This study aimed to investigate the long-term outcome in seizure-free patients and to explore the risk factors of seizure relapse following antiepileptic drug (AED) withdrawal.
The paper presents a long-term follow-up study of VNS patients, analyzing seizure outcome, medication changes, and surgical problems.
Point shear wave elastography is an ultrasonography technique used to evaluate tissue elasticity. We examined whether placental elasticity is useful for predicting the onset of pre-eclampsia. Two hund...
Despite the availability of a broad range of treatments for epilepsy, a significant proportion of patients have ongoing seizures. This study aims to characterize the drug resistant population and to r...
Pre-eclampsia and eclampsia are common causes of serious morbidity and death. Calcium supplementation may reduce the risk of pre-eclampsia, and may help to prevent preterm birth. This is an update of ...
The primary aim is to establish the effectiveness of plasma PlGF measurement in reducing maternal morbidity (with assessment of perinatal safety in parallel) in women presenting with suspe...
Investigators will test a novel system of integrated care, to promote the use of the WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION Guidelines for the management of pre-eclampsia and initiate the use of a stru...
Pre-eclampsia is a heterogeneous multisystem disorder that complicates 2-8% of pregnancies and remains a leading cause of maternal and perinatal mortality and morbidity. Pre-eclampsia is ...
Pre-eclampsia is an hypertensive disorder appearing during pregnancy, inducing serious maternal, fetal and neonatal mortality and morbidity. Podocyn could be identified in the urine, befor...
For many years, there has been interest in the question of whether a special diet of some sort could be used to help control epileptic seizures. The ketogenic diet has been used since the ...
A disorder characterized by recurrent episodes of paroxysmal brain dysfunction due to a sudden, disorderly, and excessive neuronal discharge.
