Congress Website

Cerebrovascular disease is one of the most common causes of epilepsy and a frequently encountered comorbidity in epilepsy practice. Recent studies have demonstrated that poststroke epilepsy (PSE) is common and associated with an increased risk of death. Seizures can also be the first manifestation of cerebrovascular disease. The last years have seen a surge in research on PSE, with advances in prediction, prevention, epidemiology, and treatment. Nonetheless, many issues remain unsolved. The congress will gather experts in the field for scientific discussions and state-of-the art updates on management of seizures in the context of cerebrovascular disease.
