The Masterclass by IFCN was created in response to a call from IFCN member societies for more high quality, complimentary, online educational content. The series will provide a new presentation every month from top clinical neurophysiologists around the world, and each will include time for discussion with the lecturer following the presentation.

Providing the best in contemporary clinical neurophysiology education delivered in the most optimal format is the primary educational goal of the IFCN. As such, Masterclass by IFCN will be available complimentary to all registrants.

Professor Jorge Gutierrez

Masterclass by IFCN: Professor Jorge Gutierrez Godoy will present Neuromuscular Disorders Associated with Cancer, and with its Treatments

Join us for the next Masterclass by IFCN presentation on Saturday, May 21, 2022 at 7:00 am EDT (1:00 pm CET)

Neuromuscular complications of cancer include disorders of both the central and peripheral nervous system that can be evaluated by clinical neurophysiologists. The peripheral disorders may affect nerves (including nerve roots, plexuses, and cell bodies), the neuromuscular junction and the muscle fibers. These disorders can be classified as a direct or remote (paraneoplastic) effect of a primary malignancy or as an iatrogenic effect of treatment. In this review we´ll discuss the pathophysiology of the disorders and their most frequent clinical presentations and describe the side-effects of frequent treatments like neurotoxicity associated with chemotherapeutic agents, the radiation-related nervous system injuries, effects of immune checkpoint inhibitor (ICPI) therapy and effects of cancer surgery.
