequency amygdalohippocampectomy (SAHE) represents an alternative to mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE) surgery. This study compared neuropsychological results with MRI volumetry of the residual hippocampus. We included 35 patients with drug-resistant(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The present study aims to assess the diversity and distribution of cytotypes of Aster amellus in central and eastern Europe, contributing with data to improve understanding of the evolutionary dynamics of the contact zone between diploids and hexaploids of this polyploid complex. METHODS Large-scale cytotype screening of 4720(More)
Timing of radiotherapy for low-grade gliomas is still controversial due to concerns of possible adverse late effects. Prevention of possible late cognitive sequelae by hippocampal avoidance has shown promise in phase II trials. A patient with progressive low-grade glioma with gradual dedifferentiation into anaplastic astrocytoma is presented along with(More)
Minimally invasive percutaneous single trajectory stereotactic radiofrequency amygdalohippocampectomy was used to treat mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE). The aim of the study was to evaluate complications and effectiveness of this procedure. A group of 51 patients with MTLE was treated using stereotactic thermo-lesion of amygdalohippocampal complex(More)
