Did you mean: Involuntary Movements, lt 25 hz, spike and slow waves, Paroxysmal Activity - Spikes

  • Epilepsy

    At 9 years, video EEG monitoring showed a striking pattern of interictal slow spike-wave and paroxysmal fast activity, maximal over the right, initially unaffected, hemisphere[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] waves.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It is characterized by recurrent seizures, which are brief episodes of involuntary movement that may involve a part of the body (partial) or the entire body (generalized),[web.archive.org]

  • Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy

    We applied dipole modeling and brain distributed source analysis to find current sources comprising spikes and slow waves of polyspike and wave complexes (PSWC) in patients[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] characterized by abrupt, repetitive, stereotyped and involuntary movements (motor tics) or sounds (phonic tics).[omicsonline.org] Each SWD was divided into six distinct temporal phases: spike onset, spike peak, slow-wave onset, slow-wave ascending, slow-wave peak, and slow-wave descending phases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Idiopathic Generalized Epilepsy

    Generalized spike-wave discharges and diffuse paroxysmal fast activity were categorized as interictal and ictal, based on duration of less than 10 seconds or greater, respectively[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] and slow waves during clonic phase 70% are seizure -free under treatment In some cases, no medical therapy is necessary avoid triggers Epilepsy with myoclonic-atonic seizures[amboss.com] Panayiotopoulos et al. (1994) [21] observed that 51.5% of patients had spike/multiple spike-slow wave discharges.[annalsofian.org]

  • Absence Seizure

    The discharge is heterogeneous, often asymmetrical and may include irregular spike and slow wave complexes, fast and other paroxysmal activity.[en.wikipedia.org] Other associated symptoms that may be present include Lip smacking or chewing movements of the mouth Involuntary movement of hands Finger rubbing Fluttering of eyelids Stopping[medindia.net] Red flags include: Unexplained staring spells Involuntary movements Unexplained confusion Severe headaches Less-specific signs can include: Sleepiness Disrupted sleep Unexplained[autismspeaks.org]

  • Toxic Encephalopathy

    […] discharges (PLEDS). [37] In hypokalemia, diffuse slow activity can be seen together with paroxysmal delta/theta activity, as well as focal paroxysms of sharp waves and spike-waves[neurologyindia.com] Some the most common symptoms of toxic encephalopathy include: Altered mental status Increased irrationality Memory loss Seizures Fatigue Involuntary movements Depression[winstonbriggslaw.com] movements Depression Toxic encephalopathy can cause permanent brain damage and is considered irreversible in many cases.[keefelaw.com]

  • Juvenile Absence Epilepsy

    The discharge is heterogeneous, often asymmetrical and may include irregular spike and slow wave complexes, fast and other paroxysmal activity.[en.wikipedia.org] All patients had minimum twice EEG recordings and all had typical 3-Hz generalized spike and slow-wave discharges at least on one EEG.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] They are characterized by single or repetitive, bilateral, abrupt, symmetric, arrhythmic, involuntary movements, predominantly involving the shoulders and arms; however, they[scielo.br]

  • Benign Adult Familial Myoclonic Epilepsy

    This was referred to as posterior paroxysmal activity by Holmes et al.[euroformhealthcare.biz] […] and slow-wave complexes at 3 Hz associated with myoclonus.  Interictal EEG is variable and ranges from normal to background slowing and generalized spike and slow-wave activity[slideshare.net] There is a presentation of clinically-focused information regarding the full spectrum of neurological and psychiatric conditions characterized by involuntary movements.[books.google.it]

  • Subacute Sclerosing Panencephalitis

    Characteristic EEG changes evolve during the second stage of the disease and show paroxysmal spiking at regular intervals with depressed activity between spikes.[healio.com] The EEG often shows widespread cortical dysfunction with a burst-suppression pattern of high-amplitude slow-wave or spike -and-slow-wave complexes occurring at a rate of every[epilepsy.com] A 20-year-old woman with subacute sclerosing panencephalitis, bedridden because of dystonic posturing and very frequent myoclonic involuntary movements, improved dramatically[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Generalized Clonic or Tonic-Clonic Seizures

    […] generalized high-amplitude, poly spike discharges." [2] The clonic phase EEG will show "high amplitude activity that is typically interrrupted by slow waves to create a spike-and-slow-wave[en.wikipedia.org] movements Blepharospasm Limb ataxia Pontocerebellar atrophy Parkinsonism EEG with polyspike wave complexes Lafora bodies Morning myoclonic jerks Scoliosis Delayed speech[mendelian.co] movements Plagiocephaly Athetosis Sarcoma Abnormal lung lobation Abnormality of the upper limb Duodenal atresia Acute leukemia Multiple renal cysts Abnormality of the skull[mendelian.co]

  • Epilepsia Partialis Continua

    […] and a focal paroxysmal abnormality (spikes and slow waves); (d) occurrence at any age in childhood and adulthood; (e) frequently demonstrable aetiology (tumor, vascular);[medlink.com] We describe a young patient affected by schizencephaly and continuous involuntary movements of the contralateral hand.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We describe a young Chinese patient with continuous involuntary movements of the contralateral hand affected by schizencephaly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
