Neuromodulation in Epilepsy Case Discussions

1:30 PM - 3:00 PM Saturday, January 19

Neuromodulation is changing the landscape of epilepsy surgery, as more patients are now candidates for surgical intervention that can reduce seizures and improve quality of life. We will review updates in the field of neurostimulation in recent years, and lead case-based discussions focusing on the role of neurostimulation in drug resistant epilepsy.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss the most recent long-term data regarding seizure outcomes after neurostimulation treatment.
  • Identify patient selection strategies for RNS vs. resection or laser ablation after intracranial monitoring, and the use of RNS in pediatric patients.
  • Describe updates in DBS and VNS in epilepsy.
