Non-convulsive seizures secondary to brain injury: an emerging clinical concern
and potential implication for clinical trial design
Anthony J. Williams, Jed A. Hartings, and Frank C. Tortella
Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, Department of Applied Neurobiology, Silver
Spring, MD
"Acute brain injury involves two phases of pathology: the primary mechanical or
cerebrovascular insult and a variety of secondary pathologies that cause maturation of the
injury and critically determine patient outcome. One type of secondary insult which has
received increased attention in recent years is the occurrence of “non-clinical” or nonconvulsive
brain seizures. It is estimated that 10-27% of patients with acute brain injury
experience early seizures that are manifested in clinical motor convulsions [1], which are
easily recognized by medical personnel and in most cases can be treated with anticonvulsant
pharmacotherapy. However, a substantial percentage of patients also
experience non-convulsive seizures (NCS) without overt clinical manifestations. This
type of seizure has been underappreciated in the past, because it can only be diagnosed
with electroencephalographic (EEG) recordings, which is not a standard monitoring
modality in critically brain-injured patients. Recent studies nonetheless have shown that
NCS occurs in 6-37% of patients depending upon the type of brain lesion (ischemic,
traumatic, hemorrhagic, etc) (see Table 1). In some instances of non-convulsive status
epilepticus (NCSE), when NCS continues for >30 min., this type of seizure represents an
acute medical emergency.
Despite advances made by recent studies, the incidence of brain-injury related NCS
may be underestimated...."

What is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder?
"Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a chronic medical disorder that follows exposure to an overwhelming traumatic event. The main features are intrusive thoughts including flashbacks, avoidance of things that recall the trauma, and hyperarousal (sleeplessness, restlessness, irritability)."
