From increased risks to effective screening approaches, special pediatric considerations and the role of medications, our expert shares insights on the intersection of seizures and suicidality.
Median seizure reduction was substantially greater after nine years of therapy than after three years, reveals a long-term prospective study of the implantable RNS neuromodulation system.
The shared grant to Cleveland Clinic and Case Western Reserve University will support application of computer post-processing to MR fingerprinting images to pinpoint seizure origins in challenging cases.
Ongoing research is pursuing glucocorticoid receptors as a potential therapeutic target to overcome the role of blood-brain barrier dysfunction in pharmacoresistant epilepsy.

As use of continuous EEG monitoring during hospitalization grows, more patients with no epilepsy history are being discharged on antiepileptic drugs. Here’s why and how we’re monitoring them in a new clinic.
New patient series show that MR fingerprinting contributes to epileptic lesion characterization beyond conventional MRI and that computer-assisted MRI post-processing enhances detection of subtle abnormalities in challenging cingulate and orbitofrontal epilepsies.
The new deep brain stimulation system for epilepsy seems best suited to patients whose seizures are hard to localize or restrict to just a couple brain regions. We share insights as one of the initial U.S. treating sites.
By extending traditional EEG-fMRI methods to 7T MRI, we’re markedly increasing detection sensitivity and temporal resolution of spikes to enable successful resection of the epileptogenic zone.
When a 35-year-old presented with pharmacoresistant epilepsy, SEEG and cortico-cortical evoked potentials proved crucial in localizing a single focus and paving the way for seizure control through laser ablation.
Our powerhouse epilepsy CME update takes place Sept. 22-24 in Cleveland. Faculty access, MOC and special attention to new clinical tools, epilepsy surgery and neglected epilepsy topics make it essential for those managing patients with seizures.
