Event Time: Monday April 23, 2018 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): Epilepsy/Clinical Neurophysiology (EEG)
Director(s): Stephan Schuele MD, FAAN
Description: Several novel techniques have revolutionized epilepsy surgery in the last five years. Minimal invasive methods of identifying the seizure focus have been paralleled by minimal invasive techniques to ablate or desynchronize the area from which seizures originate. These technologies have changed the landscape of epilepsy surgery offering help to patients who would otherwise not be amenable to surgery. The course will discuss a variety of novel techniques used in epilepsy surgery and discuss criteria in the clinical selection process.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to understand the principles underlying Stereo EEG and how to choose the appropriate method for an individual patient; discuss several approaches to minimally invasive epilepsy surgery; and understand the principles of different stimulation techniques in the treatment of epilepsy and choose the appropriate intervention for individual patients.
