This book was written with the belief that accurate and comprehensible medical information can empower people with epilepsy to combat their disease. Reading Epilepsy: 199 Answers will help you to better understand your doctor's language and ask better questions. If you fill in the medical history section, keep your calendar, and carry this book when you visit your doctor, it will help you receive optimal care. Although the principles of epilepsy management have not changed since the first edtion of this book was written, our sophistication regarding neuroimaging, antiepileptic drug (AED) and surgical treatment has dramatically improved. Both the text and resource sections have been rewritten to reflect the current state of the art of epilepsy treatment. For example, it includes discussions of new antiepileptic drugs that have benefitted many patients with fewer seizures or decreased side effects, the vagal nerve stimulator (VNS), advances in MRI diagnostic precision that have had important implications for patient care, and an improved understanding of the genetic basis of epilepsy.
