Summary

The purpose of this study is to systematically and prospectively collect data from patients with partial-onset seizures in routine clinical practice setting receiving adjunctive Vimpat®. The observed population will be only patients with one baseline antiepileptic drug. Seizure control and tolerability data will be evaluated.

Predictors and outcome surgery for posterior cortex epilepsies.

The aim of this study is to identify the prognostic role of MRI and EEG in posterior cortex epilepsies (PCES) and to characterize their clinical features.

Strategies of using the new antiepileptic drugs for epilepsy in adults.

The new antiepileptic drugs have not changed the basic pharmacological treatment principles of epilepsy, but they have given greater choice in focal and in generalized epilepsies as well. The new drug...

A population-based cost-effectiveness study of early genetic testing in severe epilepsies of infancy.

The severe epilepsies of infancy (SEI) are a devastating group of disorders that pose a major care and economic burden on society; early diagnosis is critical for optimal management. This study sought...

Invasive EEG-electrodes in presurgical evaluation of epilepsies: Systematic analysis of implantation-, video-EEG-monitoring- and explantation-related complications, and review of literature.

Stereoelectroencephalography (sEEG) is a diagnostic procedure for patients with refractory focal epilepsies that is performed to localize and define the epileptogenic zone. In contrast to grid electro...

Rare gene deletions in genetic generalized and Rolandic epilepsies.

Genetic Generalized Epilepsy (GGE) and benign epilepsy with centro-temporal spikes or Rolandic Epilepsy (RE) are common forms of genetic epilepsies. Rare copy number variants have been recognized as i...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Conditions characterized by recurrent paroxysmal neuronal discharges which arise from a focal region of the brain. Partial seizures are divided into simple and complex, depending on whether consciousness is unaltered (simple partial seizure) or disturbed (complex partial seizure). Both types may feature a wide variety of motor, sensory, and autonomic symptoms. Partial seizures may be classified by associated clinical features or anatomic location of the seizure focus. A secondary generalized seizure refers to a partial seizure that spreads to involve the brain diffusely. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp317)

A disorder characterized by recurrent focal onset seizures which have sensory (i.e., olfactory, visual, tactile, gustatory, or auditory) manifestations. Partial seizures that feature alterations of consciousness are referred to as complex partial seizures (EPILEPSY, COMPLEX PARTIAL).

A partial denture constructed before the teeth it replaces are removed. It is then inserted immediately after the removal of the natural teeth for functional and cosmetic reasons during the healing process. It is to be replaced later by the fitted partial denture.

A disorder characterized by recurrent partial seizures marked by impairment of cognition. During the seizure the individual may experience a wide variety of psychic phenomenon including formed hallucinations, illusions, deja vu, intense emotional feelings, confusion, and spatial disorientation. Focal motor activity, sensory alterations and AUTOMATISM may also occur. Complex partial seizures often originate from foci in one or both temporal lobes. The etiology may be idiopathic (cryptogenic partial complex epilepsy) or occur as a secondary manifestation of a focal cortical lesion (symptomatic partial complex epilepsy). (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp317-8)

A partial denture attached to prepared natural teeth, roots, or implants by cementation.
