We report on the preliminary clinical and electrophysiological aspects of an in-patient possibly presenting epilepsia partialis continua (Koshevnikov). We discuss the different etiologies and emphasize on the possible idiopathic form in this case.
The basic characteristic of the techniques generally known as meshless methods is the attempt to reduce or even to eliminate the need for a discretization (at least, not in the way normally associated with traditional finite element techniques) in the context of numerical solutions for boundary and/or initial value problems. The interest in meshless methods… (More)
The purpose of this work is to compare and assess, more in terms of computational efficiency than in terms of accuracy, three alternative implementations of a boundary formulation based on the Trefftz method for linear elastostatics, namely a collocation-based and two Galerkin-based approaches. A finite element approach is used in the derivation of the… (More)
Only recently, advanced direct volume visualization techniques have been widely used due to the availability of low cost hardware accelerators; such techniques have a great potential of use for many applications of the virtual reality in medicine. We proposed and implemented a low cost system for interactive and stereoscopic 3D visualization of the full… (More)
The authors present a case of bilateral tonic pupil and discuss clinical and physiopathological aspects of this syndrome. They discuss some elements necessary for the understanding of the etiopathogenesis of the disease.
