Treatments for Epilepsy in Children - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Epilepsy is a condition in the brain where a person has at least two seizures overtime. There is no cure for most types of epilepsy, but there are treatments that can control the seizures. These treatments include medication, diet, and surgical procedures. Medications called antiepileptic drugs are the most common treatment for epilepsy. They are also known as anticonvulsants or anti-seizure drugs. Most seizures can be controlled with one of these drugs. But a combination of drugs may be necessary. A special diet called a ketogenic diet may also help reduce some types of seizures that are not controlled by medicines. This diet is high in fats and low in carbohydrates. Talk to your healthcare provider if you are thinking about putting your child on a special diet to help with seizures. This type of diet needs to be supervised by an expert. If medications aren't working, your healthcare provider may advise a surgical procedure for some types of epilepsy to help stop seizures. During most procedures, the part of the brain causing the seizures will be removed. Vagus nerve stimulation uses a device to help reduce the number of seizures. A surgical procedure is done to implant the device. In this procedure, a stimulator device will be placed beneath the skin in the chest. A wire from the device will be attached to the vagus nerve in the neck. Once it's in place, the device will limit short bursts of electrical energy that travel through the wire to the vagus nerve. Then, the energy will travel up the nerve to the brain to help reduce seizure activity. If you have any questions about treatments for epilepsy, talk to your healthcare provider.

"Thank you for the wonderful illustrations. The case resulted in a defense verdict last Friday. I know [our medical expert witness] presented some challenges for you and I appreciate how you were able to work with him."

"A few words about The Doe Report: recently in a brachial plexus injury case, we used an image from The Doe Report to demonstrate the injury. We downloaded the PDF file image, and were amazed at the quality. The hard copies that you sent were even more clear. As well, we could not have been happier when you customized the image and reversed the injury from the left shoulder to the right shoulder, which is where our client's injury was.

The speed and cost-effectiveness of the product made it the perfect tool for our purposes. We will use The Doe Report again in future cases."

Andrew Needle

"Your firm is great to work with and, most importantly for me, you get the job done on time and with the utmost professionalism. You should be proud of all those you employ, from KJ to Ben B. I've been especially pleased over the years with the work of Brian and Alice, both of whom seem to tolerate my idiosycratic compulsion to edit, but I've not found a bad apple in the bunch (and, as you know, I've used your firm a bunch!). I look forward to our continued professional relationship."
