We report the results of interictal and ictal HIPDM-SPECT brain imaging in 34 patients who eventually underwent temporal lobectomy for treatment of medically intractable complex partial seizures. Interictal studies revealed decreased regional cerebral perfusion (rCP) in the temporal lobe corresponding to the eventual site of surgery in 73% of the patients.(More)
Atrial fibrillation is an abnormal heart rhythm affecting the upper chambers of the heart in which uncoordinated electrical depolarizations lead to ineffective contractions. Approximately five million patients in the US have atrial fibrillation, and this number is expected to double to 10 million over the next 30 years. Advancing age is a major risk factor(More)
Interictal and ictal HIPDM-SPECT brain scans were obtained in 38 patients who eventually underwent temporal lobectomy for treatment of medically intractable complex partial seizures (CPS). Interictal studies revealed decreased regional cerebral perfusion (rCP) in the temporal lobe corresponding to the eventual site of surgery in 76% of the patients.(More)
