EEG can be helpful, but "there's no reliable test to differentiate the two.
All these patients were surgical candidates because of medically intractable seizures and evaluated according to a standard protocol that included interictal
and ictal video EEG recordings, cranial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and neuropsychological and psychiatric investigations.
If the SWC of the patient was difficult to distinguish, a 10-min segment from interictal
pattern was chosen and calculated.
16] Evolution of hypsarrhythmia to other interictal
patterns has been reported, and was noted in our study.
Logsdail and Toone characterized symptomatic criteria for PIP (Logsdail 1988), subsequently recognizing PIP from alternate psychoses of epilepsy, to be specific ictal and interictal
Suppression of interictal
spikes and seizures by stimulation of the vagus nerve.
Third, no clinical myoclonus was noted during the EEG recording; the interictal
EEG recorded generalized spike and slow-wave discharges, the pattern was not suggestive of myoclonic seizures.
On EEG, he had frequent interictal
discharges, indicating seizure activity predominately in the left temporal region, suggestive of a seizure focus originating from the temporal lobe.
Research related to the epilepsy disease is basically used for differentiating between letal (seizure period) and Interictal
(period between seizures) EEG signals.
Diagnosis of TLE was based on clinical history, seizure semiology and interictal
electroencephalo-graphic (EEG) monitoring.
The inclusion criterion were as follows: (i) ictal or interictal
EEG evidence and consistent seizure semiology of clear onset in the frontal lobe (ii) MRI evidence of epileptogenic lesions of the frontal lobe (iii) normal intellectual function as measured by Standard Progressive Matrices.
Evaluation for surgery should involve interictal
electroencephalogram (iEEG), interictal
SPECT, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) analysis, and age-appropriate neuropsychological/developmental assessment.
