Post traumatic seizures following traumatic brain injury in children twice as likely as adults

In the first study to utilize continuous EEG monitoring (cEEG) to define the incidence of early post traumatic seizures (EPTS) in children compared to published rates in adults, investigators at the University of Colorado followed pediatric patients with moderate to severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) admitted to Denver Children’s Hospital over a nine month period. Their report presented at the 64th American Epilepsy Society Annual Meeting suggests that the incidence of early post traumatic seizures in children with moderate to severe TBI is more than twice the rate in adults.
