Abstract

To improve the diagnostic accuracy of electroencephalography (EEG) criteria for nonconvulsive status epilepticus (NCSE), external validation of the recently proposed Salzburg criteria is paramount. We performed an external, retrospective, diagnostic accuracy study of the Salzburg criteria, using EEG recordings from patients with and without a clinical suspicion of having NCSE.… Read More...

Thrombosis is the main pathogenesis of acute ischemic stroke (AIS). The main treatments for stroke either have limited efficacy or increase the risk of bleeding. ADAMTS13 (a disintegrin and metalloproteinase with a thrombospondin type 1 motif, member 13) is a metal protease that can effectively break down VWF (Von Willebrand Factor, VWF), the key factor in thrombus formation.… Read More...

The evolution of EEG/MEG source connectivity is both, a promising and controversial advance in the characterization of epileptic brain activity. In this narrative review we elucidate the potential of this technology to provide an intuitive view of the epileptic network at its origin, the different brain regions involved in the epilepsy, without the limitation of electrodes at the scalp level.… Read More...

Objective: To estimate alterations in neurometabolic profile of patients with early stage Parkinson’s disease (PD) by using a short echo-time whole brain magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging (wbMRSI) as possible biomarker for early diagnosis and monitoring of PD.
Methods: 20 PD patients in early stage (H&Y ≤ 2) without evidence of severe other diseases and 20 age and sex matched healthy controls underwent wbMRSI.… Read More...
