1,735 Possible Causes for Drop Attacks, Early Repolarization, Myoclonic Jerking

  • Myoclonic-Astatic Epilepsy

    The involvement of these structures might predispose to the typical seizure semiology of myoclonic jerks observed in MAE.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] OBJECTIVES: We studied epileptic drop attacks (EDA) in symptomatic epilepsy of early childhood by means of video-polygraphic recordings and compared clinico-electrical differences[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] jerks, by using burst-locked EEG averaging where necessary.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Absence Seizure

    […] seizures), and juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME; generalised syndrome characterised by myoclonic jerks, generalised tonic-clonic seizures, and, less commonly, absence seizures[bestpractice.bmj.com] Seizures or Drop Attacks brief seizures, short duration cause an unexpected and rapid fall to the ground can result from tonic (stiffening) or atonic (sudden loss of tone[thebarrow.org] jerks.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Idiopathic Generalized Epilepsy

    Myoclonic-astatic seizures consist of symmetric myoclonic jerks followed by periods of absent muscle tone that can result in falls.[symptoma.com] This case study highlights the need to consider psychological factors when evaluating otherwise unexplained drop attacks.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This epilepsy is characterized by absence seizures concurrent with myoclonic jerks, typically occurring several times daily.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Epilepsy

    So the jerks were considered as cortical origin and generalized myoclonic seizure was confirmed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Atonic seizures, also known as drop attacks, drop seizures or akinetic epileptic drop attacks, may involve a sudden loss of muscle tone, a head drop or leg weakening.[uchospitals.edu] Lennox-Gestaut syndrome or other epilepsies with drop attacks. Epilepsies where the seizure focus is in an area essential for function.[neurosurgery.ucla.edu]

  • Syncope

    jerking is common in syncope.[emed.ie] Why is ‘Benign’ early repolarization not a benign condition in patients with syncope? Which children with syncope should be admitted? and many more….[emergencymedicinecases.com] It has many causes, and is distinct from vertigo, seizures, coma, falls, psychogenic pseudosyncope, drop attacks, transient ischaemic attacks, and states of altered consciousness[bestpractice.bmj.com]

  • Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome

    […] to 49% reduction in atonic seizures, 16 participants had 0% to 24% reduction in atonic seizures and one participant had an increase in their total number of atonic seizures[doi.org] In such cases, massive myoclonic jerks, myoclonic-atonic attacks, as well as atonic seizures may occur, though much less frequent and severe than the other manifestations.[epilepsyontario.org] Lennox and Davis first correlated the slow spike-and-wave EEG pattern with a distinctive group of clinical manifestations including specific seizure types (myoclonic jerks[medlink.com]

  • Sick Sinus Syndrome

    Syncope may be accompanied by myoclonic jerks (convulsive syncope), but postictal confusion is absent.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The simultaneous occurrence of V596M and R16472H may increase the severity of early repolarization.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The present study identified a family with primary manifestation of sinus bradycardia (five individuals) along with early repolarization (four individuals) and atrial fibrillation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Carotid Sinus Syncope

    Patients in whom the cardiac arrest had lasted 14 seconds had 1 or 2 generalized myoclonic jerks.[ajnr.org] In patients with syncope, the clinical significance of the early repolarization pattern is unknown. Recommendations for Early Repolarization Pattern 5.[ahajournals.org] Syncope Deglutitional Syncopes Drop Attack Drop Attacks Effort Syncope Effort Syncopes Episode, Syncopal Fainting Hyperventilation Syncope Hyperventilation Syncopes Micturition[decs.bvs.br]

  • Generalized Motor Seizure

    Atonic seizures (also called drop attacks) With atonic seizures, there is a sudden loss of muscle tone and the child may fall from a standing position or suddenly drop his[chp.edu] Myoclonic jerks. Increase in heart rate and blood pressure. Diaphragmatic muscles go into spasm.[dentalcare.com] (also known as drop attacks) clonic seizures tonic seizures myoclonic seizures Additional Seizure Types Expand Additional Seizure Types Section Infantile Spasms Infantile[epilepsyontario.org]

  • Cocaine Abuse

    Effects of cocaine abuse on the oral mucosa are still poorly defined. Herein, a case of an 18-year-old male patient with a 15-day history of persistent painful ulcers and aphthous lesions of unknown etiology and with no other remarkable manifestations, is presented. All of the laboratory tests performed showed to[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
