From the Back Cover:

An indispensable clinical reference work which offers a clear practical clinical guide to the whole field of epilepsy therapy.

A wide range of treatment options are available for epilepsy, which depend on the nature of the epilepsy and the circumstances of the individual patient. Identifying the best regimen can be complex, and neurologists, paediatricians, epileptologists and trainees need a clear, concise yet comprehensive guide to the best treatment options.

The Treatment of Epilepsy, fourth edition, provides such a guide, describing all conventional pharmacological, medical and surgical options available for the treatment of epilepsy, and putting them in their appropriate clinical context. The book is compiled by three editors actively involved with the International League of Epilepsy, and written by renowned international experts in the field from 18 countries. 

  • This fourth edition has been extensively revised incorporating the many recent developments in therapy,
  • The first two sections cover the background to, and principles of, treatment in different clinical situations,
  • Section three comprises a series of systematic reviews of contemporary drug therapy, devoting one chapter to each anti-epileptic drug and covering all clinically-relevant aspects,
  • Section four focuses on the surgical options, devoting individual chapters to each of the modalities of presurgical assessment and to each surgical operation or approach,
  • Drug and prescribing data presented in clear tables for quick clinical referral,
  • The text consists of 81 chapters and a historical introduction, and is now in full color with many clear tables and figures.

 Praise for previous editions:

"Treatment of Epilepsy is a vital contribution to the field. The book's primary focus is on the medical and surgical evaluation and treatment of the disease. Experts around the globe who have made seminal contributions to the treatment of epilepsy have contributed to the book, which preserves its flow and focus extremely well.... 'This book is highly recommended' ... 'for anybody who is involved in the evaluation and medical care of patients with epilepsy.'"  (NEJM, February 2005)

"I would highly recommend The Treatment of Epilepsy for neurologists, neurosurgeons, psychiatrists, pediatricians, and internists, as well as nurse practitioners, physician's assistants, and others who are interested in delving into the details of the treatment of epilepsy." (Epilepsy & Behavior, 6 October 2010)
