Generalized convulsive status epilepticus: causes, therapy, and outcome in 346 patients.
Scholtes FB, Renier WO, Meinardi H
We report data from 346 admissions for generalized tonic-clonic convulsive status epilepticus (GC-SE); 68% had had epilepsy previously. Outcome was determined by underlying cause, SE duration of>4 h, the presence of more than one medical complication, and the quality of therapy and management. Clonazepam (CZP), diazepam (DZP), and phenytoin (PHT) were most frequently used for treatment.
