127. Drug treatment of epilepsy in adults.

Drug treatment of epilepsy in adults. Epilepsy is a serious, potentially life shortening brain disorder, the symptoms of which can be successfully treated in most patients with one or more antiepileptic drug. About two in three adults with new onset epilepsy will achieve lasting seizure remission on or off these drugs, although around half will experience mild to moderately severe adverse effects. Patients with epilepsy, especially the 20-30% whose seizures are not fully controlled (...) with available drugs (drug resistant epilepsy), have a significantly increased risk of death, as well as psychiatric and somatic comorbidities, and adverse effects from antiepileptic drugs. Newer drugs have brought more treatment options, and some such as levetiracetam cause fewer drug interactions and less hypersensitivity than older ones. However, they do not reduce the prevalence of drug resistant epilepsy or prevent the development of epilepsy in patients at high risk, such as those with a traumatic

Stiripentol for focal refractory epilepsy. BACKGROUND: Nearly 30%of people with epilepsy do not have their seizures controlled with current treatments. Stiripentol is a new antiepileptic drug(AED) developed in France and recently approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for the treatment of Dravet syndrome as an adjunctive therapy with valproate and clobazam, with a promising effect. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the efficacy and tolerability of stiripentol as add-on treatment for patients (...) with focal refractory epilepsy taking any AEDs. SEARCH METHODS: We searched the Cochrane Epilepsy Group Specialized Register (19 August 2013), Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials(CENTRAL Issue 7, The Cochrane Library July 2013), MEDLINE (Ovid) (1946 to 19 August 2013) and EMBASE (31 May 2012).(The last search in EMBASE was made on 31th May 2012.

Epilepsy Epilepsy - NICE CKS Clinical Knowledge Summaries Share Epilepsy - Summary An epileptic seizure is a transient disturbance of consciousness, behaviour, emotion, motor function, or sensation, due to abnormal electrical activity in the brain. Epilepsy is a disease of the brain defined by any of the following: At least two unprovoked seizures occurring more than 24 hours apart. One unprovoked seizure and a probability of further seizures similar to the general recurrence risk after two (...) unprovoked seizures, occurring over the next 10 years. Diagnosis of an epilepsy syndrome. Status epilepticus is a continuous seizure for 30 minutes or longer, or recurrent seizures without regaining consciousness lasting 30 minutes or longer. In about two thirds of people with epilepsy there is no anatomically identifiable cause (idiopathic epilepsy).

138. Subpial transection surgery for epilepsy.

Subpial transection surgery for epilepsy. BACKGROUND: Nearly 30% of patients with epilepsy continue to have seizures in spite of several antiepileptic drug (AED) regimens. In such cases they are regarded as having refractory, or uncontrolled epilepsy.There is no universally accepted definition for uncontrolled or medically refractory epilepsy, but for the purpose of this review, we will consider seizures to be drug resistant if they failed to respond to a minimum of two AEDs. It is believed (...) that early surgical intervention may prevent seizures at a younger age and improve the intellectual and social status of children. There are many types of surgery for refractory epilepsy with subpial transection being one. OBJECTIVES: Our main aim is to determine the benefits and adverse effects of subpial transection for partial-onset seizures and generalised tonic-clonic seizures in children and adults.

140. Premature mortality in epilepsy and the role of psychiatric comorbidity: a total population study.

Premature mortality in epilepsy and the role of psychiatric comorbidity: a total population study. BACKGROUND: Epilepsy is associated with high rates of premature mortality, but the contribution of psychiatric comorbidity is uncertain. We assessed the prevalence and risks of premature mortality from external causes such as suicide, accidents, and assaults in people with epilepsy with and without psychiatric comorbidity. METHODS: We studied all individuals born in Sweden between 1954 and 2009 (...) with inpatient and outpatient diagnoses of epilepsy (n=69,995) for risks and causes of premature mortality. Patients were compared with age-matched and sex-matched general population controls (n=660,869) and unaffected siblings (n=81,396). Sensitivity analyses were done to investigate whether these odds differed by sex, age, seizure types, comorbid psychiatric diagnosis, and different time periods after epilepsy diagnosis. RESULTS: 6155 (8.8%) people with epilepsy died during follow-up, at a median age of 34
