Epilepsy In Childhood And Adolescence 3rd Edition PDF
1.93 MB PDF
Within the past few years there has been a period of rapid expansion in our understanding of epilepsy. The discovery of an increasing number of gene mutations responsible for various types of epilepsy offers intriguing insights into not only the molecular, but also the genetic basis of epilepsy. The development of new anti-epileptic drugs and refinements to epilepsy surgery are widening the therapeutic options for epilepsy. In addition, the classification of the epilepsies continues to evolve based on an increased understanding of the molecular genetics of the condition, and this includes the recognition of possible novel epilepsy syndromes. The new edition of this book considers all of these exciting developments as well as addressing the essential features of the diagnosis, investigation, management and impact of epilepsy in childhood and adolescence.
Advances in our understanding of epilepsy would only be of limited benefit without concurrent improvements in the provision of epilepsy services. Fortunately, in the United Kingdom, there are several initiatives that are likely to enhance epilepsy services. The deficiencies in the provision of epilepsy care revealed by the National Sentinel Clinical Audit of Epilepsy-Related Death have provided a clear impetus for change. In addition, the National Service Framework for Children and guidance from the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN) and National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) on both the general and specific drug management of epilepsy should lead to further improvements in epilepsy services. Nevertheless, considerable work is still required to ensure that these improvements become a reality.
