Inclusion of magnetoencephalography in presurgical workup improves outcomes after epilepsy surgery

Takeaway

  • Magnetoencephalography (MEG) provides clinically relevant information, specifically in extra-temporal lobe epilepsy and non-lesional cases, which significantly contributes to long-term seizure freedom after epilepsy surgery.

Why this matters

  • These findings, obtained from the largest cohort with the longest follow-up, could be used for selection of epilepsy surgery candidates, help with presurgical focus localization and facilitate long-term seizure freedom after epilepsy surgery.
