Book Description :

Fully revised and updated, this second edition includes more than 2/3 new high-quality digital figures. A new Classification approach to epileptic seizures and to the epilepsies became official in 2017. Several aspects in terms of terminology have been included in this book and most of the chapters have been rewritten. This volume focuses on epilepsies in their diversity. It is richly illustrated, and each EEG plate is analyzed in order to highlight the most significant elements to be used both for the diagnosis and interpretation. The originality of this textbook lies in its patient-based approach, thereby avoiding the pitfall of a formal presentation of EEG documents without their clinical context. Hence electroencephalography is placed at the core of the diagnostic and therapeutic discussion concerning patients with epilepsy. Given the practical orientation of this Atlas, the focus is on common forms of epilepsies; nevertheless, some less common, more intriguing forms have also been illustrated. A synthetic text summarizes the present approach to the main epilepsy categories. This Atlas is designed for all the actors who may be involved with patients with epilepsy. Physicians who deal with EEG will find it a valuable tool to improve the education of their early years, to help them with their interpretations later on, and for teaching purposes when more experienced. But it will also prove useful for all the physicians interested in epilepsy, as well as EEG technologists intent on providing quality recordings, and other professionals. Thorough understanding of human epilepsies requires extensive knowledge of their EEG correlates.

Book Description :

This was an exciting project to work on, and I attempted to obtain a broad sampling of current research on the neuropsychology of epilepsy. Because the emphasis of the book takes a neuropsychological perspective on epilepsy, the coverage is not redundant with previous texts on this topic. The book is organized around three themes, although individual chapters certainly often extend beyond the part in which they are located. The three major topics are the nature of epilepsy, cognitive and emotional consequences of epilepsy, and treatment approaches to epilepsy and outcome. In Part I, following a historical overview of epilepsy in Chapter 1 by Sandra D. Haynes and me, Gerald C. McIntosh presents a conceptualization of the epilepsies from a neurologist's perspective. The characteristics of seizure types are discussed, and the etiology of secondary epilepsies is described. Epileptic syndromes are considered. McIntosh outlines clinical seizure patterns associated with seizures originating from different cortical regions.

Book Description :

To an outside observer, Psychogenic Non-Epileptic Seizures (PNES) look like epileptic seizures. The manifestations of PNES include collapses, impaired consciousness, and seizure-related injuries. However, unlike epileptic seizures, which are the result of abnormal electrical discharges in the brain, most PNES are an automatic psychological response to a trigger perceived as threatening. Not least because the changes in the brain that underpin PNES cannot be visualised easily with clinical tests (such as the EEG), there are many uncertainties and controversies surrounding the condition. Patients often provoke a mixture of emotions in healthcare professionals. In the authors' previous book, In Our Words: Personal Accounts of Living with Non-Epileptic Seizures, over 100 individuals with PNES and their family wrote about their experiences with the condition. While some had positive care experiences, many were left feeling confused, angry, and abandoned by the clinicians they had encountered. Non-Epileptic Seizures in Our Experience: Accounts of Health Care Professionals complements the authors' previous book by presenting the perspectives of over 90 members of different healthcare professions from around the world. The anonymous publication format has enabled many not only to share success stories but also to be open about difficulties and failures. This volume will be an invaluable resource for both highly experienced professionals as well as relative novice and those experiencing PNES. This book will challenge negative attitudes surrounding the condition, improve understanding between healthcare professionals and patients, and - ultimately - advance the quality of care provided for those with PNES.

Book Description :

To date we know of four inborn errors of autosomal recessive inheritance that lead to vitamin B6-dependent seizures. Among these, pyridoxine-dependent seizures due to antiquitin deficiency is by far the most common, although exact incidence data are lacking. In PNPO deficiency, samples have to be collected prior to treatment, while PDE, hyperprolinemia type II and congenital HPP can be diagnosed while on vitamin B6 supplementation. A vitamin B6 withdrawal for diagnostic purposes is nowadays only indicated in patients with a clear vitamin B6 response but normal biochemical work-up. In the presence of therapy-resistant neonatal seizures, early consideration of a vitamin B6 trial over 3 consecutive days is crucial in order to prevent irreversible brain damage. While PLP would be effective in all four disorders, pyridoxine fails to treat seizures in PNPO deficiency. As PLP is unlicensed within Europe and North America, pyridoxine is widely used as the first line drug, but if it is ineffective it should be followed by a trial with PLP, especially in neonates. As severe apnea has been described in responders, resuscitation equipment should be at hand during a first pyridoxine/PLP administration. Patients and parents have to be informed about the lifelong dependency and recurrence risks in forthcoming pregnancies.

Epilepsy is one of the most familiar chronic neurological diseases and is a common yet challenging presentation in veterinary surgeries. This book covers seizure pathogenesis, classifications, diagnostic investigations, emergency treatments and longer term treatments, with a large section on pharmacological intervention. Filling a considerable gap in the veterinary literature, it includes tables and charts for quick reference during emergencies. Seizures can be very distressing to animals and owners, yet not all seizures are the result of epilepsy, a neurological condition. This book discusses how to distinguish between epileptic and non-neurological seizures, and provides case studies to illustrate different occurrences of epilepsy.

This up-to-date resource offers clinicians a skills-based framework for assessment and treatment of cognitive and emotional problems associated with epilepsy, using current evidence and standardized terminology. Expert coverage reviews widely-used methods for evaluating key aspects of patient functioning (MRI, MEG, electrocortical mapping, the Wada test), and presents guidelines for psychotherapeutic and cognitive remediation strategies in treating comorbid psychiatric conditions. Given the diversity of the patient population, additional chapters spotlight issues specific to subgroups including high- and low-functioning as well as geriatric and pediatric patients. This integrative hands-on approach benefits novice and veteran practitioners across medical and neurological settings seeking guidance on testing, treatment planning, and surgery-related concerns. Topics featured in the Handbook: Neuropsychological assessment across the lifespan. Evaluating the epilepsy surgical candidate: methods and procedures. The Wada test: current perspectives and applications. Assessing psychiatric and personality disorders in the epilepsy patient. Evaluation and management of psychogenic non-epileptic attacks. Neuropsychological assessment with culturally diverse patients. Practical and flexible in its coverage, the Handbook on the Neuropsychology of Epilepsy serves not only neuropsychologists and neurologists but also primary care physicians such as internists, family physicians, and pediatricians.

Book Description :

Autonomic function may help to localize and manage the epilepsies. It is likely that the mechanisms of Sudden Unexpected death in Epilepsy (SUDEP) involve autonomic disturbance and a better understanding of these might lead to measures that would help reduce the mortality in patients afflicted with epilepsy. In this thesis, I first provide a comprehensive literature review of the association between epilepsy and the autonomic nervous system. I then evaluate heart rate variability and other cardiac and endocrine parameters as indices of cardiac autonomic function to test three hypothesis; 1) Changes in heart rate variability (HRV), can occur in the peri-ictal period during both (a) subclinical electrographic seizures and (b) clinically overt partial seizures, and can help to localise and lateralise the ictal discharge. 2) Intractable epilepsy can disrupt the heart rate variability and its circadian rhythm. 3) Epileptic seizures affect the serum concentration of the catecholamines and the electrolytes and that these changes could impact on the corrected QT interval. Subjects (n=207) with intractable epilepsy who were being evaluated with video-EEG telemetry for epilepsy surgery were recruited for this study. I found that subclinical seizures have no effect on the HRV. However, in overt partial seizures, HRV decreases, corrected QT is prolonged and plasma catecholamines increases. The reduction in HRV during seizures is not affected by the hemispheric or lobar location of the epileptic focus. However, in the interictal period, reduced HRV differs in left vs. right hemisphere, and in temporal vs. extratemporal areas. The diurnal pattern of HRV is not altered in epilepsy and the mean day HRV were significantly different from mean night HRV. The reduction in HRV is also associated with the following clinical factors: prolonged medical history of epilepsy, the cortical pathology itself, the nature of the seizures, higher seizure frequency and the antiepileptic drug treatment. The plasma electrolytes: Na, K+, Ca2+ and cardiac troponin are not affected after a seizure. However, plasma Mg2+ was seen to increase after a seizure. These abnormalities in autonomic control, particularly the reduction in HRV might be one contributory mechanism of Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP).
