LYON 2010: THE FIRST SEEG
This initiative echoes to the exponentially growing interest in a large number of countries, where invasive monitoring has traditionally used sub-dural grids, for the comprehensive pre-surgical evaluation approach developed more than 50 years ago by Jean Talairach and Jean Bancaud.
The fours days training course is designed to favor the acquisition of practical skills through case-based discussion. Eight groups of four to five students will work on real patient’s data under the permanent supervision of SEEG experts from the experienced centers of Grenoble, Lyon, Marseille, Milano, Nancy, Paris Sainte-Anne and Rennes.
You will be given access to all patients’ data information, including computerized on line video-EEG (using dedicated software, graciously offered by MICROMED), MRI and PET. Based on non-invasive data, you will have to decide which patients should benefit from SEEG, and to define the number and location of electrodes to be implanted in each selected patient. You will then have to review and summarize SEEG data, and to recommend a surgical decision. Training workshops will be followed by general discussions during which all participants will share and discuss their own suggestions with all members of the Faculty
