Improving the inter-rater agreement of hypsarrhythmia using a simplified EEG grading scale for children with infantile spasms

Abstract

BACKGROUND There is poor inter-rater agreement in determining the presence or absence of hypsarrhythmia among patients with infantile spasms. Yet, remission of hypsarrhythmia has been used as a clinical and research outcome measure. Two important features of hypsarrhythmia are the burden of epileptiform discharges and the amplitudes of background slow waves… (More)
