Nonpharmacologic treatment options are effective in reducing seizures and improving quality of life without the negative side effects associated with antiepileptic drug (AED) therapy among pediatric epilepsy patients. One such treatment, vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) therapy, appears to be particularly effective among pediatric patients with refractory(More)
BACKGROUND Real-time, direct assessment of brain electrophysiology is critical for noninvasive functional mapping and for the identification of paroxysmal epileptiform abnormalities in the evaluation of patients for epilepsy surgery. Historically, electroencephalography (EEG) and evoked potentials (EPs) have performed these functions. However, both often(More)
OBJECTIVE The authors evaluated the sensitivity and selectivity of interictal magnetoencephalography (MEG) versus prolonged ictal and interictal scalp video-electroencephalography (V-EEG) in order to identify patient groups that would benefit from preoperative MEG testing. METHODS The authors evaluated 113 consecutive patients with medically refractory(More)
INTRODUCTION Silent Sinus Syndrome (SSS) is a rare pathology, characterized by retraction of the maxillary sinus walls, leading to enophthalmos, sometimes diplopia and midfacial depression. It is usually not associated with sinonasal symptoms. Sinus ventilation and drainage stops its progression, but usually cannot reverse the process. This empiric(More)
