Completed

Abstract

Deep Brain stimulation (DBS) is an emerging treatment for epilepsy, recently approved for use in Australia on the basis of trials in focal epilepsy showing benefit. The role of DBS in generalised epilepsy is currently unclear. This study tests the effectiveness of DBS in Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome, a severe, medication-resistant generalised epilepsy syndrome.
