11 Possible Causes for Spindle Coma Pattern

  • Coma

    BACKGROUND: Difficulties are associated with the diagnosis and management of patients with coma because of intracranial hypotension. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 70-year-old man with coma (Glasgow Coma Scale score of 6) with fixed dilated pupils because of severe intracranial hypotension is described. After unsuccessful[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Stroke

    coma patterns, etc.).[scielo.br] Other abnormal activity (alpha, theta and spindles coma patterns) - The EEG patterns in coma states are not specific with regard to the etiology or prognosis 35.[scielo.br] So, when this pattern is present in a comatose patient, they may be a sign of better prognosis than similar coma without spindles (alpha or theta), because their presence[scielo.br]

  • Stupor

    Hypoxia and drug intoxications can produce a number of abnormal EEG patterns such as burst suppression, alpha coma, and spindle coma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Minimally Conscious State

  • Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis

    At times, specific electroencephalographic pictures like spindle coma pattern and alternating pattern have been described.[doi.org]

  • Locked-in Syndrome

    These include burst suppression pattern, alpha coma pattern, spindle coma pattern, triphasic waves and periodic lateralized epileptiform discharges.[ecronicon.com] EEG pattern which resembles sleep spindle—spindle-coma (SC, activity in 9-14Hz range) was postulated to be an indicator of benign form of coma and, if accompanied by EEG reactivity[biomedical-engineering-online.biomedcentral.com] In others, low voltage delta coma may be seen. Spindle coma may be seen with traumatic brain injury.[ecronicon.com]
