COST Action BM0905 - 2013 European Workshop on Deep Brain Stimulation for Tourette Syndrome


In association with the 2013 Annual Meeting of the European Society for the Study of Tourette Syndrome (ESSTS) and the COST Action International Conference for Tourette Syndrome in Athens, Greece, April 26-27, the COST Action BM0905 offers, this year, for the first time, a European Workshop on Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) for Tourette Syndrome. The workshop will take place in Athens, at the Royal Olympic Hotel, on April 24 (3 pm – 7 pm) – 25 (9 am – 1 pm) (for more information see the programme here).

Attendance is open to ESSTS meeting participants. In order to register, please follow this link .

The aim of the workshop is to bring together experts from all active European centers involved in DBS in patients with severe Tourette syndrome. Ideally, from each center both a clinician and a neurosurgeon will attend in order to discuss where we stand now and where to we want to move next. However, this workshop is also open for all people who are interested in DBS in patients with Tourette syndrome.

On the first day, April 24, European experts from France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and UK, will give an overview about animal models related to DBS in Tourette syndrome, completed and ongoing studies, different clinical guidelines, and clinical experience.

On the second day, April 25, we will discuss how to introduce common European standards, whether a European multicenter Randomized Controlled Trial makes sense, and whether we want to build up a European database for DBS in TS.

We are looking forward to seeing you at this exciting workshop in Athens.

With kind regards
