OBJECTIVE Like adults, many children suffering from intractable seizures benefit from surgical therapy. Although various reports indicate that early intervention may avoid severe developmental consequences often associ...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the tolerability and efficacy of the ictal and immediate postictal application of intranasal midazolam (in-MDZ) in adolescents and adults during video-electroencephalography (EEG) monitoring. ...

A widely accepted view is that wakefulness is a state in which the entire cortical mantle is persistently activated, and therefore desynchronized. Consequently, the EEG is dominated by low-amplitude, high-frequency flu...

An 18-year-old left-handed male harbored intractable medial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE) underwent fractionated gamma knife surgery (GKS) instead of open surgery, considering the mental retardation and diffuse cerebra...

Aicardi syndrome is a rare hereditary disorder that develops in only girls with the trilogy of nutatory epilepsy, callosal agenesis and chorioretinopathy. We experienced general anesthesia twice for a patient with Aica...

OBJECTIVE: We sought to describe complications after resection for meningioma with the use of longitudinal administrative data, which our group has shown recently to be superior to nonlongitudinal administrative data. ...
