Recently, the US Federal Drug Administration (FDA) approved a new medication for seizures and epilepsy, Vigabatrin. Vigabatrin will soon be available for us in the US with one of it indications being infantile spasms. The question is what are infantile spasms and what can you do for seizures in the very young? In this episode of Hallway Conversations, Dr. Joseph Sirven, Professor of Neurology at Mayo Clinic Arizona and Editor-in-Chief of Epilepsy.com/Professionals, interviews Dr. Elaine Wirrell, an internationally renowned epilepsy specialist from Mayo Clinic Rochester. This show will be taped live but no questions will be answered live on the air.
