Clinical profile of patients with nascent alcohol related seizures.
The aim of this study is to characterize the clinical profile of patients with alcohol related seizures (ARS) and to identify the prevalence of idiopathic generalized epilepsy (IGE) in the same.

"QT clock" to improve detection of QT prolongation in long QT syndrome patients.
The QT interval is a risk marker for cardiac events such as torsades de pointes. However, QT measurements obtained from a 12-lead ECG during clinic hours may not capture the full extent of a patient's daily QT range.

Diagnostic value of T-wave morphology changes during "QT stretching" in patients with long QT syndrome.
Specific T-wave patterns on the resting electrocardiogram (ECG) aid in diagnosing long QT syndrome (LQTS) and identifying the specific genotype. However, provocation tests often are required to establish a diagnosis when the QT interval is borderline

Improved Clinical Risk Stratification in Patients with Long QT Syndrome? Novel Insights from Multi-Channel ECGs.
We investigated whether multichannel ECG-recordings are useful to risk-stratify patients with congenital long-QT syndrome (LQTS) for risk of sudden cardiac death under optimized medical treatment.

Genetic biomarkers for the risk of seizures in long QT syndrome.
The coprevalence, severity, and biomarkers for seizures and arrhythmias in long QT syndrome (LQTS) remain incompletely understood.

Genetics of long QT syndrome.
Long QT syndrome (LQTS) is a potentially life-threatening cardiac arrhythmia characterized by delayed myocardial repolarization that produces QT prolongation and increased risk for torsades des pointes (TdP)-triggered syncope, seizures, and sudden ca

Clinical profile of Solitary Seizures.
Solitary seizure is one of the controversies in neurology. This study was taken up to study the clinical profile of solitary seizure and the factors related to seizure recurrence with a view to evolve guidelines for management.

[Inborn long QT-syndrome in childhood: clinical presentation and treatment].
During the last decade, the understanding of the long QT-syndrome (LQTS) as an inherited arrhythmogenic disease has dramatically increased. The LQTS has been recognized to be a heterogeneous family of ion-channel disorders caused by numerous mutation
