19th International Cleveland Clinic Epilepsy Symposia
October 1-6, 2010
The 19th International Cleveland Clinic Epilepsy Symposia offers two CME-certified symposia:
In addition, two one-day sessions will be offered: Hands-on Surgical Workshop for Neurosurgeons and the Ethics of Invasive Brain Testing: Limits and Responsibilities, both on Sunday, October 3.
The 19th International Cleveland Clinic Epilepsy Symposia will focus on the invasive evaluation of focal epilepsies and a comprehensive update on epilepsy diagnosis and management options. All presentations/workshops will be given by a national and international faculty of renown.
The indications for various invasive methods (subdural grids versus depth electrodes versus intraoperative electrocorticography) will be discussed in light of acquired experiences and data/outcome analyses from leading international epilepsy centers.
Major symposia themes include
- The major concepts that define epileptogenicity and epileptogenesis;
- The significance of interictal and ictal epileptic patterns;
- The role of various EEG, imaging and other non-invasive modalities;
- Pertinent nursing, socio-economic and psychological/psychiatric issues in patients undergoing invasive evaluation.
