PURPOSE We examined the ictal discharges at the end of pediatric seizures and categorized the various patterns. One particular pattern, termed "abruptly attenuated termination" was studied in detail. METHODS Ictal segments captured on video-EEG monitoring during a 26-month interval were analyzed for a variety of ictal termination patterns, including one that we rigorously defined as abruptly attenuated termination pattern (AAT). We studied the associations between AAT and the other ictal EEG… CONTINUE READING
