Electrographically confirmed seizures in preterm and term neonates were compared with respect to clinical correlates, incidence, associated brain lesions, and risk for neurologic sequelae. Over a 4-year period, 92 neonates from a neonatal intensive care unit population of 4020 admissions at a large obstetric hospital with 40,845 livebirths had(More)
Of 1,114 EEG recordings obtained for 592 neonates, focal periodic discharges were noted on 57 (5%) of recordings for 34 neonates (26 preterm and eight term). Periodic lateralized epileptiform discharges (PLEDs) were noted on four of these recordings. Sixteen patients (47%) with focal periodic discharges also had electrographic seizures on the same or a(More)
OBJECTIVE Altered physiologic behaviors during sleep have been described for healthy preterm neonates at post-conceptional fullterm ages. These differences may reflect brain dysmaturity as a result of conditions of prematurity. The present study examines if differences in state-specific temperature changes exist in a healthy preterm cohort as another(More)
The effect of gestational age on neonatal ictal and interictal durations has not been investigated. Sixty-eight neonates with 644 electrographic seizures were identified retrospectively. Thirty-five full-term (FT) neonates were compared with 33 preterm (PT) neonates. Eighteen older preterm infants (OPT) [> 31 weeks estimated gestational age (EGA)] were also(More)
Placental specimens were reviewed from 73 singleton pregnancies of women whose offspring received electroencephalogram (EEG) studies in the neonate period. A group of 43 neonates (postconception age [PCA] 23-44 weeks) with electrically confirmed seizures in the immediate neonate period were compared with 30 healthy preterm and term infants of comparable PCA(More)
OBJECTIVES EEG-sleep organization of asphyxiated and non-asphyxiated full-term neonates was compared during the first 3 days after birth. BACKGROUND Aggressive fetal and neonatal resuscitative efforts have reduced the severe expression of the neonatal brain disorder termed hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy. Neonates may alternatively express altered(More)
One hundred ninety-three neonates with seizures were available on a neonatal seizure database, which included intrapartum and neonatal factors such as labor duration, fetal heart rate abnormalities, cord blood gas values, Apgar scores and clinical signs of encephalopathy. Regression analyses (analysis of variance) were performed on the entire cohort as well(More)
