Cardiogenic syncope diagnosed as epileptic seizures: the importance of ECG during video-EEG recording.

We describefourpatientswith a previous diagnosis of epilepsy. After reviewing the ECG during the video-EEG recording, cardiogenic syncope, resulting f...

Convulsive Syncope Induced by Ventricular Arrhythmia Masquerading as Epileptic Seizures: Case Report and Literature Review.
It is important but difficult to distinguish convulsive syncope from epileptic seizure in many patients. We report a case of a man who presented to emergency department after several witnessed seizure-like episodes. He had a previous medical history

Cardiorespiratory abnormalities during epileptic seizures.
Sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP) is a leading cause of death in young and otherwise healthy patients with epilepsy, and sudden death is at least 20 times more common in epilepsy patients as compared to patients without epilepsy. A signific

Cardiac arrhythmias during or after epileptic seizures.
Seizure-related cardiac arrhythmias are frequently reported and have been implicated as potential pathomechanisms of Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP). We attempted to identify clinical profiles associated with various (post)ictal cardiac a

Cardiac asystoles misdiagnosed as epileptic seizures.
We report a case of a 78-year-old man who presented several episodes of transient loss of consciousness preceded by sensation of ascending heat from the feet, with increasing frequency and duration within a few weeks. One month later he was admitted

Detection of epileptic seizures from single lead ECG by means of phase rectified signal averaging.
Epileptic seizures have a clear effect on the regulatory mechanisms of the autonomic nervous system, especially on the cardiac and respiratory controls. Changes in heart rate and respiration are well known to occur around the onset of the seizure. Th

Cardiac arrest associated with epileptic seizures: A case report with simultaneous EEG and ECG.
Ictal asystole is a rare, probably underestimated manifestation of epileptic seizures whose pathophysiology is still debated. This report describes two patients who had cardiac asystole at the end of their seizure. The first patient was a 13-year-old

Subclinical seizures during intracranial EEG recording: are they clinically significant?
To evaluate the clinical significance, characteristics and prognostic value of subclinical seizures of temporal and extra-temporal origin.

Trichotillomania and non-epileptic seizures as sleep-related dissociative phenomena.
The occurrence of non-epileptic seizures (NES) and trichotillomania during sleep is rare. We describe the case of an adult woman with a personal history of childhood maltreatment and psychiatric morbidity (major depression, trichotillomania, and conv

Noninvasive Recording of True-to-Form Fetal ECG during the Third Trimester of Pregnancy.
Objective. The aim of the study was to develop a complex electrophysiological measurement system (hardware and software) which uses the methods of electrophysiology and provides significant information about the intrauterine status of the fetus, inte

Nonketotic hyperglycemia-related epileptic seizures.
Nonketotic hyperglycemia-related seizures (NKH) are rare. We report a case of NKH-related seizures in a patient following a traumatic brain injury.
