INES 2023 Vienna

Medical University Vienna in Vienna, Austria

ILAE Curriculum Learning Objectives addressed by this course

Surgical management of drug-resistant focal epilepsy represents a successful treatment option in carefully selected patients. It is thus of utmost importance to identify patients amenable to epilepsy surgery early enough during the disease course and submit to a pre-surgical evaluation. The 13th ILAE School for Neuropathology and Epilepsy Surgery (the 1st meeting in Vienna) is designed to enable participants to better recognize and classify various lesional substrates of drug-resistant epilepsy. Advanced hands-on surgical training will be offered in small groups led by distinguished tutors who will give hands-on demonstrations on macro- and microscopical brain specimen. Participants will also have the opportunity to perform surgical approaches on cadavers and diagnose histopathological cases under the microscope. 

Course Directors: Ingmar Blümcke, Karl Rössler and Christian Dorfer
