Reuters Health - 22/04/2022  - In patients with status epilepticus that is "less damaging" to the brain, a three-factor scoring system may help predict post-discharge outcomes, researchers suggest. As reported in JAMA Neurology, Dr. Christoph Beier of Odense University Hospital in Denmark and colleagues analyzed data on adult patients with status epilepticus at centers in four European countries from 2008 to 2017, and tested a new system, called the ACD score, for predicting two-year (long-term) mortality after hospital discharge. The ACD score represents age at onset, level of consciousness at admission, and duration of status epilepticus. The predefined end point was two-year survival for all patients and for a subgroup of patients with status epilepticus causes that were not damaging or were less damaging to the brain - i.e., not caused by ischemic stroke, cerebral hemorrhage, cerebral infection, etc. A total of 261 patients (mean age, 67; 51%, wome...
