Status epilepticus (SE) is the most extreme form of epilepsy. It describes a prolonged seizure that may occur in patients with previous epilepsy or in acute disorders of the central nervous system. It is one of the most common neurologic emergencies, with an incidence of up to 41 per 100,000 per year and an estimated mortality is 20%. The three major determinants of prognosis are the duration of SE, patient age, and the underlying cause. Common and easily recognized causes of SE include… Expand
Etiological assessment of status epilepticus.
TLDR
An overview of current knowledge of SE etiologies and a pragmatic approach for carrying out an etiological assessment based on the following steps are presented. Expand
Clinical Features of Refractory Status Epilepticus in Various Conditions
TLDR
Refractory status epilepticus (RSE) is a group of clinical manifestations that are caused by a variety of pathologies, and most result from acute serious brain injury, such as hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, autoimmune encephalitis, and infectiousEncephalitis. Expand
Clinical features associated with convulsive status epilepticus in patients with epilepsy
TLDR
There is a clear relationship between the occurrence of SE and mental retardation and treatment with polytherapy in patients with epilepsy, and Symptomatic/cryptogenic etiology, early onset of epilepsy, high frequency of seizures and presence of abnormalities in neuroimaging are associated with SE. Expand
Status epilepticus.
TLDR
This review discusses the existing literature on the epidemiological aspects, clinical approach, treatment and prognostication ofStatus epilepticus, a neurological emergency resulting from prolonged Clinical or electroencephalographic seizure activity. Expand
25 years of advances in the definition, classification and treatment of status epilepticus
TLDR
Over the past 25 years major advances in definition, classification and understanding of the mechanisms of Status epilepticus have been achieved, and up to 40% of patients in early status cannot be controlled with first line drugs. Expand
Prognosis of status epilepticus (SE): Relationship between SE duration and subsequent development of epilepsy
TLDR
In patients with SE, the longer duration is associated with an increased risk of subsequent epilepsy at follow-up, mainly in symptomatic SE due to an acute lesion, and it is unclear if it might be the result of a more severe injury causing both prolonged seizures and subsequent epilepsy, and whether more aggressive treatment in this group might avoid this possibility. Expand
Management of Autoimmune Status Epilepticus
TLDR
The goal is to maximize the effectiveness of anticonvulsant agents and find an optimal combination of therapies while undergoing immunomodulatory therapy to reduce morbidity and mortality. Expand
A tiered strategy for investigating status epilepticus
In status epilepticus the imperative to start anti-seizure therapy, initially subjugates the need to investigate the cause. Once treatment is initiated this balance shifts in favour of identifying:Expand
Introduction: The causes of epilepsy
TLDR
This supplement reports on ‘‘The Causes of Epilepsy’’ Teaching Course at the 10th European Congress on Epileptology, London, United Kingdom, October 2012, which provided a unique opportunity for an audience primarily of epileptologists to hear world authorities present and discuss their understanding of the causes of epilepsy in adults and children. Expand
Cost of status epilepticus in a tertiary care hospital in India
TLDR
Acute non-CNS pathology is largely responsible for the high cost of SE, particularly refractory SE requiring mechanical ventilation, as evaluated in an Indian tertiary care teaching hospital in Lucknow India. Expand

TLDR
The etiology, clinical features and outcome of generalized major motor status epilepticus in 98 patients over the age of 14 years have been reviewed and it was found that a poor outcome of the status was more likely as its duration increased, and the morbidity rate was 12.5 percent among patients.

TLDR
Focal clinical signs were more frequent in CPSE; a fluctuating level of consciousness was more often present in ASE; and in three patients inadequate treatment probably contributed to morbidity. Expand

TLDR
These findings represent the first multivariate analysis of predictive indicators of mortality in SE and demonstrate that specific factors influence mortality rate in SE. Expand

TLDR
Surviving a first SE episode could lower the mortality and morbidity of subsequent episodes, suggesting that underlying aetiology, rather than SE per se, is the major determinant of outcome. Expand

TLDR
Prevention of this most severe form of SE treated in the NICU is frequently refractory to first line anticonvulsant drugs, which is associated with markedly poor outcome, in particular, the development of post-SE symptomatic epilepsy. Expand

TLDR
It is proposed that the definition of EPC is best restricted to "continuous muscle jerks of cortical origin', and continuous muscle jerking that arises from other sites in the nervous system should be termed "myoclonia continua'. Expand

TLDR
Cognitive decline, motor deficits and pharmacoresistance to drugs were significantly seen among children with Type 2 EPC, and patients with Type 1 EPC had mild impairment of functional status with good response to treatment. Expand
