Neurology

Neurology is the branch of medicine concerned with the study and treatment of disorders of the nervous system. The nervous system is a complex, sophisticated system that regulates and coordinates body activities. It has two major divisions: The central nervous system: the brain and the spinal cord.

A general practice doctor might make a referral to a neurologist if they believe that an individual shows signs of a neurological problem. Neurological issues encompass a broad range of conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease, diabetic neuropathy, headache, and nerve damage.

Research Projects

  1. Tremor Presenting in Infants and Children Aged less than 2 Years

    18/01/2022

    Tremor with onset at age <2 years follows a benign course, with many patients requiring no treatment and outgrowing the disorder.

  2. Potential Benefit of Add-on Δ9-Tetrahydrocannabinol in Pediatric Drug-Resistant Epilepsy: A Case Series

    29/06/2021

    Based on our experiences and reports in the literature, we propose that, in patients who fail management with an initial trial of high-dose CBD-focused therapy, there may be a role for add-on THC-focused formulations.

  3. Multidisciplinary Practice Variations of Anti-Thrombotic Strategies for Free Tissue Transfers

    23/06/2021

    There are diverse practice variations in anti-thrombotic strategies for free tissue transfers and a difference in perceived risk factors for flap failure that may affect patient management.

  4. Bibliometric Analysis of Neurology Articles Published in General Medicine Journals

    15/04/2021

    Compared with other specialties, neurology-based articles are published more frequently in general medicine journals.

  5. Not so Shocking: Electromyography in Pediatrics Remains Feasible and Diagnostically Useful

    01/01/2021

    Overall NCS/EMG is well tolerated and able to be performed without sedation in children of all ages.

  6. Continuous EEG in a pediatric intensive care unit: adherence to monitoring criteria and barriers to adequate implementation

    01/01/2021

    we strongly advocate for a routine screening for cEEG monitoring indications as part of the PICU admission process, and a care model allowing for cEEG initiation around-the-clock.

  7. Tuberous sclerosis complex associated intracranial lesion found by antenatal ultrasound

    22/04/2020

    Though there are no reports of sensitivity of neurosonography for the antenatal detection of intracranial abnormalities associated with TSC, our case suggests that antenatal ultrasound could be used as a screening modality for antenatal diagnosis of TSC.
