Epilepsy Brain Surgery
Epilepsy Brain Surgery is a widely accepted therapeutic option for selected patients with drug-resistant focal epilepsy. It has been found in two randomized controlled trials to be safe and more effective than medical treatment alone in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy (Wiebe et al., 2001; Engel et al., 2012). Based on this single randomized trial and a systematic review of outcomes of numerous retrospective reports on temporal lobe resections for epilepsY.
The Quality Standards Subcommittee of the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) recommended that referral to an Epilepsy Brain Surgery center should be strongly considered for appropriate candidates (Engel et al., 2003).
