Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

We aim to assess the effects of AEDs for the primary and secondary prevention of seizures related to ICVT.

  • For the question of primary prevention, we aim to examine whether AEDs reduce the likelihood of seizures in patients who have had an ICVT but have not had a seizure.

  • For the question of secondary prevention, we aim to examine whether AEDs reduce the likelihood of further seizures in patients who have had an ICVT and at least one seizure.
