We were fortunate to have the opportunity to catch-up with Kristl Vonck (Ghent University Hospital, Ghent, Belgium) at EAN 2019. She talked to us about the topic of her recently published article: Measuring the Effects of Neurostimulation in Drug-resistant Epilepsy and Depression.
1. How common is drug-resistant epilepsy? (0:04)
2. What neurostimulation methods are available for these patients? (0:30)
3. How can we identify which patients are most likely to respond to neurostimulation (2:25)?
Speaker disclosure: Kristl Vonck has received grant support, consultancy and speaker fees from LivaNova Inc. and Medtronic.
Filmed at the 5th Congress of the European Academy of Neurology (EAN), Oslo, Norway, June 2019.
