C193 - Peripheral Neuropathy I: Anatomical Basis and Acquired Demyelinating Neuropathies

Event Time: Thursday April 27, 2017 7:00 am to 9:00 am
Topic(s): Neuromuscular and Clinical Neurophysiology (EMG)
Director(s): Michael Shy MD
Description: Peripheral neuropathies (PN) ultimately affect almost 10 percent of the population. New diagnostic and management options make rational therapies for PN increasingly possible. However, the high cost of certain diagnostic tests and therapies, along with the complexities involved in choosing which tests and treatments to initiate, complicate the management of patients with PN. The Peripheral Nerve Society (PNS) and AAN Neuromuscular Section will present three two-hour courses devoted to the diagnosis and management of these disorders. Faculty will provide an overview of the peripheral nervous system, including a pathological overview of PN, and review the diagnosis and management of acquired immune-based ceuropathies, including Guillain Barre syndrome and CIDP. This program complements C204: Peripheral Neuropathy II: Diabetic and Inherited Neuropathies and C217: Peripheral Neuropathy III: Genetic Testing and Next Generation Sequencing, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to understand the anatomical basis and pathological consequences of peripheral neuropathies, distinguish between acquired and inherited peripheral neuropathies, and use a rational, evidence-based approach to treat acquired immunologically based peripheral neuropathies.
