The purpose of the work reported here is to quantify, from existing published and unpublished research, the risk of seizure recurrence following either an initial fit or a clinical event which increases seizure risk, and by type. The findings reported are those of a systematic review of the existing literature relating to the probability of further seizures occurring at various time intervals after an initial seizure or seizure-provoking incident, such as head injury, neurosurgery, tumour or stroke.
