CONy 2023 | Epilepsy surgery, non-convulsive seizures & long-term EEG

Andriy Dubenko, MD, PhD, Ukrainian League against Epilepsy, Kyiv, Ukraine, discusses whether patients with lesional epilepsy should be referred for surgery when epilepsy is first diagnosed, provided the lesions can be safely removed, rather than waiting for drug resistance. Excision of an epileptogenic lesion may cure and eliminate seizures and can be a helpful treatment strategy. However, identifying patients that would benefit from surgery remains the biggest challenge. Prof. Dubenko also discusses the usefulness of diagnosing non-convulsive seizures in intensive care units and long-term electroencephalograms. This interview took place at the 17th World Congress on Controversies in Neurology (CONy) in Dubrovnik, Croatia.
