Inthe ILAE proposed a new classification.
eplepsia The classification of epilepsies shows radical changes, both in terminology and taxonomic criteria, when compared to the classification. Several international authorities have already disapproved the new proposals of the ILAE. The World’s preeminent association of health care professionals and scientists working toward a world where no person’s life is limited by epilepsy.
Definition & Classification // International League Against Epilepsy
We also analyzed the new version according to the principles of a good classification. For instance, benign rolandic epilepsy should be included both under ‘electroclinical syndromes’ and ‘epilepsies of unknown cause’.
Epileptic Disorders Epilepsy surgery for polymicrogyria: EpiCARE connects 28 specialist centres in 13 European countries with world experts in the field of epilepsy with the aim of diagnosing and treating rare epilepsies. Abstract submission is now open and the deadline for abstract submissions is 18 January High-gamma HG; Hz activity in macroscopic clinical records is considered a marker for critical brain regions involved in seizure initiation; it is correlated with pathological multiunit firing during neocortical seizures in the seizure core, an area identified by correlated multiunit….
The new version lacks many of the desirable principles of a good classification system.
Definition & Classification
The main criterion selected to classify the epilepsies a mixture of syndromic specificity and etiology divides the epilepsies in four groups which are not mutually exclusive. A putative basis for the partial responsiveness to vigabatrin analogs?
The International League Against Epilepsy disseminates research findings and breakthroughs in the cure for epilepsy and related seizure disorders through its official publications in original peer-reviewed articles that communicate the latest in epilepsy research. Our Publications The International League Against Epilepsy disseminates research findings and breakthroughs in the cure for epilepsy and related seizure disorders through its official publications in original peer-reviewed articles that communicate the latest in epilepsy research.
The division of clinical entities in ‘electroclinical syndromes’, ‘constellations’, and ‘ill-defined syndromes’ could have avoided such problem, although it appears to be clinically less relevant than classification criteria localization and etiology.
An international debate on the subject might help to develop a new classification supported world-wide.
Welcome to the International League Against Epilepsy
The attempts to replace the ILAE classification of epilepsies have been far from successful. We evaluated the potential contribution of the classification of epilepsies compared to the previous one. The results tripled the 20100 of known genetic associations for epilepsy and importantly implicated 11 new genes. The ILAE has proposed an example of ‘organization’ of the epilepsies, instead of a true classification, and epioepsia encouraged the creation of different classifications for specific purposes.
Should these ones were not linked to a previously established main classification they would represent a risk. Please send me information about ILAE activities and other information of interest to the epilepsy community.
