Hypsarrhythmia is the interictal EEG pattern most often associated with infantile spasms. We set out to evaluate the metabolic impact of hypsarrhythmia among patients with infantile spasms by contrasting regional cerebral metabolic activity among children with and without hypsarrhythmia.

Preeclampsia is a pregnancy-related hypertensive disorder with endothelial dysfunction. Impaired cerebral autoregulation may lead to symptomatic cerebral hyperperfusion, which sometimes manifests not ...
Measurement-device-independent quantum key distribution (MDI-QKD) can eliminate all detector side channels and it is practical with current technology. Previous implementations of MDI-QKD all used two...
We report the case of a 23-year-old woman with a history of cystic fibrosis and bilung transplantation, who presented clinically cervical swollen lymph nodes with alteration of her general state. F-FD...
Rapid ventricular pacing (RVP) can be used to produce short periods of flow arrest during dissection or rupture of a cerebral aneurysm but carries the risk of inducing cerebral ischemia. This study ev...
Burn injury results in a triad of inter-related adaptive responses: a systemic inflammatory response, a stress response, and a consequent hypermetabolic state which supports the former two. Details of...
Questionnaire to be completed by patients coming for PET to identify the predictive factors of physiological hypermetabolism of the anal canal
Introduction: About 50-60% of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is characterized by hypermetabolism, defined as 10% or more excess resting energy expenditure (REE) compared to theoretica...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate safety and efficacy of corneal cross-linking and photorefractive keratectomy for refractive correction in patients with bilateral asymmetric topogr...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of asymmetric spinal stabilization exercise on scoliosis
This study will assess changes in visual acuity and corneal symmetry after corneal collagen cross-linking (CXL) of asymmetric corneas.
A rare central nervous system demyelinating condition affecting children and young adults. Pathologic findings include a large, sharply defined, asymmetric focus of myelin destruction that may involve an entire lobe or cerebral hemisphere. The clinical course tends to be progressive and includes dementia, cortical blindness, cortical deafness, spastic hemiplegia, and pseudobulbar palsy. Concentric sclerosis of Balo is differentiated from diffuse cerebral sclerosis of Schilder by the pathologic finding of alternating bands of destruction and preservation of myelin in concentric rings. Alpers' Syndrome refers to a heterogeneous group of diseases that feature progressive cerebral deterioration and liver disease.

Bleeding into one or both CEREBRAL HEMISPHERES including the BASAL GANGLIA and the CEREBRAL CORTEX. It is often associated with HYPERTENSION and CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA.
A heterogeneous group of sporadic or familial disorders characterized by AMYLOID deposits in the walls of small and medium sized blood vessels of CEREBRAL CORTEX and MENINGES. Clinical features include multiple, small lobar CEREBRAL HEMORRHAGE; cerebral ischemia (BRAIN ISCHEMIA); and CEREBRAL INFARCTION. Cerebral amyloid angiopathy is unrelated to generalized AMYLOIDOSIS. Amyloidogenic peptides in this condition are nearly always the same ones found in ALZHEIMER DISEASE. (from Kumar: Robbins and Cotran: Pathologic Basis of Disease, 7th ed., 2005)
Pathological conditions of intracranial ARTERIES supplying the CEREBRUM. These diseases often are due to abnormalities or pathological processes in the ANTERIOR CEREBRAL ARTERY; MIDDLE CEREBRAL ARTERY; and POSTERIOR CEREBRAL ARTERY.
Radiography of the ventricular system of the brain after injection of air or other contrast medium directly into the cerebral ventricles. It is used also for x-ray computed tomography of the cerebral ventricles.
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
