C237 - Case Studies: Diagnosis and Management of Unusual Cases in Neuromuscular Disease

Event Time: Thursday May 9, 2019 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm
Topic(s): Neuromuscular and Clinical Neurophysiology (EMG)
Director(s): Robert Pascuzzi MD, FAAN
Description: In the broad field of neuromuscular medicine, daily clinician challenges center on getting a specific and correct diagnosis for patients. In other patients, the diagnosis may be clear but the management may prove vexing. Faculty will select 12-15 cases that represent a broad variety of diagnostic and management challenges. Each patient case will be presented by the physician and time will be allowed for the audience to consider the diagnosis, followed by a summary of the key diagnostic studies and major teaching points. Comments and discussion between faculty and audience will provide perspective and consensus. In patients where the challenge is in best management, the discussion will center accordingly. The evening will be fast-paced with a relaxed environment to allow for optimal interchange between the presenters, the faculty panelists, and the audience. Key points for diagnosis and for treatment with an emphasis on new developments will be emphasized and provided.
Completion Message: Participants will become familiar with a broad range of uncommon or unusual neuromuscular care presentations, and become familiar with a variety of approaches to management of the difficult patient. Key summary points from from the presenters will be supplemented by insights, pearls, and tips from the faculty panel as well as novel opinions from the members of the audience. Overall this will be a high-yeild, interesting, and lively clinically oriented three hours and participants can expect the session to enhance and enrich their diagnostic skills and management armamentarium.
