Nonconvulsive electrographic seizures after traumatic brain injury result in a delayed, prolonged increase in intracranial pressure and metabolic crisis
The data suggest that post‐traumatic seizures represent a therapeutic target for patients with traumatic brain injury and increase in episodic as well as long‐lasting increases in intracranial pressure and microdialysis lactate/pyruvate ratio.
Nonconvulsive seizures after traumatic brain injury are associated with hippocampal atrophy
Acute posttraumatic nonconvulsive seizures occur frequently after TBI and, in a selected subgroup, appear to be associated with disproportionate long-term hippocampal atrophy, which suggests anatomic damage is potentially elicited by non Convulsive seizures in the acute postinjury setting.
