The Effect Of Anti-Epileptic Drugs On Visual Evoked Potential In Patients With Generalized Tonic-Clonic Seizures: A Prospective Case-Controlled Study

Posted on Updated on

Objective: The primary reason for the present investigation was to decide if hostile to epileptic medications initiate any anomalous changes in the visual evoked potential (VEP) designs. Techniques and material: This imminent case controlled examination was done at the Neurology Department of King Abdulaziz University Hospital, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia (between January 2013 and December 2014). The examination subjects were separated into cases and controls; with the case gather subjects being those epilepsy patients getting antiepileptic drugs. Utilizing the Visual Evoked Potentials (VEPs), control and case subjects were contrasted with deference with the estimations of: Latency N75, Latency P100 and Amplitude P100. Results: A factually huge distinction was seen between the controls and the subjects accepting antiepileptic twofold and triple medication treatment; regarding the estimation of Latency P100 (P-esteem 0.042 and 0.044 separately). The examination of fluctuations (ANOVA) uncovered a measurably critical contrast (P-esteem 0.007 and 0.038) concerning the mean scores of Latency N75 and the mean scores of Amplitude P100; in connection to age; between the controls and the case bunch patients accepting hostile to epileptic monotherapy. A measurably critical contrast (p=0.01) was noted as for Latency N75 identified with age, between the controls and patients accepting antiepileptic twofold treatment.
