Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) is a new therapeutic option for refractory epilepsy. We report a patient with Lennox-Gastaut-Syndrome (LGS) and a severe impairment of heart rate variability (HRV), we could demonstrate in our patient that HRV was improved by VNS.

Lennox-Gastaut syndrome is a severe form of epilepsy. Seizures usually begin before 4 years of age. 北美的Esai公司宣佈,美國食品藥物管理局(FDA)核准rufinamide (Banzel)作為4歲以上小孩及成人與痙攣相關之雷葛氏症候群(Lennox-Gastaut syndrome,LGS)的輔助治療。
