- Localisation value of ictal arterial spin-labelled sequences in partial seizures
Neurology Department, Vall, d Hebron University Hospital, Barcelona, Spain
Epileptic Disord 13:336-9. 2011
..Our findings suggest that focal hyperperfusion, as observed by ASL, may have localising value in temporal epilepsies when performed in the ictal period...
- [Polycythaemia as a ready factor of transitory global amnesia]
Servicio de Neurologia, Hospital Vall d Hebron, Barcelona
Neurologia 20:317-20. 2005
..In the TGA a hypoperfusion of the temporal brain hemisphere has been documented and this can be a leading mechanism, so we propose that polycythaemia could ready to suffer a TGA...

Epilepsia 49:1465-9. 2008
..In patients with ASE, lesions on DWI in the temporo-parietal cortex and pulvinar nucleus combined with local hyperperfusion can be observed, even when they appear distant from the epileptic focus or the language areas...
- Diagnosis of epileptic syndrome after a new onset seizure and its correlation at long-term follow-up: longitudinal study of 131 patients from the emergency room
Neurology Department, Vall d Hebron Hospital, Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain
Epilepsy Res 97:30-6. 2011

- [A study of right-left shunt in transient global amnesia]
J de Francisco
Servicio de Neurologia, Universidad Autonoma de Barcelona, Hospital Universitario Vall d Hebron, Barcelona, Espana
Neurologia 25:83-9. 2010
..In recent studies, TGA was associated with a right to left shunt (RLS). We studied the presence of the RLS in patients with TGA and we compared this series with patients who had suffered a transient ischaemic attack (TIA)...
- Lack of evidence for arterial ischemia in transient global amnesia
Stroke 39:476-9. 2008
..MRIs performed between 12 and 72 hours showed the highest frequency of DWI-L (88%; P<0.001). No pathological findings were observed at 30 days. CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that TGA is not related to cerebral arterial ischemia...
