  1. Perinatal Regionalization and Implications for Long-Term Health Outcomes in Cerebral Palsy.

    Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences 43(2):248 (2016) PMID 26790470

    Perinatal regionalization is linked to improved neonatal outcomes; however, the effects on long-term outcomes in cerebral palsy (CP) are not known. We estimate the effect of highest levels of neonatal care available at delivery on the risk of developing a nonambulatory CP status. Children with C...
  2. Gender and Age Determinants of Psychogenic Movement Disorders: A Clinical Profile of 73 Patients.

    The Canadian GILENYA® Go ProgramTM provides education and support to people with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis during fingolimod treatment. Data were collected and analyzed from the time of the first individual enrolled in March 2011 to March 31, 2014. Individuals were excluded if they ...
  9. Health & Economic Burden of Traumatic Brain Injury in the Emergency Department.

    Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences 43(2):238 (2016) PMID 26842131

    To evaluate epidemiological patterns and lifetime costs of traumatic brain injury (TBI) identified in the emergency department (ED) within a publicly insured population in Ontario, Canada, in 2009. A nationally representative, population-based database was used to identify TBI cases presenting t...
  10. The Long and Winding Road to Gamma-Amino-Butyric Acid as Neurotransmitter.

    Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences 43(2):219 (2016) PMID 26763167

    This review centers on the discoveries made during more than six decades of neuroscience research on the role of gamma-amino-butyric acid (GABA) as neurotransmitter. In doing so, special emphasis is directed to the significant involvement of Canadian scientists in these advances. Starting with t...
  11. StatNet Electroencephalogram: A Fast and Reliable Option to Diagnose Nonconvulsive Status Epilepticus in Emergency Setting.

    Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences 43(2):254 (2016) PMID 26864547

    The StatNet electrode set is a system that can be applied by a non-electroencephalogram (EEG) technologist after minimal training. The primary objectives of this study are to assess the quality and reliability of the StatNet recordings in comparison to the conventional EEG. Over 10 months, 19 pa...
  12. A Pilot Placebo Controlled Randomized Trial of Dexamethasone for Chronic Subdural Hematoma.

    Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences 43(2):284 (2016) PMID 26853325

    Current opinions regarding the use of dexamethasone in the treatment of chronic subdural hematomas (CSDH) are only based on observational studies. Moreover, the use of corticosteroids in asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic patient with this condition remains controversial. Here, we present dat...
  13. Adverse Clinical Effects of Botulinum Toxin Intramuscular Injections for Spasticity.

    Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences 43(2):298 (2016) PMID 26597813

    The adverse events (AEs) with botulinum toxin type-A (BoNTA), used for indications other than spasticity, are widely reported in the literature. However, the site, dose, and frequency of injections are different for spasticity when compared to the treatment for other conditions and hence the AEs...
