• Sabril
  • Alternatively, there is a prospective observational arm that subjects who are about to take Sabril as treatment for seizures associated with Tuberous Sclerosis may join. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • medically
  • citation needed] Automatism itself is medically harmless, and unlike other seizure types, the subject's actions are less likely to result in physical injury in the subject or others. (wikipedia.org)
  • onset
  • On April 10, 2018, the Food and Drug Administration approved everolimus tablets for oral suspension (Afinitor Disperz, Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corp.) for the adjunctive treatment of adult and pediatric patients aged 2 years and older with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC)-associated partial-onset seizures. (flasco.org)
  • Approval was based on EXIST-3 (NCT01713946), a randomized, double-blind, multicenter trial in 366 patients with TSC-associated partial-onset seizures, inadequate seizure control with ≥ 2 sequential anti-epileptic drug (AED) regimens, and a TSC diagnosis (modified Gomez criteria). (flasco.org)
  • Additionally, eligible patients were required to have ≥ 16 partial-onset seizures during the 8-week baseline phase on a stable AED regimen. (flasco.org)
  • The term DNT was first introduced in 1988 by Daumas-Duport, terming it dysembryoplastic, suggesting a dysembryoplastic origin in early onset seizures, and neuroepithelial to allow the wide range of possible varieties of tumours to be put into the category. (wikipedia.org)
  • The mean age of onset of seizures for children with DNTs is 8.1 years old. (wikipedia.org)
  • Complex partial seizure Dissociation Hallucination Paresthesia Persistent aura without infarction Simple partial seizure Synesthesia CADASIL Sudden Onset Panic: Epileptic Aura or Panic Disorder? (wikipedia.org)
  • Most patients develop seizures the first few years of life, but the age of onset ranges from ages 1 to 17. (wikipedia.org)
  • A higher degree[clarification needed] (percentage) of mosaicism appears to be associated with earlier age of seizure onset and presence of malformations. (wikipedia.org)
  • Since the range in age of onset of seizures and IQ for a given mosaic ratio is relatively wide, prediction of phenotype based on the mosaicism ratio is somewhat limited. (wikipedia.org)
  • Phenytoin
  • Phenytoin is used to prevent and control seizures (also called an anticonvulsant or antiepileptic drug). (rxlist.com)
  • The woman had previously been tried on a combination of phenobarbital and phenytoin when she was thought to have only seizures, followed by phenobarbital combined phenytoin and procainamide. (wikipedia.org)
  • automatisms
  • In some more complex automatisms, the subject enters into the behaviors of sleepwalking while fully awake up until the moment it starts. (wikipedia.org)
  • These are known as automatisms and include simple activities like smacking of the lips or more complex activities such as attempts to pick something up. (wikipedia.org)
  • sensory
  • Sensory seizures begin with numbness or tingling in one area. (encyclopedia.com)
  • These include sensory changes if the sensory cortex is involved by the seizure, visual field defects if the occipital lobe is involved, and aphasia if speech, comprehension or conducting fibers are involved. (wikipedia.org)
  • Typically
  • Typically, complex partial seizures last between 30 and 90 seconds, and are often followed by a period of disorientation, confusion and/or fatigue. (sabril.net)
  • After the active portion of a seizure, there is typically a period of confusion called the postictal period before a normal level of consciousness returns. (wikipedia.org)
  • phase
  • The muscles become rigid for about 30 seconds during the tonic phase of the seizure and alternately contract and relax during the clonic phase, which lasts 30-60 seconds. (encyclopedia.com)
  • The issue is further complicated by the fact that some strokes trigger a focal seizure during the acute phase. (wikipedia.org)
  • occurs
  • A primary generalized seizure occurs when electrical discharges begin in both halves (hemispheres) of the brain at the same time. (encyclopedia.com)
  • disorientation
  • The person often does not fall over and may return to normal right after the seizure ends, though there may also be a period of post-ictal disorientation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Auditory
  • Auditory seizures affect the part of the brain that controls hearing and cause the patient to imagine voices, music, and other sounds. (encyclopedia.com)
  • baseline
  • The major efficacy measure was the percentage reduction in average weekly seizures during a 12-week treatment period compared with the average weekly seizures during the 8-week baseline period. (flasco.org)
  • secondary
  • The first case is a nineteen-year-old female patient suffering from partial complex seizures , secondary to sub ependymal grey matter heteropia ( Figure 1 ) along the left ventricle. (omicsonline.org)
  • The second case is a 64-year-old man suffering from partial complex seizures secondary to unilateral perisylvian syndrome, a type of polymicrogyria presenting as cortical dysplasia along the left lateral sulcus ( Figure 2 ). (omicsonline.org)
  • auras
  • Complex visual auras can include people, scenes, and objects which results from stimulation of the temporo-occipital junction and is lateralized to one hemifield. (wikipedia.org)
