7 Possible Causes for Bisynchronous Slow-Waves

  • Brain Concussion

    A brain concussion is a still incompletely defined syndrome of traumatic brain injury (TBI) that causes a spectrum of symptoms without evident structural damage to the brain. A headache, cognitive deficits, emotional instability, sleep disturbances, and an overall change in mental state after trauma are highly[…][symptoma.com]

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

    Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews Background Raised intracranial pressure (ICP) is an important complication of severe brain injury, and is associated with high mortality. Barbiturates are believed to reduce ICP by suppressing cerebral metabolism, thus reducing cerebral metabolic demands and cerebral blood[…][doi.org]

  • Epilepsy

    OBJECTIVE: To study seizure control and rates of foetal malformation in pregnancies of women with epilepsy treated with antiepileptic drug polytherapy. METHODS: The use of conventional statistical methods to analyse the Australian Pregnancy Register records of 1810 pregnancies in women with epilepsy, 508 treated[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Subacute Sclerosing Panencephalitis

    The electroencephalographic (EEG) pattern is characterized by periodic complexes that are disease-specific (generalized bisynchronous and symmetrical slow waves of high amplitude[orpha.net]

  • Idiopathic Hemiconvulsion-Hemiplegia Syndrome

    Whether ictal or interictal, the slow spike-and-wave pattern consists of 1- to 2.5-Hz bisynchronous sharp - and slow-wave complexes.[aibolita.com]

  • Non-epileptic Convulsion

    The EEG in myoclonic status epilepticus may show generalized, bisynchronous polyspikes, spikes, or sharp waves preceding and time-locked with the clinical myoclonus, superimposed[emedicine.medscape.com] […] on a diffusely slow and suppressed background.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Atonic Seizures
