activity was observed in 4 patients (33%) and occurred during 4 nursing interventions (0.4% of all nursing interventions).
Furthermore, our control groups of patients with drug resistant epilepsy due to bilateral hippocampal sclerosis had similar frequent interictal epileptiform
activities but higher number of sleep spindles.
###Day 12: Persistent diffuse encephalopathy worse on the right with significantly reduced epileptiform
discharges on the right
In one study, LEV was given to children with RLS, who also had interictal epileptiform
EEG (Figure 1(d)) at that time showed a worsening seizure activity pattern which initially started as focal left frontal lobe diffuse spike-wave complexes but now had progressed into generalized epileptiform
discharges with development of nonconvulsive status epilepticus (NCSE).
explored the state transitions of networks of epileptiform
discharges in hippocampal slices based on clustering of degree vectors and identified two network states during the ictal-like discharges which represented tonic and clonic phases, respectively .
However, interpreting periodic abnormalities in patients with impaired consciousness is complicated, particularly when epileptiform
activity and encephalopathy coexist.
EEG findings may include slow activity focally or as background, with or without epileptiform
EEG was performed while inpatient was negative for epileptiform
The initial two EEG studies were unremarkable, without triphasic waves, slowing of the baseline rhythm, or epileptiform
When the loss of consciousness and epileptiform
abnormality determined at electroencephalography were evaluated together, epilepsy was suspected and the patient was started on antiepileptic therapy.
The initial electroencephalogram demonstrated a disorganized, high-amplitude background and multifocal, interictal epileptiform
discharges consistent with hypsarrhythmia.
