Risk Factors for Sudden Unexplained Death in Epilepsy

SUDEP stands for sudden unexplained death in epilepsy; a witnessed or unwitnessed, non-traumatic and non-drowning death occurring in benign circumstances, in a person with epilepsy with or without evidence of a seizure and excluding documented status epileptics (seizure duration of 130mins or longer, or seizures without recovery in between), in ...

Phase N/A

Cerebral Oxygen Saturation and Cytochrome Oxidase REDOX State in Children With Epilepsy: A Pilot Study

Pediatric subjects with partial (focal) epilepsy seizure disorders who are being admitted to the epilepsy monitoring unit will be studied using near-infrared spectroscopy for cytochrome c oxidase (CCO) redox state and blood oxygen saturation. Along with routine EEG monitoring, a set of light sensors, called optodes, attached to a net ...

Phase N/A

Post-market Study of AMAP Receptor Antagonists for Epilepsy Patients in Hong Kong

Epilepsy is a chronic neurological disease which affects approximately 70,000 patients in Hong Kong and 50 billion people worldwide. Among these patients, one-third remained unresponsive to antiepileptic agents. Continual drug manipulation is an essential therapeutic option for these patients with refractory epilepsy. In particular, rational polytherapy has become the mainstay ...

Phase N/A

Comparison Between Efficacy of Daily and Intermittent Low Glycemic Index Therapy Diet

Drug resistant epilepsy constitutes about one third of all children diagnosed with epilepsy. Although ketogenic diet is being used for drug resistant epilepsy for almost hundred years, its restrictiveness and adverse effects interferes with its compliance. So less restrictive alternatives like Low Glycemic Index Therapy diet is gradually becoming more ...

Phase N/A

Neuroimaging Biomarker for Seizures

Numerous Veterans and civilians have seizures, which can be epileptic or nonepileptic in nature. Epileptic seizures are caused by abnormal brain cell firing. Nonepileptic seizures appear similar to epileptic seizures, but are associated with traumatic experiences and underlying psychological stressors. Both types of seizure are common and disabling, and many ...

Phase N/A

Genetic Markers of Cardiovascular Disease in Epilepsy

The overall goals are to determine whether patients with epilepsy who have the highest risk of SUDEP have an underlying genetic cardiovascular disorder. The investigators are seeking patients with epilepsy who have a high risk of SUDEP identified by using a risk scoring tool called SUDEP-7 and/or have blood-relatives with ...

Phase N/A

Neural Circulatory Control and SUDEP Risk.

The investigators overall goals are to determine whether measures of neural-circulatory control during the interictal waking and sleep states, as well as during the ictal/peri-ictal periods, are associated with SUDEP-7 score risk profiles in refractory epilepsy patients, and to translate these measures into tools for risk-stratification and preventative strategies for ...

Phase N/A

Seizure Prophylaxis in Aneurysm Repair

After a thorough review of the existing literature as well as a review of our own practice, the investigators have concluded that the decision to treat patients undergoing aneurysm repair with levetiracetam has reached true clinical equipoise. In other words, the investigators cannot favor a decision to either administer or ...

Phase

Efficacy and Safety of Intramuscular Midazolam Compared to Buccal Midazolam in Pediatric Seizures

Both buccal and intramuscular midazolam have been used to control seizures with variable succuss rates and side effects. In this study the investigators are going to assign patient randomly to receive either buccal or intramuscular midazolam. Then will compare both efficacy and side effect in both groups.

Phase

Creation Implementation and Analysis of a Seizure Action Plan

The purpose of this study is the creation, implementation, and analysis of a seizure action plan, an intervention aimed to guide daily medication use, outline pre-hospital seizure first aide and rescue medication use, and direct emergency personnel in patients' individualized status epilepticus medication algorithm, with implementation through the electronic medical ...
