Why physicians prescribe prophylactic seizure medications after intracerebral hemorrhage: an adaptive conjoint analysis.
Seizures are a morbid complication of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) and increase the risk for herniation, status epilepticus, and worse patient outcomes. Prophylactic levetiracetam is administered to approximately 40% of patients with ICH. It is unclear which patients are consciously selected for treatment by physicians. In this study, the investigators sought to determine how patients are selected for treatment with prophylactic levetiracetam after ICH.
