This study is a single-blinded prospective longitudinal randomized controlled trial (RCT). The experiment took place over a period of eight weeks. Elderly participants were randomized into...
Purpose: The investigators wish to determine if a rehabilitation program for subjects with new, trans-tibial amputations that has the balance portion of the program augmented by the use of...
This study is an open label, adjunctive, proof of concept, pilot clinical trial. Pediatric patients with epilepsy and clinically significant anxiety will be recruited and if enrolled will ...
The purpose of this research study to investigate, classify, and quantify chronic cardiac rhythm disorders in three groups of patients with epilepsy (intractable focal epilepsy, controlled...
Epilepsy is a frequent group of diseases, affecting 1% of the general population with a higher incidence in children. Anti-epileptic drugs are used as part of the drug treatment. Even if c...
There is a link between breathing and balance and posture. When the inspiratory loads are increased by pathologies, there is a decrease of postural control. The increase of the inspiratory load on res...
This research investigates level of empowerment, decisional skills, and the perceived relationship with the clinician, of women in childbirth age, also in relationship with clinical variables such as ...
Lack of specialty board certification has been reported as a significant physician-level predictor of receiving a disciplinary action from a state medical board. This study investigated the associatio...
Cardiac mortality has increased in patients with epilepsy. Although majority of cardiac autonomic and ventricular function abnormalities were detected in ictal and postictal period, interictal epilept...
Research indicates that health service boards can influence quality of care. However, government reviews have indicated that board members may not be as effective as possible in attaining this goal. S...
A disorder characterized by the onset of myoclonus in adolescence, a marked increase in the incidence of absence seizures (see EPILEPSY, ABSENCE), and generalized major motor seizures (see EPILEPSY, TONIC-CLONIC). The myoclonic episodes tend to occur shortly after awakening. Seizures tend to be aggravated by sleep deprivation and alcohol consumption. Hereditary and sporadic forms have been identified. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p323)
A disorder characterized by recurrent episodes of paroxysmal brain dysfunction due to a sudden, disorderly, and excessive neuronal discharge. Epilepsy classification systems are generally based upon: (1) clinical features of the seizure episodes (e.g., motor seizure), (2) etiology (e.g., post-traumatic), (3) anatomic site of seizure origin (e.g., frontal lobe seizure), (4) tendency to spread to other structures in the brain, and (5) temporal patterns (e.g., nocturnal epilepsy). (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p313)
An anticonvulsant effective in tonic-clonic epilepsy (EPILEPSY, TONIC-CLONIC). It may cause blood dyscrasias.
An autosomal dominant inherited partial epilepsy syndrome with onset between age 3 and 13 years. Seizures are characterized by PARESTHESIA and tonic or clonic activity of the lower face associated with drooling and dysarthria. In most cases, affected children are neurologically and developmentally normal. (From Epilepsia 1998 39;Suppl 4:S32-S41)
Homeostatic control of the immune system by secretion of different cytokines by the Th1 and Th2 cells. The concentration dependent binding of the various cytokines to specific receptors determines the balance (or imbalance leading to disease).
