Surgery for refractory epilepsy is widely used but the efficacy of this treatment for providing a seizure-free outcome and better quality of life remains unclear.This study aimed to update current evidence and to evaluate the effects of surgery on quality of life in patients with refractory epilepsy.A systematic review and meta-analysis of the literature(More)
Drug-resistance in several childhood epilepsy syndromes is common, and these patients may tolerate epilepsy surgery. In this study, the surgical outcomes of 24 pediatric patients with various intractable epilepsy syndromes and three patients with tuberous sclerosis were examined at Xinqiao hospital between 1997 and 2004. The study included nine cases of(More)
Neuronal nuclei (NeuN) is a well-recognized “marker” that is detected exclusively in post-mitotic neurons and was initially identified through an immunological screen to produce neuron-specific antibodies. Immunostaining evidence indicates that NeuN is distributed in the nuclei of mature neurons in nearly all parts of the vertebrate nervous system. NeuN is(More)
With rapid advances in wireless sensor networks and embedded computing technologies, various behaviour detection devices have arose and been applied in practical use for monitoring the situations of the elderly in order to ensure the safety of them. This paper aims to propose a behaviour detection system with a sensor board (iNEMO™ V2) and the iNEMO(More)
The efficacy of surgery for the treatment of epilepsy in patients with West syndrome secondary to tuberous sclerosis is unclear. The charts of 17 patients with tuberous sclerosis and secondary West syndrome who underwent a one-stage surgical resection with a combined palliative operative procedure were reviewed. Engel classification was used to classify the(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the clinical effect on motor impairment after elbow operation between electroacupuncture combined with rehabilitation and rehabilitation training. METHODS Fifty-three cases were randomized into an electroacupuncture combined with rehabilitation group (group A, 30 cases) and a rehabilitation group (group B, 23 cases). In group A,(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe clinical therapeutic effects of electroacupuncture, radiation of infrared rays plus passive exercise on movement disorders of shoulder joint after operation of fracture of surgical neck of humerous. METHODS Sixty cases were randomly divided into an acupuncture plus exercise group (n = 32) and an exercise therapy group (n = 28). The(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the clinical efficacy on the motor impairment of knee joint after tracture operation between the combined therapeutic method of relaxing needling manipulation and exercise therapy and the simple exercise therapy. METHODS Sixty-four patients after the operation for the fracture of femoral shaft were randomized into a relaxing needling(More)
Focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) is a major cause of intractable epilepsy in children however the mechanisms underlying the pathogenesis of FCD and FCD induced epilepsy remain unclear. Increasing evidence suggests that the large-pore ion channels, pannexin 1 (Panx1) and 2 (Panx2), are involved in epilepsy and brain development. In this study, we investigated(More)
AIM To investigate the application of neuronavigation in the implantation of depth electrodes in patients with epilepsy. MATERIAL AND METHODS Thirty-six patients with epilepsy who were implanted with depth electrodes using neuronavigation were assessed for accuracy of implantation and associated complications. RESULTS In the imaging navigation group,(More)
