199 Answers : A Doctor Responds to His PatientsBook - 2003
This book was written with the belief that accurate and comprehensible medical information can empower people with epilepsy to combat their disease. Epilepsy: 199 Answers will help readers better understand their doctor's language and ask better questions. In the revised second edition, 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.
