Sleep Intervention for Pediatric Epilepsy

Sleep problems are more prevalent and serious in children with epilepsy whose sleep can be disrupted by seizures occurring during the night and/or during the day. Inadequate sleep has long been recognized as a trigger for seizure and poor sleep habits have been associated with unfavorable outcomes in children with ...

Phase N/A

Investigation of Sleep Quality and Prevalence of Sleep-disordered Breathing in Children and Young People With Epilepsy

Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is a condition that affects around one in 20 children. In OSA, the muscles and soft tissues in the throat relax and collapse during sleep causing the upper airway to become blocked. Breathing is briefly interrupted, blood oxygen levels fall and this causes the child to ...

Phase N/A

Diffusion Tensor and Functional Connectivity Imaging in Pediatric Epilepsy: Imaging/Histology Correlation

To determine if diffusion tensor and functional connectivity magnetic resonance imaging helpful to better understand and diagnose intractable epilepsy in children. All enrolled children will undergo standard preoperative and postoperative MRI imaging, plus a 15 minute set of functional connectivity and diffusion tensor sequence with no additional sedation. This imaging ...

Cannabidiol (CBD) and Pediatric Epilepsy

Legislation to allow medical marijuana has had a significant impact on the pediatric population of Colorado. There have been many reported different effects and properties of each of the over 60 known cannabinoids found in marijuana. The main exposures in pediatrics have involved the use of Cannabidiol (CBD) high- and ...

Supporting Treatment Adherence Regimens in Pediatric Epilepsy: The STAR Trial

Non-adherence to antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) is a common (i.e., 58% of patients have some level of non-adherence) and previously under-recognized problem for young children with newly diagnosed epilepsy. This is surprising given the consequences of non-adherence in patients with epilepsy are extremely serious, including continued seizures, mortality, and high healthcare ...

Clinical Utility of Pediatric Whole Exome Sequencing

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is changing the paradigm of clinical genetic testing. Unlike highly focused single-gene tests, NGS allows one to examine gene panels, the exome, and the whole genome. With the broad array of molecular tests now available, ordering physicians face the conundrum of selecting the best diagnostic tool for ...

Phase N/A

Impact of Epileptic Discharge on the Structural Connectivity of the Developing Brain

Drug-resistant focal epilepsy is a debilitating disease as it is often accompanied by learning disabilities and behavioral disorders, that can be present at the disease onset and have ample repercussions on the child's quality of life. Despite a focal onset of seizures, the dysfunction of the cerebral networks is diffuse. ...

Phase N/A

Ultra High Field MRI of Focal Pediatric Epilepsy

Abstract Epilepsy affects a significant number of children in the United States. The majority of patients achieve control of their seizures by conventional treatment strategies including medications. However, one third of patients do not achieve satisfactory seizure control with medications alone. Ketogenic diet and lifestyle modifications may also be tried. ...

Evaluating Innovations in Transition From Pediatric to Adult Care - The Transition Navigator Trial

Transition is the purposeful, planned movement of adolescent and young adults with chronic health conditions from child-centered to adult-oriented health systems. Transition includes, but is not limited to transfer to adult care. Transfer of care, which occurs during a vulnerable developmental period around age 18 introduces gaps in continuity of ...
