The SeLECT 2.0 Score —Significance of Treatment With Antiseizure Medication

To the Editor Congratulations to Sinka et al on their recent article introducing the SeLECT 2.0 score. We have been using the original SeLECT score in the past and are pleased that there is an update incorporating acute symptomatic status epilepticus. Although by definition the diagnosis of epilepsy requires at least 1 unprovoked seizure, patients with ischemic stroke and a very high SeLECT 2.0 score due to an acute symptomatic status epilepticus may be counseled and treated as if they already had poststroke epilepsy.
