abstract

  • We postulate that the excess in hospitalizations with epilepsy as first discharge diagnosis in 2006-2010 in the United States was related to the changes in coding in 2006. Any use of U.S. hospital discharge data with epilepsy-related diagnosis after that date will require further validation.
