OBJECTIVE To characterize intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) as a seizure etiology in infants born at term and preterm. For term infants, to compare seizure severity and treatment response for multi-site vs single-site ICH and hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) with vs. without ICH. STUDY DESIGN We studied 112 newborn infants with seizures attributed to ICH, and 201 infants born at term with seizures attributed to HIE, using a cohort of consecutive infants with clinically diagnosed and/or electrog...

Abstract null null Purpose null Parents of neonates with seizures are at risk of mental health symptoms due to the impact of illness on family life, prognostic uncertainty, and the emotional toll of hospitalization. A family-centered approach is the preferred model to mitigate these challenges. We aimed to identify strategies to promote family-centered care through an analysis of parent-offered advice to clinicians caring for neonates with seizures. null null null Basic procedures null This pros...

Objective null To compare key seizure and outcome characteristics between neonates with and without cardiopulmonary disease (CPD). null null null Study design null The Neonatal Seizure Registry (NSR-1) is a multicenter, prospectively acquired cohort of neonates with clinical or EEG-confirmed seizures. CPD was defined as congenital heart disease, congenital diaphragmatic hernia, and exposure to extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. We assessed continuous electroencephalographic monitoring (cEEG) s...

Abstract null null Background null Prophylactic antiseizure medications (ASMs) for pediatric traumatic brain injury (TBI) are understudied. We evaluated clinical and radiographic features that inform prescription of ASMs for pediatric TBI. We hypothesized that despite a lack of evidence, levetiracetam is the preferred prophylactic ASM but that prophylaxis is inconsistently prescribed. null null null Methods null This retrospective study assessed children admitted with TBI from January 1, 2017, t...

Abstract null null Objective null Seizures are a common neonatal neurologic emergency. Many centers have developed pathways to optimize management. We evaluated neonatal seizure management pathways at level IV neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) in the United States to highlight areas of consensus and describe aspects of variability. null null null Methods null We conducted a descriptive analysis of 11 neonatal seizure management pathways from level IV NICUs that specialize in neonatal neurocr...

Background null Gene-targeted therapies are becoming a reality for infants and children with diseases of the nervous system. Rapid scientific advances have led to disease-modifying or even curative treatments. However, delays and gaps in diagnosis, inequitable delivery, and the need for long-term surveillance pose unresolved challenges. null Objective and methods null The goal of the Child Neurology Society Research Committee was to evaluate and provide guidance on the obstacles, opportunities, ...

OBJECTIVE This study was undertaken to evaluate benzodiazepine (BZD) administration patterns before transitioning to non-BZD antiseizure medication (ASM) in pediatric patients with refractory convulsive status epilepticus (rSE). METHODS This retrospective multicenter study in the United States and Canada used prospectively collected observational data from children admitted with rSE between 2011 and 2020. Outcome variables were the number of BZDs given before the first non-BZD ASM, and the numbe...

Neonatal seizures are a common neurologic emergency for which therapies have not significantly changed in decades. Improvements in diagnosis and pathophysiologic understanding of the distinct features of acute symptomatic seizures and neonatal-onset epilepsies present exceptional opportunities for development of precision therapies with potential to improve outcomes. Herein, we discuss the pathophysiology of neonatal seizures and review the evidence for currently available treatment. We present ...

Neonatal encephalopathy (NE) is the most common etiology of acute neonatal seizures - about half of neonates treated with therapeutic hypothermia for NE have EEG-confirmed seizures. These seizures are best identified with continuous EEG monitoring, as clinical diagnosis leads to under-diagnosis of subclinical seizures and over-treatment of events that are not seizures. High seizure burden, especially status epilepticus, is thought to augment brain injury. Treatment, therefore, is aimed at minimi...

OBJECTIVE There are three recommended first-line treatments for infantile spasms, adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), oral corticosteroids, and vigabatrin, though non-standard treatments such as topiramate are sometimes selected. Is it uncertain how treatment selection influences health services outcomes. METHODS We conducted a retrospective cohort study of Medicaid beneficiaries newly diagnosed with infantile spasms from 2009-2010. We included infants with a new diagnosis of infantile spasms be...
