結論(著者による)

Statistically significantly increased risks were observed for peripheral nerve diseases (SHR 1.66; CI 1.22-2.22), for migraine (SHR 1.80; CI 1.23-2.54), for vertigo (SHR 1.60; CI 1.22-2.05), and for epilepsy (SHR 1.45; CI, 1.11-1.85) among survivors of electric shocks. Only small numbers of cases of other neurological diseases were found, making the risk estimates unstable.
The authors conclude that the findings suggest an association between a single electric shock and increased risks for peripheral nerve diseases, migraine, vertigo, and epilepsy, but confirmation of these observations is needed.
