Occurrence, Suggestions and the Executives of Seizures following Ischemic and Hemorrhagic strokeAuthor(s): Xi Lun
Review objective: I have presented a synopsis of the most recent research on the incidence and management of seizures following ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes in this review. In addition, it is identified unanswered questions regarding standard clinical care and guidelines to assist future studies aiming to improve seizure management in stroke patients.
Recent results: Studies show that there are more seizures after strokes, probably because more people are using continuous EEG monitoring and better ways to treat strokes. Seizures following a stroke are linked to prolonged hospitalization and increased mortality; As a result, seizure prevention and prompt treatment are crucial. Regardless of the cause, Anti Epileptic Drugs (AEDs) are the treatment of choice for recurrent seizures. However, there are currently no established guidelines for using AEDs to prevent strokes.
Summary: Seizures after stroke are getting more common. Risk factors for recurrent seizures and epilepsy following strokes, as well as the most effective treatment options, require additional research.
