SIPS II is an international multi-center PERF funded study that proposed to enroll 300 neonatal and pediatric stroke cases. Imaging, EEGs, medical chart abstraction and epilepsy longitudinal outcome data will be collected. SIPS II aims to determine extend to which acute seizures after pediatric stroke are associated with stroke-related death, neurologic recovery and 5-year epilepsy risk, identify neuroimaging biomarkers associated with acute seizures and epilepsy and identify EEG biomarkers associated with severe neurological outcomes and epilepsy.
