The Neuromuscular Review Course is presented by leading neurologists specializing in neuromuscular disorders and provides an up to date review of clinical issues related to the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular diseases.



Upon completion of this course, the participant should be able to:
  1. Recognize the patterns of clinical presentation for muscle and nerve disease and determine the most appropriate laboratory tests and treatments based on the clinical pattern.
  2. Identify the clinical phenotypes of peripheral neuropathies, myopathies, anterior horn cell disorders and neuromuscular junction diseases and how these phenotypes can dictate the appropriate laboratory evaluation as to the etiology of these neuromuscular disorders.
  3. Case-based review the electrodiagnosis of common and uncommon entrapment neuropathies and radiculopathies, while discussing their management and reviewing criteria for demyelination supportive of CIDP in the proper clinical pattern.
  4. Recognize the diverse presentations of immune neuropathy and distinguish them from a number of untreatable neuropathies. Discuss the concept of diagnostic certainty in immune neuropathies and current treatment strategies for classic CIDP, Lewis Sumner syndrome, multifocal motor neuropathy and distal acquired demyelinating neuropathy.
  5. Discuss the symptoms of neuropathic pain, management guidelines and its practical management with discussion of recent CDC 2016 guidance on narcotics in chronic pain. Discuss clinical trials in cryptogenic sensory neuropathy (CSPN) and in diabetic painful neuropathy (DPN).
  6. Review the different clinical presentations of motor neuron disease. Discuss recent updates in clinical practice including recent quality measures. Understand results of recent clinical trials and direction of ongoing studies including symptomatic therapies (for muscle strengthening, pseudobulbar affect, sialorrhea), disease modifiers that slow progression and stem cell research. Discuss the latest therapies in spinal muscular atrophy of antisense oligonucleotide therapy and in ALS of blocking oxidative stress.
  7. Summarize the evaluation and treatment of acquired muscle disorders and review advances in autoantibodies particularly MDA-5, TIF1gamma, statin-associated autoimmune necrotizing myopathy (SANAM) and inclusion body myositis (IBM) and discuss ongoing research advances in the myositidis. Also review the approach to the evaluation and treatment of inherited muscle disorders including enzyme replacement therapy in Pompe and most recently in 2016 morpholino antisense oligomer exon skipping approval in Duchenne muscular dystrophy and the roles of other novel therapies such as deflazacort and dichlorphenamide.
  8. Discuss the use of tailored immunosuppressive drugs and immunomodulation for the treatment of autoimmune neuromuscular disorders and other ongoing clinical research such as rituximab and gammaglobulins, intravenously and subcutaneously as well as significant recent progress in targeted monoclonal antibodies.
  9. Identify new tests for diagnosing MG in patients who are acetylcholine receptor antibody negative. Learn new classification grading and monitoring systems for MG research studies. Discuss the use of thymectomy for the treatment of MG based on the 2016 published study, newly FDA-approved eculizumab, and other ongoing clinical research such as rituximab and gammaglobulins, intravenously and subcutaneously.
