Stephen M Sergay
Physician and patient experiences of health care delivery are inextricably intertwined. Accelerating physician burnout has reached epidemic proportions in the United States. In parallel, health care has become a different experience for our patients. As a practicing neurologist over the last 40 years, I have observed changes in the expectations of colleagues and patients, whose feelings and concerns continually educate me. While I am not alone in advocating for intervention in current health care delivery methodology, not all are convinced...

REVIEW
Cody L Nathan, Camilo Gutierrez
Purpose of review: Disparities in treatment and outcomes of patients with epilepsy have been identified in several distinct patient populations. The purpose of this review is to organize the literature and establish clear pathways as to why certain patient populations are not receiving epilepsy surgery. By establishing the acronym FACETS (fear of treatment, access to care, communication barriers, education, trust between patient and physician, and social support), we set up a pathway to further study this area in an organized fashion, hopefully leading to objective solutions...

REVIEW
Hari K Raju Sagiraju, Chen-Pin Wang, Megan E Amuan, Anne C Van Cott, Hamada H Altalib, Mary Jo V Pugh
Background: We sought to compare trends of suicide-related behavior (SRB) before and after initiation of antiepileptic drug (AED) therapy among AED users (with and without epilepsy) to that of individuals without AED use controlling for sociodemographic characteristics and mental health comorbidity. Methods: We used national Veterans Health Administration (VHA) data for post-9/11 veterans who received VHA care (2013-2014) without prior AED use. We conducted generalized estimation equation (GEE) analyses, stratified by epilepsy status and type of AED received, to assess the trend of SRB prevalence the year prior to and after the index date (date of first AED prescription/date of first health care encounter for non-AED users) controlling for sociodemographic factors and mental health comorbidity...

Daniel K Noland, Benjamin M Greenberg
Background: We sought to review safety and efficacy of therapeutic plasma exchange (TPE) in a cohort of pediatric patients with transverse myelitis. Methods: Billing data of all plasma exchanges performed at our tertiary care pediatric hospital between August 2010 and August 2016 were compared to electronic medical records to find all patients whose indication for apheresis was transverse myelitis. Patient outcomes were quantified on the modified Rankin Scale. Results: Fifteen of 19 patients (79%) had major improvement in symptoms after a course of 4-7 therapeutic plasma exchanges...

David H Do, James E Siegler
Background: We sought to determine the neurologic diagnosis or diagnostic categories that are associated with a higher probability of honoring a scheduled follow-up visit in the outpatient clinic. Methods: We conducted a retrospective analysis of patients evaluated over a 3-year period (July 2014-June 2017) at a single neurology clinic in an urban location. Adult patients who honored an initial scheduled outpatient appointment were included. Only diagnoses with a ≥0...

Background: Intracranial hemorrhage is the most devastating complication in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) receiving oral anticoagulation (OAC). It can be either spontaneous or caused by head trauma. We sought to address the prevalence, clinical characteristics, and prognosis of traumatic and spontaneous intracranial hemorrhages in AF patients on OAC. Methods: Multicenter FibStroke registry of 5,629 patients identified 592 intracranial hemorrhages during warfarin treatment between 2003 and 2012...

Debra E Roberts, Robert G Holloway, Benjamin P George
Background: Hospital stays for patients discharged to post-acute care are longer and more costly than routine discharges. Issues disrupting patient flow from hospital to post-acute care facilities are an underrecognized strain on hospital resources. We sought to quantify the burden of medically unnecessary hospital days for inpatients with neurologic illness and planned discharge to post-acute care facilities. Methods: We conducted a retrospective evaluation of hospital discharge delays for patients with neurologic disease and plans for discharge to post-acute care...

Background: Dimethyl fumarate (DMF) and fingolimod (FTY) are approved oral disease-modifying therapies for relapsing multiple sclerosis (MS). Observational studies are valuable when randomized clinical trials cannot be done due to ethical or practical reasons. Two-site studies allow investigators to further ascertain external validity of previously examined treatment effect differences. Limited head-to-head 2-site studies exist comparing DMF and FTY. Methods: Patients prescribed DMF (n = 737) and FTY (n = 535) from 2 academic multiple sclerosis (MS) centers (Cleveland Clinic and University of Colorado) were identified...

Background: We sought to define the radiologic features that differentiate neoplastic from non-neoplastic T2 hyperintensities (T2Hs) in neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) and identify those lesions most likely to require oncologic surveillance. Methods: We conducted a single-center retrospective review of all available brain MRIs from 68 children with NF1 (n = 190) and 46 healthy pediatric controls (n = 104). All T2Hs identified on MRI were characterized based on location, border, shape, degree of T1 hypointensity, and presence of mass effect or contrast enhancement, and subsequently classified using newly established radiologic criteria as either unidentified bright objects (UBOs) or probable tumors...
