In three patients sequential studies were performed of sensory and motor conduction after complete section and suture of the median nerve at the wrist and in one patient after partial section of the nerve. The sensory potential evoked by stimuli to digits III and I and recorded proximal to the suture line at the wrist appeared after a delay of three to four(More)
A double-blind study of the antiepileptic effect and side effects of carbamazepine (CARB) and diphenylhydantoin (DPH) was undertaken in 38 patients with psychomotor epilepsy and without grand mal epilepsy except for a single previous seizure. The patients were treated with CARB and DPH only, each in periods of 16 weeks and with a crossover of 4 weeks. The(More)
The effect of epidural analgesia with plain bupivacaine 0.5% on somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP) to electrical stimulation of the posterior tibial nerve was examined in six patients. Epidural analgesia significantly increased onset time and latencies of the early components in SEP, while the amplitudes decreased. These results suggest that SEP may be(More)
In a double 0lind study no difference was found between carbamazepine and diphenylhydantoin with regard to efficacy in preventing temporal lobe seizures, i.e. partial seizures with complex symptomatology, when the drugs were given without other medication for periods of 16 weeks, and when the serum concentrations were within selected therapeutic levels(More)
