  1. Canadian perspectives on the clinical actionability of neuroimaging in disorders of consciousness.

    Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences 42(2):96 (2015) PMID 25804248

    Acquired brain injury is a critical public health and socioeconomic problem in Canada, leaving many patients in vegetative, minimally conscious, or locked-in states, unresponsive and unable to communicate. Recent advances in neuroimaging research have demonstrated residual consciousness in a few...
  2. Early Anti-Coagulation after Ischemic Stroke due to Atrial Fibrillation is Safe and Prevents Recurrent Stroke.

    Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences 42(2):92 (2015) PMID 25740380

    Patients with acute cardio-embolic stroke from atrial fibrillation (AF) are at risk for recurrence with up to 50% of recurrent stroke occurring within two weeks of the index event. Anti-coagulation with heparinoids within 48 hours of stroke has been shown to increase risk of symptomatic intracra...
  3. Altered autonomic nervous system reactivity to pain in trigeminal neuralgia.

    Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences 42(2):125 (2015) PMID 25804249

    In the past two decades, there has been increasing evidence to suggest that trigeminal neuralgia (TN) may be linked to a dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system (ANS). The aim of the present study was to formally test this hypothesis by comparing the reactivity of the ANS to experimental pai...

    Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences 42(2):74 (2015) PMID 25804247

    We review the Saskatchewan Movement Disorders Program, which started in 1968 and has had the dual goals of patient care and research. The clinics are structured to collect research-worthy data including videos, longitudinal follow-up, and autopsy studies of patients seen in the clinics. At every...

  8. Osler on migraine.

    Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences 42(2):144 (2015) PMID 25721175

    William Osler's 1892 textbook The Principles and Practice of Medicine became the dominant medical text in the English-speaking world. Osler was labeled a therapeutic nihilist by some. The topic of migraine, including treatment, was succinctly covered in his text. The objectives of this study wer...
  9. Modern inhalational anesthetics for refractory status epilepticus.

    Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences 42(2):106 (2015) PMID 25572922

    Our goal was to perform a systematic review of the literature on the use of modern inhalational anesthetic agents for refractory status epilepticus and their impact on seizure control. All articles from MEDLINE, BIOSIS, EMBASE, Global Health, HealthStar, Scopus, Cochrane Library, the Internation...
  10. Marijuana: a time-honored but untested treatment for epilepsy.

    Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences 42(2):88 (2015) PMID 25715711

    The biology of the endocannabinoid system in the brain provides a possible basis for a beneficial pharmacological effect of marijuana on seizures. However, evidence for efficacy of cannabis treatment of epilepsy is anecdotal because no acceptable randomized controlled trials have been done. Prop...
