The American Academy of Neurology and the American Epilepsy Society have jointly issued a new guideline on sudden expected death in epilepsy (SUDEP). The guideline emphasizes the importance of discussing SUDEP with patients and their caregivers, and uncovers gaps in the current literature that warrant further investigation.
Refers to Harden, C. et al. Practice guideline summary: sudden unexpected death in epilepsy incidence rates and risk factors: report of the Guideline Development, Dissemination, and Implementation Subcommittee of the American Academy of Neurology and the American Epilepsy Society.
