    OBJECTIVE: S: Mutations in LGI1 cause autosomal dominant partial epilepsy with auditory features (ADPEAF), a form of familial temporal lobe epilepsy with auditory ictal manifestations. The authors aimed to determine what proportion of ADPEAF families carries a mutation, to estimate the penetrance of identified mutations, and to identify clinical features that distinguish families with and without mutations.

    METHODS: The authors sequenced LGI1 in 10 newly described ADPEAF families and ...

    Stroke mortality is reported to be greater in blacks than in whites, but stroke incidence data for blacks and Hispanics are sparse. The aim of this study was to determine and compare stroke incidence rates among whites, blacks, and Hispanics living in the same urban community. A population-based incidence study was conducted to identify all cases of first stroke occurring in northern Manhattan, New York City, between July 1, 1993, and June 30, 1996. The population of this area was ...

    CONTEXT: Moderate alcohol consumption has been shown to be protective for coronary heart disease, but the relationship between moderate alcohol consumption and ischemic stroke is more controversial.

    OBJECTIVE: To determine the association between alcohol consumption and risk of ischemic stroke.

    DESIGN: Population-based case-control study conducted between July 1993 and June 1997.

    SETTING: Multiethnic population in northern Manhattan, New York, NY, aged 40 years or older.

    OBJECTIVE: To reassess the evidence for management issues related to the care of women with epilepsy (WWE) during pregnancy, including the risk of pregnancy complications or other medical problems during pregnancy in WWE compared to other women, change in seizure frequency, the risk of status epilepticus, and the rate of remaining seizure-free during pregnancy.

    METHODS: A 20-member committee including general neurologists, epileptologists, and doctors in pharmacy evaluated the available ...

    BACKGROUND: Transient symptoms in Alzheimer disease (AD) are frequent and include seizures, syncope, and episodes of inattention or confusion. The incidence of seizures in AD and predictors of which patients with AD might be more predisposed to them is based primarily on retrospective studies and is not well established.

    OBJECTIVE: To determine the incidence and predictors of new-onset unprovoked seizures.

    DESIGN: Prospective cohort study.

    SETTING: Three academic centers. Patients Four ...

    PURPOSE: To compare mortality and subsequent unprovoked seizure risk in a population-based study of acute symptomatic seizure and first unprovoked seizure due to static brain lesions.

    METHODS: We ascertained all first episodes of acute symptomatic seizure and unprovoked seizure due to central nervous system (CNS) infection, stroke, and traumatic brain injury (TBI). Subjects were residents of Rochester, Minnesota, identified through the Rochester Epidemiology Project's records-linkage ...

    PURPOSE: Women with epilepsy who become pregnant are commonly considered to be at high risk for complications during pregnancy or delivery. The offspring are also considered to have increased risk of perinatal mortality, congenital malformations, and maturational delay. Because few of these studies are population based, potential bias exists because of selection.

    BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The growing black and Hispanic populations in the United States call for studies of the rates and prognosis for cerebral infarction to help plan more focused prevention programs.

    METHODS: Using the Statewide Planning and Research Cooperative System, we obtained discharge data for 1,034 patients over age 39, who were hospitalized for stroke from 1983 to 1986, using four zip code areas of the ethnically mixed community of Northern Manhattan.

    RESULTS: Stroke ...

    The incidence of epilepsy and of all unprovoked seizures was determined for residents of Rochester, Minnesota U.S.A. from 1935 through 1984. Age-adjusted incidence of epilepsy was 44 per 100,000 person-years. Incidence in males was significantly higher than in females and was high in the first year of life but highest in persons aged > or = 75 years. Sixty percent of new cases had epilepsy manifested by partial seizures, and two thirds had no clearly identified antecedent. ...

    The medical records linkage system of the Rochester Project at the Mayo Clinic was used to identify births at Rochester hospitals from 1922 through 1976 to women with epilepsy and to the wives of men with epilepsy. The children were followed up to determine the incidence of congenital malformation and seizure disorders among them. In 133 births to women before the onset or after the remission of epilepsy, there were no major malformations. Among children born to mothers who had active ...

    Studies based on the Rochester Epidemiology Project medical records-linkage system have provided important insights into the epidemiology of epilepsy. The incidence of all convulsive disorders in Rochester, Minnesota, during a 50-year period exceeded 130 per 100,000 person-years. The age-adjusted incidence of epilepsy was 44 per 100,000 person-years; of a first unprovoked seizure, 61; and of acute symptomatic seizures excluding febrile convulsions, 31. In addition, 2% of the population ...

    BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Stroke risk factors have been determined in large part through epidemiological studies in white cohorts; as a result, race-ethnic disparities in stroke incidence and mortality rates remained unexplained. The aim in the present study was to compare the prevalence, OR, and etiological fraction (EF) of stroke risk factors among white, blacks, and Caribbean Hispanics living in the same urban community of northern Manhattan.

    METHODS: In this population-based incident ...

    BACKGROUND: Patients with a single unprovoked seizure have about a 35 percent risk of recurrence in the subsequent five years. We studied the risk of recurrence after two unprovoked seizures.

    METHODS: We prospectively followed 204 patients with a first unprovoked seizure from the day of the initial seizure. Information was obtained from patients (and verified by a review of their medical records) about the dates and circumstances of any subsequent seizures. The risk of a second, third, ...

    BACKGROUND: Black and Hispanic Americans have a greater risk of primary intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) than whites. Deep ICH is most often associated with hypertension, while lobar ICH is associated with cerebral amyloid angiopathy. The authors conducted a population-based incidence study to directly compare the incidence of deep vs lobar ICH in all three race-ethnic groups.

    METHODS: The authors used an active hospital and community surveillance program and autopsy reports to identify ...

    Little is known about outcome after cerebral infarction for different ethnic groups. Of 590 stroke patients hospitalized from 1983 to 1986 at the Neurological Institute, cerebral infarction over age 39 years occurred in 135 whites, 177 blacks, and 82 Hispanics. Outcome after cerebral infarction differed by ethnicity. The 1-month mortality rate was similar in whites and blacks and least in Hispanics. Whites had a slightly greater risk of recurrent stroke or death than blacks or Hispanics ...
