Ictal high-frequency oscillations and hyperexcitability in refractory epilepsy.
High-frequency oscillations (HFOs, 80-500Hz) from intracranial electroencephalography (EEG) may represent a biomarker of epileptogenicity for epilepsy. We explored the relationship between ictal HFOs and hyperexcitability with a view to improving sur

Application of 256-channel dense array electroencephalographic source imaging in presurgical workup of temporal lobe epilepsy.
This study evaluated the localization precision of 256-channel dense array electroencephalographic source imaging (dESI) in comparison to conventional noninvasive tools. In addition, the study was designed to analyze the relationship between the 256-

Long-term outcome and predictors of resective surgery prognosis in patients with refractory extratemporal epilepsy.
We analyzed the long-term postoperative outcome and possible predictive factors of the outcome in surgically treated patients with refractory extratemporal epilepsy.

Presurgical MR Imaging in Epilepsy.
Primary goal of magnetic resonance imaging in epilepsy patients is to detect epileptogenic lesions with small lesions best detectable on a 3D FLAIR SPACE sequence with 1 mm(3) voxels. Morphometric analysis of 3D T1-weighted data sets helps to find su

In patients with pharmacoresistant focal epilepsy, resection of the epileptic focus can lead to freedom from seizures or significant improvement in well-selected candidates. Localization of the epileptic focus with multimodal concordance is crucial f

Magnetoencephalography in the presurgical evaluation of epilepsy.
Magnetoencephalography (MEG) is an important tool in the presurgical evaluation of patients with medically refractory epilepsy. The appropriate utilization and interpretation of MEG studies can increase the proportion of patients who may be able to f

Recurrence risk of ictal asystole in epilepsy.
To determine the recurrence risk of ictal asystole (IA) and its determining factors in people with epilepsy.

Ictal body turning in focal epilepsy.
Despite the explanations of many lateralization findings, body turning in focal epilepsy has been rarely investigated. One of the aims of this study was to evaluate the role of ictal body turning in the lateralization of focal epilepsies. The records

Concept of epilepsy surgery and presurgical evaluation.
Epilepsy surgery is a well-accepted treatment for drug-resistant epilepsy. The success of the epilepsy surgery depends upon an appropriate presurgical evaluation process which should ensure the selection of suitable patients who are likely to become

The extratemporal lobe epilepsies in the epilepsy monitoring unit.
Extratemporal lobe epilepsies (ETLE) are characterized by the epileptogenic foci outside the temporal lobe. They have a wide spectrum of semiological presentation depending upon the site of origin. They can arise from frontal, parietal, occipital lob
