Conclusion: Empirical results illustrate the superiority of the proposed DMR method to the DL_MVB and FFA in localizing brain short time activities. Significance: The proposed method can be utilized in source localization of epilepsy for presurgical clinical evaluation purpose and also in applications dealing with the localization of evoked potentials and fields.

Resumo A doen ça de Behçet (DB) é uma vasculite multissistêmica de etiologia desconhecida. O acometimento cardiovascular é bem descrito na literatura, sendo que a principal causa de morte na DB é secundária a complicações aneurismáticas. Relata-se aqui o caso de um paciente portador de DB com aneurisma de aorta abdominal reincidente, o qual foi corrigido por meio de endoprótese customizada. O tratamento ideal para portadores de DB ainda é bastante controverso e desafiador, tendo em vista as dificuldades técnicas e as recidivas frequen...

ConclusionsVisualization of hippocampal internal architecture (HIA) may be improved at 7 T MRI. HIA asymmetry is a significant predictor of laterality of seizure onset in TLE patients and has similar predictive value as hippocampal volume asymmetry, however, HIA asymmetry at 7 T does not have extra value in determining epilepsy lateralization and neither does predict surgical outcomes.

ConclusionThe efficacy of the combination therapy was not better than that of the monotherapy in achieving spasm freedom at 14-days, 49-days or 56-days and day-120 in the patients. Adding-on moderate-dose TPM did not help more children achieve spasm freedom and provided no benefit for prevention of IS and late-onset ES in short term. Higher-dose regimens of TPM might be more effective.
