  • Failed epilepsy surgery: is this the end'
    • Authors: Riëm El Tahry; Irene Zhong Wang
      Pages: 433 - 440
      Abstract: Resective epilepsy surgery can lead to sustained seizure control in 70–80% of patients evaluated for epilepsy surgery, indicating that up to 30% of patients still have recurrent seizures after surgery. Definitions of failed epilepsy surgery vary amongst studies. This review focuses on seizure outcome predictors after reoperation, possible mechanisms of failure and best management for this difficult patient population.

  • Evaluation of benign afebrile convulsions in 16 children with rotavirus
    • Authors: Alaaddin Yorulmaz; Sadiye Sert; Fatma Hilal Yilmaz
      Pages: 441 - 445
      Abstract: In this study, we aimed to investigate the demographic, clinical, and laboratory findings of the patients hospitalized with rotavirus gastroenteritis-related afebrile seizure, retrospectively. The study population consisted of 16 patients (9 girls and 7 boys) with a mean age of 13.81 ± 5.98 months (age range 6–26). The male/female ratio was 0.77. None of the patients had any psychomotor developmental retardation. Neurological examinations of all the patients were normal. There were 7 patients with generalized tonic (43.75%), 8 generalized tonic–clonic (50%), and 1 focal seizure (6.25%). The duration of the seizures varied at a range of 2–7 min (mean 3.68 ± 1.35 min). The period between the onset of the clinical findings of the rotavirus infection and the occurrence of the seizures was ranged from 12 to 48 h (mean 31.5 ± 12.2 h). The prognosis of the rotavirus gastroenteritis-related afebrile convulsions was generally benign. Rotavirus infection should be taken into consideration in infants with gastroenteritis and afebrile convulsions.

  • Stroke awareness in Korean high school students
    • Authors: Hyunyoung Park; Julie Jeong; HakSeung Lee; Sang-Hak Lee; Seung-Han Suk
      Pages: 455 - 459
      Abstract: Public awareness is essential for the early diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of stroke. In particular, young adults represent an important avenue for increasing awareness and precluding the adoption of unhealthy, risk-increasing behaviors. This study was the first to investigate the basic knowledge of Korean adolescents about stroke and evaluate the improvement of this knowledge after an educational lecture. In total, 1269 high school students were instructed on the risk factors, symptoms, diagnosis, and management of stroke. Knowledge was evaluated before education (Pre-E), immediately after the lecture (Post-E1), and during a 2-week follow-up (Post-E2), using a questionnaire. Overall, we found that students’ knowledge increased after the educational session. On the questionnaire section pertaining to stroke risk factors, out of nine possible points, the mean scores were 3.97, 5.28, and 5.10, on the Pre-E, Post-E1, and Post-E2 tests, respectively, indicating a significant improvement (p < 0.001). Additionally, students who reported that they paid attention during the lecture performed better, and scored 4.29, 6.32, and 6.40, on the Pre-E, Post-E1, and Post-E2 tests, respectively, again indicating a significant improvement (p < 0.001). Our findings indicate that incorporating a stroke education program into school curriculums will enhance the knowledge of Korean adolescents. Implementing this type of program is critical as it may reduce behavior associated with increased stroke risk, and more effort is needed to develop educational methods for engaging students and increasing their concentration during these programs.

      Abstract: The cardiovascular manifestations of acute ischemic stroke have been well known. Several electrocardiography (ECG) abnormalities have been reported in patients following acute stroke, including QT interval prolongation, ST segment deviation and T-wave changes. This study aimed to investigate the changes in transmyocardial repolarization parameters, in ischemic stroke patients. The study is a prospective, blind, and controlled clinical study. The patients without cardiac disease who received ischemic stroke diagnoses were included in the study. ECG was received from the patients in the first hour and 72 h. The P, QT, T p-e, T p-e dispersion, and the T p-e/QT ratio were calculated. Moreover, fifty-five stroke patients and 35 control subjects were included to the study. All dispersion values and T p-e/QTc ratio in patients group were higher than those of control group (p < 0.05 for all values). When evaluated between ECGs’ on first and third days, it was found that decreasing on all dispersion values and T p-e/QTc ratio in ECGs on third day than ECGs on first day (p < 0.05 for all values). QT, QTc, and T p-e dispersions values in patients who have insular lobe involvement were higher than those of patients who do not have insular lobe involvement (p < 0.001 for all values). In this study, we showed that acute stroke increases that P d, QTd, QTcd and new repolarization markers T p-e and T p-e/QTc, during first 24 and 72 h in acute stroke patients without cardiovascular disease compared with the control group. The physicians should be aware about ventricular dysrhythmias in patients with ischemic stroke and these patients closely observed with cardiac monitoring, especially within first 24 h, and especially patients with insular lobe involvement.

      Abstract: In this study, we evaluated persistent cognitive deficits in whiplash injury (WI) patients and compared these to cognitive functioning in mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) patients and healthy controls (HC). Sixty-one patients suffering from a WI were compared with 57 patients suffering from a MTBI and with 30 HC. They were examined with an extensive neuropsychological test battery assessing attention, memory, and visuospatial and executive functions. In both patient groups, participants showed persistent cognitive symptoms (more than 6 months post-injury). The two patient groups did not differ significantly with regard to measurements of attention, memory, and visuospatial and executive functions. The WI group, as compared to the HC group, was found to be significantly more deficient in speed of performance during sustained and divided attention, focused attention, alternating attention, the storage of new auditory-verbal unrelated information into memory, the long-term delayed recall of stored auditory-verbal related information from memory, abstract reasoning and accuracy of performance during planning and problem solving. No differences could be found between both groups concerning speed of information processing, visuospatial abilities and verbal fluency.

  • Effect of cerebrolysin on gross motor function of children with cerebral
           palsy: a clinical trial
    • Authors: Jafar Nasiri; Faezeh Safavifar
      Pages: 501 - 505
      Abstract: Gross motor dysfunction is considered as the most challenging problem in cerebral palsy (CP). It is proven that improvement of gross motor function could reduce CP-related disabilities and provide better quality of life in this group of patients. Therefore, the aim of this trial is to evaluate the effectiveness of cerebrolysin (CBL) on gross motor function of children with CP who are undergoing treatment. In this clinical trial study, paediatric patients aged 18–75 months with spastic diplegic or quadriplegic cerebral palsy, who were under rehabilitation therapy, were selected and randomly allocated in control and CBL groups. Patients in CBL group underwent treatment with standard rehabilitation therapy plus CBL. The latter was administrated intramuscularly as a single daily dose of 0.1 cc/kg for 10 days and then continued weekly for 4 months. Gross motor function of participants in the two studied groups, before and after trial, was evaluated and compared using the validated Persian version of gross motor function classification system-expanded and revised (GMFCS-E&R). During this trial, 108 patients with CP were evaluated for eligibility. From these, 50 patients were enrolled and randomly allocated in the CBL and control groups. Four months after trial, the mean level of GMFCS decreased significantly in the two groups (P < 0.05). However, it was significantly lower in the CBL group than in the control group (2.1 vs. 3.16, P < 0.05). The results of this trial indicated that CBL could improve gross motor function in patients with CP. This finding is consistent with neurotrophic and neuroprotective effects of CBL, which have been reported in various clinical trials in other neurological disorders. Further studies are recommended to establish the value of continued neuroprotection and to determine the pharmacokinetics/dynamics of CBL in this group of patients.

      Pages: 507 - 513
      Abstract: Clinical, neuroimaging, and laboratory features are not specific enough to establish the etiological diagnosis of the acute inflammatory myelitis (AIM). Longitudinally extensive transverse myelitis (LETM) seen on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been associated with a poor functional prognosis. The aim of this study was to assess the functional outcomes of a first AIM event comparing patients with LETM vs. no LETM on MRI and to report the differential diagnosis. Clinical, radiological, biochemical aspects were collected, and Winner–Hughes Functional Disability Scale (WHFDS) was performed after 3 and 6 months. Centromedullary lesions were associated with LETM, lateral lesions with partial lesion (PL), and brain MRI lesions with multiple sclerosis and acute encephalomyelitis disseminated. LETM patients were associated with a worse functional outcome as the need of a wheelchair after 3 and 6 months (OR = 7.61 p = 0.01; OR 4.8 p = 0.04, respectively), a walker or cane (OR = 11.0 p = 0.002, OR = 4.3 p = 0.03, respectively). In addition, we found a correlation between LETM and acute complete transverse myelitis and PL with acute partial transverse myelitis (83.3 and 90.9%, respectively; p < 0.0001). In conclusion, AIM is a heterogeneous syndrome from an etiological point of view and LETM patients had worse functional prognosis compared with PL after 3 and 6 months.

      Abstract: Visual system pathway dysfunction has been postulated in migraineurs. We wanted to investigate if any difference exists interictally in visual attention and visual evoked habituation of frequently attacked migraineurs compared to the healthy control group. The effects of 3-month prophylactic migraine treatment on these parameters were also assessed. The migraineurs at headache-free interval (n = 52) and age, sex-matched healthy controls (n = 35) were compared by habituation response to 10 blocks of repetitive pattern-reversal visual stimuli (each block consisted 100 responses). The amplitude changes of 5th and 10th blocks were further compared with that of block 1 to assess the response of habituation (i.e., decrease) or potentiation (i.e., increase). The level of sustained visual attention was assessed by Cancellation test. Migraineurs were randomized to three different preventive treatments: propranolol 40 mg tid, flunarizine 5 mg bid, or topiramate 50 mg bid. After 3 months of preventive treatment, migraineurs data were compared with their baseline values. The groups did not differ by sex and age. In electrophysiological studies, the habituation ability observed in the healthy group was not observed in migraineurs. However, it was restored 3 months after preventive treatment. In migraineurs, compared to their baseline values, the distorted visual attention parameters also improved after treatment. All drugs were effective. The loss of habituation ability and low visual attention performance in migraineurs can be restored by migraine preventive treatment. This electrophysiological study accompanied by neuropsychological test may aid an objective and quantitative assessment tool for understanding migraine pathophysiology.

      Pages: 531 - 536
      Abstract: Migraine and asthma are comorbid chronic disorders with episodic attacks thought to involve inflammatory and neurological mechanisms. The objective of the present study is to investigate the relationship of asthma features between the asthma patients with migraine and those without migraine headache. A cross-sectional study was conducted from October 2015 to June 2016. Physician-diagnosed asthma patients aged 18 years and above were included. Demographic data, pulmonary function test and treatment of asthma were recorded. Asthma control was assessed using the asthma control test (ACT) and asthma control questionnaire (ACQ). The diagnosis of migraine was made by the neurologist with face-to face examinations based on the International Classification of Headache Disorders, third edition beta (ICHD-III-beta) criteria. Data about the age at onset, frequency of headache attacks, duration of headache attack, the presence of aura, and severity of headache were recorded. The severity of headache was evaluated using visual analogue scale (VAS). Overall 121 asthma patients were included in this study. Migraine was found to be present in 32 (26.4%) of patients. No statistically significant difference was found between asthma group and asthma with migraine groups in terms of pulmonary function test parameters. The mean ACT score in asthma with migraine patients group was significantly lower than the asthma groups. Morever, in the group asthma with migraine, a negative significant correlations were found between ACT scores with VAS scores. This study demonstrates that migraine headache may be associated with poor asthma control. On the other hand, it should not be forgotten that ACT is a subjective test and can be affected from by many clinical parameters.

  • Potential risk factors for vitamin D levels in medium- and long-term use
           of antiepileptic drugs in childhood
    • Authors: Edibe Pempegül Yildiz; Şükran Poyrazoglu; Gonca Bektas; Aslı Derya Kardelen; Nur Aydinli
      Abstract: Abstract Antiepileptic drugs (AED) have potential side effects through vitamin-D. Prevalence of vitamin D insufficiency and potential risk factors for the longitudinal changes of vitamin D levels compared to its baseline levels under AED treatment were investigated in this study. This retrospective study includes patients whose AED therapy were started in only autumn months, between 2000 and 2014. Detailed assessment of neurologic diagnosis and brain MRI findings, ambulatory status, types and durations of AED treatment, and baseline bone health blood tests (vitamin-D, alkaline phosphatase, calcium, and phosphate levels) were obtained on all patients. Vitamin-D deficiency was defined as 25(OH)D <20 ng/mL, while vitamin-D insufficiency was defined as 25(OH)D between 21 and 29 ng/mL. A total of 172 children (mean age 9.6 ± 4.3 years) were followed up 5.3 years in average (range 1–14.7). The mean baseline 25(OH)D level was decreased from 24.4 ± 11.6 to 19.6 ± 10.7 ng/mL at the last follow up. The mean change in the vitamin-D levels (ΔD-vitamin) was −4.8 ng/mL (p = 0.003). The rate of vitamin-D deficiency was 54% and insufficiency was 25%. Multivariate logistic regression analysis identified only long-term use of AEDs as a risk factor for the longitudinal decrease. Monotherapy with valproic acid (n = 45), carbamazepine (n = 20), levetiracetam (n = 10) and phenobarbital (n = 12) was compared with each other. There was no difference in terms of longitudinal changes in 25(OH)D levels. In the treatment of childhood epilepsy, 25(OH)D levels should be monitored, especially when long-term AED used, in order to prevent D-hypovitaminosis.
