Symptomatic postictal cardiac asystole in a young patient with partial seizures

Published inEuropace, vol. 3, no. 3, p. 247-252
Publication date2001-07
Abstract

This report describes a patient with complex partial seizures arising from the right temporal lobe who developed symptomatic sinus arrest following the end of his seizure activity. A ventricular pacemaker was implanted and was documented to function appropriately, preventing development of bradycardia associated symptoms during subsequent seizures. Possibly relevant cerebral structures are briefly discussed.
