Epileptic syndromes (ES) in infancy, childhood and adolescence can be defined according to typical clinical epilepsy data, EEG features, and specific seizure types. Video-EEG constitutes the best tool for accurate early diagnosis of ES. Clinical practice of paediatric video-EEG requires specific skills, such as a working knowledge of paediatric EEG and electro-clinical semiology.
This course provides a transversal approach to the teaching of Paediatric Epileptology, by dealing equally with clinical and neurophysiological aspects, as well as subsequent clinical management. The objectives are both to review the classic descriptions of epileptic syndromes in infancy, childhood and adolescence, and to promote awareness of new advances in this field, while enabling attendees to make optimal use of video-EEG methodology.
After completing this educational activity, participants will achieve the following goals:
Pediatric Neurologists, Epilepsy Fellows, Clinical Neurophysiologists, Neurologists, Residents in Pediatric Neurology and in Clinical Neurophysiology.
