Eye closure sensitivity in juvenile myoclonic epilepsy and its effect on prognosis.
We included 76 JME patients with a minimum follow-up of one year and evaluated a total of 254 EEGs to obtain evidence of ECS. The patients were grouped according to their response to treatment, and these subgroups were compared in relation to ECS and other clinical and EEG features. There were 12 pa...
Intellectual functioning in children with epilepsy: Frontal lobe epilepsy, childhood absence epilepsy and benign epilepsy with centro-tempor...
The purpose of our study is to describe intellectual functioning in three common childhood epilepsy syndromes - frontal lobe epilepsy (FLE), childhood absence epilepsy (CAE) and benign epilepsy with centro-temporal spikes (BECTS). And also to determine the influence of epilepsy related variables, ty...
Epidemiology of uncontrolled epilepsy in the Al-Kharga District, New Valley, Egypt.
Despite advances in treating epilepsy, uncontrolled epilepsy continues to be a major clinical problem. Therefore, this work aimed to study the epidemiology of uncontrolled epilepsy in Al-Kharga District, New Valley.

Characteristics of headache in children with epilepsy.
The association of headache with seizures is well known to neurologists but poorly understood. The purpose of this prospective study was to evaluate the types and frequency of seizure-associated headaches among pediatric patients with epilepsy, and to identify their risk factors with special attenti...
Response to "Vagus nerve stimulation: urgent need for the critical reappraisal of clinical effectiveness".
Reasons for uncontrolled seizures in adults; the impact of pseudointractability.
We investigated the various possible reasons for uncontrolled seizures in patients 18 years of age and older to determine the impact of pseudointractability. We also tried to investigate the various forms of pseudointractability. In this cross-sectional study, all patients 18 years of age and older...
Granule cell dispersion is associated with memory impairment in right mesial temporal lobe epilepsy.
We analyzed the association of granule cell dispersion (GCD) with memory performance, clinical data and surgical outcome in a series of patients with mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE) and mesial temporal sclerosis (MTS). Hippocampal specimens from 54 patients with MTLE (27 patients with right MTL...
The efficacy and safety of retigabine and other adjunctive treatments for refractory partial epilepsy: a systematic review and indirect comp...
We explored its efficacy and tolerability relative to selected antiepileptic drugs (AEDs). A systematic review was conducted to identify placebo-controlled trials of RTG and selected AEDs approved for use in a similar position in the management pathway of partial epilepsy (eslicarbazepine acetate [E...
Corpus callosotomy for treatment of pediatric refractory status epilepticus.
Medically refractory status epilepticus (RSE) causes high morbidity and mortality in children. There are no evidence-based guidelines for treatment. Epilepsy surgery is a treatment option for RSE. We describe a 9-year-old boy treated successfully for RSE with complete corpus callosotomy (CC). Epilep...
