Can we predict focal to bilateral tonic-clonic seizure risk during video- electroencephalography?

Takeaway

  • Likelihood of focal to bilateral tonic-clonic seizures during video-electroencephalography monitoring depends on seizure history and levels of antiepileptic drug tapering.

Why this matters

    These findings highlight the need for suitable antiepileptic drug tapering regimens in video-electroencephalography monitoring units. The study provides real-world estimates of drug load reductions that are associated with an elevated risk of focal to bilateral tonic-clonic seizures during monitoring.
