|Convulsive Status EPILEPTICUS||Procedure: Moderate hypothermia||Phase 3|
Status EPILEPTICUS (SE) is a major medical emergency. The incidence per 100,000 population has been estimated at 9.9 episodes in Europe and 41 episodes in the US. The overall morbidity and mortality associated with convulsive SE (CSE) is 60% at three months. The alteration of functional prognosis of these patients is more conventionally attributed to the cause than to CSE itself. Longer seizure duration, progression to refractory status EPILEPTICUS and presence of cerebral insult are strong factors independently associated with a poor functional outcome. These three factors offer may be amenable to improvement and hope for preventive strategies. Current guidelines recommend the use of anticonvulsant treatment whose goal is prompt cessation of clinical and electrical seizures. None of these treatments has demonstrated NEUROPROTECTICE property. Therapeutic moderate hypothermia (between 32 and 34 ° C) showed interest in neuroprotection of post anoxic coma patients after a cardiovascular arrest on ventricular fibrillation by reducing morbidity and mortality in about 20% without major side effects. This technique has been used successfully in various pathologies such as stroke or traumatic brain injury. Pathophysiological mechanisms involved in epileptogenesis and neurotoxicity induced by persistence of seizures can be blocked by therapeutic hypothermia. Recent work on experimental models of SE demonstrated neuroprotective and anticonvulsant interest of therapeutic hypothermia. Therapeutic hypothermia has also been successfully used in some cases of particularly refractory CSE. Its early use in patients with SE would have a double interest: neuroprotective and anticonvulsant. There is currently no published studies or ongoing to determine the interest of its early use in patients with CSE.
Thus, the current study AIMAS at evaluating the effectiveness of the implementation of a procedure of moderate hypothermia therapy, between 32 ° and 34 ° C for 24 hours, to reduce morbidity and mortality at 3 months (+ / - 1 week) in mechanically ventilated ICU patients with convulsive status EPILEPTICUS.
