Jasper's Basic Mechanisms of the Epilepsies

Antonio V. Delgado-Escueta, Jeffrey Noebels
e altri

editore: Oxford University Press Inc

pagine: 1264

H.H. Jasper, A.A. Ward, A. Pope and H.H. Merritt, chair of the Public Health Service Advisory Committee on the Epilepsies, National Institutes of Health, published the first volume on Basic Mechanisms of the Epilepsies (BME) in 1969. Their ultimate goal was to search for a "better understanding of the epilepsies and seek more rational methods of their prevention and treatment." Since then, basic and clinical researchers in epilepsy have gathered together every decade and a half with these goals in mind - assessing where epilepsy research has been, what it has accomplished, and where it should go. In 1999, the third volume of BME was named in honor of H.H. Jasper. In line with the enormous expansion in the understanding of basic epilepsy mechanisms over the past four decades, this fourth edition of Jasper's BME is the most ambitious yet. In 90 chapters, the book considers the role of interactions between neurons, synapses, and glia in the initiation, spread and arrest of seizures. It examines mechanisms of excitability, synchronization, seizure susceptibility, and ultimately epileptogenesis. It provides a framework for expanding the epilepsy genome and understanding the complex heredity responsible for common epilepsies as it explores disease mechanisms of ion channelopathies and developmental epilepsy genes. It considers the mechanisms of conditions of epilepsy comorbidities. And, for the first time, this 4th edition describes the current efforts to translate the discoveries in epilepsy disease mechanisms into new therapeutic strategies. This book, considered the 'bible' of basic epilepsy research, is essential for the student, the clinician scientist and all research scientists who conduct laboratory-based experimental epilepsy research using cellular, brain slice and animal models, as well as for those interested in related disciplines of neuronal oscillations, network plasticity, and signaling in brain strucutres that include the cortex, hippocampus, and thalamus. In keeping with the 1969 goals, the book is now of practical importance to the clinical neurologist and epileptologist as the progress of research in molecular genetics and modern efforts to design antiepileptic drugs, cures and repairs in the epilepsies converge and impact clinical care.

A Practitioner's Guide to Prescribing Antiepileptics and Mood Stabilizers for Adults with Intellectual Disabilities

Jose de Leon

editore: Springer-Verlag New York Inc.

pagine: 538

Emotional, behavioral, and neuropsychiatric conditions are common in individuals with intellectual disabilities (IDs), most notably epilepsy, aggression, self-injurious behaviors, and bipolar and other mood disorders. Despite the prevalence of such problems, there is a scarcity in the literature of reliable information on medical treatments for those with IDs. A Practitioner's Guide to Prescribing Antiepileptics and Mood Stabilizers for Adults with Intellectual Disabilities provides a detailed framework for prescribing for this challenging population. Featuring the most up-to-date information on factors that inform prescribing, the Guide addresses basic issues and controversies (e.g., the rift between evidence-based and personalized medicine) in treating adults with cognitive deficits. Clients' specific needs are emphasized in developing appropriate and effective pharmacological intervention for improved outcomes and quality of life. Drugs discussed in the Guide include carbamazepine, clonazepam, diazepam, ethosuximide, felbamate, gabapentin, lacosamide, lamotrigine, levetiracetam, lithium, lorazepam, oxcarbazepine, phenobarbital, phenytoin, pregabalin, primidone, rufinamide, tiagabine, topiramate, valproate, and zonisamide. For each of these compounds, the guidelines cover: * Indications for use; relative and absolute contraindications.* Assessment during treatment; therapeutic drug monitoring; warning signs and symptoms for caretakers.* Dosage: administration; initial and maximum recommended dosage; modifications associated with drug-drug interactions, personal characteristics, and (where appropriate) genetic variations.* Adverse drug reactions: common, relatively uncommon, and potentially lethal, plus risk of metabolic syndrome.* Guidelines for discontinuation.* References, tables, and drug utilization reviews. A Practitioner's Guide to Prescribing Antiepileptics and Mood Stabilizers for Adults with Intellectual Disabilities is an indispensable decision-making reference for psychiatrists, neuropsychologists, psychopharmacologists, neurologists, internists, and clinical psychologists.

Childhood Epilepsy

Management from Diagnosis to Remission

Peter Camfield, Richard E. Appleton

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 166

Sixty percent of the epilepsies start in childhood, and most of the clinically significant and often life-changing aspects of the disease occur at this time. Childhood epilepsy is frequently a complex disorder, demanding integrated medical, educational and community services. Its treatment encompasses acute and disability medicine. The many types or syndromes of childhood epilepsy present both diagnostic and management challenges. Although many children with epilepsy will be referred to specialist units, the majority will initially present to paediatricians and paediatric neurologists. This book provides a practical, problem-oriented manual to help clinicians with diagnosis, evaluation and management. This book addresses epilepsy as an evolving disorder from presentation, through active disease and finally to either spontaneous remission or a chronic lifelong condition. Structured on the child's age at presentation, Childhood Epilepsy offers a practical overview for paediatricians, paediatric neurologists and primary care practitioners who treat children with epilepsy in their daily practice.

The Neuropsychiatry of Epilepsy

Bettina Schmitz, Michael R. Trimble

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 232

Research into the neuropsychiatry of epilepsy has become a central focus of interest in the last five years. Comorbidity of epilepsy with behavioral problems is now recognized widely, and the neuroscientific basis for such comorbidity is an active area of investigation. With an expanded international team of authors, this fully revised new edition builds on the strengths of its predecessor, examining in detail the subtleties of behavioral changes in patients with seizure disorders and offering both a diagnostic and a management perspective. New chapters cover genetic disorders, the effects of epilepsy on social behavior as viewed through theory of mind, a discussion of the precuneus, the importance and nature of peri-ictal psychiatric symptoms, depression and the interictal dysphoric disorder, and the relationship between antiepileptic drugs and suicide. This new edition is a must for anyone involved in diagnosing or managing epilepsy.

The Causes of Epilepsy

Common and Uncommon Causes in Adults and Children

Frederick Andermann, Renzo Guerrini
e altri

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 808

Causation is an aspect of epilepsy neglected in the scientific literature and in the conceptualization of epilepsy at a clinical and experimental level. It was to remedy this deficiency that this book was conceived. The book opens with a draft etiological classification that goes some way to filling the nosological void. The book is divided into four etiological categories: idiopathic, symptomatic, cryptogenic, and provoked epilepsies. Each chapter considers topics in a consistent fashion, dealing with the phenomenon of epilepsy in each etiology, including its epidemiology, clinical features and prognosis, and any specific aspects of treatment. The book is a comprehensive reference work, a catalogue of all important causes of epilepsy, and a clinical tool for all clinicians dealing with patients who have epilepsy. It is aimed at epileptologists and neurologists and provides a distillation of knowledge in a form that is helpful in the clinical setting.

Vivere con l'epilessia. Aspetti clinici, psicologici e culturali

Rita D'Amico, Mafalda Cipulli
e altri

editore: Franco Angeli

pagine: 240

Tra tutte le patologie neurologiche gravi, l'epilessia è tra le più comuni. E, nonostante i progressi scientifici avvenuti recentemente, essa risulta ancora misteriosa e causa di sgomento, difficile da comprendere e da curare con serenità. Questo libro nasce dall'esigenza di ampliare e rinnovare la conoscenza di questa malattia, ancora circondata da antiche credenze e stereotipi negativi. Ne ripercorre quindi la storia, illustrandone i percorsi terapeutici dall'antichità per arrivare fino alle più recenti acquisizioni nel campo medico epilettologico e all'interpretazione dell'attuale classificazione della Lega Internazione contro l'Epilessia. Evidenzia la sterilità di alcune scelte della medicina allopatica, da cui sono scaturiti i processi di stigmatizzazione degli epilettici, a lungo considerati pazzi e, come tali, rinchiusi nei manicomi. Ma, soprattutto, spiega come possa influire sul malato e sulla malattia l'ambiente familiare e culturale in cui vive. La sua esperienza di vita, le sue emozioni e la sua sofferenza derivano non tanto dalla malattia in senso stretto, quanto piuttosto da come essa viene vissuta a livello sociale. Un punto di riferimento fondamentale sia per chi vive con il malato sia per quanti - medici, operatori, psicologi - si trovano a dover combattere al suo fianco.
