Epilepsy was defined conceptually in 2005 as a disorder of the brain characterized by an enduring predisposition to generate epileptic seizures. This definition is usually practically applied as having two unprovoked seizures >24 h apart. The International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE) accepted recommendations of a task force altering the practical definition for special circumstances that do not meet the two unprovoked seizures criteria. The task force proposed that epilepsy be considered to… Expand
A Practical Definition of Epilepsy
TLDR
Epilepsy is considered to be resolved for individuals past the applicable age of an age-dependent epilepsy syndrome or those who have remained seizure-free for the past 10 years, without seizure medicines for thepast 5 years. Expand

Introduction to the Clinical Definition of Epilepsy by the ILAE President
TLDR
This issue of Epilepsia contains a landmark paper addressing a topic central to the authors' discipline: “What is epilepsy?” Fisher et al. provide a consensus-driven answer by building on the 2005 conceptual definition by taking the conceptual definition into an operational dimension and provides clinical criteria that physicians can apply in everyday practice.

An appraisal of the new operational definition of epilepsy—Then and now
TLDR
The focus to define epilepsy in the newly proposed classification has shifted from the conceptual perspective to practical application thought to better reflect that which is happening to the patient to be more pragmatic and assist when managing patients with epilepsy. Expand

Surgical Management of Drug Resistant Epilepsy
TLDR
This work aims to review surgical outcome for drug resistant epilepsy of different causes to identify which patient would get the most benefit to determine whether or not epilepsy surgery can be done and to define its chances of risk and benefit. Expand
Diagnosis of epilepsy after first seizure. Introducing the SWISS FIRST study
TLDR
This Switzerland-wide observational study aims to recruit patients that were admitted to the emergency department with the referral diagnosis of a first and unprovoked seizure, and makes use of optimized MRI protocols to identify potential structural epileptogenic lesions, introduces new imaging-based markers of epileptogenecity, and uses most recent postprocessing methods as automatic morphometry, spike map analysis, and functional connectivity.
