In Saudi Arabia, its prevalence is 6.5 cases per 1000 individuals. Physicians and healthcare professionals have a key role in increasing the knowledge and awareness of the general population about epilepsy. The purpose of this study was to assess the level of awareness of different asp...

C, Ramos-Clason E Abstract AIM: To determine feasibility, reliability and validity of the shortened version of the Quality of Life in Epilepsy Inventory-10 (QOLIE-10) in a population of refractory epilepsy adult patients in the Colombian Caribbean. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Data were collected from 63 adult refractory epilepsy patients. The ten items of QOLIE-10 were derived from the Spanish version of QOLIE-89. We assess feasibility, validity, factorial analysis with communalities, reliability through internal consistency and sensitivity to change. RESULTS: Clinical and demographic features were determined;...

Recently, it has been reported that levetiracetam (LEV), a new antiepileptic drug with novel chemical construction and unique pharmacological properties, suppressed aberrant adult subventricular zone (SGZ) neurogenesis in kainite-induced epileptic mice, while promoted adult SGZ neuroblast differentiation in normal mice. These studi...

Epilepsy should be suspected in patients with Stiff ‐person syndrome and new onset paroxysmal episodes. Musicogenic epilepsy may be a manifestation of anti‐GAD‐Ab spectrum, supporting an autoimmune workup in these patients. Appropriate treatment is not well established, and immunotherapy should be considered in patients with only partial respon se to antiepileptic drugs. AbstractEpilepsy should be suspected in patients with Stiff ‐person syndrome and new onset paroxysmal episodes.

Publication date: March 2020Source: Biomedical Signal Processing and Control, Volume 57Author(s): Susanta Kumar Rout, Pradyut Kumar BiswalAbstractIn this paper, variational mode decomposition (VMD), Hilbert transform (HT), and proposed error-minimized random vector functional link network (EMRVFLN) are integrated to detect and classify epileptic seizure from electroencephalogram (EEG) signals. VMD is applied to decompose the EEG signal into Band-limited intrinsic mode functions (BLIMFs). The five efficacious instantaneous features are computed using HT to construct the feature vector. Proposed EMRVFLN classifier is used to...

Authors: Kavčič A, Kajdič N, Rener-Primec Z, Krajnc N, Žgur T Abstract To review the outcome of vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) therapy in all implanted Slovenian patients with drug-resistant epilepsy, data on 48 patients implanted between 2001 and 2015 were obtained retrospectively from medical records. The outcome was assessed in 2016. Out of 48 patients, 39 responded at follow up. The seizure frequency was reduced in 18 (46.2%) patients; 13 (33.3%) of them reported ≥50% reduction after 12 months of therapy. The responder rate was higher among patients implanted before the age of six years. Ictal severity de...
