Abstract

Objective

We analyzed the features of fast oscillations (FOs) and connectivity in hypsarrhythmia to identify biomarkers for predicting seizure outcomes after total corpus callosotomy (TCC) in children with pharmacoresistant infantile spasms (IS). We hypothesize that the power of FOs and connectivity of slow waves in hypsarrhythmia would indicate the prognosis of IS.… Read More...

Abstract

Surgical management of medically intractable epilepsy was historically based on the premise of excising the presumed substrate of disease, that is, “the epileptogenic zone.” There was early interest in establishing the extent of resection of the temporal lobe that optimized postoperative reduction in seizure burden while preserving neurocognitive function.… Read More...

Psychogenic nonepileptic seizures (PNES) are common occurrences in epilepsy centers [1]. Currently, the diagnosis is often made by neurologists/epileptologists and the treatment is usually offered by psychologists/psychiatrists. But, misdiagnosis and delay in making a definite diagnosis and consequently maltreatment practices are common in these patients [2].… Read More...

ABSTRACT

Objective

To determine the current risks of infertility and impaired fecundity as well as the live birth/pregnancy ratio among women with epilepsy (WWE) in the USA and whether antiepileptic drug (AED) use is a factor.

Methods

These retrospective survey data come from the 2010‐2014 Epilepsy Birth Control Registry (EBCR) Web‐based survey of 1000 WWE in the USA, aged 18‐47 years, who provided demographic, epilepsy, AED, reproductive, and contraceptive data.… Read More...

Ddifficulties with neurodevelopment and behaviour are frequently reported in children with epilpesy [1]. The difficulties experienced by the children are greater than that experienced by children with other non-neurological conditions [2] and have often a greater impact on Health Related Quality of Life (HRQOL) than seizures [3].… Read More...

We present the case of a 10-year-old Chinese boy with profound developmental delay, spastic quadriparesis, and intractable epilepsy with tonic and atypical absence seizures. He was first noted to have a delay at 9 months. When evaluated at 17 months he had diffusely decreased tone, was only able to roll over but could not sit, hold his head, crawl or communicate.… Read More...

Abstract

Objective

Laser interstitial thermal therapy (LITT) is a novel minimally invasive alternative to open mesial temporal resection in drug‐resistant mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE). The safety and efficacy of the procedure are dependent on the preplanned trajectory and the extent of the planned ablation achieved.… Read More...
