Abstract

PURPOSE The objective of this study was to estimate the expected cost-utility and cost-effectiveness of the ketogenic diet (KD), vague nerve stimulation (VNS) and care as usual (CAU), using a decision analytic model with a 5-year time horizon. METHODS A Markov decision analytical model was constructed to estimate the incremental costs, quality-adjusted… (More)
