  • [Nonconvulsive Status Epilepticus Associated with Theophylline: A Case Report]. [Case Reports]
    Brain Nerve. 2021 Mar; 73(3):283-288.Uemura J, Yamashita S, … Inoue T
  • An 87-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital because of speech disturbance and right facio-pharyngo-glosso-masticatory diplegia. She had bronchial asthma, was previously diagnosed with cerebral infarction, had experienced two events of convulsive status epilepticus, and was undergoing treatment with theophylline, levetiracetam, and clopidogrel. Head diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imag…
  • Seizure Clusters: Morbidity and Mortality. [Review]
    Front Neurol. 2021; 12:636045.Bauman K, Devinsky O
  • Seizure clusters, an intermediate between single seizure and status epilepticus, are associated with morbidity, impaired quality of life, and premature mortality. The relationship between seizure clusters and sudden unexplained death in epilepsy (SUDEP) is poorly understood. Here, we define seizure clusters; review comorbid psychiatric disorders and memory deficits associated with seizure cluster…
  • Myocardial Iron Overload in an Experimental Model of Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy. [Journal Article]
    Front Neurol. 2021; 12:609236.Akyuz E, Doganyigit Z, … Auzmendi J
  • Uncontrolled repetitive generalized tonic-clonic seizures (GTCS) are the main risk factor for sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP). GTCS can be observed in models such as Pentylenetetrazole kindling (PTZ-K) or pilocarpine-induced Status Epilepticus (SE-P), which share similar alterations in cardiac function, with a high risk of SUDEP. Terminal cardiac arrhythmia in SUDEP can develop as a r…
  • Heidenhain Variant of Sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease: First Reported Case from East Africa. [Case Reports]
    Int Med Case Rep J. 2021; 14:39-44.Sokhi D, Yakub F, … Mativo P
  • Sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (sCJD) is a rare prion disease that causes rapidly progressive fatal neurodegeneration. The rarer Heidenhain variant of sCJD presents with visual symptoms and is rarely reported in the literature from sub-Saharan Africa. We report the case of a 57-year-old male with a three-week history of losing direction when driving home and visual hallucinations described as…
  • The Role of Tourniquet Placement in Management of a Patient With Status Epilepticus. [Journal Article]
    J Emerg Med. 2020 Dec 22 [Online ahead of print]Amarath-Madav R, Loeffler P, McCollum D
  • The global burden of seizure disorders is apparent and necessitates the effective management of patients with status epilepticus (SE). The goal of management is universally accepted as the prompt mitigation of seizure activity with appropriate supportive care. During management, patients may require intubation. In the process of endotracheal tube placement, patients are administered neuromuscular…
  • Levetiracetam as an alternative to phenytoin for second-line emergency treatment of children with convulsive status epilepticus: the EcLiPSE RCT. [Journal Article]
    Health Technol Assess. 2020 11; 24(58):1-96.Appleton RE, Rainford NE, … Lyttle MD
  • CONCLUSIONS: Levetiracetam was not statistically superior to phenytoin in convulsive status epilepticus termination rate, time taken to terminate convulsive status epilepticus or frequency of serious adverse reactions. The results suggest that it may be an alternative to phenytoin in the second-line management of paediatric convulsive status epilepticus. Simple trial design, bespoke site training and effective leadership were found to facilitate practitioner commitment to the trial and its success. We provide a framework to optimise recruitment discussions in paediatric emergency medicine trials.
  • [Clinical characteristics of Idiopathic Epilepsy in Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs in Switzerland]. [Journal Article]
    Schweiz Arch Tierheilkd. 2020 Nov; 162(11):697-706.Sauer-Delhées S, Steffen F, … Beckmann K
  • Background: Little is known about idiopathic Epilepsy in Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs. Until now this breed is not listed as a predisposed breed for idiopathic epilepsy. The aim of this study was to estimate the prevalence of idiopathic epilepsy in Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs in Switzerland and to describe the clinical characteristics of epilepsy in this breed including seizures semiology and resp…
