SIG: Pregnancy Registries: Emerging Data from The International Pregnancy Registries and Neurodevelopmental Studies

Convention Center, Rooms 318-320
1:30 PM-3:00 PM
Behavioral Health Providers

The Pregnancy Registry SIG will continue to present the latest updates from the largest international registries, as well as from the most prominent neurodevelopmental studies. We plan to complement the registries' focus on structural teratogenicity with the newest information on cognitive teratogenicity of the AEDs available, information that takes decades to be incorporated into guidelines leading to a dangerous gap in our clinical practice.We hope for our SIG to provide the opportunity for AES attendees to rapidly but adequately review the constantly evolving data and be able to optimize their treatment and counselling of this extremely vulnerable group of patients (and their children). To this end, in addition to presenting pivotal data on teratogenesis, pregnancy complications and fertility, the experts invited will give their opinions on the management of several case examples demonstrating how they apply their data and experience to clinical care.
