Epilepsy that is not easily managed or controlled.
A structure in the membrane of nerve and muscle cells through which ions enter and exit the cell. In an epileptic seizure, the ion channels of the neurons of the brain are affected, so that there is a much greater outflow of ions than normal.
Or, potassium voltage-gated channel (KCN), shaker-related subfamily, member 1 gene. It provides instructions for making one part (the alpha subunit) of a potassium channel called Kv1.1.
Or, potassium voltage-gated channel (KCN), subfamily H, member 2 gene. It provides instructions for making potassium channels in heart muscle, which play a major role in maintaining regular heart rhythm.
Or, potassium voltage-gated channel (KCN), KQT-like subfamily, member 1 gene. It provides instructions for making potassium channels in heart muscle which play a major role in maintaining regular heart rhythm.
LQTS, Long QT Syndrome
A disorder of the heart’s electrical activity.
Medical Data Registry
Systematic collection of clearly defined health and demographic data for people with a certain health condition.
Family doctor [US/Canada].
MORTality in Epilepsy Monitoring Unit Study [France].
Time interval on an electrocardiogram (ECG/EKG) that represents the beginning of the heart ventricles’ contraction until the end of relaxation.
Rapid Eye Movement.
The phase of the cardiac cycle during which the electrical excitation of the heart muscle returns to the resting condition.
Or, sodium channel (SCN), voltage-gated, type V, alpha subunit gene. It provides instructions for making sodium channels, which are abundant in heart muscle and play a major role in maintaining normal heart rhythm.
Also called 5-HT or 5-hydroxytryptamine, a neurotransmitter (substance used to transmit nerve impulses across synapses) and powerful vasoconstrictor.
