Lateralized periodic discharges associated with status epilepticus in the first year after stroke

Backgrand. Lateralized periodic discharges (LPDs) are infrequent electroencephalograph (EEG) findings, and may present in ictal or interictal form. They are regarded as potential electrophysiologic signs of convulsive or nonconvulsive status epilepticus (NCSE). We report four patients who presented with NCSE and one who presented with convulsive status epilepticus in the postictal period, characterized by LPDs in EEG recordings in the first year after stroke. Material and methods. We

Case report

The diagnostic dilemma of non-convulsive status epilepticus in sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease

Introduction. The differentiation between the clinical and electroencephalographic changes in nonconvulsive status epilepticus (NCSE) and those in sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (sCJD) is a crucial question. Case report. A 77-year old woman was admitted because of fluctuating behavioural chancaseges, adynamia and apraxia since several months for diagnostic. The diagnosis of sCJD was suggested. Subsequently, she had a generalized tonic clonic seizure (GTCS) and the EEG revealed periodic

Review Paper

Encephalopathy with Electrical Status Epilepticus in Slow Wave Sleep – a review with an emphasis on regional (perisylvian) aspects

Aim. The aim of this article is to review criticaly the Electrical Status Epilepticus in Slow Sleep (ESES) phenomenon from a neurophysiological mechanisms aspect as well as terminological and classification issues. Methods. The review includes all the relevant papers published during the last 43 years on the subject of ESES and Continous Spike – Wave in Sleep (CSWS).These papers were identified in various large databases via the internet. Rewiev and remarks. ESES/CSWS phenomena can be

Pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches to life threatening conditions in epilepsy

underlying disease (damages of the central nervous system [CNS]), sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP) and status epilepticus (SE). Other factors include seizure-resulting accidents (injuries, drowning, burns, choking, aspiration pneumonia after seizures), suicidal attempts of epileptic patients or the adverse impact of pharmacotherapy (Lathoo, Sander, 2005; Devinsky et al., 2016; Konopko, Rola, 2017). Lathoo and Sander (2005) have proposed a classification which includes the following categories

Determinants of medication withdrawal strategy in the epilepsy monitoring unit*

seizures during admission or length of stay greater than 29 days were exclusion criteria. Variables recorded were age, gender, AEDs, self-reported outpatient seizure frequency, use of rescue medications during admission, withdrawal method, occurrence of status epilepticus, number of days in the monitoring unit, and duration of epilepsy. The data was analyzed using cox regression plots, hazard ratios and T tables. One limitation of our methods was our inability to capture the nature and severity of

The pathophysiology of Lennox-Gastaut syndrome – a review of clinico-electrophysiological studies

research. Methods. All of our previously published and unpublished data were reviewed in order to investigate the pathophysiology of LGS and using PubMed database for relevant literature. Results and Discussion. While LGS usually occurs in infancy, it has become apparent that there is a form of late-onset LGS (L-LGS) that may occur at age eight or older. L-LGS often occurs when there is a history of encephalitis/encephalopathy or status epilepticus. The long-term progression of LGS includes mainly
