The first of these round tables is devoted to the condition of Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome. Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome is an epilepsy syndrome that is characterized by a number of different seizure types, a low IQ or cognitive abnormality, and a specific EEG pattern. Lennox-Gastaut is difficult to treat yet recently there have been new developments with newly available drugs for this condition. You will see over the course of our newsletters that there is a special portal for Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome where we will have all information from clinical characteristics, seizure types, EEG patterns, the numbers of how often this occurs, and treatment options all accessible by one click.
Three experts have contributed specifically to this round table and we want to thank Dr. Raj Sheth, Dr. Randa Jarrar, and Dr. Blanca Vazquez for their contributions to this work. We will find both written material, a PowerPoint presentation from each of these speakers, and a special video and audio hallway conversations which addresses questions that I pose to this group with regards to Lennox-Gastaut. We hope that you find this special round table useful and informative to help your family members or your patients who are affected by Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome. Epilepsy.com also wishes to acknowledge Lundbeck for their kind, unrestricted, educational grant that made this round table possible. The authors of the round table content surrounding Lennox-Gastaut were unaware of Lundbeck’s sponsorship nor did Lundbeck have any contribution to the editorial material that is presented within this portal.
We want to hear your feedback with regards to this round table and we hope that the other two round tables that will be introduced over the next two months are also of benefit.
