Diffusion Tensor Imaging in Epilepsy With Continuous Spikes and Waves During Sleep

Continuous Spikes and Waves during Sleep (CSWS) is a rare paediatric epileptic encephalopathy. Even if the correlation between the severity of the epilepsy and the cognitive consequences is well established, the mechanisms involved in epileptic cognitive degradation are complex and poorly understood. In CSWS, there are many arguments for the ...

Phase N/A

Impact of Early Lactate Dosage Compared to CK for Diagnosis of a Suspected Seizure

We propose to carry out a prospective, observational, monocentric study at the CHU of Clermont-Ferrand. This is a descriptive analysis of the kinetics of the Creatine kinase and Lactates rates collected at the admission of a patient consulting for strong suspicion of convulsive seizure, and at 4 hours from the ...

Phase N/A

Biology of Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a common neurological disorder affecting 1% of the population. There are over 30 types of epilepsy, some common, some rare. Most epilepsies arise in childhood and have a genetic cause. Approximately 40% of patients have the common forms of Genetic Generalised Epilepsy (GGE), and the commonest GGE is ...

Phase N/A

Human Epilepsy Genetics--Neuronal Migration Disorders Study

Pediatric epilepsy is responsible for tremendous long-term healthcare costs. Analysis of inherited epilepsy conditions has allowed for identification of several key genes active in the developing brain. Although many genetic abnormalities of the brain are rare and lethal, rapidly advancing knowledge of the structure of the human genome makes it ...

Phase N/A

Electrical Impedance Tomography of Epilepsy

Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT) is a novel medical imaging method in which tomographic images are rapidly produced using electrodes placed around the body. The principal applicant's group has demonstrated that EIT can rapidly image functional brain activity in stroke, epilepsy and normal activity in animal models and has developed instrumentation ...

Phase N/A

Developing Criteria for Cortical Resections

The purpose of this study is to study how disease processes like tumors or epilepsy spread in the brain. During surgery small pieces of abnormal (unusual) brain tissue may be removed. We analyze these specimens using more advanced microscopic and electrophysiologic techniques than are usually applied to such tissue specimens. ...

Phase N/A

Epi-collect: Data Collection During Video EEG Monitoring and at Patient's Home

Epilepsy is a group of neurological disorders characterized by propensity for spontaneous epileptic seizures. Epileptic seizures are the result of excessive and abnormal nerve cell activity in the brain. About 0.7-1% of the world population suffers from seizures. The most common treatment is based on seizure medications that enables about ...

Phase N/A

A Clinical Study of Children With Status Epilepticus in China

Methods Case retrieval: The investigators query cases with a diagnostic code of SE via usage of the International Classification of Diseases, 10th revision (ICD-10) code G41. Data collection:The subjects will be recruited from all hospitals.The investigators collect detailed information by a standardized questionnaire ,which contains each patient's age, gender, the ...

Phase N/A

Population Pharmacokinetics of Antiepileptic in Pediatrics

Epilepsy affects about 1% of the population, with a peak incidence in childhood, and persistent seizures on antiepileptic therapy in approximately 30% of patients. Over the past two decades, many antiepileptic molecules have emerged, raising the question of their optimal use, especially in pediatrics, where pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics are different ...

Phase N/A

Prospective Cohort Study on the Efficacy of Vagus Nerve Stimulation for Children and Adolescents With Epilepsy(PVNS-CAE)

Epileptic encephalopathy is very common in children and adolescent with epilepsy, but there is no data in clinical studies.The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of the long-term vagus nerve stimulation for children and adolescent with epilepsy
