Although inpatient epilepsy monitoring units (EMUs) are generally safe, seizures in this setting can still produce significant morbidity. The MORTEMUS (MORTality in Epilepsy Monitoring Unit Study) study revealed that the most feared consequence of an unattended seizure-sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP)-does occur rarely in the EMU. Nearly all cases identified in that study occurred in the evening. The hypothesis for this study is that unwitnessed seizures would be more likely to occur during the night shift, and that response times to seizures would be slower at night, due to multiple variables...

BACKGROUND: The goal of intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring (IONM) is to minimize neurologic injury during surgery, yet patients still emerge with postoperative deficits. Few studies focus on outcomes relative to IONM alarms and interventions in this population. The authors sought to analyze the influence of IONM alarms with and without surgical intervention on patient outcome in spinal surgical patients who suffered immediate postoperative neurologic deficits. METHODS: Of 62,038 spinal surgeries with multimodality IONM, 90 patients with new or worsened postoperative neurologic deficits and whose outcomes were reported immediate to the surgery and at discharge were analyzed...

Electroneurography is one of the most useful tests for evaluating facial nerve function. Because many patients with peripheral facial palsy complain of difficulty with eye closure, recording compound muscle action potentials (CMAPs) of the orbicularis oculi (OC) is important. However, electromyographers often encounter OC CMAPs that have an initial positivity. In the present study, facial motor potentials of a healthy subject were recorded using an electrode on the acromion and electrical activities over the facial muscles were evaluated...

Intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring (IONM) consists of a group of neurodiagnostic techniques that assess the nervous system's functional integrity during surgical operations. A retrospective analysis of a pediatric female patient was conducted who underwent 12 operations for the correction of scoliosis, tethered cord, and split spinal cord wherein IONM played an important role. From age 3 to 6, she underwent six procedures including a release of the tethered cord, resection of the filum terminale, removal of a T11-T12 bony spur, release of L3 adhesions, repair of subcutaneous meningocele, and correction of scoliosis with a vertical expandable prosthetic titanium rod (VEPTR) technique without the use of IONM...

Patients can have more than one neurological problem, and sorting out acute from chronic disease can be challenging. The authors report a middle-aged patient who presented with ataxia, right hemiparesis, and abnormal nystagmus. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed a Chiari and an arachnoid cyst with brainstem compression that appeared to explain his abnormal examination. Shortly after admission, he was noted to have intermittent abnormal behavior and confusion. History from family revealed significant acute and chronic psychiatric problems that appeared to explain his abnormal mental status; this delayed the diagnosis of intermittent complex partial seizures...

BACKGROUND: Uncontrolled seizures in children can contribute to irreversible cognitive impairment and developmental delay, in addition to placing them at risk for sudden unexplained death in epileptic patients (SUDEP). Since its introduction at Saint Ann Hospital in Paris in the 1960s, stereoelectroencephalography (SEEG) is increasingly being utilized at epilepsy centers in the United States as an invasive tool to help localize the seizure focus in drug-resistant focal epilepsy. INDICATIONS: Children with symptomatic epilepsy, commonly due to cortical dysplasia and dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumor (DNET), may benefit from SEEG investigation...

INTRODUCTION: This study aimed at evaluating the value added by 24-hour ambulatory EEG (AEEG) by comparing the presence of epileptiform discharges (EDs) between the first 30 minutes of recording versus the following 23.5 hours. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective review of AEEGs of subjects divided into two groups, epilepsy and undiagnosed episodes of loss of consciousness, was conducted. AEEGs were divided into early EEG (E-EEG) (first 30 minutes) and extended EEG (remaining 23...

Febrile infection-related epilepsy syndrome (FIRES) is a catastrophic epileptic syndrome that strikes previously healthy children aged 3-15 years and has an unknown pathogenesis and few treatments. These children experience a nonspecific febrile illness that is followed by prolonged refractory status epilepticus. Although the etiology is unknown, FIRES has a biphasic presentation, with the acute phase beginning as seizure activity lasting 1-12 weeks, then followed by the chronic phase, which is characterized by refractory seizures that cluster every 2-4 weeks, and may continue to be multifocal and independent...

Synchronous video recording can be helpful in EEG recordings, especially in recognition of seizures and in rejection of artifacts. However, video recordings themselves are also subject to the risk of contamination by artifacts. We report a unique case in which a digital video artifact was identified, occurring during synchronous video-EEG recording, albeit independently of the EEG tracing itself. A synchronous digital video-EEG recording was performed on a 67-year-old male who presented in focal motor status epilepticus...
