Characterization of postsurgical functional connectivity changes in temporal lobe epilepsy.

Seizure outcome after mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (mTLE) surgery is complex and diverse, even across patients with homogeneous presurgical clinical profiles. The authors hypothesized that this is du...

Are psychogenic nonepileptic seizures risk factors for a worse outcome in patients with refractory mesial temporal epilepsy submitted to surgery? Results of a retrospective cohort study.

The objective of this study was to verify if the presence of psychogenic nonepileptic seizures (PNES) could be a risk factor precluding corticoamygdalohippocampectomy (CAH) in patients with refractory...

Different patterns of white matter changes after successful surgery of mesial temporal lobe epilepsy.

To explore the dynamic changes of white matters following anterior temporal lobectomy (ATL) in mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE) patients who achieved seizure-free at two-year follow-up.

Is additional mesial temporal resection necessary for intractable epilepsy with cavernous malformations in the temporal neocortex?

Cavernous malformation (CM) in the temporal neocortex causes intractable epilepsy. Whether to resect additional mesial temporal structures in addition to the lesionectomy is a still controversial issu...

Risk Factors for Mortality in Pediatric Postsurgical versus Medical Severe Sepsis.

Sepsis is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality after surgery. Most studies regarding sepsis do not differentiate between patients who have had recent surgery and those without. Few data exist re...

SEEG Guided RF-TC v.s. ATL for mTLE With HS

Mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (mTLE) is the most classical subtype of temporal lobe epilepsy, which is the indication of surgical intervention after evaluation. Until now, anterior tempora...

Stereotactic Laser Ablation for Temporal Lobe Epilepsy

The study is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the Visualase MRI-guided laser ablation system for mesial temporal epilepsy (MTLE).

Evaluation And Risk Assessment For Persistent Postsurgical Pain After Breast Surgery

Pre-existing pain and severe postoperative pain are predictors of persistent pain after surgery, but a complete understanding on the development of persistent pain is still lacking. The st...

Early Surgical Intervention to Treat Epilepsy

The purpose of this trial is to compare the effectiveness of early surgical intervention for mesial temporal lobe epilepsy to continued treatment with antiepileptic drugs.

Randomized Controlled Trial of Hippocampal Stimulation for Temporal Lobe Epilepsy

Our primary goal is to determine whether hippocampal electrical stimulation (HS) is safe and more effective than simply implanting an electrode in the hippocampus without electrical stimul...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A localization-related (focal) form of epilepsy characterized by recurrent seizures that arise from foci within the temporal lobe, most commonly from its mesial aspect. A wide variety of psychic phenomena may be associated, including illusions, hallucinations, dyscognitive states, and affective experiences. The majority of complex partial seizures (see EPILEPSY, COMPLEX PARTIAL) originate from the temporal lobes. Temporal lobe seizures may be classified by etiology as cryptogenic, familial, or symptomatic (i.e., related to an identified disease process or lesion). (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p321)

A neurosurgical procedure that removes the anterior TEMPORAL LOBE including the medial temporal structures of CEREBRAL CORTEX; AMYGDALA; HIPPOCAMPUS; and the adjacent PARAHIPPOCAMPAL GYRUS. This procedure is generally used for the treatment of intractable temporal epilepsy (EPILEPSY, TEMPORAL LOBE).

A large family of structurally-related transcription factors that were originally discovered based upon their close sequence homology to an HMG-box domain found in SEX-DETERMINING REGION Y PROTEIN. Many SOX transcription factors play important roles in regulating CELL DIFFERENTIATION. The numerous members of this family are organized in several subgroups according to structural identities found within the proteins.

The presence of co-existing or additional diseases with reference to an initial diagnosis or with reference to the index condition that is the subject of study. Comorbidity may affect the ability of affected individuals to function and also their survival; it may be used as a prognostic indicator for length of hospital stay, cost factors, and outcome or survival.

A class of statistical procedures for estimating the survival function (function of time, starting with a population 100% well at a given time and providing the percentage of the population still well at later times). The survival analysis is then used for making inferences about the effects of treatments, prognostic factors, exposures, and other covariates on the function.
