Keywords:Epilepsy, convulsions, trauma, EEG
Symptomatic post-traumatic epilepsy occurs in 11 to 20% of people with traumatic brain injury; its number and severity depend on the severity of the primary CMD, the location of the post-traumatic lesion, the premorbid background (recurrence of lesions and the presence of genetic predisposition) (Avakyan GN, pp. 2003). We examined 110 patients treated for symptomatic post-traumatic epilepsy in the neurology department of SamMI Clinic No. 1, and 48 patients with other types of epilepsy were selected as a control group. Their age ranged from 40 to 65 years. The duration of the disease ranged from 6 to 10 years. men accounted for 74% and women for 26%. Before treatment, the average seizure rate was 4.29 ± 1.09 (1 to 9) per month, of which focal seizures were 2.53 ± 1.1 (0 to 7), and secondary seizures were 1.76 ± 1.2 (0). from 6 to). The diagnosis of symptomatic epilepsy was made in accordance with the International Classification of Epilepsy (ILAE, 2001).
