PURPOSE: To investigate the long-term seizure outcome in patients with convulsive status epilepticus (CSE) due to acute encephalitis and identify early predictors for terminal seizure remission. METHODS: Based on a prospective registry of CSE, consecutive patients with CSE due to acute encephalitis were enrolled from July 2009 to November 2017, with follow-up ending in November 2018. Variables during hospital stay, seizure outcomes within 1 month after status epilepticus (SE), and seizure outcomes within 3 months after acute phase of encephalitis were assessed for predicting terminal seizure freedom...

PURPOSE: We systematically reviewed studies to provide current evidence about the incidence and risk of alopecia in patients undergoing valproic acid (VPA) therapy. METHODS: We retrieved relevant publications and gathered data on alopecia in patients taking VPA and other drugs from prospective studies. RESULTS: Twenty-five articles met the inclusion criteria, and the overall incidence of alopecia in patients receiving VPA therapy was 11% (95% confidence interval (CI): 0...

PURPOSE: This survey was performed to determine the availability of epilepsy surgery, and understand the limiting factors to epilepsy surgery in ASEAN countries with total of 640 million population. METHOD: A cross-sectional survey was completed by national representatives in all ASEAN countries (Brunei, Cambodia, East Timor, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam). RESULTS: Overall facilities for initial epilepsy pre-surgical evaluation are available in most countries, but further non-invasive and invasive investigations are limited...

PURPOSE: Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) is well established in the treatment of epilepsy and disorders of depression. The prevalence of depression is high in patients with epilepsy, but still it remains unclear how patients with a comorbidity of epilepsy and symptoms of depression respond to VNS. METHODS: We investigated 59 patients with different subtypes of disorders of depression as a comorbidity of epilepsy, who underwent VNS-surgery. Before and one year after VNS surgery, the severity of symptoms of depression was evaluated by a psychiatrist using Montgomery-Åsberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) and Beck-Depressions-Inventory (BDI)...

PURPOSE: The non-invasive localisation of insular lobe epilepsy is a challenge. We aimed to determine if ictal SPECT is a reliable adjunctive test in insular cases and to explore its role in the tailoring of intracranial strategies. METHOD: From a dataset of patients who underwent SEEG between December 2012 and December 2016, we collected patients with focal insular onset epilepsy. We examined semiology, EEG, PET and SPECT hyperperfusion pattern with SISCOM. We also reviewed relevant literature...

PURPOSE: The practical management of cavernous angioma located within eloquent brain area before, during and after surgical resection is poorly documented. We assessed the practical pre-operative, intra-operative, and post-operative management of cavernous angioma located within eloquent brain area. METHOD: An online survey composed of 61 items was sent to 26 centers to establish a multicenter international retrospective cohort of adult patients who underwent a surgical resection as the first-line treatment of a supratentorial cavernous angioma located within or close to eloquent brain area...

REVIEW

AIM: We aim to study the mechanism of reflex seizure triggering in close link with the system-epilepsy concept. METHOD: We use data and theories presented in the literature and scrutinize a few illustrative cases. CONCLUSIONS: The prerequisite of seizure triggering is an epilepsy-prone brain network. When it is activated, it may produce seizures manifesting the function(s) of the same system. Beyond classical reflex seizures triggered by sensory-motor stimuli, we extend the reflex-epilepsy concept to seizures induced by the normal activation of epilepsy-prone systems e...

Jonas Lind, Peter Nordlund
PURPOSE: The aim of the study was to examine the frequency of hyperammonemia secondary to valproic acid treatment in status epilepticus and to describe the characteristics of the patients. METHODS: All patients with established status epilepticus during 2014 to 2016 at Ryhov County Hospital were identified in a retrospective case series. Clinical and laboratory findings were collected from electronic medical files and the Metavision database at the intensive care unit (ICU)...

PURPOSE: The ketogenic diet has been found to be safe and effective in the treatment of drug resistant epilepsy in childhood. The age range of children undergoing this treatment has steadily been going down. There is strong evidence that it is a safe alternative in infants with drug resistant seizures. The American Academy of Pediatrics strongly supports continuing a breast milk diet until infants are at least six months of age. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the ketogenic diet in infants while maintaining a breast milk diet...

Andrew G Herzog, Hannah B Mandle, Devon B MacEachern
PURPOSE: To determine whether there is a relationship between the age of seizure onset and the age of menarche. METHODS: 1144 women with epilepsy (WWE) in the community, ages 18-47 years, provided web-based survey data. We compared the frequencies of the individual differences between their ages of seizure onset and menarche to each other and chance. We determined whether the age of menarche is a predictor of the age of seizure onset and the percentage of the variance that menarche explains...

PURPOSE: MEF2C-related epilepsy has been poorly described in the literature, despite a consistent MEF2C haploinsufficiency phenotype characterized by severe language impairment and motor delay (MIM# 613443). We aimed to delineate the spectrum of electroclinical manifestations of MEF2C-related epilepsy from an illustrative case and literature review. METHODS: A retrospective chart review of our case was performed followed by a literature review on PubMed and OMIM...

REVIEW

Decompressive craniectomy (DC) is used for the treatment of raised intracranial pressure secondary to traumatic brain injury. Cranioplasty is a reconstructive procedure that restores the structural integrity of the skull following (DC). Seizures are a recognised complication of cranioplasty but its incidence and risk factors in TBI patients are unclear. Accurate prognostication can help direct prophylactic and treatment strategies for seizures. In this systematic review, we aim to evaluate current literature on these factors...

REVIEW
Ilaria Lagorio, Federico Zara, Salvatore Striano, Pasquale Striano
Familial adult myoclonic epilepsy (FAME), also described with different acronyms (ADCME, BAFME, FEME, FCTE and others), is a high-penetrant autosomal dominant condition featuring cortical hand tremors, myoclonic jerks, and occasional/rare convulsive seizures. Prevalence is unknown since this condition is often under-recognized, but it is estimated to be less than 1/35,000. The disease usually starts in the second decade of life and has been genetically associated with at least 4 different loci (8q24, 2p11.1-q12...

#19
Oh-Young Kwon, Sung-Pa Park
PURPOSE: Suicidality including suicidal ideation and attempt has been a critical issue in people with epilepsy, especially in people with drug-resistant epilepsy (PWDRE). Clinicians commonly ask about adverse effects of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) using something like the Liverpool Adverse Events Profile (LAEP) at epilepsy clinics, but suicide is usually not of interest. A high risk of suicidality can increase mortality by committing suicide in PWDRE. This study aimed to investigate whether clinicians can discern a high risk of suicidality in PWDRE by referring to the LAEP...
