297 Possible Causes for Generalized Asynchronous Slow-Waves, Occipital Focal Spikes, Urine Organic Acids Abnormal

  • West Syndrome

    Urine organic acids, amino acids and serum biotinidase are done. CT or MRI scan of the brain is done before the treatment is started.[epainassist.com] Hypsarrhythmia represents a completely chaotic and disorganized background pattern consisting of high amplitude slow waves and spikes that are asynchronous, non-rhythmic,[web.archive.org] Interictal EEG displays diffuse and asynchronous high voltage spikes and slow waves suggesting the hypsarrhythmic pattern. B.[bmcneurol.biomedcentral.com]

  • Epilepsy

  • Benign Adult Familial Myoclonic Epilepsy

    .  Previously called early-benign childhood seizures with occipital spikes  Childhood onset (peak 5 years).  Focal autonomic seizures or autonomic status epilepticus, frequently[slideshare.net] Massa et al. identified the following EEG characteristics as predictive of a "complicated" course: intermittent slow wave focus, multiple, asynchronous spike wave foci, spike[euroformhealthcare.biz] Benign Rolandic epilepsy benign childhood epilepsy with centrotemporal spikes benign focal epilepsy of childhood: Epilepsy characterized by partial (focal) seizures, often[childneurologyfoundation.org]

  • Encephalopathy

    *Frontal dominance (FIRDA) --non specific ,diffuse encephalopathy, if focal ?[slideshare.net] Prominent Generalized asynchronous slow waves and often also causes bisynchronous slow waves and decrease of alpha rhythm. 12.[slideshare.net] *Repetitive and fairly stereotyped waveforms appearing at regular intervals, sharps/spike waves or complex discharges.[slideshare.net]

  • 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

    Skye McDonald, Leanne Togher, Christopher Code Psychology Press, 1999 - 338 Seiten There are very few books available which are concerned with the unique communication problems that can come with traumatic brain injury (TBI). In recent years there has emerged a realisation that these difficulties in communication[…][books.google.com]

  • Idiopathic Generalized Epilepsy

    The EEG signature of IGE is bisynchronous, symmetric, and generalized spike-wave complex; although focal, irregular, and so called "fragments" of discharges are not uncommon[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other characteristic EEG features include polyspikes, polyspike-wave discharges, occipital intermittent rhythmic delta activity, and photoparoxysmal response.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Generalized Clonic or Tonic-Clonic Seizures

    ‘Contrary to popular folk belief, nothing should be placed in the mouth during the seizure. Severe injury could occur.’ Generalized tonic clonic seizures (grand mal seizures) are the most common and best known type of generalized seizure. They begin with stiffening of the limbs (the tonic phase), followed by jerking[…][epilepsynw.org]

  • Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy

    Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME) is a type of epilepsy that starts in in childhood or the teen years. People who have it wake up from sleep with quick, jerking movements of their arms and legs. These are called myoclonic jerks. Even if you don’t have epilepsy, you’ve probably had these jerks that jolt you awake,[…][webmd.com]
